Our best-selling and award-winning Signature Swimsuit in classic navy and black is a perfect cossie for your weekly swim and a good quality, trusted holiday staple. You'll love the built-in bust support and the flattering sweetheart neckline. Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
Don't forget to go up a dress size in this style as the fit comes up a little small.
This is the best! Being heavy busted I have always felt ‘exposed’ in other swimsuits. This is structured and the double layer makes it warm in this cold weather. I love the higher neck. I ordered 20 which I needed for the top half but do find it a little baggy around the bum area. I have my eye on another already!
By far the best swimming costume I've ever owned!! Love it would like a black one too
I love this swimsuit so much. I have three D&Bs but this is my favourite for regular pool swimming. Everything is held in place, bum is covered, boobs are secure. It was tight getting it on the first time but it really does fit perfectly. I get lots of compliments on it!
I bought a Signature swimsuit in navy. I love it. I'm top heavy so got the Hendricks - it is great to have each size catering for different shapes. I also love the ethos and responsible approach of the company (they pay their workers at least the Living Wage, which is more than many large, established companies do).
As a larger busted woman I've always struggled to find a flattering and comfortable swimming costume that I felt confident in. The Deakin & Blue Hendricks costume fits so perfectly and doesn't have the uncomfortable underwriting that other costumes do. I feel so good in it and will never shy away from the pool again!
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.
FEEL BETTERVix’s body story
"The last few years I'm trying to see myself the way that I would see other people, and it's hard. I think after a lifetime of judging yourself so harshly and seeing yourself in a particular way, it's difficult to change. But it's possible. And I think what's making it easier now is that I realise that we have a responsibility as adults to the younger generation to say 'it doesn't matter'."

We have over 500 5* reviews for our products on our website, Google & Facebook - our customers love what we do!
We offer free delivery and returns in the UK on all orders over £100: even more reason to treat yourself
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.
