Maria loves modeling, fashion and is always looking for beautiful styles that can be complemented with tights.
Mikko loves photography.
Together they have created one of the most beautiful and impressive hosiery blogs: MyPantyhoseGirl.
We recently interviewed Maria and are really pleased to now publish the conversation we had.
Hi Maria, can you tell us a bit about yourself and Mikko and why you started the MyPantyhoseGirl blog?
First of all thank you so much for interviewing us! We are a married young couple who lives in Finland and enjoys the lifestyle of modelling and taking pictures of our daily life and showing it in the blog. Our blog is a hobby and recently we started a YouTube channel, as well as Instagram and Twitter which show the passion for pantyhose/tights together with fashion and modern style.
What is unique about the MyPantyhoseGirl blog and what are you aiming to achieve
We get a lot of letters from all over the world with thank-you notes about our blog and for us it is already unique that so many people appreciate what we do. We show that every girl should show her beauty and it is so easy to emphasize with beautiful looks combined with tights. Right now we are aiming to explore all the tights brands that exist in the world and find one perfect pair which will become utopia.
How else can people stay in touch with your work, apart from the blog?
We have YouTube channel, Twitter and Instagram. On Instagram you can see our daily updates.
You were one of the winners of the Wolford #UPDATE YOUR LEGS competition. Can you tell us more about the competition and the experience of winning?
The competition was absolutely breathtaking for me and Mikko. I couldn’t imagine that we would win but we decided to participate and it happened. You can read about the competition and see more photos from our post in the blog.
What are your favourite brands of tights?
I love many: Wolford, Cecilia de Rafael, Gatta, Falke, Kunert, Pretty Polly, Calzedonia. Each of these brands have new collections every season and I always find something new and interesting for my outfits to wear.
Are there any brands you are eager to try and review?
I have heard that Swiss brand Fogal is great. I have received two pairs recently and will review in YouTube channel. I would also like to try the American brands Victoria’s Secret and Hue.
There has been a lot of media coverage of tights for men recently. What are your thoughts about the greater visibility of men buying and wearing tights?
I consider tights to be unisex clothing. You can just find more of tights for women because women are bigger consumers in clothing and where is a demand - there is an offer. I think there should be more items in the market for men.
To men thinking about trying tights, what would you say are the main benefits of wearing them?
Tights are very comfortable especially when it is cold. They prevent cold air and they are very comfortable to wear. I think you can try different models, experiment and find what you like the most. Especially try support tights which will help your legs stay more energetic.
What can we expect next at MyPantyhoseGirl?
We have some projects about which you will know soon. Stay tuned in!
Thanks for speaking to Hosiery For Men Maria. I hope our readers will enjoy reading about the blog and stay in touch with you.
