Pools as Art - Five Stunning UK Pools We Can't Stop Looking At
September 30, 2018
It probably goes without saying that we are big fans of pools and lidos.
In fact, it’s a real perk of the job that we get to spend so much time visiting new locations around the country (all in the name of market research, of course) where we can test out the different pools & become familiar with each venue’s own characteristics – the layout, the tiles, the temperature & the changing rooms.
These five pools aren’t necessarily ones we’d recommend visiting for your next dip (in particular Victoria Baths – ahem, there’s no water) although some absolutely are.
Instead, we’ve picked five pools whose architecture we can’t get enough of…
1. Victoria Baths, Manchester

A Grade II listed building in Manchester.
Originally opened in 1906 and closed in 1993.
Today the site is used for art exhibitions, film screenings, weddings and more.
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:
For AA-B cup busts: the Hepburn
For C-E cup busts: the Monroe
For F-HH cup busts: the Hendricks
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.
BIKINI TOP SIZING
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
Band Size (inches)
All our knickers come in standard UK dress sizes from size 8 - 18.
BIGGER AND SMALLER SIZES
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.
