How far would you go to banish visible panty lines?
A lingerie company has created what may be the smallest underwear ever - the Shibue: a strapless panty held in place using a soft adhesive gel.
Unlike regular g-strings or underwear that is pulled on over the legs, the Shibue simply covers your private part from front to back - and bodycon loving celebrities can’t get enough.
Barely there: The Shibue is tiny underwear worn front to back, banishing panty lines for good
Itsy bitsy: The knickers stick on with a soft adhesive gel, making them more comfortable to wear than a c-string
How to wear: Simply remove the protective liner, stick on to your skin and secure at the back
The Shibue is a continuation of the c-string: another barely there design that looks somewhat similar to a headband.
But unlike the Shibue the c-string holds its shape with a piece of plastic.
‘Shibue’s are held in place by a washable and re-usable soft silicone gel adhesive across the top front and top back of the panty leaving nothing but a smooth, clean silhouette on your sides,’ the product’s website reads.
Stiff competition: The c-string is a similar design, but uses a piece of plastic to keep in place
Would you dare? The Shibue covers your private parts from front to back, unlike a regular g-string that has straps
Making it stick: A storage liner is supplied to protect the adhesive gel between wears
‘Shibue’s are being worn in the movies, TV, red carpet and even on the runway.’
Among those embracing the trend are catwalk models, who strut the runway in the barely there designs and models Kate Upton and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Express.co.uk reported.
The Shibue Instagram page is littered with photos of women in sheer dresses, dresses that split up to the waist and curve hugging designs - their Shibue invisible beneath.

Going commando: Jesinta Campbell recently admitted she went without underwear on the red carpet because you could see her panty line
With the product available online, it seems only a matter of time before Shibue’s make it in to the lingerie drawers of Australian women.
The product could be a quick fix for red-carpet regulars, such as David Joned ambassador Jesinta Campbell, who recently admitted to going ‘commando’ on the Logies red carpet.
‘I have a story from my very first Logies: I wore this beautiful Burberry dress, it was very tightly fitted, and as I was going onto the red carpet I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror,’ she told The Today Show.
‘I took them off — I went commando — and put them in my clutch.’
