    Honestly, can’t praise my new swimwear enough. Fits perfectly, comfortable and supportive and looks fab. I emailed the customer service team following my order and they were so quick to respond and very helpful. Will definitely be making another purchase in future

    I really wanted swim shorts. I saw some in your recent sale , thought I could buy these size 12 and squeeze into them ….. but after following your real life stories for so long I opted to buy the full price shorts in size 16 . They coordinate with all of my Deakin and Blue swimwear ( 4 costumes and the sumptuous Liberty bikini ) . I now own a comfortable addition to my swimwear wardrobe which will not sit in the back of the drawer awaiting that magical, mythical day when I fit a size 12. I use my collection every single day as I am out in all weathers. I can also testify that they work well in saunas too .

    Added Warmth in Winter

    Initially bought these swim shorts to wear over my long sleeved swimsuit in an effort to fool my body into thinking I was wearing a shortie wetsuit. They do add an extra bit of warmth especially round the thighs and much easier to get off with cold wet hands after outdoor swimming. Am going to but a bikini bra or tankini to wear with them in the warmer months.
