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
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!

Does this bra contain latex?
I have a latex allergy and am looking for a latex free bra.
I have no idea if it is latex free. You might consider checking JCPenney's description on their website.
