    Excellent Bathing Suit!

    I had been deliberating over buying a D&B swimsuit for ages. The ads and reviews looked good, but the price is quite high for something that you can't touch or see in person, but bit the bullet one day and ordered one. I love my teal cross-back swimsuit, I've taken it in the sea and pool, and no issues. It feels like really good quality, and something that should last years. I now plan to buy the long sleeved swimsuit for winter. As others have said in reviews, go up a size if you're longer or slightly wider in the torso/hips. I'm 5'4" pear shaped and the swimsuit is a snug fit. I love my new swimsuit, and look forward to purchasing the next one!

    Fantastic Customer Service

    I love this swimsuit and the colour is glorious. Unfortunately the fit wasn't quite right but the customer support was excellent. Good advice on alternative sizes and a super easy returns process. I shall definitely be back!

    I spent ages looking for a new swimsuit - I needed it to be practical for wild swimming, flattering for a post menopausal body and pretty to make me smile! The Monroe X back swimsuit in the gorgeous teal colour fits the bill perfectly. I was put off by the price initially but decided I was worth it and I’m so pleased I did! The quality of this swimsuit is in a different league to the off the peg ones I’d been considering. It holds everything firmly in place and is very flattering. I prefer my swimwear to have full bottom coverage and followed the suggestion to order a size up. I worried that this would then be too big for the rest of me but it’s a perfect fit in all areas! Well done and thank you Deakin & Blue, it’s 5 happy stars from me.

    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!
