      Measure from the fullest part of chest and scapula, arms at sides and relaxed, approximately 1" below axilla. Be sure measuring tape is parallel to the floor. Allow 1-2 fingers below tape for comfort.


      Bend to one side to find the natural crease of your waist. Measure at this point, keeping the tape parallel to the floor and comfortably loose around your waist.


      Measure similarly styled pants that fit you well (such as your favorite khaki pants) and fall to the exact point on your work shoes (clog, sneaker) that you want. Do not use traditional unisex scrubs for measuring. Measure from the crotch seam to the inside hem, following the seam line exactly.

      Care Instructions


      Pre-treat stains prior to washing.


      Machine wash warm, regular cycle. Whites only. Do not use chlorine bleach. Non-chlorine bleach is ok. Do not use liquid fabric softener - it will block the moisture wicking fabric feature.


      Tumble dry medium. Do not use a dryer sheet - it will block the moisture wicking fabric feature. Pull out of the dryer early and fold, or place on a hanger to ensure a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance.


      Fabric is naturally wrinkle resistant. Low to medium iron as needed, max 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

      The Closest Thing To Wearing Your Diploma.

      Allow us the opportunity to display your name and title - embroidered with prestige and perfection - in the manner you've earned. Name & title embroidery is complimentary on orders over $175 and otherwise is $12 per garment.

      Professional logos and any custom logos may be added at an additional charge and will be sewn into the garment(s) of your choice as pictured, on the right side of your garment.

      Please contact us or make a note in the 'comments' box if you would like to make additional customizations to size and placement.

      Please note the partial coverage on longer names (as pictured). A complete guide to coverage can be found in our advice section.


      Name & Title Embroidery

      We have the utmost pride in our embroidery work. Our in-house service allows us to provide exemplary service to our customers and colleagues. We go to great lengths to ensure that each garment is perfectly sewn, inspected, and packaged. The very first thing that a customer notices is not the stitching or the curved lapels or beautiful pocket detail of the garment itself. It's the embroidery. We call it the "icing on the cake." The "stamp of achievement and great sacrifice." For that reason - it must be perfect. And that is our standard.

      • Name & title embroidery is placed above the pocket, anatomical left, unless requested otherwise.
      • There is limited space on certain sizes & styles, on a properly fitted lab coat, which may result in partial lapel coverage. See character limit chart below.
      • To minimize lapel coverage, use first initials, no periods, and choose only one line of embroidery.
      • List your professional title(s) after your last name (Sarah Smith, MD is preferred v. Dr. Sarah Smith)
      • Custom embroidery requires 5-10 additional business days, prior to shipping.
      • Embroidered garments may not be exchanged or returned, unless there was an error on our part.
      • When choosing embroidery on scrubs, the first color selection on each scrub top will match the corresponding drawstring color if you choose to purchase scrub pants.
      • We do not offer separate options for drawstring colors on our scrub pants.

      Logo Embroidery

      Medelita custom logo embroidery is the most impressive way to truly distinguish your lab coat or scrubs. A finishing touch like no other - logo embroidery with your office, clinic, or hospital logo turns a lab coat and/or scrubs into something impressive and polished.

      • Logos are sewn directly onto your selected garment. No patches are available.
      • Depending on the logo, your name & title embroidery may be sewn in a color that matches with logo.
      • We digitize/create the art file for new professional logos and school logos free of charge. Otherwise there is a one-time $150 fee for digitzation. This is the process of turning your logo from flat artwork into embroidery detail – color, number of stitches, shading, etc. Additional fees apply.
      • Upload a .JPG, PDF or .DST of your logo. For your convenience, there is an "upload your logo" button in the right hand column, when making your selections for purchase.
      • Once your logo is received, you will receive a confirmation and your design will be digitized by our expert embroidery team.
      • You will then receive a picture (via email) for approval. This initial process takes approximately 5 days.
      • Up to 3 total adjustments/changes can be made, within the $150 original charge.
      • For adjustments beyond three, a $50 additional charge is applicable.
      • Once approved, garments are scheduled for embroidery.
      • We are committed to working with you until you are 100% satisfied with your custom logo embroidery.

      Advice Regarding Character Length

      On properly fitting, gender specific lab coats with stylish lapels, there is limited amount of space in the area above the pocket, and between the lapel and the armhole. Some sizes and styes have less room than others. It is our priority to alert you in advance that Medelita embroidery is centered above the pocket, and embroidered to a standard size/height that is both legible and high-quality in appearance. The large majority of Medelita customers/colleagues are "ok" with some letters of their first name being partially covered by the lapel. For those that want to ensure that every single letter is visible, please adhere to the following guidelines to prevent coverage in both the first and second lines of embroidery.

      Character Limit Chart

      Use the chart below to identify the maximum characters per size in each garment before the lapel will partially cover your embroidered text.
