Why are scrubs v neck?

Q: I am a housewife and I want to make scrubs for my daughter who works in a hospital I’d like to know why are scrubs v neck.

– Carlos Alfredo

A: Scrubs are typically designed with a V-neck for a couple of primary reasons:

  1. Comfort and Ventilation: The V-neck design provides a comfortable fit and allows for better air circulation, which is particularly important in often warm and physically demanding healthcare environments.
  2. Ease of Removal: The V-neck design also makes the scrubs easier to put on and take off without touching the face or contaminating the wearer, which is a crucial factor in maintaining hygiene in a healthcare setting.
  3. Universal Fit: V-necks tend to be more universally flattering and can accommodate various body types and sizes. This is important as scrubs are often produced in bulk for a wide range of healthcare professionals.
  4. Practicality: The V-neck design is simple and cost-effective to manufacture, making it a practical choice for mass-produced uniforms.

While a V-neck is the most common design, there are other styles available in some brands, such as mock wrap tops or round necks, catering to personal preferences and comfort.
