Jockey International, Inc. announced the newest addition to the Jockey family: Baby Jockey. Jockey is partnering with Gerber Childrenswear to launch this soft line of baby clothes. Aligning with their commitment to provide on-trend yet functional products, Baby Jockey’s styles are fabricated from cotton interlock (95%) and spandex (5%) for ease of movement and comfort. The collection also includes features such as lap shoulders for easy over-the-head dressing, and snap-crotch or full-front openings for simplified diaper changing. The Baby Jockey collection for boys and girls includes bodysuits, sleep ‘n play outfits, accessories and pant sets ranging in sizes 0-3 to 24 months. While Baby Jockey’s girls’ collection includes ruffle detailing, floral applique embroidery and shirred necklines, Baby Jockey’s boys’ collection incorporates rich colors and playful designs and screen prints. While Baby Jockey’s girls’ collection enjoyed an early release on Jockey.com in June, Baby Jockey’s boys’ collection will launch in late September 2014. Baby Jockey will be available on Jockey.com, as well as at additional retailers such as Babies “R” Us, Belk and Amazon.com.

Jockey International, Inc. Reinvents Bra

Jockey International, Inc. announced that women often complain about their bras - poor fit, underwire problems, inconsistent sizing, and discontinued styles. The company has the solution to these problems. The newest JOCKEY(R) bra features volumetric sizing, replaces underwires with a 3-D Contour support and guarantees consistent sizing in styles that will not be discontinued. Designed by women, for women, JOCKEY bra's patented Volumetric Fit System replaces the 80-year-old alphanumeric sizing format. This revolutionary fit system measures both the volume of a woman's breast, as well as her under-bust measurement, resulting in the closest thing to a custom-made bra. Jockey conducted eight years of research and development, including the 3-D scanning of more than 800 female bodies, to design JOCKEY bra, and now women have a bra that they will enjoy wearing every day. Would Customer measure water in a pitcher with a tape measure? No. So why would Customer measure a woman's breast with a flat measuring tool? With its revolutionary new Volumetric Fit System, JOCKEY bra invites women to order a JOCKEY bra Fit Kit to measure the volume of their breast via a unique cup system to find their perfect fit. The Fit Kit includes 10 volumetric fit cup sizes and a color-coded measuring band to measure the body's under-bust measurement. The JOCKEY bra's new fit system will help women find their perfect fit no matter what style. The JOCKEY bra features 55 sizes with a unique and patented 3-D Contour support, which replaces old-fashioned and often uncomfortable underwire. This new armature supports, cups and shapes the breast without any poking, giving women a comfortable fit. Once women determine their size, they can select from five bra style options, including Classic Contour, Tailored Contour, Double-Lined Contour, Classic-Soft Cup and Double-Lined Soft Cup. They will then choose from three colors: black, nude and white. Each bra retails at $60. Jockey offers a "Love at First Fit, Guaranteed" promise or Customer money back. And unlike other bras, Jockey will not discontinue any style, so a favorite bra will always be available.
