    Proper name is the NHS (National Health Service) nursing uniform, but there really isn't a standard colour for each grade rank for the whole of the UK. What holds true in Wales, is not the same in London and so forth. Normally however matrons wear darkish blue with ward sisters various shades of light blue, and or blue with small stripes, etc.
    You can see what the unform looks like without the belt here:http://www.brentwooduniforms.co.uk/s...ucts.asp?id=13

    Many places are doing away with various coloured uniforms and going with caps or stripes or something else to indicate rank. Being UK there has to be some sort of "Upstairs/DownStairs" aspect don't you know! The belt isn't that tight, or supposed to be, I mean it is not like one is wearing a corset. I've seen starched whites and or student uniforms here in the States that were far more restrictive.

    I think it looks very much like the Aeroflot stewardess uniforms from the 70s!

    I wore a scrub top similar to that for school. But the color wasn't as nice. My uniform had a collar, zipper front opening, 2 front pockets at the waist, pocket at the breast area, and a some where to attach your name tag to.

    This was my uniform for school. Almost similar in style to the one you're looking for but they don't have many colors available. http://www.doveapparel.com/products.asp?product_id=13#

    I think this is cute, it cinches at the waist...
