I am trying to shop for my scrubs for nursing school, and I'm having a really hard time with sizing. I checked our (not so local, but the only one around) uniform store, and they don't even carry the brand my school requires, so I thought I would turn to you all for some help!
I'm 5'1, 160-ish lbs. Have broad shoulders/back, and carry most of my weight in my abdomen.
Our school requires us to buy white swan fundamentals in a specific color that is to be embroidered. I'm assuming for the top I'll need a L, but the pants have me confused. I want to order the shorter length. It's recommending a size that just seems so "off" to me. If I go by hip measurements (39/40 inches), I need a M. If I go by my waist (36 inches), I need an XL. I wear a 12 in Old Navy and Levi Jeans, if that helps. I haven't been able to figure out if white swan runs big, small, or right on. The last thing I want is pants that sag on the back end.
