This Lingerie Brand Will Change The Way You Think Of 'Nude' Forever

Why hasn't anyone thought of this earlier?

If we asked you to identify the nude color, which one would you choose?

Most people would probably choose the first option, but technically, we'd be asking a trick question.

All of these colors can be characterized as nude and the founder Nubian Skin, who according to BuzzFeed goes unnamed, wants to drive that point home. She's established a brand of lingerie and hosiery for women of all colors, so that everyone has "a nude."

According to the Nubian Skin founder, a nude bra or skin-tone tights are the basics of every woman's wardrobe. "But my nude isn't the nude I see in shops," she writes on her blog.

Striving to redefine our perception of nude, which is often based on the Caucasian skin shade, Nubian Skin creates bras, panties, tights and hold-ups in four different skin-tones.

"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," she says on the website

She adds that it's truly an uphill battle but every revolution starts somewhere and turns to the makeup industry which started revolutionizing diversity in beauty products back in 1973.

The line features four skin-tones two of which, Berry and Cinnamon (below), are already revealed.

Sizes start at 30B and go up to 36DD/E but says the company says they will add more in time.

The line launches at the beginning of October. Nubian Skin seeks to empower women and inspire them to embrace their skin color.
