Hello showstopper! This highly flattering, deep plunge swimsuit combines all the sustainable, sculpting and bust-supporting qualities you love in D&B swimsuits in a new style designed for maximum tan. Featuring built-in bust support and a low-cut back with slim, supportive straps. Say hello to our new favourite black swimsuit.
Our Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
Purchased this for my holiday, little unsure as to whether it would be too revealing and offer enough support …. It wasn’t and it did…..swam in it everyday and felt good….if there could be one slight improvement it would be to make the body length just a little longer….
Everything about this swimsuit is just the best. For most of my life, I have avoided getting into a swimsuit at all costs. Finally I have found a swimsuit that is functional but also makes me feel completely fabulous. Thank you Deakin & Blue!
Brought my brand new Monroe to a holiday in Spain, where it was put through its paces in the pool and sea. What a perfect amount of coverage! I felt comfortable and looked elegant, and yet it didn’t pinch or creep even kayaking and snorkelling. So happy I found this company!
The best swimsuits I’ve owned..
Gorgeous colour and fit. Not easy for the larger bust sized woman to find a plunge that flatters. But this one does. Fits true to size too.
At Deakin and Blue we're reinventing swimwear: developing pieces that are transformational in how they feel, how they move and how they are made.
FEEL BETTERAdya's body story
" I think that when I discovered kayaking, I started to become more open. When I started doing sport, I saw people engaging with each other in a very different way. And so, I've kind of shed – almost to the other extreme – all that cultural baggage. I’ve been reflecting more on that transformation recently, because I sometimes think of my younger self and how different she was – very naïve, very innocent, always trying to be a wallflower and happy to be indoors. People who meet me now don’t believe it, but it's true. People would have to push me to talk to people; I just wasn’t that confident.
Now, I love. just not caring about how other people feel about things that actually have nothing to do with them. It's a powerful feeling, on reflection."

We have over 500 5* reviews for our products on our website, Google & Facebook - our customers love what we do!
We offer free delivery and returns in the UK on all orders over £100: even more reason to treat yourself
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.
