Rated 3 out of 5Â by AnnaT Same size, less fabric!
I bought several pairs of these briefs a few years ago, and loved them. When I needed more, I ordered the exact same size as I did before. Right out of the package, they looked smaller than the previous version. When I put a pair on, indeed, they were not as generously cut as they had been before; they were snug. After washing, however, it's another story. Out of the 6 pairs of briefs, 3 or 4 of them shrank enough that it's uncomfortable to wear them; the other 2 are tolerable. If ordering again, I'd order at least 1 size, possibly 2, bigger than I need to allow for the reduced fabric in the briefs and for shrinkage. Very disappointing!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by CurvyTXMom Great product has changed for worse
I have been buying these for several years, both at the store and on-line. They used to be comfortable and well made. Well, I have to now agree with one of the reviewers who warned that they were cut "smaller" -- except that they are not so much cut smaller as they are now cut more like hip-hugger style. I didn't want a hip hugger style, I wanted a full brief. When a customer wants a full brief, that means that we are not interested in a more fashion-forward, low rise version of what we used to be comfortable with. What is Jockey thinking? I probably won't onder these again and will switch to another brand.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by dsct Fabric is rough.
I have worn the Jockey Elance brief for many years. I just purchased another pack and am very disappointed. The cotton fabric is not soft like the ones I currently have.. Also the fit is a bit more snug (no I have not gained weight!). I noticed the new briefs were made in Honduras while my older ones were made in India. I don't know if that's why the fabric feels rough in these new ones. I will need to return these!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CrankyOldShopper Good quality but I ordered the blue assortment. I received arghhh 1 pair of Polka Dots. BLUE polka dots...ahem. Obviously I am looking for value and comfort and a bit of style BUT... polka dots...really? What if I am in an accident and end up in the ER? I fear they won't treat me because I lack any style whatsoever! So, 2 pair for the price of 3 The picture is wrong ( even the blues are incorrect. Another story for another day ) I didn't bother to check back on my order the day they arrived. Washed them up and blamed myself for not really looking before sending the order. I supppose the polka dots should make me give it a minus star rating but quality is good for price. Be careful. Tough world to shop in these days. This is why I am so cranky :)
