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 Best Bra I have ever owned! I started wearing Playtex 18 Hour Comfort Strap bras when I was a teenager. Twenty years later, I still prefer the Comfort Strap bras over any other bra style and brand out there. Since I'm very busty, I love how the cups keep the girls in place all day long. No having to readjust. Plus, there's no breast spillage beneath the band under the cups, which is a common problem I've had with other bras I've tried. The comfort strap bras even last longer than Just My Size bras. Because I have a large bust, I require wide straps. The padded straps on the Comfort Strap bras are perfect for that very reason. Narrow straps just won't do as they painfully dig into my shoulders. Back when I first started wearing comfort strap bras, they were only available in three colors: white, beige, and black. Thankfully, there are more colors available. However, I wish that Playtex would offer their Comfort Strap bras in some bright neon colors and crazy prints, such as, polka dots, stripes, ginghams, plaids, and even skulls. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps 'Em Standing Tall & Natural Ok, seriously I am a very large woman with narrow small shoulders and melon sized gals! This is the ONLY bra that keeps the gals where they need to be without killing my shoulders or digging into my underarms. Have tried them all, none come close to this classic, well priced bra. Just wish they made this bra in more colors for size 52D and with matching cute underwear. Not sure why this site does not practice upselling because I would seriously welcome suggestions for matching underwear. Big gals want to feel sexy too!!!!!! Bonus they send bras to my house and no one else has ever tried it on before because years ago I got a fungal infection below breasts and doctor traced it back to trying on bras before purchasing. Took a lot of medicine to cure it and I never want it back again. Very efficient way to shop for an excellent product. August 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fitting Bra I bought this bra about a month ago. Before I bought this bra, I was wearing two bras for almost 8 years because I couldn't find bras to fit! I went into stores to get fitted, always getting different sizes and numbers. I am heavy busted, so I had given up on finding a bra that fits UNTIL ONE DAY my sister took me into the store and handed me a Playtex bra. Skeptical, I tried it on. And, boy o boy, it fit!!! It actually fit!!!! They had my breasts covered and lifted. The shoulder pads didn't hurt my shoulders. I bought 3 that day. And, I have been ordering off the website as well. I threw all my old bras away, no more wearing 2 bras anymore!!!!! Thank you Playtex for giving me confidence in bras again!!!! I have a co-worker who I told about my bras, and she is now wearing Playtex as a result!!!! Thank you! Thank you! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great until I tried it on! This looks like a great bra, but it was soooo big. My husband and I laughed at the size of it. I did measure but I must have been mistaken. I am a pretty hefty bosom size so I though I was doing it right. It definitely looks like a GREAT bra. I wish I hadn't got the wrong size. Thanks. Jane September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable I love the strong support straps that do not dig into my shoulders. Awesome fit for me. September 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Didn't Fit I followed the directions for measuring for fit and came up with a size much larger than the size I'm wearing now, but I ordered it. It barely came halfway around me. I don't know what's happening with JustMySize sizing but I've had similar problems with the bathing suits. The quality of this bra is not what it used to be, either. I've worn this bra for many years and it's the only one that's been really comfortable so I don't know what I'll do now. I'll find a local store and check sizing, for a first step. Maybe it's time to find another style. This is quite disappointing. I should say that the customer service is first rate. The people are always so helpful. August 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Great Bra for the well endowed as I have been for years. If I am not comfy in my bra I am noy a happy camper! September 15, 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:
