Rated 3 out of 5Â by Jess These are not the panties you're looking for.
I was a devoted fan of JMS's previous line of cotton stretch briefs and wore them for years. When they were discontinued it took me forever to find something that I liked at such a reasonable price and never did find it. I settled for Bali's cotton stretch (style 23648 here) but at $7 a pair still expensive in my opinion. They're basically identical to the old JMS ones so I'd wait for sales and stock up.
If any of that sounds like you, you do not want these panties. They are not the same as the old ones. They are not a full cut brief; they run higher in the leg and lower at the waist. I find myself constantly tugging them up or down if I'm not wearing pants. The crotch panel is also more narrow. The overall material for the panty is much thinner and more flimsy than what I was expecting. It seems cheap. The elastic leg and waist bands aren't that rolled over cotton thing JMS tried for a while, they're straight up elastic. However they're MUCH more narrow that the previous style.
A more personal choice issue aside from all of the above is that you do not get to choose colors. I prefer all white. Despite the picture that only shows white, what I got was mostly colors. Yellow, green, white with yellow and green polka dots, red, a red patterned thing, and one pair of white. They're listed as assorted only, and they truly are--you get no choice in the matter.
I've worn and washed them once so far with no issues but I definitely do not feel that they'll go the distance. I hope I'm wrong.
Overall, they're not a bad product so far. They're just not like the old ones and hence not what I was hoping to get.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by maw2maw NOT A BRIEF
This is the worst brief I have ever gotten from JMS. This should not be described as a brief. It's more like a over -sized bikini panty. The leg holes are to large and and the seat barely covers your bottom. The elastic is cheap and so is the quality of these so called briefs. Don't waste your money on these if you want a brief, cause this is not......

Rated 1 out of 5Â by WasaJMSfan Very Disappointed
I have been wearing JMS underwear for over 15 years. I recently purchased several packages of my regular size, and was greatly disappointed in the quality, fit, and sizing. First of all, the material is now very thin, and the elastic is thinner and not as good a quality as it used to be. The cut of the brief is no longer correct, and the fit.... if you can call it that, is nonexistant. The first pair of panties i put on in my regular size, were about 2 sizes too big. I had to keep putting my hand down the waistband of my jeans to roll up my panties on my thighs because they felt like they were falling down. I also had to roll up the waist several times to keep them up. The second pair from the same package were so tight, I couldn't get them over my hips, and were at least a size too small. The third pair from that package were the correct size, but again, the cut was off. I had to roll up the material on the outside of my thighs because it was hanging down too long.
The cut in the groin was too high, exposing a lot of skin.
The elastic should have been in the juncture between thigh and torso, but it was cut well above that. These panties were a big disappointment, and not the quality product that JMS used to make. I will be forced to look somewear else for quality underwear.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by mickismorethanamouse EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!
What kind of WEIRD MATERIAL are these supposedly made of?
They are certainly NOT the QUALITY I am used to expecting and BUYING from JMS!
They do not stay up, there is no practical waistband to speak of!
To be described as a brief is a farce! They are HIGH CUT! and should be listed as such. I have bought better microfiber underwear as a store brand. And yes, although the overview lists the material as cotton/spandex? They are really more like a pair of unwell made Spanx!
