    Great hardwearing costume, excellent service

    Really happy with my new costume. Accurate and quick customer service when I needed help with sizing. The costume is sturdy, well made and flattering... yet also looks fashionable. Happy to use for lengths in the pool as well as on the beach. Will definitely buy again from D&B.

    The Essential Fits like a glove

    After trying on three different styles I decided on the essential swimsuit for pool swimming . The customer service team were fantastic and allowed me the time to try on and compare the different sizes before returning. I love the snug and shaping fit of the swimsuit, it feels great to wear and to swim in . Thanks so much

    Fantastic x back costume

    Fits well , performs well for lap swimming I’m confident it will be equally as good for seaside dipping also taking it on a trip to outer Hebrides in April. Fabric feels thicker and is truly supportive in all the right places.

    X back swimsuit - Monroe

    A great swimsuit. I swim in the local pool two or three times a week. The swimsuit is comfortable and stays in place. I bought a size larger as I have quite a long body.
