Kirsty Glynn - Founder
The idea for Well Cool came about after one of Kirsty's sons needed prolonged hospital care when he was younger. He had great treatment but due to some of the medication he was on, he gained weight and his regular pyjamas became too tight and didn't work around IVs and catheter. He also hated the Hospital Gowns as they posed the same problems as his own pyjamas.
Kirsty, a trained nurse and first hand experience of nursing people wearing Hospital Gowns & traditional nightwear, realised that if there were child friendly & practical pyjamas designed specifically for hospital, not only would it enhance her sons comfort and privacy, it would allow her to help in his care whilst letting the busy specialist nurses get on with their work. Her son is now thankfully very well.
Well Cool Clothing was incorporated in 2010 (at the time both her sons used to use the term “that’s Well Cool” constantly) but the company was dormant for a few years as her main priorities were optimising her sons health and raising a family. More research on Well Cool started in 2015 on a part-time basis, although first design protection dates back to 2011 for children & adults & for those with a disability. These garments were so different to what Well Cool design is today !
Well Cool Clothing is a Social Business. A % of sales go back into the Hospitals & our Children’s range will become Not for Profit as we grow.
