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 a flattering scoop back for maximum tan this piece is fast becoming a summer staple.
Our Hepburn shape is designed to fit AA-B cup busts.
I really like this swimsuit. It feels really good quality, with a nice thickness to the material. The shape around the legs is also really flattering. One thing I would say is it is quite short in the body so I had to size up.
I have never paid so much for a swim suit but so far loving it. Great quality & fit. Fab. And delivery all good.
I have not yet worn my new swim suit, but am really looking forward to it. I have tried it on, however, and it is SO comfortable and very flattering to my 60+ body! The quality is really top-notch in every way and the fabric feels wonderful against my skin. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a really good swim costume!
I have had nothing but compliments since wearing my new Deakin and Blue swimsuit to Aquafit class. Stylish and a beautiful colour, it gives me the opportunity to promote the use of recycled materials for clothing, which is a splendid idea, and one that more people need to consider when looking at clothes.
I first saw the brand Deakin & Blue in the comments section of a Sunday Times article listing their best swimsuits and a so glad I googled you for more info. My new teal Hepburn swimsuit arrived promptly, it’s beautifully finished and fits my size 12 perfectly. It’s so good to find an ethical company supplying well made products.
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.

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.
