I'm starting nursing school in the fall and we need navy scrubs that will fit a 41-33-47 figure. I have no problems with the pants, as I can get a large pair that fits the hips and pull the strings in to make them fit my waist. The problem is with the tops! Either I have ones that won't go down over the top of my hips, or if they fit my hips they are 2 sizes too big on top, sort of hanging. I found one Landau that was sort of angled from the waist out to the hip, but they were the wrong color, and I didn't get the pattern number.
We also need long 36" lab coats, and I have had the same problem, I think they are really all made for men big on top and narrow on the bottom, which just doesn't work for me. Contrary to the thread on white dresses, I'm thinking the pin-tucked waisted ones like my mother wore might actually fit me better than scrubs!!
Any ideas welcome. Of course I"m on a budget, but I don't want to look like a sack of potatoes either!
