4 Scrub Pant Styles To Get You Through Your Shift

When you find that perfect pair of scrub pants, you feel like you can tackle anything. And as someone in the medical field, you understand this more than anyone.

If the ankle has too much of a flare leg, you’re bound to trip over them with a handful of meds. If the pockets are in the wrong place, you feel like you have to walk a certain way to keep your supplies from spilling out. If you wear a generic unisex scrub, you may not have all the wiggle room your hips or thighs need, and you’ll feel stiff and stifled all day. 

No matter what your 12-hour shift throws your way, a comfortable and well-appointed pair of pants can make a big difference. This guide will help you navigate your next pair of scrub pants — from materials to style and color — so you can find your perfect pair. 

Choose High-Quality Materials for Scrub Pants

The best scrub pants start with the best materials. Make sure your scrubs are made from a durable and easy to care for fabric. Polyester is great because it’s a tough fabric that’s also wrinkle-resistant. The last thing you want to worry about is wearing a hole in your scrub pants or staying up late ironing out wrinkles. 

High-quality materials make for soft and breathable scrub pants when you’re on the move. Rayon gives scrub pants a more athletic, moisture-wicking feel to keep you cool all day (or night). Scrub pants with spandex give that well-placed stretch so you can bend with confidence.

Keswi scrubs keep all of this in mind with its unique poly-blend scrub pants. Every pair is made from the softest materials around to keep you comfortable every moment of your 12-hour shift, so you can focus on your patients. Keswi scrub pants are also incredibly durable, meaning they'll last multiple washes and many tumble cycles. (Did we mention they’re also wrinkle-free?)

Keswi scrubs have the perfect thickness to keep you warm when you accidentally forget your scrub jacket, but they also wick away moisture to help you keep your cool when you need it most. 

The four-way stretch of Keswi scrub pants gives you the freedom to maneuver those tiny hospital rooms and stay comfy after a belly full of unit potluck treats. Rather than only offering stretch in certain lines like other brands — although Anatomy Spandex Stretch, ​Cherokee Flexible, and Cherokee Infinity Cross-Flex have some great options — all of Keswi scrub pants have the right amount of stretch. 

Scrub Pant Styles: 4 Can’t-Miss Options

Scrub pants have come a long way from the traditional unisex drawstring pant. But with so many options now, choosing scrub pants can feel a bit overwhelming. From Grey’s Anatomy and Carhartt to Cherokee Workwear, how do you decide what works for you?

Thankfully, Keswi premium scrubs offer more tailored and flattering styles for women, and sleek yet functional drawstring cargo scrub pants for men. With four great styles — two for women and two for men — Keswi scrub pants also come in sizes XS-3X for women (including petite) and S-3X for men. 

Ventura Jogger Women’s Scrub Pant

Do you ever wish you could just wear yoga pants to work? The Ventura jogger scrub pants are the perfect compromise for all the athleisure lovers out there. With the flat front design, there’s none of the annoying bagginess that other elastic waist scrub pants can have. There’s also a hidden drawstring for an extra secure fit that doesn’t compromise the look. 

The brushed cuff ankle is soft and allows for easy movement. For storage, you have two angled front pockets and two back pockets on these tapered leg joggers. The front pocket even has a concealed cell phone pocket to keep your phone perfectly in place. 

Livia Multi-Pocket Straight Leg Women’s Scrub Pant

If you love the classic look of straight leg scrub pants but need more than one pocket, the Livia multi-pocket straight leg pant has you covered. With two front and two back pockets, as well as two roomy cargo pockets, you’ll never be without gloves, alcohol swabs, or a pack of graham crackers again. 

The tailored, slim fit of the Livia straight leg pants retain a polished fit that flatters any shape or size. Rather than a boot cut or flare leg — Keswi knows having excess material around your ankles can lead to disaster. 

The tapered leg keeps you safe and stylish, and will match perfectly with your favorite compression socks, Skechers, or Danskos. These pants also have an elastic waistband with an interior drawstring so they always stay exactly where you want them. 

Bristol Jogger Men’s Scrub Pant

The Bristol jogger men’s scrub pant has a tailored slim fit and polished elastic cuff to complement any look. The six pockets (including two large cargo pockets) provide tons of storage without looking bulky. The scissor loops and pen slots keep your most important items close by so they don’t get lost. These jogger scrub pants have an elastic waistband that sits just below the waist, providing comfort and the look of a more refined medical uniform.

Glasgow 9-Pocket Men’s Cargo Scrub Pant

If six pockets aren’t enough (looking at you, Dickies and WonderWork) — then you need the Glasgow nine-pocket cargo pants. With nine roomy pockets, you’ll be hard-pressed to fill them all. (But if you need some help, Scrubs Magazine has a list of pocket essentials.) 

The four cargo pockets have a pen slot and loops for quick access when you need a pair of scissors stat. The back pockets have zipper closures to keep your ID or cash secure. There’s even a cell phone pocket inside one of the front angled pockets to keep your phone in its place at all times. 

This tapered leg drawstring pant has a timeless, streamlined look even with all the extra storage. This drawstring scrub pant also has an elastic band, adding secure comfort and sitting right below the waistline.

Scrub Pant Colors and Sizes

Keswi scrubs come in five dreamy colors. From classic black and royal blue to pewter, navy, and wine, you’re sure to find the best color for your style (or hospital regulations). By using quality materials, your scrubs will stand the test of time and hold their color as brilliantly as day one. 

As mentioned, Keswi scrub pants (and scrub tops) come in XS-3X for women — you can also choose between regular and petite lengths. For men’s sizing, Kewsi scrub pants and scrub tops come in S-3X.

No Matter Which (Scrub Pant) Leg You Put On First, Keswi Has You Covered

Putting together the perfect scrub set doesn’t have to be a chore. No matter how long the list is of “New Arrivals” and “Best Sellers” from Wonderwink, Heartsoul, Landau, or Barco One, knowing what to look for will help you find your match. 

Focus on quality materials that are breathable, moisture-wicking, comfy to the touch, and stretchy in all the right places. Keswi’s specially designed poly-blend ensures you have all of these features, plus a durable and comfortable uniform that withstands the test of time. And as far as softness, the luxe, micro-peached finish is the softest you’ll find. 

Finding scrub pants that are functional and fit your style will help you get through your shift. Keswi scrub pants pair seamlessly with Kewsi scrub tops, and you can finish your look off with a lab coat or cool lab jacket. From ladies’ joggers scrub pants to men’s drawstring cargo pants, you can’t go wrong with a comfy pair of Keswis.
