About CEO Intimates
CEO Intimates is a fashionable pajama collection designed for all women. This collection is designed with a cancer patient in mind: sensually soft yet breathable fabrics, easy on & off design, sleeves with accessibility to IV points and ports. The pajamas are dual lined in the chest area, so should you have guests over while you're wearing them, you're not flashing your "headlights".
The idea for CEO Intimates came after Catie E. Ott was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. Her sister, Allison Kritz, had been attending Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with hopes to start a yoga collection. Since they were little girls, they had dreamed up hundreds of business ideas together, as they were meant to be business partners.
One night they were taking a walk in the hospital ward after Allison had made a robe for her sister. Catie expressed that it was one of the only things that still made her feel beautiful... She had recently lost her hair and was growing thin. She also lamented how the pajamas for breast cancer patients weren’t very attractive or flattering. After some research, they found that there was a need for fashion forward lounge wear and pajamas, geared for women who wanted to feel beautiful, even when they were undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation. CEO Intimates was born.Catie passed away on July 8th, 2015, leaving behind a beautiful son named Liam and husband Ben.
