A Strapless What? G-String? But How...?

No one can argue that SheFinds is a fan of panty lines. We’ve told you about Jockey’s Modern Brief ($8.50), a silky-smooth, seamless underwear; the C-String which is held up by a just small wire in the back, and nude underpinnings to keep it neat under white. So you’ll understand why our immediate reaction to Shibue’s Strapless G-String ($25-$30) sounded something like, “Yeessss!” rather than, “Huh?”

It wasn’t until we read the company’s advertising of the product as being “perfect for form-fitting dresses, pole dancing, and sunbathing” that we started to wonder if we’re really the kind of clientele who’d enjoy such a product. Before we talk about our experience with the uber-bizarre strapless g-string, though, let’s take a little look-see at it:

A little creepy, right? Like a pretty maxipad, or the most popular panties of a magical stripper.

Here’s how it works: the front and back of the panties are stuck to the body with double-sided tape (one just hopes it’s super adhesive). But before you judge Shibue Couture’s little oddity, check out the reported improvements in panty line exposure:



SheFinds knows that g-strings sometimes show – they escape from your jeans when you bend over, or they squeeze your lovey-dovey-handles just a wee too much, giving you two sets of hips. And in that sense, Shibue Couture has invented a smart ware for the modern woman. On the other hand, I’m wearing my strapless g-string right now, and evaluation in the mirror reveals that I look…kinda kinky, and more than a little absurd (though we imagine hubby will really dig the new skivvies).
