    Best swimsuit ever!

    After years of mulling it over, I finally bought my first Deakin & Blue swimsuit and I love it. The quality is great and it’s very flattering (size 12 Hendricks fits well on me - 32GG bra size). Highly recommended!

    Really good quality - especially for bigger busts. I really struggle getting swimwear that is supportive and comfortable and this swimsuit is fab. I’m a 36HH - so pretty big boobs and not to have any weird fastenings or wires is fabulous. I do find they are a little short on the body for me but only a little. Feel I’m pulling it down at the front before I reveal a little too much in public. But still a quality product

    Essential Swimsuit Hendricks 18

    I love this swimsuit! I thought very hard about purchasing because it was quite an investment. The fabric is beautiful, and made me feel sleek and sporty. Fits perfectly around the midriff and bottom. I do however wish it was adjustable in some way. While I really like the way the straps attach at the back, when the suit is wet, the mesh stretches and bags a little, leaving my g-cups sadly unsupported. I have considered taking up the straps but am unsure about whether I would tear the net fabric. I shall probably end up buying a smaller size, because I really do love the style - it feels highly functional and stylish, which is hard to find beyond sports wear that frequently does not cater for a range of sizes. It was beautifully packaged, and I appreciated the note warning me about the cracking of seams as I tried it on, and for the first few wears.

    Excellent quality and great design, I was anxious having tried so many in my size and they just weren’t substantial enough. The size 20 is perfect. Worn it in the sea many times.

    Joyous costume!

    Superb costume which feels great, holds well and gives confidence enough to swim in the sea and march back out again, exhilarated.
