    When my daughter was a senior in highschool taking dental assisting,I had trouble finding bottoms too for her size 0 body. We looked at dickies hip flips (petite cut, that was the winner), greys anatomy, cherokee workwear and koi. Anything you get make sure they are a junior's cut (NOT unisex styles). Go to your local scrub store and check out these styles then buy cheaper online. I always buy my scrubs on ebay. If you know the style numbers of what you want you can't go wrong.

    I remember being that little! Now I have a problem buying for my plus-size body and I am short. I like the feel of cherokee and Landau. Grey's anatomy seem thin to me. I've never seen those other brands. Good luck, though!

    We are required to wear white for school. Today I dropped by the nursing uniform store and I saw some barco icu scrub pants that I really liked because they weren't thin like most other white pants. They were way too big on me. I might could wig the wait being a little big but not the length. Even though the waist thing would be a little awkward. Does anyone know of some scrub bottoms that would fit my needs? Not so thin? I'm like 5 1' and 105 lbs. I'm little. I have some Cherokee workwear bottoms in xxs but they are huge and I'm thinking because they are unisex maybe? I don't think my program is picky about bottoms.. I saw pictures of the class that just gradated and they all had on different white scrubs.
    I have the same problem! I am 5'1 and barely 100lbs. All the Cherokee and barco scrubs were to big! I really love the new balance 365 scrub pants! They fit perfect and the xs petite are actually the best fitting and most comfortable scrubs I own! I wear them almost everyday and actually gave away all my other brands of scrubs! Hope this helps

    Wow, I have the same problem too! Isn't that amazing?? I'm so small and tiny compared to other nurses! Whoops, sorry, I guess this is actually a nursing website and not a 'I'm so little' website! My mistake!

    I tried on some grey's extra small pants.. But I don't think they were juniors. Do the have womens and juniors?
    They have XXS

    If you can get them to fit around the waist, having them hemmed should only cost a few dollars. My alterations place charges $6 to hem non-denim pants.

    Hi Guys!
    Here's an update...I went to the scrub store yesterday, and Koi scrubs now makes xxs with extra petite length! In terms of fit, the xxs fit perfectly, but the extra petite was a tad too short (I think that is the first time in my life a pair of pants has been too short).


    Hope this opens up options!

    I'm sorry. But that was a little rude.. No one was bragging about their size. I don't try to be "little". And yes, this is in fact a nursing website. And guess what? NURSES WEAR SCRUBS!! holy cow!! Who knew?! Sheesh. No need in being rude whenever I seriously just wanted input.

    Ok girls, I have the same problem (5 feet, 105 lbs) and have discovered that Cherokee Workwear 4020 in size XXS Petite are the best! They are super comfy, low rise, and have a drawstring and lots of pockets. They are by far my favorite pants and I have them in all my favorite colors! Second faves are Dickies Hip Flip collection which are also cute, but I tend to like the drawstring better.

    Thanks everyone for the replies so far. I have tried the cherokee 4020 xxs petite and they do fit very good, like the pp said. Please keep the suggestions coming as you ladies find *perfect* fitting scrubs for us tiny ladies. I look forward to hearing about your fails/successes during your *perfect* scrub pants quest!

    I just want to add that I love the Cherokee Workwear 4020 pants. They were one of the 3 designs the girls in my program were allowed to choose (at least my class got to choose unlike the previous one). I'm 5'2", weight a little more, and am curvy on the bottom, so I only got the xs. Hopefully they'll shrink a little because the xs were a little big around the waist and the xxs I could barely pull all the way up.
