DOLAN’s new TLC Scrubs have arrived! These beautiful, lightweight scrubs feature the latest technology to keep you comfortable through the most hectic of days. We talked with our Founder and President, Jodie Dolan, about what makes TLC scrubs so special:
How did you come up with the name TLC Scrubs? I assume this has nothing to do with the popular song from the 90s?
It doesn’t, but the possibilities are endless! The name TLC stands for The Light Choice. They’re lighter weight (perfect for layering!) than most other scrubs—designed so that you will forget you’re wearing your ‘uniform.’
The name is also a play on our mission to protect and care for our community. We could all use a little TLC right now.
What’s exciting about these new scrubs?
Unlike most scrubs, our new scrubs are functional, flattering AND stylish. TLC combines our 15+ years’ experience as a fashion design company with the latest in textile innovations. We know about fit and style. We’ve heard that there are not a ton of options in this category and we’re known for making comfortable ‘cute,’ so we’re excited to share our vision of what women in the healthcare space can look and feel like.
Tell me more about the innovations.
TLC Scrubs are incredibly soft and specifically designed for comfort, fit and performance. They’re breathable, and our temperature regulating yarns keep you comfortable by adjusting to your body temperature. We’ve heard from our real-world customers that whether you are in an air-conditioned office or a freezing unit in the hospital it’s a layering game. The temperature regulating yarn is intended to make you even more comfortable.
What was unique about the process of designing scrubs for DOLAN?
We pay close attention to detail and use the same thoughtful design process as if we were draping a dress. We added an additional 2x1 rib panel for extra stretch and movement. In our fashion world, mixing fabrics to maximize comfort is something we’re really known for. In fact, we’ve been told our new scrubs feel like something you’d want to wear even when you’re not working.
1 purchase = 1 pound of clean laundry for people experiencing homelessness #ThreadsWithBenefits
How did you come up with the names for each style? The MacArthur Top, the Huntington Jogger...
All of our styles are named after champions of our nonprofit, The Laundry Truck LA, which provides free laundry services to people experiencing homelessness in our community. Some are named for locations we serve, others are named after the people who support and work side by side with us every day.
Very cool. Anything else we should know?
I also love the fabric’s two-way stretch—you can move in these scrubs! They’re also made from eco-friendly recycled poly, and finished with Viroblock technology that resists bacteria and microorganisms.
And importantly—every TLC purchase supports The Laundry Truck LA. Every piece we sell contributes a pound of clean laundry for a neighbor in need.
Why is TLC perfect for today’s healthcare workers?
We’re grateful to our healthcare workers, who have faced unthinkable challenges this past year (check out our Healthcare Hero stories here). Our TLC Scrubs offer an extremely comfortable and easy to wear uniform for these dedicated women to wear every day, as they work so hard to protect and care for us all. We will also be offering mens scrubs later this year!
