Flattering/Stylish Uniforms

  1. Does anyone know where I can purchase stylish looking uniforms online? It seems as if all the nursing uniforms out there are boxy and very unflattering! Thank you!!!!

    Absolutely...we could all be cleaners as far as the patients go!
    Not that there is anything wrong with being a cleaner... my hubby did it for a while... but you know....

    I worked in a nursing home on the Brisbane River while I was doing my training. They decided to change the uniform in August of one year, and they must have let the Ekka winds get to their heads when they picked 'em.

    Dull green with grey trim for the blouses - buttoned to the neck with a little bow-tie thingy - and grey wool skirts. Pants weren't an option, and pantihose had to be worn. The best bit? No uniform allowance and they weren't supplied, so instead of our $35 polycotton dresses or embroidered polo shirts and pants, we had to buy $70 tops and $80 skirts which had to be dry-cleaned.

    Anyone who's worked in Oz knows you can't get away with wearing a uniform day after day without needing a wash like they do in some cold climates (I've seen it done, no need to get antsy about hygiene aspects/infection control!). Brisbane. No air-con. 40-odd degrees by morning tea some days.

    Luckily I left before they introduced it - refused to give me my holidays so I could go on my final prac, even though there was nobody else off.

    I love the RFDS uniforms - navy long shorts or pants with belt, and smart chambray shirt with embroidery. Comfy, cool, practical and doesn't show the dirt when you fall off the wing of the bug-splatter coz you're a clumsy fool

    Uniform City has a website. I buy all of my scrubs thru them.
