You’ll wish you were on-call every day.
These scrubs feel amazing to the touch. They’re made of 72% polyester, 21% rayon, and 7% spandex. They won’t be like the hospital scrubs we’re all used to, with the stiff starchy texture. The rayon makes it feel super soft AND the polyester makes it cool to the touch.
Normally I feel really frumpy in scrubs, but these are so chic and fitted. You’ll want to wear these on a daily basis. The Catarina top is nicely tapered at the waist so you don’t feel like you’re in a potato sack. The Kade bottom has a straight-leg cut, so it’s flattering for all body types and pairs really well with sneakers.
The Catarina top has one breast pocket for your cellphone or a scribbled note of patient MRNs. The Kade pants have two regular pockets and one cargo pocket on the thigh (there’s technically two cargo pockets but they’re right on top of each other). You can fit more than enough gauze, ACE wraps, and pens in there. And did I mention that these are completely WRINKLE-FREE?? Seriously. I forgot to fold them after I did the laundry and they literally were in a crumpled pile for a few days before I wore them. NO WRINKLES.
I’m about 5’3″ size 0-2, and prefer the top in XXS and the bottom in petite XS. I also tried the bottom in regular XS (pictured here) and it just grazes the floor, which would be gross/inconvenient for the hospital. You might be able to get away with regular length if you’re wearing platform crocs or Danskos (see review here). It also comes in tall for the vertically gifted.
Okay, these are pricey. The top is $38 and the pants are $48. These are not your disposable scrubs. You keep these for life.
VERDICT: HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I seriously want to stock up on these and incorporate it into my daily rotation. You’ll wish you were on-call every day.
