Skinnies UK Silk Babygrow

We are always keen to hear from our customers and those who have been prescribed Skinnies therapeutic clothing from their GP. This week we were thrilled to have some feedback sent to us in the form of a review and another on Twitter. We thought we would share this feedback with you so you can hear real life stories about the effectiveness of our garments.

Skinnies Review from Becky P.

Becky used Skinnies with her 2 year old son who suffers with areas of dry and itchy skin. The problematic zones are found on his tummy and on the back of his knees. Becky was a bit sceptical initially but she was amazed to find that the Skinnies suit was extremely effective. To help her son with his uncomfortable itching the suit was put on mainly in the mornings. We were told he loves to wear the outfit and Becky thinks he looks really cute in it to. More importantly Becky was pleased to inform us that the itchiness and the dryness would practically disappear by the evening.

Becky has been delighted with the response and she gave Skinnies a rating of 5 out of 5. She also lent one of her friends a set of the leggings and top to help her own son with his skin condition and has heard nothing but praise, her friend went on to order her son a set of his own.

We are thrilled with this feedback and so pleased to learn of two little boys who are finding their skin less itchy and uncomfortable. If you’d like to read more reviews on our Skinnies garments please visit the Talk Health Partnership.

On May 1st  2014 we launched the brand new children’s WEB garment, the new addition to our WEB product range.  The WEB garments are designed for patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa, but they are also recommended for paitients suffering with burns .

One of the problems these garments address for EB sufferers and burns victims is the time that needs to be spent changing dressings. Flat and tubular bandages often come lose, causing extra irritation and increasing the risk of bacteria reaching the skin resulting in painful infections. With this in mind we have carefully designed a more comfortable and safer option that will save time when it comes to changing dressings and help to protect the wounds on the skin in order to promote faster healing.  

All of the Webb garments are completely seamless, providing greater comfort for the wearer and the lack of seams also removes problems caused by friction against the skin. Unlike the bandages the garment fits naturally close to the skin, it’s comfortable and easy to put on and take off.

All of the Skinnies UK WEB garments, including the new children's garment are available on prescription from your GP. If you would like to buy directly from us you can do so by visiting the WEB Product page or by giving us a call on 01562 884 898. You can also contact us on Facebook and Twitter where we share the latest news and regular updates.
