When it comes to nude lingerie and hosiery, we tend to only see fleshy, paler tones that certainly don’t represent women of color. That’s where U.K.-based Nubian Skin comes in, an innovative lingerie and hosiery company that developed products for women of color in all shades and sizes, and finally hit U.S. stores last July. Offering a range of “nude” shades, the brand’s bras, underwear, and tights are made to match every customer’s skin tone in colors such as “Café au Lait” and “Caramel.”
The brand has just launched its newest endeavor: plus-size tights. Curve, their new plus-size hosiery line, features tights in four shades of nude designed to match the skin tone of the wearer. The line not only comes in sizes up to 3XL, but it uses special technology to accommodate volume, as well as boasting an anti-roll waistband, an anti-chafing panel, and reinforced toes.
What’s next for the brand? A spokesperson told Refinery29, “We're working on expanding our cup sizes, so that's the next focus area for us.”
