Good morning LECHERY ladies! How are we all doing today? We were able get over another week of social distancing - have you? At this time, it is important and we urge you ladies (and men) to really stay at home. This will not only flatten the curve and save people but will get us back to the life we were used to sooner! With that said, we wanted to spread love and discuss lingerie with you as we share an interview we had with Fionna @fionnac.
Fionna is a New York City based (yay) fashion and lifestyle creator who does freelance work. She describes living in New York as something she has a ‘love/hate relationship’ with because it is a tough city. But, it is the hustle, the melting pot of cultures, and the many things you can do here that makes her love it. In this interview with Fionna, we discuss her lingerie experience, how she feels when she wears lingerie, and some of her favorite brands she loves to wear. To learn more about this beautiful and elegant lady, continue on reading! Happy Friday ladies!
Interview with the elegant and creative content creator @fionnac
LECHERY: First of all, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to interview you! It is such a pleasure to have you here with us (virtually) of course haha! Let’s first start off by telling us a little bit more about yourself. What do you do?
FIONNA: I'm a fashion and lifestyle content creator and I'm currently freelancing here and there!
LECHERY: Based from your profile, we assume that you’re based in New York (funny enough, we’re also from New York *laughs*), what sets New York apart from all the other cities you’ve visited?
FIONNA: Yes, I am actually based in NY! I have a love/hate relationship with this city because it's a tough city for sure. It isn't for everyone but it's a unique place. There are so many things to see and do, so much to experience. I love how there's so many different cultures and just lots to learn from as well.
LECHERY: We see that you're into fashion and lingerie, what got you into posting fashion and lingerie? Is that your way of practicing self-care? Tell us more about it.
FIONNA: I've always been into fashion and posting lingerie here and there. Some people may find that to be exposing too much but I feel like it's a delicate and beautiful thing. Lingerie is very pretty to look at too.
LECHERY: What does lingerie mean to you? Does it give you confidence? Or is it just something you wear to give an added extra sex appeal? How do you feel when wearing lingerie?
FIONNA: I think lingerie is great for adding sex appeal or self confidence. I really believe that what you wear can affect your mood so if you want to feel a certain way, dressing a certain way can definitely help with that.
LECHERY: What is the perfect set of lingerie for you? And which brands would you recommend?
FIONNA: I love a bra that has a bit of push up since I am on the smaller chest side. Something with lace is probably my favorite but it has to be the pretty kind of lace. Not the grandma kind of lace, if you know what I mean. Some brands I love to wear are Victoria's Secret (even though their brand is problematic so I refrain from shopping there now), Agent Provocateur, True & co., Savage X Fenty, etc.
LECHERY: What is a bad experience you've had with a lingerie set? And what brands would you avoid buying from?
FIONNA: The only bad experience I can remember is when they're really uncomfortable. Some bras can be poking into me with their wires and that's when it's the worst for me. Comfort is key!
LECHERY: What is your main advice to women who struggle with confidence and body image?
FIONNA: I think every women struggles with confidence and body image, especially in this era of social media. I think it's important to remember that what you see online isn't always real. Body trends will always change and there is always someone out there that actually love the way you look even if you don't think there is.
LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the lingerie industry in the future?
FIONNA: I'm not exactly sure about this since I haven't given it much thought but I think Rihanna is doing a great job with Savage X Fenty. She's being more inclusive and affordable which is nice since I do believe lingerie is a luxury.
LECHERY: What is one lingerie piece that every girl should have in their closet?
FIONNA: A really good black bra and panty set. With lace of course! It's like the LBD of lingerie.
LECHERY: What is one thing you would always wear that would make you feel much more confident and sexy?
FIONNA: My favorite set because I've finally found one that's comfortable and complements my body.
LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:
FIONNA: Sexy, empowering, delicate.
