Not sure about size?
  • Fits true to size or ever so slightly big. 
  • This style is slightly longer in the body than other styles. If you're short in the body, go down a dress size.
  • Flattering soft V-neckline with gentle sweetheart shape across the bust.
  • Low-cut under the arms for active use without chaffing.
  • Medium cut on the leg with flattering but full bottom coverage.
  • Our Monroe model Amanda is 5'10 / 178cm tall. She usually wears a UK size 14 and a 36D bra. Shown here wearing a Deakin and Blue size 14 Monroe.
  • Super soft, high quality, sustainable Italian bonded Lycra® with neckline and hips highlighted in soft & sculpting Italian powernet mesh.
  • Lycra® made from a recycled yarn called ECONYL® - made from regenerated waste such as old fishing nets and industrial plastic scraps.
  • Durable and designed to last. Our chosen Lycra® is twice as resistant to chlorine, salt water and oils than standard Lycra. Full UV protection.
  • Designed and manufactured responsibly in London, UK.
  • Rinse after every use and hang to dry. Machine wash at 40° after every 2-3 uses. See full details on how to care for your swimwear.

    Instant confidence

    The most flattering swimsuit I’ve ever worn. I finally feel confident to be seen in swimwear and will no longer decline invites to swim or be the person looking after the belongings at the beach when everyone else is in the water. I’ve missed so many opportunities to swim in amazing places because I was so self conscious in my swimwear. I’m no longer that person and my swimsuit is the reason why ❤️

    Such a flattering swimsuit

    I love my new swimsuit, I was unsure of sizing & received excellent & prompt advice when I emailed. This swimsuit is very flattering with plenty of support & comfort. I will definitely be making another purchase.

    essential swimsuit black, monroe

    This is a lovely and comfortable swimsuit. it comes the nearest to what I would describe as an elegant looking swimsuit, and looks certainly very feminine. It does not rub when swimming in it, even longer distances, and is a joy to wear.
