Romantic sleepwear and timeless loungewear.
Nui Ami brings a new approach to sleepwear, combining versatility and comfort with luxury and sophistication. Our collections softens the boundaries between night and day, between sleepwear and loungewear. Our signature chemises, camisoles and sleep bralettes are uniquely cup-sized 30-40 A-GG and are designed to bring confidence and comfort without compromise. By ensuring a perfect fit in the finest natural fabrics Nui Ami is ideal for both hot and cold sleepers alike.
Travel is core to our designs: we are inspired by beautiful landscapes and places, and the women who embody their spirit.
Provenance is important to us. Our collections are hand-stitched using the finest Italian silks, French Leavers lace, Austrian jerseys and French cottons. We are very proud to design here in London and manufacture in both the UK and in Portugal in ethically responsible small ateliers.
Over the years, I have struggled to find sleepwear that suits both my style and cup size. All too often, women have had to choose between the bordello and the boring when dressing for bed. And as most sleepwear is available in a limited range of sizes, my own experience has been one of poor cup fit, with little or no support, resulting in an unflattering silhouette. Despite much talk of sleepwear as outerwear and crossing into loungewear, in reality women are still burdened by bras 24/7.
Talking to my female friends and colleagues, I was amazed to learn how many slept in a bra and that most were unhappy with their sleepwear choices – as were their partners. There seemed to be a real desire among women to look more attractive at bedtime and at home in sleepwear that is subtly appealing and feminine, rather than overtly sexual.
Driven by my passion for creative design and entrepreneurship, I decided to create a collection that offered women the elusive fusion of comfort, support and sophistication they were seeking. After eighteen months of hard work, lots of determination and the luck of meeting a few key people in the lingerie industry who joined our team, we launched Nui Ami’s in late 2015 and have continued to create elegant sleepwear and lounge that are pretty enough to seduce in but comfortable enough to sleep in.
