I start my first day of orientation for my first RN position tomorrow and my greys anatomy scrub pants are HUGE on me. I am going to have my sister attempt to alter them through the thighs and all the way down the leg tonight. (I'm not one to wait until the last minute but when I put my scrubs
on with this cute white jacket I got the other day I realized I had forgotten how ridiculous I look in them! I look like a 4 year old who went through her dad's closet and dressed up in his clothes. So unprofessional looking.)
I have a pair of cherokee brand XXS scrub pants that I can wear as a back up in case she ruins my greys anatomy pants (haha..... :/ ). I would just wear the cherokee brand pants but the cherokee brand top that I have (also in XXS) is also HUUUUGE. I guess what I'm asking is if anyone knows of a brand of scrubs that actually fit really unusually tiny people. I'm 5'3 105lbs, I've just always been small. I just wore both sets of scrubs throughout school and sucked it up and felt frumpy the whole time. I do not plan on doing that for my entire nursing career. Helllllp!

I'm 5' 2" and around 105 pounds. I wear xxs petite Cherokee drawstring flare-leg pants. I cannot do xxs Cherokee tops as they are HUMONGOUS. Instead I do Grey's anatomy or Koi tops in xs (they dont seem to make xxs) with any sort of drawstring or shaping in the waist. Everything is still loose, but looks professional. I don't like my scrubs to be skintight or too fitted.
This also means that I can't really do matching scrub sets, so everything has to be in different coordinating colors, but it works.
Eta: also, scrubs shrink! Big time. Especially those Cherokee pants. I always throw those babies in the dryer on hot when I'm buy them, and thus far they have always come out the right size.
