Nubian Skin - A different kind of nude


Okay so a few days ago I was having a meeting of minds about relevant topics for my upcoming posts on BlackCleopatra. During that conversation, the name 'Nubian Skin' was mentioned! Hold on one little second. Nubian what? What is that? So apparently there is a company based in the UK that manufactures lingerie and hosiery for darker skinned women!  Am I the only person on the planet that didn't know this?!

Looking into it further, it turns out that this amazing company which was established in October 2014 by Ade Hassan, is doing it's thing in the fashion industry to bring us darker skinned sisters a different kind of nude. Gone are the days where nude underwear only meant that pale, pinkish, creamy toned underwear, now nude also means 'berry, cinnamon, cafe au lait and caramel,' thanks to the good people over at Nubian Skin. Cheers guys!

To be honest, as much as I am really excited about the prospect of wearing cinnamon underwear (I think I would be cinnamon), it's the hosiery that really puts a smile on my face.  No more faffing around at Superdrugs trying desperately to find the right/closest colour of 'tan' to my skin tone (impossible by the way). No more being forced to wear black tights when what I really feel like wearing is my pencil skirt with a pair of (my) flesh coloured tights (London is cold) and a nice pair of heels.

Bra sizes currently range  between: 30A - 40DD.  Briefs are available in S, M, L and XL.

It's no Primark, and so prices are not cheap, but considering that they are a new company and not (yet) a major chain, I think that their prices are affordable. You can look to pay about £39 for a classic lace push-up bra, and £29 for their 'Essential T-Shirt Bra'. Briefs currently go for £14 whilst a pair of tights will set you back around £8.50. 

I believe that they do ship internationally, but you can visit their website for their full catalogue, price list and shipping & delivery policy at: www.nubianskin.com

Hooray for Nubian Skin I say. I look forward to making my first purchase.  Rest assured that when I do, I'll be back here to let you guys know how it went.

Thanks for reading, and stay confident and beautiful.
