Ask any doctor or nurse why scrubs are so important during a long, hard shift. Medical professionals need the kind of clothes that breathe, move, and can handle the worst a busy healthcare facility can throw at you. Finding functional, comfortable, and even stylish scrubs doesn’t have to be hard. We have some of the best brand recommendations from our busy candidates to help you look and feel your best on the job.
5 Best Scrub Brands
1. Most Comfortable Scrubs
If you’ve always wanted a job where you could wear sweatpants, the HeartSoul Break On Through Scrub Jogger Pant is a top choice. There’s a rib-knit waistband on these scrub pants that is crazily soft and comfortable. There’s a drawstring and a lower ride fit that will make you look good. We love the fit of the material—so comfy—along with the level of stretch.
2. Best Scrubs on a Budget
Check out the Just Love Women’s Scrub Sets Six Pocket Medical Scrubs, which are, as we write this, just $18 on Amazon. These are easy-going, forgiving scrubs that have a nice cotton/poly blended fabric and a highly practical drawstring waist. Scrubs are super pricey these days, so we like these as an option to quickly but cheaply bump up your uniform choices. In fact, at these prices, grab a couple of sets in different colors.
3. Who Needs Pockets?
Pockets are like stethoscopes; you can never have enough around when you need them. Check out the Dickies Women’s GenFlex Cargo Scrubs Pants. At $24 on Amazon the price isn’t too bad. But what we really like are the roomy pockets that any nurse will particularly love. There are front, back and cargo pockets along with a drawstring waistband. Let’s say this again in case you missed it; there are NINE pockets in these scrub pants. Where is my credit card?
4. Best Scrubs for Men
Men and women want some of the same product features in their scrubs: Fit, comfort, and wearability. The Cherokee Men’s Cargo Scrubs pant has the drawstring waist and cargo pockets that are desirable in both men and women’s healthcare uniform. There’s also a zippered fly and poly/cotton material that makes for a comfortable fit. The color choices are outstanding and they’re less than $20 on Amazon.
5. Do Yoga on the Job
The ScrubStar Women’s Premium Collection Flexible Drawstring Scrub Pants are so comfortable you could do a few downward dog yoga poses in between bedpan collection. Kidding aside, these are some of the best yoga-style scrubs we’ve seen on the market. They’re higher cost at just under $30, but these are exceptionally breathable, cozy work pants. The pants are a triple fabric blend of polyester, rayon, and spandex. It’s probably the spandex that makes these pants feel like you could exercise in them. That’s what healthcare professionals, who do a lot of walking, bending, and lifting, like about these scrubs.
