We're delighted to introduce this much loved style in a bright, bold Cobalt. 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! Lots of compliments about the cross-back from friends at my swimming pool. I couldn't decide between cobalt and plum - both gorgeous, strong colours. I'm between cup size E/F. I first ordered a Monroe (cup C-E) because other swimsuits have quite a lot of stretch usually, but the D&B fabric is different: quite a firm hold, which once you get used to makes you feel wonderful! No saggy bits at all :) However, this means the Monroe wasn't quite roomy enough for me. I then ordered a Hendricks (cup F-H) in Plum which is a better fit AND now have the choice of colour too!
My 3rd purchase - they last for ages and never fail to give support and I have lost count of the number of questions “ where did you get your swimsuit?” Thank you Deakin and Blue for making my swimming feel new !
I’ve never spent so much on a swimming costume and was a little dubious of the hype, but it’s true - this X-back is the most comfortable I’ve ever worn - and supportive of my big bust. Worth every penny.
This is my second costume. I cannot fault the quality and fit , superb.
The blue swimsuit is lovely and comfy. For a change the colour is just as it looks on the advert. It fits well and I feel secure and comfortable in it. When I have the spare funds I will buy another in a different colour as I swim a lot. The packaging it arrived in was lovely too.
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.
