Nubian Skin Redefines “nude”

Nubian Skin launches with a carefully edited collection of lingerie and hosiery to provide for the Essential underwear needs of women of colour. Headquartered in London, Nubian Skin delivers worldwide and looks forward to growing the company’s offering and expanding its reach. Nubian Skin was founded by Ade Hassan who was frustrated by the lack of skin-tone options to go with her ever-expanding wardrobe. Ade decided it was time for ‘a different kind of nude’.

“My nude isn’t the nude I see in shops. Despite the reality that women of colour 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.” With the aim of redefining the meaning of ‘nude’, Nubian Skin has created a range of lingerie and hosiery in a variety of shades for women with darker complexions. From the creamy ‘Café au Lait’ to the gorgeously rich ‘Berry’ our carefully selected and lovingly created range of lingerie and hosiery aims to alleviate the struggle many women face trying to find natural-tone undergarments.


Embracing our ‘Colour’, we want to encourage women of all ethnicities to feel included, appreciated and most of all sexy, in lingerie especially tailored for them. As a fleeting idea borne out of sheer frustration with the current lingerie market, founder Ade Hassan designed this capsule collection with the young, modern women of colour in mind. Available exclusively online, our range features irresistible fabrics and feminine designs in sizes 30B – 36DD and hosiery in sizes in S – XL. Prices start at just £8.00.
