Scrub pants vs thighs

  1. I just bought my first sets of scrubs, and I'm worried about how the pants will fit. I'm of roughly average size - except for my thighs. I tend to carry extra weight there. If I remember correctly, I bought one pair from Dickies and one from Landau.

    Also, what are decent brands for sturdy females? enguin:

    I preferred the Scrubs Company from california. They are well-made and last and last. I am not an average sized gal - I lead more toward the pleasingly plump especially below my waist. These scrubs fit well.

    I like Uniform Advantage's own brand (they carry their own brand plus all the major name brands in their catalog/online). Landau & Dickies specifically tend to fit me a bit tight around the thighs, I think they're meant for the skinny girls who model them in the catalogs, lol. I like the way Cotton Scrubs brand fits me too.

    UA carries a Landau (I think) pant that's "relaxed fit". More room in the appropriate areas!

    Your username describes me to a T I guess I'll have to take my chances with the scrub pants I did order a size larger than I thought I'd need, just in case...

    Thanks, everybody

    lol... I've used "palesarah" as a screen name since college, when I needed to pick something that was easy to remember and would distinguish me from the multitude of other Sara(h)s... being so very, very fair, it worked And it's easy to remember, lol.

    With the Landau and Dickies brands, I've always ordered 1 size bigger too. Still a bit snug around my thighs, but that's me.

    Thanks! I gave them each a kiss and said it was from you, lol. Bacon is the little brown & white one in the Santa suit, Twinkie is the bigger black one with the antlers (they HATED this, BTW!), they're both Chihuahuas and I love them to bits!

    We had to wear Landau for school - I found them uncomfortable in the thigh area - I was so happy to never have to wear Landau anymore!!

    i think its all about the particular style. i have the same problem and stay far far away from anything that says flair. just doesnt work.
    i loooove urbane bootcut ones.

    I don't like Landau either. They tend to wear thin in the crotch/thigh areas for me. I have a big bum and thigh areas. Cherokee seems to work best for me.
