Deakin & Blue launch new swimsuit to help keep Mental Health Swims afloat

£15 from the sale of every D&B Vitamin Sea Swimsuit will go directly to Mental Health Swims so they can keep bringing the healing power of cold water to more people

Sustainable swimwear brand Deakin & Blue has launched a new swimsuit of which £15 of every sale will go directly to mental health peer support community Mental Health Swims (MHS).

Mental Health Swims host free, inclusive and safe swim meet-ups nationwide supporting thousands
of people with their mental wellbeing through the therapeutic power of swimming. They have
ambitious plans to help even more of those suffering with mental health issues in 2024 but
without funding these aspirations are at risk.

As dedicated supporters of MHS, Deakin & Blue, who share the same values of championing mental health & inclusivity, have designed the Vitamin Sea Suit. £15 from the sale of every suit will go directly to MHS.

The Vitamin Sea Suit is a limited edition version of D&B’s best-selling X-Back Swimsuit and comes in a reversible colourway of forest green and black. Like all D&B styles, the swimsuit is responsibly made in London from ocean waste.

The Vitamin Sea Swimsuit is:

  • Made responsibly in East London, UK
  • Made from ECONYL® – a 100% regenerated nylon yarn made from ocean & consumer waste
  • Hyper-resistant to chlorine, salt-water, UV rays and oils
  • Shipped to customers in 100% recyclable packaging
  • Available in sizes: 8-24, AA-HH cup
  • Retail price: £130
