Kiwi Girl Guides set world record with 170,000-bra chain

Melbourne, Mon, 20 Feb 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Feb 20 (ANI): Girl Guides in New Zealand's town of Dragaville have decided to put it on the map as "Bra-gaville" with their record breaking effort of stringing nearly 170,000 bras together.


The last brassiere was hooked to its neighbour late on Sunday night to create the chain of 169,324 supporting undergarments.


The chain, laid out in a zig-zag pattern at the town's Memorial Park, was about 135 kilometres long and breaks the previous world record of 166,625 bras set in Australia three years ago, the Herald Sun reported.


The project was part of Girl Guides New Zealand and the Breast Cancer Foundation's efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer.


It took two years to collect the bras, which were donated from across New Zealand, Australia, Britain and the US.


About 100 Girl Guides took two days to connect the bras by their hooks and eyes.


Chain instigator Robyn Martinovich said she was happy but relieved the project was over.


She said she had seen enough bras to last her a lifetime, and so had her husband.


Martinovich had no idea where the suggestion of calling Dargaville "Bra-gaville" came from, but thought it was hilarious.


The best bras will be donated to women in the Pacific Islands and Africa.


Local politicians will verify the record, the details of which will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records. (ANI)
