EDWARD A. PHILLIPS, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.

BA'IYHING sum.

Application filed August 12, 1924. Serial No. 731,594.

My invention relates to the class of knit ted bathing suits in which the trousers are secured to the inner part of a shirt or body portion, the latter being sufficiently long to tion of the rear top of the inserted gusset due to the disproportionate stretch at this part of the garment during stooping and sitting positions of the wearer. The other of said unsatisfactory conditions is the uncomfortable feeling of the garment where the trousers are joined to the inner part of the shirt. This latter condition is due to the fact that two.distinct garments are secured together adjacent the waistline and the strains on the gusset of the trousers cause a .pull on the transverse seam at the top of the rear of the gusset and across the seat of the wearer. only cause an uncomfortable feeling to the wearer but also causes the breaking away of the gusset as previously mentioned. F ur- 30 thermore, great strain is imposed upon the rear of the trousers, between the to of the trousers and shirt. V v

One object'of my invention is to provide a bathing suit of the above 'mentionedclass in such manner as to eliminate said disadvantageous conditions. t

Another object is to so construct my 1mproved bathing suit that it will be neat and pleasing in appearance.

These objects, and other advantageous ends hereinafter set forth. I attain inthe following manner, reference being had to the accompanying drawing in whlch Figure 1 is an elevational view of the.

front of a bathing suit made in accordance with my invention,

Figure 2 is a, rear view of said suit with] the bottom or skirt portion of the shirt turned upto show the entire back. of the trousers and the line of junction of the trousers with the shirt, 5

Figure 3 i'sa fragmentary elevat1on of similar character to Figure 2 but showing the front of the trousers, and

This action does not of therear of the gusset and the line of unction and trousers, said seam 21 also joining the the yiel Figure 4 is an inner view, in a flattened condition, showing a portion of my im-- proved bathing suit.

Referring to the drawing in improved bathing suit includes a body or s irt portion 5 and trousers 6.

o The trousers have legs 7 and 8 and an inserted gusset 9. The gusset 9 has a wide edge 10 which is seamed at 11 to the front of the trousers between the legs slightly above the lower portion 12 of the crotch part of the garment. The legs are seamed together at the frontas shown at 13 in Figures 3 and 4. i

The gusset 9 tapers from the edge 10 to i an opposite edge 14. The edge 14 forms an insert in the girth of the top edge 15 of the trousers to fill the gap caused by the separation of the edges 16 and 17 of the trousers as clearly shown in Figures 2 and 4-; the side edges 18 and 19 of the gusset 9 being respectively seamed'to the said edges 16 and 17.

The gusset 9 is preferably doubled from the seam 11' part way up the back as shown at 9 in Figure 4, and the top edge 20 of said doubled portion is free or, i n other words, is preferably not stitched or secured to any other part of the suit.

Y The top edge 15 of the trousers is stitched to the inner part of the body portion 5 by a seam 21 which is flexible to allow stretchlng in the girth ordiameter of both the body edge 14 to said body portion. Thus it will berseen that thegusset will take strains from the crotch t0 the line of junction of the trousers with the body portion and laterally between said elevatlons, there being no transverse seams between the crotch and junction line to bind the wearer or cause breaking at the seat. Furthermorea yieldable junction is provided between the trousers and body portion which-allows lateral strains on the gusset to be distributed throughout the entire height of the gusset and at the part of able junction seam which joins the edge 14 to the body ortion 5. In addition,

the free edge 20 a1 ows free stretching ofshown in Figures 2 and 3. This added fullness allows 'sufiicient take-up material to the wearer and allows'freedoni of movement at the crotch portion.

Having thus described my invention what 5 I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A knitted bathing suit including a shirt portion and trousers joined to the shirt portion adjacent the waist line, said trousers 10 having a gusset extending from the, crotch up the back and being included in the line of junction of the trousers with the shirt portion, said gussetbeing doubled from the crotch part Way of the height of said gusset, the top edge of the doubled portion of said gusset being free of other portions of the suit.

In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification,

EDWARD A. PHILLIPS.
