Good afternoon LECHERY Ladies! This day is such a momentous day for us women. It marks the day of us women celebrating the social, economic, political, and cultural achievements that we have made throughout history since 1911. We would like to wish you all a Happy International Women’s Day and let you know that we are strong, intelligent, beautiful, and powerful women who play such a vital role in society. Without us, our world will be empty. Men, if you’re reading this, take care of your women - treat her right, respect her, and allow her to be who she wants to be. Never stop dreaming ladies, we were put on this earth for a reason, let’s make the most out of it!
To celebrate this special day, we would like to share with you an interview we had with the stunning and courageous @hayley.dynamo. Hayley is an amazing example of a strong and confident woman who doesn’t let anyone get in her way. She is a professional circus performer based in Chicago, a teacher, and a model. In this interview with Hayley, we talk about her love for lingerie and how lingerie has been one of her means to feel empowered as a performer and a fitness professional. She also talks about how training plays a significant role in her day to day life and tells us how wearing lingerie allows her to share all her hard work. To learn more about the lingerie advice, body confidence, and many more Hayley gives us, tune in! xx
Interview with the talented circus performer @hayley.dynamo
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?
HAYLEY: Hi, I'm Hayley! I'm a professional circus performer currently based in Chicago, my stage name is Hayley Dynamo. I perform for both public and private events throughout the Midwest and teach circus, as well as dabbling in modeling and other performing arts. The majority of my time is spent on stage or training.
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.
HAYLEY: As an independent performer I have to be very aware of fashion trends for costuming purposes, and often find that my best costumes are made up of lingerie pieces. Over the past few years this has peaked my interest in how my use of lingerie in the public eye can empower me as a performer and fitness professional.
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?
HAYLEY: I spend ALL of my time training and working with my body and lingerie is an amazing way to proudly show off my hard work! My body is my biggest tool and I feel empowered by my costuming choices to show off a bit.
LECHERY: What is the perfect set of lingerie for you? And which brands would you recommend?
HAYLEY: I personally frequently shop for pieces that are made for movement or for non-bedroom wear. They're loosely "lingerie" but also rave wear and dance pole wear. My current favorite is iHeartRaves. I usually customize the pieces to fit my needs as a performer and athlete.
LECHERY: What is a bad experience you've had with a lingerie set? And what brands would you avoid buying from?
HAYLEY: Most of my bad experiences have just been with sets that aren't made for women with MUSCLES. Like come on y'all, let's move past the twig motif. Strong is beautiful!
LECHERY: What is your main advice to women who struggle with confidence and body image?
HAYLEY: If your body does what you need it to do to keep YOU happy, it is perfect. It is yours first and foremost.
LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the lingerie industry in the future?
HAYLEY: I would love to see more athleisure style lingerie out there in the future, definitely not workout wear, but still inspired by the comfort and functionality of that style.
LECHERY: What is one lingerie piece that every girl should have in their closet?
HAYLEY: Everyone should have a comfy bodysuit! Perfect for layering at home or out and about.
LECHERY: What is one thing you would always wear that would make you feel much more confident and sexy?
HAYLEY: I ditched conventional bras years ago for stretchy bralettes and they're my jam.
LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:
HAYLEY: Fun, functional, and empowering!
