As a former wardrobe and fashion consultant, I can't help but notice anytime I see an otherwise professionally dressed nurse, whose undergarments are noticeable because they too, are white, or even worse, colored or a print. ... Read More

    I wear white uniforms at work and wear white underwear. I don't wear skin tight uniforms though like the younger people.

    Unfortunately, the only pairs of nude colored underpants I can find are those that are designed for under fancy dresses, and are sooooo expensive! Anyone know where I can get some plain ole nude colored undies in a BIG pack? I start clinicals (in all white) in August.
    Hanes her way makes packs of Nude colored/black underwear... when I was in clinicals I bought our local walmart out of them lol

    What they call "nude" doesn't work for me!

    I'm a black girl so I usually wear black or dark brown undies under white pants!

    White pants should be banned from the universe. They make every one look like this or this

    Whatever you wear under white scrubs, they show - even nude. And I agree, it looks unprofessional to have underwear showing.

    You probably can't do this in nursing school, but white denim jeans don't show white/nude underwear at all - the material is too thick. I wear jeans at work. I hate scrub pants.

    Having something long enough to cover your tush is a good idea, except when you bend, it still shows.

    I actually wore a white dress uniform during nursing school (no-not in the dark ages, just 8 years ago - it was an option) . . .and you can wear a slip so your underwear doesn't show.

    We were told we HAD to wear white undies. I found that nude ones work better. We had to tell our instructors that nude-colored undies work better. People of color should try to find underwear that is close to their skin tone- white is noticible on darker skin tones.
    You can get smooth,nude underwear at any department store, on-line, or -my favorite - Vic. Secret. They aren't that expensive, and it's better than obvious panty-lines!

    What about not wearing any underwear at all? I know my wife has certain jeans and pants she says she can't wear underwear with. Is that a possibility here? Most of the time at my work the females wear scrub tops that cover their bums so not sure if seeing underwear is an issue.

    Well, under white scrub pants you'd see every freckle and pore. Not sure that is the way to go.

    Larry77, unfortunately, wearing no underwear is not an option for most females because to put it delicately, the vagina is a self cleaning organ.
    Sunnyjohn, you are quite right about wearing dark undergarments if your skin tones are dark. The standard nude would not work for you. The best look for everybody is to try and match your skin tone.

    Self cleaning organ...OMG...ICK!!!! LOL...once again, so glad to be a male.

    Funny story, when I was a new CNA many moons ago I used to wear white pants all the time and had no idea that all the girls at work were checking out my underwear. Right before I left the facility for another job two of the other CNA's approached me to inform me that they could see my underwear under my pants and asked me why I wore "tighty whiteys" some days and boxers others...I was soooooo embarrassed...never wore white pants again...he he
