Melanie Bracewell was never fat or overweight to begin with. To say it more pointedly, she was never one of those celebrities that the public would be expecting to go on a weight loss journey and then would scrutinize closely to see how they 'handle' their body. Bracewell was always thin. If not thin, she was of average weight and she looked a little curvy as in genuinely curvy and not chubby.
So, the public never expected Melanie Bracewell to embark on a weight loss journey anytime soon. That is why when she lost a bit of weight recently, people were surprised. She did not lose much because she did not have much to lose anyway. But the little bit that she lost, it was noticeable.
Fans were naturally curious to know how she lost weight and whether it was something intended or something that just happened. Melanie Bracewell has not acknowledged her weight loss speculations and until she does and shares how she got slimmer, we won't know about it.
