Jockey; They’re Not Just Mens Undies! {review & $50 gift certificate giveaway} CLOSED

With my new resolution to drop 40 pounds this year I have found some major changes in my life; diet changes and trips to the gym 5 days a week. Not only has working out made me feel so much better but it has also started to make my body look better! The better I feel and the more body changes I see, the more I push myself to work-out more.

A few weeks ago I was searching online for comfy work-out pants or shorts. The shorts and pants I had been working out in drive me nuts, as they tend to ride up when I am working-out and I spend to much time adjusting my pants! Not only that, but it’s rather embarrassing when you have to keep pulling your pants down to avoid a major wedgie in a gym full of people! When Google suggested I visit the Jockey website for a pair of cropped workout pants I almost skipped past it.  Why would a woman want a pair of mens undies? I swear I do not live under a rock in the woods, but I really did not know that Jockey also had products for the ladies.

I am so glad I decided to take the advice of the big G and click that link! I was shocked to see that Jockey had a line designed for women! Not just a few items, but a huge collection of  bras, undies, activewear and sleepwear. When I thought of Jockey a few months ago the 1st thing that came to mind were mens undies. Actually those tighty-whiteys or mens brief underwear as some know them. I had NO CLUE that Jockey also had a line of bras, undies, activewear and sleepwear for women!

When Jockey offered to send me a box of goodies to try and review I was so excited! I love to try products out before I commit to purchasing them and really wanted to try out the Jockey line for women!

For review Jockey sent me the following activewear items

  • Tech Terry Crop Pant
  • Contrast Stripe Judo Pant

And the following panties

  • No Panty Line Promise® Luxe Hi Cut
  • Naturals Seamfree® Hi Cut
  • No Panty Line Promise® Tactel® Hi Cut
  • Classic Supersoft French Cut – 3 pack

{My Thoughts}

1. The Contrast Stripe Judo Pant (Style # 688100) is made with 90% Cotton/10% Spandex and is a crop pant with 18″ inseam that extends to mid-calf. The sides of the pants feature a wide color stripe and the same color circles the hip area.

These pants have become my new must-have work-out pants! They are lightweight, easy to slip on and off, and look good on! I really like how well they stay in place, so I am not adjusting my pants while I am busy working out.

I am not a tiny girl, actually rather curvy and these pants look great on. I got these in a size XL, which is for sizes 14-16 ( I wear a 12/14 jean), and they fit perfect. My rear actually looks really good in them! The pant is not tight at all and is relaxed so I can move with ease on the elliptical machine or during my Zumba work-out. The waist sits right under my belly button, which is where I like it to be.

I would give these comfy pants a 5-star any day! While the pants are available in three different color stripes, I would like to see some other main colors (in place of black). Maybe a grey or pink too.

2. The Tech Terry Crop Pant (Style # 673300) is made with a moisture wicking fabric, 92% polyester/8% spandex. These are also a crop pant style and has a 22″ inseam. The top left hip area has a small pocket which I can fit my gym key in perfectly. The waistband features a color block with two colors.

I ordered this pant in a size XL based on the size chart which said it would fit size 14-16. While the pants do slide on they are pretty tight in the rear and the crotch area, so I do have to pull and tug them some while I am working out (especially at Zumba when I am moving a lot). They are comfortable to wear but I am not a big fan of how tight they are. I do not feel as comfortable in these as I do in the Contrast Stripe Judo Pant, so they have become my at home work-out pants.

I like the fabric is moisture wicking fabric as it is designed to keep you dry. I also really like the over-all look of the pants. I think my body shape just was not a good fit for the size I received. Perhaps a size larger would have fit me better and allowed me to feel more comfortable.

Aside from the acivewear pants I also received several pairs of panties to try out. I have lots of different styles of panties and I normally select my style based on what I am wearing for the day. I generally purchase cheeky panties, thongs, or “butt panties” as my hubby calls ladies briefs.

{Jockey Undies}

Jockey sent me several pairs of panties to try out.  My favorite of the bunch were the  No Panty Line Promise® Tactel® Hi Cut. While I did like all of the panties I was sent, this panty is my favorite!

The No Panty Line Promise® Tactel® Hi Cut are made of 90% Tactel® Nylon / 10% Lycra® spandex. Tactel® Nylon is made by Invista North America S.A.R.L. It is a specialty fiber with an amazingly soft feel and a smooth appearance.

The hi cut style sits 1.5″ below waistline and feature hi cut legs. I love how soft these panties are and how well they fit. They form my body perfectly and do not push anything down as some ladies panties do. The panties stay put even when I am moving around a lot. I LOVE that! I can not stand having to fix my underwear when I am busy and these do not ride up at all.

These panties also have virtually no panty line! As someone who will normally wear a thing to avoid a panty line, I am pleased when I wear these! The only time you do see a slight line is in very form fitting thin pants. Under jeans, skirts, or regular fitting shorts there is no panty line!

The only thing I can honestly say I would like to see are more color and pattern options!
