Luxurious cup size sleepwear and loungewear designed for women.
Nui Ami has a new approach to sleepwear, with the emphasis on versatility and comfort. Our signature chemises, camisoles and sleep bralettes are available in up to ten cup sizes and feature a soft elasticated shaping underband designed to bring confidence without compromising comfort. By ensuring a perfect and confident fit, Nui Ami softens the boundaries between night and day, between sleepwear and loungewear.
Nui Ami's collections are inspired by the world’s most alluring places, and the women who embody their spirit. In London she is modern and bold. In Paris she is sophisticated and chic. In Venice she is opulent and seductive. In Ré she is bonded to the ocean. In New York she has a metropolitan elegance. Nui Ami captures her essence for all women.
Provenance is important to Nui Ami: all our sleepwear is handcrafted using the finest Italian silks, French Leavers lace and Austrian jerseys. We are very proud to design and manufacture here in the UK.
We were delighted to be recognised for the quality of our launch collection by our industry, with a nomination for New Lingerie Designer of the Year 2015 by the UK Lingerie Awards.
Thank you for choosing Nui Ami.
Over the years, I have struggled to find sleepwear that suits both my aesthetic and my 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, which I feel undermines the authenticity of such claims.
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 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 the team, we launched Nui Ami’s first collection: Cities—Part 1 inspired by three cities I know and love, London, Paris and Venice. For Spring/Summer 2016 Islands - Part 1 is inspired by the tranquil Island of Ré off the Atlantic coast of France: our new collection is created in a palette of soft blue jersey inspired by the surrounding ocean and endless sky.
