REVIEW: Cherokee Body Scrubs

Posted by isntshelovlei on April 14, 2012

So the folks over at, a retailer of nursing scrubs and nurse uniforms sent me these Cherokee scrubs from Cherokee’s Body collection to review.

My life is hectic enough so I’m usually a if-it-aint-broke-dont-fix-it type of girl. I’ve been wearing scrubs for years now and already have a particular brand that I like and usually wear, but I’m willing to try anything once (sometimes twice). So as biased as I might have been I was actually pleasantly surprised…

As soon as you put them on, you know these are not your run of the mill cheap-quality scrubs. At first glance, they’re cute/fashionable (I’m a girl so that’s important—don’t judge me), and sort of sporty. I like the material, sort of activewear-ish, made of a 64% polyester/33%cotton/3% combo. They’re soft with just the right amount of weight to them, almost like real pants—not like some of the other paper-thin scrubs I’ve unfortunately had the displeasure of wearing. I mean who wants to wear see-thru wallpaper all day? I know you’ve seen the nurses where you can see the big “PINK” written across their arse right through their scrubs—definitely not a good look.

I like the way the Cherokee Body scrubs are cut. They don’t have that unflattering boxy fit—after all, I’m a nurse with curves, not a SpongeBob character. I’m also a peds nurse, which means a lot of bending and squatting and whatnot to get down and work with the kids at their level. These scrubs were up to the task; they really move with you (and likewise allow you to move).

I usually wear size small scrubs, but order medium pants because it gives me a little more room to stuff the pockets full of goodies (I’m a big pocket fanatic—the more the merrier I am). I carry half of the med room and pyxis around in my pockets. The scrubs definitely passed my pocket requirement but the pants did end up being a little too big and I kept feeling like my arse was hanging out (it wasn’t) so I was constantly retying the drawstrings throughout the day, but that was probably my own fault.

Overall I was impressed with Cherokee’s Body scrubs—I might have to make some more room in my scrub closet…

    Just found your blog and like it! And love in your review that you don’t want to wear see-through wallpaper pants…I SO get that!! I’ve worked in the PICU the past 7 years and have seen my fair share of this, unfortunately! Congrats on passing your NCLEX!
