What do you wear under scrubs?

  1. 0
    I'm mostly talking about t-shirts, but if you have underwear recommendations I'm listening LOL I'm scrub-clueless...

    Anyway, I'm someone who's ALWAYS hot. I wear a 3x (and shopping for plus-size scrubs is meh), and I'm pretty much always sweating to some degree. I live for A/C in the summer.

    That being said, I'm taking a phlebotomy course this summer prior to starting LPN clinicals this fall. I don't know what kind of facility I will be working in, although I do find most hospitals a bit chilly.

    How should I layer?

    I wore tank tops or short sleeve t-shirts under scrub tops. I'm more hot natured as well. Check to make sure you don't have a specific dress code to follow. :-)

    I bought a pack of men's white hanes tee shirts to go under my scrubs. They are lightweight, inexpensive and I like that they cover when I bend down, so patients don't get a look down my scrub top!

    I don't wear scrubs but I read in another post about old navy v neck t shirts. I wear them in my personal life and they are great. I really like the length on them.

    For me, it depends on the environment. I always assume I'm going to be cold and wear a long sleeved t-shirt the first time I go someplace. But, if it's a place where I know I'm usually warm, I either wear a tank or nothing but a bra (as long as my scrub top is high at the neck).

    I'm always hot so I never wear any type of short under my scrubs.

    Agreed! Always running around! Even in winter I ne'er wear any long sleeve shirts underneath my top but I ALWAYS wear a tank top!

    I don't wear a shirt under my scrubs, I'm too hot, the facilities are too hot, I do not need extra clothing on. I only wear cherokee scrub tops with the knit insert on the sides. they are long enough to never ride up on me. I also never wear smooth underwear, only cotton, otherwise my pants seem to slip down while walking.

    I've always worn tank tops under my scrubs and plan to do the same in nursing school. Our scrubs will have a zipper, so I'll definitely be doing the same since the awful thought of a patient unzipping the top!
