Scrubs That Don’t Suck: Is JAANUU Doing the Impossible?

In partnership with JAANUU.

If you didn’t have uniforms in school growing up, chances are you probably went through a “uniform phase” when all you wanted in life was to wear that plaid and khaki outfit for just one day… just me? Admittedly, I also went through that phase as an adult when I worked in an office. All I wanted was to have a uniform and not think in the mornings about what I should wear!

That phase ended quickly when I was enlightened to the fact that traditional scrubs – a uniform for millions of healthcare professionals – aren’t as comfy and easy as I had thought. According to my nursing friends, scrubs can itch, get in the way of your work, and generally just make you feel not-so-cute. Luckily, with the fairly recent (and well-deserved) spotlight on our healthcare professionals, HCP apparel brand JAANUU has reinvented scrubs to work better – and look better, too.

A New Way to PPE

Created by a practicing pediatrician, Dr. Neela Sethi, JAANUU was founded to disrupt the scrubs industry. Prior to JAANUU, most scrubs for healthcare workers were purchased at huge uniform stores or worse… in vending machines. Neither of these methods left much room for customization or innovation in scrubs, both of which were huge drivers in the creation of the brand. More than that, JAANUU is on a mission to “reimagine greatness” by giving healthcare workers the tools they need to succeed in their jobs, which can literally sometimes be life and death situations.

Unlike traditional scrubs, JAANUU’s scrubs for both men and women are ordered online in a range of sizes (no more small, medium, large and nothing else). JAANUU’s sizes range from XXS to 3X, plus the brand carries petite and tall sizes. Beyond being inclusive of different bodies, JAANUU considered the styles of today – not the 80’s era when scrubs were last updated – in its designs. With jogger-like fits and modern day color palettes, these aren’t your average scrubs.

From the Internet to Our Nurse’s Door

Though there was so much bad out of the pandemic, one overwhelming positive that emerged is a true appreciation for healthcare workers. Before the pandemic, nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals were rarely thanked for what they did, and their PPE (or personal protective equipment) seemed to be a backburner item. Now, brands like JAANUU are taking a stand with healthcare workers and providing them with the tools they need – like scrubs that actually feel good.

We are lucky enough to have a close friend, Katy, who is an outpatient nurse in Austin, Texas. One of the best things about Katy is her total honesty about how she’s doing and feeling. She regularly admits that the pandemic was really hard on her, which breaks my heart every time.

It’s this candor, though, that had me thinking she was the right person to give JAANUU a spin for us. Thankfully, she agreed to give it a go and the scrubs were delivered straight to her door. The packaging is simple, sterile, and efficient. In terms of time, the delivery was also pretty fast, too, especially during these holiday times of shipping delays.

Fit Check

Katy is about 5’9”, so when she learned there was a “tall” option, she was pumped. Her first impressions were that she liked the scrubs a lot, especially because they feel like similar material to the material worn in Grey’s Anatomy. Looking like Meredith Grey also sounds like a dream, no?

We think Katy looks amazing in the scrubs, especially with the gathered bottom of the pant leg and the tapered top. She likes the way they fit, too, and suggested for those that carry weight in the hips or arms to size up one size. In terms of other features, which frankly, I didn’t know scrubs could have, she really likes the drawstring on the pants… I guess when you gotta go at work, you gotta go fast as a nurse. Not only that, she said there’s a ton of pocket space which is helpful for the many things she’ll carry throughout the day from room to room... IYKYK. Not only are the pockets in the right places, but there are also badge loops so you don’t have to awkwardly hang your badge in your v-neck and make that “v” even deeper.

With fabric designed to let you move freely, JAANUU scrubs are also wrinkle-resistant, stain-resistant, fade-resistant, and antimicrobial, so no matter what liquids or…other things…spill on you, your fit’s got you covered. From a price perspective, the JAANUU scrubs hit right on target with other scrubs, which isn’t always the case with some DTC brands. It’s absolutely awesome when you can get a better substitute for the existing product at the same or lesser price.

A Little Something for Everyone

Whether you’re helping deliver sweet little babies or capturing PET scans all day, what you do as a healthcare worker matters. JAANUU believes in what you do – and the brand believes in a world where your apparel allows you to succeed. With a color, style, and size for everyone, JAANUU is truly reinventing the way healthcare workers like you wear your PPE. Throw on some new scrubs and continue to make a measurable impact on our world each and every day – and know that we’re thankful for you.

5 More Reasons to Love JAANUU:

  1. The brand was founded by a real-life doctor, Dr. Neela Sethi, meaning JAANUU scrubs are not only doctor-approved and doctor-designed to actually work for the field.
  2. JAANUU knows the struggle of being a nursing or medical student, so the brand offers students 15% off their order.
  3. Squatting might just be a part of your day job – and JAANUU passes the squat test with flying colors, unlike traditional scrubs.
  4. With a goal to “leave the planet a better place than we found it,” JAANUU isn’t about fast fashion. These scrubs are purposefully engineered to last.
  5. JAANUU is building a community of healthcare professionals that are on a journey to “reimagine greatness” in their respective fields and they regularly seek to share these inspirational stories with others.
