A swim-wardrobe staple combining a flattering soft V-neckline and our signature sculpting bonded fabric in bright cobalt blue. The Essential Swimsuit features built-in bust support so you can feel fantastic wherever your swimsuit takes you.
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
The fit of this costume is perfect. I had one of the same design and wore it every day for three years so I thought I’d buy a different colour. It’s gorgeous and supportive and worth every penny.
After a succession of other makes of swimsuits , I saved up to give this a try. I love it. The extra thick double layer of fabric makes it a snug fit that keeps everything where it should be when I’m jumping about in the pool and the straps are really comfy. Love that I can wash it in the machine too. It cost more than I would usually spend, but I will definitely be investing in another one next year.
I've had huge difficulty finding a costume that fits my bust ( 38 HH) and yours did the trick. Love the colour. Like the style. Love the fact that it's really thick material so will be good for open water swimming. Feels very sturdy. The only thing I wasn't 100% happy with is the fit round my bottom - bit loose. Quite pricey but hopefully it will last for years, as so well-made.
Comfy supportive and flattering Would like it in more colours
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 BETTERLindsay’s body story
"I cannot explain why I've always loved water, but I now love going in the cold water too. If you see pictures of me, I'm always smiling and that's genuine. It's just this thing that creates laughter.
And in the water, we're all equal. And that's the wonderful thing. It doesn't matter what shape you are, what age you are, what size you are, what bits of you work and bits of you don't work."

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.
