Today we are featuring each of the Woman Who…StartUp Finalists. Meet Sukhy Nijjar of Sipsey Lingerie, Finalist in the Woman Who…StartUp Category.
We opened the doors to Sipsey in June 2015 in Solihull. The main unique aspect of our boutique is our expert fitting service. As an independent retailer, we have the greatest understanding of each and every one of our products and how each piece of clothing fits so we can find the perfect fit for our ladies, and the best part about our fitting service is that it’s completely appointment free, women are welcome to walk in anytime they like between opening hours to receive a personal fitting or advice – we not only cater to every day lingerie fittings but also specialise in mastectomy, maternity & first teen fittings. We’re not just limited to lingerie fittings either, we also offer a fitting service for our unique range of swimwear, shape-wear, nightwear and hosiery. Every brand we have to offer in the boutique is here because it has been hand-picked for its high quality, excellent fit and uniqueness to our boutique!
Our main goal is to help educate women and girls alike about the importance of getting fitted regularly and the correlation this has with women’s health and body confidence. Our company ethos is to empower women and encourage body confidence through lingerie and I feel that over the past 19 months, Sipsey has become an advocate for this.
Congratulations Sukhy on being a Finalist.

I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 event, and was completely inspired and moved by the stories of success, determination and sheer grit! Athena focusses exclusively on female executives and entrepreneurs, and The Athena Network provides a platform for members to share knowledge and experience across a diverse range of industry sectors, and to collaborate for mutual success. The partnership between The Women Who…Awards and Athena Network is a perfect combination to develop and grow women in business within our region.
