Who Reads Glamour?
With a circulation of nearly 2.3 million, Glamour is the only women's magazine to offer a 360-degree perspective on the reader's life: her relationships and her career, her clothes and her conscience, her pop culture and her politics. Sharp and smart but never cynical, Glamour informs readers without veering from its core message of self-acceptance. It is a magazine for women looking to stay up on the latest trends, get news-to-use advice and feel good about themselves. In other words, it's a magazine for every woman. No wonder Glamour is among the top ten best sellers in the U.S.

Glamour is the twentysomething woman's "Miss Manners" and charm-school bible, bursting at the seams with intimations, propositions, and warnings: how to dress for a dinner party, how to turn him on in five minutes, how to avoid the dreaded "fashion don't." Glamour's mission is to help the young woman trapped between Seventeen and Vogue find her way to becoming a happier, healthier, sexier gal. Unabashedly girly, including all the things we've come to expect from beauty and fashion mags--celebrity style gossip, hot trends in hair and makeup, quizzes, and quick fixes for everything from broken nails to fractured friendships--Glamour is girl talk, pure and simple. --Daphne Durham

- Glamour Girl!
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....more info
- Ok for 12 bucks
- has a splatter of fairly interesting articles/ pictures
- all of the fairly interesting articles/ pictures can be usually read and viewed in under half an hour
- (and in the table of contents/ on the cover they make a huge deal out of every, however tiny, article that's inside... often making cross-references/ multiple references to the same thing)
- besides dwindling inspiration, this is probably generally due to the fact that the magazine is absolutely overwhelmed by ads! Much more so than before, it seems. I would estimate that at least half, but as much as 2/3 of the magazine is dedicated to ads - many of which are very much in-your-face and clash with magazine materials
- although Glamour is more easy-going and not as pretentious as, say, Vogue... it has its share of preaching and hypocritical moments. For example, in the last issue they had an article about women/kids who escaped sex slavery in Darfur - with the interpersed full-page ads of bright red, high-heeled designer shoes! If you don't belive me, check out pages 256+ in the March 2008 issue... a pretty ridiculous sight.
- Glamour is OK
As far as beauty and fashion magazines go, I think Glamour is one of the better ones out there. I think it strives to be modern and tasteful while still keeping us updated on the usual topics we expect from it: fashion, beauty, dating, and careers. I would have to disagree that the articles are basically the same from month to month. I think many of the articles are entertaining and well-written without being tedious to read. They also appeal to an intelligent audience with an eye towards improving themselves. The only improvement I could see is making Glamour less mainstream-y....more info
- Cosmo is not what it used to be, but this magazine is the worst one
This magazine is as terrible as a magazine can get. Cosmopolitan isn't what it used to be but this magazine (Glamour) is garbage. Thank god I got the subscription for only $7 because other wise I'd call to have it canceled and demand for my money to be returned. This magazine has nothing interesting or new to read about......more info
i was very disappointed when i received my glamour magazine a few days ago. it was the december issue. we are in january and usually by now I usually receive the february issue. i don't understand...maybe there was some sort of mix up. ...more info
- Love it!
some issues are a bit boring, but most of them have great advise on
exercising, diet and fashion
..lloooveee itt!...more info
- a "light cosmo"
This magazine is a lighter version of Cosmo. But to do the magazine justice there are indeed more in-depth and interesting articles about people and issues compared to the mostly sex and dating tip-filled (and bad tips if I might add) Cosmopolitan Magazine. Overall, I think Glamour magazine is entertaining. I enjoy it. I used to love the more humorous segments with a girl acting out something embarrassingly goofy on the streets and being photographed but it seems like they've been veering away from that. I also enjoy the book reviews (which also seems to be decreasing) .. hopefully it's not slowly evolving into a Cosmo rival full-blown. I don't plan to discontinue my subscription any time soon!...more info
- The Magazine Diva says.......
I suggested on my site to share the subscription price with a friend. This mag has a few good ideas but no exactly on the pulse of my life....more info
- My favorite magazine!
This is one of my favorite magazines! It has a little bit of everything, and I love the do's and don't's section too. Its aimed for 20 and 30 something women. I can't miss a month of it!...more info
- fun and light reading
I really enjoy Glamour. It's total "brain candy" but I do get a lot out of it and it's a quick read, which will get you the info you're looking for in not a lot of time. Some good beauty and exercise tips. Interesting interviews from time to time.
I think it's a bargain, even though I don't read it cover to cover....more info
- too many ads
there's too many ads and not enough articles. Self magazine and marie claire are better for this reason....more info
- A great magazine!
I love Glamour! This has to be my favorite magazine of all times! Granted the ads drive me nuts but I love the Do and Don'ts and all the clothes. I am a shopping mogul! This magazine is great for showing new trends and I love layering and almost always they are showing new ways of layering clothes and teaching you how to wear your clothes in a different exciting way. I also enjoy the articles and life lessons as there is always something that I am interested in. I read Glamour almost from cover to back! I rarely skip articles! If you like fashion and just articles on every life issues this magazine is for you!
**I have noticed a change over the last year in the magazine, but it is not terrible.**...more info
- Pretty good
This magazine is pretty. I am not that interested in long articles, so the fact that this magazine has alot of pictures helped. ...more info
- One of the better ones in the genre
As a young women's magazine, it does a good job of balancing the "essentials" (sex, fashion, career advice, health) while providing humor. Definitely less focused on the how-tos of sex than some similar magazines, which I prefer. Great at covering recent, relevant, health issues....more info
- A mag for all size women who want affordable fashon!
LOVE THIS MAG! Who ever heard of a fashon magazine which includes ALL size/age women! GLAMOR DOES! One summer issue covered all body types and sizes - including what looked best on a size 24 women! TERRIFIC! Also a very thoughtfully written mag. I have no need for any other fashon mag....more info
- Great Magazine
Keeps me interested... But the fashion is all incredibly high priced, not something you can ever afford, which sucks....more info
There is no articles to read, most of the pages AD's, Yes it is colorful, but you can finish reading this magaz. in 10 min. And this particular mag. pay a lot of attention on sex. I feel kind of uncomfortable when my daughther reading this.
- Finally a magazine for real women
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....more info
- Great, classy magazine
I was an avid Cosmo reader for years, but it became more and more trashy... and then I discovered Glamour! It's filled with awesome beauty, fashion and lifestyle ideas without all the smut from Cosmo! The 'Hey, it's OK" section has to be one of my favorite; I look forward to it each month!...more info
- well rounded
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. ...more info
- Good fashion magazine w/ sense of humor
Okay, yeah, it's no "Vogue" or "Cosmo," but "Glamour" is a lot more accessible to the "everyperson" than the other two. Not all of us have glamourous pagegirl jobs that (miraculously) pay six figures. Seriously--secretaries in Prada? As if! So Glamour is a little more realistic, and a little more fun. AND a lot less expensive. It's a fun, "cheap," guilty pleasure....more info
- great service, great magazine, great price
always love GLAMOUR, better price than subscription renewal or new subscription at $10 a year with 2-year subscription, no extra handling fee, very fast delivery, less than 3 weeks...more info
- Hooked from my first issue.
I just renewed my subscription to Glamour because they are one of the only magazines I have ever read that feature both a significant amount of affordable items (i.e. less than $100) as well as intelligent, relevant articles about women AND men.
Sure, they have their "off" months, but I really appreciate that ads don't tend to dominate the magazine as much as others (especially for as low as the subscription rate is). I also can't wait to see the "Do's and Don'ts" every month!...more info
- Quality women's magazine
...I think that Glamour has proven itself to be one of the most sensible women's magazines available. My perfect magazine would incorporate intelligent articles on health (not simply exercise, but medical issues), sex, beauty, career, relationships and travel. I think that Glamour comes very close to being the ideal magazine. I do think there is room for improvement--the quality and variety of these articles is not always what it could be. But I must say that I have actually kept one of my old Glamours because it has an excellent article on birth control pills that was extremely informative. I have never kept any other women's magazines! Glamour is not trashy like Cosmo, but I like the fact that it features fun articles on sex and relationships. I don't want the total focus to be sex and 'how to keep your man happy', but a little sex info is good! All in all I think Glamour is a quality magazine that is on the right track, but just needs to focus on being more informative and substantial....more info
- What a crime to see what has happened to this magazine!!!
I first subscribed to Glamour in 1981, when I started college. I rarely let my subscription lapse until last year. I just couldn't take it anymore!
Half the magazine is about sex. It is not about factual, informative sexual issues, but instead reads more like Penthouse articles.
They give health advice that hearkens back to the 50's. They have no idea what they are talking about and often have factual errors. As someone in the health field, I am offended by their "non-advice".
At some point, they will lose the customer base and the head honchos will wake up and realize they screwed up. I hope they can do it before this magazine goes away forever.
Get a new editor!!! If women want to know about orgasms they can read Cosmo. I want informative articles about health and makeup.
If you want to get the best beauty mag, get Allure. This magazine is consistently classy and you will be on the cutting edge of new beauty products and trends....more info
I have purchased a subscription to this magazine 3 times.
I have NEVER received all 12 of the issues. I always got 8 or 9. I contacted glamour several times and never got any help. It was very frustrating. I do like the magazine, but I gave up on ordering it....more info
- an updated review
After I bought Glamour off the news stand, I read it and completely loved it. The previous reviews were a little bit out of date here on Amazon, and in my opinion, a magazine can transform dramatically in a year, if not less. There's definitely a lot less fluff and a lot of wonderful articles in 2005. For example, there were articles about the emotional hardships with a mom whose kid is mentally ill and the story of up coming star as a happily adopted child. There were articles on women who struggled so that girls today can play in Little League, women can get credit cards and keep their job when they get pregnant. There's a lot of important and powerful article on women's rights with a dose of celebrity life. My favorite article was Aisha Tyler showing us how much digital touchup can do to cover models....it definitely made me feel a lot better about my body.
I felt like Glamour had enough dosage with fashion, health news, beauty tips, and celebrity life, but still did a great job to remind us the greatness of being a woman. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that I had flip through 6 pages of ads before I got to the table on contents. I suppose that's how magazines make their money, but I can do without. Other than that, great mag! If every issues is like the one I read, I'd subscribe to it in a heart beat.
- For Granddaughters
I wanted a magazine here for my granddaughters to read when they were over, and this one is great!...more info
- Good read
I like this one better than Cosmo. Great info on beauty and the like....more info
- Glamour Magazine
Very good. Cheap too. I got my sis a subscription too and she loves it too. ...more info
- Nice read, but...
I used to buy Glamour when it looked interesting and decided to subscribe to it now in order to save money. I ordered it in mid November and just received the first issue today. What really irritates me is that I received the December issue today- although the January issue is already in stores (and I had already bought the December issue). So although I like the magazine, the subscription is off to a bad start......more info
- My favorite "trashy magazine"
I've had subscriptions to just about every woman's magazine there is over the past 8 years, but the only one I always renew is "Glamour". It's less "how-to-catch-a-man" oriented than "Cosmo", less pseudo-hipster than "Jane" and less serious than "Marie Claire". While it's certainly no "Ms." magazine, it has a lot of women-positive messages every issue, articles that aren't as sensationalistic and fear-mongering than most found in women's magazines, and lots of fashion and beauty tips. I feel that "Glamour" strikes the right balance between frivolity and seriousness--for those of you who like a side of third-wave feminism with your fashion, I highly recommend it. ...more info
- Love it
In a world full of teen magazines, I am thankful to have a grown-up outlet for pleasurable reading. ...more info
- *My favorite Mag*
This is my favorite magazine for the past 10 years and it's not expensive like cosmo....more info
A MAGAZINE FOR EVERY WOMEN. WITH A LOT OF INFO ABOUT DIFFERENT TOPPICS. YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED. EVERY ITEM IS A NEW NEWS AND SOMETHING TO BE GLAD TO KNOW OF....more info
- Still have not gotten an issue
Still am waiting on the magazine when I got an email a month ago saying it was being processed and I should get it shortly...more info
- glamour not for teens
This magazine is full of very adult advertising. They seem to aim towards teens but most of it is advertising. I had a hard time finding an article that wasn't selling something. I thought is was interesting enough for my 19 year old but realized its not even interesting enough for my 15 year old niece....more info
- Save your money for a different magazine
I started ordering Glamour 2 months ago, and honestly it is a huge disappointment to me. There are so many ads in this magazine its unbelievable. Ladies, my advice is to save your money for a different magazine..I dont recommend Glamour at all. ...more info
- Better than most . . .
Compared to most of the "girlie" magazines and then on the other hand, the "snobbish" ones, I'd say Glamour is probably one of the best. It's not pretentious, it tries to feature articles that show other people doing good in the world and making changes for the better. ...more info
- Glamour magazine review
I am amazed at how fast the subscription started. I signed up through Amazon and within 3 weeks I had my first issue. It's a great magazine and I could not believe the price, 12 issues for $1.50, that's just too good to pass up. Highly recommended!...more info
- mehran review
I like this magazine very much and I believe that this magazine can be a very powerful resource for solvinf women's today problems....more info
- Too much sex
Glamour is a generally really good magazine, but it has a lot of sex. there was a really disgusting article about what you could do to make a guys erection come sooner, and it just dawned on me, that a lot of the readers of Glamour must be teenagers. they shouldn't be learning about sex that early! but it does have a lot of good articles, too. i like it....more info
- A Fun Respit
Glamour is a fun, girlie read and a bit of brain candy. It does usually have an informative public awareness article as well. But lets not forget the detailed reviews of what's in, regarding fashionable clothing and fun beauty products. Everything you need to make you feel like a hottie on a cold dark wintery day....more info
- Single a documentary film
Glamour has maintained it's leadership role as a style leader for its demographic. It's ability to create the image of the young and sexy has a powerful impact. If you enjoy this magazine you will almost certainly enjoy the new dvd "Single a documentary film"..."Single" features a cast
of entertaining and thought provoking experts,comics,singer/songwriters,and "real people" sharing their insights and observations about the complexities of relationships in todays crazy world. ...more info
- I suscribe to this magazine every year!
I have subscribed to Glamour every year! I love the features about careers and relationships most -- although I also do love the beauty and fashion columns. Women in their twenties and thirties should all read Glamour. It is smart, sassy, sexy and entertaining! Subscribe today!...more info
