When I was a bit younger, I subscribed to Marie Claire and it was the one magazine that didn't make me want to scream because of too much sex advice (like Cosmo), too much militant feminism (Ms.), or with everything being beauty and fashion related (almost all women's magazines!).
There was something wonderful about this magazine for a young woman to read. So when I picked it up again a few months ago, I was saddened to see what direction they had chosen to go with it. Might be your style, but it isn't mine. It's just a bit too trashy anymore, the look is very sharp. I feel like perhaps they are trying to be a women's issues mag but mixing it in with how to please your man and what bikini to wear this season and it just doesn't work. I miss the old Marie Claire of ten years ago!!
Irrelevant and disappointing
The writers and editors of Marie Claire seem to be out of touch with what is actually important. The articles seem irrelevant and immature at times, which is sad because I'm 24. This is just another caddy womens magazine. I am very disappointed because I had expected more. With that said, I will not be re-newing my subscription after the year is up.
Very Poor Customer Service
Very disappointing! Ordered this as a gift for a friend and was promised that it would arrive in four to six weeks. After double that time....still nothing!
Never a big fan...
Marie Claire's editors allowed the hateful blog denigrating overweight people to be posted, they have left it on the website, they have taken no action against the author, and they have not made any meaningful apology or response. There are many other magazines to choose from - will stick with Glamour!
Promotes hatred towards people of size!
After a nasty hate filled blog post on Marie Claire's website, I will no longer subscribe to this publication until their editor and the author of the blog post are dismissed!
No edit of hate filled articles.
It's a shame that the editors of Marie Claire did not have Maura Kelly edit her blog post on "fatties", but now they will have to deal with the backlash. Would never support a magazine that is so hypocritical and poorly run.
I AM SICK OF RECEVING DAMAGED MAGAZINES. YOU CAN NOT GET THIS MAGAZINE THROUGH THE MAIL. IT IS ALWAYS TORN UP AND DAMAGED BADLY. I WILLO NOT RENEW ANY MORE UNTIL THEY START TO PUT THEM IN PLASTIC AND MAKE IT EASLIER FOR YOU TO GET REPLACEMENTS.
I ordered this subsciption in June, and it's now mid-September....I have yet to see a single magazine.
Marie Claire not up to par.
This is under my husbands name because he ordered it for me. Compaired to the other mags in this area it falls short.
