EastEnders Melissa Suffield parades curves in lingerie for body confident snap
EastEnders star Melissa Suffield wowed fans as she stripped down to her lingerie to show that people can look "fierce" despite a bit of bloating.
The actress – who found fame as Lucy Beale in the soap – posted a long message on Instagram telling her followers that she experienced a bit of bloating every now and then because of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) but that it didn't mean she couldn't look fabulous.
The post was accompanied by a cute video of the star modelling several gorgeous dresses – and some skimpy red underwear.
In some of the segments Melissa's long blonde hair cascaded over her shoulders, but in others she'd swept it into an elegant up do.
"MIDI DRESSES FOR BLOATED TUMMIES @newlook," the 29-year-old wrote.
"I made sure to film this on a VERY bloated day for me (these roll around occasionally due to PCOS if I've not been eating well).
"But I really wanted to show you that A) bloating is N O R M A L and B) you can still look fierce with a bloat!"
Melissa, who had a baby boy in 2020, went on: "It's tough having a tummy that bloats easily – you start and end the day completely different sizes! So I've rounded up some dresses from New Look that are comfy from morning until night, no matter how the day goes.
"I didn't want everything to be a swing dress, so I've been sure to choose a range of styles, including the dreaded bodycon."
The star's fans loved her body confident post.
"You look amazing!" one person posted.
Another dropped a string of fire emojis to tell the actress she looked hot.
"You're so annoying, everything looks amazing on you haha," joked another.
Others urged her to keep all of the dresses, saying that she looked "super beautiful".
Melissa is best known for playing Lucy in the BBC soap from 2004 to 2010. Her other screen credits include Poirot and Casualty.
It comes as her former EastEnders co-star Kim Medcalf is set to make a huge return to Walford as Sam Mitchell – taking over from Danniella Westbrook.
