What color is nude? Have you ever stopped to think?
Is this nude?
Or is this?
Many people immediately conjure up images of beiges, tans and creams. A quick Google image search will show the same. Are these neutral tones true to everyone?
Nubian Skin, a lingerie company focused on redefining nude, wants women of color to know that nude is also brown. It’s berry, café au lait, caramel, and cinnamon.
Ade Hassan, the creator of Nubian Skin, designed a collection of lacey and plain lingerie for women of color. On the company’s website, women of color can finally find the right nude undergarment for their skin-tone.
For those who may need help identifying their skin-tone, Nubian Skin provides an easy guide to find the perfect skin-tone match. The site uses popular makeup shades to identify your hosiery color.
For example, the darkest shade of lingerie available is “berry.” Nubian skin suggests this color is suited best for individuals who wear popular foundation colors such as Mac NW50, Bobbi Brown Expresso 10, and Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint in Beige 90.
After finding the right skin tone, consumers can shop Nubian Skin’s collection which features beautifully designed bras, ranging from 30B to 36DD in size. Push-up, convertible, lacey and t-shirt styles are all available for purchase. To complement their nude bras, the collection also features matching underwear in various shapes including thongs, shorts, lace shorts and briefs. The London based company also has expanded into the sale of hosiery for women of color in the form of tights and hold-ups.
Nubian Skin’s lingerie collection is more than undergarments. It’s about promoting inclusivity for all and redefining societal norms. It’s about women empowerment and finally embracing color.
As the site states, “every revolution starts somewhere.”
