The 25-year-old has been praised for her natural curves that she showed off at the Miss USA pageant but in a new interview she says that her bikini wasn’t as flattering as it could have been.
Mekayla Diehl has a stunning figure and now she’s revealing more about the itty-bitty white and green bikini that has made headlines around the world.
Mekayla Diehl Speaks Out About Her Tiny Bikini
Mekayla has been singled out as having one of the most relatable and gorgeous figures from the pageant on June 8 and now she tells Fox & Friends that she’s shocked because the bikini wasn’t her best!
“The funny thing is that the bikini did not fit me well,” she said. “And people made a point to tell me that! But if that’s the only negative … then I’ll take it. I think the inspiration to some young girls has been wonderful.”
She actually first spoke out about her body on Twitter after learning that people were totally into how she looked!
So cool 😂 I worked hard on my body without obsessing over being too skinny and I couldn’t be more proud. http://t.co/DpGsz0vFgE

Mekayla: I Was Sexually Abused Growing Up
Mekayla has actually revealed that she was sexually abused by a family friend as a child but that she has used that to empower her today.
“Because I hope they can look at me and see that, yes, I’m a pageant girl, but I had a dream and I worked very, very hard for it,” she said. “And I didn’t let my past define me.”
We are just more and more impressed with her every single time she speaks!
