Ugh, the Leggs shade of pantyhose that is nude on me is called “Suntan”.

Agreed, I am not African American but I have naturally tanned skin so most “Nudes” are not nude at all on me!

I have the same rant when it comes to underwear and bras.

I feel you on this for sure. I got really frustrated when I was looking for a lace gown with a “nude” underlay. I think the ones for white skin are SO pretty. The effect of it looking like its just lace and nothing else is stunning. But no such luck for us chocolate folk!

Wow, I never even though about this until now. That must be extremely frustrating!!

If it makes you feel better, I am so white/pale that nude shoes are like bandaid colour on me and looks very strange as well. (Not the same, I know)

True, everyone’s “nude” is a different color!

Think everyone thinks “nude” is something different. Like “nude” stockings are really all different shades of  light beige to dark tan. I would describe the shoes you posted as camel colored. I work in retail those are the colors we go by but everyone is different.

I get it, but it’s the name of a specific color (pinkish or beige), I don’t think it’s meant to mean “everybody’s skin color”. like when you say “champagne” but actual champagne is usually more golden/yellow, if you know what i mean

 

if I were you, I’d ask to see “cognac” pumps. to me that’s the closest to what you posted.
