Dressing for your body type: 5 fall scrubs looks for pear-shaped nurses


Got a pear-shaped figure? Shopping for fall? We’ve got you covered with five great scrubs!
According to our style tool (Psst! Check it out for more great suggestions!), pear-shaped ladies should check out tops in dark colors, prints, bright colors and those that accessorize the neckline for super-flattering looks. The most flattering pants tend to be dark and straight leg, flare or wide leg.

Here are our top picks!



V-Neck Knit Panel Top: The style tool tells us that pear-shaped ladies should embrace dark and bright scrub tops, whether printed or solid, so this dark-based print top with pops of bright color is the perfect fit! The Cherokee V-neck top features soft knit side panels and four pockets, including one scissor pocket on the left and a cell phone pocket with tab snap closure on the right.



Jr. Fit Mock Wrap Top: Another bright-yet-dark top and in the perfect color for fall! This Cherokee Junior fit mock wrap top has piping around the front neck, front princess seams, self belt at the empire waist with logo snap, angled patch pockets, back elastic and side vents.



Jr. Fit Low-Rise Drawstring Cargo Pant: The style guide says that “Keeping monochromatic with top and bottom will elongate your frame.” Match both the print and solid top with these Cherokee Junior fit low-rise, flare-leg, adjustable-front drawstring pants with back elastic waist. There’s a novelty yoke at the hip, plus front angled pockets as well as 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 these innovative pants.



Mock Wrap Top: This “Romance” mock wrap top from HeartSoul features a keyhole at the neckline, patch pockets with a pencil stitch, double-needle topstitching, a signature woven tape at the back neck, bust darts, back smocking and side vents. The dark color and neckline pop of color provide a flattering fit for pear shapes.



Low-Rise Drawstring Pant: Match the pop of red in the above scrubs top with these Junior fit, low-rise, straight-leg pants 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.
