    Once when I sent a student home for having inappropriate under garments on the student said "You can't tell that I have a thong on just by looking at me." I replied "I hope you have a thong on. It looks like you have no underpants on because all of your cellulite dimples are showing through your ill fitting tight pants!"

    Some people do not realize how bad they look in a thong. Granted I am sure there are plenty of students on my clinical rotation who do wear a thong to clinical but it doesn't hang out over the top of their pants, nor do they have cellulite shining through their pants so I do not notice it.

    my nursing school has the same guideline, however, i was told when i asked a faculty member that nude-colored underwear was equally acceptable.

    i have discovered from the brands of scrubs i have been able to try on, that the white from landau, is the only one that i have found that offers the most coverage. i was wearing black underwear when i tried them on and you still couldn't see them.

    thongs...that is a whole other topic for me...i can't stand them.

    I think panty lines are much more tacky than thongs....IMO.



    Any school that makes the students wear white pants need to get with the times anyway!


    That's why I am so glad the program I'm in changed to black pants before I started there!

    yeah but even more material covering you the better I say = there is always someone who shows dimples and I dont mean their face. Also there is always a crazy nurse on the floor (0urs anyway) who will mess with ya-once she even pulled down my pants at the side (Not all the way) and laughed cuz I had on white grannies-Hell ya I said I aint a dimple showing girl--cover it all I say--It aint just the bigger girls either-anyone can have dimples!

    However they need to realize dark maroon pants are a better option-much less anxiety would be had as students. As a nurse I can wear maroon or black those times I 'need' to. As a student it was many trips to BR to "check". crazy

    I would say that a nurse pulling down pants of another nurse is a type of harassment, and shouldn't be allowed.....not to mention VERY unprofessional!



    Personally, I don't care what people wear, but for that exact reason as you say is the main reason I believe at least wear something!

    Y chromosome for the win! I'm sorry, but I am so very glad I don't have to deal with issues like that.

    I have to wear white scrub pants during clinical, and we're also allowed to wear white underwear only, NO thongs. I can understand their reasoning, but they make us pull our pants all the way up anyway, so I don't think anyone's going to see anything. Plus, you can still see the white underwear lines through the pants anyway, since they're a little see-through. Oh well. I can't wait to wear whatever color scrubs I want!

    they have to be plain white, but i like the way you think!
    victoria's secret has white panties with heart holes cut out in the back...oh shoot was that frederick's of hollywood? anyways, one of those 2 i was in last weekend had them. they were adorable..they were all white (insert really devilish grin)


    we have white scrub tops, ugh. and dark blue scrub pants, and a white lab coat. so it's good for me. plus, i can wear whatever undies i want.

    i think the reason they may throw the undies thing at some is if they have you, as we do, have to strip down to undies (maybe its nakie) and get into a gown for clinical practice.

    We had a panty nazi in LPN school. One day I accidently grabbed white panties with purple flowers on them and wore them under my thin white uniform pants. I spent the entire clinical day pulling down my top! This instructor doubled as our shoe and hair nazi.
