Another one of our great customers, Karissa, offered to take a pair of scrubs for a road test (what would I do without so many helpful customers always willing to give their feedback?) She chose to tell us about her Sand Washed Mock Wrap Scrub Top and Flare Scrub Pants from Dickies. As a busy RN/BSN, Karissa wears these scrubs about one out of the three nights a week that she works. After all that wear time I bet Karissa is almost an expert on what these nursing scrubs have to offer!
Karissa answered some questions about the scrubs for us. She had some particularly helpful advice about their sizing. Let’s hear what she had to say.
What are your thoughts on the fit of the scrubs?
The fit of the top is great. You can adjust the fit of the sides of the top with the back tie, and it actually lets you have a shape rather than looking like a box. The pants are really nice, too. The drawstring ensures that they won't fall down, and the elastic back gives you the extra flexibility. Also, the pant legs are not super tight; however I would suggest buying the next bigger size for both pants and tops if you are on the cusp of sizes. For example, I usually wear a medium in most scrubs (Cherokee, Landau), but with the way Dickies does their sizing, most of the time I need a large after they have been washed due to shrinking.
What is your favorite thing about these scrubs?
They are super soft and they are comfortable to work in; they don't bunch or ride up while you're walking or doing procedures at the bedside. Also, they don't show your midriff if you reach up.
What is your least favorite thing about these scrubs?
They collect lint like it's their job.
Are there any unique features to these scrubs that your other scrubs don’t have?
The pocket in the top, some other brands have started to do that now, but this one is just the right size for 3cc saline flushes.
Have you received any compliments on them?
Yes, usually about how soft they are.
So it’s nice to hear that these stylish medical scrubs are not only cute, but also comfy and soft. In any outfit it’s always reassuring to know that you can do what you normally do without being uncomfortable, your clothes bunching up or your midriff showing and it’s especially reassuring to know these things when you’re at work!
Thanks again Karissa for all your helpful comments!
