From the Editor… Linda B (Oswestry, Shropshire, England, UK) recently shared the following information with the PRP Facebook Community: “… I found Skinnies clothing products held my skin to retain moisture. They are soft and comfortable, and do not irritate.”

Here’s what the folks at Skinnies say about themselves…
“Skinnies have developed a range of Therapeutic Clothing Products that help aid recovery from eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions. Our garments are completely seamless, utilising technologically advanced yarns that are designed to be anti-irritant.
“Skinnies are high quality, robust garments for every day and wear and tear, with a combination of colour, style and comfort, which belies a serious medical purpose. All our therapeutic clothing is available on prescription.
“Our passion comes from personal experiences of young members of our own family who suffered the discomfort, school embarrassment and hassle of having to use traditional protective wrappings.
“Take a look at what your children are wearing now.
✽ Does it have seams and labels that irritate and scratch?
✽ Does it look like its made form bandages?
✽ Are they poorly fitting?
✽ Do they rip and damage easily”
“Skinnies are designed to look good and feel great to wear, but with a serious medical purpose in mind. Designed and manufactured from anti-irritant yarn with unique seamfree technology.
“Using custom built machines that provide close knit weave for strength and durability, our garments are knitted in such a way as to be seamfree…. ”
All Skinnies garments have;
✽ Seamfree technology – no more friction, less bulky and freedom to move
✽ Better body fit – more comfortable, superbly soft and wearable
✽ Different colours – they don’t look medical, and are great to wear ✽ Been tested to withstand more than 50 washes for real durability
✽ A cost per wash much less than other garments making them a cost effective choice for the NHS.”
