The world record for the largest bikini parade was broken today in the City of the Gold Coast, Australia
The event was organised by a local newspaper, the Gold Coast Bulletin.
The bikini-clad women started the parade at a Gold Coast shopping mall, after which the women paraded for the required distance of 1 mile (1.6 kilometres) along Surfers Paradise beach.
Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records were there to confirm that with 357 women in the procession, a new record had been set.
The previous record was set by the Cayman Islands in June 2010 with 331 participants.
In all, 357 women wore bikinis to strut their stuff in a parade from Cavill Avenue on to the Surfers Paradise beach.
Four had to be disqualified for being overdressed.
The feat smashed the previous record of 331 set in the Cayman Islands last year.
Surfers Paradise councillor Susie Douglas said it was fitting the Gold Coast held the record.
"We have beautiful beaches ... we've got a great foreshore and got healthy young women and a sense of fun," she said.
