Our sleek, elegant and versatile longsleeve swimsuit. For surfing, swimming or simply styling under denim shorts at the poolside bar this piece is designed to offer easy poolside style and what's more - it's incredibly flattering (especially if you are a little arm conscious).
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
This swimsuit is so well made and fits nicely that I'm actually looking forward to getting in the water this summer. I'm happy it's sustainably made and from a small business, and the exchange process (I needed to size up after two years of lockdowns and working from home) was really easy.
Really love the swimsuit but I did very nearly send this back when I first tried it on as really struggled with the tie on the zip. I fixed the issue with some ribbon but if this was updated it would be perfect. Fits well and really comfortable to wear
I wanted to give this swim suit some proper use before leaving a review. On the whole I love this swim suit, it’s the first suit I’ve had which I’ve not had to squish my bust in to, the long sleeves are wonderful and are not restrictive when swimming. The fit is wonderful and I feel good wearing this suit. The reason this is not a 5 start review is 2 fold - firstly, I am unable to do the zip up on my own so can only wear this suit when my husband is a round to zip me into it. Secondly, I find the gusset area moves around when I’m swimming, the gusset is not lined so doesn’t have the same stability of other swim suits I have.
This was a Christmas gift and it is lovely! Great fit, v flattering, and I’ve had so many compliments on how stylish and comfortable it looks. Thanks D&B!
This costume was the first D&B I coveted when I first discovered the brand back in 2017 - it's sat on my wishlist since and I'm so glad I finally took the plunge to buy it! I live in Cape Town, South Africa, with fair skin so the extra coverage gives me piece of mind to stay out in the water a little longer, while feeling incredibly sexy, supported and comfortable. The costume debuted at our Christmas Tidal swim and I've been seeking out water adventures to wear more of it since. I'm 5'11 and it fits perfectly in the body, while so supportive of the boobs (36H) - it's such a treat to have a costume that fits all over, and isn't baggy in the bum or suffocating in the chest. My only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner
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 BETTERDeb’s body story
"Sea swimming is my go-to for my peace in myself; for helping me to develop self-love and gratitude; for helping me to appreciate my life and being healthy.
Anyone can do it and the immediate contact with the natural world is like nothing else. After a sea swim I feel immense."

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.
