New Scrubs Line: Healing Hands Scrubs

Published 30 April 10 12:49 PM
The soft fabric makes these unique scrubs a hit.

Scratchy is not an option in my wardrobe. I have a Michael Jordan T-shirt that my grandfather scored at McDonald's in the ‘80s. It's threadbare, slightly holey and the softest, most amazing shirt ever. I have been wearing it since it was a night shirt down to my ankles on me, and now if fits me like a regular old T-shirt.

I can't imagine being in healthcare and running around all day in scrubs that weren't comfy. I mean, that's the entire point of scrubs, right? They're comfortable, allow for mobility and distinguish healthcare professionals from others. One of the new lines of scrubs we're carrying at ADVANCE Healthcare Shop is all about comfort. Healing Hands scrubs were designed with a 60/40 cotton poly blend. They're soft on the skin, stylish and easy to care for - a must for those working in the healthcare field.

I found the story behind Healing Hands scrubs pretty interesting, too. The founder spent a long time in the hospital in 1997 after having a heart attack. While there, he chatted with nurses about their apparel, as he was a woven apparel specialist at the time. After recovering, he set out to design scrubs that would be comfortable and simple to care for, with a good fit. He teamed up with a colleague and the Healing Hands scrubs company was born.

Looking through the collection of Healing Hands scrubs at ADVANCE Healthcare Shop, I picked out a few of my favorites. I really like the gunmetal gray color featured in many of the Healing Hands scrubs, so my choice outfit from the Healing Hands collection is gunmetal gray.

Gray and pink are perfect together in my book, and the Healing Hands "Emilia" scrub top uses them well. That little bit of detailed embroidery that makes up the empire waist makes the scrub top unique, and I like the four buttons at the top that add a bit of extra detail, too.

For the pants to my ideal Healing Hands scrub outfit, I chose the "Sandy" elastic waist pants. Here, too, it comes down to the details. The little cut in at the top allows a bit of extra room, and the slits at the bottom make the scrub pants lay nicely over nursing shoes. These pants feature a whopping four pockets, too.

What do you think of the new Healing Hands scrubs? What part does comfort play in your choice of scrubs?

I absolutely love my top I just bought! It is the most comfortable I ever felt at work. I love that the sleeves are short and they don't stop my arms from working. And it is sooooo soft! This is the line for me!
