- When buying a medical professional counter coat, you should take into account a variety of measurements and factors like balance of comfort and functionality.
- A well-fitted and well-sized coat appears much more pleasing to the eye, but it also offers better protection from spills, bio-hazard, or unexpected chemical reactions.
- As a Medical professional you need to have a number of tools and references on hand while at work. As many coats are equipped with a number of outer and inner pockets that often see heavy use, you should remember that when full, these make the coat much tighter than when empty. Therefore, some professionals opt for a slightly over sized or loose-fitting coat to account for this. It keeps the coat comfortable even when packed to the brim with stethoscope, pen light, notebook, goggles, scissor, and the like.
- You should factor heavily into the sizing of a counter coat, have sufficiently long sleeves to cover any exposed skin, protecting it from potentially harmful chemicals or contaminants while on the job, comfortably button, zip, or snap closed the front.
- Men sizes are based on standard suit or sports coat sizes, look for their size on the inside of a jacket or suit you already own, or use a flexible measuring tape to measure the circumference of your chest. You should place the tape under the armpits and wrap it around the shoulder blades in back to account for the widest part of their torso; this is often easier with the help of a second person.
- Women’s sizes are based on standard dress sizes. If you measure yourselves, ensure that you wrap the tape measure relatively loosely under their armpits, over the shoulder blades, and across the front of their bust. Measuring around the hips also helps to ensure a good fit, as some coats are cut to fit the contours of the body.
- You should seek out coats that extend farther down past the hips to cultivate the classic medical appearance.
- 6 feet or under height people may look for regular normal size or slightly shorter in the arms.
- Over 6 feet tall people should look for a long or tall size lab coat
- Stand straight with your arms hanging loosely at your sides. Have a second person measure from the back of the neck in the mid line where the coat and the collar meet, over the shoulder, and down the arm to the wrist where you want the sleeve to end.
- Stand straight with your arms hanging loosely at your sides. Have a second person measure from the back of the neck in the mid line where the coat and the collar meet, and straight down the back to where you would like the coat to end.
- Wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your body (typically the hip or chest area). Allow 2-4 extra inches for the coat to hang loosely away from the body and allow you to comfortably button the coat and put things in your pockets.
