Shopping for scrubs and lab coats might not be as exciting as hitting Rodeo Drive, but what you end up with is way more important than a pair of designer shoes.
Because you'll be working long shifts, running around and, well, saving lives, you'll want to find scrubs and lab coats that are comfortable and flattering — because you shouldn't need to sacrifice style.
Being a medical professional isn't easy, but finding a quality pair of women's nursing uniforms and women's lab coats should be. Here are five qualities female medical professionals should look for in scrubs.
The Perfect Fit
One of the most understated, but crucial, parts of getting dressed each day is ensuring that the clothes you choose are the most flattering fit for your body type — and medical attire is no exception. Even expensive, designer pieces can look completely off with the wrong fit. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of different types of fits available in our lab coats, from classic fit to slim to a more modern athletic silhouette. Plus, our lab coats were designed and developed by someone who knows best — a woman who worked in an emergency room for 10 years.
And when it comes to scrubs, you should never settle for bulky or baggy. You'll be pleased to learn a pair of fitted scrubs you actually like can work wonders for your physical appearance, emotional well-being and overall comfort. Nurses need to move without anything interfering with the range of motion. Scrubs that fit properly but also do not inhibit the ability to move the arms and legs freely is a must. While this quality is helpful any time, it’s especially important if the nurse is attempting to help a patient who is in distress.
Finding well-fitted closed can make all the difference when it comes to appearance and comfort. It's a no-brainer way to instantly look more chic and put together.
A Fabric That Works With You
When you're running from one case to the next, performing complicated procedures under hot lights and dealing with all types of patients, sweat is inevitable. You need scrubs and lab coats made with fabric that keeps you dry, fresh, and odor-free.
Medelita specializes in just that. Our M3 fabric can be washed without fear of shrinkage or bleeding, is environmentally friendly, and lasts the lifetime of the garment.
Medelita has spent years developing an interior fabric to keep you cool, dry and comfortable, and an exterior fabric exterior that repels fluid, soil, and stains.
Finally, you'll want to find a lab coat and scrub set that will last as long as you do and move with you, not against you. The Element scrubs pair groundbreaking fabrics with athletically inspired designs that work with your body while it’s hard at work.
And for lab coats, look no further than one of our classic, empowering models. Our feminine lab coats are built for every body type and come in three different fits: a classic fit for a little more space throughout the chest and hips, a slim fit for a polished, sleek look, and the first ever petite fit lab coat for professionals of smaller stature.
