Scrubs Fit Guide for All Body Types

Fit GuideEveryone has their own style and shape, that’s what makes fashion so fun! But knowing which fits are best for your body can be a bit confusing, especially as a first time scrubs shopper. That’s where we can help! Here at Medical Scrubs Mall, we are dedicated to providing a great selection of medical scrubs that will suit your needs and help you look and feel great at work. We carry a huge variety of fits from Junior, to Missy, to Contemporary, and it’s important to know the differences so you can have an easier shopping experience while choosing what works best for you.

To help you find the best fit for your body, take a look at the list below of our most popular fits from your favorite brands found here at Medical Scrubs Mall.

Classic/Modern Classic or Traditional Fit

Formerly known as “Missy Fit,” Classic, Modern Classic, and Traditional Fit scrub tops and pants typically accommodate a fuller figure and offer comfort while reaching and bending. The design of these fits are more generously cut with maximum comfort for both younger and more mature women. This style is typically relaxed through the hip, seat, and thigh to allow for a comfortable, easy fit. You can expect great features like longer sleeve length, looser fit, mid-rise waists, and relaxed fit through the hip, seat, and thigh.

Modern/Contemporary Fit

If you’re looking for a more fitted scrub, Modern or Contemporary fits may be the way to go. These styles have a more fitted tailoring along with more modern, fashion shapes. Most modern/contemporary fits also often have more “bells and whistles” when it comes to detailing and design features. These scrub pants are more likely to have a lower rise and slimmer fit through the hips and butt than Modern/Classic/Traditional fits.

Plus Size

We do our best to carry the largest range of sizes and best scrubs for plus size shoppers. Our selection of plus size scrubs come from favorite brands like Cherokee, Dickies and many more. These plus size scrub styles are made to provide comfort with sizing from 2XL to 5XL in most styles. Design features include longer cut sleeves and a relaxed fit through the hips and thighs.


Maternity medical scrubs give you the right fit with added room for the expectant mom.


Unisex styles are roomier and longer in the arm areas and fit loose and straight through the waist to accommodate both men and women body types. Styles are often basic without too many extra design features. Unisex scrub pants normally have a more relaxed fit around the hips, butt, and thigh.
