Summer is officially on route and whilst you may not be planning for the holidays we once imagined, we are very much looking forward to longer days, warmer weather and even a bit of lockdown sunbathing (from a balcony if needs must..) whilst we wait for things to return to normal.
This year our Spring Summer 20 collection introduces a range of new tan-friendly styles which will also be raring to go once you're back in the pool or the ocean later this year. These new styles incorporate low cut necklines and slim but supportive straps alongside all the sculpting, bust-supporting and sustainable qualities you've come to know and trust in D&B swimwear.
In truth, we designed these styles for days spent playing in the lido or lounging carefree by the water (or ideally, a bit of both) but they absolutely work for paddling pool dips and garden sunbathing too! So whether you're planning for some sunshine at home or preparing for that long awaited return to the pool, we promise these new designs will fuel your radiance without compromising support or comfort. Take a look at our top three for a day in the sun.
Hello showstopper! This new swimsuit style offers a sexy, plunge neckline and a low-cut back with slim, supportive straps to ensure maximum tanning. Available in our three signature curve sizes with tailored levels of support and coverage in each: this style is designed to ensure you feel confident and comfortable. Made from double-lined, butter soft Lycra® and featuring full bottom coverage this is a style to feel incredible in. Available in classic black and spring-inspired willow.
A brand new shape for 2020, the plunge bikini features a flattering, plunge neckline and a low cut back for maximum tan without compromising support. Made from our favourite high stretch, breathable fabric this bikini is easy to wear: whether you're planning on relaxing with a good book or playing in the sunshine.
Featuring a heat-proof metal clasp and built in bust support tailored to our three curve sizes (for AA-B cup busts: the Hepburn, for C-E cup busts: the Monroe and for F-HH cup busts: the Hendricks). Mix and match with low rise (regular) or high waisted (high waister) bikini bottoms to suit your personal style. Our bikini bottoms are a cheekier cut on the bottom so size up for more coverage. Now available in plum, willow and lido.
The elegant sweetheart swimsuit features a charming sweetheart neckline and slim but support straps for all-day-in-the-sun comfort. Low-cut under the arms, this suit promises easy chaf-free movement or, if you're lounging with a good book, why not tuck the straps in for strap-free tanning?
Featuring D&B's signature contrast panels on the hips and waist to celebrate your shape, this style is effortlessly flattering - so you can focus on relaxing and soaking up those rays. With built-in bust support and full bottom coverage, this is an easy, comfortable style designed to be effortless. Available in classic navy & plum or our hero Liberty print Beach Meadow, made using Liberty fabrics.
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.
