By far, my ultimate favorite brand of scrubs are Jaanuu Scrubs. You have never seen scrubs that look like these. They are extremely comfortable – made with adjustable yoga-pants waist and their own patented fabric that has a 4-way stretch.
And their designs are functional while also standing out as super stylish. The pants have clips for keys, lots of pockets. And the tops are fitted for a flattering look with button and zipper accents that set them off.
The price is perfect too. Tops and pants are each priced under $50.

I’ve found that the best plus size stretch scrubs feel like I’m wearing my favorite comfy pants or pajamas. You really can find scrubs that are that comfortable.

- Know Your Body – Do you prefer a drawstring waist? How do pants feel when you wear them? Know your body and look for scrubs that won’t pinch or rub you the wrong way. Some nurses even prefer to wear a scrub dress.
- Choose Solid Colors – This is completely opinion, but solid colors might last you longer style-wise. It’s so much easier to get tired of wearing a certain print too much.

- How Easy Are They to Put On – Buy scrubs with zippers or some other method of getting it on and off that make it easy. The last thing you want is a frustrating dressing experience.
- Return Policy – Make sure the place you are purchasing from has an excellent return policy. This is especially important if you are buying online. All scrubs fit differently, don’t be forced to keep something that doesn’t fit.
