I love lingerie. It is one of my guilty pleasures. There is something about putting on a pretty bra set that empowers you. So I am excited about Nubian Skin, a new commerce site, that will be launching a lingerie line that truly addresses what nude means to women of color. For years, I have lamented about finding nude underwear that truly compliments the different shades of black women and our sisters of color. I have searched for a pretty brown bra and pantie only to be disappointed. The few brown bras I find are boring and too matronly for my taste. I stopped wearing stockings because I could never find a shade that flattered my skin tone.
In October Nubian Skin plans to launch this groundbreaking business. The bra sizes will range from 30B to 36E. I am excited and welcome the diversity in the lingerie world. I cross my fingers and hope the best for this new company.
