A procession of 357 bikini-clad women along a hot and sunny beach is the stuff that Lynx-fuelled dreams are made of, but it became a reality on Australia’s Gold Coast when the record for the world’s longest bikini parade was smashed yesterday.
The previous record had been held by the Cayman Islands, which had managed to drum up a sizeable line of 322 ladies wearing bikinis, but Australia is now the proud owner of the record after upping the ante by 35 semi-naked girls.
Official adjudicators did cause controversy during Australia’s world record attempt when they disqualified four of the procession on the grounds of not wearing bikinis, but the record was secured when the final count revealed a total of 357 had slipped on their bikinis correctly and paraded down the area’s Surfers’ Paradise beach, a hotspot for young beach lovers.
The event attracted sponsorship from Surfers Paradise Alliance and the Gold Coast Bulletin, but it seemed to be devoid of an official headline sponsorship from a swimwear brand – surely a trick was missed there? Any swimwear brands interested in sponsoring Lingerie Insight’s attempt to snatch the record for the UK please get in touch. We’re thinking a procession along the golden sands of Aberdeen in December would be sure to attract a winning number of entrants.
