Do scrubs run big or small?

Q: I am a housewife and I want to make scrubs for my daughter who works in a hospital I’d like to know do scrubs run big or small.

– Carlos Alfredo

A: The sizing of scrubs can vary widely depending on the brand and style. Some scrubs might run large, offering a more relaxed and loose fit, while others might run small, providing a more fitted look.

Here are a few general guidelines when considering scrub sizes:

  1. Check the Size Chart: Most brands provide a size chart specific to their products. These charts can give you measurements for chest, waist, hip, and inseam, allowing you to compare them with your own measurements.
  2. Consider the Fit: Some scrubs are designed with a “classic” fit which tends to be looser, while others have a “modern” or “junior” fit which can be more form-fitting. Read the product description carefully to understand the intended fit.
  3. Read Reviews: Customer reviews can often provide insight into how the scrubs fit. Other customers might comment on whether they found the scrubs to run large or small.
  4. Order Multiple Sizes: If you’re ordering online and unsure of your size, you might consider ordering a couple of different sizes to try on if the return policy allows it.

Remember, comfort is key when it comes to scrubs, as healthcare professionals often wear them for long shifts with lots of physical activity. Choose a size and fit that allows you to move freely and comfortably.
