In October 2014, innovative lingerie and hosiery brand, Nubian Skin, launched its e-commerce store at


Redefining the meaning of ‘nude’, Nubian Skin goes against the grain to provide a range of lingerie and hosiery in a variety of shades for women with darker complexions.
The brand aims to empower and inspire women by alleviating the struggle women of colour face trying to find natural-tone undergarments. With a philosophy of ‘Empowering Women. Embracing our Colour’, Nubian Skin encourages women to embrace their skin through offering a broad range of skin-tones from the creamy ‘café au lait’ to the richest, darkest, ‘berry’. The brand offers bra sizes 30B – 36DD/E.

October’s issue, Issue 15 72M Magazine, is out on the 27th. Join us on ISSUU or Facebook to read it for free.
