Adar Medical Uniforms are here!

Lydia’s is excited to introduce Adar Medical Uniforms to our trusted medical scrub brand offerings. We think you’ll love discovering Adar’s three collections, Indulgence, Pop-Stretch, Universal and Lab coats.

Adar Medical has a rich, 45 year history with providing the medical community with a variety of fashionable, practical and high performance medical work wear. We love it because it fits well, washes well and delivers on comfort. Here’s a breakdown of the Adar Medical scrub collections currently available on Lydiasuniforms.com.

Pop Stretch

Function. Form. Fashion.  The Pop-Stretch Collection by Adar is incredibly soft and comfortable and provides an ease of movement that comes from a special technologically advanced micro-sanded stretch baby twill fabric. Constructed of superior quality cotton/poly spandex yarns, it washes beautifully and requires virtually no ironing at all!

We think our Lydia’s woman will love this Junior fit V-neck Scrub Top . The flattering neckline and narrow empire midriff enhance any figure. Multiple patch pockets, side vents and two Parch Pockets pull the whole look together and give you the function you need.

AM3232_Sea_Glass_1_1

The new junior fit, Empire Henley Scrub Top features a Henley style neckline with two functional snaps, empire waist and a bit of gather at the bust creates a shape that is sweet, slim and trim. Details include multiple curved patch pockets with pen slot and snap tab, side vents and back elastic.

To round off the collection pair the comfortable tops with the Adar Pop-Stretch Junior Fit, Low Rise Straight Leg or Adar Pop-Stretch Low Rise Boot Cut scrub pants.

AM3100_Charcoal

 

These pant styles are low rise, feature back elastic waist, outer self-fabric drawstring, multiple cargo pockets and elastic bungee elements.

Indulgence

The Adar Indulgence Collection is a reminder that you don’t wear what you HAVE to wear; you wear what you WANT to wear.

There’s a ton of options here and the stand out product begins with the Adar Fitted Luxury Tee. This

IND4500_Sherbert_3_1
Always cool and comfortable, this Tee has a slim fit, a thumb hole sleeve opening that helps keep your hands warm and is perfect to layer along with your favorite Adar Scrub top or Lab coat.

The best selling scrub pant in the Indulgence Collection is the Jr. Fit Tapered Scrub Pant.  These feel luxurious and feature 6 functional pockets so keeping all your medical tools and accessories handy is a breeze. These fit so well and look good no matter what shape and size you may be.

UNIVERSAL

With 50 styles to choose from, Universal Uniforms by Adar are constructed of fine quality, easy care and durable poly/cotton yarn poplin.  Universal basic Scrubs and Lab coats are constructed to be functional and practical.

Here’s something different. Universal Skirts and pants in a more classic fit are options to have in your scrub wardrobe. Check out this cute Mid-Calf Length Drawstring Skirt, we love it in Lavender. It features a zipper closure, two side pockets and a back slit. This fits perfect and is lightweight making it easier to last on those 12-hour shifts.

How to choose the most comfortable Nursing Shoes

Perfect-Shoe

Honestly, there is almost nothing worse than having a bad day at work and the entire situation being intensified by an aching in your feet, legs and back. We’ve  learned that jobs requiring long periods of standing, walking and possibly running (depending on the day) also require a pair of great shoes. As a healthcare professional, comfortable shoes are a serious part of your uniform and not one that should be overlooked.

Now, I have never been a nurse, but spending a few years in food service,  I can definitely say I that my feet aches so bad it felt like needles poking me with every step. I’ve definitely worn through my fair share of cheap, poorly constructed shoes because I thought they were “cute” or  “It’ll work for now”.  I knew my feet and lower back needed to be saved and I bought my first pair of Dansko Professional Clogs and never looked back.

Arch Support is a big one for me. Whether you have high, normal or low arches, it is extremely important you buy a shoe that offers proper arch support and fit. If you suffer from arch pain or have a foot condition try a shoe like the Anywear Last But Dot Least Zone Clog with a removable insoles.  This clog has pronounced arch support, are non-slip and have a removable cushioned insole.

Durability is a must. If your shoes are going to stand up against the rigorous duties of nursing, they must be durable. Athletic shoes like the  Asics Noosa Athletic Shoe which are perfect for high energy performance or long hours on your feet. Or, choose the Birkenstock Gizeh Sandal when you want support but also a sandal that will last nearly forever!

You have to have good traction. The medical field environment brings with it the potential for wet, slippery floors. So as a nurse it’s very important you wear shoes that have good traction on both wet and dry floors. I love the Anywear Angel Slip Resistant Clog, this clog features a durable slip Resistant outsole built tough enough to withstand the wear and tear.

Go for something lightweight. Wearing lightweight shoes can help reduce muscle strain while making it easier to move quickly. My favorite are the are the Grey’s Anatomy Softwalk Meredith Box Shoe’s because they are lightweight, flexible and slip resistant.

Last but not least find a color or print that fits your style. The majority of the medical fields now require each department to wear a certain color scrub, which is super boring… So why not spice up your outfit a little and show off some of your personal style with a fun pair of shoes. We have a large selection of bright colors we also carry quite a few prints including the fun Dansko Stapled Pro Speckled Patent Clog featuring a multi-color paint spatter print and the Anywear Angel Breast Cancer Awareness Caring Is Love Slip Resistant Clog supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.

These are my must haves when it comes to shoe shopping, what are yours? Do you think there are certain shoe types that should be avoided by nurses? We would love to know!

We Love Yoga Pant Scrubs

Here’s Why Yoga Pant Scrubs Are the Best and Why EVERYONE Should Wear Them

If you are a doctor, nurse, student or a heroic healthcare worker, you probably already know about the pros of wearing scrub pants. The pockets! The comfort! Wash and Wear! But have you tried YOGA Scrub Pants?

I’m not a medical professional but I have an addiction to YOGA Scrub Pants. I even do yoga in them, imagine that! Thankfully working at Lydia’s helps feed the addiction and here’s why I think everyone should own a pair.
YogaPant

Med Couture

  • Yoga Scrub Pants are incredibly comfortable and functional. The Med Couture MC2 Yoga Scrub Pant has a knit waistband and includes double cargo pockets. The fabric is a Cotton/Polyester/Spandex blend so it moves and stretches with you. Plus, you don’t look like you’re wearing yoga pants!
  • You’ll Look Adorable. Wearing Yoga Scrub Pants make you look adorable and smart at the same time. Everyone knows nurses and other medical professionals are super smart and scrubs make them easy to spot. Maybe it’s the clean lines, but these Jockey Yoga Pants hug your waist and a side panel insert on the waistband add to a perfect side silhouette. It’s a great look for everyone!

 

  • Scrub yoga pants are super affordable and last forever. Compared to the major active wear manufacturers, scrub yoga pants are often 30% cheaper! Click here to see Lydia’s collection of Yoga-style scrubs, even clearance items!

 

  • The selection of colors in Yoga Scrub Pants is off the chart. Break out from the bland, boring world of black and discover Vivid Blue, Berry, Seaglass Pewter, Flamingo, French Lilac and an array of beautiful colors to spice up your wardrobe.
