Figs Scrubs Review By Real Nurses - Men's And Women's Scrubs

By Angelina Gibson, Nurse.org Staff Writer

Figs scrubs are making big changes to the technology, comfort, and design of medical scrubs. These ain't yo’ grandma’s scrubs - no more boxy, saggy, germ-infested scrubs. 

With wrinkle resistant, pre-shrunk and odor-control material you’ll look and feel your best. On top of that, Figs scrubs help nurses to deliver optimal patient care by reducing hospital-acquired infection through their 100% antimicrobial fabric. 

Their scrub fabric is literally made of silver - one the leading antimicrobial agents since ancient times. 

Affiliate disclosure: Figs scrubs provided these four nurses with a free pair of scrubs to test at work. Some links within this article may include affiliate links.

Making A Worldwide Impact 

With a background in fashion, founder Heather teamed up with her best friend Trina to create the most technically advanced, comfortable and beautifully designed scrubs.

They also do their part to give back to those in need - on a massive scale. 

Did you know there are healthcare providers worldwide that have never owned a pair of scrubs? That’s why Figs developed their Threads for Threads Initiative - helping to outfit healthcare workers in need and reduce hospital-acquired infection by 66%. 

That’s right when you purchase a pair of Figs brand scrubs, Figs, in turn, donates a pair to a healthcare worker in a resource-poor area. Thus far, they have donated over 90,000 scrubs in 34 countries. The overall impact of their missions is mind-blowing when you see it on a map! 

New scrubs help improve caregiver happiness by 100% 

Meet The Nurses Who Tested Figs - At Work.

Don’t just take our word for it. We asked four different male and female nurses, to wear Figs scrubs to work and provide us with honest reviews. We’re happy to e-troduce you to our Figs product testers: 

Kimi Girmus, BSN, RN has worked in a busy ICU for 1 year.

Jenna LaFace, BSN, RN is a travel nurse with 4.5 years experience and specializes in ICU, ER, Medical/Surgical and Telemetry.

Daniel Henriquez, RN is a charge nurse on the night shift in the ICU unit and has 10 years experience as a nurse.

Neal Sandoval BSN, RN has 5 years experience in Cardiothoracic ICU and rapid response nursing. He works nights and is also a charge nurse. 

Figs Scrubs Review - Women’s Scrubs: 

Nurse Jenna is 5’4 and normally wears a dress size 4-6. She is modeling a small Figs Catarina scrub top and small, petite Figs Livingston scrub pants. 

How do these scrubs differ from the scrubs you typically wear to work? 

“These scrubs are a little thicker which makes me feel more secure it regards to bodily fluid splashes. The best part is that they don't feel heavy though, just all around good material.”

What do you like most about your scrubs? 

"They also have a wayyyy more comfortable waistline and don't require tightening or loosening throughout the day. What I like most secondary to the waistline is the boot cut, they don't drag and that's huge in the medical field."

How do they fit overall? 

"The top seems to be fit for more pear-shaped bodies, it fit my chest well but got wider towards the bottom. Als, the "v" line is a little deep for nursing scrubs. Without the pockets, the top is very slimming which is great if you like to feel and look good at work, too. The pants fit great and I feel like I could even wear them to my yoga classes."

Would you purchase them again? 

"I would definitely purchase the Figs brand again but, I wouldn't purchase this style top again. For a size small the fit is a little big and there are no pockets. Pockets are my lifeline at work so I really don't know how I'd work with no pockets."

How do these scrubs differ from the scrubs you typically wear to work?

What do you like most about your scrubs? 

“I love the thick flexible waistband and that the scrub top has a lot of pockets!”

How do they fit overall? 

“Great! They remind me of my favorite yoga pants but, with protection from bodily fluids.”

What do you like most about your scrubs? 

“The material is thick, lightweight and well constructed. They don’t feel too light, though.” 

How do they fit overall? 

“They are comfortable and breathable. I also like the cut of the pants, they don’t flare out like a disco dancer - like a lot of other scrubs I’ve worn.”
