Some Things Are Free

A few weeks ago, I received an email asking me to review a medical scrub top. At first I ignored it, but when the company emailed me again, I agreed.

I chose a navy blue, 3 pocket v-neck tunic-style scrub top, from Adar Medical Uniforms.

We construct our medical uniform garments of superior poplin fabric that is substantially hefty, yet incredibly lightweight to wear. A 65% polyester/35% cotton blend ensures that our uniforms do not easily crease or stain but continue to look fresh after hours of wear.

I like this kind of nurses scrub top, due to the large pockets. Nurses carry all sorts of stuff, like syringes, alcohol wipes, scissors and lots more! This particular top also has a breast pocket, which is a great spot to hang your ID from.

The scrub top was neatly folded and packaged in plastic when I got. It was kind of stiff from the sizing, but it didn't have that chemical smell that they sometimes due when they are fresh out of the package.

I ordered a medium, and it is a bit large. It is not a universal scrub top, so I have to say that it runs a bit big. I don't like my tops too tight across the shoulders or underarms, but this is a bit boxy. I would probably try a small too.

I  washed the scrub top, and it held it's shape nicely. It doesn't look like it shrunk at all. The stitching is nice and tight. The only drawback to this top is that is comes out of the dryer a bit wrinkled. Now, I have to admit, I never iron my scrubs. Usually I take them out of hot dryer and they are fine. This time, the dryer had started to cool down a bit. so that may be the culprit.

I'd definitely by a shirt of this quality! They are offering a 15% discount on all merchandise, using this coupon code for this blog is: "trueblue" which is 15% off until July 31st 2013.

The scrub top is mine to keep, and I will happily wear it. I was not given any other compensation for this review. You can check the company out in these places:
