IN PICTURES: Nude Underwear For Beautiful Brown Skin

Thank you, Gugu Intimates, thank you!


For the first time ever, we can now get underwear that matches our skin tone in South Africa, thanks to Gugu Nkabinde.

She is the founder of Gugu Intimates -- a range of skin-toned matched undergarments for black women that officially hit the market earlier this year. The range comes in five shades of beautiful brown.

"If we're now able to match our foundation to our skin tones; why haven't we been able to do the same with our underwear?" she asked Women24.

This is why Nkabinde is Oour Woman Crush Wednesday.
