Good afternoon LECHERY ladies! Happy Sunday! It’s a little gloomy here in NYC today; however, we wanted to bring you happiness and smiles to your day. We will be posting an exciting interview we had with @maddiepocks in our next few posts - she is a living Barbie and one who has had years of experience in lingerie modeling and entertainment.
From looking at her social media, it is no doubt that Maddie Pocks has some great style and beautiful lingerie. When Maddie isn’t creating content she works as an entertainment host, producer, and artist. We got the chance to discuss some of her best lingerie picks, her tips on self confidence, and why she believes lingerie is empowering.
Interview with the living stunning Barbie doll @maddiepocks
LECHERY: It’s clear you are into lingerie. What got you into posting lingerie? Is that your way of practicing self-care? Tell us more about it.
MADDIE: I love taking photos and collecting beautiful pieces so it feels natural posting in lingerie. It is actually surprising how many women message me asking where I got certain sets. And yes, being in lingerie makes me feel confident and excited so I guess you could say that is self care!
LECHERY: What does lingerie mean to you? Does it give you confidence? How do you feel when wearing lingerie?
MADDIE: I think all lingerie can make anyone feel confident. There are different pieces that make me feel sexier, more feminine, or provocative – depending on the fit, style, or fabric. It can really transform the way a women’s figure looks and make her feel powerful or just feel beautiful in her own way. I definitely feel all of those things while wearing it.
LECHERY: What is the perfect set of lingerie for you? And which brands would you recommend?
MADDIE: A nice push-up bra and a tight fitting garter belt… or a corset. Pair that with a bit of flare around the derriere – *LAUGH OUT LOUD*. So Flattering! Agent Provocateur, Cloud Blvd, Sugar Thrillz, Hustler Store, Lounge Underwear, Sugar Lace, Trashy Lingerie, For Love and Lemons, Dita Von Tees’s line, Honey Birdette…I could go on and On!
LECHERY: What is a bad experience you’ve had with a lingerie set? And what brands would you avoid buying from?
MADDIE: Buying sets too small and they rip on the first try! Haha. I order a lot online because there are so many beautiful overseas brands I adore but I definitely recommend going into the store and trying it on or live chatting their help forum to explain your body type.
LECHERY: What is your main advice to women who struggle with confidence and body image?
MADDIE: Find out what works for your body mentally and physically. I’m not someone who can go to the gym 5 hours a day. I like to enjoy Mcdonalds and have days off –but I can’t eat whatever I want all of the time. One tidbit of advice from Dita Von Teese I love is to look up to people who share the same body type. I tend to follow women on social media with similar “assets” to me so that I can see how certain clothing would fit and get inspiration for workouts and eating well.
LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the lingerie industry in the future?
MADDIE: I like how the industry now is showing different body types so I would like to see more of that. Sometimes it’s hard to find your size online when they display just a very petite model and plus size – both are beautiful body types but it would be great to see say, 5 different body types so people don’t order the wrong sizes.
Oh, and I’d love to see some weird futuristic lingerie where it’s like a hologram on your body – maybe one day! Lol.
LECHERY: What is one lingerie piece that every girl should have in their closet?
MADDIE: It’s a tie. A cute babydoll slip! It’s great for lounging around in, for sleeping, or if you’re dressing up for someone. Or … a great corset. Sometimes it’s nice to just put one on even if it’s under your clothing and no one knows! It’s great for your posture too!
LECHERY: What is one thing you love to wear that makes you feel more confident and sexy?
MADDIE: A fit and flare babydoll dress!
LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:
MADDIE: Sexy, Liberating, Playful
LECHERY: Will you be posting more or less lingerie when the COVID-19 lock down is over?
MADDIE: I think about the same. What I’m actually looking forward to is being able to go to a fabric store and start trying to create my own lingerie!
