true XXS scrub pants??

I just ordered an XS Everyday scrub pants from Dickies. They came today and are too big in the thigh area and are too long. I'm 4'11.5 and 94.5 pounds......are there any smaller scrub pants?

Do you have any scrub stores that you can go to? It might be easier for you to get the size and style you want if you try them on instead of ordering them. Go on the Life Uniforms website and there may be a store near your area.

I'm in a similar situation when purchasing scrubs (I'm 5'7" and 105 lbs). I tend to buy scrubs online because they're cheaper (and who wants to pay a lot for something that someone will potentially vomit on??) I find that even the XS size from most companies are way too big (I won't even go into the length issue), so I take the legs in two or three inches myself. I don't know how handy you are with a sewing machine, but you could also take the scrubs to a tailor and have them taken in (and probably hemmed, too) for a minimal cost (at least compared to how cheap you can get scrubs for online).

I'm 5'7 and 120 lbs, but I've always been very petite (I'm actually not sure where the weight is hiding...). I just bought a pair (actually 4!) of Dickies "Perfect Pant" in Size XS. They might not work for someone who is 4'11 (unless you get them hemmed), but for the poster who is 5'7, they would be perfect! They're very slender in the leg too and super comfortable. Not AS see-through as some white pants I have either.

I'm in your same situation I'm 4'11 and 95 pounds and have been wondering the same question you asked. I still haven't found any to fit me yet. have you had any luck with the pants? If so what brand and what size top have you found to fit you?

I am also about 4'11", 95 lbs. The shortest/smallest pants I have found are White Swan Fundamentals. They don't come in a big variety of colors but they do fit well. Also, the Grey's Anatomy flare leg pants are somewhat short. Probably would be ok if you wore Dansko's or a similar shoe. They are considered a "junior fit". Usually I just am stuck doing alterations...
