I am doing research for a line of scrubs
and would like to find out what nurses like/ dislike about their uniforms.
I am a fashion design student that recently spent some time in the hospital for cancer treatment this summer. I was so inspired by the compassion and care shown by the nurses and would like to thank you guys by providing uniform options that are comfy, stylish and help the wearer feel more 'individualized'.
What elements (pockets, elastic waistbands, tagless uniforms, etc) do you look for in a pair of scrubs?
What would you change about scrubs if you had the chance? (here's your chance)
What are the most popular colors worn by nurses? What colors/ prints do you dislike?
What instruments/ items do you carry on your person when you work? (pen, paper, hidden snack
What are the dress code restrictions at your place of work?
Thank you for any input. More importantly, thank you for always giving to those around you- giving your time, comforting words, upbeat vibes and patience. It means more than you know.

Quote from Marie_LPN
36" inseam pants. Not every one is 5'5". I wish most scrub companies would get a clue.
I'm on the opposite side of the inseam debate Marie..for the love of all that is good..can someone PLEASE make a set of scrub pants that are for us little ones. I stand 4ft 11in..even petites are long on me!! Tired of paying out even more $ getting them hemmed (NO I do not sew LOL)
Oh and as if the Almighty's joke on me by making me the size of the average 11 yr old girl wasn't funny enough to Him, to add insult to injury I am large chested..but I am thin. So in order to fit around the bust I need a medium but everywhere else is a XS or S..so I walk around with this huge shirt looking all frumpy.
So, I guess 2 wishes would be pants made even shorter than they are now, tops that take into consideration that being large on top doesn't mead large in the whole torso, oh and thin out the legs on the scrubs, my legs swim in scrubs.
I guess maybe a specialty line for the extremly short and thinner than average is what I'm asking for more or less. Shorter pants, not as much room in the leg, tops where the sleeves don't come to my elbow.
I love solid prints. I tend to have more blues (all different shades) than anything else.
Lots of pockets!! My clinical uniform has on small thigh pocket, on small pocket on the back..the top has one breast pocket thats useless, bend over once and everything falls out.
Pockets that have something to keep them closed would be great! Not a zipper because that would be too hard to get into all the time, just something to keep them closed and things won't fall out. Velcro maybe.
I carry pen, stethescope, penlight, a couple of small reference books, gum, scissors, tape, alcohol wipes..my pockets are filled.
