Carry on Girls was a relative failure at the box office. It was this failure which led to a reduction in the number of Carry Ons from two films a year (for most years of the series up to and including 1972) to one film a year. It also led to the cancellation of the successful Carry on Christmas annual TV show.

The opening credits feature cartoon representations of beauty pageant entrants with puns for titles: Miss Conduct, Miss Represent, Miss Conception, Miss Hap, Miss Fortune, Miss Used, Miss Shaped, Miss Trust, Miss Handled, Miss Manage, Miss Placed, Miss Spent, Miss Stake, Miss Demeanour, and Miss Adventure. Each "beauty queen" is depicted in a manner befitting their name, for example Miss Conduct is behaving inappropriately with a judge, Miss Conception is pregnant, Miss Hap and Miss Fortune suffer wardrobe malfunctions, and so on.
As with many of the Carry On films the cinema version was cut by the BBFC to receive an 'A' (PG) certificate. Some dialogue was replaced, including 'knee trembler' (which was changed to 'snogging') and the fight between Hope and Dawn was reduced to remove shots of Hope attempting to pull Dawn's underwear off. The latter scene was fully restored in later video/DVD releases.
