Color us happy! In 2014, lingerie brand Nubian Skin made waves in the undergarment industry, making its debut with a full range of nude shades for women of color. But for all the brand’s inclusivity, its beautifully hued bras weren’t initially available in an extensive range of sizes, much to the dismay of us fuller-busted and/or -bodied gals. We wanted nudes, too!


Well, the pioneering brand heard our cry. On Thursday, Nubian Skin introduced a three-part-cup bra—a cup cut and sewn in three parts, to better support fuller breasts—available up to a 40G in its signature array of shades. In addition, it introduced a nonpadded underwire bra available up to a 40D and to DD in smaller sizes. Both are perfect for pairing with Nubian Skin’s array of panty styles, which are available up to an XXL. As Nubian Skin’s founder, Ade Hassan, explains in a press release:

We are very excited to be introducing this new range of bras and offering our customers more options in sizes. We’ve been paying close attention to our [customers’] needs. It is very important to be able to offer all women of colour our products, and we’re hoping that expanding our size range will take us one step closer!

Obviously, this is thrilling news for those of us who have struggled to find nude lingerie in less conventional sizes. We applaud Nubian Skin for its responsiveness to its customer base—it’s a move we’re sure will be mutually beneficial!

The Glow Up tip: Nubian Skin’s full product range—which includes bras, panties, hosiery, nightwear and even nude-toned leather shoes!—is priced from $15 to $130. You can explore it all at

(screw that troll)

Thank you for this post. I think I mostly wear things like the one on the right, when I think I need the support of things like the one on the left. 34DDD and a chronically aching back and shoulders are telling me so.
