Hey! Warmest welcome to CHiLLi HAUS, we’re so happy you’ve stopped by :) We’re Aphra & Freya, two best friends- who also happen to be sisters- from Manchester, UK. We officially started CHiLLi HAUS on a typically cold & wet Mancunian night in early February 2020, because we dreamed of creating a dedicated space in which all womxn could feel seen and celebrated, exactly as they are.
At the absolute core of CHiLLi lies the knowledge & belief that ALL bodies are beautiful and deserving of love, and it’s our mission to spread that message within our lovely growing community, and spread self-love & confidence through gorgeous lingerie that’s lovingly handmade to fit each and every unique body that comes our way.
Traditionally, the lingerie industry has been framed through the male gaze, and dominated by pervasive patriarchal narratives about the way women should look and behave in order to be attractive and therefore acceptable. But here at CHiLLi, we’re dedicated to rejecting these bullshit beauty standards and letting all womxn know that they don’t need to change their bodies to fit our underwear, but rather, we will change our underwear to fit your body- through our FREE bespoke option. Because you deserve lingerie as unique as you are!
We’re a proudly independent, Black-owned, girl-powered, Queer-run business, and we’re passionate about abolishing size segregation, serving fierce lingerie, and smashing the white cisheteropatriarchy!
This HAUS loves absolutely EVERY body! So whether you’re plus, mid or petite… welcome home!
