` Application lcd April 30,
To all /wwm it may concern.'
Be it 1known that l, Aman M. Gonot-rieur, a citizen of the United States, and resident of New flrleans, in the parish of Orleans and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful limprovements in l'rassires, of which the following is a specification. v
rlhe object of my invention 1s the construction of an article for womenis wear which shall serve as a combination brassiere and corset cover, and is especially adapted for confining stout figures although it may be used for any figure. ts adi/*antages will appear in the following description. v
The figure is an elevation of the invention llhe body of the garment is composed or satin, silk, linen or any fabric of sufncient body and strength for the purpose indicated. In the igure the garment 1, comprises an upper body compressing; portieri ll, a breast receiving portion 2 and a lower waist line confining portion 3. ln order to make the upper portion llkstronng, 1t 1s usually provided with an edging or strong lace or other material of considerable width and shoulder straps l2, the rear ends of which 18 are fastened inside of the garment. The breast receiving portion 2, preferably made onthe length of the material, 1s relatively large enough and so shaped that the confined flesh will be evenly spaced therein and will not rise above that area because of the strong lace or fabric of the body compressinp,` portion l, while the lowermest or waist line confining portion 3 holds the garment firmly in place. 1ft will be note-d that the lower portion 8 1s graduated, being' relatively narrow at (3 and wider at l where it meets the closure land 5. it has body and firmness, and may be a true hem formed by folding back the material, or be reinforced or merely plural thicknesses of silk or cloth. The closures e and 5, hemmed or otherwise if inforced, form fastening portions of sufiicient strength to hold the nent in place under the pressure appiied while in use and is preferably supplied with hooks 8 and eyes 9. lhe garment designed to open and close in thelback. A distinctive feature of the invention is the series of narts l() contracting the material at certain points. These darts are sewn in the garment after it is completed and may be altered by ripping' and readjust- Specification of Letters Patent.

ment made to suit the wearer as hereinafter explained. The darts are preferably graduated, the two central darts being relatively smaller than the adjacent ones and the end darts being likewise smaller as shown. :l have shown and described six darts but any number may be used to accomplish the object.
The novelty of the garment consists in the above features and the adjustment thereof is as follows:
This class of garment is generally worn over the corset by women where it is desired tol compress a port-ion of the figure within the confines of the gaanent. The fault with garments of this type heretofore has been that the flesh has been forced out of its natural position, accentuating` the bust or the upper back.
My device is longer that the usual brassire, the lower hem encircling the waist. The darts 10 serve to confine the body and permit a wide range of adjustment because the darts are placed in the garment after it is made. These darts can easily be ripped, without ripping` the garment and made larger or smaller as required by the wearer or their number and location can be increased and changed. The closures tand 5 must be strongbecause of the applied pressure. The straps serve to keep the garment in place and to hold the upper border firm. The re-inforcement of the lace with the strap prevents bulging` of flesh at that part. With this garment the figure is firmly but comfortably helc.
rIhe top of the garment thus presses the busts of the wearer downwardly; to take care of the bust and flesh that is so forced downward the lower front of the garment is flanked on each side by darts which make a fullness between them and create a sors of a pocket for the reception of the parts of the body pushed down by the upper part of the garment. The darts have, therefore, a two-fold purpose, not only 'to make the lower front portion of the garment pocket-like as explained above, to receive vpart of the body, but they also serve to make the lower portion of the garment cirumferentially form-fitting. The top portions retain the compressed portion of the body without forcing' the flesh to the back and front, while the lower hem and darts serve to hold the garment firmly in place. llfomen with stout figures llO can wear lany form of dress with this supporter, particularly evening, or low` neck dresses, as it is not open to the objection of the usual garment of this class in which the ilesh is forced above the supporter iront and back.
