    A swimming costume to be proud of !

    My 4 th swimsuit from Deakin and Blue - they basically put all other swimsuits in the shade ! Love the strength and hold of their swimwear and they stay in place I have had mastectomy and reconstructive surgery in the past - and a bit “‘lopsided” but one would never know wearing this swimwear With Deakin and Blue - swimming in the blue feels new !

    Plum, but too much bum

    Really like the fit at the front, but wanted much more coverage on my bum. Had to be sure to pull it down before exiting the water. Will only wear it in the company of good friends.

    A wonderful swimsuit

    This is my second Deakinand Blue swimsuit and once again it is so good- comfortable to wear and support in the right places! I was awre that I needed to improve my fitness ( and perhaps tone up and lose a little weight) and wanted to find some exercise that I could do. I was advised to try swimming as I have issues with arthritic joints but was put off by the thought of wearing a swimsuit after so many years. Then I found Deakin and Blue looked at your size guide and bought a swimsuit.I am now swimming regularly, have improved my fitness and feel so much better about myself. I have even had to invest in a new swimsuit because I have gone down a size. Thank you for having swimsuits that are designed for real people!

    Comfy, confident and crushing through the waves

    What can I say? I think I’ve found my cool. All the extra bits of me are contained in a very fetching and streamline fashion. I think I’m faster and way cooler
