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.
  • 78% Recycled Polyamide, 22% Elastane.

    The Essential Fits like a glove

    After trying on three different styles I decided on the essential swimsuit for pool swimming . The customer service team were fantastic and allowed me the time to try on and compare the different sizes before returning. I love the snug and shaping fit of the swimsuit, it feels great to wear and to swim in . Thanks so much

    Fantastic!

    I have started swimming regularly in the sea and after a bit of research decided to invest in a swimsuit from Deakin and Blue. It’s brilliant, nice thick fabric, doesn’t ride up, pulls everything in and looks fantastic- everyone asks where I got it from! Well worth it.
