    Very pleased with my new suit

    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).

    Supportive, flattering and comfortable

    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.

    Best costume

    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.

    Well made

    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
