In my opinion, nothing is more irritating than looking for some nude lingerie and seeing nothing in your shade. Bras, panties, hosiery, you name it. I know I'm not the only one who's looked at the selections at some of the most popular department stores, and have quietly asked under my breath, "Nude to WHO?"


Beautiful brown skin deserves to have lingerie, too.

With the growing number of Black-owned and women-owned businesses, there are more opportunities than ever working to redefine and reshape the narrative of what "nude" is in the fashion and beauty industry. We as Black girls want flesh-toned undergarments too, and if you need some help with where to shop, I've got five brands you should check out ASAP.

1. Nubian Skin

Nubian Skin

We all remember when Nubian Skin made their viral debut, but one of my favorite things about this brand is that they make offerings for up to G-cup bra sizes, and briefs up to size 2XL. They've got four skin tones that you can choose from, plus a nice guide that'll help you get started with choosing your perfect tone.
