At Deakin & Blue, we don’t compromise on fit, feel or function. Our swimwear is supportive in every sense of the word - it lifts us up and empowers us to be active, joyful and carefree. It’s beautiful, sophisticated and sensual, which is how we feel when we wear it.
No two size 14s are the same. That’s why we also offer three curve sizes so that our swimwear is tailored to fit your body beautifully.
We design every piece with movement in mind. That means you can swim, surf, SUP or dance with confidence and joy.
We’re passionate about our purpose, our planet and our people. We design and make our swimwear in London using recycled fabric.
No two size 14s are the same. That’s why our unique sizing system offers three different body fits. Choose your D&B size based on your dress size and cup size.

love flowsOur body stories
"I remember very clearly starting sixth form. One of my friends said to me, right, I'm going to wear something really normal on the first day and then once people get to know me, I can be more extreme.
I was thinking completely the opposite. I was thinking, right I'm going to meet these people wearing the craziest thing I've got and then they're going to know who I am. But I did all that quite quietly. I've never been the sort to shout, here I am. It's just a quiet confidence."
SUSTAINABILITYOur green loop
We make all our swimwear from ECONYL® - a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from waste like old fishing nets. It’s extra durable, meaning that you can wear your swimsuit for longer. And if it gets damaged? We offer a repair scheme. Finally, when you can no longer wear your swimsuit, we can send it back for recycling thus closing the loop.
We've developed our unique Muse Measurement sizing system to offer a comfortable, sleek and sculpting fit, whatever your shape or size.
We know that no two “size 12” bodies are the same, so our sizing is tailored to three different body shapes:
Step One: Pick your usual UK dress size from 8-20.
Step Two: Pick your bust size based on our Muse Measurements system:
|BRA CUP SIZE||AA - B||C - E||F - HH|
So if you typically wear a UK size 14 and wear a 34A bra, you’d order a 14 Hepburn. Likewise if you’re a UK size 10 and wear a 30F bra, you’d order a 10 Hendricks.
All our pieces are designed to offer stretch. However, if you’re in between sizes we recommend sizing up.
If you are very long in the body, we also recommend going up a dress size to offer additional length.
Our Swimbras & Swim Crops are designed to fit snugly so that you feel 100% secure as you move. We have developed a precise Bikini Sizing System to help you identify your correct size.
|BIKINI TOP SIZING||Cup Size|
Band Size (inches)
|26-28||8 Hepburn||8 Monroe||8 Hendricks|
|28-30||10 Hepburn||10 Monroe||10 Hendricks|
|30-32||12 Hepburn||12 Monroe||12 Hendricks|
|34-36||14 Hepburn||14 Monroe||14 Hendricks|
|38-40||16 Hepburn||16 Monroe||16 Hendricks|
|42-44||18 Hepburn||18 Monroe||18 Hendricks|
All our knickers come in standard UK dress sizes from size 8 - 18.
We currently offer all bikinis in sizes 8-18 and all swimsuits in sizes 8-20.
We are very aware that our size range is still relatively limited. We’re a small independent brand, and have focused initially on offering a highly comprehensive and effective set of products to women who wear dress sizes 8-20.
However we are very responsive to demand. If you would like to see more sizes in different types of products please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to hear from you.
For example, when we first launched back in June 2017 we tested customer demand for our products in sizes 8-16. So many of you got in touch to say that you were interested in our swimwear but needed larger sizes that within six months we expanded our size range up to UK size 20. We're really listening to you.
