I used to look forward to buying Bella every Tuesday, excuse for a good long soak to read the real life stories and fiction, get hints and tips, read about real women of all shapes and sizes fashion and worries. Now it doesn't even warrant running a bath, as soon as you open read the few stories its over theres no depth to the mag now - Sorry Bella there's another magazine on the shelf (hope it doesn't change its format) but I enjoy the read far better… Read Full Review

I have been buying Bella magazine for years and I used to couldn't wait for a Tuesday to pick up my copy. Now, it is just like any other magazine, It is full of celebrities which we read about in any other magazine. I bought it again yesterday and that will be the last, I think there was one true to life story and that was it. Who wants to read about all these celebrities?? We want true life stories. Bella has changed drastically… Read Full Review

Used to love Bella, I bought it every week for years and years. There was just the right balance of real-life stories (which were well written), diet, advice, fashion, letters, health, beauty etc. Now it's no better than the other rubbish… Read Full Review

For the new look magazine - absolutely none.
I have been buying Bella since it first came out many moons ago. I know there have been changes made to it throughout the years but none as drastic as the most recent. It used to be a magazine that could be read by every age group, whereas now its seems to be aimed at the 20-30 age bracket. Some of the best articles you had have now been replaced with more gossip on celebrities that we can read about in numerous other magazines… Read Full Review

Bring back the old style Bella and gain back old customers and get some new ones too! The highlight of my week was to read my Bella, which I have been getting for over 20 years, but I have cancelled Bella now because I don't want to hear about celebrities and their trends. I want fiction and real life stories!… Read Full Review

I don't know why Bella has changed a winning formula but it has and will surely pay the price. I'll never buy it again after it has lost its three best features. Total rubbish now - just like all the other celeb and fashion mags.
You can't reinvent the wheel Mr Bella!… Read Full Review
