You loved this flattering style so much this summer that we're introducing it in showstopping scarlet. 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-wardroble staple.
Our Monroe shape is designed to fit C-E cup busts.
I love my new Monroe Red Cross Back swimsuit It fits so well, so flattering and most importantly age appropriate. It’s reassuring that nothing will be revealed I don’t want to reveal
Fabric is gorgeous and the colour is great. Feels great to wear but slightly short for me in the body so would get a slightly larger size next time
Having waited for the restock I was so delighted to be able to snaffle this beauty of a costume for our family trip to the IOW. It’s my 3rd D&B and I love them all although this is my firm favourite so far. I love the colour! It’s incredibly comfortable whilst offering a sublime fit which hugs your curves and made me feel fabulously confident to walk the beach in only a costume. Such a gift!
I am so pleased with the Monroe X-back swimming costume. The quality is excellent and the style is very flattering. For keen swimmers it's the perfect combination of elegance and practicality.
This costume is simply amazing ! It gives shape and support while remaining comfortable and flexible . It is worth every penny and I am just about to order from the new collection . This is definitely a brand to watch and follow , wonderful sustainable and just beautiful

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.
