A New Nude Lingerie Line For Women Of Color

Do a quick Google search for “nude bra,” and you’ll notice one striking similarity between all the results: the fashion industry’s definition of “nude” caters almost exclusively to those with light skin. Women of color looking for lingerie were often left without many options until Ade Hassan founded Nubian Skin, a company that creates bras, panties and hosiery in “a different kind of nude.”

All of Nubian Skin’s lingerie comes in four different shades–Berry, Cinnamon, Caramel and Café au Lait–with corresponding foundations from major beauty brands to get the perfect match. The only problem? For American customers, it can take up to 3 weeks to receive an order from the beloved London-based brand, but as of this week, Nordstrom is now an official carrier of Nubian Skin’s essentials. YASSSS.

That perfect sheer-white-tee-and-distressed-jeans look can totally be achieved with their comfy Underwire T-Shirt Bra ($55) and Mid Rise Briefs ($16), but if you plan on going for a skin-tight, strapless dress instead, they’ve also got you covered with the Convertible Strapless Bra ($60) and Seamless Thong ($16). We’re so stoked this brand just got a whole lot easier to shop in the U.S., and apparently, there’s even “more news coming soon.”
