Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product! I brought these bras for my mother-in-law for Christmas. These are the only bras we both wear. Didn't have to go out in the mad mall to buy! I just order on line while sitting on my couch. Then I got them in the mail in a week! Love It!!!! January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by greatest bra, greatest price ! January 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Features are amazing The only bras I wear and purchased. I've never been dissatisfied with Playtex wire free. Fits perfectly. I've tried other styles but didn't like the fit. Colors are fabulous. I've purchased from retail stores and the outlets, but ordering online is wonderful I'm able to try on in the comfort of my home. And, I'm happy. This style deserves higher rating, so I'm upgrading my rating to 10 stars. I highly recommend this style. No other bra compares to this style. July 18, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great fit -- but .... I have 2 or 3 bras of this style that I've worn for a couple of years. The fit is great, but in your attempt to be "pretty" and "feminine," you have used a fabric with a floral design between 2 thin layers for the side/back panels. These "flowers" contain latex that has melted and actually sticks to my skin, yet these bras are advertised to be worn for 18 hours. I live in a hot climate where this is most uncomfortable. I plan to move to another location that is not only hot but more humid than LA. I am more than amply endowed, so I need a bra with good uplift and support. Except for that icky sticky fabric in the side and back panels, this bra is great. If you replace that pretty floral fabric with something that is merely stretchy, I'll come back to this design in a hurry. July 6, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by sizes It is impossible to find sizes that are wider! There are many women with C or D cup but very large around. Are we suppose to go bra-less? Please start selling stronger product and wider bras! July 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 minute bra This is more about sizing than the bra but I guess it is one in the same. I was excited to see this bra in a 34 band! I wear a C cup and I have been looking for a bra with some substance. I wanted a wider band and back, with more hooks and wider cushioned straps. Something I can wear all day. Yeah, 18 hours. I was looking forward to a wirefree bra that could hold me in place without having a uniboob, get full coverage, non slip no bounce support without having tiny straps digging in my shoulders. I have work to do. I guess I am dreaming because as I placed my order, I found out this bra does NOT come in a C cup in a 34 band, only a D with a 34 band. This really confuses me. I tried it anyway and of course, the cups were too big. I was hoping it ran small. I just don’t understand their ideas in sizing. There are many women with small band sizes like 32 and 34 with a C cup, looking for No-nonsense support and comfort. If you are a 34 C, it doesn’t qualify you for comfort. I will have to gain weight. January 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wears well with good support. Have worn this style for years. Wears well with good support and no wires. Love the comfort straps. July 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best bra ever! I love this bra and have been buying it from JMS for years. One problem is that they only make a few colors in the larger sizes. Not fair! I would love to have all the colors that they offer in the smaller sizes, too! July 13, 2016

Help with sizing
I am a 40B and love the fit, style and comfort of this bra "Ambrielle®Woman Mystique Embroidered Balconet Bra". I have gone to a couple of your stores local to me and have been told that Ambrielle does not make a 40b anymore. I have tried a 40c and the cup is way to big. help

Answer: 
I can only tell you what I did and do - I'm hard to fit. Measure the band on the bra you have that your like - without stretching it. Write down that measurement. Then with the help of a yardstick or friend with a tape-measure, stretch that bra's band as far out as it will 'go' - write down that measurement. (Make sure you are only measuring to the line of hooks you use - not the looser ones or tighter ones if you use the middle.)

Cup-size is more tricky. Back to that last.

Hook your bra you like. Measure the distance between the straps in front and back. Write down that number.

Trace the shape of the front of the bra on a piece of paper - i.e. - does it "plunge"?

Measure the bottom of the band to the top of the bra in the middle of cleavage area. Write that down on your tracing.

Cups - this means you will be trying on a bra that meets the other measurements you like - measure the "length" (horizontal) of the cup from middle of cleavage over to where it goes into side seam.

This should help you get another bra similar to what you have.

Saves trying on a lot of bras -

And remember to take your old bra with you - - instead of trying on a lot of bras (and getting depressed or exhausted) go at this like a "mathmatician" or "dress maker" - use your old bra you like as a pattern and measure it against the new bra, if the measurements seem to check out.

New bra will be a little tight until it stretches out a bit.

Hope this helps!

Answer: 
Try going in for a bra fitting, if you haven't already. You may find that you actually wear a 38C instead of a 40B, for example, which might allow you to order the bra you like.

Answer: 
try a 38 c ........You go down in band size & up in cup.
40 b = 38c
38c=40b

36 b = 34 a down cup size
36 b = 38 a up cup size

Answer: 
Thank you for reaching out to us! Unfortunately we discontinued the Ambrielle balconette bras due to lack of customer demand for that size. We do have a bra with similar visual appeal and color offerings as the Ambrielle Mystique bra. This Playtex Embroidered Foam Bra is available in 40B online and can be found at the link below:

Answer: 
Select your desired band size, cup, color then click add to bag. When the pop up showing the item you just added to your bag appears, click the close button at the top of that pop up screen. You can now select another band size, cup and color for that item. Now click add to bag again. You should now have both items in your cart.

Playtex 18 hour posture bra front closure
Does the bra style #4695 have the full back or just the little 2-3 inch back, I have worn the style 4643 for years but they have changed the back of it and or the straps are different on other styles. I want the full back support and the cushioned wide strap. Is this still available?

Answer: 
Style 4695 has the 2-3 inch back strap with the front close hooks. The original 18HR posture bra with the comfort strap was discontinued by the vendor about 3 years ago. Because of the high customer demand, they introduced an updated version (style 4643).

We do offer several other posture bras. Based on your description, we would suggest you try the Glamorise Posture bra at the link below:
