Lab Coats With Foldable Sleeves? Look No Further.

Clinicians of all levels and specialties need their tools of the trade to be as highly functional as possible – lab coats and scrubs included. And in those high pressure situations where you must be as streamlined as possible, the ergonomic fit of a lab coat can really make a difference in your level of efficacy while performing a task.

Renowned for their tailored and ergonomically designed lab coats, Medelita has taken the functionality of their high performance lab coats one step further with their two latest styles: the Rosalyn slim fit lab coat for women and the Bernard slim fit lab coat for men.

The main feature that these coats share in common is their foldable sleeves and back pleat for full range of movement in your shoulders. The Bernard has elevated this feature even further by adding custom buttons to the foldable slits in the sleeves.

We love this new feature of the lab coats. What functional features would you add if you could design a lab coat of your own?

Top 10 Reasons To Buy A Slim Fitted Lab Coat

Lab coats that actually exude professional style are all the rage right now in the workplace, as physicians and other medical professionals are catching on to the idea that they don’t need to accept the baggy, poor quality coats of the past as their only option.

Here’s our top reasons why you should take the plunge and ditch your shoddy old lab coat for a high-performance one that actually fits and makes you look like a professional, rather than someone who is dressing up as a doctor for Halloween.

  1. Well, we just said it…a slim fitted lab coat makes you look professional, instead of like a Halloween dressed up costume.
  2. Slim fitted lab coats are tailor made to actually fit like a blazer or nice suit jacket.
  3. In many cases, slim fitted lab coats are actually designed ergonomically – which means that you still have a full range of movement in raising your arms or moving about freely in general.
  4. If a lab coat is slim fitted, it’s probably high quality – meaning it is likely to last longer and have small design details that make all the difference in durability and professional style.
  5. Slim fitted lab coats have sleeves that are easier to fold up your wrist.
  6. Because of the modern, European inspired design, slim fitted lab coats are made to fit and flatter any body type – from curvy or petite, to broad shouldered or narrow build.
  7. Without sacrificing functionality, slim fit lab coats usually still have convenient roomy pockets – they’re just more discreetly designed instead of gaping open.
  8. There are many options of lapels and styles for slim fit lab coats, based on your body type and personal preference or style.
  9. Slim fit lab coats give you a more professional look, which subconsciously conveys a sense of skillfulness and inspires more trust and respect from your patients and peers.
  10. It’s been proven that people perform better in general when they are confident in their appearance and feel more poised – just think back to a time when you had to give a public presentation while you were having a bad hair day, and you’ll know this to be true.

What’s The Difference Between Classic And Slim Fit?

Medelita lab coats are meticulously handcrafted from conception to completion so as to maximize the customers’ satisfaction. Each lab coat style is unique because of its defining design details and each customer has their own favorite design depending on their own personal style.  

What exactly is the difference between Classic Fit and Slim Fit?

As you can probably guess from their names, the difference lies in the fit of the coat, the way that it drapes upon your body. Just as with ordinary clothing, some people prefer their garments to fit them snugly while others prefer a slightly looser fit. After all, you should have the same options with your medical apparel that you see when shopping for non-work clothes.

Classic Fit

Classic Fit Lab Coats are meant to skim the shape of your body and allow you excellent range of motion with a comfortable, ergonomic fit. The quality of our Classic Fit coats is evident as soon as you put one on – you will instantly notice a boost in your confidence and feel a deep appreciation for the coat’s superb construction. Classic Fit Lab Coats are designed to have a fit comparable to most traditional American styles of clothing, such as a suit jacket: fitted but not clingy.

Slim Fit

Classic Fit Lab Coats have a fit akin to a suit jacket – in contrast, a Slim Fit Lab Coat will fit you more like a tailored blazer. These coats are designed to hug your body to give you the most flattering silhouette, but the immaculate design of these coats prevents the slightly tighter fit from limiting any range of motion. The design of the Slim Fit Lab Coats are reminiscent of European styles of clothing and offer a more svelte, slenderizing effect than do our Classic Fit Coats. Slim Fit designs bring a modern feel to the traditional lab coat and while each Slim Fit style will have their own unique finishing details, a Slim Fit styles will fit you more snugly than the Classic Fit Styles, giving you a streamlined and polished appearance.
