Savage x Fenty Has Multiple Shades of Nude—Plus 7 More Brands With Range

Because one shade of beige definitely does not fit all

For many brands, nude lingerie comes in just one shade, which is a pinky-beige that only actually matches a small portion of skin tones. Like in the makeup world, this lack of diversity has become problematic, because, news flash: light beige is not the only skin colour out there.
