Word on the street is that Figure Magazine is ceasing publication immediately. See the letter from the Editor to the Figure readers below:
Dear Figure magazine and FigureMagazine.com readers,
Thank you for your extraordinary passion and support throughout our years of publishing Figure magazine. We are saddened to announce that as of our March/April 2009 issue, we will be ceasing publication of the magazine and shutting down the website.
This was a painful decision to make. We have shared your vision to create an empowering, inclusive place for women of all shapes to come and celebrate fashion and themselves. However, we are facing unprecedented economic times and unfortunately are unable to continue publishing.
If you are a magazine subscriber, we will be contacting you regarding your remaining issues.
You all have made Figure an exciting and dynamic community. It has truly been a joy to serve the needs of today's fashion-conscious woman through the magazine and website, and we look forward to continuing to serve you in our stores and online at www.lanebryant.com, www.fashionbug.com and www.catherines.com. We hope to see you there.
The Publishers of Figure Magazine and FigureMagazine.com
