Finding the Best Scrub Style for your Body Type

Best Scrub Style for your Body Type

Everyone knows that even if you’re wearing scrubs, picking the correct style for your body type will allow you to look your best.

The first thing you need to do is figure out what body type you have. There are four body shapes that can help you in determining what styles may be better suited for you. I’ve included style numbers from our Fashion Seal Healthcare® scrub catalog to show you specific examples.

The Pear body traits:
•    Your lower body is wider than your upper body
•    Your waist is well defined and your hips are wider than your shoulders
•    Your best assets: shoulders ,torso and flat stomach
•    Emphasize your waist and arms , minimize your hips
Our ladies flair draw string pants (ex. style 7080) would be a good choice for balancing your shape. Choose our double v necked tunic in a lighter color (style 7575) and the fashion slacks in a contrasting dark color (style 7403)

The Wedge body traits:
•    Broad chest and wide shoulders
•    Narrow waist and hips
•    Best asset: your legs
•    Accentuate your lower body
Wear our brighter colored pants on the bottom like sangria (style 7021) and the side flex tunic (style 7568) on the top to show off your waistline.

The Apple body traits:
•    Most of your weight accumulates above the hips
•    Your back, shoulders and ribs are broad
•    Best asset: your legs
The V- neck tunic and matching pants in the same color would be a great choice (style 7579 and style 7529)

The Hour Glass shape:
•    Lucky, lucky…show off your curves
•    Your shoulders and hips are similar in proportion and you have a tiny waist
•    Best asset: curves and more curves
The side flex tunic (style 7511) and crossover tunic (style 7006) with the back draw string pulled in to accentuate your small waist are great options.

Body shape is all about proportion and dressing to make the most of your proportions will allow you to feel your best and always look professional.

Watch for our new scrub catalog coming out soon. There is a style made for every body shape!
