    Anyone have any suggestions on how to hide the appearance of your underwear underneath?
    Support hose feel the best after a long day.

    Just remember wearing pantyhose under pants ups your chances of getting a yeast infection.

    The only time I wear granny panties is under scrubs/ what if I have panty does exeryone else.

    We are not supposed to wear thongs either. But sometimes thats all thats clean! hehe. Beige works well, the best thing though is a long scrub top, and loose pants. Sometimes I wear support hose, but sometimes its just plain a pain to get those things on.

    Kids R fun,, i was kind of wondering the same. Who cares if someone has panty lines under uniforms,, at least they have some on!!!! To many other things to worry about during a working day than whether your panty line is showing or not.

    I wore white and never worried about it. When patients are sick and at your waist level, they most certainly don't look. Like I said. I never worried about it. Also, my tops weere always long enough, they went below the hips. Didn't even know it was a concern. Color me naive. :imbar

    I just have to say, that is rediculous that some schools tell you you cant wear a thong! I can understand the bra, but who's business is it what kind of undies you wear? I wear regular under my whites, but I dont really care who sees my panty line.

    man,when I had to do clinical in my Dr Kildare oufit,I knew people could see the outlines of my fruit of the looms-those peek a boo ice cream suits cross gender lines.
    Only thing I was worried about was if I happened to grab a pair of torn fruit of the looms- now that would not look too cool.

    A long top or lab coat. You can see nude, beige, tan, etc. I decided to wear a white dress and slip during clinical for just that reason.

    The truth is, patients DO notice. I've heard them comment about one nurse who wears white pants and white underpants. You can see them and I've heard patients laugh about it.

    I was a teen in the 70's when those awful anti- "panty line" panty hose commercials came out. Still have a fear of panty lines . . . old habits die hard.

    LOL I think you should go all out and wear *black* underwear and bra under those white scrubs! Maybe do a Madonna/nurse kinda

    I think the thong or nude color panties should work fine though.

    Get your pants at Walmart. Bobbie Brooks for $9.99. You definitely can't see through those. Wear your shirt out and wear a vest or warm up jacket. And if they want to look then, well who cares?

    African Americans tell me that wearing black lingerie helps to not show for them.

    I recently had my fitting for our school uniform and wondered the same thing! ... (well, that and something else, but I'll keep that to myself or ask someone privately) I'm so happy that you asked!

    I've had luck with wearing 'skintoned' underwear (a pale, pale pink, in my case), and getting my pants a size too large, so they're not too fitted.

    I have a friend who used weak tea to dye her white undies to a skintone color - haven't tried it, but it sure sounds creative.
