The idea that nude is a word used to describe a specific color is a bit perplexing because, ICYMI, the skin tone spectrum varies drastically.

The brand ships worldwide and says that American orders should be delivered within one to two working days (though customs can mess that timeline up). If you’d like to avoid any overseas hassle, good news: the brand’s T-shirt and strapless bras, as well as a thong and brief, are now available stateside at Nordstrom.
