The London-based innerwear brand Nubian Skin has come up with an exciting range of natural coloured lingerie for women with darker skin tones.

Based in different shades of nude colour, the range includes plain and lace crafted T-shirt, strapless and convertible bras, thongs, knickers and hosiery items in introductory sizes ranging from 30B to 36E to flatter all shapes and skin tones.

The collection’s darkest shade is termed as Berry, the medium-dark shade is Cinnamon, which is described as “a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy" in the company’s blog, and the third medium-light shade is named as Caramel.

According to a blog post on the label’s website, the line’s inspiration actually stemmed from the unavailability of proper skin toned lingerie in the market, especially for those with darker skin tones.

The writer describes in the blog- “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.”

“So for you beautiful black and brown women, next time you need a nude pair of hold-ups or maybe a nude strapless bra to go under than stunning white halter dress, we’re only a few clicks away. Nubian Skin. A Different Kind of Nude,” adds the blogger who also is the founder of the firm.

The debut collection, which will also be created in plus sizes in future, is due to be available for purchase on the innerwear maker’s website by early October, 2014.

The Nubian Skin brand was founded in 2013. (PB)
