Frequently Asked Questions

You've got questions, we have answers.  Below are a few of the top questions and comments we receive regarding Performance Scrubs.  If you cannot find the answer to your question, email us directly.


Are they clingy?

No.  The styling of each unique design is sized to accentuate the body's curves, but not to cling to the body. Choose the style that works best for your body type and check the measurements on the website to make sure that you order the size that will fit as you wish.


Do they shrink?

No.  Performance Scrubs are made from a specialized fabric that does not incorporate cotton, so no need to be concerned with any shrinking, even when washed in hot water and tumbled dry.


They feel heavier than my normal scrubs.

The fabric is denser than the scrubs you may have worn before, but that is a good thing!  The inherent moisture wicking, antimicrobial, properties mean a much higher thread count and an incorporation of silver ions to provide the performance properties that give our scrubs the comfort factor you desire.


How custom can you go?

The design tool on our website shows you how many unique pocket, trim, sleeve length, pant length, and pocket ribbon options there are to choose from.  These inherent flexibilities allow you to be the designer.  In addition, Performance offers the ability to embroider your logo, name, and professional designation.  Because each scrub piece is custom made to order, Performance can address unique sizing requirements upon request.


Are they hot?

No.  They are made from a unique fabric that is designed to keep you cool and dry.  We actually like to say they have a "built in climate control" feature.


Do they pill?

No.  This fabric is so durable that it maintains its beautiful finish for the life of the garment.  No pilling.  No shrinking.  No fading.  No ironing.


I thought polyester was stiff and hot.

This fabric is nothing like the inexpensive, cotton substitute.  It is polypropylene fabric, but with lots of technology built in to make it the most comfortable next to your skin, and to out perform any other fabric available.  It is the opposite of stiff and hot!


They'll show all my rolls.

You will be surprised to see just how flattering the styling and fit of these scrubs is for every body type.  You will look and feel like a million bucks with no rolls in sight, just a professional silhouette.


I don't like the material.

Change is sometimes tough.  Athletes had a challenging time swapping out their cotton garments for the new high performance, moisture wicking clothing that has swept every sport.  Try a pair of Performance Scrubs and you will see why everyone calls them, "the most comfortable clothing they have ever worn".  And if you still aren?t thrilled, we will refund 100% of your purchase price.


Are they approved by the hospital?

In our experience, we have not come across any hospital that does not view Performance Scrubs as not only acceptable, but desirable due to the fact that they elevate the level of professionalism because of their styling, and they increase productivity because of their comfort level.


I won't look good in that material.

You owe it to yourself to try these scrubs.  Once you put them on, you will see a transformation that is difficult to envision when they are on the hanger.  We have thousands of people of all body types loving how Performance Scrubs look and feel.  They are sophisticated, stylish, and flattering.


They look like Star Trek.

They really are a slight variation on the typical scrub styling.  And the changes that we have made in the look of the scrubs are a direct response to the medical, uniform-wearing professionals that provided the input to the designs.  Each decision from the sleeve length option to the baby doll top addresses a work place need for comfort and performance.


I like cotton.

We like cotton too.  But, like the athletic community, we have found that our specialized high tech fabric out performs cotton in the medical work place.  The functions such as moisture wicking, antimicrobial, no fade, no iron, and no odor coupled with the comfort factor make Performance Scrubs a clear winning choice.


How does the antimicrobial function help?

The built-in antimicrobial functionality stops germs from spreading when they come in contact with the scrubs.  So while it does not kill the bacteria, it helps to control the proliferation of infection in your work place.


How do they fit compared to other scrubs brands?

Our sizing compares to all the popular scrub brands on the market.  The sizing chart on the website will assist you in choosing the best size and style for your body type. Click here to view our sizing charts.


What if I don't like them?

If you are not 100% satisfied with any aspect of your Performance Scrubs, return them for a refund on the original purchase price.  We stand behind our American made scrubs and want all of our customers to be delighted with their investment.


They are more expensive than the ones I can buy at major retailers.

Yes.  The initial cash outlay is more.  However, the cost per wear of Performance Scrubs versus any other scrubs is lower.  Our scrubs are durable, maintain their color vibrancy, and keep their shape wash after wash.  You will want to buy more just because our color combinations and styles are so good looking, but you won't need to buy more frequently because they don?t wear out.


I don't like to spend money like that on my scrubs.  I just don't care that much.  They are just scrubs.

Perhaps you should consider the money you spend on Performance Scrubs as an investment in a good deal.  They will be the lowest cost per wear scrubs you will ever own.  And they will be more comfortable thus allowing you to feel better while you are working.  And you will be investing in your professionalism, as the look and style of these scrubs will ensure that you present yourself in the best possible light.
