  • A Note on Our Bra Sizes

    We've received a lot of questions about what sizes we carry.  We are launching with size 30B up to 36DD/E.  We know this doesn't cover everyone, and we realise a plus size offering is so important, however we had to start somewhere.  
  • The Skin-tones: The Darker the "Berry"...

    Nubian Skin T-Shirt Bra and Brief in "Berry" It's about time you get to know our shades a bit better, so to kick off our four week count down: The first in our profile of Nubian Skin skin-tones is Berry, and you know what they say, "The darker the berry..."

  • Product Inspection - Hong Kong

    We went off to China last week to do the inspection of our stock before it's shipped out to England.  It was quite emotional to see all of our beautiful Nubian Skin bras in gorgeous brown tones.  It's hard to believe the dream of making bras for brown and black women is coming true!
  • Sun Care For Dark Skin

    Many women of colour are incredibly careful with how they treat their skin, however one area we tend to neglect is suncare.  Black women in particular are probably the worst culprits because of the misconception that we don't need it.  Now we're deep in summer holiday season, it's especially important to wear sunscreen as we run around in the sun.
  • Budget Manicure Review - Beautiful Nails Studio

    Fresh Manicure from Beautiful Nails Studio Bless them, they really do try, but this salon is more shabby than chic.
