If you love Instagram almost as much as your hosiery, there is a good chance you will have seen the stunning NyloNova account, featuring Monika in a collection of beautiful photographs. We spoke to the incredibly feminine Monika about her love for stockings, and this is what she had to say....Lucy x
Welcome to Mayfair, please tell us your name.
Hello Mayfair and thank you very much for having me on the blog! My name is Monika, but in all publications over the internet I rather prefer to be referred to as Mrs NyloNova.
Wearing nylon stockings definitely makes me feel more confident. Having such a unique and elegant hosiery on my legs, kind of creates an aura of attractiveness which is nothing but pleasure that you want to feel again and again.
Do you only wear stockings for special occasions, or do you wear them most of the time?
Considering my style of life I’d say I wear them any time it's possible, as I simply love to do that!
Do you prefer vintage nylon stockings, or modern day hosiery with a little stretch to them?
Definitely vintage nylon stockings are my favourite (both RHT and FF). However I do have, and wear, any kind of stockings including modern ones with a bit of stretch to them.
Why did you originally start wearing hosiery?
My first contact with nylon stockings came from a sensual photograph shown to me of a classically dressed woman in a skirt, blouse and nylons. I admired the shiny and impossibly silky stockings, although I had never actually seen or felt any.
I wasn't sure if nylons were for me. I felt I didn't look like that, and although many men would like to see their other half dressed this way, I doubted that could be me.
After some time I actually tried nylon stockings with a matching suspender belt. The first brush on my skin, that palpable impossibility of smoothness and transparency, made me not want to take them off. From that moment, nylon stockings now wrap around my legs whenever I wear dresses or skirts. It is a triumph of femininity - be sure to try them and it will not be easy for you to give up nylons!
What is your favourite outfit for making an impact?
It’s not difficult to guess that watching all the Mrs NyloNova photos! I prefer a lot of femininity in my outfits, so in most cases that would be a classic knee length pencil skirt or pencil dress, shirt or turtleneck and high heel pumps. Apart from that, I do also like to wear flare skirts from time to time, as they bring back a lovely charm of the vintage style.
