Celeb stylist shares tips on how to look like Lucy Mecklenburgh on the beach

It's no surprise that Lucy Mecklenburgh won best bikini body of 2013 – the gorgeous brunette has been spotted showing off her slender physique in a number of swimsuit ensembles this summer that are sure to have made ex-fiancé Mario Falcone realise what he's missing.

Following the emotional break up between the two TOWIE stars, Lucy checked in to heartbreak hotel and underwent a gruelling fitness regime in what sources dubbed a bid to boost her self-confidence.

 
 

 

 Despite critics saying the star adopted unhealthy diet tactics, Lucy is adamant her fitness regime was healthy and sensible – and we agree; her svelte hourglass figure has curves in all the right places.
 
We've done some digging and found out that you can buy this particular bikini from Swimwear365. Celebrity stylist Helen Boyle has also filmed a set of exclusive videos for Swimwear365 that offer top tips on the best swimwear to choose dependent on your body shape.


 
 

 


If you want to know how Lucy maximises those curves on the beach then read on as we've picked out Helen's top tips for working it poolside:

• Maximise your tiny waist by emphasising your hips and bust with the tropical print trend or bright florals

• A halter-neck strap will compliment your curved shape and help support your chest

• Graphic print swimsuits are so hot right now – opt for tassle details or cut outs on your middle to draw attention to that nippy waist.



 
Lucy works the tropical trend to the maximum here, the eclectic mix of red, green and blue shades works well with her tan and the inclusion of beads gives her look just the right touch of glam.
