Basic Head-To-Toe Wardrobe For Female Doctors And Clinicians

Just because you often have to wear a uniform during work, doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish while also professional. Here is a great standard outfit for women working in healthcare, which you can either use by itself or as an outfit template that you inject more of your own personal style into later on.

Underscrub shirt

This is a little different than your average undershirt because it is designed to fit comfortably under scrubs without restricting movement, all while keeping you cool and dry. The performance fabric ensures you’ll stay warm in frigid hospital hallways, and cool when you step out into the sun.

Fitted scrubs

Scrubs are, of course, the foundation to most (not all) work wardrobes for those who work in healthcare. If so, it’s probably well past time to throw out your shabby old scrubs and upgrade to a nicer quality set. If you already have invested in a high-quality set of scrubs, good for you!

Wristwatch

Whether you’re digital or analog, you can make your outfit your own with touches of personal style such as a functional and fashionable wristwatch. This is the most sensible accessory, since it does serve a purpose in addition to looking cute!

Walking shoes or clogs

If you’re on your feet all day at work, save yourself from a world of pain and do some research about what kind of shoes you should be wearing to avoid a myriad of foot and back problems. We recommend these clogs from Sanita, which is known for producing super high-quality handmade orthopedic clogs.

Professional lab coat

Finish off your professional outfit with a tailored lab coat. Many brands now offer polished styles designed specifically for a woman’s body, which will ensure that you don’t have a boxy silhouette. Today’s options for women’s lab coats is quite large, with a selection of flattering styles for different body types.

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.

Scrubs For Comfortable Travel Attire

Scrubs On A Plane

One of my 2016 New Year’s resolutions was to travel more, and I’m happy to say that I certainly have. Traveling is one of the most eye-opening and amazing experiences a person can have, and I absolutely love it – but every single time I undergo the 12+ hour flights and insanely long passport control lines, I find myself wondering “Is it worth this insanity??”

Of course this sentiment doesn’t last long. It usually dissipates as soon as I leave the airport, but even if you’re just taking a one or two hour flight somewhere, the process of traveling is exhausting. It’s dehydrating, gives you jet lag, and unless you’re flying first class, it’s basically impossible to get comfortable in those frumpy seats.

To solve the “comfort” dilemma of traveling, I recently wore my softest scrubs pants in lieu of jeans or leggings (if I bend my legs for any extended period of time, they ALWAYS cut off my legs circulation). I didn’t go so far as to wear a matching scrubs top because I’m not a doctor, and I didn’t want people mistakenly asking me for medical advice or in case of a medical emergency, but a simple white tee shirt goes with everything.

I also didn’t have to worry about getting strange looks because these scrubs pants basically fit like a loose pair of comfy pants, rather than looking like the glorified pajamas you so often see in hospitals. Moral of the story? I highly recommend traveling in soft and comfortable scrubs. It will make your travel SO much easier!!

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.

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!

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.

scrubs top for women

Ladies, Here’s The Scrub Top You’ve Been Looking For

Let’s be real: most scrubs look like pajamas. And even more unfortunate, they are almost never as comfortable as a nice set of pjs. Most likely, your scrubs resemble the uniform that prisoners wear, but in a shade of blue or black rather than the infamous orange jumpsuit.

For women working in a medical profession, finding a set of scrubs that gives you the coverage you need is an additional challenge. Since most scrubs are unisex, they tend to be boxy, shapeless, and ill-fitting for a woman’s body: a deep v-neck scrub tops that exposes you every time you bend over, yet isn’t long enough to keep from riding up in the back. When you lift your arms, the sleeves gape open, again exposing you from the side.

Scrubs Top For Women

The good news is that you don’t need to settle for these manly scrub tops anymore. Medelita has designed a scrub top specifically for women, one that is both flattering and functional.

Here are some of the main features of the Medelita Modern Fit Women’s Scrub Top:

  1. Raised neckline so that you aren’t exposed
  2. Darted at the bust so that it fits your shape and curves
  3. Performance fabric that is even softer than cashmere (seriously.)
  4. Reinforced pocket seams that will withstand years of usage
  5. Improved fit so that the top is flattering but still professional
  6. Ergonomic design allowing ideal range of movement
  7. Option to get personalized embroidery

What’s The Ideal Fit For Women’s Scrub Pants?

Like all medical uniforms, scrubs serve a specific purpose. Not only do they differentiate medical staff for patients to easily recognize them, but scrubs must be functional enough to hold up in a fast-paced, high-stress work environment.

That being said, the perfect scrubs pants should indeed be functional, but it should also be flattering. Women in medicine have been subjected to enough boxy, unisex scrubs that make them look like they’re wearing pajamas. What is the solution for the perfect fit?

Most women don’t want their pants to be too form-fitting, but not too loose either. An ideal fit for most women is scrubs pants that are fitted at the hips and butt, and then tapered down the rest of the leg.

As for length, longer is usually better – you can always roll up the cuff of your pants but if your scrubs are too short to cover your ankle, you run the risk of spilling dangerous chemicals on yourself. Pants should cover the top of the shoes and the ankle entirely.

Scrubs pants should be professional while still showing that the person wearing them is a woman. Gone are the days of boxy scrubs that resemble glorified pajamas. Today, there are a number of options for you to shop for cute and flattering scrubs!

  • “This is a great product, good build and great material. Not flimsy like the stock hospital scrubs.  The cut is impeccable and quality is amazing! I would highly recommend Medelita products.”  – Scott, hospitalist.
  • 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.
