Spider-Man has his spidey suit, Wonder Woman has her lasso… every superhero has their costume of choice. When they put on their super suit, they feel like they can take on the world.
And that feeling is exactly what I feel when I put on a pair of scrubs. The first time I ever put on a pair of scrubs was when I was nine years old and tried on my mother’s scrubs, and as soon as I put them on I felt like I could do anything.
After hearing so many phenomenal things about FIGS, I knew that I wanted a pair for clinicals. I knew that I would be scurrying around the lab, running diagnoses and various tests, handling specimens and spending the days in motion. I wanted a pair of scrubs that I could trust to handle the rigorous schedule and demands of clinicals and whatever life threw at me.
I also wanted scrubs that looked fashionable and chic. I’m not going to lie, saggy pants and baggy tops aren’t really my style. There aren’t brands out there that combine both but FIGS manages to be innovative and highly functional. The scrubs are not only anti-microbial and wrinkle resistant but also ridiculously soft and so comfortable.
They also make lab coats… but I’ll pick one up when I get to that stage!
I selected the Catarina one pocket top (simple but chic) and Yola skinny scrub pants in Purple (typical Chrissey). I was completely ecstatic when I got them in the mail and as soon as I put them on, that exact feeling I felt years and years ago came back. That feeling that I could take on the world. I felt like I was Wonder Woman, if she were a medical professional.
Some girls feel invincible in a tiny dress and heels, and some feel that way in sweatpants. But nothing makes me feel more unstoppable and confident than a pair of scrubs, especially scrubs that are chic and fashionable. Who says you can’t be professional and chic at the same time?
My Aunt Kim says that each pair of scrubs has its own memories, and I know that I’m going to have great ones in this pair (and the others I’m going to pick up from FIGS!). I can already see myself running through the lab and wearing the cutest pair of scrubs throughout my intern year, running tests and processing analyses. And I know, with a pair as phenomenal as these, each and every time I put them on I’ll be able to take on the world.
FIGS donates a pair of scrubs with every purchase to a healthcare provider in need through their Threads For Threads initiative, which I think is so amazing. As someone that’s worked for multiple non-profits its crazy when we realize how difficult it is for some populations or areas to access some things that are considered basic. I think this just highlights how great this company really is!
DISCLAIMER: FIGS was generous enough to send me a pair of scrubs to try, but as you all know I would never write, endorse, or mention a company/brand/product if I did not believe in the company or product. I am always 100% honest on the blog and FIGS is truly a great company and their scrubs are PHENOMENAL. I only work with brands I support and trust.
