According to an announcement made on its official store website, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is discontinuing certain sacred garment styles to make way for new ones.
“Based on extensive research and testing, a new garment fabric with improved fit and design is scheduled for release in 2018. In anticipation of bringing new products to our shelves, a few selected products will be discontinued,” the announcement read.
The discontinued styles are:
- Dri Lux top and bottom
- DriSilque flare-leg one-piece
- DriSilque snug-leg one-piece (petite and tall statures only)
- Cotton-Poly midcalf bottom
- Cotton-Poly zipper-front one-piece
- Nylon Mesh one-piece
- Corban one-piece (tall stature only)
The information page about the changes stated that the discontinued styles were chosen by careful selection and review “based on customer satisfaction scores, redundant features, global use, and feedback from current customers.”
You will be able to order these discontinued garment styles through October 31, 2017. After that date, orders will be filled for these styles until the remaining stock is depleted. You can purchase garments at store.lds.org and select distribution centers.
The new garment style has been designed for women and will be available early next year. It will be a “four-way stretch cotton with no lace, providing a snug fit.”
