Twitter was abuzz with comments praising Miss Indiana and her “normal” looking body.
When Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl strutted during the swimsuit portion of the pageant, her curvier-than-some bikini body made the twitterverse burst into applause.
The 25-year-old did not make the semifinals, but she made a legion of new fans.
Here are some of the reactions online.
I love how Miss Indiana isn't crazy skinny

The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!
