Ok, silly/strange uniform question...

  1. Does anyone know where I can find the thin, tight fitting long sleeved tees that they wear under scrubs in all the medical TV shows (scrubs, ER, etc.) I love this look, but I have not found any of these locally or online. Anyone find something close to this? Thanks as always!!!:spin:

    Try Gap Body, they have great tees that perfect for underneath scrubs.

    Hope this helps.

    Sounds like you are describing long-underwear T's. I wear them with wool sweaters so that I don't itch like crazy. Gap has nice ones. Wal-Mart carries inexpensive ones in the PJ department.

    I got mine at Target. They're usually a year round item and are folded on a table. I'm not sure it they switch from long-sleeve to short depending on the season or not though.

    Wally world for turtles, Target in the exercise wear aisle, also some cheerleading places and gymnastic specialty stores.

    Got some at The Gap Outlet and some at Target. Make sure you get the ones that are cotton AND lycra. They dont lose their shape.

    Where you want to look in Target (or Walmart, Kmart, Meijer, etc.) is in the underwear department. That's where they'll have the cotton/lycra blend shirts that are thinner than a normal t-shirt and are made to go under clothing. That way they're form fitting and not bulky under your scrubs. They usually have a rack of them near where you'd find the camisoles and tank tops.

    J Crew makes some nice ones. Thin, fitted.

    I just go with them or the ones from Gap (little less $). I also found some at Old Navy a while back.

    Good Luck in the quest for your perfect T.

    I bought white and black ones from Old Navy a while back. Inexpensive, made with Lycra, comfortable and form fitting under my scrubs. I bought 3 white and 3 black so I wouldn't have to do laundry in the middle of my work "week". Since winter is coming up, they will probably have them again, or something very similar.

    try Steve and Barry's if you have one near you. Inexpensive and thin. I also got a hanes long sleeve shirt and a faded glory long sleeve both from walmart.

    Great ideas! Especially Steve&Barrys - I had not thought of them! P_RN, that is just what I was thinking of - where is that photo from?

    If you click on the photo, it takes you directly to Target's website where you can buy the shirt.

    Wow surprised no one has said Under Armor. I wore this in the Army when I was in the desert. It keeps you warm and cool. Its got a dryweave technology. It actually helps to prevent sweat (or pushes sweat away)! So for you people in the ER its a must. You can buy this at Dicks sporting goods, or amazon or ebay. For females they have AMAZING sports bras if you work out. It prevents the sweat. So you can't get that itchy feeling after working out. Plus I love there sports biker shorts.

    P.S. Since its winter time you can get the cold gear. In the summer time by the heat gear.
