Brand Feature – IguanaMed

2 Apr

IguanaMed makes high-performance, fashion-forward scrubs for today’s medical professionals. They started with creating an innovative fabric blend to deliver a breathable, flexible, and durable scrub that meets the needs of today’s working professionals better than the traditional scrub does. These Med Flex fabrics, specifically Med Flex II, which includes spandex for easy of movement as part of its tri-blend, are what make the products so appealing. The sporty, creative designs are also a big part of the company’s growing popularity.

We have some great scrubs from IguanaMed in our store. You can check out all the IguanaMed scrubs on AllHeart, or take a look at some of my favorites below. They come in a few great neutral color options, so you can mix and match styles and fabrics.

IguanaMed Eco-Chic Henley Scrub Top

Eco-Chic Henley Scrub Top

Soft and easy peasant styles are one of the most important blouse statements of the season. Feminine, yet natural, this summertime top has appeared in all designer and contemporary lines. We love the little puff sleeves, open banded neck and henley button front, and have kept the front pockets going as we know how important these are to you.

IguanMed Truegreen Bootcut pant

IguanaMed Trugreen Bootcut Pant

Utterly new and utterly feminine, we love mixing our eco bamboo woven fabric with our knit skinz fabric. Everything is included in this fashion pant: elastic all around the waist for comfort AND a dropped drawstring tie for size adjustment, slenderizing back leg seam and stitching, and soft rounded patch pockets in the front with just a hint of feminine gathering.

IguanaMed Med Flex V Gather Top

Med Flex V Bottom Gather Top

This is another of our most fashionable tops to truly update your medwear wardrobe. The fashion winds are shifting from slim and tight to big and full. Looser, easier tops have surfaced with lots of gathering, shirring, pleating. The banded bottom here that now has gathering and a drawcord creates a new hemline and shape called “blouson”. Tied at the side for ease and comfort, we’ve also put a bit of fullness at the shoulder yoke and softened the sharp point of the v neck shape to make it feminine. Give it a try, we think you’ll like it!

IguanMed Med Flex V Elastic Waist Bootcut Pant

IguanaMed V Elastic Waist Bootcut Pant

Sometimes you need a totally flat front pant free of pleats, gathers, elastic, drawstrings. In that case, our core clean front pant fits the bill, but has enough detail to keep it interesting looking. The L shape slash pockets that are double needle top stitched define the style while we’ve kept the ever popular side slit at the leg opening. The waist band in front is also flat, but we’ve elasticized the back for needed comfort and ease.

Scrubs Fashionista

5 Dec

I read an article a few days ago about ideas for jazzing up your scrub wardrobe. Wearing monochromatic scrubs can get rather monotonous, and after reading this article, I thought I would put my style talents to work. Since Cherokee makes great scrubs that appeal to almost everyone, I took advantage. I love Cherokee scrubs for the same reasons you probably do. They always seem to have a great fit, wash well, and there is a style for just about everything and everyone!

So without further ado, here is my attempt at working as a Scrubs Fashionista!

How about this V-Neck top in the Eco Floral Pattern with these cute straight legged cargo pants in chocolate brown?

Or check out this “keyhole” top. It looks like a classic tunic with the mild v-neck and side vents. It would look great paired with these “Touch” drawstring cargo pants in turquoise. These pants have the added benefit of being soft as can be!

Here’s another cut I really like from Cherokee—the empire waist top. Pair this top in the “Papavero” or “Modern Dot” print with these low-rise flare leg scrub pants in black and you could almost stop at a happy hour on your way home from work!

What is your favorite Cherokee inspired outfit?

Brand Spotlight: Dickies Medical Scrubs

29 Jul

Dickies Medical Scrubs

While the history of uniforms and scrubs will be a story in its own right, one of the largest manufacturers of medical apparel deserves independent recognition. It’s been a long road trip from the 1922 introduction of Dickies® bib overalls to the American farmer and worker. The Williamson-Dickie Mfg Co makes clothes that look good and wear well, just as it has for almost 90 years.

The Dickies® bib overall is an American icon. The overalls are seen on the farmer in the famous 1930 painting “American Gothic,” and almost any photograph of the hard scrabble American laborer. From its inception Dickies® brand apparel has been and continues to be associated with tough jobs requiring quality, long-wearing clothing. In the 1950s, the Company expanded its clothing line to appeal to a broader base of American workers. The 21st century saw a further expansion and medical apparel was added to the clothes’ line through a licensee arrangement.

Everyone in the medical profession recalls when medical uniforms, scrubs, and apparel were any color desired…. as long as they were white. To meet the evolving demand of the medical profession, Dickies® introduced more fashion-forward colors. The initial blues and whites were joined with orange, tan, olive, and other solid colors. These evolved into medical apparel with contemporary style, comfortable fit, and panache—the Dickies® medical apparel line that we know and love today.

Other changes in the Dickies® brand apparel line include different styles of tops and pants with comfort, fit, and style in mind. Medical apparel is designed to be easily and thoroughly cleaned, resist staining, and long-wearing. Dickies® offers a wide variety of styles and colors that you’ll see at AllHeart.com. Dressing both women and men, the styles offered by AllHeart include new fashions, perfect fits, and a delightful variety of colors, many new for 2009.

It’s been a long road trip from when C. N. Williamson and his cousin “Col.” Dickie started the U. S. Overall company to Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. becoming one of the largest work clothing textile companies in the world. The complete line of medical apparel is part of the AllHeart family. There are hundreds of Dickie® products offered by AllHeart. In addition to the medical apparel, AllHeart carries other Dickies® casual clothes bringing the same durability home from the office for leisure wear. Now that you’ve learned the story behind that famous horseshoe for Dickies® medical apparel, click on over to the Dickies® pages to check out AllHeart.com for the fantastic assortment of Dickie® scrub tops, scrub pants, lab coats, and even closeouts in many, many styles and colors.

Ten interesting historical facts about scrubs

6 Jun

historyofscrubs

  1. Scrubs (and nurses’ uniforms in general) evolved from nuns’ habits. Nuns were the original caretakers of the sick.
  2. Florence Nightengale pioneered the idea that nurses should dress distinctly and differently from other medical aid workers.
  3. Despite lacking gloves or masks, nurses in the 1800s were sold “fever-proof” uniforms that supposedly blocked disease.
  4. In the early 20th century, nurses dressed in straight, sharply-tailored, ankle-length dresses. It was more important to be seen as respectable – and separate from the servants — than to be comfortable.
  5. World War I changed everything. Skirts were shortened so that nurses could move around, or, if necessary, run.
  6. Well into the 20th century, surgeons wore street clothes with butchers’ aprons. The practice dropped sharply after the 1940s, as it was dangerous to both doctor and patient, not to mention distasteful.
  7. Hats were once a major part of nursing uniforms. They fell out of favor because male nurses didn’t like wearing them.
  8. Riding a wave of enhanced hygiene, scrubs became popular in the 1970s because they were easier to clean than uniforms. They were considered more hygienic and less likely to transmit Staph and other hospital-borne pathogens.
  9. In the early days, scrubs were almost always green or light blue, but some hospitals switched to pink (or enormous stenciled logos) to discourage theft. University hospitals frequently match their scrubs to their institution’s colors.
  10. Scrubs have gained popularity outside the hospital and have been adopted by backpackers because of their light weight and comfortable feel.

What do you know about scrubs that we need to know at The Pulse? What is the word at the nurses station in terms of the hottest brands or the best fitting bottoms? Is there some special way that you wash your scrubs that keeps the colors more vibrant and helps them last  longer? What color scrubs look great together? What scrubs do you wear as every day clothing or wear together with your street clothes?
