Not sure about size?
  • This style is shorter in the body length. If you are long in the body, we recommend going up a dress size. For a fuller fit on the bottom we also recommend going up a dress size. 
  • Features luxe under-bust elastic for lift and shape.
  • Round neckline to sit just above the cleavage.
  • Medium, flattering cut on the leg.
  • Our Hendricks model Darcy usually wears a UK size 12-14 and a 36G bra. Shown here wearing a Deakin and Blue size 14 Hendricks. (She's sized up for additional length in the body and for good coverage on the bottom).
  • Super soft, high quality, sustainable Italian Lycra®.
  • Made from recycled yarn ECONYL® from regenerated waste such as old fishing nets and industrial plastic scraps.
  • Soft, stretchy, light and breathable. Offers a perfect blend of muscular compression and comfort.

  • Designed and manufactured responsibly in London, UK.
  • Rinse after every use and hang to dry. Machine wash at 40° after every 2-3 uses. See full details on how to care for your swimwear.

    It really fits!

    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!

    Best ever swimsuits

    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!

    Confidence Boost

    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.
