I don't know what it is about our hospital issued scrubs - but I adore them. Here's what I love about them:

-Drawstring waist
-S~O~F~T fabric from multiple washings.
-2 pockets, both big enough to hold my notes and pens

Thanks for asking!

Kim - have you read the book, "Running With Scissors"? In it, the crazy mom sneaks maxi-pads into the shoulders of her jacket to get just the lift she needs... so crazy it just might work on your lab coats!

A size XS?? If I said I hated you would you take it personally?

Thumbs down

I would love to have scrubs whose fabric had just a little bit of stretch to it. Not like jogging pants or anything like that. But a tiny bit of stretch so it is more comfortable to bend and move. Especially with the "stylish" more fitted scrubs. I am always worried that I am going to rip the but out of my scrubs when climbing up on a bed to transfer a patient.

Haha, the XS is the smallest size and I think a lot of my classmates have the same pants. They are absolutely huge!

I know what you mean LittleBird. My pants are extremely baggy but I'm actually glad they are! I don't think too tight pants are great, but I think if you can do lunges/squats in the pants, then you're good to go.

Yeah, I go with the baggy ones as well.... but they're not always all that comfortable. Really, I find that either scrubs are too tight or too baggy. No happy medium.

My pants have the deepest pockets too! I love them! I don't even wear my stethoscope anymore, I just stuff it into my pants pocket. I think scrubs should be kept simple and clean and not too flashy with prints too.

I want scrubs that make me look young again. They also must be totally stain resistant, and available in a wide variety of cute colors and patterns.

I like lots of pockets, but deep pockets. I like cargo pants that have multiple pockets and I like tops that have two pockets. The breast pocket doesn't work for me because everything falls out. I also wear a sleeveless jacket (white so I can wear it with everything) that has two pockets too.

I have to agree with the length of the scrubs. Mine are always too long because petite length is hard to find. I like elastic waists and a pocket to put my stethescope in instead of wearing it around my neck would be priceless......as long as it stays in there.

Thank you so much for caring!

the best pair of scrubs that I have, the top had 3 pockets, all at the waist level, 2 big pockets and a third, smaller one that actually sits inside one of the big ones..it is the perfect size for pens, penlights, it's great! For one day a week I don't loose my pens in my pockets.
I am with the other the breast pockets are useless, things just fall out of them. But I LOVE cargo pants. My biggest pet peeve is that I'm short (not that short, but short enough) and my legs are very short, so most scrubs I end up hemming unless I can find petites, and usually those are only petite in width, not length
