Big guys want style, too!
I love string bikinis. I'm not trying to look sexy or anything--at 6'3" & 245 lbs I'm never going to be confused with the guys modeling these things--the simple truth is I just don't like a lot of "material". I can't stand boxers or trunks or the traditional "tighty whitey" styles. Most manufacturers dont seem to understand that us big guys might like something a little skimpier that offers support and comfort, but Jockey got these right! I used to Jockey Sport string bikinis MANY years ago and hated it when the line was discontinued, but these Elance strings are the best I've found since then. Thanks, Jockey!
(P.S. Some of us guys like colors other than blue, black, white and gray!)

Keeps me cool and wicks away moisture during games
Great for working on suntan, traveling, working out, around the house or in the garden/yard.
Made of 100% cotton and NOT binding.
Who could ask for anything better.

Not The Same...
I've bought this style of underwear for the past 5 years. They WERE the most comfortable, but about 1 to 2 years ago Jockey must have switched manufacturer. Instead of a white band/white briefs, the band went to black. Of course the color change had no affect, but the fit was no longer "full coverage". I have a 33" waist, yet needed to order an XL to make sure both the front and back had the right coverage. Seems like (if they got a new manufacturer or vendor for these) that the company decided to scrimp on the material by cutting off a good 1/2" off the material (which I'm sure could add up to big money). Unfortunately this means I need to find a new company that makes this style but has man-sized coverage. Sorry Jockey... but you need to watch what's going on (a lot more "quality control").

The best in comfort and style
The string bikini has been my underwear of choice since it was introduced in the late 1980's. My underwear drawer has a weeks supply of this brief plus one or two more Jockey styles. I have seen several changes from a narrower waist band to a wider heavier one which was superior to the present one. With the string you almost feel like you are not wearing anything becasue of the freedom of nothing on your legs. PLEASE do not stop making this style. I have worn a lot of Jockey styles but this one is the BEST!

Jockey string bikini 2-pk
I was very pleased when my Jockey string bikini arrived. I purchased 4 pair and they arrived very quickly. I love wearing these underwear. They fit very nicely. I like walking around the house with nothing on but my Jockey bikinis. I wish that you would go back to putting a white band on the top instead of the black. They feel great and I love the cotton. Thanks again and tell your customer service department that when I call them all the people are very polite and helpful. Thanks for bringing the Jockey string bikini back in cotton. Floyd the DJ

simple support makes this one a winner
I normally wear boxer briefs but found my workouts in the gym to be missing some support. I decided to give these a try, and oh what a difference! I am glad I did try these and already bought another package. I like the extra firm support these bikinis offer however I would not consider them a 'string bikini' (but that's just me). The elastic band is a good method of keeping the underwear in place during high intensity movements. The full coverage backside is indeed better and stays in its place. I may even consider wearing these in the tanning both.

Fix me please:-) :-)
1. Need more of a pouch in front
2. Need single panel in front or install cooler mash panels

This should fix the problem for this item

This could be a real seller ////but please fix it :-) :-) :-) :-)

More sport than leisure
In comparison to the old Life brief, which was a true string bikini(3/8 inch band),the new Elance brief is basically a jock, due to its 1 1/2 inch band and minimal pouch.It really holds you in, which is why I recommend it for sports. Sizing up could be a solution, but also could result in the brief riding too high for a bikini style.

I own Nothing but Jockey Elance!
I use Elance for everything--casual wear, formal wear, running, working out at the gym. At the gym, the snug, comfortable fit doubles as both underwear and jock. My wife loves the look of Elance, too. They're great!

I have used them for 20 plus years and there is nothing like comfort and style.
There should be a reduced price for quantity just like other brands have.

Why did you stop making men's string bikini underwear ? Actually you and everyone else. People still like the string bikini (not thong or jock strap).
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we stopped making your favorite Jockey item. Due to poor sales we were forced to discontinue the style number 1005. We are constantly looking at consumer feedback to drive our future product decisions. I will pass your suggestion on to our product development team.
Does jockey still sell elance bikini for men?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news but we have discontinued the Elance String Bikini. I will pass your suggestion on to our product development team and hopefully we will bring them back in the future.
Why would Jockey cancel such a popular style? Jockey has lost my business after 25 years.
Mark B on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we discontinued your favorite style, Mark. Thank you for your suggestion tha we bring it back. I am passing your feedback along to our product development team and hopefully we will bring them back.
Elance is only available in a size small for months, what's the story?
Jim T on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jim, I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad new but the men's Elance collection (including the string bikini) has been discontinued and the size small is remaining stock avaialble. I will pass a suggestion on to our product development team that we bring back the Elance String bikini.
when will more XL elegance string bikini for men arrive?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the Men's Elance collection (including the string bikini) has been discontinued. We will not be getting any more stock of the size XL for this item.
Count us in on the disappointed customers who miss the men's sting bikini. It's the most comfortable option for men who need full range of movement. Is it possible to bring them back?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your email. I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Men's Elance String Bikini. It was, alas, discontinued due to poor sales performance. I ran a quick scan on inventory in our warehouse and our outlet stores (sometimes we can find discontinued products there). But no luck: there's not a single piece to be found. Sorry about that.

I wish I could refer you to something else, but unfortunately, we have nothing else quite like it. It was unique (which no doubt also explains your determination to find it amid our array of other products).

Meanwhile, we will pass your feedback on to our merchandising and sales staff as products are often brought back when consumer demand is great enough.
You made a big deal via today's email blast that Elance is back. I went to order the string bikinis, but there is nothing available but black. If they're back, why only one color? I don't care for black ones.
RICHARD A on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question. We will be offering the Jockey Men's Elance String Bikini in white as well, but because we received such a demand to bring this style back, we are putting the colors available online as soon as we received. We ended up receiving the color black before we received white. We should hopefully have the white available in the next few weeks.
what colors are the letters on the waist band?
mark e on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The lettering featured on our Elance String Bikini will be the same color as the waistband. In this case, it would be a matte black. Hope this helps!
Is the lettering black on the black waistband per the photo or white per the description?
jayh3 on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. The lettering will be in white, as in the product description on the product listing. I do apologize for the confusion.
The new Jockey string bikini shows a black waistband, but the description says white like the last offering???
A shopper on Jul 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! At this time our Elance String Bikini features a black waistband and white body as pictured when selecting the color pack white. Hope this helps!
why don't you make the string bikini with a contoured pouch for those of us that are endowed or larger than most? I love the Elance string bikini but need more room.
Morgan T on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I have forwarded your suggestion to our design and sales teams. We often depend on the insights of customers such as your-self to help guide our company’s efforts to ensure we satisfy the needs of our customers. Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to share with us. It really does help!
Why is small the only option for months for Elance® String Bikini?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Great news! Jockey men’s Elance products are back! Just click here:'s%20elance
It says this is a new product. Is this the product you discontinued a couple years ago? Is it back?
Bill C on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! I'm happy to inform you, that due to overwhelming customer feedback, we have brought our entire Men's Elance collection back to our offerings here at as an online exclusive collection. These are indeed the same styles you have enjoyed for years!
can I get these in a store in s jersey 08012 ?
