Beehive Clothing, the manufacturer of LDS garments, is preparing to introduce new garment styles. To accommodate these upcoming changes, it will discontinue a small number of current garment styles for men and women by the end of October 2017. The discontinued styles will free up resources to help prepare for new garments that will better meet members’ needs. A new fabric with an updated design for women will be available early next year. It is a four-way stretch cotton with no lace, providing a snug fit.
The following information is from the Church News:
“We want to ensure we are providing members around the world with quality garments that meet their needs so that they can keep the sacred covenants they’ve made in the temple,” said Angie White, garment product manager. “These discontinuations will help us meet that goal by allowing us to introduce improved styles and fabrics for members in the future.”
Sister White explained that each of the garment styles being discontinued was carefully selected based on customer feedback from thousands of surveys, evaluations of use from around the world, and working closely with Church leadership.
Following is a list of the women’s and men’s garment styles that will be discontinued on October 31, 2017.
- Dri Lux top and bottom
- DriSilque flare-leg one-piece
- DriSilque snug-leg one piece (petite and tall statures)
