The Story of Jasen and Lisa ~ Part 1 :: Open Heart Surgery

This testimonial is extremely overdue, but we are thrilled to share one of our very first men's hospital gown testimonials. Our men's gown was born in 2012 (yikes)....but, it took us a few years to actually launch our entire line. Back then, we had heard of Jasen's upcoming surgery at Stanford and asked his wife Lisa if they would be up for giving our "David" men's hospital gown a real life whirl in the hospital. We are happy to report that Jasen had succesful heart surgery and the gown was a hit! 

Below is what Lisa had to say about Jasen's experience in Annie & Isabel, 

"I'm happy to report we are back home and Jasen's surgery was a great success! He is healing and on the road to recovery. Thank you so much for the gown. It was AMAZING and everyone on the floor asked about it! He was quite the talk of the floor with the Annie & Isabel gown and I was sure to talk up the brand every time. I kept the hang tag in the room and showed everyone who asked! PR is my profession, you know....LOL. The nurses were especially impressed with the pockets and the telemetry pocket on the front. 

One of the things Jasen loved most about the gown was the fabric. Stanford's issued gowns are a polyester blend and are quite soft - almost flannel feeling - but they do not breathe and can be very hot. Also, the snap closure at the shoulders is wonderful in your gown. Before Jasen was able to change into the Annie & Isabel gown, the standard issue gown kept falling off his shoulder (it has a tie at the shoulder) and just looked awful. I went to great lengths during his stay to make sure Jasen didn't "look" like an ill patient, making sure he was bathed, smelling good and clean and the gown was not helping. It was hanging off his shoulder a lot since they were adjusting the IV's etc. We had him change into your gown right after he left the ICU and he immediately commented on how good it felt. It was comfortable and felt so nice against his skin. 

Thank you doesn't seem like enough...I've attached a photo of Jasen in the gown. In the photo he is almost "unplugged" from his numerous IV's and is sitting in a chair. The gown was plenty long to cover him."


What is most incredible is that Jasen and Lisa will soon be welcoming their first guessed Annie & Isabel! Stay tuned for Part 2 of their story!
