Maevn was oh-so-kind enough to send me a pair of their Eon Collection scrubs for me to review! If you’re on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen these amazing scrubs and their waistband all over different medical accounts. So are these scrubs as nice as everyone seems to be saying?
When I first opened my package, I was absolutely thrilled! The color is gorgeous and just what I was expecting from the pictures of the top online. I was also very excited to see that for the most part, both the top and bottoms were wrinkle-free and didn’t look as though they had just been sent through the mail (and manhandled). This is so important to me, because I don’t have the time or desire to iron my scrubs, and I’m always looking for scrubs that will allow me just to put them on in the morning and go. Living in a tiny apartment in the city means that my closet space is not conducive to hanging up every article of clothing, so my scrubs are folded and put into a drawer where it’s easier for them to get wrinkles.
Which brings me to talk about the material of these scrubs. Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the way these scrubs feel. I wouldn’t mind them feeling a little softer and less stiff, but they were still comfortable and something I wouldn’t mind wearing for 12 hour shifts. This is something that could improve with the a few times of being washed, so I’ll update my review then. A major plus however, is that these scrubs are breathable! They definitely live up to their name of “COOLMAX”. I took pictures outside, so it was about 90 degrees with horrible humidity, and I felt very comfortable in these. I wasn’t overheating and I didn’t feel overly sweaty and gross. Because of this, I’m confident that I’ll be able to wear them during chaotic shifts and they’ll be able to handle my stress sweating. Plus as someone who walks to work, I’ll be able to get there without having to change from how hot I am!
The movability of these scrubs is seriously wonderful. That classic “Eon” waistband is to die for. It’s the perfect compromise between tight and flexibility. I won’t have to worry about these scrubs falling down, but at the same time, I won’t have to worry that they’re so tight that it will be harder for me to move. Honestly, it’s like the waistband of some of my favorite workout pants. I felt like I was pulling on workout pants when I put them on. The top is cut in a very flattering manner, giving the illusion of curves without being over-the-top for working in health care. I could have done with an extra inch around the breast area – just so that I would be able to move my arms a little more – so I might go up a size next time and see if that helps. For the most part, I’m able to move very easily in both the top and bottoms!
But perhaps my favorite thing about these scrubs – the number of pockets! There is FIVE pockets in the pants and THREE in the top (plus smaller internal pockets inside the pocket). For anyone in the medical field, you know how much of a wonderful thing this is. I’m constantly shoving things that I use throughout the day into my pockets, and by having this many I’ll be able to stay better organized. The pockets are also very streamline and not overly bulky – especially the pants. I strongly dislike cargo pants, and these don’t give me that vibe.
Overall, I’m very happy with these scrubs and they definitely make it into my top 5 favorite brands. I’ll update this review later this year when I start a clinical rotation that requires scrubs.
