Decreasingly poor quality - Not the trusted brand used to be!,
I've worn and loved Hanes cotton bikinis (various styles, including these, my every day go to set) for decades. They used to hold up very well, wash after wash, lasting year after year, even. It was a predictably decent purchase always, a reasonable price and a pretty good product. Not anymore.
I bought a package of these this season, and they fell a part after just the second week of my normal wear and wash routine. Nothing changed on my end, from water to detergent or machine or cycle. On the second time through, these are literally shredding at the elastic waistband. They are literally just coming a part! Horrible quality.
I gave Hanes the benefit of the doubt, thinking it was a poor manufacturing batch. So I purchased a second package of the same style, different prints. Same exact outcome. Disappointed in the wasted money.
I just can't count on Hanes to be dependable, reliable or of decent quality any more.
My recommendation: Don't buy them! Maybe even skip Hanes altogether now!

I agree completely with last review Hanes used to be a good brand. They "DID" use last wash after wash, even years but "NOT ANYMORE" I don't know what happen to Hanes they use to be so good now they suck. Does anyone else know of good brand everyday undies for women for a good price and good quality. please let me know.

Same experience here! Every single pair I bought just shredded at the elastic after just three washes! I thought it was me, but I'm glad I'm not going crazy! I won't be buying from them anymore.

Same here for me too. Been buying for years and then this year bought a pack, size 7. They fit like a size 5 and I can't wear them. Bought another pack of their "premium" and same thing. I will never buy these again.

I absolutely agree! Hanes have went to crap. I have several of my old ones, the ones with the wide waist band, then bought a package of the newer ones, not only are the waist bands thinner and don't hold up like they use to but you can clearly tell the new ones are much thinner, almost see through. My old Hanes are that are over 2 years old are thicker than these new ones they have come out with. Very disappointed, will have to find something else.

OMG, I thought it was just me. I used to buy these and they would last a year or more. Now within three washes they have strings coming out the elastic and the cotton is covered in pills. Wish they would switch to however they used to manufacture them. Would like to know if anyone has found a brand comparable to what these used to be.
