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.

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.

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!!

Love them!
I love these panties! I am guy and I can't find bikini underwear that I really like but OMG these are great! The sting fit is totally awesome. And the colors are great. I love the animal print! (You can never get cute colors in guys underwear).

Totally recommend to men and women. And for guys, you really can't tell they are panties so changing at the gym looks just like wear bikini briefs for guys.

Fantastic Product and Amazing Delivery
I have been wearing these Jockey String Bikinis for ages but this was the first time I ordered them online since it's virtually impossible to find them in stores and, if you can find them, the selection is atrocious. Purchasing online was very easy and the panties arrived earlier than promised. I did a similar review about 8 years ago and the panties are still wonderful. It's really a shame that Jockey can't make a men's version of these panties that fit as nicely as these do and have the same soft cotton fabric. Please never stop making these wonderful panties!

I have worn Jockey string bikinis ever since I can remember. While it is true that the quality is not the same, it is the best string bikini out there on the market. I just wish that the panties were more durable and the color choices were expanded to include more colors and/or prints.

Susan D on May 25, 2018
I've been wearing these string bikini panties for quite a long time- comfortable cotton material, nice fit. Not too high of a rise (I'm 5'4" with relatively short distance b/t belly button and bottom of panty. Very comfortable, too, without too much material.

Marcia L on May 22, 2018
like the fit however The waist band should be reinforced since after washing for a few months, elastic starts to show under the waist band. May find another brand with more material thickness at the waistband
