Inconsistent sizing
I have been buying Jockey for Her online for several years. Recently I bought two packages of the size 5 Elance French Cut, the same size I've purchased for years. Three pairs out of the six are too small from the two different packages. Disappointing.

Not the same anymore.
I have worn these for many years but no more. They have changed for the worse. The different fabrics, colors & patterns have very different fits. Overall the sizes have gotten smaller & the leg holes bigger so they no longer cover in back. The fit, cut, fabric & size are inconsistent within the same package as well as those purchased from different sources. The first place they wear out is where the label is sewn into the waistband, always. The fabric begins to rip & form holes around the label every time.

fit is smaller
I've worn Elance french cut size 7 for years. This order of them fits smaller and rides up. (I'm the same size I've been forever) not happy with this purchase.
June 27, 2011
I have worn the same size and purchased Jockey for years. This purchase fits very tight. It feels like the size tag is incorrect. I went back to wearing my older Jockeys same size. I am very disappointed.

Favourite Panty
Been wearing this style for years. Always a comfortable fit and no-ride up. Much better fit than the men's Elance briefs.

not as good as last time
I bought this same product last year, same size. It fits good but this time the elastic in the waist doesn't have much stretch to it. It seems the elastic was stretched out when sewed in place and doesn't have any give to it when putting them on.

Perfect everyday pair of undies!
I thoroughly enjoy wearing these French cuts almost everyday. Whether it's a relaxing day or you are out working in the yard, the comfort and support is always there. As a male, I was disappointed when they stopped offering the elance bikini for men at my local department store, so I took a chance on these and boy was that a chance worth taking! The pretty colours also show my softer side to my Significant other :)

Greatly disappointed by the "leaner" cut
Not the same as the last time I ordered. The overall fit is tighter. Had I known, I would have ordered a size larger to get a true fit. Please go back to your former cut.

Why does this not come in ivory? Is the sand color close or much darker?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although we don't offer our Elance French Cut in the color Ivory right now, I am making a note of it in our database for our merchandisers. They've been looking for consumer insights to help them in their color selection, and so we really appreciate you taking the time to contact us. You never know -- your feedback may just change our underwear (at least in terms of color offerings). In regards to your question about the color Sand, it is going to be a darker beige color. Currently, it is the closest option we have available to Ivory. Hope this helps.

What happened to the sand color in Elance? I was going to order more but it's not one of the choices anymore. It's a great color especially for the summer since it doesn't show through light weight or light color fabrics. Has the sand color been discontinued?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question.

We introduced our Elance French Cut in Sand as a special fashion assortment, part of our "one-time-only" seasonal palette. And although our forecasters thought we made enough products to last for the entire reason, we received a huge--indeed unprecedented--response from our consumers, particularly among those who received our catalog.

My supervisor checked with our manufacturing division, and unfortunately we do not have any other
Sand stock available, and because it is part of a fashion collection, there is no additional stock planned for production this year.

On the other hand, it's been so enormously popular that perhaps it may become available again (though our fashion assortments are planned more than a year in advance, so its return would not be for more than year).

Hope this helps!
I'm currently wearing size 6 in these, but they don't stay at my waist. do i need to go up to size 7?
Laurence T on Jun 19, 2015

We would need to know a bit more about the situation in order to guide you correctly. If you'd like to give one of our Personal Shoppers a call at 1-800-JOCKEY-1 (800-562-5391) we would be more than happy to assist you in this matter. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Why is size 4 not offered in this style - does this style tend to run small?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Although our Elance French Cut is not available in four right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. At this time we offer two of our Elance styles, our Bikini (style 1489) and our String Bikini (style 1483) in a size four. This style does tend to run true to size. Hope this helps!
