“A nude bra, skin-tone tights / pantyhose – basics of every woman’s wardrobe. In theory…It’s the grand debate, what do I wear under a white or sheer blouse? What colour hosiery will go with these amazing shoes? Black just isn’t going to work. The simple answer is nude. But my nude isn’t the nude I see in shops. Despite the reality that women of colour have the same needs as all women when it comes to lingerie and hosiery (and spend the same of their hard-earned money), the industry simply doesn’t cater to us. So, I thought, it’s time to rethink the definition of nude. Thus, Nubian Skin was born.”
Nubian Skin offers a collection of bras, panties, tights (pantyhose) and hold-ups in four skin-tones, and will be available online (shipping internationally) in October. For more info, check out their blog.
