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 Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
I thought about buying a Deakin and Blue swimsuit for sometime, frequently revisiting the pages. I finally decided to buy one and picked the Essential in black in style Munro. I used the measuring guide to select both the style and size. I was a little reluctant as the measuring guide put me a size up from where I expected to be (I am an apple shape). However I believed in the guide and went for it. The size turned out to be perfect. The material is much thicker than other swimsuits that I've bought, but I think that's OK. I'm looking forward to lots of use.
The fit of this is superb and true to size. It’s thicker than many swimsuits but feels fabulous in the water and clearly looks nice enough to attract compliments! Money well spent.
Delighted with my new swimming costume. It actually fits and has given me the confidence to get back out there and enjoy the water.
Very comfortable to really swim in, and in my opinion quite glamorous too
Loving my new swimsuit but unfortunately after buying it I have discovered I have breast cancer and will have to have a mastectomy - do you or would you consider doing mastectomy swimwear?
Hi Judy, Thanks so much for your review and I'm so sorry to hear about your breast cancer. We can sew a pocket into your swimsuit to accommodate a prosthetic. We offer this service completely free of charge. Please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help arrange this for you. Thanks again and all best wishes, Team D&B
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.
Our award-winning swimwear has been featured in The Guardian, The Times, The Telegraph, Women’s Health & more
Here for a good time and a long time; our swimwear is thoughtfully designed to last season after season, swim after swim

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.
