This elegant new style combines a classic navy swimsuit with a sweetheart neckline with contrast plum panels to celebrate your waist and elongate your legs. Featuring built-in bust support and slim but supportive straps, why not tuck the straps in for strap-free tanning?
Our Hendricks shape is designed to fit F-HH cup busts.
I bought this swimsuit after much thought, as it was not the cheapest option (with the 10% discount it was still over a £100, which is the most I have ever paid for a cossie). I'd been eyeing up Deakin and Blue swimmers for some years, when their wonderful colour combinations and rather attractive retro/ vintage styling caught my eye in a magazine article. Since I recently moved three miles from a beach and was planning on a bit of sploshing about in the sea, I thought I would take the plunge (sorry!) and finally empty the piggy bank and buy one. I used the online sizing guidance, which helpfully directed me towards the Hendricks, size 12. (To give an indication of my measurements - which may help other would-be buyers - I'm about 5ft 2 tall, my bra size is a 32FF, my bust measurement is 98 cms, my waist is 77 cms and my under bust is 76 cms.) The Hendricks size 12 was a perfect fit. I've swum around in the beautiful briny sea in my new cossie several times and I've really enjoyed wearing it - lovely colours, flattering cut, very comfortable around the bust and bum. The material feels pleasantly silky to the touch, but seems robust and is fairly quick to dry. It looks like a costume which will last, so money well-spent. It would be great to see a version with a slightly longer 'short' leg or skirt too - which would tempt me to buy another. Thank you.
I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat. Expensive, yes, but well worth the money because of the superior material and colours. It looks and FEELS expensive.
Love this swim suit possibly the best i have ever owned
I go swimming every day and this swimming costume has been great. For someone who has curves it fits really well and I like the fact that the website has real women modelling them. Add the fact that they are sustainable - what’s not to love!
For this style I had to go up a size - I wear a 34H bra and needed the 16 Hendricks to fit for my boobs. The 14 Hendricks is my usual size. The Sweetheart is really comfortable and has great seat coverage, no riding up at all. As always, the fabric is strong and supportive though soft to touch. Love these swimsuits and I can’t imagine buying any other brand now!
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 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 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.
