I’m a big fan of Dansko®. They make great shoes, and now they now have a great healthcare apparel line. I recently had a chance to check out a pair of their new scrubs.
From personal experience, the first thing you’ll notice about the scrubs is the fabric quality. It is soft and stretchy and just feels good, which I’d expect nothing less of Dansko®. You can mix and match the top and bottom styles to fit your personal style or whatever you’re feeling for that day. (I prefer the “Gwen” top and “Gail” bottoms.) The fabric wicks away liquids, including sweat, which is a necessity for nurses and other healthcare professionals. I love all the pockets – front panel on the tops and “regular” pant pockets as well as side-leg pockets on the bottoms (the “Gail” style, at least). The pockets are just deep enough to hold everything but not too deep that you’re buried up to your mid-forearm searching for items that have settled in the crevices.
The reason I love the “Gail”-style pants so much is because it has a real button and zipper, and includes an elastic wasteband on the back. They look a lot like regular pants but with the elastic band in the back, you don’t get any of that weird gap when you bend over or squat down. You know what I mean. No one needs to see your underwear at work. No one. In addition, the fabric itself is a little stretchy, so it moves with you, not against you. The “Gwen”-style top is adjustable in the back, cinching in your waistline just where you want it. Of course, I chose a bit more feminine styles, but Dansko® has more masculine and unisex options, as well. And, you can choose from a plethora of colors and patterns depending on your style or dresscode policy.
