JMS Cotton TAGLESS&reg; Panties 5-Pack
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.

I read the reviews. I ordered a larger size. The items received were 5" SMALLER than the smaller size I already owned. I have bought JMS panties for 20+ years. Unfortunately these are going back. Too small. The elastic is cheap. The fabric is flimsy. I was so disappointed. Please go back to the old quality. Or I am not coming back.

Was going to Buy
I was going to buy these like I always have. After reading all the current reviews, JMS has lost the sale for these panties. Been buying them here for years!
