Good morning LECHERY LADIES! Happy Saturday, we hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their weekend so far. It’s actually about to snow in NYC today and that means, STAY AT HOME. *Laughs* With that being said, today we have the pleasure to share with you our next LECHERY interview with Lexy of @lexyreptilesxoxo. Lexy is 21 years old and works in the reptile and animal industry. During her spare time, she enjoys doing photo shoots with her photographer @Aries_optics in lingerie AND animals. How amazing is that!? We were in awe, when we saw the amazing shoots she has had with different types of animals and we told ourselves that we had to interview this girl! With that being said, Lexy shares with us how she started doing lingerie shoots with animals, how she became comfortable with them, her hopes for the lingerie industry, and many more.
Interview with the fierce and stunning animal lover @lexyreptiles
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! You're such a confident and inspiring woman! Let’s first start off by telling us a little bit more about yourself. What do you do?
LEXY: My name is Lexy and I am currently 21 years old working in the reptile and animal industry. While working full time in this industry, I also, in my free time, enjoy doing photo shoots with aries optics with my animals. I soon hope that modeling in lingerie will not only change everyone’s views on women loving and showing off their bodies but also showing people how delicate reptiles can be.
LECHERY: We see that you're into reptiles/exotic animals/and also doing photoshoots with them in lingerie, when did you start getting into this type of shoot? Tell us more about it!
LEXY: What really got me started on modeling with animals was actually someone from my past. I didn’t have too much experience but Tony who is a reptile and exotic animal breeder @ace_ventura_petdetective really helped me see passed a huge Boa and learn to move with the snake. After my first photo shoot with huge exotic animals, I got addicted. I’ve loved reptiles for years and grew up around them. Going to shows I noticed that people were drawn to others at conventions with good looks and carrying reptiles. Once I picked up on what people liked, it was an uphill from there on out. I started at KBK reptiles using @Billyambrose animals to model with. We started using my nails as color reference to the ball pythons. It shortly after turned to lingerie and reptiles. I learned that it’s important to love your body and be confident in anything you wear. I started using what I was comfortable with which was reptiles of all types and once I could put them into my lingerie photos it helped me be more comfortable not only showing my body but my focus was on the animals and how to get they’re angles as well.
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?
LEXY: I get this question a lot. I feel like women who embrace lingerie get shame towards them. I believe we should embrace women who are confident and comfortable enough to wear lingerie all the time and be able to post it on any social media platform. I know if I’m not feeling confident and I put on a nice outfit I instantly feel a huge confidence boost.
LECHERY: What is the perfect set of lingerie for you? And which brands would you recommend?
LEXY: The perfect set I’d have to say is the teddy collection from Victoria’s Secret. I know that this brand comes off as pricey to most, but I find it with such amazing quality. In most of my Instagram posts, I would actually be wearing Victoria’s Secret. You’d think they’d sponsor me by now. *Laughs*
LECHERY: What is a bad experience you've had with a lingerie set? And what brands would you avoid buying from?
LEXY: I think my worst experience was making the mistake of buying lingerie off the wish apps. Most of these apps I’ve learned are stealing photos and using them to miss sell items. I’ve ordered beautiful things and received garbage. I’d avoid those apps like the plague!
LECHERY: What is your main advice to women who struggle with confidence and body image?
LEXY: My main advice to those who struggle is to find what you love doing and do it damn good. I found modeling with animals is what made me so happy that I turned it into my part time job. If you like modeling with your whole body covered do it, if you like modeling nude do it. You can’t let others opinions make who you are.
LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the lingerie industry in the future?
LEXY: My hope is not only to start seeing reptiles make appearances in lingerie shoots but for me to be in them as well and teach people how fragile they are.
LECHERY: What is one lingerie piece that every girl should have in their closet?
LEXY: I think one piece everyone needs is a full set. I'm talking bra, panties, and stockings with some fire heels to make that booty pop!
LECHERY: What is one thing you would always wear that would make you feel much more confident and sexy?
LEXY: One thing you can always know I’m wearing is a super sexy thong. You never know what you're going to get some sexy time.
LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:
LEXY: Sexy, confidence, and luxury.
