    I didn’t get any ads but I’m not feeling any of these. Not flattering.

    I got to this page through an email from BurdaStyle. Ads on every image. I don’t even remember what the patterns looked like, I was so annoyed trying to scroll and see past all the unrelated ads. I even have a Spanish language ad. If you are going to include foreign language ads, you’d have better luck with German or French for me. But WAY too many ads.

    When I view the site on my PC, there are ads on every image. When I view it on my phone or tablet, no ads. This is probably the issue for most people. They are super obnoxious and make the site run really slow.

    I love the empire waist dress with box pleat. The leg o mutton sleeves are gorgeous. It would look so cute & 70s with a turtleneck underneath it & a pair of boots.

    The ads are either covering the entire photo or else a bar at the bottom of the photo. I’m pretty peeved that there’s an ad covering the bottom half of my id photo on my Wall page :/

    I’m not excited by any of these designs. The 12/14 issue was just not for me. Also, I don’t like the way that the editor puts together the Burda designs on the 2 page spread in every issue. It looks like it’s helter-skelter-thrown together – to me, anyway. Nothing goes with anything. The accessories are way to expensive…Hermes is not not in my price range.

    I am in US and do not see any ads. I navigated directly to the page through main URL. I agree with the previous statements about this collection. They are not very flattering.

    Puffy sleeves and empire waist? I can usually find something I like, but these just aren’t flattering and it seems like I’ve seen those patterns before in your magazine. That is of course understandable, but seriously there is tons of clothes out there that would be fun to make and would look more fashion forward.

    No ads ever here. Collection not Burda’s best…

    I just don’t find these looks flattering. I really don’t like the dresses; they just don’t seem to fit well, particularly the sleeves (dress with front box pleat). Also I agree about the very annoying ads on all the Burda pages. I had already written to Burda about these.

    Wow, I HATE THE ADS NOW!!!! This is so sad the Burda has stooped so low to put ads on every image. I used to love perusing this site, but the ads are nuts.

    On the collection, it is okay, nothing thrilling here and too many sacks.

      But…there aren’t ads everywhere. You might have a virus Ariana. And use adblock just in case I am wrong and it’s country specific ad spamming x

      I don’t see the ads now. I got here through the burda facebook page, maybe that did it.

      I get ads on every single picture too, and have been for a few weeks. How are people getting rid of this? In case it’s country-specific, I’m in the US. I’d really rather not have to go through the facebook page if possible; is that the only way to avoid them?
