5 Lingerie Basics you need in your Wardrobe

5 Lingerie Basics you need in your Wardrobe

At Nubian Skin, we understand how frustrating it is when you can't find the perfect fitting bra or favourite shape seamless panties in your perfect nude, to layer under that gorgeous dress you so desperately want to wear for an event. Or for the cute top that you bought with cut-outs or sheer material that you were so sure your black underwear would look fine under when you tried it on in the store.

When Ade launched Nubian Skin in 2014, her purpose was to eliminate that problem by providing Women of Color with the undergarments needed to make that outfit work seamlessly, taking out the worry or stress of how to style those 'harder to style' pieces, and how to style anything for that matter.

We are going to highlight the 5 key pieces that you NEED in your wardrobe, to save ever getting stuck again.

1. The Naked Full Slip - An essential piece for every woman's wardrobe, Nubian Skin's Naked Full Slip is perfect under any sheer dress or to create the perfect silhouette.

It features adjustable shoulder straps, a deep scoop front neck and gold hardware details.
