We mentioned JC Penney’s lingerie line Ambrielle some time ago — and seeing as I felt bad admitting I hadn’t heard of ‘m, I went on a little research-spree. Turns out it’s not that surprising I hadn’t heard of the label, seeing as it’s exclusive to JC Penney, and completely unavailable here in Belgium. That’s life!
Still, after taking a closer look at the pieces, it seems like a very good “bang for buck”-brand. Flirtatious and hip lingerie at great prices. Lovely bras of well under $20 are no exception! For their Spring 2008 collection they went for shades of cool greens, sweet pinks, berry blues and warm yellows — a pairing to summer wardrobes. The line features a variety of styles in both bras and panties that will make (and I quote) “what goes under your clothes as much of a fashion statement as the clothes themselves”.
I like the looks, but I suggest you make up your own opinion — we’ve got pics! 🙂
Ambrielle has a lovely website — make sure you check it out (and make sure to keep your eyes open for Ambrielle on TLP!).
I love the Ambrielle line!! I buy my bras from the Ambrielle line exclusively now. They have the best fitting bras up to a 42DD (which is what I am) I no longer have to shop at Lane Bryant thanks to Ambrielle. They’re lingerie fits amazing too! I highly recommend their line.

Worn once, underwire keeps poking trough and making it unwearable. How do I get an exchange?
I’d check with JCPenny. The site does not conduct any consumer transactions. Good luck.
I too LOVE the Ambrielle bras, however, I have of the same style and everyone of them I cannot keep the straps up. They fall continously, therefore it is a pain to wear them, but they are comfy and look great. Any suggestions what I can do to make the straps stay in place?? I am desperate, thank you.
I have a nickel allergy and after trying on the Ambrielle bras began to feel itchy all over. I wonder if anyone knows if the Ambrielle line is nickel free or if the underwire and strap adjusters are made of nickel or not ?

I could not believe how poorly these bras were made. The underwire came out after only ONE WASHING and they just didn’t fit properly. I wear the same size as I have for the past 20 years but their sizes obviously aren’t the same as what Playtex has. I will never purchase anything with the Ambrielle logo on it again. In my opinion, a quality store such as J.C. Penney should not do business with this company.
