Scrubs Drawstrings

No More Losing Your Scrub Pants Drawstring

We’ve all been there – not just with scrubs, but with any clothing item that comes with an adjustable drawstring. Adjustable drawstrings are a great concept for making clothing fit a wider range of sizes, but I’ve lost count of how many drawstrings I’ve had get sucked into the string hole, never to be found again. I’ve also had the unfortunate experience of having my drawstring flip inside the garment itself – creating an unseemly bump in the silhouette of the garment, and causing a serious irritation for those of you who want your appearance to be impeccable.

I don’t blame you for holding your clothing to a higher standard of quality, especially when it comes to your scrubs and workwear because those are the clothes that you wear for the majority of your waking hours.

The latest innovators of medical apparel found a solution to this problem with their latex-free elastic waistband/drawstring combo for scrubs. The back of the scrubs pants are fitted with elastic to give a comfortable fit at your waist, with the drawstring there to provide any additional fitting.

No more lost drawstrings!

What makes this drawstring special is the fact that it is tacked to the inner material of the pants at three separate points. This prevents the drawstring from shifting awkwardly and unevenly to one side, and keeps the drawstring from being lost altogether in the vortex of that tiny little drawstring hole.

hospital scrubs

Hospital scrubs is a large category that includes OR scrubs, ER scrubs, nursing scrubs, scrubs for doctors, scrubs for hospitalists, physicians, clinicians and the list goes on. The easiest way to find exactly what you are looking for is to start searching for men’s hospital scrubs or women’s hospital scrubs. Determine the top 3 characteristics of the scrubs you are looking for. It could be a specific color, features, design or functionality requirements. If you want to narrow down your search even further, you can select additional performance, durability, anti-wrinkle, stain release and other properties. Of course it helps to know what’s available, and compare different manufacturers of scrubs and medical uniforms, read independent reviews to verify company claims and find that perfect hospital scrub you are looking for.

Here are a few examples of the customer reviews taken from Medelita website:

  • “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.

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.
