About NEWDE

NEWDE is a lingerie line created to redefine the way women look and feel in their intimate apparel.  NEWDE which stems from “the New Nude” is for women with varying lifestyles but similar desires and expectations from fashion.  From varying body types to varying lifestyles all women share one common goal to feel sexy and empowered in the skin we are in. NEWDE allows women to feel fiercely feminine both inside and outside. This can be seen in our concept of “underwear as outerwear”. Our vision is to create apparel that will empower women to stop aspiring to femininity and actually experience it.   www.SHOPNEWDE.COM
