You loved this flattering style so much this summer that we're introducing it in one of our favourite colours - plum. Designed to adapt perfectly from lengths and laps to holiday lounging. With built-in bust support and a flattering scoop back for maximum tan, this piece is fast becoming a swim-wardrobe staple.
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
I love my swimsuit! It's soo comfy and stylish. No more boobs popping out of ill designed bra inserts. Thank you .
As someone who is short, round and well endowed in the chest department I have always struggled to find swimwear that not only fits but feels secure when in the water. The Hendricks fit is fantastic, although it was quite hard to get into the first time I wore it, it has got easier. It is just a little loose round the top of the legs but where the fit really matters it's perfect. OK it cost a lot - but everytime I think about missing my free to enter swimming session for us maturer people I just think that it cost too much not get a regular airing - and it's too fabulous not to be seen!
I have bought a size up in this style - Hendricks 16 in X back. I find it fits better for both bust size and bottom coverage. I have the Signature swimsuit in 14 Hendricks and it’s plenty big enough, so there is a difference depending on style. I love this swimsuit- on holiday I never resort to bra a pants any more, just wear these lovely cossies under clothes, so much more comfortable. Also have Sweetheart in a size 16 (I am normally clothes size 14 with 34H bra size). All the styles are so comfortable and supportive- no digging in bra straps, just soft, stretchy straps which support a heavy bust easily. Love them all and they are worth every penny!
After trialling many swimwear brands including a well known indie competitor, I found the swimsuit from Deakin & Blue a revelation. Not only is it comfortable but it’s really flattering… so much so I swam much more on holiday this year than I normally would without the added comfort of a wetsuit. Would definitely recommend. You may think it’s pricey, but it’s well worth it. This comes from. 51yr old going through the inevitable menopausal weight gain.
Love this swimsuit! Got the x-back in maroon and Hendricks style. It's super comfortable, flattering and nice and thick. Already eying up my next purchase!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org - 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.
