It was one of those things that I didn’t realize how much I needed until I saw it. How did we go so long without a line of lingerie and hosiery made specifically for brown girls? Although nude undergarments are a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe, finding your perfect shade was once an impossible task. But now that Nubian Skin has arrived, you can find a nude that is truly a nude on your chocolate, cinnamon, caramel or honey skin.
Founder Ade Hassan created Nubian Skin for women experiencing the frustration of finding skin-perfect undergarments. After being inspired by fashion and beauty innovators like Iman and Eunice Johnson, Ade decided it was time for a “different kind of nude.” Nubian Skin is headquartered in London, but being delivered to women of color worldwide. Here are some of the line’s must-have pieces.
