For the duration of my bra-wearing career, I have always associated ‘nude’ with my own skin tone. And for the most part, companies agreed with me. Being white, I’m constantly inundated by nude bras that are designed to blend in on my skin. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of brands that accommodate other skin tones’ nudes- and even these bras aren’t advertised as ‘nude’, but rather ‘cocoa’ or ‘tan’.
This article is to celebrate the few companies who cater to skin tones different than mine and to help those who are seeking a non-traditional ‘nude’ to find the right bra.

Nubian Skin is a special lingerie brand that caters specifically to women with darker skin tones. Their bras go from 30-36 back and go up to a DD cup.
As to why there isn’t already a nude for every skin tone in the lingerie industry is beyond me, but hopefully we won’t have to wait that much longer. With any luck, Nubian Skin won’t be the only company to produce a full range of non-nude nudes.
Did I leave any companies out? What do you think about the lack of multi-color nude bras? Tell me about it down below!
Until next time,
