Skirts, anyone??? - page 2

Does anyone out there wear a skirt (scrubs, of course) to work? I've been considering one ever since I've started wearing white support hose. They make my legs feel good, but with the pants on over... Read More

    I have a skirt that I wear every now and then. I like the look, and it's really comfy. But, when I am squatting down on the floor to untangle cords or having to do gymnastics to reach behind a bed to plug something in, I really don't like the skirt. My skirt is pretty long (about shin length), but I am always worried I am going to flash everyone behind me!

    I myself don't wear a dress (pantyhose and really uncomfy d/t my big ol thighs). But, there are a few girls who I go to school with who do wear them, and they look very professional. Working in the ER, I don't want to wear one, b/c I am afriad I'll be put into some weird situations. One girl in my class always wears a dress, but for religious reasons. -Andrea

    I wish I could wear a skirt. I'm so short that even when I get my scrub pants hemmed, I'm still tripping on them. A skirt would take of that problem!

    I have never worn a skirt.

    No, no, no, NO skirts/dresses for me..........at least, not at work! When I was in management I often wore long skirts or dresses, but not now that I work the floor and often have to get my 300+ pound body into positions a 300+ pound body usually can't be gotten into (good thing I'm limber ) in order to transfer patients. Just what everybody needs, a flash of thunder thighs and a good look at a butt that leaves the room 5 minutes after the rest of me.

    There was a nurse who used to wear skirts - she is now a NP. I liked the look. Sometimes I would wear a white dress in the nursing program - I hate white pants. At least with a dress you can wear a slip and no one can see your underwear.

    But I don't wear one now. In fact I can't remember the last time I wore a dress.

    Cheerful - I wear jeans to church. :uhoh21:

    I always wear a skirt to work d/t religious reasons.......and Ive done CNA work for about 14 yrs. At nursing school there are several of us who wear skirts d/t religious reasons. Our ADN program requires white, but for work I like the colored ones. I work for a home health agency so as long s its uniform they dont care about color. (And, if they did, hey I work at night and my pt is blind and has dementia :chuckle ) I think the colored scrubs hide the dirt and uh, stuff we get on our clothes. LOL Now if they would come up with scrubs that hide pet hair!!!!!!! BTW, has anyone tried the scrubs made by Hice? Ive seen theie site but not tried their stuff? Opinions?

    I'm with you--pants all the way. I even wear pants to church now. I'm working towards wearing jeans to church. Then my life will be perfect.

    Now that I'm doing home care nursing, I can wear just about anything I want to, with respect to the preferences of the families. We wear street clothes, or we can opt to wear uniforms, in any color or pattern, etc., very little regulation, actually, just so we're clean and decent and the families are happy. I wear pants all the time. I'm more comfortable in those than skirts.
    (I have a patient who is blind and retarded--he sure doesn't care).

    We have to wear hospital-provided surgical scrubs here, but at my last hospital NICU nurses were allowed to wear their own scrubs. There was one nurse who would often wear her white hose, a fitted white t-shirt, one of those scrub skirts that's like a jumper, and matching clogs. She looked adorable and could have easily worn that outfit to a regular office job. She had jumpers and clogs in lots of colors.

    I almost always wear a skirt to clinicals. I started out wearing scrubs, but I like to wear support hose and I couldn't stand the hose rubbing on the pants - it seemed like the pants were always riding up. I am MUCH more comfortable in a skirt and haven't found it impractical at all. There are several in my class who choose to wear skirts/dresses. Added bonus - the patients LOVE it - they always comment on how professional we look.

    I'm going to give it a try. Lydia's has a cargo skirt for $9.99. I can't imagine going all summer wearing support hose and pants to clinicals!!!!
