by mmhsunny Need Sizing Chart on Product Page - See Attached Image
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 CollegeBriefGuy Picking A Winner
I am a college student and live in an all-male dorm. Unlike most guys my age, I was raised up in briefs; they were what my mom always bought for me and what I was expected to wear. I was the only guy in my high-school gym class who wore briefs; everyone else wore boxers or boxer briefs. I learned to ignore caustic remarks about my "tightly whities;" I liked my briefs and didn't care.
Mom bought me Hanes, Jockey, and FTL's. I had never worn Stafford briefs until I went off to college and did my own underwear shopping, deciding to try out a JCP within walking distance of campus. I selected a package of six blended cotton white full-cut briefs. The trademark yellow and blue stripes on the waistband drew me to them.
As soon as I got back to the dorm and undressed and slipped on a pair I knew that with my new underpants I had selected a winner!!! The smooth feel of the fabric and the snug but not tight fit were awesome. I am sender and tan and in very good shape, and I must admit I looked really good in these briefs. I usually pair them with ribbed sleeveless tees; great look!!!
College dorms are very casual; guys see each other in underwear all the time, going to the shower room, the bathroom, and around bed time. I have gotten compliments about how good the briefs look - initially from my roommate - and I actually saw Stafford briefs on another guy in my hall the other night. Maybe I have started something!!!
I have since bought another pack and more tee shirts; having a dozen sets keeps me from having to constantly do laundry. The reasonable price of the JCP product allows me to do this within my college-student budget.
Keep up the good work, and if more guys my age ditch the sloppy boxers and give Stafford briefs a try, they will be pleasantly surprised!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cando14 Poor waistband quality.
After many years of purchasing the Stafford brand, the most recent purchase (February 2015) was disappointing. The quality of the cotton is good, however, after several washes the elastic waistband stretches to the extent that the briefs cannot be worn. In an effort to avoid excess wear, always purchase ten to 12 pair, to rotate usage. May purchase once more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Staffordbriefs Good comfortable product
The waist band is very comfortable and the material is very soft. The fly opening is larger than on many briefs which allows for easier access and the pouch area is wider than on most briefs which tends to add to the comfort and security in preventing "pop outs". The leg openings are the perfect size to keep everything securely in place so there is no need for adjustments during the day, especially at inopportune times. The only thing that keeps me from rating these briefs as excellent is the fact there is too much material in the seat which tends to leads to bunching.

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 4 out of 5 by Poldl Nice briefs!
The Stafford full-cut briefs have a very wide, supportive pouch that is much more accommodating than any other briefs I've worn, which is nearly all of the brands out there. Most others are too small in the crotch which leads to "fallout" and pinching. These briefs also feature the only useable vertical fly I've ever used (as opposed to Y fronts [useless] or H fronts [great], etc...). This is a huge design flaw in pretty much all other vertical fly briefs. The poly cotton blend is a nicer fabric than the all cotton.
The rise/waist is pretty high but the low and medium rise Stafford briefs have about 25% less room in the crotch, so I buy these and deal with them rolling up under my belly or just pull them up above the beltline. I like the striped waistband a lot. These are a great value for the price.
I would like the blended fabric briefs to have the numbered waist sizes like the all cotton ones do and maybe a bit of Lycra as well. The rise could be a bit shorter. I have a very long rise and these go above even my waist. The xxl's I bought seem to run a bit large in the waist.
It would also be great if a Stafford H-fly was offered someday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TyJC If this is underwear WHAT HAVE I BEEN WEARING?
Alright, I'll be frank. I bought these in store as a joke for my friend. But when I tried them on I was speechless. I was always a boxer guy, always picking wedgies because they ride up in my skinny jeans, but now I don't think I'll wear boxers ever again. I went online and bought 3 packages of these briefs.
I sag my pants a little, so when everyone else in class saw them they giggled. They might make a joke, but for anyone my age (17) just laugh with them, and then ask when are they wearing uncomfortable boxers xD.
Seriously these feel great, they are made great, and cheap.
Just in case this effects your opinion these fit best with slim bodies with little belly, it fits great on me.
So anyone who is thinking about laughing about someone like me talking about Tighty Whities go ahead, the comfort is unimaginable and you should convert to these too.
