Because NUDE does NOT fit all!
“My nude isn’t the nude I see in shops. Despite the reality that women of color have the same needs as all women when it comes to lingerie and hosiery, the industry simply doesn’t cater to us. So, I thought, it’s time to rethink the definition of nude.” Ade Hassan
Especially when it comes to searching for your basic underpinnings and tights! I mean, for those instances where your skin tone is the perfect layering piece, finding hues darker than a beige nude has been a challenge! HOWEVER, there is an amazing UK brand out to change things and to kick it off, Nubian Skin has stepped into this market to supply the demand! BUT, their range did not include plus until now! Starting out in hosiery, Nubian Skin has launched Nubian Skin’s 15 Denier Curve range, available in sizes XL, 2XL and 3XL in four signature colors!
These colors have such cute names too, like Berry, Cinnamon, Caramel and Café au Lait. The range utilizes XCEPTIONELLE technology by LYCRA® to accommodate volume, whether curvy, plus, and/or tall, and even has an anti-chafing panel, an anti-roll waistband and reinforced toe!
Founder, Ade Hassan shares that “Nubian Skin has always been about increasing inclusivity, and we are incredibly pleased that this is another way that we can do that for our customers.”
I am here for this!
Take a peek at the range, as shown on these four models of varying hues! I hardly ever rock a “nude” pair of tights, but knowing this is an option for me now? I am here to give a few a whirl! But take a peek:
“The fact that I can wear my own skin color tights that fit perfectly is a bonus for me! Being larger, tights that fit perfectly and comfortably is almost impossible to find, Nubian Skin have the BEST tights out there! Please bring on the Curve bras and panties!” Chanel rocking the Berry Hue
“Finding nude color tights for my skin tone has always been a challenge especially in the UK. However, seeking my shade in my size proved harder still until I had tried the Nubian Skin hosiery – the quality is brilliant, super stretchy and smooth on the skin. I’m very impressed and excited to see the extent of the range.” Michelle playing the Cinnamon Hue
“Tights is something I have always found hard to find, especially the one that matches my skin tone. When Ade sent me a pair to try I was surprised by the overall look it gave me. I have varicose veins which makes me want to cover my legs at all times but now finally I have found tights that look natural on me and make me feel super sexy!! Thank you Ade for giving women like me these :)“ Bishamber stunting in Café au Lait
How awesome is this option? I am really happy to see these options and a range that caters to the varying shades of “nude” and lets us play in them!

And for those of you asking and demanding their bra and panty range to be accessible in plus? Have I got some tea for you! I did push back and ask them when their main range would be available in plus and their marketing department shared this:
Our first project is developing the cup sizes to offer a more comprehensive range – which we hope will be ready for summer! We will be going up to a G-cup!
!!!!!! How exciting!!!!
I cannot wait for this!
What do you think about this collection? Is this something that you could see yourself rocking?
