So long as it pertains to women, no subject is off limits for Cosmopolitan, an unabashed quality that has most definitely been a key factor in the magazine's success. What began in 1886 as a family magazine has since transformed into an icon of feminine fearlessness for contemporary women around the world. While it is widely known for its detailed coverage of sex and relationships, Cosmopolitan explores an array of topics, including social trends, fashion and beauty, pop culture and entertainment, and much more. With expert career advice, inspirational personal stories and articles on health and fitness, Cosmopolitan encourages women to follow their dreams and live a happy, well-rounded life.
Cosmo is definitely a magazine that keeps it real and lighthearted. Everytime I get this magazine in my mailbox, no matter what is going on in my life or how stressful things are, Cosmo reminds me to smile at it all. Each issue has something different to offer, but stays focused on the key things in a young woman's life-- relationships, sex, friends, style, career, health, and beyond. And the articles, whether written by journalists or readers like me, remind me to laugh at what would be considered the "bad" in life, from relationships gone sour to embarrassing moments. When I open the pages of Cosmo I feel like I'm entering my own community where I understand everything that other people are saying and vice versa. It's great to have a magazine that you can depend on to deliver, month after month. The only complaint or reservation I have about Cosmo is that at times it feels a bit redundant, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The sex articles are great, so in-depth and unreserved which I applaud. But sometimes I feel like the advice I'm reading was already given to me a few issues back. Other than that, Cosmo is a staple that has something to offer for every type of woman.
Cosmopolitan, or "Cosmo" as most of its readers refer to it as, is definitely the fashion and style magazine that has the most fun with what it does! I love how Cosmo has silly articles that make you laugh, the sex advice you've been looking for, and some of American women's most embarrassing moments from that month. Of course there are great clothes in the magazine and beautiful actresses gracing every cover, but Cosmo really is the magazine for the everyday women of every age. I got my subscription from a friend as a gift, and I thought it was the best idea. You can even send a personalized gift card for almost any occasion right through this website!
Not a month has gone by since my 18th birthday that I havn't read "Cosmo."
An especially great magazine for the '20 to 30 something' woman but a great read for all ladies, from teenagers to seniors. Trends and "coolness" in fashion and lifestyle are explored along with pertinent articles that are always either enlightening or shocking, but never dull. Cosmo is a friendly staple in my life.
Cosmopolitan (cosmo) first published in 1886. It's longevity is credited to it's constant evolving over the years. In it's infancy it had been known for works of fiction, and even for a brief foray into investigative journalism. It wasn't until 1965 under Helen Gurley Brown that the magazine truly came into it's own. It was the height of the sexual revolution and the cover of the magazine began to show a lot of cleavage. This trend continued over the years as the content of the articles began to examine topics formerly taboo of a mostly sexual nature. Cosmo today has continued along that theme as it made it's foray into the world of fashion and beauty advice. Generally aimed at women in their twenties or thirties who are single and have a career this magazine is loaded with great advice. Boyfriend advice, beauty and fashion advice even workplace advice, you can find it all in Cosmo.
