You loved this flattering style so much this summer that we're introducing it in one of our favourite colours - plum. Designed to adapt perfectly from lengths and laps to holiday lounging. With built-in bust support and a flattering scoop back for maximum tan, this piece is fast becoming a swim-wardrobe staple.
Our Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
I was quite skeptical before buying - I have always bought Speedo in the past and wasn't sure if my new swimsuit was intended for pools as well as oceans. However, I am really pleased - very high quality, great fit and colour (plum).
I'm really enjoying this swimsuit. The material feels more substantial than others I've had from other brands. This is my second swimsuit from D&B because they seem to last a lot longer than others I've tried. I swim 3-4 times a week in a chlorinated pool and the last swimsuit lasted more than 6 months - with a quick rinse in the shower after each swim. It's also excellent support for a DD cup.
Having been lacking in mobility for a number of months due to a foot operation I was keen to get back to some wild swimming which I'd started the year before. However, I really needed a wee confidence boost as I didn't feel very body positive. I saw this site recommended on a wild swimming FB page so decided to try one of the swimsuits. It has to be my favourite swimsuit ever, so flattering and the sizing/style tips are really helpful. Thanks for giving me back my confidence! And if you are ordering definitely size up for length.
Flattering when on and very well made. A bit more of a struggle to get into than standard swimwear as the fabric has less stretch but the benefits are there once on and wobbly bits are well supported
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 BETTERRachel's body story
"So, I read this article a while ago by called The Third Thing by Donald Hall. It says that in a relationship, there has to be a third thing. Like, it's not good for us to just gaze at one another. You have your friends, they have their friends and you have your shared friends, but then you have your shared thing that you gaze upon together. I read that, and I was like, yes, that's exactly it. For us, it's the sea. The sea is the thing that we gaze upon together, that we appreciate together."
MOVE BETTERThe X(-Back) marks the spot

Here for a good time and a long time; our swimwear is thoughtfully designed to last season after season, swim after swim
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.
