Hello showstopper! This highly flattering, deep plunge swimsuit combines all the sustainable, sculpting and bust-supporting qualities you love in D&B swimsuits in a new style designed for maximum tan. Featuring built-in bust support and a low-cut back with slim, supportive straps. Say hello to our new favourite black swimsuit.
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
After initially buying the wrong size the customer service were really helpful in finding the right size. I swim at least once a week. The swimsuit feels great in the water . The straps do not fall down and the suit makes the body streamlined and secure. Does it turn me into an extra on bay-watch ? I would say that it is more functional than beautiful. If you want something that performs in the water ( I do a minimum of 30 lengths or swim between the groin in the sea) this is the suit for you. If you want to be on the cover of Vogue maybe not . I would certainly consider buying another as it is perfect for my needs and actually less expensive than my previous purchases
I’ve waited to write this review until I’d used the costume extensively. It is a very comfortable and flattering costume. Supportive enough for swimming but I wouldn’t like to walk too far in it! It has kept its shape well and although expensive it has already outlasted other costumes. I am very pleased with the purchase.
My first Deakin & Blue swimsuit and I loved it. Great fit: great fabric worn for a weeks holiday with lots of sea swimming and it kept its shape.
I have worn the plunge swimsuit in the sea a number of times now and it can get quite rough. However I always feel comfortably intact and never frumpy,which is hard at 64. The biggest complement was from my husband of 38 years who said I looked like Bridget Bardot coming out of the water
This is possibly my favourite swimsuit ever. It fits so well and is tough but still feminine. Everyone compliments this swimsuit when I wear it.
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.

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 email@example.com - 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.
