One of our favourite swimsuit styles, the X-Back, now available in a playful Liberty print featuring brightly coloured zoo animals. 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 fun piece is a swim-wardrobe staple. Made with Liberty Fabrics.
Our Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
lovely swimsuit that is very comfortable.
I'm delighted with my costume - such beautiful colour and design. Because I am quite long-bodied, when I first put it on I thought it was going to be a real 'bum -creeper' - but in fact it isn't. It's well designed and sits nicely on the body. Most costumes need the odd tug downwards now and then. I love it and would definitely go to Deakin and Blue again. Also love the ads!
This is divine. Fabric is vibrant bright and classy. Support is great and excellent coverage. Bottom has good coverage. Normally wear a uk 10/12 32 F cup. Ordered a 12 Monroe and it's perfect. Can't wait to get in the water.
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.
FEEL BETTERMinreet's body story
"I think the way to overcome barriers is by trying to educate the people in the community about why it's good for you to be able to do something outdoors. While swimming in itself is good for you, it's about being able to understand the basics of how you can stay safe in cold water. It's just such a good skill to have. Swimming is a life skill.
Also, community is very important and I think that it’s nice to swim together with people from the same community because you understand the barriers and the challenges and you're able to help support each other and encourage each other."
MOVE BETTERThe X(-Back) marks the spot
Designed to give you confidence for swimming, surfing or simply sunbathing. Here's how:
1. Soft, supportive double-lined fabric
2. Built-in bust support & shape
3. Flattering scooped X-Back

Do betterWhat we’re made of
All our swimwear is made from ECONYL® - a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from post-consumer waste such as old fishing nets and industrial plastic. So our cossies are ocean friendly, too!
We only work with Oeko-Tex® certified suppliers and environmentally responsible partners who pay fairly, use chemicals safely and minimise waste.

Here for a good time and a long time; our swimwear is thoughtfully designed to last season after season, swim after swim
We have over 500 5* reviews for our products on our website, Google & Facebook - our customers love what we do!
We offer free delivery and returns in the UK on all orders over £100: even more reason to treat yourself
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 email@example.com - 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.
