One of the most common complaints about why scrubs don’t fit well is poor drawstrings. Most scrubs pants don’t have a happy medium: they either have an elastic waistband, or there is a shoelace-like drawstring.
These options aren’t great. At best, they keep your scrubs pants from falling down your hips, and at worst they don’t even do that! Moreover, when scrubs are made cheaply like this, they just don’t fit well and probably aren’t very flattering or professional looking.
Fortunately, this brand of scrubs has come up with a drawstring-elastic band combo that is perfect because it allows you to adjust the tightness of your waistband if necessary, but you can also just tie the drawstring without cinching it tighter if you are a bit small and between sizes.
The best part is that the drawstrings are double looped. Meaning you can rest assured that you won’t have to fish out the end of your drawstring with a wire hanger after it gets sucked into the hole of your drawstring band. And for men there is even a zipper option so that they are more like regular pants than prison jumpsuits!
