I ordered these briefs for my husband & took a guess on the sizing, since the waist measurement was not posted. Unfortunately I guessed wrong & had to return the ones I ordered. But lo & behold - the packaging has the sizing! Please see the photo I attached for the waist range for each size. It should be on the product page. Other than that the briefs are nice & soft. We got the next larger size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hornman Poor Fit
Going to the current sizing system of small, medium, and large where each category includes a range or actual sizes is certainly going to work for a lot of people. But, there is also a large segment of people that are not satisfied with these briefs because they are either too loose or too tight. These briefs should manufactured in exact sizes like their all-cotton brothers.
As it turns out the cotton/polyester blend makes a much better brief than an all-cotton brief because all-cotton briefs absorb and hold moisture while the cotton/polyester brief helps wick moisture away from the body. That's why I prefer the blend. But, unfortunately, I will not wear this product because of poor fit. I'll probably have to keep my vintage briefs a few more years until Penney's figures out they need to fix the sizing problem and also learns how to properly market this product. Heck, as a properly fitting blend these briefs would be a great all-around brand of underwear for most athletes (such as me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by TedVL Great choice for athletes
As a very active guy with an athletic build, I have had a hard time finding comfortable underwear for daily wear. Boxer briefs are binding on my thighs, boxer shorts are out of the question (no support) and most briefs are too skimpy and don't fit well.
A body builder friend at the gym recommended JC Penney brand "full cut" briefs so I went to the store to check it out.
Had a hard time finding what I was looking for, helpful salesman pointed me to these. Bought two packs since they were on sale, and man am I happy I did.
Best underwear I have ever worn, and I understand now why the "full cut" is so important for athletic guys. Very comfortable support, with no binding.
And for sports, cotton blend is best....hold their shape better, better sweat wicking than all cotton.
I have been able to replace all of my daily wear underwear with these, and I also wear them for sports, since they are so comfortable and supportive...no longer have to buy expensive athletic underwear. It's simplified my laundry and underwear drawer only having one kind. Thanks JCP!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Timothy Not very comfortable
I have purchased Stafford briefs in the past. Actually preferred them over other brands. The latest purchase though has a flaw that makes them rather uncomfortable. The elastic does not lay flat against my body. When I move around the elastic folds over. It's a constant battle. I straighten it out and it folds back over. Not good, especially when trying to sleep. I bought three packages and will be returning the ones I haven't opened.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BriefComments Great way to "break out of the Tighty Whiteys"
The quality and fit of the briefs are very good and similar to the usual whites. They wash well and look good time after time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skipp85 better than everything else
i happened upon these wonderful briefs by chance and am glad i didnt pass them up. i had worn both boxers and briefs when i first bought these and when i put these on for the first time i was hooked. my boxers and lesser briefs soon disappeared and these were all i wore. they are super soft and fit perfectly. ive bought them more than a few times with the multiple name changes and they have remained the same superb quality, with my original towncraft ones still in regular rotation. while i now have an assortment of other brands (more expensive, larger name brands) of briefs these are my defaults and all others take the backseat. since i bought these ive converted 100% to briefs because of their perfect fit and great look. i dont think i could go for an extended period without these briefs. simply nothing else really compares to these spectacular briefs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SamG Wrong size label
These are waaaayyyy to big. I had to return my order because these they were way to big. It wasn't that i ordered the wrong size, it was simply that the label size is completely wrong. If you are ordering a pack make sure to order one or two sizes below. For example I use 44 - i should have ordered a 40.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BaggyDrawers Product oversized - unwearable
I wish I had returned the briefs. They are much larger than expected. The waist band fits but the rest of the brief is huge. I am 6 foot/200# and these briefs would fit a 300# man with a huge posterior. The size seems to vary by color within the assortment. I have worn Stafford briefs for many years and have never experienced this problem before.
