How can I make my scrub pants fit better?
Stand in front of a mirror with your scrub pants on. If the waist of the pants is too large, do not stretch the elastic simply pinch both the left and right sides on the inside of the waistline so that you’ve pinched equal amounts of excess material on either side to make the pants fit snugly around your waist.
How do you roll up scrub pants that are too long?
To do this, put on your pants, fold the fabric inwards, then look in the mirror and adjust from there until you’re happy with the length. The hem of your pants will drag on the floor and become nothing but a dust mop. Take the pants off, turn them inside out, and check your work.
What can I wear instead of scrubs?
Many healthcare professionals wear solid long-sleeve shirts underneath their tops. You might also consider a simple t-shirt, which will provide medium warmth without making you overheat. If you’re a doctor or work in another position that calls for a lab coat, this is another excellent layering option.
How can I cut my pants without cutting them?
If you don’t have a sewing machine or needle and thread, you can hem your pants with hem tape, which you can find at most drugstores. To use hem tape, turn your pants inside out, fold them to the desired length, pin and iron the crease, and then apply the hem tape to the fold. Iron over the folded edge.
