Crew Neck Men’s Scrub Top

If you are a male healthcare professional, your scrub style choices are pretty limited. You probably have a few shades of blue scrubs to choose from, most of which are made from cheap scratchy fabrics. And men’s scrub tops are almost universally styled with a v-neck that is both unflattering and fairly revealing if you have to bend over and aren’t wearing an underscrub tee.

If this conundrum sounds familiar to you, we’ve got some good news: Medelita has introduced a style of men’s scrub top that has a crew neck and an athletic fit. This new style, called the Radius Scrub Top, has 3 super-convenient pockets and an invisible badge pocket to clip your ID badge on the left shoulder.

In addition to the purposeful design featured and streamlined design, this scrub top is made from their revolutionary stretch scrub fabric. This fabric is a real game-changer: not only is it blissfully soft and professional looking, but it has been tested in industrial laundry settings (70 degrees Celsius is pretty standard) and is able to withstand hundreds of washes without tearing, fading, or ripping. Medelita guarantees the durability of their scrub fabric – they are actually the only scrub company in the industry that offers a full year warranty on all their products, so if for some reason it starts to fall apart they will replace it no questions asked.

Check out the men’s crew-neck scrub top below and let us know what you think of it in the comments!

Neutrals For Your Best Professional Winter Look

It’s still 85 degrees in southern California, so I haven’t yet tucked away my summer florals, but I have been on the lookout for some new neutrals to add to my wardrobe for the fall and winter seasons. Neutral clothing is always a good thing to keep in your wardrobe because it goes with everything, no matter the season. However, it is particularly appropriate for the cooler months.

Medical scrubs come in so many colors and fun prints. But this winter you should consider adding some neutral scrub colors to your professional uniform. The good news is that you can find scrubs almost anywhere in nice neutral colors like black or dark navy.

Here are some of my favorite scrubs in black and navy.

Cheap Scrubs Aren't Cheap

Why Pay More For Medical Scrubs?

In an endless sea of options for scrubs, you’re going to see a very large variation in price. Some scrubs are as cheap as $18 for a set of unisex pants and top, others can be twice that amount for just a top or pair of scrubs pants.

To the thrifty shopper (which I know you all are!), the choice seems obvious: go for the cheaper ones. Maybe not the cheapest of the cheap, but you might be thinking something along the lines of “as long as they get the job done, why waste my money on a fancy pair of scrubs that does basically the same thing?”

Well, quite frankly, the answer is that they don’t do the same thing. Here’s why it’s worth it to shell out a little extra cash for a nicer set of nursing scrubs.

The fit and styles

Cheap scrubs are just that: cheap. This includes how they are designed, and you’ll often see that inexpensive scrubs are made in unisex sizes, which is ridiculous considering that men and women are proportioned very differently.

Even if there are different options for men and women, the fact is that if scrubs are cheap then the manufacturer probably didn’t put very much time and effort into creating a fit that is actually flattering and gives you coverage.

Comfort

The number one most important question you have to ask yourself before you buy any set of scrubs is this: will I be comfortable in these scrubs for a 12+ hour shift?

Again, with cheap scrubs the answer is, probably not. Think flimsy cheap fabrics, scratchy tags and seams, and a subpar fit that gapes open during the most inappropriate times (such as when bending over to pick something up).

Performance fabrics are HUGE

The biggest reason to pay a little more for nice scrubs is the fabrics. Quality starts with the raw materials, and you can bet your bottom dollar that cheap scrubs are made with cheap fabric. Cotton is better than polyester, but ideally you should look for scrubs made with performance fabrics that actually provide some benefit for you, as the wearer.

It may seem ridiculous, but anything made with performance fabrics is going to be way more comfortable, less likely to shrink in the wash, and not rip or tear. Moisture wicking technologies are pretty impressive these days, and if you don’t think that matters then try to think back to the last high-pressure situation you were in and whether or not you were sweating bullets.

You’re actually not saving any money.

After all is said and done, you’re not actually saving yourself any money when you buy cheaply made scrubs. Though you might be spending half as much at the time of purchase, you get what you pay for and poor-quality scrubs are just that: poor quality. There is a pretty high likelihood that your cheap scrubs will only last through a few washes in the laundry before they get stained, shrink, or start to rip apart at the seams.

You do the math. Paying $18 every month to replace your cheap scrubs is actually almost three times more expensive than paying $80 one time for scrubs that will last a year or more.

Modern Fit Cute Scrubs

Cute and Polished Scrubs

There are so many options out there for doctors, nurses, PAs, and other health professionals who wear scrubs daily as a part of their work. If you work in pediatrics you might want a set of scrubs with a cute cartoon pattern on it. If you work as a nurse you’ll want scrubs that have a large amount of pocket space for carrying around the things you need during the day. Depending on your personal style and job requirements, there really is a large number of options ready for medical professionals to wear.

One of the things I see often is scrubs that overcompensate for the fact that they usually aren’t flattering. They might come in overly bright colors, or come in styles that are definitely contemporary, but are actually kind of flashy and perhaps not that professional looking. I’ve found that these Nursing Scrubs are actually the best of both worlds: the fits are gender-specific, so you know it will fit you well. However, they are not overly fitted and they look so polished, just like a medical professional should.

One of the other great things about these scrubs is that they are so incredibly soft. The fabric is specially made. Between the high-quality fabric and polished fit, these scrubs are the best professional option for cute yet professional scrubs.

The Best Lab Coat and Scrubs Pockets

Pockets are an essential feature of any white lab coat, and any set of scrubs. Pockets should be discreet and conveniently placed, yet provide ample room for storing of small medical instruments, cell phones, iPads, and other odds and ends that you carry with you all day.

When your pockets are working overtime, there’s a greater chance that they will rip and fray along the edges. Natural wear and tear is an inevitable situation for any garment that you wear regularly, but a high quality garment should have reinforced stitching in key areas to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

This is just one of the many design features that put Medelita’s lab coats and scrubs ahead of the rest of the medical apparel industry.

Reinforced Pocket Seams Lab Coat

As you can see in this close-up image, this Medelita lab coat has a double row of stitching at the two corner ends of the pocket. This is a mark of high quality, as it demonstrates a fine attention to detail, and serves for you to get more utility out of your lab coat. The reinforced seams will hold you things indefinitely without being subject to typical wear and tear.

Medelita offers reinforced pocket stitching on their line of scrubs as well.

Scrubs Drawstrings

The Most Comfortable And Fashionable Scrubs Available

In recent years, Medelita has gone above and beyond to change the standard of medical wear and improve scrubs for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and every medical professional in between. The comfort and functionality of our scrubs sets us above the rest; we continue to go unmatched in fit, quality, ergonomics, comfort, and performance.

The ergonomic design of our scrubs flatters the professional while allowing them to have a comfortable range of motion. Many small details on the men’s and women’s scrubs, while they may seem minor, benefit the wearer significantly. The beautifully fashioned, top darts at the bust of the women’s top offer a raised V-neck that create an elegant, flattering neckline that lays flat overall. Along with a higher neckline the women’s top has shorter sleeves allowing for freedom in movement. The men’s top has been re-shaped for a improved fit in the torso. Both the men’s and women’s resemble a high quality woven short-sleeve shirt; featuring a raised neckline and a roomier chest pocket. Our well designed fit from the shoulders to chest allows for an enhanced range of motion while visually creating a narrower frame. Medelita scrub pants feature many outstanding fashion forward designs as well. Men’s pants offer the drape of slacks, the casual length of your favorite jeans, while having the comfort of athletic pants. Along with a drawstring and latex-free elastic waistband, the men’s pants have a zippered fly. Both men’s and women’s pants have a relaxed fit around the thighs and groin for less pulling while sitting. The straight leg fit of our pants, with a contoured rise, are flattering and modern. On all products, the stress-reinforced sewing details are designed for all-day comfort.

Medelita fabric is proven to last the lifetime of the product. Not only can the product be home laundered, with no ironing required, but the drirelease® material resists piling, fading, wrinkling, and static cling. The technically advanced performance fabric pulls moisture away from your skin and dries incredibly faster than other performance fabrics or cotton. The supremely soft fabric is known for comfort and performance. FreshGuard® provides bacteriostatic, odor-free comfort. With no chemicals or irritants, our performance fabric is promised to be environmentally friendly.

All in all, Medelita scrubs are a step above the rest. Other scrubs brands often have less flattering tops and pants. Their pants have a natural-rise waist with a simple drawstring or back elastic, offering less support or comfort. Many brands sell an outdated flared leg with side vents. Although their tops feature the same short sleeves, they hold a looser fit that does not flatter the professional. Our moisture wicking, fast drying, high performance, odor control, superior comfort, and premium quality is top notch and quality trumps quantity every time.

  • I just bought a new set of baltic scrubs, sadly it’s the only color permitted in my hospital from the Medelita selection ( i wish there were more options) but on a positive note I must say that my previous set that I purchased from Medelita almost a year ago is still holding up really well. It didn’t fade like most other scrubs, no pilling either. I still wear it almost every week and often get asked where I got it from! Andrew, Doctor.

Review of the Medelita Physician Scrubs:

“As an Emergency Medicine physician, I live in my scrubs. They are an essential part of my work day. For years, I have been looking for a great pair of scrubs that would fit well, wear well and be totally comfortable. At the ACEP convention in San Francisco 2011, I was introduced to Medelita company and the scrubs they were selling. After buying one pair to “try out” their scrubs and to see for myself their claims that their scrubs were a great fit and had “remarkably comfortable drirelease® with FreshGuard moisture wicking and bacteriostatic fabric to keep you dry”, I was truly convinced. The next day I bought 5 more pairs and enjoy working more comfortable with the Medelita scrubs. It truly is a great product.” – Mark, MD

  • “I get so many compliments on my medelita scrubs. I bought my first set almost two years ago, and it still looks great despite being worn every single week since then. I have given away all of my other scrubs, and now only wear medelita. I had my name and job title embroidered on them, which is wonderful so I don’t have to wear a name tag in the office. I love that these scrubs are so professional looking, I hated wearing cutesy nursing uniforms, but also hated hospital scrubs that were always too short, too wide, and frumpy all over. Thanks Medelita!” – Niessa, CN
doctor scrubs

Doctor Scrubs

One could say quality of the fabric or functionality, as doctors don’t usually need that many pockets and prefer classic, traditional style scrubs with solid colors vs bright funky patterns.

Leading manufacturer of the high quality medical clothing, doctor scrub top and scrub pants and custom tailored lab coats. Resembling a higher quality woven short-sleeve shirt rather than a regular scrub top – Medelita design allows for a confident and distinguished appearance amongst patients and colleagues.

Reviews of the Medelita Doctor Scrubs.

  •  “What I truly love, are the real, honest to goodness scrub pant pockets. Finally I no longer need to juggle fifteen things in my hands. And although I probably have an average build for a man my age, I actually don’t look like a fire plug when wearing them.These are well worth the extra money compared to cheap, semi-disposable fabric scrubs sold by others” – Lawrence, MPA
  • “I dare you to find someone that doesn’t immediately fall in love with medelita products. I purchased a pair of scrubs for myself based on the soft feel and beautiful color. After wearing them – talk about so much more! I ordered my sister a pair of scrubs with embroidery for her graduation from medical school. It will be her first item with “Doctor” on it. I have no doubt she will be as proud to wear her fine scrubs as I have been. Cheers to a wonderful product from an exceptional company.” Beth, Physician.

Reviews for Medelita Women’s Scrubs.

  • “These scrubs are extremely comfortable and easy to care for. As a PA-C in orthopaedics, I have to kneel when examining or casting lower extremities. The style is cut for a women’s curves so they move with the body instead of tugging and bunching. It makes me wonder how I was able to tolerate unisex scrubs for so long. They also wash up well after plaster spatters or the occasional bodily fluid or betadine from a procedure. Oil stains vanish when rubbed with a napkin! I think the sizing runs a little large, so if your measurements are on the border line you may want to size down.” – Briana, PA-C
  • “I have just received my clinician scrubs and the fit is just great. I’m a clinical pharmacist and my department just changed their uniform color from navy blue to khaki but I’m still keeping my new Medelita scrubs anyway since they fit so well. They are really worth the money.” – Lourdes, PharmD
