Dressing for your body type: 5 fall scrubs for slender nurses


Got a slender figure? Shopping for fall? We’ve got you covered with five great scrubs!
According to our helpful style tool (check it out for more suggestions!), ladies with a slender shape should consider wearing high-quality-fabric tops, stark-contrast print tops and dark tops matched with sleek undershirts for the best-looking fits. The most flattering pants are typically cargo, straight-leg and bright, and match the top.

Here are our top picks!



Jr. fit low-rise drawstring pant: Bright colors are flattering on slender figures, and you can’t find a more fun and vibrant shade of blue than this one! These Dickies Junior fit, low-rise, straight-leg pants hit home, featuring an adjustable drawstring with full elastic waist and belt loops with decorative Dickies logo rivets. Also featured are two front pockets, a large coin pocket, two back pockets, back yoke and side vents.



V-neck print top: The style tool tells us that “if you have an athletic, narrow or simply regular build, prints can be flattering on you.” So rock your best features with this brand-new dramatic and colorful print from Dickies. The Junior fit top features multineedle topstitching, a chest pocket with reinforced pen slot, a cell phone pocket, multisectional utility loops, side vents and two roomy patch pockets with ID bungee loop.



Jr. fit low-rise drawstring cargo pant: Cargo pant scrubs provide plenty of comfort through your shift while matching well with many different colored tops. This Junior fit, low-rise, flare-leg, adjustable-front drawstring pant with back elastic waist by Cherokee has a novelty yoke at the hip, front angled pockets and cargo pockets on both legs. Additionally, the left pocket has an instrument loop with a functional logo snap. A side seam panel at the back leg, side vents and double needle topstitching complete this innovative pant.

Blue HeartSoul Scrubs top

V-neck print top: The style tool says: “For a slender or hourglass shape, go for a soft, comfortable stretch fabric (ideally at least two-way stretch) to flatter your body. Look for anti-cling and wrinkle resistant so you always look sharp. This kind of print (with eye-catching standout patterns) can work well for you.” This Polyester/Spandex V-neck HeartSoul top fits the bill and features asymmetrical sectional front pockets, a small interior pocket with crisscross loop tabs, a signature woven tape at the back neck and side vents.



“Social Butter-Fly” long-sleeve tee: The style guide advises you to never hesitate layering. You can wear a short-sleeve jacket with a long-sleeve tee to dress up some of your separates. This Junior fit, long-sleeve HeartSoul tee features a round neck, sleeve bands and a shirttail hemline. Perfect as a layering piece!
