JMS Cotton TAGLESS&reg; Panties 5-Pack
I have been buying JMS briefs for 20 years and they have recently went way down hill. I have bought two five packs recently that do not fit. I have been buying the same size for ever. I compared them to an old pair and they were two inches smaller around the waist... What a waste of money... I have already washed them so do not feel that I can return them... I am very disappointed.. Mary

The last time I purchased JMS underwear was a few years ago and I remember them being so soft and comfortable. In fact I still have a few pairs from then and compared them to my new ones and there is no comparison. The new style runs way too small, very rough material (almost like wearing twill) and they fall down. I was really upset because I cannot wear them and I will never shop with JMS again. Their bras were going down hill a few years ago and now their underwear, it is really sad to see a company sell such a low rent product. I have been a customer of JMS since my teens, but now I will stick with paying a higher price from a specialty store if that means a great fit, soft material and they will stay up.

Runs very small another "New" Coke disaster!
Like others I've bought the briefs for YEARS. First they started to get smaller leg openings and the waistband was cheaper but that was ok - could live with that. Next came the CLOWN colors (polka dots, garish colors). Now they are running like 2 sizes smaller with reeeeally cheap feeling fabric! I even took pictures of the difference. That was BEFORE they were washed. I had to give them to my sister. It's "nice" of them to tell us to buy a size larger... doesn't help if you are a 13 or 14 already.
It doesn't take a brainiac to figure out they "restructured" them to account for the severe degrade in quality. Not sure that the size measurements on the package are even really valid any more. Guess like Subway we're not getting the whole "foot". ;)
Anyway I won't buy these anymore so off to find a new source of undies... bummer.
and just for the record - if it was just to accommodate a new style fit why didn't you mark it on the package to forwarn customers or better yet create a new "low rise contoured brief" style rather than change what was already a good selling product (even if they had to raise the price).
I wish you'd go back to the old style, quit the clown colors, and make some all black packages. I don't think they could drive away more customers if they tried.....

I have been wearing jms panties for more than 20 years, but not any more. The "New Fit" is awful! After buying my regular size, which were too small all over, I bought the next size up (which is the largest jms has) and the fit was still awful. They are too tight in the hips and the leg openings are too big. When you wash them they shrink and that makes the fit even worse. Also the fabric is much thinner. They feel and fit like Fruit of the Loom panties which I HATE! Now I have to go through the time and expense of finding new panties that will fit me. I can't tell you how disappointed I am in jms. I used to buy a lot of clothing from them, but their panties were the last thing left that I liked...not any more.
