A swim-wardrobe staple combining a flattering soft V-neckline and our signature mesh in a sculpting black swimsuit with built-in bust support so you can feel fantastic wherever your swimsuit takes you.
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
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
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.
Superb costume which feels great, holds well and gives confidence enough to swim in the sea and march back out again, exhilarated.
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 BETTERFran’s body story
"Open water swimming has helped me to accept who I am. It's taken many years to learn to love my own body: it’s strength, it’s weaknesses, the secrets behind my eyes.
Changing my belief about my body has been a long, difficult battle but I am so proud of everything it stands for and has overcome."

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 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.
