    Lovely swimsuit

    It’s a great swimsuit, keeps everything in and feels good quality. I use it for lane swimming and Aquafit. My only comment is I’m 5’5”” and a normal size 14. For me it’s a little short in the body, but a bigger size would be too big everywhere else. I still love it.

    Lovely, flattering swimsuit

    I started swimming after I retired and now swim swim most days. I've bought 2 or 3 swimming costumes or tankinis in the last couple of years, and every one has changed colour within a couple of months, even if they said they were chlorine resistant. I've had my Deakin & Blue costume and it's still perfect. I'm a size 16 - 18 38F and went for a Hendricks in 16 because the 18 was a bit big. It's a lovely fit and I think it's quite flattering. I'll definitely buy another swimsuit from Deakin & Blue - I'd love some shorts that are shorter than the ones you currently sell.

    Best swimsuit ever!

    After years of mulling it over, I finally bought my first Deakin & Blue swimsuit and I love it. The quality is great and it’s very flattering (size 12 Hendricks fits well on me - 32GG bra size). Highly recommended!

    Really good quality - especially for bigger busts. I really struggle getting swimwear that is supportive and comfortable and this swimsuit is fab. I’m a 36HH - so pretty big boobs and not to have any weird fastenings or wires is fabulous. I do find they are a little short on the body for me but only a little. Feel I’m pulling it down at the front before I reveal a little too much in public. But still a quality product
