Great! They're back!
Very happy that Jockey has brought these classics back. I've been wearing them for over 30 years. No underwear is more comfortable. Welcome back!

Bring Back the Elance Bikinis
I bought these for the style and kept wearing them for the comfort. I hope you decide to bring this classic style back. There is a market for this product still. I tried other brands and none compare to the Jockey elance bikinis.

KEEP THIS BIKINI!!
Did I just read that the Jockey Elance bikini is being discontinued? PLEASE DO NOT DO THAT! I wear a lot of styles of underwear; the Elance bikini is my favorite. I realize that boxers and boxer briefs are the favorite style of a lot of guys today, but some good, solid advertising might get modern guys to try out the Elance bikinis. There are a LOT of guys who are loyal to Elance. Please don't take them away from us.

HUGE mistake to discountinued this - please bring it back
Jockey made a huge mistake when they discontinued this model without a comparable replacement option. PLEASE bring this model back into production.

Most comfortable
Most comfortable underwear I've ever found. Been buying them since they first appeared. Very disappointed to learn that they have been discontinued. The low-rise briefs that Jockey suggests as an alternate just don't compare. I wish Jockey would reconsider and bring them back into production.

bring them back, new style is awful
I've been wearing the Elance Bikini for many years now and am very disappointed to hear that they have been discontinued. My wife purchased the "low-rise" bikini in its place and they fall woefully short of the Elance. Whoever made the decision to discontinue this product line should be fired. I will try to find this same style somewhere else and perhaps another brand will earn a loyal customer like myself.

Best Underwear Ever Made
I'm really upset that the Elance bikinis have been discontinued! I've used this style and brand almost exclusively since I was in high school in the late '70s. I continue using them because they are comfortable and stylish and I'm glad that over the years I've purchased most new sets of colors and patterns that were released so that I still have many to wear. I feel Jockey let them grow boring and then stopped supporting/marketing them. If Jockey had kept up with vibrant colors and interesting patterns they would have been able to draw new customers and keep old customers.

Glad Elance is back
Now all Jockey has to do is get beyond the whitey-tighty blandness and produce some in fun prints as it does with other styles.
July 16, 2015
Great briefs
I own several pairs of Jockey bikinis, but the Elance are my favorite. I find them extremely comfortable and the fit is just right.

I like the Elance because of the fit and appearance. The thing to remember is they run a little small. I have a 37 waist but I have to get a ex-large. Not a problem for me now because I know that.

Will these briefs make vpl in compression pants?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I never wore compression shorts but I can say that they don't show under clingy polyester gym shorts. I'm surprised that you're wearing compression shorts and concerned about the outline of your briefs (not panties) showing. Maybe you should wear a boxer brief under your compression shorts.
Why can't they have the same crotch as women's panties ?

Can I wear these by themselves on the beach?
Danny on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on which beach, but I'd say so. These bikinis are close to the style and fit of Speedo and Tyr suits. That's why I like them. They may not stay on if you body surf. Some public pools and gyms may say 'no', so check first. Bill
Jennifer, I have noticed and read evaluations about most all Jockey's Products and most of the Negative Reviews (way too many) also seem to address the PROBLEMS OF SKIMPY AND BUY A SIZE UP. QUALITY WISE- THE MATERIAL IS SKIMPY, CHEAP, AND AFTER 1 OR 2 WEARS THEY ARE (NOT USE ABLE ANYMORE)!

******WHY HAS JOCKEY NOT DONE ANYTHING TO IMPROVE ITS PRODUCTS AFTER RECEIVING MULTITUDES
OF NEGATIVE REVIEWS REGARDING THE GARMENTS THEY SELL?????

IF THESE REVIEWS ARE ALL THE SAME, NEGATIVE ABOUT JOCKEY, IT COMMUNICATES THE FOLLOWING WARNING:
DON'T BUY JOCKEY ANYMORE.
JOCKEY IS INTERESTED IN PRICING ITS PRODUCTS WAY TOO HIGH, GIVING LESS VALUE AND USABILITY OF ITS GARMENTS END AFTER 1 OR 2 WEARS> WHERE IS QUALITY CONTROL--OR IS PROFIT GENERATION ONLY !.

I REMEMBER ONCE PURCHASING JOCKEYLIFE UNDERWEAR (BIKINIS). THE SIZE CHART WAS TOTALLY INACCURATE. XL DID NOT FIT ME; THE GARMENT TORE. SIZE CHART IS A MIN. 2-3 SIZES SMALLER THAN LISTED; NEVER PURCHASED THEM AGAIN. THE ELANCE BIKINI IS AT LEAST 1 SIZE TOO SMALL !.

MANUFACTURE UNDERWEAR/OTHER GARMENTS)TO GENERATE POSITIVE EXPERIENCES, REPEAT PURCHASES/VOLUME BUYING. FRUIT OF THE LOOM IS VALUE PRICED, WEARS WELL, IS DURABLE LASTS LONGER.
LONG TIME OVERDUE-- JOCKEY NEEDS TO COMPLETELY GET ITS ACT TOGETHER!!!
THEN IT WILL REAP PROFITS AGAIN FROM REPEAT PURCHASES/LARGER VOLUME OF PURCHASES.

MORAL OF THE STORY: "WHEN YOU TAKE SHORT CUTS YOU GET CUT SHORT". JOCKEY (PARDON THE PUN) IS CUTTING 'BELOW THE BELT" TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT PRODUCTS IRRITATE/CUSTOMERS SKIN !!!.

OLD WAY OF MANUFACTURING WORKED WELL. I HAVE DOZENS OF DIFFERENT STYLES/COLOR BRIEFS AND THEY ARE IN COMFORTABLE TO WEAR !!!.

RE-START THE LOW-RISE/'BIKINI STYLE COTTON STRETCH WAIST BAND PRODUCT; FAR BETTER THAN ELANCE BIKINIS--ELANCE BIKINIS CUT "OFF CIRCULATION TO A MAN'S 'VITAL', BELOW THE BELT LINE APPENDAGES"!

SINCERELY, LARRY K. CNJ SHORE DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER!
LarryLarry on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I agree with Larry
Is there more or less coverage than the jockey stretch low rise bikini?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2017

comfortable, cotton, and have been buying for years..I think they are the besr!
how low is the rise and what is the side seam measurement?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: HI, Thank you for your inquiry. Here are the specs for the Elance bikini. Specs:Rise S - 10 1/4", M - 11 ", L - 11 3/4 ", XL - 12 1/4". Side seam
All sizes 2 1/4". Thank you and have a good day.
