Choosing a uniform for your care workers is an extremely important decision.
Did you know the right uniform can positively impact both your team AND the aging Australian’s that you care for?
Whether for Residential, Respite, Home or Community care - your uniform can make a surprising difference to the quality of care you provide.
In this blog we’re going to explain exactly how your uniform can:
- Promote team spirit and morale.
- And promote better life quality for the clients you care for.
If you’d like to reach out to our friendly team to discuss your specific requirements you can visit our group orders page here. We’d be happy to offer you a free uniform review!
1 - A uniform that creates a more productive and engaged team
The impact that your work uniform has on your care workers is hard to overstate.
It really is one of the most important decisions any aged care facility can make.
Your team’s uniform affects so many aspects, including:
- Team spirit
- And staff co-operation
Not to mention all of the impacts that your uniform makes on your clients (which we’ll also discuss below).
So where do you start?
Well, there are many key decisions when it comes to your staff uniform.
From colours to styles, fits, and materials.
Obviously you want a uniform that your workers are comfortable in and proud to wear.
You also want a uniform that’s stylish and attractive (to promote team spirit and morale).
Selecting the right uniform will show your care worker team that you value them. It will also remind them of this, every time they slip into their uniform before a shift.
2 - A uniform that helps provide better care for your clients
Beyond the profound impacts that your uniform has on your team, there’s another massive consideration.
How will your choice of uniform impact the clients you care for?
Your choice of uniform can provide many benefits to your clients, including:
- Improved visibility
- Provoking positive emotional responses
- And building better relationships
So let’s look at each of these considerations a little closer.
Colour allows your clients to identify your care workers.
This is crucially important. Especially when we consider that many of the aging Australians you care for may have impaired vision.
When clients struggle to tell different objects apart it can add stressful complexity and confusion to their day.
Anything we can do to help your workers stand out can (and will) make a direct positive impact on your clients’ quality of life.
Colour impacts people emotionally and physically.
Colour affects different people in different ways. But there are also some general guidelines we suggest you understand.
For example, blue can relax clients. But if most of your clients have dementia, red can entice brain activity and attention.
Facilities such as residential care, consumer-directed care, and respite care have more scrub uniform colour standards than the average business.
There are also colour considerations around the culture and social upbringing of your clients.
If you’re ready to start planning a new uniform that can positively impact your team and your clients, we’d love to chat!

Are your uniform scrubs making an excellent first impression?
Your clothing says a lot about you at first glance, especially in the medical profession. You must be presentable from head-to-toe to come across as neat and professional.
Modern scrubs come in several fits, patterns, and colours. Ultimately, the best scrubs for you will depend on your personal preferences. Do you want a tailored look, or do you prefer a scrub that’s breezy and loose-fitting? Maybe bright colours or prints are your thing?
Finding stylish scrubs that are functional can be a challenge. Regardless of the style you choose, nurse scrubs must be comfortable. They shouldn’t limit your movements.
Show up ready to work and excited about your scrubs with this guide to the best scrubs for nursing.
How Should Scrubs Fit?
When choosing scrubs, you must pay special attention to their fit. Compare uniforms based on their comfort and quality, and don’t forget that you’re going for a polished look.
Comfortable but High-Quality
When it comes to uniform scrubs, you don’t have to compromise style for comfort. Modern synthetic fabrics give you the best of both worlds being comfortable and durable and often feature stretch for extra comfort.
Pay attention to the fit of the overall uniform, making sure the waist isn’t too tight. Also, be sure the waistband will keep your scrubs in place as you bend down.
When choosing scrubs, look for pants that are made of high-quality materials. Some discounted brands will use thin materials that you can see through, indicating a poorly made product.
Trendy yet Professional
In a hospital setting, you should strive to project a professional appearance. Don’t ruin it by allowing your intimates to show through your uniform.
The cheap, thin scrubs that we just mentioned are not enough to keep your underwear from showing through. This is especially true with lighter coloured pants. You shouldn’t have to buy special underwear each time you wear your favourite white scrubs to work.
You also never want to wear a revealing scrub top. Some scrub tops come in V-neck styles, which are cute but can show too much if you’re not careful. If you’re worried about how professional your uniform is, stick to a timeless scrub design.
Choose Scrubs That Complement Your Body Type
Not only must your scrubs follow any uniform policies for your job, but you must also be sure they fit correctly. To get the right fit when shopping for scrubs, choose according to your body type.
Pear or Apple Shape
If you have a broader chest, waist, and hips, you have an apple shape. People with a pear-shaped body have a smaller chest combined with a wider waist and hips.
While you might struggle to find scrubs that flatter your body, there are a few options that should work well.
Women with a pear or apple shape should stick with solid colours or bright colours with dark side panels. If you’re adventurous, try a printed top with embellishments along the neckline. It’s essential that your top fits well and is not too tight or too loose. Choose straight, flare, or wide-leg pants for the best, most flattering result.
If you are a man built with a pear or apple shape, you should consider darker scrub tops. If your job allows it, try a polo shirt instead of a scrub top. Choose relaxed-fit pants in solid colours and make sure it’s something you’re comfortable wearing for those 12-hour shifts.
V-shape is how we describe bodies with wide shoulders and a skinny waist. If you’re V-shaped, you probably have a broad chest, but smaller hips.
V-shaped women look best in solid-colour tops, empire-waist tops, and mock-wrap tops. The latter two inches above the waist, but fit well in the chest. These fits, in addition to V-neck tops, elongates the torso. When selecting bottoms to go with these tops, try flare, cargo, or wide-leg fits if a straight leg isn’t your thing.
Again, a polo shirt works well for men with this body shape. If that’s not allowed where you work, try layered, V-neck, and unisex tops. Layered tops are also a possible option. V-shaped men look best in cargo, fitted, and drawstring pants.
Hourglass-shaped people have thin waists with large hips and chests. Hourglass is a familiar shape for women.
Women with hourglass shapes should search for flattering tops that stretch. Mock wrap tops and empire waist tops are excellent options. Pair these with straight, wide leg, or flare pants.
Take Your Measurements
Before you go shopping, make sure you take your measurements.
To measure yourself, take a flexible tape measure and measure yourself around your chest, waist, hips, and inseam. For the most accurate results, have someone else take your measurements for you.
Record measurements in the following way:
Chest (or bust): Measure underneath your arms, around the fullest part of the chest
Waist: Find your natural waistline while holding the tape measure loosely
Hips: Stand with your feet together to measure around the fullest part of your hips
Inseam: Measure along the inside of your leg to an inch below your ankle
Have your measurements handy as your shop, especially online, to be sure you get the perfect fit. For a fitted look, choose your correct size. If you like your scrubs to be loose, select a size up.
Other Factors to Consider When Choosing Nurse Scrubs
Once you know your size, you can have fun deciding which scrubs are right for you. There are dozens of styles, patterns, and colours to choose from.
Here are some factors to consider as you search:
For the most part, you get what you pay for with quality scrubs.
You might get lucky and find cheap ones that work well for you, but keep in mind how well scrubs will last over time. If you pay more now, you may find yourself falling in love with scrubs that will last you a long time.
As seasons change, you may find many collections of high-quality scrubs on sale.
Scrub styles change with the seasons, as with any other items of clothing.
You can’t go wrong with basic scrub styles, though. If you’re planning to work as a nurse for a long time, you’ll thank yourself for investing in scrubs with a standard fit.
Standard doesn’t have to mean boring, though. Trust your decision, knowing that comfort will always be “on-trend.”
Scrubs tops are designed with several neck types, including V-neck, mock wrap, round, and square. Modern designers have even added U-shape, scoop neck, and split-neck styles.
These neck shapes give you the ability to step out of the box with your uniform. Try on multiple styles to see which flatters your neckline and chest the most. Once you know which style you prefer, it’ll be easier to make a decision next time it’s time to refresh your work wardrobe.
If you keep things in your pockets, you’ll be happy to discover that you can buy scrubs with pockets, too! We all know how much nurses love their pockets.
Traditional scrubs have chest pockets, but if you find that it draws too much attention to your chest, you can skip them. However, if you’re someone that likes to keep a pen in your chest pocket, you’re in luck.
Some scrub pants also have patch pockets, which are more popular for men than women.
White and blue are the classic colours used to signify doctors and nurses. Many hospitals now allow their employees to pick scrubs in the colour of their choosing.
Colours are a fun way to show your personality. If there aren’t any rules, go wild, but know that dark colours hide stains much better than lighter shades.
Long or Short
If you’re taller or shorter than the average person, you can find well-fitting scrubs, too. Most brands provide tops and bottoms in long and short styles.
Pay attention to the brands that offer these styles, so you don’t have to waste time and money visiting a tailor with your work uniform.
We’ve discussed fit a bit already, but we cannot stress enough how important it is when choosing your uniform.
Most scrubs are designed in a loose-fit, but modern scrubs also come in slim varieties.
Whichever you choose, make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your scrubs. You’ll be at your best when you’re wearing scrubs that fit well.
Some scrubs are designed with side slits. These are stylish, but functional, too. They will allow you to bend more freely and provide air to keep your scrubs from becoming too hot.
If you’re tall, be careful. Side slits can show torso skin when you reach if your tops aren’t long enough.
Drawstrings or Buttons
Most scrub pants come with a drawstring or buttons to keep them up on your hips. Bottoms with elastic waistbands are usually the most comfortable.
With drawstring pants, make sure they don’t slide down your hips as you walk or bend over. The last thing you want is to show your underwear to your patients or coworkers!

Best scrubs brands Australia: Dickies, WonderWink, Zoe and Chloe and Infectious.
Wearing scrubs for Vets and Vet Nurses makes perfect sense. Ease of wear, comfort and low maintenance matter to professionals with busy workdays. Many of our Veterinary clients choose the Dickies GenFlex range of scrubs as the smooth finish of the fabric means that animal fur doesn't stick to it like regular poly/cotton scrubs. GenFlex scrubs feature the added comfort of stretch fabric which is perfect for the physical work of vets and vet nurses. You will also find that WonderFlex scrubs from our new brand WonderWink features the same quality fabric and all animal handlers would love them.
The recently launched Performance System scrubs are also a great fit for Vets as the new Aerocool technology wicks the moisture away resulting in enhanced comfort and better breathability than poly/cotton scrubs. Dickies Performance System scrubs are perfect for Vets who work outside in hot conditions with large animals.
Many of our Vet customers favour bright colours for their uniforms. There are many new fashion colours available now, especially from WonderWink Scrubs USA. We find that Vets don't have to stick to the boring navy or green scrubs that hospital workers do so it's time to brighten up your workwear wardrobe and be creative with colour.
A good way to keep clean during your long workday is to wear a lab coat over the top of your scrubs. Lab coats offer the added protection that you might need while working with animals while still portraying a professional look. There are lab coats with different lengths to suit your needs from a full length up to the quite short consultation jackets. www.infectious.com.au also offers a full embroidery service so you can customise your lab coat with your name or practice logo. You will look really sharp in a new lab coat with your name embroidered in a nice script font.
At Infectious Clothing Company, we understand the importance of representing yourself and your clinic, hospital or shelter in the most professional manner possible. Our embroidery department is ready to produce the logo or lettering that sets you apart as you perform the services our pets and livestock require season after season, year in and year out.
Maintenance and Low Cost - Two of the driving forces behind the popularity and success of medical scrubs. Everybody loves a uniform that requires minimal maintenance. Wash them and hang them up straight away and they are practically ready to wear. Give them a quick iron if you like sharpness to your scrubs. New advanced synthetic fabrics mean that most scrubs these days require little or no maintenance. These new fabrics also are dirt and stain resistant which has obvious benefits to healthcare professionals. Scrubs are now very affordable when compared with traditional and corporate style uniforms. Scrubs generally cost about half the price of the old uniforms which makes them very attractive to corporate and hospital buyers as well as the clinicians who wear them.
Come and see why Dickies and WonderWink scrubs are so popular with our Vet customers. You won't be disappointed by the quality, style and affordability and as always when you buy your scrubs online you get the biggest savings.

What is Embroidery Digitising?
Every time you see scrubs or lab coats with an embroidered hospital logo or their name, that design was "digitised". Embroidery digitising is the process of converting existing artwork like a hospital or practice logo into a stitch file that an embroidery machine can sew on a garment.
Digitising is the process of turning your logo from flat artwork into embroidery detail including
- colour matching
- the path of the needle
- total number of stitches
- shading requirements.
We love seeing our customer's logos go from artwork to embroidery on their uniforms. Let Infectious customise your new scrubs today.

Tips for colour selection
- Colour awakens emotional responses related to past experiences and cultural background.
- Colour can be used to increase and reduce visibility.
- Colour contrast and good lighting help people’s navigation, orientation, mobility, independence and involvement.
- Too many colours together can be distracting.
- Older people are best able to discriminate strong colours at the warm end of the spectrum.
- Colours with a high degree of brightness, such as yellow, are highly visible.
- Colours such as peach, coral and soft apricot tones flatter skin tones and add warmth to any setting.
- Pastel blues and lavenders are hard for older people to see and often look grey.
- People with colour vision issues are less sensitive to colours on either end of the colour spectrum. Reds and blues will look darker.
- As colour preferences are personal, giving people the chance to personalise private spaces is important.
Effective colour contrasts
Older people need about three times as much contrast as younger people to find objects. Choose colours of major contrast.
Combine light colours from the middle of the spectrum, for example, yellow or green, with dark colours from either end of the spectrum, for example, red or blue, to produce the most effective contrasts. Do not combine dark green against bright red, yellow against white, blue against green, or lavender against pink.
Camouflaging with colour
Colour can be used to make objects more visible, or it can hide or camouflage them. Choosing background colours similar to the colour of objects in the foreground can make objects invisible to a person with dementia.
Colour and lighting
Lighting helps in effective colour contrast. The amount of natural daylight should affect the choice of colours as the colour is visibly changed by different light sources. Carpet, wall colour, fabrics, furniture and accessories look much brighter in direct daylight than under artificial light. Test your colour choices in day and evening light where they are to be used.
Colour rendering means how true colours look under a given light source. How colour looks under daylight is seen as true and accurate. Light sources are compared to daylight through a Colour Rendering Index. The Colour Rendering Index for lamps uses 100 as the number for light most closely resembling typical daylight. A bulb with a number of 80 or higher can provide a reasonably accurate colour rendering. The temperature of the light source is also a measure of colour rendering, with degrees Kelvin being the standard measure. The higher the temperature, the cooler the light and the closer to daylight. The recommended light rating that simulates daylight conditions or incandescent lighting is 3000–3500 degrees Kelvin.
Colour and wayfinding
Use of colour in wayfinding is most important. Using colour and creating colour contrasts helps people to move about more confidently, reducing confusion and agitation.
Understanding what you do well in your facility and identifying where you could improve is a good start to developing strategies for the use of colour.
- Think about age, gender, cultural background, religious or spiritual needs and socio-economic circumstances of people with dementia and families when selecting colours.
- Create up to five colour swatches from which new residents and families can choose their preferred colour scheme for bedrooms, ideally including fabric, wallpaper and paint samples.
- Think about staff preferences for colours in staff areas.
- Select the colour of more expensive items, such as furniture and furnishings before selecting paint, which is less expensive and easier to change.
- Increase colour contrast between furniture and walls to increase visibility.
- Provide effective colour contrasting throughout a facility, unless wanting to minimise visibility.
- Select colours that allow for ageing vision and visual ability.
- Combine light colours, such as yellow or green, with dark colours, such as red or blue, to produce the most effective contrasts.
- Avoid dark green against bright red, yellow against white, blue against green, and lavender against pink.
- Test colour samples under proposed lighting conditions to verify how they will appear.
- Provide good lighting to enhance your colour scheme.
Colour in dining areas
- Add colour contrasting edges to tables to increase visibility.
- Use placemats that colour contrast with table tops, plates and utensils.
- Select cups and plates with colour contrasting rims or edges to improve visibility.
- Contrast plates, utensils and containers in colour or brightness against table cloths.
- Encourage skilful use of colour on white plates to make food easier to see and eat.
- Use clear, high colour contrast print of appropriate size on menu cards and place cards where used.
Colour in bathrooms
- Colour contrast toilet seats with toilet bowls and floor.
- Use warm peach coloured tones that flatter skin tones.
Colour combinations for effective colour contrasts are light colours against black, dark colours against white, light yellow against dark blue, light green against dark red.
The healthcare industry is full and challenges and care of patients with dementia are more challenging than most. When choosing your next aged care uniform please take into account the research that is currently being done into colours and patterns for uniforms in Australia and in countries like the US, Canada and in Europe. Talk to Infectious so we can help you choose the best medical uniform for your healthcare team. You should even consider the colour of your facility logo and workers names and designations when buying uniforms.

Medicine and health care have made great advances in the last century. Due to timely medical help, the life span of people has increased. Surgery and nursing have become far more advanced than it was before and much importance is being given to cleanliness and hygiene. In the past, only hot water was used to sterilize instruments and that too was not done properly.
All surgical instruments like scalpels and scissors were sterilized using antiquated methods of boiling water on kitchen stoves. Doctors and nurses went into surgery in their everyday clothes and just washed their hands before operating. All this has changed now and more importance is being given to sanitizing and using disposable instruments plus PPE like gloves, aprons, face masks, caps and others. Surgeons and nurses too wear clean, medical uniforms to the Operating theatre. Nurses wear a compulsory uniform which set them apart and gives them an air of authority.
A nurse in a dirty uniform is a rare sight. Although they usually wore white scrubs, nurses always appeared neat and tidy. White is the sign of peace and stands for serenity. Hospital scrubs are usually pastel colours so that patients feel a sense of calm when they move around them. Plain scrubs are easier to wash and maintain than coloured ones. Nurses in bright colours like red or orange would look alarming to patients they are attending to. Pale uniforms are easy to maintain as they can be washed in hot water to remove stains as well as sterilize them. Hospitals have uniforms to maintain a sense of decorum and discipline. Imagine doctors and nurses wearing garish colours.
A person in uniform looks authoritative and commands respect. Nurses scrubs come in pastel colours like light blue or green. Surgeons too usually wear either blue or green gowns while performing operations the surgery. These scrubs are made of 70% cotton and 30% polyester. Cotton fabric is very skin-friendly and lets the skin breathe. Now we are using more and more disposable gloves, masks aprons and caps. This ensures germ-free and sterilized environment in operating theatres as well as in the wards where nurses are working.
Now even general surgeons and dental nurse uniforms are being standardized. Dentists now want their nurses to wear scrubs to give a more professional and germ-free look to the clinic. These uniforms are now available ready to wear in the market or even online. People have become very conscious of their appearance, smile and therefore the teeth. Dentists too are providing cosmetic enhancements on a daily basis which meet growing demands of their patients. Cosmetic surgeons wear premium quality scrubs as their patients expect them to look the most professional.
These days premium medical apparel brands like Dickies, Code Happy and WonderWink create medical uniforms that require little maintenance or ironing due to advances in fabric technology.
Choose Dickies Xtreme Stretch, WonderTECH, W123, WonderWORK for high-quality scrubs that are easy to maintain.
