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. It doesn’t feel or look good to be swimming in your uniform. Baggy tops and dragging pants can also 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 in tops and bottoms that fits petite nurses well. The Cherokee petite sizes have been positively reviewed on Scrubs, and are available in a huge range of colors and styles. Since petite figures look best in something more tailored, we recommend the Cherokee mock wrap top. Functional and stylish, this contemporary top features two set-in front pockets, a left scissor pocket, one interior pocket, and princess seams for a shapely fit. Pair it with Cherokee’s low-rise flare leg pant for a set of petite scrubs that are sure to fit.

Dickies scrubs for petite nurses

The Dickies line of 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.
