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 Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
Love my new x-back scarlet swimsuit. Fits like a glove with very good support. The purchasing process was straightforward and customer services were super friendly and helpful. The sizing method is innovative - but it works! I was happy to be a 14 Monroe - I felt like Marilyn!
Deakin and Blue have just the very best customer service, nothing is too much trouble and they will continue to help until you find the perfect swim suit. I ordered a couple of different styles to try out, I’m not young, not thin and not tall!!! Returning one costume was easy, and pre paid and the refund was processed promptly. As for the swimming costume - well it has yet to have it’s first dip in the sea, but it is so well made from a quality fabric, in a style and colour that is just lovely, it will make me feel more confident to finally, after not swimming for decades, get into the water again now we have moved near the coast. This is how all businesses should be.
Lovely colour and it feels very flattering to wear.
I love my new costume - great colour and comfortable for lane swimming. I wasn't sure whether I would need a 12 or 14 so took measurements and followed instructions - 14 Monroe fits perfectly
I love this costume. I love everything about it. The colour is wonderful. The cut is really flattering. It keeps its shape well. It’s my third Deakin & Blue swimsuit- I have the black and plum colour ways- but love the teal.
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 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.
