    I used to work with a girl who thought it was cool to wear colored underwear under her white uniform pants that coordinated with the current holiday and she couldn't understand why we all didn't want to do it.

    CAMO!!! any color(s)... the strangest one I think Ive ever seen was a brightly colored print depicting Jesus with a huge grin and his head slightly backwards... We called it "the laughing jesus".

    I think I would have quit over that uniform.
    And in 2010, I guarantee you there would be 800 nurses vying to replace you who would be happy to wear it

    We wear our own scrubs, but the style and color is discussed and agreed upon by the staff, purchased by the company, and then we pay for our issue over a 3-6 month period, so our scrubs are quite nice. But OH, the poor doctors!
    They have the following choices: Mid to dark green; FORMERLY mid to dark green but which has been washed to pastel green, torn in a few places and patched with different colors; Light blue but so thin you can almost see the family jewels; and never think the poor guys can ever find a top and a pants to match!
    The sizing is way out as well. XXL will barely fit a guy with a size 34 waist, and many of the tops are so short they expose the navels. The pants are either so huge they would fit a heavily pregnant giantess, or end just below the calf! I've seen some pretty hilarious combinations parading around our theater... One of the most memorable, though, was when a real hunk of a doctor put on a top that was ripped from just below the armpit to just above the bottom seam. We found excuses to walk past him just so we could get a good side-on look...

    I hate bright orange scrubs. They look like a jail jump suit!

    I can't stand the huge Flower prints or the 3 million animal Zoo print, even if you work in Peds. The huge Flower print looks like Laura Ashley threw-up all over the place, and the Zoo print looks like they about to attack you that's what one 5yr. old told his mother on my facility. Try to tone down the prints especially if you're over weight.

    I worked with an old "hippy" kind of nurse, who didn't wear underpants under his scrubs, I found this out when he was performing CPR and his scrubs came untied (string caught on the bedrail) and down they came! (Roomful of people all saw more than they bargained for)

    Mushrooms4, Thank you for the virtual picture Yuck!, however, I know about one respiratory therapist that likes to go Commando, until several patients complaint. Although now he wears red underwear to proof a point I guess.

    The scrubs themselves were cute, but not on this nurse! This nurse is really overweight and her scrub top was just a little too short...needless to say, you could totally see her foopah sticking out at the bottom!!

    Perfect example of what I am talking about, non-peds ... I call this a scrubs FAIL. Sorry for the blurry image, it's zoomed in and lost a lot of resolution but you get the idea of what the design is. The background color is poop brown (not the "nice" brown someone described previously), and bottoms are black!

    wow, that scrub top looked like something from a bad acid trip.... or Fantasia! lol
