Our modern take on a classic swim piece. Our flattering x-back swimsuit in teal is designed to adapt perfectly from lengths and laps to holiday lounging. With built-in bust support and a flattering scoop back for maximum tan, this piece is fast becoming a summer staple.
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
Following a friend’s assurance, I ordered a Hendricks x back. I was pretty sure it wouldn’t keep my bosoms in check as I usually need scaffolding. This, plus recent surgery for breast cancer meant I was sceptical to say the least, that it would be comfy and hold my chesticles up. I’m delighted to say it was both. I recently did a week’s swim holiday in Greece where I swam 5km every day. I can safely say this cossie was superb. I know it’s a bit spenny but it’s worth every penny. The only slight complaint is it sits quite high up my bum and I feel I want to pull it down a lot of the time…but minor complaint. It also washes well and has really kept its shape. Thank you Deakin & Blue for producing something for real women who love to swim
The costume is simply lush! And wow the colour is simply devine! Fit is excellent (which surprised me) and it exudes quality!
Having a large bust and tummy, it was really difficult to get flattering, supportive swimwear without underwires until I came across Deakin & Blue. This swimming cossie sits comfortably across my tummy and holds it in, whilst the top half gives amazing support to my bust. The detail on the back is very flattering too. It’s so easy to wear and I feel properly encased without being restricted.
I love it. Beautiful cossie, lovely material, supportive, perfect fit, colour is gorgeous. Thanks guys!
I really like this swimsuit , however the sizing isn’t perfect for me . I tried a 16 and an 18 ; the 18 was quite loose around the bottom, so I went with the 16 . It is quite neat around the bottom, slightly higher cut than I would like , so I suppose on reflection that I would need a size 17 , had such a thing existed! However , I would still buy another suit as I hate to swim in an underwired costume and this one is both supportive and covering .
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 BETTERNatasha’s body story
"I love that I can go for a 10 mile hike before breakfast. I love that I can be active for my family and keep up with them. My body allows me to bond with other like-minded people and share these activities together.
And my body has enabled me to have children. So I may be a little overweight but I am so incredibly grateful for the body I have."

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 email@example.com - 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.
