Applicatign filed June 2, 1925/ Serial No. 34,300.
The invention relates to brassieres and has for its object to provide a new and improved garment' of this type capable of i being adjusted to 7 support and mold the busts of a woman in a variety of different ways. The invention further contemplates the provision of a brassiere constructed in a novel manner and to permit the busts to be accentuated with particlular respect In to the points thereof. Other more specific objects will appear from the descriptioned, when worn, to encircle v the body of the wearer only in the region of the busts and arranged to support the latter in scientifically and physically correct positions and in some cases to accentuate the natural forms of the busts with particular reference to the points thereof; the garment is adjustable to exert corrective actions upon the busts and to mold the same in various waysin accordance with prevailing styles $5 or in consonance with predetermined requirements dependent upon social functions and the like, or in harmony with the personal whims of the wearer.
In its illustrated form the brassiere comprises an outer section 10 of relatively soft fabric or otherequally pliable material caable of easily conforming itself to the orm'of the busts and adapted, as the garment is adjusted in the manner to be more 4 5 fully set forth, to shape and positions or moldthe busts in a predetermined manner. -The section 10 is cut in accordance with a selected pattern of predetermined form and in the illustrated example converges from a central portion 11 towards its opposite ends to form tabs 6 which asshown, may be relatively narrow and are provided at their free ends with suitable fastening devices such as hooks 11 and eyes 12 whereby the garment is detachably fastenedabout the body of the wearer. In the preferred arrangement the upper edge of the tabs b of the garment comprise curved lines a termlnating at the outer ends of said tabs although this is not essential as other arrangements may be substituted with equivalent satisfactory and efficient results. The outer section .,10 is hemmed along its edges or taped asindicated at 13 and at its opposite 9 ends may be provided with conventional strengthening tapes 14 to which the fastening devices 11 and 12 are attached in any well known way.
An inner section 15 of fabric or material similar to that of the outer section 10 is located upon the inside thereof and pref-V erably terminates along transverse lines d at-intermediate points of the tabs b, al-
though if desired said inner section 15 may extend outwardl beyond said lines d. The lower edge of t e inner section15' is connected throughout its length with the outer section 10 I referably b being fastened beneath the ape 13 as s own. in Fig. 2 and the opposite ends of said inner section 15 are sewed to the outer section 10 by stitching 16. The upper edge of the section 15, for a distance inwardly from itsopposite ends is cut along lines corresponding 'to the lines 0 and is fastened in place beneath the tape 13 at opposite sides of the garment from the points e and f. From the points f the upper edge of the section 15 maybe out along straight lines 9 which are'disconnected from the section 10 and then along downwardly curved or equivalent lines h. which terminate at the opposite ends of a'straight line a constitutmg the upper edge of the intermediate portion of the section 15; the-curved edges h or. their equivalent are free and disconnected. from the outer section 10, while the intermediate portion of the section 15 is fastened to the outer section for instance by three vertical rows of stitching 17 spaced apart and extending throughout the transverse width of the arment as shown in Fig. 2'. Itwill be un erstood'that the inner section 15, between its points of coiinection with the outer section 10, is free" and disconnected therefrom, so that said inner sec! tion 15 'forms two bust supporting and receiving pouches 18 which are of a proximately half-round form and upwar y open as shown in Fig. 2. Preferably the pouches Ill) 'hand extend from the points at which the edges 7:. meet the edges 9 to the same points at which the outer ends of the bands 20 are fastened in the garment. WVith this arrangement each pair of bands 20 and 21 diverge from a common point to spaced points at opposite sides of each pouch 18 and thereby suspend said pouches from the outer section 10 as shown in Fig. 2.
In the preferred form the bands 20 and 21 are constructed of elastic material so as to yieldingly "suspend the pouches 18, and may be made adjustable as to length by means of conventional devices 22, so that the position of thepouches l8 and their characteristics may be selectively adjusted at will.
c For the purpose of suspending the 'garment from the shoulders of the wearer suitable shoulder straps 23 may be provided which may also be adjustable as to length by means of any well known type of devices 24.
To still further increase the range of adjustability of the brassiere it is preferred to provide means therein whereby the garment may be adjustably gathered in .vertical direction along a median line between the pouches 18. In the illustrated example this result is attained by providing a strip of material 25 along the aforesaid median line andsecuring the same in place in the garment.
by means of the three rows of stitching 17 as shown in Fig.2; with this arrangement two parallel pockets are formed between the rows of stitching 17 in the garment in which tapes 26 or their equivalent are located in sucha manner that upon proper manipula tion of said tapes 26 the garment may be adjustably gathered in the desired manner. To facilitate this operation the tapes 26 pass out of saidpockets throu h slits' 27 in the strip 25 so-as'to be readily accessible as shown in Fig.2.
When the garment is fastened in place upon the wearer 'th'e' busts k are received in the pouches 18 as indicated in Fig. 2 and supportedthereby-through the medium of the bands 20and-21 i which lie over the busts from-:opposite direction so" that the latter aremoulded' and held: in a'natural, firm position: Byz proper ad'ustment of .the' tapes srthe adjustably athered at its central portion to accentuate e shape of the busts and particularly the points may be desired. For instance at the present time the style tendency is to point the busts, which effect may be easily secured to any predetermined extent in a simple manner with the instant garment. The adjustment of the busts, with the aid of the brassiere herein .described, may be made in accordance withthe whim of the woman, with the prevailing style, with the type of the outer garment or with the requirements of any given function in which the wearer intends to take part. By properly adjusting the tapes 26 the busts may be rounded to any desired degree or they may be flattened or the busts may be adjusted to any intermediate form or shape. Frequently the busts are uneven and the brassiere may be adjusted to even the same, this being accomplished by a proper manipulation of the tapes 26.
In many cases the busts of a woman, after, child birth, loose their firmness and many women never have firm busts. These conditions may be corrected with the aid of the novel brassiere herein described, said garment, by proper adjustment serving to mold and shape the busts to perfect form, which from a medical standpoint is most de the busts conductive to maximum comfort and other advantages. The brassiere may be made in a variety of styles and decorated and embellished to any extent without interfering with its efliciency.
' Various changes in the form shown and described may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.
I claim:
1. A brassiere adapted to encircle the body of the wearer in the bust region, comprising an outer section of pliable material, fastening means for securing the same in place, adjust-ing means located-at the front along the vertical medial line of said brassiere for adjustably gathering the-same in vertical directions, bust supporting pouches having permanent pouch form, located upon the inside of said outer sectionand extending in opposite directions from said adjusting means, said pouches opening upwardly for receiving the busts and being subject to adjustment by said means, and supporting devices extending from the pouches to said outer section for suspending said pouches therefrom without interfering with the aforesaid adjustment thereof.
