One of the biggest complaints I hear about scrubs is the lack of coverage. When you reach for an instrument, the sleeve gapes open, so you need to wear an undershirt. When you bend down, they reveal your underwear, which is unacceptable for anyone who isn’t a plumber. When you lean over, the front of the tops open wide, again giving you need for some coverage à la undershirts.
Here’s a challenge for you: get some scrubs that don’t do that. Get some scrubs that fit you well. How can you tell if your scrubs will give you the function you need?
Do some yoga in your scrubs.
Even if you’re not a yogi yourself, test out some simple yoga poses while wearing your scrubs to see how they fit when you have contorted your body into wacky positions.
So what are you waiting for? Put on your new set of scrubs and try out these four poses so you can see if they stand up to the test of fitting you while you work.

2. Mountain pose
3. Downward dog
