If you are a male healthcare professional, your scrub style choices are pretty limited. You probably have a few shades of blue scrubs to choose from, most of which are made from cheap scratchy fabrics. And men’s scrub tops are almost universally styled with a v-neck that is both unflattering and fairly revealing if you have to bend over and aren’t wearing an underscrub tee.
If this conundrum sounds familiar to you, we’ve got some good news: Medelita has introduced a style of men’s scrub top that has a crew neck and an athletic fit. This new style, called the Radius Scrub Top, has 3 super-convenient pockets and an invisible badge pocket to clip your ID badge on the left shoulder.
In addition to the purposeful design featured and streamlined design, this scrub top is made from their revolutionary stretch scrub fabric. This fabric is a real game-changer: not only is it blissfully soft and professional looking, but it has been tested in industrial laundry settings (70 degrees Celsius is pretty standard) and is able to withstand hundreds of washes without tearing, fading, or ripping. Medelita guarantees the durability of their scrub fabric – they are actually the only scrub company in the industry that offers a full year warranty on all their products, so if for some reason it starts to fall apart they will replace it no questions asked.

It’s still 85 degrees in southern California, so I haven’t yet tucked away my summer florals, but I have been on the lookout for some new neutrals to add to my wardrobe for the fall and winter seasons. Neutral clothing is always a good thing to keep in your wardrobe because it goes with everything, no matter the season. However, it is particularly appropriate for the cooler months.
Medical scrubs come in so many colors and fun prints. But this winter you should consider adding some neutral scrub colors to your professional uniform. The good news is that you can find scrubs almost anywhere in nice neutral colors like black or dark navy.
Here are some of my favorite scrubs in black and navy.
Pilling, shrinking, staining – these are just a few clothing woes that we experience as a result of just wearing our scrubs and lab coats as they’re meant to be worn. For the most part, they’re unavoidable. After all, your medical uniform is meant to protect you and inform others while you’re on the job, so stains and damage will naturally occur over time. It’s just a part of natural wear and tear.
But how frustrating is it when you put on your freshly washed dark blue scrubs, only to discover that your deodorant left an unsightly white smear all over the hem?
There are two options when you find yourself in this situation. Either you toss your scrubs top back in the laundry to be cleaned again (don’t do this – it’s wasteful), or you try your hand at getting that deodorant stain out by hand. Luckily for you, there’s a much easier, cleaner, and effective way to remove these white stains.
Instead of trying to spot clean these stains from your clothes with soap and water, rub at the stain vigorously with another piece of clean clothing (or a rag works fine too). The friction from the fabric will absorb the deodorant and disperse the particles so that the stain disappears like magic! This is much more effective, and gets rid of these stains from your clothes without getting them damp or making a mess.
Blue scrubs or blue navy color or baltic scrubs as they are called at Medelita are one of the most popular colors. Medelita is offering men’s and women’s blue scrub tops and blue scrub pants. Forget the unisex, boxy scrubs. Cheap scrubs cost a lot more in the long run. Read here about advantages of new performance fabrics used in professional scrubs today. There are fantastic materials that are super comfortable, wick away moisture, odor free, bacteriostatic, etc.
Reviews of the Blue Scrubs:
- “I love the material, this is the best quality dark blue scrub top that I have found. The top does have a more feminine fit and in comparison to some of the other brands/styles out there, it is very pretty and stylish.” Ellen, RN
- “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, Pharmacist.
