A few years ago, I was in school to be a lab tech. We had to buy scrubs in our school colors to wear to our clinical rotations at the hospital. As you may know, traditional scrubs are often not very attractive. I went to Wal-Mart and tried on some different styles, but almost all of them had v-necks (not good if you are busty: I would have had to wear an undershirt to be modest enough for a medical setting) because they are unisex sizes. The tops were cut squarely and the pants were way too long for my five-feet-zero-inches self.

I went online to uniformadvantage.com. They have a huge selection, but I chose the Dickies brand to try because they came in several different styles: flared pants, cargo pants, and tops with different cuts and pocket styles. They also come in short, regular and tall lengths in the pants. I was able to get the elastic waistband pants from Dickies as well, which is different because almost all the scrub pants I've seen have the flat waistband and the drawstring.

I loved the tops that had two pockets on the front of the shirt. I had to keep some things readily available and these pockets were perfect for doing that, but I didn't look too bulky even if I had a pen and some lip gloss in the same pocket. Because the size I ordered were women's/junior's sizes the tops had higher v-necks so I didn't have to worry about flashing anyone if I bent over (and one of my job duties was drawing blood, so there was a good chance I'd have to bend over!). Best of all, the tops weren't too long: they were big enough to not be too tight on my bust but not so long that I was sitting on the back of the shirt if I sat down.

I was disappointed that I had to order solid, royal blue scrubs because there are tons of patterns to choose from and they are updated many times each year (like for holidays), but that was the color that all the students from my university had to wear to identify ourselves. Once I started working on my own I was able to buy the two-tone colored scrubs, as well as the patterns.

If you have to wear scrubs for your job but are tired of looking like you're wearing a burlap sack, these might be for you. I have a hard time finding regular clothes to wear because I'm short but curvy. These Dickies scrubs fit better than any other brand I've tried, and they look trendy as well. They also go on sale periodically so you can save even more money.
