Scrubs Style: My Top 2 Brands

Nurses work 8 to 12 hour shifts and for any nurse the shift essentials are probably: comfortable, high quality scrubs, good tennis shoes (read: sneakers), compression socks, a water bottle, and a great pen. I’ve purchased and been gifted dozens of scrubs, some that I only wear every now and then and some that I wear every single week- my “staples”

What I look for when choosing scrubs:

  • very soft, lightweight fabric
  • scrub bottoms that have a drawstring on the waistband
  • bottoms with back pockets, which is where I keep my report sheets
  • thigh pockets for my saline flushes
  • scrub tops with at least one pocket
  • hidden pockets and pockets with zippers are a plus

I’ve listed the style names and/or numbers of my favorites down below, just for y’all 🙂

Infinity Scrubs by Cherokee

The Most Reliable

Hands down my #1! Cherokee scrubs are the scrubs I’ve owned the longest (my very first pair as a nursing student) and the scrubs I wear the most often. They are the first scrub brand, that I could find, that really catered to my needs– a girl with long legs. I’m a 5’10.5 woman with an hourglass shape, Okurrr?! Lol jk!

Arya Collection by Jaanuu

The Most Versatile

[Use code TAE20 for 20% off your order.] I feel like Jaanuu’s style choices are just ENDLESS. Jaanuu gives me an athlesiure vibe and I love how they blend practicality with style.

    Heyyy! So glad you made this post as a nursing student graduating in December that has zero scrubs, figuring out what scrubs look the best and most importantly feel the best is good to know! I’ve had an eye out for figs scrubs for a while now so I can’t wait to try this style you posted. I also follow both of the other brands as well on Instagram so I’m excited to shop! Loveeee your informative blog post keep them coming please!!

    I love this post. I am a tall, slim woman so finding the right scrubs can be a hassle. Through out nursing school I only wore Cherokee scrubs and I love them. I’m currently searching for my first nursing job and can’t wait to try Jaanuu and Figs brands (using your discount code of course).
