WALDEMAR KOPS, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO KOPS BROS. INC., A. CORPORA- TION OF NEW YORK.

APPAREL CORSET.

Application filed April 7,

To all whom it may coneerm.

Be it known that I, WALDEMAR Kors, a citizen of the United States, residing in the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Apparel Corsets, of which the following is a specification.

My present invention relates to an apparel corset and more particularly to a garment of the low busted type and one in which no lacing devices are employed for adjusting the tension of the garment and maintaining the same in position on the body of the wearer. The object of the invention is the provision of a garment of this type provided with means for yieldingly maintaining the upper portions of the arment in position at approximately the waistline of the wearer, maintaining the lower portions of the garment yieldingly in position around the thighs of the wearer and yieldingly producing a flattening efl'ect across the buttocks of the wearer and at the same time causing the "garment to smoothly conform to the body.

In carrying out the invention to produce the desired results I prefer to employ elastic inserts in both the forward side sections of the garment extending from the upper to the lower edges thereof, these elastic inserts being so arranged that a circumferential tension is applied both at the upper and the lower portions of the garment and a diagonal tension is applied to the intermediate portions of the garment, as will be hereinafter more particularly described.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view illustrating the use of a garment made in accordance with my present invention, and

Fig. 2 is a plan view showing the construction' of the garment with the same placed in a flat position.

By reference to the drawing, it will be seen that in carrying out the invention the corset is a closed back garment and the parts thereof adapted to be connected to each other at the front of the garment. The corset includes front sections 10 and 11 in which there are fitted front steels 12 and 13. In the customary manner the steel 12 is fitted with a series of spaced studs and the steel 13 with a corresponding series of similarly 1924; Serial No. 704,599.

section l8 and back sections 19 and 20..

These back sections are suitably connected to each other and may be fitted with stays 21 and 22. The back sections 18, 19 and 20 extend upwardly from the lower edge of the garment to a line appreciably spaced from the upper edge of the garment and the back sections are completed by a circumferentially extending waistband member 23 suitably connected at its lower edge to the upper edges of these back sections, it being understood that the stays 21 and 22 extend from the upper edges of the back sections to points appreciably distant from the lower edges thereof.

Completing the continuity of the garment and in the forward side sections thereof I employ a plurality of elastic straps or other similaryielding members. As'illustrated on the left side of the garment there is an elastic tension strap 24, the upper edge of which completes the continuity of the garment and which -elastic stra extends from the front section 10 to the ack section 19. The lower edge of this tension strap 24 is indicated by a dotted line designated by 25. In the lower portion of the left side of the garment there is also an elastic tension strap 26 extending circumferentially of the garment and the lower edge of this strap completes the continuity of the lower edge of the arment. This strap extends between the ont section 10 and the back. section 19 and the upper edge thereof is indicated by the dotted line 27. The intermediate tions of the front section 10 and the back section 19 are connected by diagonally placed elastic tension straps 28 and 29. As illustrated thesev straps are connected at adjacent edges by a line of stitching 30. It will be understood, however, that instead of employing two straps thus connected one or even-a greater number of straps may be employed. Also as illustrated, these dipor- 19 and a portion of the upper part of the strap 28 overlies a portion of the lower part of the strap 24 while a portion of the lower part of the strap 29 overlies a portion of the upper part of the strap 26. All these straps, that is the straps 24:, 26, 28 and 29 are connected at corresponding forward edges to the front section 10 by lines of stitching 31 or otherwise, and the opposite longitudinal edges of these straps are connected to the back section '19 by a suitable line of stitching 32 or otherwise.

In a similar manner on the right hand side of the garment I employ an elastic tension strap 33 extending circumferentially in the upper portion of the garment with the top ploy diagonally placed elastic tension straps 37 and 38 connected at their adjacent edges along the line of stitching 39, two of these straps being employed to correspond with the corresponding number of straps as hereinbefore described in the other side of the garment, it being understood, however, that preferably the same number of these diagonally'placed elastic tension straps'are employed in corresponding positions in the opposite sides of the garment irrespective of the number of these straps which may be used. The corresponding edges of the straps 33,35, 37 and 38 are connected by suitable lines of stitching 40, or otherwise, to the back member 20, and the opposite edges of these straps are connected by suitable lines of stitchingetl, or otherwise, to the front section -11.

In carryin out the invention I may also employ suita 1e hose supporters 42 and 43, for example, which are suitably connected to and depend from the lower front edges of the front sections, and hose supporters 44 and 45 which are connected to and depend from the forward edges of the back members 19 and 20.

From the foregoing description it will now be understood that the upper elastic tension straps 24 and 33 exert a yielding tension circumferentially of the garment to keep the upper portion thereof in place at substantially the waist-line of the wearer; that-the lower elastic tension straps 26 and 35 exert a similar tension to malntain the lower portions of the garment in position around the thighs of the-wearer, and that the intermediate inclined elastic tension straps 28 and 29 on one side of the garment, 37 and 38 on the other side of the garment exert an upward pull in the back sections of the garment and being directed centrally at the high point of the buttocks tend to produce a fiat efiect therein, while the resultant tensions caused by the circumferentially disposed tension straps and the inclined straps cause the front as well as the back sections of the garment to lie smoothly on the body of the wearer.

I claim as my invention:

1. In an apparel corset and in each forward side portion therwf, an elastic strap at the upper portion of the garment for exerting a circumferential tension, an elastic strap at the lower portion of the garment for exerting a circumferential tension and an upwardly inclined elastic strap intermediate of the aforesaid elastic straps and with the same comprising a substantially continuous section from the upper to the lower edges of the garment,the said inclined elastic strap exerting an'upward tension in the lower back section of the garment to cause the same to conform to the buttocks of the wearer.

2. In an apparel corset and at the forward side portions thereof, a tension strap at the upper edge of the garment for exerting a circumferential tension therein, a tension strap at the lower edge of the arment for exerting a circumferential tension therein, and straps inclined in one direction only for producing an upward tension in the lower back section of the garment to cause the same to conform to the buttocks of the wearer, the said tension straps extending from the upper to the lower ed es of the garment, with the upper portion 0 the inclined strap overlapping a portion of the upper circu1nferentlal strap and the lower portion of the inclined stra overlying a portion of the lower circumferential strap.

3. In an apparel corset, front sections, means for connecting the front sections, a closed back section, the lower portion of which is adapted to extend over the buttocks of the wearer, and a plurality of tension straps connecting the front and back sections at the forward side portions thereof, the said tension straps formlng a continuous section in the garment and at the top of the garment and also at the bottom of the garment to exert a circumferential tension between the front and back sections and in an intermediate position to exert an upwardly inclined tension in the lower back section of the garment to cause the same to conform to the buttocks of the wearer. i

4. In an apparel corset, front sections, means for connecting the front sections, a back section, and a plurality of tension straps extending from the upper to the lower edges of the said corset in both forward side portions thereof in each of which there is an upper tension strap extending between the upper portion of the front members and Q the back member and atits upper edge completing the continuity of theupper edge of the garment, a tension strap in the lower portion of the garment extending between the front sections and the back section with its lower ed completing the continuity of the lower e ge of the garment, and intermediate tension straps extending in an inclined position between the front sections and the back section for exerting an upwardly inclined tension in the intermediate portions ofthe back section, a part of the upper portion of the inclined tension strap overlying a portion of the upper circumferential ten.- sion strap and a lower part of the inclined tension stra overlying a part of the upper portion of the lower circumferential tension strap.
