Steal Lucy's sporty style in a bra by Ellesse
Lucy Mecklenburgh’s collaboration with Ellesse is still going strong. In a recent Instagram snap, Lucy is wearing the ‘Allenarsi’ bra top, which is part of her Recycled collection.
Created from recycled materials, the feminine and functional silhouette is delivered in a lightweight, water-resistant fabric. The silver foil branding adds a pretty touch, which we love!
Unfortunately this black sports bra has sold out, but you can click (right) to buy it in grey. The lighter shade looks just as great and would be a welcome addition to any sportswear wardrobe.
You can also find further bras in the carousel below, where we’ve selected options from Under Armour, Adidas, Puma and Forever 21.
Lucy tweeted the photo with the caption: 'I'm joining British Lion eggs, attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most people dipping egg soldiers simultaneously!'
The reality TV star posed for the snap in a form-fitting black Ellesse sports bra, with her brunette bobbed hair tied up in a half up half down look.
Fans were horrified by Lucy's bizarre breakfast, as the boiled eggs are traditionally accompanied by soldiers made out of bread.
