A swim-wardrobe staple combining a flattering soft V-neckline and our signature sculpting bonded fabric in bright cobalt blue. The Essential Swimsuit features 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.
A fabulous and comfortable swimsuit from a great independent brand. I bought the Monroe. I am 12-14 top and 16 bottom. It fits beautifully and will give me confidence on holiday and in the local pool. Highly recommended.
This swimsuit feels like a second skin. The fit is great and I can move without anything moving around. And what is even better, it looks fantastic.
I love my new swimsuit. It feels like robust material. It's a great shape and holds my bust in place well and isn't too revealing.
LOVE my cobalt blue monroe. Fits very well and keeps my core warm during my cold water swims
I tried on lots of swimsuits and D&B’s were by far the best quality with exceptional customer service. I wish I’d asked for advice on sizing, and wriggled a bit more whilst trying this on! I think I’m quite long in the body and have discovered in action that I don’t have as much rear coverage as I would have liked!
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.

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.
