The only major complaint with this item is that the stitching in the current white/blue line color is abrasive inside the leg cut and can cause chaffing. I have not yet tried all the colors but that is one issue that Jockey should pay attention to for this product to succeed. The same problem occurred in the later productions of the Elance bikini, especially toward the end.
It would be good if Jockey would offer color packaging such that both garments are the same color, as some of the choices require purchasing an undesirable color to obtain a great one.
I hope to see this product for many years to come.
In fact the way this L-R Cotton Stretch Bikini is designed/manufactured its waist band is most comfortable and where I usually wear an XL with the Nylon/Spandex product I needed to buy Large instead for this product.
Also, I am glad that Jockey manufactures more than the color Black. I still haven't seen the Orange Rose/Peacock colors in any of the three NJ Outlet Stores (Jackson, Flemington and Tinton Falls) where I shop. Hopefully, they will soon have these in other colors.
Two other major sources of COMFORT with the J L-R Cotton Stretch Bikini: it is tagless and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the Cotton fabric does not contribute to "Chafing" like the Nylon male briefs. Cotton Breathes Better.
After I purchased my first two two-pack pairs (at the Outlet Store I purchased at least another 2 or 3 two-packs of the J L-R Cotton Stretch Bikini.
Buying in the Outlet Stores also provides greater discounts on Jockey Merchandise, regardless of the item/gender you are purchasing.
I wish Jockey would add more Outlet Stores than the present three (Jackson, Flemington and Tinton Falls) locations in New Jersey.
There should be stores in either Cherry Hill or Deptford
(both heavily populated South West Jersey towns), Hamilton Mall in Atlantic County (outskirts of Atlantic City
but in very safe location), Morristown (Morris County), Bergen or Paramus Mall (Bergen County) and North Brunswick-East Brunswick-South Brunswick Region (Middlesex County). These locations are very densely populated so there would be a "high traffic volume generated to draw upon merchants to purchase Jockey Merchandise!

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.
Not even close. When are you bringing the elance 100% cotton bikini back??
There is a front panel (no fly) that has doubled up fabric for more coverage and support. Not sheer or see through but I must admit I have not tried these in white. I can't imagine the white are see through because of the double fabric front panel. I also note that the fit is better than others I've tried due to the stretch fabric containing 5% spandex. Breathable, seams are comfortable as is the waistband.
I hope this helps.
And Grey, Black and White, Grey and Grey. And RED. ANNNND three packs! SO JOCKEY needs to offer Elance AGAIN! Poor sales...really. Couldn't carry style till they cycled back in favor? Thanks for nothing Jockey! What's WRONG their your marketing people? The CEO making the product choices? Finally, Jockey needs to start making their products Only in the U.S.A. again!
Our product design team has been monitoring popular merchandising trends, along with consumer feedback like yours, and so we are experimenting with more three-packs. There definitely is something to be said for the value proposition when each package contains a larger quantity of merchandise. I'll forward your online product review along to our design team as an additional source of information.
On behalf of all of us here at Jockey, I want to assure you that we respect your concerns regarding preference for manufacturing in the USA. And so this feedback is compiled and included in feedback reports to senior management.
Also, we are looking to bring back the men's Elance Collection. They should hopefully be available by the end of the month on Jockey.com.
Hope this helps!
But, the good news is that we have been informed that this style should be back available sometime in July as a Jockey.com exclusive. Hope this helps.
