Good afternoon everyone, today we have another interview featuring a stunning and gorgeous woman, Miranda Alece. 

Mandie graced our presence after having to stumble upon her page on Instagram. Little did we know, back when we first approached her, she was also a fellow New Yorker. Mandie has relocated and moved to Los Angeles, California. 

Mandie is a perfect example that you can be both professional and sensual at the same time. From being a former teacher to now an actress and model, this woman is continuing to make great strides in the fashion and performing industry.

In this interview with Mandie, we discuss what jump-started her career as a model, her views on lingerie as an item that makes her feel sexy and empowered, her favorite pair of lingerie sets, and how we as a society have made significant progress when it comes to combating double standards.

A key part about this interview is how Mandie highlighted the importance of movements such as the free nipple movement and women in the medical field  posting pictures of themselves in swimsuits. By initiating movements similar to these, we as a society can challenge the status-quo and remove the stigmas associated with wearing lingerie/hosiery online. 

To learn more about this gorgeous woman and her strong views on body-confidence, lingerie, and hosiery, keep on reading! 

Interview with the beautiful Goddess @Mandie_Alece

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? 

MANDIE: So nice to speak with you all virtually! I am a former teacher, turned actress and model.

LECHERY: We see that you're into modeling and lingerie, what got you into modeling and also lingerie? Tell us more about it.

MANDIE: What got me into modeling is I always had a big imagination and enjoyed playing different characters. In modeling, a company or brand always wants a certain mood and scenario to come to life, so it's fun for me to be able to dress up and play a part for the day. Photoshoots are so much fun because you get to work with many different artists and creators who have a unique vision that you can help bring to life. Lingerie is just amazing! Whenever I wear lingerie I feel sexy and confident. There are also so many beautiful styles that can range from corsets and bustiers to teddies and lace sets. I own all of these styles.

LECHERY: As a woman, 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?

MANDIE: Lingerie definitely makes me feel sexy and empowered. When wearing lingerie I feel feminine and desirable. It does add extra sex appeal, but I don't wear it only for that reason. My reasons vary depending on my mood.

LECHERY: What is the perfect pair of hosiery for you? Or lingerie, if you don't wear hosiery. 

MANDIE: I love lacey or silky lingerie!

LECHERY: As wearing hosiery and lingerie can be seen by the wider-community to be vulgar, how do you react to the negativity? 

MANDIE: I don't react to it, but I just know it is there. I respect others beliefs and live my life based on what I think and feel works for me.

LECHERY: We live in a very double standard society, when a man is topless, it is normalized and accepted, but for a woman, she’s hypersexualized and stigmatized. As women, how do you think we should combat this? 

MANDIE: I think we are starting to see some changes with double standards such as the free the nipple movement, and more recently women in the medical field were posting pictures in swimsuits to show that you can be both sexy and professional. It is my hope that we see more trends like this where women stand-up and challenge the status-quo.

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

MANDIE: Virtual try-ons for different body types. Most lingerie models have hour-glass figures. It would be nice to see what the lingerie might look like in your size and body type.

LECHERY: What is one thing you would always wear that would make you feel much more confident and sexy? What is your advice to other women who struggle with confidence and body-image? 

MANDIE: High heels make me feel more confident and sexy because they elongate the legs and can enhance an outfit. My advice to those who struggle with confidence and body-image is there is only one you, you are unique, so love and celebrate your individual beauty! Find your best inner and outer qualities and enhance them. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes,  so always remember that no matter what size you are that you are beautiful!

LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:

MANDIE: sexy, empowerment, flirty

LECHERY: It is a really tough time in today's world with the whole COVID-19 pandemic going on, what have you been doing to keep yourself busy and healthy? 

MANDIE: My best friend and I workout together via Zoom a few times per week, which makes me feel like I still have a bit of a social life. My husband and I also live next to a park, so we like to walk around it to get some exercise. Since NYC has started to slowly re-open, I have started to do a few freelance modeling jobs wearing a mask and social-distancing of course. It is my hope that we find a remedy to this situation sometime in the very near future!
