    As a male nursing student I don't really face the issue of wearing dental floss underwear BUT I do work in a facility where I have witnessed this many times. I must admit as a man that there are a few people who do this that I would not complain about in a million years but then isn't that the point? As for the person asking who wouldn't look in the mirror before leaving the house you are right, every woman I know leaves the house looking just like they WANT to. The point is that this is not negligence, it is attention seeking. To assume that these people don't know how it looks is nieve. They know EXACTLY what they are doing and in a hospital this is kind of sad I think. But then again, after being in the hospital for I while I realize the rules of Karma still rule. All of the female nurses get harassed by patients an "come on to" from time to time, and usually not by anyone that would flatter you When you see them flaunting hoochie wear at work just imagine what kind of crap they will take for it from patients and laugh. They will learn...

    I absolutely love thongs. I wear them all of the time, though I can not imagine
    wearing them with my see through white scrubs. That is too tacky for words.
    I guess someone's mom didn't teach them that the clothes dictate the kind of
    undergarments needed.

    I don't know all red is definately going to make them stand out as students.

    My program was pretty specific on dress code. White shirt with a collar, white pants- not of denim type material and white undies, guys all required to wear a t-shirt under the shirt as well. We also had this lovely blue smock we wore- burned them at the party we had when we finished.

    I'm such a geek-I went supply shopping today and had so much fun buying shoes and penlights. I must be demented.

    Anyway...

    Have a happy day,

    Well, good thing you benefited from that! We have green tops with khaki trim, and khaki pants. We were told to bend over in front of the mirror to see how it looks before leaving. :chuckle ANYTHING but white. The scrubs we tried on for sizing were white and I felt I was draped in sheets. Next thing you know people will be wearing their scrub pants low with their cheeks showing out the top. (Think Paris Hilton). I'm sure it's happened already!

    And you aren't the only geek. I'm one, too. I love shopping for my supplies. Good luck!

    i don't understand how anyone can comfortably wear butt-floss to work in.

    butt floss...omg!
    anyway, i think if you're gonna have to wear white bottoms then a tunic top might work with whatever undies you wear because it covers the rear. but to play it safe...nude colored boyshorts are the answer.
    as far as the love of uniform shopping i am guilty as charged...it makes me feel special

    Very insightful, JimmyMallo, and I think you're right.

    "Hoochie-wear" ... LOL
