The best scrub pants are functional and flattering but finding this winning combination can be so difficult. To help you out, we have put together a guide to walk you through the six steps of choosing the best women’s medical scrubs: taking your measurements, picking your size, deciding on the best fit, choosing your fabric options, selecting your favourite colours, and thinking about what features you need.


Take Your Measurements 


The first step to choosing women’s scrub pants, is to take your body measurements.   For pants, you should measure three different locations:


-Waist: measure just under the natural waistline, that is, the smallest part of your waist.


-Hips: stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of the hips.


-Inseam: Measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg opening (an inch below the ankle).


Mark down your measurements and then compare them to the size chart. This last step is critical, as sizes can vary from collection to collection, and you might be an 8 in one collection but a 10 in another.


Pick Your Size


Zzuri scrubs brand offer Regular, Petite and Tall sizes to ensure you can find the perfect fit no matter what. Here’s the difference between these three options:


-Petite length: for heights up to 5’4”


-Regular length: for heights 5’5” - 5’8”


-Tall length: for heights 5’9” and above


Choose your true size if you prefer your scrub pants to be more fitted or size up for a relaxed fit.

Once you have taken your measurements and decided on the right size, it is time to choose a fit. There are generally 5 main styles when it comes to Zzuri scrub pants:

Choose Your Fabric Options


Not all Zzuri scrub pants fabrics are created equal. Most women’s uniform pants are made from various blends of popular fibres, such as cotton, polyester, rayon, and spandex.  The fabrics have different properties depending on the percentage of each fibre, as well as the weave and finish. Zzuri uses fabric made from a blend of polyester and elastane.  Spandex is woven into polyester to add elasticity and stretchiness to the fabric.  In addition, Zzuri fabric is integrated with Silver Ions antimicrobial technology, which provides odour protection, inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeast, algae, and other microorganisms that cause odour and fabric damage, and increases the lifespan and durability of the product.


Select Your Favourite Colour


Scrub pants come in dozens of colours. While work is underway to introduce more colours, there are still plenty of hues that ensure you find the exact shade you have been looking for. You can opt for a classic neutral like Black, Navy, or Grey, or go wild with bright colours like Pink Peony and Emerald Green.  Choose scrubs tops and bottoms of the same colour for a monochrome look.Make sure both pieces are in the same collection to ensure an exact colour match.


Think About What Features You Need


Depending on the design, scrub pants may offer different features such as pockets of all sizes, elastic or knitted cuffed ankles, drawstring and/or elastic waists and more. Use these features to narrow down your selection and make your final purchase.


Hopefully, this guide will help you choose the right scrub pants from the outset.  But if you do not, Zzuri offers a convenient, flexible return policy to ensure that you are totally satisfied with your new scrub pants. If you have questions about a specific sizing or fit chart, our customer service representatives will be happy to help find the perfect scrub pants for you.
