BRING BACK SIZE 8 STRING BIKINIS!!!
I am a VERY DISAPPOINTED customer. I've purchased these underwear for YEARS and now they are no longer available in size 8. I previously wore 7, and can no longer fit in them. They have been made smaller recently (I've lost 40 lbs - it's not me!) and my family has had the same problem. We will no longer be purchasing from Jockey because they only cater to smaller women apparently and not all of their loyal customers. We would purchase several packages if they were brought back. Anyone else having the same issue?

Disappointed on wear
I have worn this style for years and love it BUT the last two times I have replenished my supply, I find that the fabric over the elastic wears out within a few months. The rest of the panty is fine, but it makes one feel unkempt to have exposed elastic at the waistband. I can't see myself purchasing these again, yet they are my favorite style of panty in the world. Please get a better manufacturer. Try a company in the USA and have stringent quality standards.

NOT What They Used to Be
These were a classic sexy long-wearing bikini. I've been wearing them for 20+ years. Lately, I've been sadly disappointed in what Jockey is producing. I've noticed that the last ones I purchased are wearing out faster than ones I bought in 2003! The new ones are sewn poorly, irregularly shaped, the fabric over the waistband wears out quickly, and the fabric is thinner. These are a cheap imitation of a formerly great product. PLEASE Bring back the quality & quality control! I'd be happy to pay a couple dollars more to get back the quality. Before I knew & loved what I was purchasing, now I open the package & examine each pair before I leave the store.[...]

Love the fit. Love the feel.
I love the fit and feel of this string bikini. I bought three pair while on a short notice trip and enjoyed them so much I bought more when I got home. I wish they made these for men.
June 24, 2011
Comfortable and last forever
I started wearing these panties over 10 years ago when Jockey stopped making essentially the same panties for men. Found these after some trial and error and have worn them ever since. I wear them every day.
February 1, 2008
perfect panties
Theses Jockey string bikinis are the only underwear I wear. They are so comfortable you never even notice you have them on. The soft, feminine feel doesn't ride up and end up halfway up your booty, they stay in place perfectly so you never have to adjust them. Wearing them every day can be a little sexy and cute at the same time. I love the bright pink ones I wear most of the time.

What? No size 8!!!!
It is bad enough to have gained about 15 lbs. Now I have to change styles of underwear?! Why not in size 8, even if I had to special order and pay double the price I would.
I have worn this style for over 20 years and cannot find anything even close. They are comfortable and reasonably durable. They don't show over the waistband of my pants and the lines at the leg are natural. Nothing else does this!!
October 10, 2014
quality continues to deteriorate
been using these panties for years-quality has continued to deteriorate...sizes are inconsistent, not only between packages but within same package

Elance
This is a great product. Sad to see it is no longer available in an 8. Extending this size to an 8 would be my only request.
August 21, 2014
Too small
I've worn Elance string bikinis for as long as I can remember. They used to be very sturdy. Now they are made out of a much thinner fabric and wear out far too quickly. It started when the 'Jockey' tags on the front went from a loop to a single tag. I had high hopes for this new set because the tags were once again a loop with the new Jockey logo. In addition, this latest batch I bought seems a good 1/2" to 1" smaller in the waist than the older pairs I have. I'm not sure it's possible that all my underwear stretched that much. The sevens I bought feel like sixes. One final complaint I have about these is the odor. I washed them once before wearing, but they still have a lingering odor from the dye or something. Wash them twice before wearing.

Love the fit and have worn this style for years! My only complaint is that the material on the bikini on the hip seems to unravel faster than it ever did before. I am giving a chance to one more round to see if they have corrected the problem.

Does this come in size 8?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we no longer make the Elance String Bikini in the size 8. We stopped making them in the plus sizes due to poor sales. I will put your suggestion through to our product development and hopefully we will make them in the future.
Why don't you make the string bikini underwear in a larger size? I love this underware and have been wearing it for 25 + years but I have also gotten a little bigger since then.
A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Although our Elance String Bikini is not available in plus sizes right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. So, they've asked us to forward on to them any feedback which would tend to confirm that hypothesis. So I will be forwarding your online product review on to them for review. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Do the string bikinis come in a size 8?
Susan B on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry but we no longer make the Elance String Bikini in a size 8. I will pass on your suggestion that we make them in the size 8. Hopefully we will bring them back.
Why would jockey discontinue the cotton string bikini in size 8? It was one of the best things going. A very disappointed customer.
A shopper on Feb 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question and I am sorry for the disappointment. I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Plus Size Elance Brief, which included the size 8. 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.
Why is the Elance string bikini no longer offered in size 8? I definitely have some that I purchased in the past, but now cannot find it online.

Where did size 8 go? I want to order more.
A shopper on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Jockey Women's Queen Elance String Bikini, which included sizes 8-11. It was, alas, discontinued due to poor sales performance.

I will forward a suggestion to our design and sales team that we bring back this style, or that we add size add larger sizes to our current Elance String Bikini offering. 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!
Where did the size 8 go to? this is the only underwear I have warn for years and now I go back to get more and they have gone, Do you only cater to the smaller sized people? I'm dissapointed

why does the material pull away exposing the elastic on the elance's?
Becki B on Dec 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have been buying these for years, and while the rest of the panties stays in great shape, the material on the top elastic wears away. I don't know why. But I keep buying them, because they are very comfortable and just accept the fact that the material will wear out.
I am very disappointed the string bikinis do not come in size 8 or larger. Not everybody is a size 4. I used to wear these all the time. But like a few ladies already commented, with years and age, our bodies change. I don't understand why you think we would not want to wear this style. They were my favorites. Why don't you make these in larger sizes?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although our Elance String Bikini is not available in a size 8 at this time, I have forwarded a suggestion along to our design team that we bring this style back those larger sizes as I know they depend heavily on the input of customers such as your-self. Thank you for your patience and understanding, as well as for your feedback.
I really love the leopard print string bikini. I don't see these anymore. Are they still available? Would love to have a three pack of the leopard print. It is soooooo cute!
texas_guy on Feb 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. We introduced our Elance String Bikini in Leopard Print 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
Leopard Print 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).
I have selected the color. But when I try to add it to bag, it tells me to select a color. What am I not doing?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: try selecting the size first. Maybe the color you want is out of stock in your size?
Hello, I've worn the Jockey string bikini for several years. As I go to reorder it gets more and more difficult to find my size. I am fortunate to be a size 3.....and have been for many years....help where can I find a size 3? Thanks
A shopper on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although our Elance String Bikini is not available in size 3 right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. So, they've asked us to forward on to them any feedback which would tend to confirm that hypothesis. So I will be forwarding your online product review on to them for review.
does the jockey elance string bikin come in a size 8 ?
Faye H on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question.

I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Jockey Women's Plus Size Elance String Bikini, which included the size 8. 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.

Our current Jockey Elance String Bikini only goes up to size 7.

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.

Hope this helps!
do they run large or small ??
A shopper on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. From the feedback that we have received from customers, the Jockey Elance String Bikini's do run true to size. If you do purchase a package, and they do not fit comfortably, please let us know. We do stand behind all of our products 100%.
can you get string bikinis in XL ?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. Our Jockey Elance collection is sold using numeric sizing. If you are looking for a size XL, that would be a size 7 for the Jockey Elance String Bikini, which is available on our website. Hope this helps.
The panties are listed at 9.99 but come up as 19.50 in my cart;why?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm so sorry for the confusion, but as soon as we put select colors on sale like that, we get an immediate response from shoppers. So the number of products available in colors at the discounted rate is constantly changing from second to second. And so they sell out quickly. To find the colors that are on sale just click where it says Additional colors on sale in red underneath the product description on the right hand side of the screen. Again, sorry for the difficulty.

Will you ever go back to quality cotton? Each time I replenish my supply they wear worse! They don't; even start out good any more. I would pay a bit more for better cotton.
