    Fabulous Fit, Fabulous Colour!

    This is my first Deakin & Blue swimsuit but I’m sure it won’t be my last. I just love wearing it - the fit is perfect and very elegant. So nice not to have those horrible foam inserts on the bust! The panelling gently sculpts the body and the crossover back is stunning. And just the right shade of red. Perfect!

    Worth the price!

    I went for a size up because I have a longer torso and would recommend doing the same if you are the same. It has great support, really soft fabric, and is sustainably and ethically made!

    I love my new Monroe Red Cross Back swimsuit It fits so well, so flattering and most importantly age appropriate. It’s reassuring that nothing will be revealed I don’t want to reveal

    Great swimsuit

    Fabric is gorgeous and the colour is great. Feels great to wear but slightly short for me in the body so would get a slightly larger size next time

    My very own Monroe moment on the IOW.

    Having waited for the restock I was so delighted to be able to snaffle this beauty of a costume for our family trip to the IOW. It’s my 3rd D&B and I love them all although this is my firm favourite so far. I love the colour! It’s incredibly comfortable whilst offering a sublime fit which hugs your curves and made me feel fabulously confident to walk the beach in only a costume. Such a gift!
