The Accidental Entrepreneur

Owner & founder of CastCoverz!, Annette Giacomazzi, started out just like any other empathetic mom… wanting to make her daughter’s 6th broken bone a little more bearable. Annette began creating cute & fun covers for Elli’s casts, which quickly evolved into slings, seasonally themed cast covers– you name it! The ideas just kept coming!  Friends and family are supposed to “ooh” and “aah” and be supportive of an injured child or a mom with an idea.  But, it’s when strangers stopped them on the street that Annette had her “AHA!” moment and CastCoverz! was born.

First, Annette’s family contributed as the hands and feet of the business, out of their home.  The first employees even worked out of their home!  Eventually, CastCoverz! expanded to a warehouse that required a full team of sewists, shippers and customer service gems! Having found a unique niche in the orthopedic retail market, Annette created a flourishing business.

Fast forward 13 years, CastCoverz! is now the largest online retailer for orthopedic products and has earned its title by providing fun & functional products to comfort orthopedic patients. We are proud to have served hundreds of thousands of customers and retailers around the world.

Cast Covers Saved the Day

Breaking a bone is certainly no fun, especially during summertime!  Harlisha Homer, a mom and blogger for Macaroni Kid, is not a fan of broken bones, but quickly became a fan of CastCoverz!, when her youngest son broke two bones on a swing this past June, during a family reunion.  She wrote a thoughtful review titled “A Broken Bone, and How CastCoverz! Saved the Day“, which you can read in it’s entirety on the Macaroni Kid-SW Houston-Missouri City Blog.

Her poor son was traumatized and Harlisha, bless her heart, tried everything she could to make him comfortable enough to get some sleep, which was not an easy challenge!

Sleeperz!, the oh-so-soft and cozy cast cover, which came to the rescue and helped her boy sleep through the night from that night forward…AHH!  Harlisha highly recommends CastCoverz! products to help make an uncomfortable situation that much more bearable.  As we say here at CastCoverz!, Feel Better, Heal Better!
