Cotton-Poly Nursing Crossover Becomes Crossover

The crossover top has proven to be effective for both nursing and non-nursing women, so the Nursing Crossover Tops have been changed to simply Crossover Tops and are now merchandised in stores with garments of the same fabric instead of with maternity garments.

New Cotton-Poly 60/40 Garments

In March of 2022, the 50% Cotton 50% Polyester Cotton-Poly garment was discontinued and replaced with the 60% Cotton 40% Polyester Cotton-Poly garment. In addition to the fabric change, there were a few other adjustments:

  • Men’s sleeves shortened and crew neckline lowered to fit under conventional t-shirts
  • Numeric sizing changed to alpha (with the exception of the one-piece)
  • Women’s tops moved from a square neck to a crossover

Standardized Elastic

In late 2021, the elastic used in garment waistbands was standardized across fabrics to provide a more consistent experience. This change affected Carinessa, Cotton-Poly, DriSilque, and Nylon Mesh for women; and Cotton-Poly, DriLux, Corban, and Nylon Mesh for men.

Lace Removed from Women’s Garments

In early 2021, we began removing lace from women’s garment tops and switching to a standardized, plain binding due to updated customer preferences. This also makes the binding less visible under clothing. In addition, the lace was removed from the Carinessa Mid-Calf Bottom hem.
