Unknown-19The pair for today’s UndiesMonday is one many of you great up on. It’s a classic that had been hard to find in the last few years. That pair is the Jockey Elance Bikinis. Right now I can see many faces of our readers light up. Elance was the first bikini many out there bought. It brings back very good memories growing up and discovering undies. If you don’t know about the pair, well we think you need to check it out.

The Elance brand has been around since the 70’s. Many of you out there may remember MLB Pitcher Jim Palmer wearing these in the pages of People magazine in the 80’s. When you talk to any guy who grew up in that time period and mention Jim Palmer, most say he was the reason they had to buy them. You maybe asking why? Because here was this all American guy in skimpy undies. It just wasn’t done in the day. And we all had to have a pair!

This maybe a lot of set up for a pair but what makes you feel more amazing then revisiting a pair you used to have years ago. It’s very rare to be able to relive your past in underwear. Things change so fast, when you get  favorite pair it can be gone in the matter of months. I don’t even think I have any more of these.

So what makes them so special? Are they revolutionary? Have an amazing design? I would say no to all them. They are actually quite basic. A true bikini cut with no defined pouch and made out of 100% cotton. The relaunched line is amiable in a series of solid colors including one of all white. Gone are the stripes they had in the 80’s.

If you want to relive a pair from you past then this is it. They are available 3 for $19.99 at the Jockey site. Something tells me they aren’t in the tubes they used to come in!
