A while back I was contacted by a rep at UniformedScrubs.com about testing out one of the Dickies scrub tops for their new spring line. I love Dickies so I had no problem with that. :) They sent me a brown, scoop neck top that had some interesting little details to it. Most of the time I tend not to pay too much attention to my scrub tops. I figure as long as they don't make me look huge or like I work in a quilt shop I'm okay. I will admit though that this top was of really good quality (no surprise with Dickies) and it felt nice to wear a soft, comfy material that actually had some tailoring in the design. Everyone at work noticed it and was like "Oh, Andi you're actually looking girly and cute today!" haha
Don't mind the pictures. I wore the shirt twice just to get a good feel for it and I remembered on the way out the door to work the second time that I should probably snap a few photos to post on here. To make it easy I'll do my pro con list (which I do for almost every decision of my life) ...
Super Soft Material
Tailored to not look like a box (unlike most scrub tops)
Quality make that feels like it will last
Huge front pockets that fit a ton of stuff
Cute details that people actually notice
Scoop neck is wide enough that a sports bra will show through (see above photo)
Capped sleeves feel constricting (see photo below) and a little too girly for my taste
All in all any Dickies Scrub Top is a solid investment for any nurse. I have always loved their brand and this was no exception. My only issues are related to the style of the top and that would be more in my control if I was the one doing the shopping... which I might have to do because Uniformed Scrubs gave me a coupon code to hand out to all of my wonderful blog readers!
A couponer like me gets way too excited about such things...
