    So glamorous!

    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!

    An outstanding company

    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.

    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

    Fantastic costume

    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.
