Bikini Parade in Australia Sets World Record

Raw video: 357 scantily-clad women set new Guinness world record for largest bikini parade in Australia


More than 350 bikini-clad women strutted their stuff at Australia's Surfers Paradise Beach Sunday in an effort to break the Guinness World Record for largest bikini parade.

With 357 participants, the parade beat the record of 331 set last year in the Cayman Islands, the Herald Sun reported.

"Today, 361 girls walked through the counter, but there had to be a few disqualifications because they were not wearing bikinis," Australian Guinness World Record adjudicator Chris Sheedy said before officially declaring the record broken.

Local councilor Susie Douglas touted the event and said it was fitting the Gold Coast held the record, the Herald Sun reported. 

"It shows off that we have beautiful beaches, we've got a great foreshore and got healthy young women and a sense of fun."
