Choosing a Style of Scrub Top
Scrub Top Styles by Tafford
Thank goodness you now have more choices in the morning. You used to have to put on your boxy v-neck scrub top with a pocket at the chest before heading off to work. You now have more choices than ever before in nursing scrubs fashion. This article will try to cut through the clutter and help you pick the right scrub top to fit you best. Once you have the the information in this article, you can find the best looking scrub top to meet your needs at the Tafford website.
1. Neck Style
The age-old scrub top has a v-neck
and typically requires a a t-shirt
underneath to maintain modesty. Many people still prefer this style. Today, scrub tops
come in an array of different styles from the extremely popular crossover or mock wrap
style that looks like a stylish wrap, to crew necks or cute sweetheart necks that add a little elegance to an otherwise boring scrub top. Many tops today have other features around the neck like ribbon trim or ruffles to give some more femininity to your look.
2. Where to Hold Your Stuff
Back in the day, you had a pocket at the chest, and maybe a special subdivision in it to hold a pen. We all know that nurses have a lot of gear to lug around and as a rule, the more pockets the better. Many scrub tops now offer two large patch pockets at the waistline to keep your blood pressure cuffs, stethoscope, bandage scissors, and any other gear that you need to lug around all day. You also may have the choice of kangaroo pockets that reach all the way across the scrub top and are hidden inside the scrub top to give you a sleeker look. Some scrub tops may even have ‘pockets within pockets’ to give you a better ability to organize your gear.
3. Add Some Flair
No longer do nurses have to settle for the boxy, his-n-hers scrub top. Today’s modern scrub tops have a host of decorative details to help make the female medical professional look more fashionable, professional, and feminine at work. You can opt for tie-backs
that provide more definition to your curves, to fun details like grommet trim, to fashionable Empire seam tops – the fashion world has definitely impacted scrub styling so you will find that you have more options than ever before when selecting your scrub top.
4. Junior Through Plus Size
The size and shape of your body should also affect the scrub top you choose. If you are young (or young at heart), you may prefer a more junior cut that is a bit shorter and tapered. There are also still a lot of regularly cut scrub tops that are larger sized and may hide some figure flaws. Finally, the plus size health care provider has more choices than ever before when shopping for scrub tops. Tafford makes plus size scrubs
in sizes up to 6X, that allow room for the plus size nurse to move easily and complete her work tasks with ease.
Now is a great time to get dressed for work as a nurse. You are no longer forced to choose solely between ugly green or ugly blue boxy scrubs. Medical professionals today can choose a more trendy and stylish appearance for your scrub tops without giving up the comfort and convenience of traditional nursing scrubs. Don’t forget to check the size charts and you can experiment with a whole new look!
