Your Guide To Scrub Tops At Tafford
Modern scrub tops offer a variety of different options for medical professionals. No longer are they identical shapes and styles but fashion has crept into nursing uniforms and revolutionized the way that scrub tops look and fit. Designers now play with necklines to change the look of scrub tops and add more femininity to the boxy, drab scrubs of the past to give wearers flattering options for their body type. Fashionable details – functional or for show – give healthcare professionals unique touches to their work outfit.
While the variety today is great , sometimes it can get confusing for healthcare professionals to know which style is best for them when it comes time to buy scrubs. To help you wade through the many styles and features present in print scrub tops and solid scrub tops at Tafford, we’ve created this Scrub Top decoder.
Choosing the right neckline is important as it frames the shoulders, neck and face and each neckline can create an illusion of change in your figure making it appear wider or slimmer, longer or shorter, or even make your face shape seem more angular or round. The right neckline will accentuate the right parts of your figure and help balance your features.
V-Neck: V-necks are the most standard neckline in scrub tops. It is simple and gives a nice clean look. The best part about the V-Neck Scrub Top is that it looks good on everyone — no matter your shape or size — making it a popular choice for medical professionals.
Sweetheart: Sweetheart necks are all the rage in fashion from bridal to scrub tops. With it’s heart-shaped neckline, it’s such a feminine cut and really shows off the neck. Perfect for nurses who really want to look trendy and fashionable in a feminine way. In fashion it typically is lower-cut to accentuate the bust but in scrub fashion they tend to be a bit higher cuts to provide modesty in the workplace.
Square Neck: Square neck scrub tops are another fashionable option. Brings attention to your face and really elongates your upper body giving you the illusion of being slimmer.
Cross-over Top/Faux-Wrap Top: The crossover top has the basic v-neck shape but adds a bit more detail with a contrasting trim. This gives the illusion of it being a wrap style and is good for bustier woman who don’t want to maintain modesty at work. The faux-wrap is similar to the crossover top but really adds more of a wrap look without having to tie the shirt as it is sewn for ease of wear and practicality. Wrap/ Faux-wrap tops and dresses are extremely popular in fashion and makes this look less like your average scrub top
