What to wear under scrubs?

What to wear under scrubs depends on a few things. In some situations, perhaps for hygiene reasons, you may be asked not to wear your own clothes underneath scrubs.

The first thing to consider is what is the general temperature of your workplace. You want to make sure you don’t become too warm at work and make working feel hot and uncomfortable. You should also consider the fit of your scrubs, if you already have a tighter fitting scrub suit, you may not want to add another layer as this could restrict your movement. After you have thought about temperature and fit, you finally need to think about how practical and easy it is to wear your under layer.

Looking professional and staying comfortable is key, therefore your under scrubs layer should not be baggy and loose, as this can look unprofessional and hinder your movement. It is best to stick with something more form fitting yet spacious enough to be comfortable. This should also help you keep warm if your workplace is cold! Wearing sleeves under your scrubs can be a great way to warm up, but it is important that they are able to be pulled up when needed for hygiene reasons.
