Welcome, I’m Debora Carrier, Founder and CEO of Twice as Nice Uniforms. My last 2 years have been dedicated to developing Twice as Nice Uniforms with removable liners. I was tired of being cold, wearing ill-fitting scrubs, and not feeling like I looked professional. As a dental hygienist, I needed a scrub that moved with me but retained its shape. I also needed added warmth as my office was very cold. I tried every combination of layering – which resulted in a bulky, sloppy appearance and loss of range of motion. Not to mention adding sweaters, fleece jackets, and long sleeves t-shirts did not look very professional or feel very hygienic. I was also very frustrated with the very limited selection of stylish scrubs – as a former fashion model, style and fit are very important to me.
My first step was designing a removable liner – this gives the wearer a choice and provides them with two-scrubs-in-one. I researched high performance fabrics and discovered a very thin, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking fabric perfect for fitting under scrubs without adding bulk. The first day that I wore my prototype to work, I was amazed! I was warm, felt like I looked good, and I could move freely! I wanted to share this with everyone! What a difference this made to my workday.
Next, I started developing the outer fabric. I needed a fabric that was easy to care for, required no ironing and did not pill or fade. Soft fabric with a little stretch seemed like the right way to go. My fabric moves with you and stays looking beautiful.
When we feel good about our appearance, it reflects in our overall well-being. When you look good, you feel good! The fit of medical scrubs has always baffled me. Why do we have to wear outfits to work that look like our pajamas? Medical uniforms were ready for an updated style that fits all body types and makes us look like the professional we are. In designing Twice as Nice Uniforms, I worked with a fit specialist and designed a scrub that is very flattering to all female body types, is comfortable and looks amazing!
As a healthcare provider, I am very proud of my profession and education. Like any other professionals, we deserve to look good and project a professional appearance while we go about our busy day. Your patients will recognize and appreciate the image that you project in a stylish, well-tailored, high quality uniform.
I love wearing my Twice as Nice Uniforms, and I feel amazing in them. And now, I am able to share them with you! I truly believe that my innovative design is a simple solution to an everyday problem. Please enjoy, stay comfortable, look professional, be great!
Bringing Comfort to Those Who Comfort Others,
Debora Carrier, RDH
