When Ade Hassan launched the lingerie brand Nubian Skin back in 2014, she answered the long-held prayers of women of colour who were tired of the limited “nude” underwear options on offer. Deciding that it was high time for “a different kind of nude,” Hassan debuted a line of bras, panties, and hosiery available in four different shades geared toward the darker-skinned women of the world. Based in London, the brand quickly blew up in the U.K. and soon garnered lots of attention overseas, where American customers often waited up to three weeks to receive their orders.
But U.S. residents can finally say goodbye to that long wait period, as Nordstrom has just begun selling two different bra styles, mid-rise briefs, and a seamless thong, with lots more on the horizon. It’s safe to say these pieces will be a game changer for any women of colour who love a sheer look or an all-white outfit.
