Hi everyone! I am writing an article about the "top ten scrub brands", and I need it straight from the source! I am interested in hearing from men, plus size gals, petites, mamas-to-be, ALL YA'LL. I need the info!

Which are the softest? Which fit the best? Which are the coolest for wearing under all of that isolation gear? Which don't show wrinkles? Easy care?

Help a sister out and share your opinions please!

Thank you,

Swan and Tafford had nice stuff,better fabric.They no longer offer the soft touch fabric which was the lightest,coolest not see thru. Cheap brands left nothing to the imagination, so see thru especially by a sunny window.Now All theses brands have changes quality and owners,Cherokee is still good,their larger size still keeps the nice lines and proportions,wash well .Lydia catalog prices looked good but cheap stuff as far as quality.

Unfortunately, I love FIGS. The price is wild but they are so soft and I'm a sucker for a good jogger pant. Since I work in a school now, I am waaay less worried about my scrubs getting covered in bodily fluids and justify investing in my scrubs. 

Grey's Anatomy, Koi, and Cherokee were my go-to brands when I was working at the bedside.

My personal favorite is FITSCRUBS they are great. No fancy colors or fabrics. Just basic very comfortable scrubs. Wrinkle free even if they sit in the dryer and excellent customer service. They are pricy but I consider my scrubs tools.

I always loves these posts for some reason. 

Anyway - before I got accepted to school I always wore the Carhartt and Iguana brand scrubs. Kinda on the pricey side, but they look and feel great.

Dude here. Figs will forever be my favorite. I've always struggled finding a scrub brand that fit my build (am on the shorter end but bulky-buff) and Figs was actually the 2nd brand fit me perfectly. I think many can attest to say that the quality of the fabric is great and they like never wrinkle either. Honestly, I think Figs has become the "professional" look of nurses and there's just something about it that makes any person wearing look and feel fresh. No other words to describe it. Of course my favorite style is the joggers for the pants too. Also, I would actually consider their clothes to be a "slim-fit" type of style. Similar to what you see on tops and even jeans at clothing stores.

Prior to figs, I stuck to Cherokee. I had only 2 black pairs that I used for like 3 years when I was working per-diem as a lift tech. I also had a Dickies pants that was nice too because it had tons of pockets. All I had were those because any other scrubs I tried on or bought/returned just were too big or too small, top or bottom until Figs came out.

Figs blows everyone else out of the water. Soft material, flexible. Great pockets and the fit is tardily looks professional.

What are the brand of scrubs that feel like they are made out of the gortex or windbreaker type material?

Benefit! Super comfortable, good company, veteran owned, I believe. 

I also want to post a warning about Affinity Medwear scrubs. They were all over my instagram, so I ordered a set. The royal blue is off from my organization's royal blue, so I had to return. They are basically trying to drag out the return until I forget about it, I think. They are sending me dead hyperlinks to generate return labels, and have now stopped replying to email. No phone number or address is listed on the site. I had to open a BBB claim, and then I found out they have multiple other BBB claims against them. Ugh.
