X-Back Swimsuit Plum - Hendricks

Size Guide

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.


This item is currently in production in our London studio. Preorder for dispatch w/c 7th June.

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.
  • Durable and designed to last. Our chosen Lycra® is twice as resistant to chlorine, salt water and oils than standard Lycra. Full UV protection.
  • 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.

    Lovely swimsuit

    Really like the x-back Hendricks in plum, it's a great and flattering fit, particularly on the top half. I have found the legs to be cut a little too loosely for my liking though. Fabric is beautifully soft and a great colour.

    Soooo comfy

    As someone with 34 J boobs I absolutely love the support and comfort of this swimsuit. Good bye underwired swimsuits! Hello Deakin & Blue!

    Great costume

    This is my second costume from Deakin and Blue and I love it just as much as my Essential Swimsuit. It is comfortable and a good fit and stays in place while I am swimming. It can pull up a bit high at the top of the legs when I first put it on which is why I have given four stars. I bought a Hendricks size 18.

    So comfortable & stylish!

    The loveliest swimsuit I’ve ever owned, and there’s been a few! The support was second to none, which I really appreciate as an F cup, who loathes wired cups. Super comfortable when swimming freestyle. Love that the material is eco friendly. My only regret is that I was ****** enough to leave it in the shower at my local pool and they binned it. Devastating!
