A Women's Perspective on Buying Woman's Lab Coats Online
As a woman, I just feel the need to speak out. The vast majority of women's lab coats I find online that is advertised as "designer" or "qualities" are
merely false advertisements. Most of these lab coats are poorly made from flimsy fabric, with not much attention paid to fitting an actually women's
body. Also, the fabric is nowhere near what you would call "designer" and looks terrible. We aren't talking "made in America" quality fabrics, instead
most of these "designer" lab coats are imported from some far away land.
Haven't the people who design these lab coats ever actually wear lab coats? It seems like they don't even know the basics of what makes a
comfortable one. Lab coats made from cotton/poly blended fabric? That is so uncomfortable. In addition, they don't hold up well to washing and when
you do wash them they hardly come clean. I guess the stains set into the poly or something. Anyone who wears a lab coat during their work day
knows that 100% cotton fabric is much more comfortable. In addition, unlike their cheap cotton/poly blended cousins, they clean and wash better. This
means that the lab coat will last longer and, just as important, look good for your bevy of patients.
Why is it that very few websites offer women's lab coats that are made specifically to fit a women's body? Most say they do but they just don't. There
are sized down versions of men's coats which clearly don't work for me. I look for lab coats that are in women's sizes 0, 2, 4, 6, etc, not men's sizes
that happen to fit a woman. It takes a little searching, but eventually I found a few companies offering specifically fitted women's lab coats in my size. I
even found a few that offer free return shipping- a definite plus with the purchase.
Finding lab coats online that are made in the U.S.A are rare. Those I have found cost a little more but are absolutely worth it. They are much higher
quality that those imported from foreign countries, which means that they last longer (and
