My name is Jenny Reeve, founder of Discretely Different, a small and friendly company inspired and motivated by many disabled people, each with their own particular needs, be they mobility or continence issues. We aim to bring you the best collection of affordable, high quality underwear which is stylish, practical and comfortable.
I could not write about my company without mentioning Josie, a close friend and a lovely person. Josie, the inspiration behind Discretely Different, had Motor Neurone Disease, but she still wanted pretty and practical underwear which would make life easier for her carers, and more dignified for her.
So, with nothing available on the High Street, putting my vast experience of clothing design and development to the test I created the ‘Josie Panty’. The Josie Panty gained Registered Design status in 2008 and Discretely Different was born. Today the Discretely Different range is evolving into a comprehensive collection of specialist underwear and nightwear for ladies and gents.
