The Best Scrubs for Petite Nurses
Finding affordable petite scrubs for your workday
Are you a petite nurse? Sometimes it feels like you’re living in a tall person’s world, from adjusting every IV pole at the start of your shift, to doing chest compressions on your tiptoes. It can also be challenging to find properly fitting petite scrubs. We know it doesn’t feel or look good to be swimming in your uniform. Even worse, it can be dangerous to work in an oversized medical uniform. Baggy tops and dragging pants can easily trip you up or catch on your equipment. Luckily, The Uniform Outlet has some great products for small and mighty petite nurses. Read on for our recommendations.
Cherokee scrubs for petite nurses
Cherokee has an incredible range of sizes in many of their lines, including an XXS size that fits petite nurses well. Cherokee petite sizes have been positively reviewed on Scrubs, and are available in a huge range of colors and styles. For our pick, we recommend the Cherokee mock wrap top. Since petite figures look best in something more tailored, this shapely top makes you look great. It features two set-in front pockets, a left scissor pocket, one interior pocket, and princess seams for a figure-hugging fit. Pair it with Cherokee’s low-rise flare leg pant for a set of petite scrubs that are sure to flatter.
Dickies scrubs for petite nurses
The Dickies line of women’s scrubs also has some wonderful options for petite nurses. Like Cherokee, Dickies does not have an option specifically labeled as petite scrubs, but does offer an XXS size that runs shorter and smaller than the larger sizes. Check out Dickies mid-rise drawstring cargo pant, which also has an adjustable waist for a more customizable fit. The piping on this matching Dickies V-Neck top makes for an eye-catching detail, but with four pockets and a utility D-ring it’s still a wardrobe workhorse. Together these two items make a great petite scrub set.
Adjustable length scrub pants for petites
We know that ordering an XXS won’t work for every petite nurse. Because we celebrate powerful and beautiful nurses of all body sizes, we are pleased to offer a few pants which have an adjustable hem. Dragging hems can trip you during difficult lifts and collect germs from the floor. These pants feature an adjustable bungee inside the leg opening that can be used to subtly alter the length of the pant. They are the perfect choice for petite nurses who are tired of spending money on tailoring. Check out the Code Happy Low Rise Straight Leg Drawstring Pant or Cherokee Workwear’s Mid Rise Pull-On Cargo Pant.
