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.

fine
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

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!

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.

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.

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!!!

Jockey, "You've changed"
I have worn Jockey underwear for about 20 years. It was always expensive, for cotton underwear but the quality was excellent and they lasted a very long time. I just bought 3 of the 3pack Elance. The material (cotton) is very thin and not soft the way it used to be. As it has been pointed out by other reviewers the quality has continued to decline as the prices have gone up. The quality as it is produced now only lasts about a year. The seams are so poorly stitched that they loosen and the elastic begins to show after 1 year. They also have a tendency to develop runs where the crotch is sewn and attached to the back and front of the underpants. I will no longer be purchasing Jockey underwear. ___Disappointed.

You are claiming "new colors" but not giving us new colors. I am waiting. ?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The floral and pink colors are new to me and I have never seen at Jockey. The navy I have not seen either but maybe they had before, I don't know. I always buy Jockey and have never seen these colors before.
Why does quality across many brands continue to decine while prices continue to rise? If you are young, don't let them "train" you to think clothes don't last. They used to and still should!

BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I would contact one of our personal shoppers at 1-800-562-5391 and we would be happy to assist you. Thank you and have a good day.
I love the fit and feel of your underwear but the last few packs I have gotten have gotten lots of little holes after wearing. I have blamed it on my washing machine, detergent, ect. But the last packs I got had holes after the first or second wearing. Then I noticed that a new pair from the bottom of the stack that hadn't been worn had a small hole on the first day of wear. So it has to be the quality. Any ideas why this has started happening. Not the quality they used to be?
