You loved this flattering style so much this summer that we're introducing it in classic black. 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 Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
I love this swimsuit. Bra size 32F so really struggle to find suitable swimwear and fit. The swimsuit is superb quality and provides excellent support. Customer service awesome. Thank you.
The x back swimsuit in black Munroe is a flattering shape, my only comment is that it is too short in the body.
This is my third purchase of the X back costume. Two for me, teal and black and one for my daughter. We are both keen swimmers and these costumes are flattering and practical. For my second I went up a size to gain a longer body length. The larger size is still a great fit as the fabric is robust and stretchy and it smooths out all the bumps. So if you need a longer body length I recommend that you go up a size.
This is the second Deakin & Blue swim cozzie I have purchased and I liked it straight away. This suit is extremely well made and provides a great fit. I love the flattering design… especially for my older, rounder body!
I am size 12/14 on the high street. I bought a crossover back in teal, size 14. It is lovely, feels sturdy and strong. Quite thick and a good overall body shape. I have kept it, however it is slightly short in the body. I bought another in black in the Black Friday sale. This time I bought a 16. The body length is better, and it is still a relatively neat fit. Both are very flattering. I would highly recommend, but think carefully about your body length and buy accordingly.
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 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.
