Today, the beautiful lady Manon Edwards, or Chic With Curves has answered to our questions for the web magazine MonsieurMada.me. If you don’t know Manon and her world yet, this is your chance !
How many time do you have your blog ?
I started my present blog Chicwithcurves in 2014, but I already had another one, my first blog called Manonblogmode, in 2011 !
What does give you the idea to become an influencer ?
First of all, I do not consider myself as an influencer. I don’t really like this word, sounds bad to me. And I don’t share my favorites and my personal experience to influence my community, I want to help, motivate and share. I simply started to write with passion, to tell my stories, questions about life, about me, my problems, my fight about my body and about myself. And because I evolved, the audience of my blog raised up. I switched from a diary to a fashion blog, and now to something which more looks like of a lifestyle and advices blog. It’s directed to every women, not matter their size, who feel beautiful and not hung-up by society’s diktats. I just want to change things, and that’s why I became what I am today !
About the lingerie, why do you love it so much ?
The lingerie is the very image of femininity, freedom, love, sexuality and happiness ! I do like lingerie because it is supposed to be sexy, cute and make us feel great with our body. But, because of the fashion industry, nowadays it’s difficult to find a lingerie which suits with our own body. So, I like the very image of the lingerie but also the fight against the fashion industry for plus-size women !
Where do you pick your clothes ?
I love changing, discovering, I am really curious so I don’t have favorite shop or brand. However I admit often buy in US shops as Torrid, Lovesick, Curvy Couture. About French brands, I love websites Sans Complexe and Lemon Curve because of their prices and especially because quality and a huge choice of size !
Lace or cotton ?
Both, it depends of my day’s mood 😉
Panties or thong ?
Both too haha ! I am a girl who loves changing style each day.
Flashy or sober ?
I don’t really like flashy lingerie but if I find a flashy set of lingerie that I like, I would take it !
How were first looks watching at you ? Did they change since you have a kind of success ?
First ones, when I was 13/14 years old, and when I met my first boyfriend who was already dating another girl, oh dear !
Unfortunately, that’s true. A lot of men I met or dated, when they asked me that terrible question “What are you doing in your life ? ” and I talked about my blog, their look changed, and I became suddenly a slot machine ! Or worst, I became a kind of independent and busy girl, who doesn’t need a guy except for sex. But a working and busy girl who has projects also needs a man to love, hugs, attentions and love !
You are close to your community. Do you have a message to convey to it ?
Just be yourself, be proud of you, believe in everything you want to achieve and go on ! Do not be afraid to take some risks to be happy and make all your dreams come true.
Your favorite quote ?
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Your must-have to feel at ease and be at ease ?
Good Jeans: classic ones which suit with every clothes and could save every outfit ! Otherwise, it is especially a strength mind and motivation to believe in yourself and change things, to do not think of being different is a flaw but seeing the other good part ; it’s making you unique and interesting !
At least, this is your selection about lingerie. Suggest us around five or ten sets of lingerie for summer:
