Scrubs - 65/35 or cotton...See-through!?

  1. Hello. I've searched for scrub threads now that I've got to buy my own.
    In my search, however, I didn't see any recommendations between scratchy yucky hot 65/35 ones or comfy cotton ones. Is one better for some stuff than the other? I am to be a CNA so I'll be dealing with the yucky stuff I imagine. Both kinds are probably see-through in white too. :stone
    No more fun undies - only boring big white ones.
    Ugh! I'm also 5'11" so I'm sure I'll run into problems with them being too short, just as I do with all of my other pants.
    What a pain.
    Does anyone have secrets to share?

    The Cherokee brand comes in tall sizes, which might be of help to you. I would choose a blend for comfort and for ease in laundering. You can wear protective covers when dealing with the yukkies. Most things wash out. Some people keep a spare uniform in their locker "just in case", but the one time I needed to change clothes I borrowed scrubs from the nursery (OR would be another place). You might regret white.

    Oh, I don't want the white. I have to have the white. :P
