WALDEMAR KOPS, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO NEMO CIRCLE! COM PANY, INCL, CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

Application filed November'l'i, 1920. Serial No. 424,614.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that T, WALDEMAR Kors, a citizen. of the United States, residing in the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and

a State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Brassieres, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a brassiere and more especially tothat type of brassieres which are adapted to act as a support for parts of the body of the wearer as well as to serve the purpose of a corset cover. The brassieres of this type which have heretofore been constructed, as I am aware, in-

1 clude multi-piece garments, which in some instances have been made in front and back parts adapted to be adjusted about the waist of the wearer from the front or the back or from either position, while in other instances, as in one'of my copending applica-' tions, the parts of the garment are side members rather than front and back members and are adapted to be adjusted on the body at the sides thereof at the waistline. 2 The object of my present invention is the provision of a brassiere which accomplishes these purposes and fulfills these functions and which is substantially a one piece garment, the construction preferably being such that the adjustment is effected at the sides of the body and at the waistline, and when adjusted to position the garment, as in other similar cases, acts to support the sides of the wearer and the busts and also serves as a corset cover.

The rment made in accordance with this invention will be hereinafter more particularly described in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which. ee Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the garment in position for use on the body.

Fig. '2 is an elevation of the back of the garment when in position for use, and

Fig. 3 is a plan view, looking at the inner to side of the garment when placed in a flat condition.

.In carrying out the invention the garment made in accordance therewith preferably comprises a back member and front members with extensions thereof. with all these parts connected so as to form a continuous integral structure adapted to fit around the body of the wearer and to overlap at the front and side portions thereof. M As illustrated the back member is indicated preferably in the right hand side of the at 10 and is connected to members 11 and 12,

the members 10 and 11 being connected along lines of stitching 18, while the members 10 and 12 are connected along similar lines of stitching indicated at 17. The front members are indicated as 13 and 14 respectively and between these parts at substantially the axillary line of the garment the same is provided with stay members 19 and 20, it being understood that the parts 11 and 13 and the parts 12 and 14 are suitably connected at the adjacent edges thereof. member 15 extends from the front member 13 and is connected thereto by a line of stitching indicated at 21, and similarly the member 16 extends from the front member 14 and is connected thereto by a line of stitching 22. The front member 13 is provided with an upward extension 23 and the side member 11 with a similar extension 24 and these extensions 23 and 24 are connected by a line of stitching 25 .to form a shoulder strap. Similarly inthe opposite side of the garment the front member 14 is provided with an extension 26 and the side 80 member 12 with an extension 27 these extension members 26 and 27 being connected by a line of stitching 28 to form the other shoulder strap.

On the inner side of the garment adjacent the lower edge thereof and at the base or bottom of the stay member 19 I employ a strap 29 extending forwardly and provided with a hook 30. This, as is illustrated, is

a0 garment. At the extremity of the extension 16 I also provide a strap 31 fitted with a catch 32 and provided with an adjusting buckle 33. This strap 31 and the catch 32 are adapted to cooperate with the strap 29 and the hook 3O engaging with the catch 32in the adjustment of the garment to position. Similarly, but on the outer side of the garment there is a strap 34 secured at the lower end or base of the stay 20 extending forwardly and fitted with a catch 35. At the extremity of the extension 15 there is a strap 36 provided with a hook 37 and an adjusting buckle 38, these parts bein adapted to cooperate with the strap 34 an catch 35 in the further adjustment of the garment to position on the body by the hook 37 engaging with the catch 35.

The extension 15 may also be fitted with a depending strap 39 having a catch 40 to engage with the stud of a corset or to be secured by engagement with any other device to maintain this part of the brassiere in position and prevent it from creeping upwardly on the body of the wearer.

As shown in Fig. 3 I may employ a strap 41 attached to the parts 13 and 15 and fitted with a hook 42 adapted to enga e with an 10 eyelet 43 or similar catch pre erably seholes provided in thegarment beneath the shoulder straps and the parts passed around the body of the wearer and secured in place. Obviously from the foregoing description the catch 32 is first engaged with the hook and these parts adjusted so that the tension is exerted from the right hand side;

' then in a similar manner the right hand side of the garment at the front thereof is caused to overla the extension 16 in the 30 portion of the I out member 14 and the 1 hook 37 made to engage with the catch and theseparts adjusted to position so that there is an oppositely disposed pull and tension applied on the garment from the left hand side thereof to counteract and counterbalance the similar tension and pull from the right hand side thereof, with the front parts of the garment acting as supporters for the busts and the sides with the stays therein to perform a similar function in regard to the sides of the body.

I claim as my invention:

A brassiere comprising a garment having a body member adapted to extend around the body of the wearer including overlapping portions at the front and sides of the wearer, attaching devices at the extremities of the overlapping portions, an attaching device at the inner axillar waistline portion of the garment at one side thereof, and an attaching device at the outer axillar waistline portion of the garment at the opposite side thereof, the attaching device at the extremity of one overlapping portion being adapted to be connected to the attaching devloe at the inner axillar waistline portion of the garment and the attaching device at the extremit of the other overlapping portion being a apted to engage the attaching device at the outer axillar waistline portion of the garment to connect and secure the same in position on the bod of the wearer.

Signed by me thls 9th day of November, 1920.
