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.

CastCoverz! for Happy Holidays

Don’t let an injured arm or leg take the “ho-ho-ho” out of your holiday season! As the mom of a child who has broken over 20 bones – and owner of CastCoverz! ® who has served tens of thousands of customers – I know firsthand that wearing a cast, boot, splint, sling or being on crutches can dampen the holiday spirit. Not only do our covers protect your clothes, furniture, and skin from snags and scratches, and keep your unexpected wardrobe necessity clean, they also add fun to your not-so-fun injury.

So, why not make your cast or boot the talk of the holidays with a festive cast cover?

Following are just a handful of our most popular holiday prints.
