Lightweight scrubs for Summer

lightweight scrubs

At Harveys Workwear, we’re conscious of every professional’s safety and comfort when wearing Healthcare scrubs. Especially in the warmer summer months, your comfort at work can easily become compromised, with increased sweating and less breathable conditions. For employers, this can lead to a dive in productivity and general unrest within your teams. Comfort is key and contributes to welfare, workplace happiness and satisfaction. With the importance of wearer comfort in mind, we strive to ensure all-year comfort and breathability with our lightweight scrubs.

Our main passion in particular is supplying the care sector with protective uniforms, including high quality, medical-grade scrubs and tunics.  Whether you choose your teams to adorn a scrub or a tunic, you can rest assured they’re the most breathable, comfortable choice for all seasons.

Because the scrubs are medical-grade and designed for heavy activity and daily wear, we’ve ensured their design is breathable, especially in the summer.

To ensure your teams are equipped with the correct scrub uniform, we dedicated an article, the importance of properly fitted scrub suits which is also worth a read. If you’re unsure how to ensure your team’s scrubs fit correctly, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

What makes the scrub breathable?

Many important factors form the design process of the humble scrub, with a particular focus on its breathability. Our medical scrubs and uniforms are perfectly comfortable all year round due to the considerations of the following:

  • The choice of fabric
  • Lightweight, breathable fibres
  • Prevention of over-heating as part of the design process
  • Adjustable features included within the design process, which enhance the style and fit
  • Stretch, free movement and versatility
  • Personalisation of designs, with additional features, such as zips, stud fastenings, tunics and other scrub suit accompaniments
  • An optional under-scrub or base layer for added comfort and protection from perspiration

Other factors when choosing summertime scrubs

Other factors need to be taken into consideration when choosing the correct scrubs for your profession and the current season. The below factors are sometimes overlooked, so see this as a friendly reminder.

Size up

With Harveys we provide sizes from XS to plus-size, to ensure each professional is included and able to find the perfect scrub for them. This is part of our personalised service. We recommend your teams sizing up in the summer months, to allow more room for increased airflow.

Choose lighter shades

As mentioned in our previous article, The impact of colour on healthcare scrubs – coloured scrubs,  colour has a significant impact on the wearer. Not only does it boost morale and confidence, but having a lighter pastel colour for the warmer months will ensure coolness. Think back to a lovely summer day and remember what you chose to wear. It was more than likely a yellow, light green or baby blue, as opposed to a cooler-weather shade, such as grey or black.

At Harveys, we always look forward to helping you choose the perfect scrubs for your teams, especially in the summer months. Please feel free to contact us today, via our  website, by email or by calling one of our friendly team on 0161 624 9535.
