Like so many essential objects, UpliftingNighties.com was born out of necessity. Two friends, Laura and Margaret, discussed their need for sleepwear that is both stylish, and supportive -- meaning they wanted to be able to walk around their homes, in front of husbands, older kids, extended family, without having to wear a bra.
The two set about to create pajamas and nighties that emphasize comfort and elegance. Laura and Margaret designed pieces that include the most comfortable shelf bra ever --- no padding at all, no tight binding, yet so effective you will be appropriately lifted, and wont need to worry about others being able to see your nipples.
Customers love the support, elegance, and the fabric. All nighties and pjs are made of 94% modal and 6% spandex. First developed by the Austria Lenzing company, modal is an innovative, organic fiber that is made from cellulose, usually derived from wood pulp. Modal feels like cotton or silk -- it is cool to the touch and extremely absorbant.
One of the advantages of modal over cotton is its resistance to shrinkage, a notorious problem with cotton. Modal is also less likely to fade or to form pills as a result of friction. Its smoothness also makes hard water deposits less likely to adhere to the surface, so the fabric stays soft through repeated washings.
In Europe, Modal is already widely used in clothing as a replacement for cotton.
The small, women-owned, business resides in Potomac, Maryland, and is proud to produce all of its garments in the USA of fabric also made in the USA.
