About 1000 swimmers bared all at Cobblers Beach on Sunday morning for the Sydney Skinny, setting a new world record for the largest nude ocean swim.
“This event is easily misunderstood. Itâ€™s not just about running around naked.”
In its second year, the event attracted young and old including a man in a wheelchair who was assisted by his carer and two women survivors of mastectomies.
Event creator Nigel Marsh said the event aims to promote a positive body image and was summed up by â€œunbelievably happy looksâ€ on the faces of the two women who spotted each other out of the crowd of nude bathers and embraced.
Mr Marsh said the community swim was a chance to â€œbe utterly authentic and stick two fingers up at all those ludicrous, airbrushed images of bodily perfection in the magazinesâ€.
