Lingerie Company Redefines 'Nude' By Offering Bras For Women Of All Colors (Photos)

By

Most women have a few bras in their arsenals: a black bra, a t-shirt bra, maybe a push-up bra or strapless style, and always — always — a nude bra.

A nude bra is the most important one: It's the only one that can be worn with everything.

But what is a "nude" bra?

A nude shade for me is certainly much different than, say, a nude shade on Emma Stone or Rihanna.

Unfortunately, bras don’t come in light nude, olive-skin nude or dark-skin nude.

They come in one shade: caucasian. There’s no nude for the black or Hispanic woman. Only the white woman. Until now.

One very smart entrepreneur noticed this gaping hole in the market and set out to change it.

She founded her own lingerie company, Nubian Skin, which carries underwear, bras, hosiery and the like for women of all different skin tones, because everyone’s “nude” is different.

On the company’s blog, she wrote,

Despite the reality that women of color 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.

Nubian Skin is one of the first-ever high-end lingerie companies to market its products specifically to women of color.

The line will be available starting in October via the Nubian Skin site. Until then, you can read the site’s blog, which is maintained by the company’s founder.
