“A complete lifesaver, these are the items of clothing that I always wished existed. Now they do, fantastic!!” – Louisa, Birmingham
“Oh my, the solution to my damp and restless nights. Bonus I can wear the pants during yoga as well.” – Beth, Manchester
“I wore the slip dress to sleep in after giving it a quick wash through (as I do with all new nightwear) and it air dried quickly (indoors) before bedtime. It fitted well after adjusting the shoulder straps a little and was really really comfortable – especially with the bra shelf being there to give some extra support. With the slip containing lycra, this gave it more stretch and maneuverability. Normally I would awake during the night with my cotton nightdress wet through (menopause), but I stayed dry and comfortable during the night which was fantastic! My slip was still dry when I awoke in the morning. I’m very pleased with the performance of this slip – thank you. I have placed an order for a couple more items. More plus sizes in the range would be a bonus.” – Janice, Preston
“Thank you for giving me a solution to my sleepless nights! Having been on Tamoxifen for over 5 years after being diagnosed with breast cancer at 38 I have suffered dreadfully with night sweats. It had never occurred to me how debilitating night sweats could be and It has been a regular occurrence for me to have to change my nightwear and even the sheets of a night.
The Esteem – No Pause slip I have been wearing has been fantastic, it even feels cool to the touch, is of fabulous quality and gives the right amount of support and I have slept through even in the sweltering nights we have had recently.
Thank you Jane. I will definitely be recommending your products to friends and family.” – Jane, Stockport
“The Esteem no pause slip dress is AMAZING!!
The fabric feels smooth and slinky and it is soft and gentle on the skin.
I have given the garment a good test by wearing it both in bed and during the day. I have washed it several times. It washes like a dream and dries super quickly. I have done my exercise workouts while wearing it and also worn it for house work. Both of which always make me sweaty. The slip dress passed with flying colours and is absolutely wonderful. I will definitely be buying more items from you. I no longer dread the sweats, in fact I now welcome them if I am wearing Esteem because the clothes perform so well.
The slip dress is a good fit although I would like a much longer one for wearing in bed because my legs get sweaty too. I could buy the trousers and wear them as pyjamas with the dress or vest.
The normal advice is to wear cotton or linen during the menopause but the Esteem fabric is a million times better. With linen and cotton I wake up in the night dripping with sweat but NOT IF I AM WEARING ESTEEM.” – Dawn, Trophins
“I suffer from a chronic back pain condition. Sometimes the only thing that eases it enough to let me sleep is having a hot water bottle on my back. As you can imagine, this is fine in the winter. In the summer, it’s a different story. I had assumed that feeling clammy and uncomfortable were going to be the price I have to pay for the pain relief.
The slip dress was surprisingly brilliant. I still felt hot, but the horrible clammy feeling was completely gone. The fabric is cool on the skin, it fits snugly but without feeling tight or uncomfortable, and doesn’t slip around or get twisted. It’s incredibly comfortable to sleep in. It makes me want to buy 3 or 4, so that I’ve always got one on the go” – Monika, Stockport
“I tried ‘the slip’ whilst I was on holiday, in my motorhome.
In addition to being in the midst of the menopause, sleeping in what is basically a tin can creates perfect conditions for the dreaded ‘night sweats’.
I found the slip remarkably comfortable – the fabric is cool, slinky and fits like a lightweight glove! As usual, I experienced two or three sweats each night, but I can honestly report that for the first time I didn’t ‘suffer’ them. I remained cool and unflustered as the fabric works exactly as Jane had described it. It feels like I’ve finally found something that works for me and makes me less worried about going to sleep!” – Sharon, Stockport
“A high-quality well made item which looks stylish and ensures I don’t wake up looking a mess. Also impressed with the sturdy inner bra shelf which provides good support for my ample bosom! Thank you.” – Helen, Bury
“The slip is so soft, light and comfortable. A little large on my bust but then I have a large body and small boobs. I just wanted to wear it all the time. It was great during the heatwave. Plus it washes and dries beautifully.” – Christine, Farnborough
“I am 72 years of age and 18months ago I started to suffer from terrible night sweats. I had suffered from them during the menopause but this I later found was caused by vasculitis ( inflammation of my aorta artery). Although I am now on medication I am still having sweats. I was given the Esteem garment to try and can thoroughly recommend it.
The slip is easy to wear, looks feminine, washes well and the fabric does not seem to retain moisture and stick to you. Consequently I felt more comfortable and got a better nights sleep.” – Mary, Stockport
“I chose the extra large size being normally a 14/16 depending on brand of clothing.
The slipdress was very comfortable to sleep in. It did not move too much in the night and always kept me comfortable and cool. The fabric feels nice and is a lightweight fabric, and clearly a quality item.
The colour was skin tone and so would be useful for many women, particularly if using as underwear -however if I was to reorder i would be looking for a black or a colour such as pink for nightwear use.
Although I am short at around 5ft 2ins, (and the item covered all the necessary areas), – I would have been happy with a little extra length on the Slipdress – and would suggest a longer length option for those that prefer/are taller. (5cm or so)
If I could suggest any fit refinement it would be that the bra area could have been more fitted (not wired or with a bra section) just a neater fit, and the dress part more roomy, for the typical British pear shape.
This is obviously my personal observation and relevant to my body shape, but I hope of use for the general market.
The Slipdress washed very well and has been washed twice with no issues.” – Julie, Solihull
“Have been fortunate enough to trial the men’s T-shirt and it’s a real quality item – the fit is excellent and the material is top class and very comfortable.
I’m a drummer and wore the T-shirt at a particularly sweaty gig in an airless pub on a Summer’s evening….and it definitely worked; kept me comfortable even though saturated! Very impressive. Unhesitating recommendation from me.” – Martin, Manchester
“Indispensable!Slip dress is so versatile. Cool, classy feel under dresses on hottest of days and in normally overbearing centrally heated environments ( busy hospital clinics). Makes clothes infinitely more comfortable. Light & unrestrictive as nightwear too. Superb fabrication that washes and dries efficiently. Extensive trial in many settings: home, work, leisure & sleeping. ‘Strictly’ score would be a 10. Highly recommended.” – Dr Clough, Yorkshire
“I am 18 years old and wore the vest and palazzo pants to help with sweating during my periods and they were more comfortable and helped with overheating better than just usual pyjama shorts. They really work and are more comfortable than other solutions to night sweating.” – Hari, Manchester
