GARMENT SUPPORT.
Annlication filed March-.5, L923. .Serial No. 622,946,
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, ISABEL L KENsGATIis, a citizen ofthe United-States, residing at Washington, District ofColumbia. have in vented certain new and useful Improvements in Garment Supports, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates I ,to camisoles, brassieres, ladies lingerie, dresses or ;-siinilar articles of --apparel which. are supported or hung from theshoul'ders of theearer,-and more; particularly} to the; provision. of-mea-ns for supporting a,.-garment. of; this character in; such a. manner; as; to obviate the tendency of such supporting means to-slide-oflf from the shoulders of the wearergandiat the same time having said means-:contractingpr;gatheringcertain parts; of said garment.
.Afurther object fithe invention is the provision of aisupporting means comprising a strap, tape or ribbon formed preferably from a vsingle v continuous piece, and which can be -very readily applied or removed when the garment is-to be-ilaun'deredor-a newstringutilized and whichwillbe attractive in appearance. 7 I
Illustrative embod ments of the. invention are shownn theaaccolnpanying drawing, 1n
which Fig.1 isaperspectiveyiew ofthe garment on a wearers body With the supporting means in place. 7
'Figs. 2 and 3 are.plan,viewsoftwo'forms of the invention with the garment omitted.
Fig. at is a sectional View of; the uppenpart of the garment of Fig. 1 showing-the manner-of introducing the supporting .means into the top of the garment.
'Fig. 5 isa cross-section on theline-.55 of ZFig, .4.
Fig. 6- is a plan viewof a modifiediform of garment and :supporting means removed from the, body. I c Figs.,-7, 8, 9 andlO are plan views of different iforms ofthe-,invention ith-the gar- ;ment omitted.
As shown-in Figs. 1, Qand 3 theilpper garment-portion 3-isprovided-with a tubular portion 4-,extending completely around theatop of.the -garment.tho it may be ornitted at the arm pit portions and is formed byheinming thematerial as sit-.5 and then stitching the material; together as; at -6.
.InFigs. .1, 2 and 3,'the .device comprisesa strap, i b n, tap 1 c rd h ving *a end po tio -rifl d,sti ehedte othemriset stened to the. top front portion of the garment at]. A portion 8.01. the ribbonis t en passed rearwardly over the shoulder and enters the tubularportion. thru an ?Opening 9 "positioned approximately .oppositezthe point]. A .portion 10. ofthe ribbonjsthen threaded thru the portion 4 ,for. a distance along the back of .the'. garment untilni't reaches a;point.=adjacent the opposite 'shoulder Where it leavesthe tubular portionlthru an. opening similar to 9 and is ,passed forardly over the last mentioned :sho1il d,er
. .formingthe stnap ,.portion 11. Theribbon thenenters the .front: tubular,.portion as at 12,.and has a portion .13 .:extending across the f'ront ofithegarment to iaipoint 14 Where it .leaVes the tubular portion and -extends rear-weirdly over: the shoulder .to form J the portion '15. The ribbon again enters ;the tubular portion 4 at. the back of the; garment approximately opposite. the point 14:..a11d, is threaded across [the back of the garment ftormingthe-portion 16 ,until it reachesa point galdj acent the opposite-shoulder where it leavesthe,tubular'portion and isexten'ded over 1 the shoulder forming the ribbon ,p ortion;l7. LTheend"18. is'then'fastened as by tying or stitching to z the front -of t the .garment as .at 19 which isQsimilar to, the fastenins-' ,F-rom the drawing it will :be. seen that Fig. '3 diifersfrom Fig. 2. in: that insteadbf havingthe ends 6 and ,18. fastened to the garment .as at land .19 respectively they may. enter the :tubulary portion A at approxi- In-atelythe points '7 and 19 and threaded thru the same toward the centeryfront of the garment. forming. the ribbon portions 20 and:21. The ends ofthe ribbon mayQthen ,leavethe tubulanportion .atthe front ,and center of the garment and therebetied 'in a bow O1' f kll0l3. Asshown inFig; '4 a'lo0p22. may be used inordertokeep different portions of the ribbon separated from each other at. .a point where they enter the tubular portion. .A-nd tho. the drawing shows a.;:p1urality.ofribbon portions extendingthru;the,,sa1ne tubular portion nevertheless it shouldbe understood that a.p1ur,alityv of tubular. portions; may be a formed. as by L Spaced row of.=sti hi g and ,each-adaptedto' receivea single ribbon.
Asshoivn in Fig. 6 the upper garment portion. 30 has a.highly decorativenedging 3,1 which is -;provi ded with a plurality --%of openings and passageways 32 to which the;
v is threaded thru a section of the rear edging ribbon is adapted to be slidably threaded or tied tho it may be omitted at the armpit portions. D
In the form. of the invention shown in Figs. 6 and 7 the end 33 of the ribbon is tied or otherwise fastened to the edging 31 as at up over the shoulder to the point 43 on the rear edging forming the portion 44; then it is threaded thru a section of the rear edging to-the point 45 from where it extends forwardly and diagonally up over the shouli der to the point 46 onthe front edging forming respectively the ribbon portions 4? and 48 respectively. At the point 46 the ribbon i end 49 is tied and bowed or otherwise fastened. It will be noted that the form shown in Fig. 8 differs from that of Fig. 7 only in that the ends 33 and 49 instead of being fastened at the points 34 and 46v continue into the front edging and are threaded therethru toward each other until they reach the front and center of the garment where they may be tied to each other and bowed and form the ribbon portions 50 and 51.
The form of theinvention shown in Fig. 9 is similar to that shown in Fig. S the in Fig. 9 the portions 36 and 48 are continuously connected by the portion 52 and do not each terminate in ends 33 and 49, while in Fig. 9 instead of having the continuous portion42 the portions 53, and 54 are provided .which terminate in the ends 55 and 56 respectively.
The supporting and contracting means shown in Fig. 10 does not have the shoulder strap portions crossing each other over the shoulders. In this figure two pairs of parallel shoulder strap portions 5758 and 5960 are provided. The portions 61 and 62 engage the upper edge of the garment similarly to 47 and 38 and the portions 63, 64 and 65 engage the upper edge of the garment similarly to 52, 53 and 54, respectively,
while the ends 66 and 67 are adapted to be tied and bowed to each other. 7
. It will of course be understood that in all cases the ribbon slidably engages the tops of the garments and that the forms shown in Figs. 7, 8, 9-and 10 may be used with the garment of Fig. 1 while the forms shown in Fi s2 and 3 may be used with the garment of 'g. 6.
It is found that'a strap formed of ribbon preferably,continuous and positioned as described is very comfortable to wear and has no tendency to slip off the shoulders, thus relieving the wearer of the necessity of awkwardrand embarrassing movements required t replace the ordinary form of suspension means in position.
A further advantage of'this garment support consists in the fact that it avoids the tearing of the garment to which it is attached it yields with the movements of the wearer and draws or contracts certain parts of the garment to the body.
Minor changes may be made in the physical embodiment of the invention Without departing from its spirit.
I claim 1. In combination with a garment adapted to encircle a wearers body, a continuous support having a portion threaded thru and slidably engaging a portion of the garment and a plurality'of portions adapted to extend over each of the Wearers shoulders with the arm-pit portions of said garment free of said support.
