Making Hospital Visits
More Comfortable

Say Good-bye to the oversized, revealing one-size fits all traditional hospital gowns! Our line of designer Gownies are made for style, comfort, and are hospital staff approved when it comes to ALL your medical needs.

Our story

Two moms with one dream have worked together for years to build an amazing company. Born in Germany, Isabelle met Helen, born in England, in 1998 here in the States both with newborn babies and a very long way from home and family help. They had an instant connection and desire to continue working but remain at home with their children. In 2002 the two began talking of bringing their dreams to reality, but it wasn’t until 2005 after many years of establishment and searching for a great factory with high quality control that Gownies was launched.

Our philosophy

With 6 children between the two partners, and long stays in the hospital’s drab, dingy, oversized and revealing gowns, Isabelle and Helen designed Gownies. The hospital issue gowns are uncomfortable, thinly made, and only come in a one-size fits all. They are also extremely revealing both in the rear and during any examination process. Gownies are designed with the patient in mind. There is no need for a small string at the top and half way down the back that is ready to pop open at any moment delivering complete rear exposure, Gownies are designed with a completely snapped down back ensuring both comfort and full coverage.

Our Products

The front of each Gownie also has snaps on either side for easy access by medical staff for examination and for comfortable and less revealing breast feeding. Gownies are made from 100% cotton and completely machine washable, and come in a variety of stylish designs and colors. Good-bye drab and Hello Fab! With the option of choosing from 3 different sizes, Gownies will comfort you in your own size. No more need for a petite woman wearing a hospital issued gown that can fit someone twice her size. Gownies wear can also be extended from the hospital stay, and worn at home after delivery during the recovery process.

We’ve got you covered

When designing these Gownies, having been through numerous deliveries ourselves, we took into account everything that should be changed on a delivery gown – and here it is!
Hospital provided delivery gowns are simply awful – you are in a totally new environment and have no option than to wear this old over sized gown given to you. Often you are asked to wear two, one backwards to cover the gaps in the back while getting up and moving around. The last thing you need to be doing is constantly adjusting, strings untied, shoulder falling down and retying those horrible strings or asking someone to do it for you! You want comfort, you want to feel covered, you want to feel prepared – and maybe a little bit of control – not to mention feeling good about yourself!
Recently we have added so many matching pieces we feel you will love and reach for over and over again. Rest assured that during the developing process, if we are not 100% satisfied with the result, and if we would not buy it ourselves, we will not market it. We personally love each and every gown, as if it would be our own.
So whether you are about to deliver your first baby, recovering at home, facing chemotherapy or radiation, surgery, or if you are being admitted into a long term care nursing home, Gownies can keep you looking stylish, feeling better, keep you covered, and provide you with the comfort and ease that is required in the hospital setting.
