advice about scrubs purchase

  1. i was wondering...i'm a plus size women (2x), and need some advice on what style scrub pants to buy for the best comfort and look. i know that sounds crazy but i want to invest money in something that is going to look good for my body type and be comfortable and practical at the same time.

    thanks in advance for the advice, and if you have links to websites to purchase from (that may have pics) that would be gr8!

    i'm also a well upholstered woman :-) i've found the cherokee, unisex cargo pants to be great. they have elastic instead of a tied waist....which works a lot better for me (the ties always seem to come undone and i can't really keep them tight enough, so i end up fussing with them all day). i also like that they have a roomy cut without being to billowy. oh and lots of pockets is always a good thing :-)

    I'm the opposite of plus-sized (XS scrubs), but I do agree that the elastic-waisted pants are waaaaay better for ANYbody, of any weight. The tie-waist ones are a huge pain.

    I'm also a bigger girl, and I love the Cherokee Flexibles line. The tops are okay, but the pants are awesome. Subtle flare, form-fitting but not billowy, and they have a wide, comfy waistband, almost like yoga pants or sweats. I've worn mine to work nonstop since I got them

    Most scrubs feel rough when you buy them...that's just until you wash them a time or two....then they're nice and soft :=)
