I'm wondering three things-
1) How do these scrubs
hold up in the wash? Is there shrinkage in the dryer?
2) Do you find that they're long enough for you? I'm 5'9" and I find the average scrub-top I've been buying just slightly too short for my taste (above tummy).
3) The sleeves- do they come down on the arm far enough for your taste? I noticed on the site that the sleeves are cut in one piece wih the top, rather than added on.

I ordered a scrub jacket from Sassy Scrubs recently. They are BIG BIG BIG so you actually need to order a size down from what you normally wear, and then it'll still be roomy. No real shrinkage noted (I got flannel) which is funny because I was hoping for some. I ordered a regular size (not petite or tall)and it was really really long (in length and sleeves) in addition to being huge. So don't worry, at 5'9" the regular length should be fine for you. Seriously, though, order a size down, I swear to you!
Another thing - when I got my jacket and realized that I really could've ordered TWO sizes down instead of one, and should've gotten petite, I emailed them and they said to send it back. I did, and a week later they Fed-Exed me a smaller, shorter jacket, and didn't even charge me for altering. Not that I recommend this, but just to show that they've got great costumer service. They make these things to order, so it's not like they just have tons sitting on shelves. They tailor them - the one I got back in the mail was the same one (tiny mark on the collar) so I know it was hand-sewn with love.
