What is YOUR favorite scrub brand?

Posted

Specializes in BSN student.

Just got hired as a PCT/nurse extern on a telemetry floor (yay!) and I am in the market for scrubs. My school has us wear Cherokee Workwear Revolution brand and they are honestly quite comfortable...but I am unsure if I can compare a 5 hour clinical to three (12) hour shifts. What are your favorite scrub brands in terms of value, comfort, and style? Not in the market to buy FIGS or Jaannuu (spelling?) because I am on a college student's budget 😉

A lot of nurses I work with love Koi and Grey's Anatomy brands

I love figs for men especially the jogger scrub pants.

It used to be Dickies for me until I got a Cherokee Workwear Core Stretch top. The unisex style fit me so much better. I also get the Uniform Advantage store brand equivalent which might be a couple of dollars less expensive for the same fabric blend and fit. No longer bother with prints even though I usually work with peds patients.

I used to be a fan of Grey's Anatomy, but now I exclusively use healing hands. They’re both equally comfortable (in somewhat different ways), but the Grey’s tend to pill and become threadbare in high contact areas. I’ve had my HH for several years and they look great exactly the same as when I bought them.

Uniform Advantage butter soft and butter soft stretch. Low price, good quality

Is the uniform advantage equivalent, butter soft? Are they cottony?

Yes. I love them. I no longer buy the high$$$ brands. They have cute styles, and nice patterns, and a big selection of colors

No, Buttersoft is different. I also get those, especially when they are on sale. UA brand like Cherokee Core Stretch name escapes me right now. It might be Flex 2, slightly different than original Flex.

Awesome. I just ordered some. And they come in tall! Yippy

Love me some UA butter soft! I bought a couple of the scrubs dresses- they’re already soft but washing them only makes them more so.
Cherokee scrubs are not my favorites in any model. I have revolution and a Different model. I don’t like either.

I was totally in love with Med Couture “Gigi” scrub pants but alas, they’re no longer available:(

Figs. Expensive AF, but they are smooth, fit nicely, and look make you look like a clean professional! Best part are the joggers! I just bought another 2 pairs 😎, but only because it was on sale. I never buy them at full price LOL.

When I first started working, Cherokee and Dickies were a decent fit and more affordable with plenty of pockets.

I do love the jogger style and the cottony feel of figs but, you are right, they are really expensive. Plus I need talls, so that lowers the chances of sales. I was told that the buttersoft joggers that UA sells are similar, so I ordered some. I will try to. Remember to post something once they come, to let anyone know how they fit and feel.

Checked uniform labels and verifying that the UA brand that is equivalent to Cherokee Workwear Core Stretch is Flex 2. They discontinued original Flex.

Cheaper Dickier. More expensive kio.

Skechers and Healing Hands/Purple Label! I love the way they hang. Straight outta the dryer, no ironing needed.

Healing Hands Works! I just got these UA buttersoft today though, they're SO silky and fit SO well! I'll be buying many more in different colors!

I also love BeneFit scrubs.

Jaanuu. I buy them when they are 30% off!
