As the temperature on our thermostats continues to stretch closer to “summer highs,” it’s officially time to swap out winter and spring medical scrub sets and make heat- and sweat-conscious scrub choices.
A well-executed medical scrub set should not only keep you cool and comfortable throughout sweltering summer days, but should help you look and feel your best, no matter the conditions. We’ve put together our varsity-squad summer scrub lineup for nurses, dental hygienists, estheticians, doctors, and the variety of other medical jobs in healthcare and hospitality, taking the guesswork out of what you should wear to work this summer.
Build Your Perfect Summer 2023 Medical Scrub Set:
Starting with what we consider a summer essential, the Florence 2 Pocket Scrub Top is a lightweight, breathable, and super stretchy scrub staple. It’s designed with thoughtful, practical details like a flattering shirttail hem for when you wear it untucked, a badge tab, well-placed and functional pockets, reflective branding for safety, and a water-repellent finish – keeping you comfortable and cool through your shift.
Complementing the Florence, these Susan Multi-Pocket Joggers are super stretchy, extremely lightweight, and delightfully breathable. As an added bonus, they have loads and loads of pockets – which, as we all know, is a year-round bonus for scrub bottoms. For added summer flair (and maximum cooling effect), try our lighter color options, like mauve, jade green, or indigo.
Although it may seem counterintuitive to add layers to stay cool, our Sara Baselayer is a summer scrub staple for several reasons. Made from fabric treated with biodegradable Chitosante, these underscrubs are soft, moisture-wicking, antibacterial, and rated for UPF50 sun protection.
Following suit of the Sara Baselayer, Classic Compression Socks are high-performance additions to any summer scrub set. Like a break for your feet without having to sit (because, who has time for that anyway?) compression socks help reduce the swelling commonly caused by being on your feet all day, especially in the heat.
We know your perfect summer medical scrub set is made up of whatever pieces keep you comfortable and feeling your best. So, regardless of the styles you settle on, we wish you the best – most manageable – summer yet.
