New work uniform and I am having trouble with people seeing my underwear through my pants! I am light skinned. I like the flared type of pants.

Any suggestions to feel a little more modest? I honestly even thought of buying white boxer shorts to wear OVER my underwear under the pants, but that is super uncomfortable!

Help! :nurse:

long scrub top, jackets cover a multitude of sins, (lol) and flesh toned underwear. good luck, some fabrics are thicker than others as well.

I second nude undies and bra's! I wore whites for 4 years, and that's about all I own! I was so glad to get a new job and not have to wear those again!

But anyway, most of my white scrub pants were from Koi. They held up well, and are decently thick. Most of my tops were from Dickies. Their tops seem to hold up better than their bottoms... But nude undies are a life saver!

I was gonna say pretty underwear :D But I agree with above, long scrub top and nude underwear. NO THONG!!!! And just try not to think about it too much. Unless you are bending over, which you would be doing OVER the patient most of the time; then the issue you have to deal with most is a loose scrub top neck. If the pants are loose enough, nothing should be visible.

Im a big fan of Peaches brand white scrub bottoms.They have a little flare to the bottom,extra pocket on the side for scissors/pens, and manage to conceal my finest polka dot thongs anyday!

I wear the KOI pants. They are thicker than others but I still wear nude underwear.

Here's another vote for nude undies... also make sure they fit to your body and don't bunch up in funny places. As for white scrubs, I LOVE Grey's Anatomy and NrG (both I think are from Barco Uniforms) ...they are soft and the material isn't so sheer. Hope this helps!

I second Koi.... I bought their Lindsey style white pants, and I get a ton of compliments on them. They're about as "unsee through" as you get. Plus they're very comfy and stylish too!

Ugh. We wear white for school, too. I always wonder who has the genius idea of putting nurses into white scrubs. My mom (also a nurse) said it looks "clean"... No it doesn't!! Not when the parking ramp is a block and a half away from the hospital entrance and we just got another foot of snow!

Anyway.

Definitely nude or white underwear. Some of the ladies at school also wear tights underneath - white, nude or even black - and it hides just about everything. I can't do that because I run warm blooded, but a few of them swear by it.

I DESPISE my white scrubs- whose bright idea was that??

Anyways- absolutely 100% nude underwear. And since I must wear these dreaded white scrubs for another 1 1/2 years I recommend the white pants from Peaches previously mentioned. They are cargo pant style, have a zippered pocket that I use for my school ID and debit card, and they have pockets on the back. I found having back pockets makes any underwear less noticeable.

Good luck and I feel your pain! :heartbeat

Grey's Anatomy scrub bottoms are awesome! Since you're fair skin always were nude PLAIN undies. Print, laces, etc will show!
