10 Top Advantages of Wearing Scrubs
It’s no secret that life as a caregiver can be pretty tough sometimes, but it doesn’t come without its fair share of benefits. We’re aiming to highlight some of the awesome aspects of wearing scrubs to work every day.
1. Being a Kid at Heart and at Work
Depending on the scrub policy at your workplace, print scrubs could add a whole new layer of variety to your professional wardrobe. Many caregivers choose to wear print scrubs to appeal to children or their other patients who may be frightened by traditional scrubs. Whatever the reason, being able to embrace your inner child with fun print designs will brighten anyone’s day for sure.
2. Keeping it Simple
Getting ready for work in the morning can sometimes be a bit of a frantic process, especially if you have kids. However, if you get to wear scrubs to work you can rest easier knowing how simple it is to pick an outfit for the day. According to The Telegraph, the average woman will spend nearly a year standing in front of her closet deciding what to wear for the day. Picking a scrub outfit mainly breaks down to just choosing a color or combination of colors giving you one less thing to worry about on your busy mornings.
3. A Walking Backpack
Caregivers are constantly moving around with scissors, stethoscopes, IV caps, wipes, pens and more. With so much stuff and only two hands, caregivers have to rely on their pockets for additional space. Thankfully, scrubs are made with plenty of available pockets to hold any and all medical accessories while still allowing freedom to move around.
4. Keeping You and Your Wallet Happy
We all love saving money. Scrubs are long-lasting and fairly inexpensive especially when compared to typical business attire. The fade resistant material that scrubs are built with ensures that you won’t need to replace them too often. On the occasion where you do need to replace your scrubs, or if you simply want new ones, head over to our online store for all of the latest styles and deals.
5. New Day, New Look
Some hospitals require their employees to exclusively dress in certain colors. It may feel like your options are limited, but that is not the case. Scrubs come in a variety of different fits and styles from yoga pants to joggers. In addition to varying styles there are also plenty of compression socks you can wear to add more flair to your look. All of these options can help make every outfit feel fresh and new each day.
6. Standing Out for the Right Reasons
Much like a police officer or a fireman, a medical worker’s attire helps the public identify who is who. Uniformed workers are treated with well-deserved respect inside and outside of their office. Caregivers are so well regarded that some people will let you skip them in line for coffee if they see you wearing scrubs. Beyond just the personal benefit, patients also place importance on being able to discern who is who in the hospital.
Another advantage scrubs have over typical business attire is the material. Aside from just being comfortable, certain scrubs are made with wrinkle resistant material saving you time on ironing or trips to the dry cleaners. The wash and wear fabric eliminates much of the hassle of washing and drying your work attire.
8. It’s Pajama Day Everyday
Anyone who has ever worn or even just touched a pair of quality scrubs knows that they are built for comfort, much to the delight of caregivers everywhere. Whereas many office workers are left to the discomforts of business attire, caregivers can rest easy with the coziness of scrubs. However, not all scrubs are created equal, so it’s important to invest in scrubs with a fit and fabric tailored to your needs.
9. Separate Wardrobes
Aside from keeping patients safe, scrubs also keep the wearer protected from germs and any other less than clean substance one might encounter as a caregiver. Some scrubs are made with moisture-wicking fabric to ensure that they stay as clean as possible. Keeping your personal clothes separate keeps your clothes and your home much cleaner.
10. Finding Your Glass Slipper
Nothing is more frustrating than finding an outfit you like only to realize it doesn’t fit you. Luckily, caregivers get to avoid this issue. Big, small, short, or tall there is a scrub size for you. With scrub sizes ranging from petite, plus size, or tall it is no struggle to find a perfectly fitting scrub set for yourself. The addition of straps and drawstrings also allow for an even more tailored fit for your body type.
