You might know her as the Queen of Promotions and the Queen of Style, especially, in Poland. We would be in utter shock if you haven’t heard or at least came across her Instagram. With a following of more than 262K, this woman is surely someone to not miss! 

She is the epitome of style, elegance, and gracefulness. She poises with sophistication and moves like a Goddess. She exudes nothing but a classy woman who knows how to get what she wants. She writes eloquently, too. She is the definition of a high caliber woman who doesn’t let anyone get in her way. This is Monika Zakrent @25Moniq from Poland.

Monika graced our presence for quite sometime now, probably since we started this platform. We have always witnessed and been inspired by her sensual beauty and refined fashion sense, and it was only until this summer we decided to finally reach out to her, and do an interview with this woman who dresses not to impress but to dress for herself to feel empowered and beautiful.

Monika can be seen often lounging in her spacious and modern home in a beautiful intricate lace lingerie set paired with stockings and a garter or she could be seen out and about in the historical streets of Wroclaw, Poland, in heels and hosiery. 

In this interview with Monika, we discuss the intricacies revolving around the topics of hosiery and lingerie. This woman has impeccable taste when it comes to lingerie, hosiery, shoes and fashion. But not only that, you will also notice her wit by the words and quotes she uses throughout our interview together. 

Inspired by the past, especially 1950’s fashion, and fascinated by legends like Sofia Loren, Monica Bellucci, and Marilyn Monroe, Monika is headed in the right direction to become like one of them.

To learn more about the magnificent story and experience of Monika with hosiery and lingerie, keep on reading.

Interview with Queen of Style and Elegance @25Moniq

LECHERY: We see that you like hosiery and underwear, which prompted you to put stockings and underwear? Tell us more about it.

25Moniq: For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by women like Sofia Loren, Monica Bellucci, who presented a sensual, feminine style.  I was raised by women who enjoyed their femininity and emphasized it beautifully. They took care of the smallest detail, from underwear, clothing, hair, make-up and manicure. That's why clothing and underwear are so important to me, because everything starts with it. Dita von Teese said it very well

"Underwear was not created to seduce men, but to celebrate femininity."

I have noticed that some women lack courage, would like to wear sensual lingerie but are convinced that it is inappropriate for them, too frivolous or too complex to wear it. I want women to believe that beautiful lingerie is for us, for our better well-being, that we ourselves can enjoy small things, celebrate our bodies, taking care of them also by choosing the right outfits.  In my family, women dressed primarily for themselves, and it always impressed me, such "healthy egoism."

LECHERY: What does underwear mean to you?  Does it give you confidence?  Or maybe you wear it to make sex even more attractive?  How do you feel wearing underwear? 

25Moniq: Beautiful lingerie is a celebration of the female body. Nature has given us - women - unique shapes, beautiful.  I think that we should emphasize this difference from men with clothing. In addition, beautiful underwear improves the mood. Coco Chanel used to say:

"If you are sad, put on more lipstick and attack!"  and my motto is "If you are sad, wear beautiful underwear, drag your lips with lipstick, and reach for what you want!" 

It doesn't matter to me that maybe only (?) I'll see her.  Underwear is for me!  Is that not enough! 

Of course, that lingerie is also part of the erotic game, it is an aphrodisiac like food and drink, like a menu that we carefully select for a special dinner that we eat with a person special to us.  Michalina Wisłocka - Polish doctor, revolutionary in the field of sexuality, author of sex guides said: "Not only dissolute girls but also very decent wives should know all the secrets of seducing a man."

LECHERY: What is the perfect pair of stockings for you? 

25Moniq: The fact is that stockings - I love it, even on hot summer days.  Especially those fastened to the belt, of course, of good quality, classic belt with a minimum of six garters and metal frogs.  This is probably the most comfortable item of women's clothing I know.  If the belt is well chosen, it is one with the body.  The perfect stockings are nylons.  Traditional, sewn on Reading machines.  Recently I got a beautiful gift.  Original stockings from the 1950s.  This is my biggest underwear treasure.

LECHERY: We live in a society with a very double standard, when a man is topless, he is praised but when a woman - then she is hypersexualized and stigmatized by society.  Do you think we should fight this as a woman?

25Moniq: I think everyone has the right to their tastes and opinions.  I am also aware that many people do not accept my dress style.  I was dealing with hate over two years ago.  Criticism towards me and my relatives was expressed in a very aggressive way.  It took me a lot of time and energy to regain my balance.  Now, considering the situation in retrospect, I think that this moment from two years ago was a very beautiful gift of fate.  He made me aware that I didn't want to change.  I love myself just the way the other person doesn't like or understand, and that's not my problem anymore.  We have been fighting intolerance and double standards for centuries.  I would not start a global struggle, I think that we should start changing ourselves.  When we realize our own complexes, accept them and love ourselves and our bodies, we will love and accept and understand others.  Let's start with ourselves and change the world.

LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the hosiery and underwear industry in the future? 

25Moniq: I live more in the past. I love the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, I love the styles from the Mad Men series.  These were the times when women emphasized their outfit with roundness, they enjoyed being a woman.  Perhaps I live by the myth of those times, a bit like a fairy tale. Maybe I'm like the hero of Woody Allen's movie "Midnight in Paris", who considered the past years to be "Golden age" or better, more beautiful than the present.  I hope that since fashion returns, the one from the previous century will also come back, i.e. stockings, belts, maybe also corsets, about which Dita von Teese writes beautifully, claiming that thanks to them the female figure maintains the right attitude, we do not slouch, we move beautifully. I'm waiting for it.

LECHERY: What do you always wear to feel confident? And sexy, what is the advice for other women who fight self-confidence and image?

25 Moniq: I was helped by the advice of a personal stylist and her programs for women who teach how to accept their own body. It's difficult work and requires time, perseverance, patience and commitment.  But worth it.  The basis for me is always nice underwear.  She really improves the mood, works as stimulating as coffee, when I'm sleepy, I have a worse mood - it helps.  Seeing your own body in a beautiful setting works wonders. 

LECHERY: In today's world is a very hard time, what are you doing to be healthy?

25Moniq: First of all, I'm following the recommendations of specialists.  The Coronavirus pandemic surprised everyone, paralyzed the world, introduced chaos, fear for health, and life for myself and my loved ones.  Probably most of us in such situations realize who and what is most important to us.  This is a brutal, cruel lesson from fate.  I was very scared.  It was only a close person who made me realize that we must learn to live with it, accept and adapt to the new situation, listen to the recommendations and live in a new reality.
