Lingerie shopping is tricky even in the best circumstances. Choosing between fits, style types, fabrics and colors can be exhausting on its own. But for those of us who don’t fall into the relatively narrow range of Caucasian skin tones that most "flesh" or "nude"-toned lingerie is manufactured for, things can be even more complicated.
Seeing a huge need for skin-toned lingerie that could benefit all women of color, Ade Hassan founded Nubian Skin. The new ... Read More

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- menstruation can be the living worst. It’s smelly, messy, sticky, painful, and so many other unpleasant things. Imagine how much it would suck being on your period while living in a developing country. A lot of people all over the world don’t have the money to pay for pads, tampons, pain medication, what have you. Even if they did have the money, there’s nowhere nearby to get these items for ...

Are you as sick of the endless lingerie search, foraging for a larger cup size that is not boring and/or overpriced? I wear a bra size 34F and let me tell you, finding a bra that is comfortable, supportive, and cute all for an affordable price is a true pain. The boutique stores with small lacy bras for smaller sizes just don't offer the kind of support larger breasts need and the large chains like Victoria Secret and Macy's are always throwing diamonds and bows ...

The fight against unrealistic body expectations spawned from airbrushed models on billboards has been going strong for years. The “Dove Real Beauty” campaign showcases women of all shapes, colors, and sizes in their underwear, proving that real beauty comes in all forms. Yet as far as it goes, men haven’t been given the same real life role models. Instead, they’ve been blasted with ... Read More
When I first read that Hanes was asking women to reveal their underwear color, I was appalled. How dare the company invade women’s privacy like that? Turns out, it is a part of a new marketing campaign; surprisingly, a marketing campaign I see as pretty progressive and even feminist.
The company simply directs women to a microsite that allows them to post witty statements about their chosen underwear color of the day onto Twitter. Forbes’s ... Read More

Recently, the oldest bras in the world that we know of were found. The bras are from the 1400s and were discovered in an Austrian castle, The Daily News reports. So now, for the first time, we have proof that women in the Middle Ages were wearing bras. And not only that, but they were sexy ones decorated with lace. Lovely!
Before this discovery, it was thought that the bras that appeared in the 1800s were predated only by corsets (the modern bra was ... Read More
