What happened to Jockey quality?
Disaster. I've been buying Jockey for years. Now, all of a sudden, they're made in Jamaica. The cotton is MUCH thinner than it used to be. Two pair in my pack were way too small -- I measured, an inch less wide than my old pair in the same size! Another pair was too high -- cut like briefs -- almost an inch TALLER than my old pair. This is nonsense. I complained to Jockey and got no response.
Jockey--please take the hint!
Jockey all-cotton hipsters are the ONLY underwear I have worn for 30? years. I unfortunately agree with other long-time wearers that the quality has tanked in recent years. The fabric is flimsier, the fit is not consistent, and the colors offered aren't as nice. How sad to see what was a premier product go so far down. I don't feel like ordering them anymore, but I don't know what I can possibly replace them with...

Poor quality control
I bought two 3-packs of this style and found only one in each pack that was sized correctly. The others were all cut much bigger and/or had been made with stretched-out elastic. I have been wearing Jockey classic hipsters for years (always the same size) so know how they should fit. Very disappointing.

Not as good as the old version
I loved the Elance hipsters and was disappointed when they were discontinued. On my last shopping trip, I was so happy to see that they were back. However, this new version is not as comfortable as the previous version. The back of the legs seems to be cut higher so there is not as much coverage in the seat. The waistband also seems to dig into my skin, which is not true of the previous version. The fabric is also much thinner. I'm very disappointed, not sure why they changed when the original was so good!

I have bought the Jockey brand for myself as well as for my children for 25 years. the past 4 years I have been dissappointed in the quality of the material used. It is lighter in weight, does not hold the shape of the panty as it did before and tears easily. I have a hole in one of my new pairs that I have just recently purchased. How it got there I do not know. I loved wearing Jockeys because of comfort and style, and thought that if I purchased them on-line instead of having a difficult time finding the style I wanted in the department store, I would get the style I love and hopefully the extra $ I paid would be worth my time. I was disappointed to find the same cheap material (in my opinion)and hope it will change soon. I will try the on-line store one more time and hope the quality will improve. Thank you for asking and I hope you to fix the material. Jockey Brand has always had the best product and that is why it will be difficult to move away from it. Sincerly, Lynn Marie Hubach

Another trusted brand goes south
I've worn the same style (hip hugger) and the same size (6) for many, many years. Now suddenly they're way too small. I hate to give up on Jockey, but I can no longer depend on this brand. I'm giving my recent purchase to charity.

No longer lives up to its reputation
I've bought Jockey French cut and hipsters for nearly two decades. The quality has deteriorated, the selection of colors has narrowed, and the fit is not the same. I weigh the same; new size 5 is a half inch smaller than old size five. I bought new French cuts a few months ago, and after 4 or 5 washings the elastic band began to unravel. On the hipsters the cotton fabric wears away quickly at the waistband where the Jockey tag is. No more Jockeys for me. It's too bad. They used to be a perfect fit and quite long-lasting.

my only choice for 25+ years
I have been purchasing these for 25+ years. 3 of the last 6 packages I bought were not up to par. I noticed that depending on where they are made, they fit differently. I paid full retail ([$]per package) and now have 9 pairs that I can't wear. I can't return them to the retailer as I always wash them before I wear them.

The shape has changed--for the worse!!
I have worn Elance Hipsters for several years and agree with all the negative reviews by other long-term customers of this product. It appears Jockey has changed the fit and shrunk the amount of fabric it uses for all the Elance Hipsters (at least size 5), but especially the white ones from Costa Rica. I measured my old pairs, which I love, and my new ones, which are very uncomfortable/too small (although I've lost 15 pounds!!!). The new fronts are bit larger than the old (for fat stomachs in a size 5???), but the new backs (where the buttocks must fit) are MUCH smaller. The backs have 2 inches less fabric in width at the top (hip) and are only 8 inches from crotch seam to top; whereas the older pairs are 9.5 inches. I will need to look for another brand because I need 100% cotton and below-the-waist elastic due to stomach ulcers. I am extremely disappointed! They used to be wonderful!!!

Loved the old style/ cut.
Love, love, love the old style. I bought 6 packs a couple of years ago from [...] and made a few purchases when I found these on sale at [...] all in a size 6. However, I just purchased 3 packs this weekend and found they are all to tight/small. The leg is cut higher in the back which offers less rear coverage and they ride up. The fabric is thinner and the leg and waist band fabric is not tucked under and sewn leaving a raw edge of fabric. Liked the old style/fabric/cut much better. Will return and buy a larger size as I am allergic to latex and these are the only panties I can find with a covered band.

It doesn't get any better - fit - wash - just an all day friend!
P S on May 27, 2016
Traditionally, the fit of the Hipster is outstanding, and the quality is the same. However, after reading the most recent reviews I am concerned with, and hope Jockey has addressed, the weight of the material and consistency in size. We shall see : ) I have been a loyal customer for many years. I hope that continues to be the case.

How does Elance differ from classic? I am interested in hipster panties.
Louise W on Jan 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've checked my labels....they don't help. I am certain there is a difference...some cotton is stronger, softer, and more durable than the other, but can't tell which is which since the label is NOT helpful. The last purchase I made was about a year ago, at KOHL's. I've lots of these. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE! My suggestion, since I can't be really helpful, is to buy a pair/pkg of each and see. That could be expensive. So, try to open a pair/pkg of each and feel and see the difference ; check at the trim below the belly button. I think you will be able to tell. Good luck...I love these pants! S.
No exposed elastic? Is elastic waistband covered?
Tamar E on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No exposed elastic. Covered waistband. However, I found these to be smaller than I had expected compared to what I thought was a similar product that I bought in a store, which fit perfectly. I bought the same size on line and they were too small.
Why do you not make these jockey hipsters in a size 8 or 9?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you so much for your question, and I do apologize for the confusion. We do offer our Jockey Elance Hipster in both size 8 and 9, but those sizes are considered Plus Size. You can find them at the following link: Hope this helps.
We're looking for more Jockey brand women's briefs - 100% cotton, white, covered elasti waist and legs, size 7. The tag reads: RN# 61683, CA#23638. We can't tell which style to order on-line. Can you help us with that? Thank you!
Melinda S on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question. Unfortunately, many different styles of underwear (t-shirts and briefs, for example) have the exact same RN and CA numbers. Those numbers only tell where the product was made. But not to worry, if you are looking for a 100% cotton, covered waistband brief, it will be our Jockey Elance Brief. You can find them at:
Why doesn't Jockey Elance Hipster come in a size 8 anymore?
