White uniform

  1. 0 For all of you who are wearing a white uniform for clinicals...what is the best color for undergarments? My school says white...but every time I have worn white under white it has shown through. Any suggestions?

    Nude, flesh-toned, buff...whatever matches your skin tone.

    I agree with whatever your skin tone is. I never understood why schools keep saying wear white under garments when you can clearly see white underwear through white scrubs.

    Flesh toned, even a shade darker works well. Just don't wear a pair that say "Hottie" across the back. Yep, had a classmate show up that way one day...

    The real question is, why do schools keep insisting on white scrubs?!

    Actually my school only required us to wear white during our first year. After that we could wear any combo of white and blue.

    "Skin-colored" undergarments. Or, if it's an option for you, white cotton scrubs usually have less "show-through" than the synthetic blend fabrics.

    We were told white, because it's cheep to buy, and white proves your wearing underwear. Lol
    They said who cares of people can see your white underwear?

    So I wore , full coverage, not granny cotton,white undergarments.

    I went out and got white thermal pants and white t shirt to wear under mine. Teacher suggested white leggings but I couldn't find any of those. I just don't like the idea of anyone being able to see my undergarments.

    We were told the reason for whites was to preserve a tradition...and they told us to be thankful it wasn't still white nurse's dresses, white hose, and paper caps. Although believe it or not, there's a girl in the BSN program who DOES WEAR JUST THAT. She mystifies us all.
