I hope I'm not going to regret ordering this magazine.

Regarding the "This is what [age] looks like" column, would your subjects consider being photographed without makeup? I just think it would be a more genuine celebration of women if we didn't have to hide behind makeup.
In regards to the latest issue, With Angie Harmon, on the cover. Why did she feel the need to say when she first had sex with her husband? What relevance does this have to anything and does she not feel that's a bit personal? She voiced concern about her kids living in LA and so they moved. Morals start at home, Angie!

I am rather disappointed in your decision to encourage younger women to subscribe to More. There are already dozens of publications dedicated to them that have almost no relevance to me. Their fashions, their parenting, their workouts, their concerns already seem to be the prime focus of retailers and advertisers and publishers, and I was pleased to have one magazine that bucked the trend.
I will wait and see; but if you abandon your focus, I believe many older women will be gone.
Hoping for the best,
Tried your magazine. 160 pages $5.00. Paid the same price for In style and Marie Claire. 700+ pages. Vogue. $6.00. 900 pages. Content of More...not interesting. Guess there is not much to say to your group. I will not buy again.

I find it hypocritical of Angie Harmon to be “devastated” by internet backlash to her political comments and then use More as a forum to blast all Democrats (“the so-called tolerant party”) for the intolerant remarks of her detractors. But, then again, you did identify her as a member of the so-called party of negativity.
I was attracted to the article by More’s subtitle “On Living Happily On Your Own Terms,” but found it uncharacteristically bordering on sensationalism since that was the only example you provided of Ms. Harmon’s uniqueness. After all, doesn’t More celebrate women every month for their sense of humor, commitment to faith and family and dedication to professionalism?
Dear MORE Magazine,
A few years ago as a gift, my mom gave me a subscription to MORE magazine and every year she renews it for me as a gift. She too, subscribes to MORE and recently we had a very interesting ‘MORE’ discussion.
I recently turned 50 and every month I absorb myself in your magazine - finding amazing articles on health, fashion, and everything in between. My amazing mom, who is the most beautiful 75 year young woman I know, is quite disheartened that although you emphasize that MORE is for women of ‘style and substance’, your editors seem to neglect and appreciate the women in this world that are overflowing with style and substance after 50.
She is gorgeous and elegant like a Tiffany’s diamond. She travels the world and has had a love affair with my dad for almost 60 years. She still travels to other countries on getaways with her girlfriends from high school and she talks to my daughters about everything under the sun from birth control and sex issues - to fashion, and choosing a good mate in life.
She can be as elegant as Audrey Hepburn when wearing flannel at the cabin, and turns heads when she walks in a room at a formal event.
So I ask MORE to please DO more for women of substance that are 60, 70 and even 80. These spectacular women are those that we, in our 30s, 40s, and 50s, admire so deeply. Give them good reason to value your wonderful magazine.
With Sincere Appreciation,
