This has to be my favorite magazine because It has a little bit of everything. Cosmo is about more carnal subjects, Marie Claire has many serious subjects, Vogue is pure fashion, Allure is practically a beauty bible but Glamour has all these things & it's that versatility that I like.
I've been reading Glamour for the past three years and it has been a great magazine all around. Glamour covers topics on health, career, finances, sex, relationships, style, etc. Of all the magazines on the newsstands, this one is the most intelligent and savvy for women in their 20s and 30s. Yes there are too many ads like in most magazines, but that's how the media survives, they get their salary mostly from ads. I usually don't mind because I feel that its such a great magazine, that the ads are worth putting up with. I have felt that at times Cosmopolitan is a little too focused on sex and "please your man" articles.
Glamour seems to have found a nice balance and I don't feel that it dumbs down my intelligence at all. I do wish that they would expand beyond the typical articles. I wish that they would include more sections on culture, travel, and technology. Men's magazines include articles on gadgets and tech, and as a woman I enjoy gadgets as well. Its not just a guy thing. Its not a perfect magazine, some issues are better than others, but I feel that at this time Glamour is the best magazine for women right now.
I found a couple of articles that were worth the years of magazine subscription. A bit like MORE for 30 year olds. I dislike articles on fashion and relationships, read COSMO if you need them. And read GLAMOUR for health, career and general info.
I would combine a subscription of this magazine with one of Jane. Jane magazine is sassy, intelligent and witty, and written in a way you talk with a friend. None of the namby-pamby captions to the photos you see in this magazine, and the fashion spreads, tips and stories are incredible. I wish Jane were thicker, but it is a magazine I read from cover to cover. Glamour is great in the sense that its scope is broad, and has lots of topics. Jane is excellent because it's written for women who enjoy thinking for themselves, and don't just believe everything the media feeds them. Jane: Smartly written for smart women. Glamour: a good companion to it.
I get a lot of magazines. A lot. Very few get read through completely for obvious reasons; time, many other mags to read, not interested in ALL the content. This is one I read through each and every month, along with Parents, TV Guide and Readers Digest. It has great articles that appeal to almost everyone, humor, great advice, etc. I really enjoy it and usually read it as soon as it arrives!
I stopped buying and ordering magazines because it seemed all they ever told you were things to do for your "man".
Glamour actually has articles that make you think and make you laugh.
Great mag for those who want more out of life than how to please their partner.
I decided to subscribe to this magazine a couple of years and have not been dissappointed; it is well balanced since it has articles on every subject that a woman, wife, mother, daughter is interested in. Used to read Cosmo but I hate its sex obsessed magazines. Keep up the good work Glamour!!!
