Skimpy G-String Sets Record At Rio's Carnival
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
On this Fat Tuesday, we bring you news of the slimmest costume ever in Rio de Janeiro's Carnival parade. A dancer managed to samba along the route clad only in a glittery silver headdress, silver arm bands, and a G-string measuring barely an inch wide. For some perspective on Carnival wear, a record was broken here. Up to now, the thinnest G-string on a samba dancer was an inch and a half.
