    I have a love-hate relationship with Her World. Love because of the amount of information (plus gossip) they can pack into each issue every month. Hate because of its size - it is getting difficult to hold it up to read due to its thickness and weight.

    Also hate because the price has been steadily increasing, but then again so has the other magazines.

    The contents are a good mix of news bites for the modern women with just the right amount of gossip without being too tabloid-ish.

    Keep it up SPH but the price is an increasingly deterrent for me to buy it! Have more promotions too!

      One of the longest running Women's magazine in Singapore.

      Over the years, the thickness of the magazine has increased, however there are more advertisements than actual content.

      A reader would typically have to flip through at least 10 pages before reaching some real content, and it seems that many advertisers have bought lots of space on the right hand side, so much so that one would have to keep reading the content on the left page. This disrupts the actual reading pleasure and pace.

      I have stopped reading the magazine because 1. Too many ads 2. Articles are quite repetitive. Browse any foreign magazines and there are definitely some topics which a certain perspective have been covered. 3. Relevance of product recommendation: Targeted at the high earning, mature female who like the standard commercial over-the-counter brands

        Hmm... come to think of it, most of the female mag are like that. Full of ads. Mostly those fashion mag (both men and female) have the same problem.

        I think most of the magazines from the big publishing houses are too focused on the advertising dollars, so much so that they ignore the key attraction initially: content, content, content
