Find a workwear style that suits your body shape

Whatever your industry, workwear style is important. You want to feel good in what you wear at work whether you’re a nurse, dentist, or veterinary technician. That’s why, as your uniform suppliers, we’re here to help guide you through the oodles of scrubs and workwear that are available.

As well as deciding what features you need from your workwear, you also need to consider your body shape. Tall, petite, or just regular there’s definitely something for everyone here at Kara.

Firstly, it’s important to assess your body shape as this defines what is most likely to suit you. Body shapes are often referred to as the following terms: Workwear Style

  • Hourglass
  • Apple
  • Triangle
  • Inverted triangle
  • Athletic

Once you’ve figured out your shape, you’ll be able to work out which workwear style will suit you best.

Lightweight, loose-fitting scrubs

A popular trend right now is to wear your loose-fitting pants and your scrub top tucked in – we love this sporty style because you can remain comfy but still feel stylish at the same time.

This style would suit most shapes and if you’re wanting to add some focus to your waist – the tucked-in look hones in on this area and provides a flattering addition.
