Style Spy: Nubian Skin

How many times have you found the perfect dress or outfit only to be disappointed because you can’t find the proper undergarments? Well that has happened to this brown girl more times than I care to admit.  Sometimes black just doesn’t do the trick and the nude options at Victoria’s Secret are so far from my skin tone it’s ridiculous. Since the lingerie industry doesn’t seem to cater to women of color, the brains behind Nubian Skin sought to rethink the definition of nude with a new line of nude hosiery and lingerie for women of color.

With the site launch a little over a month away I’m already impressed with the images posted on their blog and Instagram.

    Such a great concept! I hope the brand carries larger bra sizes because I want to cop one of these as soon as it launches.

      Isn’t it?! Like why haven’t other brands tried this! Either way I’m here for it. According to their blog they will be launching with size 30B up to 36DD/E. If business goes well (which I’m sure it will) they will be able to expand. Hope that helps!

    I actually have very pale skin so this would be no good for me. It looks amazing though, I hope the brand does well!
