About Malaya


Hi! My name is Nicole. I started this brand in 2017, an idea that was born out of having lived overseas for most of my 20s. Upon moving back to the Philippines, I noticed that there were very few brands locally that focused on inclusivity and body-positivity of women in their messaging.

I also felt that although the Philippines may be forward-thinking in many aspects, it still has some pretty negative views when it comes to sexuality.

Malaya was created as a platform where women can feel free to be themselves. By providing intimate products for all types of women, I want to empower you to not only look good, but feel great.

I’ve always loved wearing lingerie, and how good it makes me feel. I want every woman to feel that way too!

I want women to feel effortlessly sexy. Most lingerie brands are focused on how you feel when a man looks at you. So it’s impractical, uncomfortable and quite frankly too sexed up. I want women to wear one of my sleepwear sets and feel comfortable, confident and ready to take on anything!

Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have. Malaya sleepwear sets are not meant to change who you are (ahem, Victoria Secret). Rather, it’s meant to enhance what’s naturally there. Because what’s natural is beautiful.

I hope you all enjoy wearing these sleepwear sets as much as I enjoyed curating them ❤️

What is Malaya?

Quite literally, it is defined as “to be free”.

Malaya is a celebration of beauty, individuality and self-expression.

We believe that women need to discover themselves in an intimate way: what they want, and what makes them feel good.

At the moment, our main products are sleepwear and loungewear sets. We plan to offer a variety of other products in the future.
