New year, new scrubs!

Now back to our new fit guide. Here are some snippets to get you started and for even more information, just visit our website!

Missy Fit

The Missy fit scrub tops and pants typically accommodate a fuller figure and offer comfort while reaching and bending. The design of this fit is usually classic and great for both younger and mature women. This style is typically relaxed through the hip, seat, and thigh to allow for a comfortable, easy fit.

Junior Fit

If you’re looking for a more fitted scrub, Junior fit may be the way to go. These styles have a more fitted tailoring than Missy fits along with more modern, fashion shapes. Junior fits also often have more “bells and whistles” when it comes to detailing and design features. Junior fit scrub pants are more likely to have a lower rise and slimmer fit through the hips and butt than Missy fits.

Contemporary Fit

Contemporary fit is often right in between Junior and Missy styles. These scrubs will be less fitted than Junior but more than Missy and include both classic and fashionable styles.


Unisex styles are roomier and longer in the arm areas and fit loose and straight through the waist to accommodate both men and women body types. Styles are often basic without too many extra design features. Unisex scrub pants normally have a more relaxed fit around the hips, butt, and thigh.

Shop all these styles and more on our website and good luck to all our giveaway participants!
