Can anyone recommend some Plus Sized scrubs that are not too hot, will not fade too badly, and look decent? I like the Wonderwink Plus material, but am between sizes, one is way too big and the other way too small. I prefer darker colors.

I'm plus sized also and I have to have Navy scrubs for work.  I have had success with 3 brands (I wear size 3x).  Epic, which I believe is the store brand of ScrubPro.  HH Works which I also bought at ScrubPro in-store (they are also online).  And a brand called Easy Stretch by Buttersoft that I got from a website called uniform advantage. I don't like buying from Uniform Advantage too much because my first set of scrubs came with a tear and it was like pulling teeth to get them to tell me what the process was to get a replacement.  I was originally told that I would have have to pay the shipping for the return and when I refused they agreed to send a replacement for free.  Hope that helps! 

 

P.S.  I'm 5' 7" and for whatever reason the Regular length scrub pants are on average 4 inches too long.  I have to buy Petite length or I have to hem the pants myself.

I had an issue with UA once also, they sent pants with a very obvious manufacturer defect seam not sewn together down the inner leg, and they were very difficult to deal with, refused to help, and told me to contact the manufacturer who kept sending me back to UA saying they should return or refund. They were very unhelpful. The manufacturer was great and ended up calling UA to make them refund me, then they sent me a free set of scrubs and a bag. They suggested shopping elsewhere. lol.

That's awful!  Poor customer service is a big no for me.

 

I also spoke to another plus-ish sized nurse, she said that her Grey's Anatomy scrubs fell apart fast.

Do HH run true to their size chart? The purple label ones have a nice cut

One word: Dickies. Their prints are meh, but solid colors last and the scrubs are very well made. They wear like cast iron

I really like my Carharrt Cross Flex.  I also wear Navy, and the color stays true after over a year of washing.  The fit is comfy and loose enough, without being baggy - I have just the right amount of room to move.  I wore a 3x top and 2x bottom, and now 2x top and XL bottom.  Each size I've purchased has fit nicely for the size I was.

Dickies are the best !!! Betsey Johnson just came out with a new line and the sizing and fit are good for plus size. I heard Med Couture goes all the way up to 5xl.

Fundemental unisex scrubs are great as well! they go up to size 7x which is hard to find. Dickies like someone else mentioned are awesome as well! They are super strong and durable! I shop on Murse World.  They have great customer service and free returns. They are also super easy to deal with...
