Help! I can't find scrubs that fit anywhere!

Posted

I am having similar probs to C T Pixie. I am 5'0'' and 95 lbs, but I have no bust at all (barely a B cup). Finding scrubs that fit are driving me mad!! I have even ordered a xxsmall set of unisex scrubs off the internet but they are humungous! I don't care as much about the length of the pants as much as I do about the comfort or the danger of snagging a sleeve on something and causing physical damage to myself or others. I would like to find a set of child-size scrubs (since I can wear a boys size Large), but that is tanking out too.

I have another problem...I'm flat broke right now. So my question is: Does anyone know where to find reasonably priced ultra small scrubs (smaller than xsmall in scrub tops anyway)? i am literally the size of a small boy or a young asian girl, but I'm 26 and want to be taken seriously. This is an ongoing problem of mine and I may just have to resort to tailor-made clothes, but that is just so expensive. I am going to look into trying on some xsmall dickie pant scrubs as soon as I can afford to drive to a scrub store (gas is outrageous). I think the real problem lies in finding a top that fits though. Any help is greatly appreciated

Can you just wear plain colored T-shirts? I'm sure your local Walmart or Target has just small plain colored T-shirts so at least for now you would have tops to wear. Just a suggestion.

Hi CT Pixie here :D

Do you happen to have a Work n Gear somewhere near you?? I am shorter and weight around your weight. The Work n Gear XS scrub tops (I think they are called RX Gear) and bottoms fit me. The S tops are still a bit big on me (C cup here) but they are bearable. They do carry XS tops but I find them to be uncomfortably tight. I can honestly say I've never had a problem with the top getting caught on anything in the S size. Its doubtful you will find a "fitted" scrub top that fits you in the way a T-shirt fits, they will still "flare" out a bit at the middle and bottom. Scrubs just aren't made to be like a fitted t-shirt.

BTW the scrubs at Work n Gear are pretty cheap $9.98 for a top or bottom. They wash well and don't wrinkle that bad.

Here's a link for Work n Gear (they do online ordering)

The bottoms (they do have XSP in limited colors but there are quite a few different colors) http://www.workngear.com/cgi-bin/frontrunner.cgi?ri=111&rc=WKNG&rs=T&ro=T&nid=59&pln=&brd=RXGR&nid=59&sid=9101&whs=&bu=0&ki=&ctc=8

Heres for the tops (XS is small! Very tight on me. Hard to get off type tight LOL) http://www.workngear.com/cgi-bin/frontrunner.cgi?ri=111&rc=WKNG&rs=T&ro=T&nid=59&pln=&brd=RXGR&nid=59&sid=9777&whs=&bu=0&ki=&ctc=10

tafford.com has an extra extra small listed for some of their scrub tops

Here are some kids scrubs: http://www.gelscrubs.com/classickids.html

They aren't that cheap though.

I'm 5'2'' and 115, and an xs in dickies drawstring pants fits me perfectly, but in the hipflip and other non-drawstring styles an xs is too small. So the drawstring styles might still be baggy on you but the other ones stand a good chance of fitting.

Unisex scrubs are NOT going to fit.

Urbane has some very nice scrubs in very small sizes, and I think Peaches (one of them) has an FX line.

Look for junior fits.

Thank ya'll for all your help! I will be checking out all the website posts for some cheap scrubs! I'm so glad to hear there are scrubs that may fit in a small size. I ran into someone who also told me I should check out Wal-mart for scrubs but I don't know about that (doubtful they have tiny sizes). Maybe I'll swing by and check it out when there's time. I am definitely sending back the unisex scrubs though, what a waste. Take care all :D

Save your time and gas...Wal-Mart will NOT have scrub bottoms to fit you. Even their tops are a bit on the larger side.

I went to Wal-Mart (its seconds from me) and although they did have XS bottoms, they still were big on me.

BUT I picked up a scrub top (white with red hearts on it to wear around Valentine's Day) and let me tell you that top was THE softest scrub top I have ever felt! From day one, before I even washed it, it was soft, soft, soft. It wore well, washed well, and it tends not to wrinkle when left in the dryer where my other scrubs did.
