Deadstock Designs: Reversible X-Back Swimsuit Tropical Forest - Monroe

Size Guide

You love our X-Back style so much, that we had to make it in this limited-edition reversible design. Super-soft, beautifully tailored and supportive, it's made to adapt from lengths and laps to holiday lounging. Choose from the sizzling Tropical print or sultry Forest Green to suit your mood.

D&B Deadstock Designs are made from brand-new fabric leftover from the fashion industry. We’ve saved this fabric from landfill so it can fulfil its destiny as a beautiful swimsuit – limited edition, sustainable and joyful.

Our Monroe shape fits C-E cup busts. For AA-B busts, shop The Hepburn. For F-HH busts, shop The Hendricks.

    Great fit and comfortable

    I love this swimsuit. Good quality and fit with great support but looks good too. Gave me so much confidence on the beach. My only complaint is someone forgot to tell whoever made it that is is designed to be reversible. The label was so tightly sewn in that I had to buy stitch pickers and even then it took about an hour to remove. This is my third purchase from D&B and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. Worth every penny.

    Fabulous costume

    This is the third costume I have bought from Deakin and Blue. I have the monroe and find it true to size. Excellent quality, it washes well , keeping it’s shape and colour ( I don’t wear them in chlorinated pools) . These costumes may be more expensive than other brands , but I feel their sustainability and quality make it worthwhile spending a little more .
