If you get to pick your own scrubs for work, check out these best plus size scrubs with and without stretch. We go through some of the brands that offer extended sizing and showcase some of the best selling and most popular scrub tops and bottoms.
Of course, the fit and feel varies by brand. Every company and scrub line has it’s own blend of fabrics. Most of these scrubs feature 2% Spandex for stretch. Some brands offer a higher percentage of Spandex for even more stretch. More stretch can be more comfortable but also have a tighter fit.
With cotton/polyester or stretch scrubs, buy tops and bottoms in the same fabric to ensure that colors will match. Scrub pants tend to run long so hem them for the best fit. Some brands offer petite and tall sizes but most don’t. Tafford goes up to size 6x while most go up to 5x.
If there is a uniform store in your area, your best bet is to check it out and try on as many options as possible in person before ordering online. Most retailers offer free returns but not free shipping. Get a deal with eBates because these stores offer 3-5% back.
