This Scrub Jacket Feature Is So Useful, You’ll Wonder Why No One Thought Of It Before.

The other day, a friend of mine (who is an RN) was telling me about her daily dilemma: what should she wear to protect herself from the chilly hospital air conditioning?

The main obstacle for her is the fact that she is required to wear her iD badge at all times, but when she attached it to her scrubs it wasn’t visible once she put on her jacket or sweater. She had tried fleeces and hoodies and they kept her pretty warm, but there wasn’t any place to put her badge except the collar (scratching against her neck all day) or the zippered lining (which meant she couldn’t zip it up).

ID badges are a common but annoying requirement at most hospitals and unless you have a pocket on your top, there’s really nowhere convenient to attach it. Until now…

Scrubs and lab coats company Medelita is well known for their flattering designs, performance fabrics, and innovative features. They released their brand new women’s scrub jacket a few months ago, and not only does it have ample pocket space (and a zippered sleeve pocket to boot!), they also added a small but kind of life-changing feature: the ID badge pocket.

The Ionic Scrub Jacket is the first of its kind in many ways, but I particularly l particularly love this badge pocket. It’s hidden on the left shoulder seam so that it’s invisible when you’r not using it, and it allows you to clip your badge onto your jacket.

Simple yet genius. Count me impressed.

Men’s Scrubs Pants With A Relaxed Fit

Scrubs are pretty comfortable when you think about it, at least compared to the stiff suits and neckties that professionals must wear in so many other industries. Anything with a drawstring or elastic waistband tends to be pretty comfortable, but these scrubs pants for men have been highly rated by almost every single purchaser.

The Modern Fit Men’s Scrubs Pants have a dual elastic/drawstring waistband, ensuring that they are neither too tight or too loose, but just right. They also come with a built-in fly zipper, an ideal feature for anyone under a time crunch.

The material is much softer than what you’ve probably come to expect from your scrubs. The inside of the material feels about as soft as flannel PJ pants, rather than the scratchy thin fabric that you’ll find in cheaper scrubs.

A lot of men seem to have appreciation for the fit, which is where these scrubs pants truly stand out. With the perfect length and cut, the fit actually resemble a pair of chinos or nice pants more than a pair of slouchy sweats.

Wrinkle Free Scrubs

Keep Your Scrubs Wrinkle-Free, No Iron Needed

Dirty little secret: I have a really bad laundry habit. Sometimes, when I’m feeling particularly lazy, once I take my clothes out of the dryer I will dump them all in a pile on my bed with the intention to fold and put them away later…only to come back to my bedroom ready to go to sleep and find a giant pile of clothes still on my bed, unfolded. And instead of folding my laundry bleary-eyed and tired, I’ll usually just shove them onto the floor to make room for my sleepy self.

I know I can’t be the only one guilty of doing this! But it really is a bad habit, because the clothes that end up on my floor usually end up getting stepped on or mixed in with dirty clothes. Meaning I end up having to rewash the clothes that I already put through the laundry! It’s a waste of time and resources.

What I should be doing – and everyone else who *sometimes* does this – is just take the time to fold my laundry as soon as it’s out of the dryer, while it’s still a little warm.

Why?

When your laundry just sits in a heap on the bed, even if just for an hour or two, it’s more than likely that it will get wrinkled. Then comes the ironing, another pain in the butt and a huge time-eater.

For medical professionals who are short on time and high on responsibilities, you may not always have time to fold your laundry right as soon as it’s done. If this is the case for you, your best option is to find a quality pair of low-maintenance scrubs that are made in a wrinkle free fabric, like these ones.

When you are in a rush and your laundry comes out of the dryer, just take a minute to sort out your scrubs from the rest and put them on a hanger or lay them out flat. Voila! you have wrinkle-free scrubs that don’t require any ironing, saving you some valuable time and making your pre-work routine a little easier.

Softest Scrubs Ever

Here’s Why Medelita Physician Scrubs Are Softer Than Any Other Brand

If you’ve been following this blog, you know we have a strong preference for Medelita products. What can we say? They really are the best in terms of fit and quality. They last far longer than any other scrubs or lab coats, and they’re easy to take care of because of the wrinkle release and stain release technology thats imbued in the fabric.

One of the many reasons we prefer Medelita scrubs is not about style or fit: it’s because they are quite literally the softest scrubs I have ever had my hands on. They are so comfortable that I have even worn them to bed on occasion, and I would even consider wearing them on a long-distance flight.

I recently asked Medelita’s chief of operations why their scrubs are so soft, and he gave me the inside scoop. Apparently, the finish of the scrub fabric on the inside is slightly different than the outside: this is because the fabric is brushed.

What does brushed fabric mean? According to TextileGlossary.com, brushing is:

A finishing process for woven or knit fabrics in which brushes or other abrading elements are used to raise a nap (a fuzzy or downy surface). Brushed fabrics have a soft, slightly weathered, broken-in feel.

You know that favorite old t-shirt that you have, that has become so soft over years of wear that it’s become the most soft and comfortable thing you own? It’s basically the same thing, but for scrubs.

You can’t wear your favorite old t-shirt to work…but you can wear your Medelita 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.

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

What is the difference between doctor scrubs and nursing 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. There’s a company that specializes  in designing scrubs for doctors, clinician scrubs and designer scrubs for medical professionals. It’s called Medelita (www.medelita.com). 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
