Konopacka had dark skin and brown eyes, owing to her Tatar ancestors on her moternal side. She always wore a red beret while competing, and was nicknamed "Miss Olympia". In 1928 she married Ignacy Matuszewski, who was soon to become the Minister of the Treasury, in which function he served in five consecutive governments of Poland.

She continued to be listed as one of the best Polish tennis players up until 1937. She was a guest of honor at both the 1936 Winter as well as Summer Olympics, and in 1938–1939 also a member of the Polish Olympic Committee. Being a well-educated woman, fluent in three foreign languages, she engaged in writing poetry. She wrote her first volume of poems titled Któregoś dnia (Some Day) in 1929, and later published her verses in the literary magazine of the Skamander group as well as in the Wiadomości Literackie, the premier literary periodical of the interbellum Poland, earning recognition among established writers of the day such as Mieczysław Grydzewski, Kazimierz Wierzyński and Antoni Słonimski. According to professor Anna Nasiłowska, Konopacka's works were valued for their feminist approach to analyzing the relationship between a man and a woman, and for their reminiscences of youth and the treatment of the topic of jealousy.
