More's One Sided Views: First, I would like to cancel my subscription. Initially reading about More magazine I thought “Finally, a magazine about the self acceptance of real women, 30-60 age range”. I have received only 2 magazines and have been offended by both, which doesn’t bode well for my future with More.
From articles slobbering over Hillary Clinton as if she’s the only woman in politics to the final straw on the cover of your March edition - Would You Risk Your Life for Your Beliefs?. I had very high hopes as I opened the plastic wrapper, imagining that perhaps More was going to cover a hard hitting story such as Honor Killings and the degradation of Muslim women which takes place right here in America or perhaps China’s treatment of women and/or unborn and born baby girls-killing them immediately because a boy is much more desirable.
So with these lofty expectations in mind, you can only imagine my disappointment and disgust (but maybe YOU can’t) when I turned to the page and found that the article was hailing an abortionist as if she was Mother Teresa resurrected. So soon on the heels of the discoveries in the offices of the Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, this is what you chose to highlight?
Do you even know the history of Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project of 1939 and her statement “Blacks, Soldiers and Jews are a menace to the race.” (i.e.white race)?
It is no secret why she so openly “fought” for abortion in the United States in the mid to late 1930’s. It was because she discovered it would be an easy way to kill two birds with one stone. Slow down the births of black and Jewish children (undesirables) in America in an effort to keep the white race pure.
I am not naive enough to think that anything I say in this letter will change the minds of women who have been bred and educated with that constant drumbeat of “feminism” and “abortion being a right”. Abortion IS legal but it is NOT a right. If you can show me these rights in our Constitution I will soon thereafter send a heartfelt apology.
I am not naive enough to think this letter will ever be published in More, but coming from 25 years as a paralegal in some of Los Angeles most prestigious law firms, while performing and touring on stage as a lead singer and back up singer for over 35 years, I am certainly not considered wallflower material, living silently in the shadow of a man. I’m a strong, intelligent black woman who is tired of reading one sided journalism displayed in every woman’s magazine with no opposing thoughts or views.
I’m almost expecting to see a “How To Please Your Man Every Night” on the next cover. Wake up women.

I definitely related to Lesley Jane Seymour's letter about getting rid of what doesn't matter. As a recent retiree I am doing just that. In my professional and private lives. I'm also working on getting rid of extraneous noise. Toward that end I am changing my radio listening habits. AM/FM radio is so filled with commercials that it's difficult to enjoy the music. So I've switched to satellite radio stations (classical, jazz, R&B, new age) where I can set a mood and stay there for as long as I like -without being hounded to buy anything.

Dianne Erickson03.24.2014

Fashion over 60?
Seriously, Wear beige and satin? I'm 71 and wouldn't be caught in any of the stuff on that page. Someone is really out of touch... We are not your granma's grandma. Disappointed that you would suggest we blend in with the background!

03.21.2014

Your age-appropriate attire article on-line is a joke! Your models are teens. Why not show women 40+ in these outfits? They might not look so age appropriate after all. And you have some really offensive ads on more.com, too. I''m really sorry I just renewed my subscription.

03.13.2014

I am beginning to feel as though More is out of touch with average older women in America. I was really disappointed in 'The Woman Who Won't Back Down'. There is nothing brave or heroic about what Ms. Burkhart is doing. With scientific advances it is getting harder and harder to justify abortion. In addition, the melodramatic tone in which the article was written was laughable. "Are we going to be a country that forces Midwestern women to be pregnant ?" Seriously? I haven't encountered such hysteria since Reefer Madness. Perhaps you should consider an article on real woman of 'Style and Substance' like Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life.

Love the issue on body image..I,m recently engaged at 57 yrs old..something I really didn't expect to happen to me after 25 yrs of a happy marriage that unfortunately ended when my late "Precious" husband died from heart disease..I was single for 1 1/2 yrs before I even started thinking about dating again..and afer 6 months of "Blog worthy" dating stories(soon to be a best selling novel..lol)I met a semi normal guy who I really liked and it all began from there..its been an adventure on body image
When I met kevin..I had just lost 50 lbs..but being a heavy girl..and still a heavy girl after the loss..I had/have some serious issues..Im definitely a work in progress..I have gotten braver..and its simple things..like letting him see me laying on the bed ..naked..of course Im horrified..he is perfectly lovely..I love his body..he is average height and weight..and he loves mine..but Im the first to pull up a sheet..grab a towel..etcetera..saggy boobs..drooping belly..flappy thighs..dimpled butt..I am not comfortable naked..BUT because of the issue on body image.I HAVE TO THANK YOU...I was in the kitchen this weekend..and Kevin comes out of the shower..stark naked..I start to head towards him to grab hold of him and he screeches..and goes back into the bathroom..Im like baby..whats wrong?
He then says a familiar sentence to me..that I say daily to him..
"Don't look at me..Im ugly"
and he sticks his head out the door and says.."now you know how it feels"
AHA!moment.(TY OPRAH!)...he loves ME..he thinks Im perfect
he is supportive in my diet journey(which aint going too smoothly!)and he LOVES the person..he tells me how soft my skin is..how sexy I am..Im dealing with MY issues..not HIS
So..I appreciate the issue..I got damn lucky with a man like this.. and I showed him how much more comfortable I was going to be by jumping in the shower with him yesterday..and although it was crowded and we laughed..alot..it was a milestone..we have been together almost a year..and are getting married this September
Thank you so much for this magazine! Im sure its going to help a lot of people with the AHA moment!

HI- I really enjoy getting More each month, and I have just renewed for another 2 years. Your magazine focuses on many things, especially full-time career women. Please remember that many of us are current (or former) stay-home moms who spent a lot of time and energy raising the kids and taking care of the homefront. And, like myself, many of us work pt time doing many different things. Please keep us in mind as you plan stories, etc. I LOVE when you put a 50+ (or even 60+) woman on the cover. That's who we are, your readers! And it's ok for someone to make the cover who's NOT a gorgeous tv/movie star. It's ok to keep it real :)

Janice 02.21.2014

Love the articles in your magazines especially the fashions for ladies in their 60s. However, this month (March 2014) the selections of styles and colors were dull and boring. Those grey and blush colors do nothing to enhance an older women's complexion. Some shades of yellow, blue, green and coral would have been a better choice to brighten up skin tones and portray a vibrant attitude for Spring!

02.14.2014

I saw the cover of the February issue and thought "They still don't get it." How could I reinvent myself at 30 when I hadn't been invented yet? I am counting the months until my subscription is done.

Artist cape cod01.28.2014

I have just loved your magazine since I began with it many years ago....fresh, easy to read, great articles, etc. How I wish you had more articles and ideas for we late 60's going into our 70's women who feel younger than we look! It seems you stop in the early 60's at the oldest usually. Let's hear some great tips on dressing my age without looking like I am over the hill.
Thanks....Artist CapeCod

I'll join the so many recently complaining voices about current MORE. It's indeed very sad to see the decadence of one of the best (if nit the best) magazines!! The reason I've kept my subscription going especially since the new Editor-in-Chief, Ms. Lesley Jane Seymour, took over.
The entire 'format' of the Magazine changed and became "jazzy/fuzzy" in the looks!! What is all
this interrupting the sequence of serious literary articles? You loose track plus, all the black and blue bolder and what have you letterings.. Enough is Enough!! And nowadays you pretend to be
VOGUE Magazine with the perfume advertisements?? What about people sensitive to the smells
and people like me with fragrance intolerance? Now I have to choke just perusing through the
Magazine OR just toss it in the paper recycling bin. I am too skeptical about renewing it. What's
the purpose?? Let alone you changed the quality of the paper and the printing ink and now one
has to wash his/her hands immediately after touching the Magazine. What about the plastic wrap
with the address tag on it for mailing. I hate to receive a magazine that arrives in my box all ruined OR so filthy. You may claim that I can read on line. However, I pay to receive the original magazine and that's how I expect to receive it.
Please don't let the MORE Ship reach the bottom.. It's a SHAME!! Then, you'll have to live with the Guilt that you found a very sound Magazine --the best to my knowledge--to cater to women
40+ full with very 'real and sensitive' literary articles and you turned it to the known GARBAGE/
TRUSHY Magazine like so many around us. Alas!!

01.04.2014

I always read More Magazine, then stopped because I could not understand how you find every woman you photograph so perfect. I would drive myself crazy wondering why I was not that perfect and turning heads the way I used to, how do they do it. Well in the last 5 years I have had a number of health issues, and realize now what is important, MY HEALTH. I try to look as good as I can, however, I am reading More Magazine again, and it is making me more upset than before. This magazine cannot be for real women. First, I thought this magazine was for older women, I am now 62. There is no way I could afford
the items in your magazine. I joined the More Opinonistas so I could comment on this. I am very interested in exactly what kind of opinions you are really looking for. I see that many of your readers are disappointed, do you see that or are you looking for only perfect people with money to subscribe.

marla 12.02.2013

I started subscribing to MORE a few years ago because I finally found a magazine that showed I could still be fashionable and stylish in my 40s. Please show more clothing styles and fashion for my age (now 50). Your magazine used to have several pages of fashion and style information, but now I see more articles that do not appeal to me. I also agree the clothing and accessories need to be reasonably priced. I am a professional, but I am also careful with my money. I feel I wasted money on my subscription and wasting my time reading it. Thank You.

11.24.2013

Allow me to add my voice to those who are complaining about the younger slant that now appears in More. I have been a loyal reader for years - I buy it every month. I find it INSULTING that you seem to think by pushing the stories toward the 30's age range, you won't offend those of us who have always loved this magazine. Sarah Michelle Gellar was a totally inappropriate choice for the cover, or any story, for that matter. Are you having advertising trouble??? Perhaps you need to get a better sales staff. This magazine was founded for women over 40 - you are screwing it up.

Veronica Braga11.19.2013

I am 54 years old and have been reading More for over a decade. I always loved this magazine, talk to my friends about the articles and I have even given subscriptions as a gift. What I love about it most is its uniqueness, that it was made for older women, I could relate with the articles and even the adds that use to come in it. Now if you are changing and opening your public for women in their 30s and think that you won't loose your faithful public you are seriously mistaken. You can have an idea just looking at how many of us have complained here. I think it's a very bad market decision that should be reviewed. How about a pool with all the subscribers (not only the facebook users) to find out what they think? I really don't think that the style and substance of women are the same in those different group ranges.

Erin 10.31.2013

You officially lost my subscription renewal. I was an big fan of MORE as it spoke to my demographic. But for the past few issues, it appears to be aiming at a significantly younger crowd. Sarah Michelle Gellar? She's lovely, but she's 35. I bought MORE because it spoke to me. Now it's just another Glamour or Marie Clare. I love being almost 50. I loved having a magazine that celebrated me. I'm sorry it's gone.

10.30.2013

I echo what all the others have said. When I saw the current cover with Michelle Geller on it I said "you've got to be kidding." The ONE reason I subscribe to MORE is that it catered to hip women 40 plus. I agree, the 30 something's have enough of their own magazines. I too will totally rethink re-subscribing if this continues. Come on More, you had a good thing going, WHY, WHY, WHY!!!!!!!!!!!

10.28.2013

I am so sorry that I renewed my subscription. Women that are 30-something have enough magazines. What happened to more being for women over 40? I am so disappointed and as I can see in other letters, I'm not the only one!
And another thing...not all of us can afford some of the products/clothes that you show. Come on now...how many people are REALLY going to pay over $100 for one blouse or $259 for a pair of pants! Get real MORE!! Again, sorry I re-newed my subscription...I have wasted my money!!!

10.22.2013

Off to yoga tomorrow morning then a trip to Amsterdam and Bruges next week so pretty active. I guess when I return it will be time to cancel my More subscription as I will turn 60 while away and as implied on my November cover, aging well is only possible to the age of 50! Yikes that's a scary thought! I guess you don't want to appeal to anyone who is 60?

karen Winston10.22.2013

I too am disappointed by the decision to make this magazine for women in their 30s. they have plenty of options, but as I approached my 40s THIS was the only magazine that spoke to me. Now that I'm 50 I do not want to see fashion for women 20 years younger than I am. We have different needs, physically, sexually, emotionally and financially.

Jan 09.24.2013

I'm considering not renewing my subscription since you are now including the 30 somethings as a focus in MORE. I feel betrayed and somewhat worthless since I will be 70 next year. Also, those handbags, shoes and other $$$wear are so overpriced.....who really pays $800 for a tote bag or shoes? Why not offer a survey on what your readers would actually buy and wear?

Cathy Harvey09.24.2013

Am unable to fully communicate how sad, angry and disappointed I was after reading "Hormone Hoax" in the October 2013 issue. It appears that my formerly favorite magazine fits nicely in Big Pharma's pocket. No More for me. Enjoy the 1950's.

Lulu Shelley09.22.2013

I found your magazine when I was 45, in 2005. I loved it and it was the first magazine I have ever subscribed to. Married, working, raising a family, dealing with growing a little older but still looked years younger, loved fashion, makeup, articles for 40 and over....I thought I was I'm heaven with this find. I believe this was the mission of the founder, by reading the Editors column last month. But Leslie...you changed that mission to you own, and now it's not exactly the magazine for us anymore. Letter after letter after letter talk about the changed demographics. I belong to a Moms group in my neighborhood and there are about 20 of us ranging in age from 32 to 54.
Believe me, those 30 year olds aren't interested in reading for entertainment the same things we 50 year olds are. I lived thru the mommy wars,,,been there done that. You know, I just can't quite figure out what you are really going with this magazine. I think you are turning it into a 30-40-50 demographic publication than a 40 and up. You have to draw the line somewhere and it seems you have fudged it and you original readers are not happy.
The fonts are way to small. The curly fronting of headings aren't attractive nor easy to read. This magazine has changed and not for the better. I used to read cover to cover...it was fun and interesting. I would but it as gifts. Now I flip thru it because its hard to read and I don't feel like squinting. In find many articles too serious...and I don't enjoy looking at the 30 year old clothes and models. I also agree with another poster the prices of clothing are too expensive.
I feel sorry for the founder of your magazine and all of us followers. You have let us down. JCP knew when they made a mistake and turned it around....I hope More follows suit.

Bonnie 09.01.2013

Your magazine is interesting to me because I'm at the old end of the demographic you say you're serving. After not seeing it for awhile, MORE has been mis-delivered to my mailbox. Oh boy! I love magazines and get lots of them. My observation? You aren't talking to older, professional women. The articles seem to be aimed at some of us. You're being underserved by your art direction. Someone has a tin-ear for typography. If you're being told the art directions is 'smart", "fresh", "cool"-- well, no. The thing is, it probably looks great on a computer screen. But it's hard to parse out what you're supposed to read first, what has priority, where the information is. In the recent issue, the piece on "the Gilded Age" was exhausting. Finding the merchandise was too much trouble. Dark photos. Too many fonts. Tiny, 8 pt. type reversed out of a black background? No one wants to work that hard. And that's the tone of the whole magazine. If I were to look at the magazine without reading the headlines for the stories, I would think it was aimed at teens. Art directors are visual people who are often not big readers. Good writing and thinking is getting buried by poor art direction. Text is more than a design element. Sorry. I was prepared to love MORE. What I've seen isn't reflecting what I thought your brand was.

Vanessa West08.23.2013

I love this magazine but I am getting tired of the way it promotes conservative females like that woman from Arizona. Or the one from Alaska. They are neither "firebrands" nor "game-changers." and calling them such is irresponsible. They are divisive, destructive, loose cannons. They are not taking women forward. Their policies & the beliefs they espouse set women back -- all for their own personal gain.
But I particularly take offense to the article in the September 2013 issue "What Do We Owe Our Parents?" Republicans are more likely than Democrats or Independents to agree that "we owe our parents the same type of emotional and financial support they have given us." Shame on you, More! Your partisan leanings are showing.
Please stick to helpful articles for ALL women and leave your politics out. (By the way, your politics are way, way off.)

08.19.2013

I have a question -
I have been unemployed for three years and may be starting back to work. I have lost 18 pounds and none of my old work clothes fit (actually I got rid of them). What do I need to start a basic, working wardrobe?

Charlie Spencer08.15.2013

I have no idea if this is the correct place to post this. I am a man and I find your website to be absolutely female. Very difficult to understand and negotiate with.
Anyhow. My new wife (only married now for about 2 years) in my humble opinion is a classic example of a successful strong woman who never worried about the so called "glass ceiling". She partnered with another woman over 20 years ago and started a CPA firm. Since that time they have successfully grown the business to a thriving firm. Both are now in their late 50's and considered major community leaders. They have a rock solid staff with all but zero turnover and are very well respected within the geography they serve. Their market is very diverse. This area is rural with lots of retirees here due to the beautiful lake home environment. A mix of local tourist economy and wealthy retirees. Her and her partner are totally opposites politically. My wife is very conservative and her partner is as liberal as it gets. Despite this, they have never allowed their politics to get in the way of building a very successful CPA firm built and managed by two women. I found one of your magazines a year or so ago in her bathroom. I have been reading ever since. Anyhow, I think the story of their firm and success as women in the business world deserves to be told. This firm is Reach and Schweigert CPA's, Eagle River Wisconsin. I am so proud of her and her partner for being able to build such a strong business in a tough market. Both of them are known for supporting numerous charities in their communities and being strong supporters of numerous causes such as the local community college, public radio, economic development, utility companies on and on. They are both true leaders and have been for many years now. If you think this is worth a story, please contact me. Charlie Spencer.... 715-385-2802 boulderjct2@centurytel.net.

07.11.2013

I love the concept of your magazine but would love it even more if you included a large (and getting larger) demographic of women in their 60's. Most of the tips and "best for" are for women up to and including their 50's. Women in their 60's have special needs and we need those tips as well! Can you include more information for this large demographic of women? Thanks for your consideration.

connie hardesty07.09.2013

Nice, informative magazine, BUT why the cheesecake photos? It was disgusting to turn the page and see Debra Messing with a pillow in front of her "hoo-ha". Also, in the May issue (which just arrived - weeks after the June issue), theere's Lauren Graham showing more boobs and thigh than I care to see. Just who are you trying to appeal to?

06.24.2013

I like reviews of beauty treatments and products that are not paid advertisements but I found your article on page 79 (couldn't find a title) comparing the skin of 4 women before and after treatment not very genuine. The before pictures showed the women without makeup or hair done (looking purposefully dull) yet the after picture has them made up and with their hair styled Why not let us compare apples to apples so we can see what the products and treatments really did. We all look better after hair and makeup.
I am also not crazy about the new look and the emphasis on 30-40 something's trying to act young. Show me mature professional women in their 40-60s and I will keep reading.

Elizabeth Lynn06.22.2013

I really like this magazine, with one exception. Just about everything that you show that is a 'must' or 'should' have is too expensive. Way too expensive. I never had that kind of money to throw around, even before the recession. How about some things that us non-executives can afford. Like the looks, hate the prices.

Regina 05.30.2013

I'm very very disappointed that so many of the models in your magazine and on your site are under 35 (I mean Julia Stiles?! give me a break!), and that woman who are actually over 45 are rarely photographed in your fashion section. Furthermore, when it comes to hair, greying hair is rarely addressed. I choose not to color my hair and could really use some tips on how best to go through that transition. But I find little to no information on that topic- something that many women in their mid-40's are going through.
I was originally drawn to More for it's smart vision to appeal to an older woman and to drop all the fashion magazine frilliness, and I don't mean the 'How to dress in your 40's, 50's, etc' that's very useful. But I'm sad to see that More has moved more towards the same ole fashion magazine, pushing the corporately funded youth culture, packed to the brim with anti-aging cosmetics and celebrities who aren't actually mid-aged or older, while it appears to encourage women to embrace their age with pride. I don't appreciate the conflicting messages.
I love your section on women who have re-made themselves in mid-life. I appreciate the real fashion advice for changing body-types. But please, please stop trying to be Marie Claire, or worse, Glamour, and stick to your mission. I get the feeling that your editors and writers aren't actually over 40, given the direction of the magazine.

Patti 05.22.2013

Love your magazine as it relates to middle-aged women. The other magazines cater to the 30-something soccer mom. But PLEASE, just because our kids are grown and we like quality instead of just a fad, not all of us are professional women and not all of us can afford plastic surgery and a pair of pants that cost $250.00.
Getting a little annoyed about how just because I'm in my 50's I need to use botox, retinol, etc. Some of us are still on a budget! :-)

05.18.2013

I love your book section - how about a barcode app that let us scan the books into our phone so that we have them with us when we go to the library or bookstore?

Noreen Martin05.15.2013

LAUREN GRAHAM's photo on p86 was a bit much; I get that she thinks she is "all that" but this mag is not for men and a more appropriate could have been used. I don't need to see her cleavage; I'm 62 and for her age she doesn't need to be doing bust shots -- speaking of ages: I do like your "this is what 30, 40, 50, 60 LOOKS LIKE". I enjoy your style sections so I see what's in style but your price point is out of my budget but I get the idea. Thanks.

Janet 04.08.2013

I'm 60, still working, and I make a comfortable living. I enjoy buying and wearing quality clothing, shoes, and bags.
However, with every issue of More, I am dismayed at the prices of the items you feature. I simply would not pay $400 for a blouse, or $800 (or more) for a purse, because it's just not necessary. There are many quality brands for half that...or less.
It would be nice to see a regular feature showing stylish, age-appropriate looks for less. Not all of us care about having designer brands.
Thanks for your consideration.

Lulu Shelley04.08.2013

Concerning the mommy wars....the women who are currently part of that are Moms with small kids. Once the become teens, women realize it made no difference in how the turn out. As long as no physical and enotional harm is done, they will grow up into who they would have become no matter what we did. The choice was foe ourselves, not for their the. We older Mom's realize this now, that's why it stops down the road.
I found your magazine at age43, it is now 10 years later. I was delighted to find a magazine geared towards my age, interests and style. I agree with everyone else writing in to give up the 30's. sure, their will be some, but no way would I have read a magazine at 35 that mentioned women in thei 40's and 50's. I wasted there yet....why do you think that demographic wants to read that. The only reason I can think of the change is you weren't doing well financially so needed to capture more, or your workers are in their 30's .

Jan Weaver04.05.2013

i tried to do this through HELP but there isn't any help for me. I have filled out my profile, I have made comment, I have told my story and there is nothing there anymore. I saved everything??? also I jave not gotten April's issue. I got last month after I ordered and paid on line then I got a bill??? please check my history or someone advise me how to reach publication department thanks Janis Weaver
thank you so much Janis Weaver

STLReader 04.02.2013

I'm glad that More is reaching out to women in their 30's. My late 30's were hard -- I could feel myself moving into a new phase of life but I had no idea how to navigate it in terms of career, clothing, makeup, beauty, etc. I felt like I was hitting a dead end but More has helped me embrace the possibilities and experiences that are still out there. However, 2 things I don't like: 1) I'm white and even I would like to see more women of color on your cover. 2) Please lay off the botox/cosmetic surgery advice/coverage. 3) Stop assuming that all women share the same political views. I don't need to know who the actresses on your cover voted for or what political causes they support (Connie Britton, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, to name some recent examples). Every time I read something like that I think, well, I guess More doesn't want my business unless I'm a Democrat.

What We Leave Behind by Patti Davis:
Upon reading this last-page essay in the March issue of my favorite monthly magazine, it left me with a feeling I could not identify. I re-read it and found I could connect and agree with the essence of what Ms. Davis was conveying regarding the importance of what we leave behind. With this being said, why was I stuck on some level of discomfort around this article?
I have concluded, in my humble view point, it seems to contain an element of judgmental thinking that is difficult for me to support. What each of us leaves behind is as different as every unique soul on the planet. Is it really justified to go from the dirty windows and weeds, to condemning these individuals as messy and neglectful in relationships or that somehow, they are less than desirable human beings?
What we choose to leave behind is not about weeds and dirty windows. And, what we choose to leave behind is important. I think about those I know who have clean windows, beautiful yards and gardens, as well as those who don’t. I just see people with different priorities, time demands, life situations and generally, varied differences in how they like or need to spend their precious time.
Life is messy; relationships can be and yes, so can yards and windows. I choose to recognize there are many fine people whose lives and relationships are rich, who have contributed greatly to making the world or environment better and have made a choice to spend their time in ways that speaks to their hearts and what is important to them.

03.30.2013

My comment is about "The New Breast Rating You Need To Know" in the April issue. I had a "normal" mammogram in February 2012. I was 48 at the time with no history of breast cancer in my family. I started going for annual mammograms when I turned 40. All "normal". In August of 2012 I found a lump in my right breast and was diagnosed with an agressive triple negative breast cancer. Turns out, my breasts are very dense. I had no idea that breast density could affect test results. Thank you More Magazine for continuing to educate women on these very important health issues.

I just read the letter from the editor about how to be an age warrior. I for one am sick of the negativity surrounding aging. Comments like "bring the subject of aging out in the open" or "we need to keep going" only supports that kind of negativity,speaking of aging as though it's a disease. I love the aging process,not everyone sees it as something we wish we could stop. Yes, it may have drawbacks but those existed in being young also. There is no perfect age.
I looked forward to turning 40 for several years, knowing at that point I would have accomplished certain things and that many of may goals will have already been met. I appreciate the wisdom and confidence that come with getting older because of life experiences. I'm no longer struggling with education, career, or family ambitions. I can focus on me now and having fun and doing anything I want or don't want.
I enjoy fashion but I'm not worried with how I'm viewed, I realize now, how clothes make me feel is what's important. I love not having to keep up appearances in any aspect of my life, I've earned where I am at in life and I will enjoy it anyway I see fit.
Yes, youth is wonderful but aging also has so many upsides and I for one embrace it! Enjoy life at every age!

I've been subscribing since I turned 40 and have not looked back. Having outgrown other magazines, I was glad to have found a place that celebrates women over 40. The last couple of issues have been different and I see references to women in their 30s. These women have countless publications offering advice and celebrating them. Your original plan was what made me subscribe. Women over 40 need their own place. Please stick to the original plan.

April issue has a lovely photo on page 14 inviting readers to enter the "shop till you drop" $5,000 shopping spree. Except the deadline to enter was February 28! Come on, who missed this one?

I am a bit behind in my reading, so my comment is actually about the February issue. I was surprised and disappointed with the article entitled "If great poets had sexted... ". I felt it was not in line with the reputation that More has or what the majority of the readers of More want to see. It seemed like something out of Cosmopolitan. Please do not let that type of article make the cut in a future More magazine. Thanks!

I am a bit behind on my More reading so this comment is actually regarding the February issue. I was surprised and disappointed to see the piece called "If great poets sexted..." This was in bad taste and did not seem appropriate for More magazine....maybe Cosmo but not More. Please clean up your act in the future! I always enjoy my "More time" but did not enjoy this article at all.

The Fashion for Grown-ups article was fun reading, but why start in the 30s (hardly grown-up) and end at 60? There are many examples of fashion-savvy women in their 70s & 80s. Please don't sell the older gals short.
Also, I was happy to see Connie Britton your cover and enjoyed reading about her. But, what's with the cheesy photos? MORE is supposed to be a magazine for women. We don't need to see Connie (or anyone else) in stilettos and provocative poses.
Please do more articles about women like Jessica Dominguez -- truly inspiring.


RoseMarie Ingleton,MD and Angela Bassett are NOT handsome, They are Beautiful!!! Ms RoseMarie Ingleton's story should have accompanied her photograph with "HER NAME" included with the photograher,so we know without confusion this beautiful Black Woman is not only beautiful but a Doctor!

I've been a subscriber to More for several years and give it as a gift to my best friend and to my mother, who is 74. I just received my April 2013 issue to see the splashy "This is What 30, 40, 50 Looks Like. I had hoped that More would be a magazine that would follow me, my mother, and my friends right along into our older years. Women 60 and over are barely recognized, if at all, in magazines. I know and admire so many women in their 60s, 70s, and even 80s who are still dynamic, attractive, and very much engaged in their lives. It seems MORE is selling out and moving in the wrong direction. A 30-year-old is just getting started on the journey, and almost every magazine on the newstand is directed towards her and women in their 20s. Your magazine is now directed to "Women of Style and Substance" rather than women 40 and over. How disappointing that you've sold out and betrayed your older readers. Yes, I realize that the actual article includes those in their 60s; but why not include women in their 70s and even older? They are the true inspirations, and they are significant, even though they apparently have no presence in this publication. I guess it really is true that women of a certain age become invisible, but I never thought More would be a publication to prove that.
