Scrubs Make Me Crazy (long rant) - page 4

I'm 24. I'm 5'5" - 44-35-44. No shrinking violet, but not a bruiser, either. I live in skinny jeans and fitted tops and I like looking remotely "female" when I step out of the house. ... Read More

    The camel toe (or as my Canadian friend calls it moose knuckles lol) is a problem I find a lot of nurses are having (not just female). Also to the poster who said that men must design scrubs you obviously are not a male! Scrubs are most definitely designed for women. Men DO NOT like to pull the pants up to your chest! I take issue with the fact that the tops also make men look like blobs. They are the same shape from arse to elbow! Straight up and down. (contrary to popular belief men do like to feel attractive at work too after all we are surrounded by mostly attractive women)

    Ever look into Baby Phat scrubs? Some are 'stretchy' so they curve to you if you get the right fit/size.

    interesting thread. You really should 1. do more cardio and 2. learn how to tailor.

    Im a dude and I can work a sewing machine, its really not that hard. Im short and skinny (5'5" 130lbs 28"waist) so finding clothes that fit me has always been a problem (I often buy clothes from Japan or England because thier M is a US S (A US Small is a Japanese Large))

    What I hate about scrubs are the cutesy patterns of cuddly bears or flower pots, or yellow snails...really?

    anyway, find a good seamstress/tailor and they will be your best freind. Seriously you will end up naming your first child after them.

    I'm 5'7" with a 42" chest, I don't know my waist and hip measurements and I don't care to! Anyway, I've found the most success with Cherokee Workwear pants, they seem to be cut for gals with hips, and yes, some have the "three in slit" in the side, but a few simple stiches could solve that issue! As for the tops, the best ones for me seem to be from either Cherokee or WalMart, I know, I know, but sometimes you've got to look outside the box!

    Or, if you can at least find the pants that you can live with, find a seamstress and have some tops custom made. You'll have patterns that noone else has and the necklines, etc. can be customized for your tastes. I've not ventured this far, but one of the girls I work with has a large chest and is pretty small in the rest of her body (almost to Pam Anderson preportions) and she's made her own, otherwise she would have wound up looking like she was hiding a family in her tops!

    I agree! I'm 5'6" and 130 lbs. I am NOT well endowed. Sadly I bought some tops I thought would be stylish but the cut has patients and random people at the gas station and grocery store asking me when I am due. Grrrr!

    Wow, someone could just as easily tell you to eat a sandwich...but they're probably not that rude

    "Urbane. Also a heart-breaker, this one. They get the closest to 'modern' fit of all brands I've tried thus far. Unfortunately, they're clearly designed by non-medical professionals and thus have no pockets. My heart breaks when I find awesome-fitting Urbane pants with NO POCKETS ANYWHERE. It's like a magic trick - guess where all the pockets have gone? And the catch is that they never existed in the first place. Sob."

    I had the same sentiments about urbane pants today!! What in the heck am I going to put my damn flushes? Pockets are important!! Then I realized that perhaps unit clerks, medical assistants, etc may not have a need for too many (pant) pockets. my tid bit.
