Best Tall Scrubs for Women

by | Aug 7, 2018 | Nurse Products & Reviews, Nurse Life | 8 comments

I’m a tall woman. At almost 6 feet tall, I often find it challenging to find scrub tops that fit correctly.  And I know I am not alone in this. So I decided to put together a list of the best tall scrubs for women.  I’ve already shared my Nurse Gear post but I wanted to focus on just tall scrubs for women in this post.

Best Scrubs for Tall Women

Best Scrubs for Tall Women

  • Figs
  • Jockey
  • Cherokee Infinity
  • Grays

Figs

Hands down, my favorite scrub tops are Figs. Their One-Pocket Scrub top is stylish, fitted, and I don’t have to wear a shirt under it. It moves with me while still covering everything that needs to be covered.  I also feel like I look pretty fly in them, NBD. However, they’re not cheap. I do believe are worth the investment. I highly recommend getting on their email list because they frequently email discount codes. They also have a student program, where you get 20% off. These are lean and longer than others.

In the photo, I am wearing the Casma three-pocket scrub top.

Jockey Scrubs

Comfy scrubs that actually fit well? Yes, please. I tried out Jockey Scrubs, and I am impressed! I’m kind of big on having scrubs that fit me well because I think that looks professional. Too tight and it’s inappropriate, too loose and it’s sloppy. These Jockey Scrubs hit that balance perfectly. I didn’t need an undershirt because the top was long, yet form-fitting enough for me. Score. This might be the longest and slimmest scrub top listed, although Figs is close. 

In the below photo, I am wearing the Jockey 3-in-1 Modern Convertible scrub pants with the Jockey Classic Mock Wrap scrub top.

Cherokee Infinity

Cherokee Infinity is my third choice for scrubs for tall women.  They fit well and move with me.  I do like to add an undershirt but that is not because I need it.  I find they get hot when you run around. I had a few shifts where we had codes, and I was sweating and running around. I noticed at the end of the day that my skin was irritated. I look great in them, but I have not been a huge dry-fit fan for 12 hours. The undershirt helps to avoid any skin irritation.

In the photo below, I am wearing the Cherokee Infinity Round Neck Scrub Top and the Cherokee Infinity Low-Rise Slim Fit Scrub Pant. I also enjoy the Drawstring Cargo Pant as well.

Greys Anatomy

I’ve worn Grey’s quite a bit in the past and they’re in my regular rotation. They’re by far the softest and snuggliest. However, if you sweat in them, they get a bit heavy.  I’ve had to get a size larger than usual in the tops just so they fit my long torso, and because of that, they’re not as form-fitting. They’re available at a ton of places, even the tall pants. The Grey’s do have a slightly higher price point. I have a long torso. Therefore the tops are a little short on me and I need to wear a tank top underneath. They can be kind of heavy.

My preferred top is the Grey’s Anatomy Cross Over Tunic Scrub Top. Which they no longer make.

Now you have seen my best tall scrubs for women.  Are you a tall woman who wears a different brand? I’d love to hear what works best for you.

    None of this matters unless you swat every crumpled up ball of paper or pair of gloves coworkers try to toss into the trash while talking smack like, “Get this out of my house” or “Not today, Satan!”

    THANK YOU! I’m also about 6’ tall and have an awful time finding scrub tops for my long torso. I gave up and started wearing long sleeve tall Gap shirts so I didn’t look and feel “dumpy” at work and would pair that with Koi Lindsey bottoms for the pockets. Luckily my facility is lenient and allows us to wear any kind of scrubs we want but I still wanted a form fitting scrub top like the other female RNs. You’re article has helped sooo much and thank you again (:

      Great idea!!! I’ve done that and then used a jacket (which are typically longer) over it as well. Tall girls unite! 🙂

    What tops have you noticed are the longest? I’m 5’10” and also have a very long torso! I hate my back and belly hanging out, so I’m always looking for better scrub tops!!

      The longest ones for me were the Jockey ones. Figs and Cherokee Infinity were very similar, but Jockeys were longer. Greys were the shortest by far. The Jockey tops are the only ones I’ve worn without an undershirt before! They’re also a bit more slim fitting too, so they look nice.

    Thank you! I’m only about 5’5″ so I don’t need the tall length pants, which is all I can seem to find. I have a pretty average build other than the 36K up top, which takes up a LOT of extra length. I need a 3X to avoid showing midriff, but the extra fabric catches on my carts, tangles my stethoscope, and looks like I’m wearing a potato sack with pockets.
