My review on the Medelita Modern Fit scrubs!
I’m super excited to announce that I’ve had the opportunity to partner with Medelita as one of their H.I.P. ambassadors (you can check out my profile here)! I came across this company and fell in love with the fact that this company was started by a PA-C, and holds true to the values of being professional wear for the active health care provider. After wearing these scrubs in my ACLS class, I can honestly say that they hold true to the hype.
My biggest problem with any pair of scrubs comes from not being able to move around as freely as I want in “women cut” scrubs. I spent 15 years competitively swimming, and I’m fairly busty, so it can be a struggle for me to find scrubs that allow me to move around and don’t make it look like I’m wearing a bag. As a provider, I need to be able to do all of the things asked of me, whether its CPR or just providing general medical care.
In these Medelita scrubs, I’m able to move as freely as I need to. I never once felt like I was being restricted with how much I could move my arms, and I was able to preform some great CPR during my ACLS training class.
Plus, I feel confident that I look good wearing these. I’ve always had the mentality of “look good, feel good” and I know that wearing these on clinical rotations next year will give me the edge I need to do my best – whether its preforming a physical exam on a patient or answering my preceptors questions during rounds.
A few of my other favorite things about these scrubs:
- They’re oh so soft! The fabric of these guys actually gets softer with every wash, something I love! I can not stand wearing scrubs all day and feeling like they’re itchy or stiff. I want to be comfortable, because medicine is not always a 8-5 job. They also won’t pill, shrink, or fade with washing.
- FreshGuard fabric helps cut down on bacteria and odor the entire day! Medicine is messy, and I want to be confident that my scrubs can hold up and that I won’t need to replace them every month.
- Moisture wicking for those of us who stress sweat (aka me)! I cannot stand when I sweat and then feel disgusting and moist for the rest of the day.
I have two small concerns/annoyances. You can’t really tell in these pictures, but my top and bottoms are two slightly different colors. It’s not a big deal, but it just annoys the perfectionist in me. I’m also a little worried about getting stains since I got such a little color (and I am the clumsiest person in the world when it comes to pens and bleach wipes), but the company gives a break down on what to use for stains under the details of the scrubs.
I’m wearing the Women’s Modern Fit scrub top (M) and bottom (S) in Pool. You can check them out at this link! You can also get these scrubs embroidered! Let me know if you get a pair, and your thoughts on them.
