About Us


OUR PURPOSE is to redefine NUDE 

"Necessity is the mother of invention" 
~ Plato 

I'm an actor and in 2019 I asked the wardrobe designer for Shape wear to support my 4 month post pregnancy body.

But here in Australia, we couldn’t easily buy shape wear in my skin tone. So I started the process of sourcing it myself.

Three years later, after many samples, colour swatches and rigorous market testing, I finally developed a garment that could support and represent women of colour.   

And the rest is history. 

The rest is NYOOD. 

“ I am a woman of colour, an actor and a mother. 

I founded NYOOD because I wanted to control the way I looked when I need to take charge on screen. 

I love my ever changing, soft body and welcome my natural curves. 

This shapewear is here if and when you need it. 

You now have the choice. And that's all that matters.”
