Happy Monday everyone! We hope you’re starting this week stronger than you planned! Exciting things coming up as we approach October. We restructured and reformatted our website to better accommodate your needs when it comes to reading our articles and interviews!
Also, we can’t believe it’s officially Fall weather here in New York City! It’s been pretty cool lately, the other day, it almost seemed like it was winter! 40 degrees! That’s crazy during this time of the year! That being said, we think it’s the perfect time to really start investing in some tights to keep you warm this Fall/Winter season!
This leads us to our interview for the day with the Pantyhose Queen Madalynn Raye @Ms.MadalynnRaye. Madalynn Raye graced our presence for quite a while now after having to start a hosiery page on Instagram and seeing her on our explore page. We were fascinated by this woman in terms of how bold and confident she is when it comes to posting content in sheer nylons!
Madalynn Rae is a fetish model, actress, and producer. The start of her modeling career dates back in 2006 in which she started her own production in 2015. Madalynn Rae is truly a pioneer when it comes to this industry.
This lady does not only have values that align with ours, but she is the epitome of unabashed femininity. When you read our interview together, she is a prime example of a high-caliber woman who is filled with wit, intelligence, and empathy.
In this interview with Madalynn Raye, we talk about her deep passion for pantyhose and lingerie, how she has over 110 pairs of hose hiding in various boxes and drawers, and why pantyhose, over the years, played a significant role in her daily life.
To learn more about this woman, keep on reading!
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?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I am a fetish model, actress, and producer. I create my own original content and produce bespoke video and images for customers. I have been a model since 2006, and then began production on my own in 2015.
LECHERY: We see that you're into hosiery and lingerie, what got you into posting hosiery and lingerie? Tell us more about it.
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I am always very honest about this, but with my line of work, there was a way to monetize off of it by selling the worn hose, or photo sets and video, it just became second nature to always have a pair of pantyhose on so I could always be ready for the next sale. But now? I wear them for fun AND work. I probably have over 110 pairs of hose squirreled away in various boxes and drawers.
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?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I LOVE lingerie, but I really don't utilize that much unless there's a special occasion in my personal life or for a custom video/photo set.
LECHERY: What is the perfect pair of hosiery for you?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: The perfect pair of hose, it's a tie between the ORIGINAL blend used in the Platino Cleancut 15s, or Pierre Mantoux Eclatant pantyhose. The platinos were so thin, and oil slick shiny and the Pierre Mantoux hose were thick, shimmery and lasted FOREVER. I made a pair last almost TWO years while wearing them a few times a month.
LECHERY: As wearing hosiery and lingerie can be seen by the wider-community to be vulgar, how do you react to the negativity?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I don't really get any negativity. I have a strong enough sense of self and confidence people don't question me or my decisions with most things. Except for my Grandmother... She's the only one that asks questions and critiques me, haha.
LECHERY: We live in a very double standard society, when a man is topless, he is then praised, but for a woman, she’s hypersexualized and stigmatized. As women, how do you think we should combat this?
MADALYNN RAYE: In my experience I've never seen or heard of a man "praised" for being topless, we just don't bat an eye at it. It's been normalized. As for women and being topless; I think we're in a transition period of that state of mind. Humans are normalizing it slowly. Last year 5 states in the USA made it legal for women to be topless in public places such as parks. It won't be so taboo as long as we have strong and persistent advocates for the change.
LECHERY: What do you hope to find in the hosiery and lingerie industry in the future?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I am not really sure? I don't have an answer to this question.
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?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: I always wear pantyhose, which does make me feel confident and sexy. Especially when I catch people giving me the up and down because they've noticed the shine or shimmer of the pantyhose as well.
As for advice, I can't say anything new that hasn't been said before. Do what makes you happy, comfortable and experiment with new things. Step outside of the comfort zone every now and then and keep your chin up!
LECHERY: Describe lingerie to you in three words:
MADAYLYNN RAYE: Delicate, Sultry, Investment
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?
MADAYLYNN RAYE: Creating A LOT of new content for MadalynnRayeAVN.com and my clip stores, working with my dogs, gardening, just doing what I normally do but with less social interaction.
