Description

Dec. 1111, @324. 1... F. PALKENS 1383,636 1 COMBINED ELASTIC B ELT AND SUSPENDERS Filed July 9, 1932 Patented Dec. 11, 1934 UNEE CONEBINED ELASTIC BELT AND SUSPENDERS 2 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in belts and pertains particularly to a combined reducin belt and clothing suspending means.

The primary object of the present invention is to provide an elastic belt designed primarily for use by stout persons desiring to reduce the waist girth and having a suspending means associated therewith which serves to retain the belt in proper position.

Another object of the invention is to provide an elastic reducing belt having a suspension means connected therewith which also serves as a means for supporting a garment such for example as trousers.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a combined elastic reducing belt and garment supporting means, which will be comfortable to the wearer and which will not interfere in any way with the wearing of other articles of clothing.

The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, with the understanding, however, that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawing but may be changed or modified so long as such changes or modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.

In the drawing:-

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of the belt embodying the present invention showing the same in use;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the belt per se, viewing the same from the front and showing the manner in which the shoulder supporting straps are joined thereto at the back.

Referring now more particularly to the drawing wherein like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views, it will be seen that the belt embodying the present invention and which is indicated as a Whole by the numeral 1, is of substantial width. This belt is designed to encircle the body at the waist and is made of elastic web material of the character commonly employed for elastic garments of this character. The belt is preferably formed of a single strip of the elastic material and it is formed by bringing the two end portions 2 thereof into edge opposed relation and connecting them by the inner and outer vertical tapes 3 and 4.

By using the two tapes for connecting the edges 2 of the belt this portion of the belt is materially reinforced or stiffened as the tapes 3 and 4. are of STATES Aren't OFFlCE relatively heavy and non-elastic fabric and, therefore, the necessary buckling and the use ments such as bone or transverse stiffening is imparted to the belt to prevent its wrinkling or of the usual stiffening elesteel is avoided.

Connected to the outer side of the belt at the numerals 6 and as shown rear, which is at a point diametrically opposite the tapes 3 and 4, are the of which straps is in These ends of the str ends of a pair of straps each dicated by the numeral 5. aps 5 are indicated by the they are stitched at '7 to the outer face of the belt and in side by side relation. The straps are arranged in crossed rehas its other end stitched as at 8, to the front of the belt at one side of the center thereof which is defined by the connected edges 2. While the distance between the connected points where the edges of the belt and the front ends of the straps 5 are connected thereto may be varied as desired, it is approximately five the front ends be spaced edges of the belt. It has been found that by connecting the straps at these the central front part erly located to pass between tails of the shirt of a wearer so ends of the straps may of the wearer in the manner at opposite sides of the front opening, the

tons 11.

points with respect to belt, they are propthe front and back that the front be attached to the trousers hereinafter deof the where the belt is shown the trousers 10 of the 0 the inner surface thereof but- These buttons are spaced from the front opening of the trousers a distance equal to the spacing of the front ends of the straps 5 from the connected ends 2 of the belt.

The front ends of the straps 5 have secured thereto the closed eye hooks 12 which depend therefrom and which buttons 11 when the b are adapted to engage the elt is in use.

It will be noted that the hooks 12 are located above the lower edge of the belt so that when the belt is in use and the hooks engaged with the buttons 11 the buttons will be prevented from pressing directly against the side of the wearer of the belt by the body of the belt itself. It will also be apparent that by providing the belt not only is means trousers or other gar straps for the afforded for supporting the ment but the belt will be prevented from slipping down into an uncomfortable position.

From the foregoing it will be readily apparent that a device of the character herein disclosed constitutes an efiicient means for reducing the waist line and also provides means for supporting a garment therefrom.

Having thus described the invention, What is claimed is:-

1. A device of the character described, comprising a relatively broad elastic band designed to encircle the Waist and constituting a reducing belt, a pair of shoulder straps each connected at one end in relatively close relation at the back of the belt and extending in crossed relation to the front of the belt and having their front ends relatively widely spaced apart and connected to the outer face of the belt at a point substantially midway between the top and bottom edges thereof, and means at the front ends of the shoulder straps for connecting the same with the garment.

2. A device of the character described, comprising a relatively broad elastic band designed to encircle the waist and constituting a reducing belt, a pair of shoulder straps each connected at one end in relatively close relation at the back of the belt and extending in crossed relation to the front of the belt and having their front ends relatively widely spaced apart and connected to the outer face of the belt at a point substantially midway between the top and bottom edges thereof, means at the front ends of the shoulder straps for connecting the same with the belt, said belt being formed of a band of material having the ends brought into end opposed relation substantially midway between the front ends of said straps and yieldable reinforcing elements extending transversely of the inner and outer faces of the belt for the full width of the latter and having said opposed ends therebetween and secured thereto, said reinforcing elements being relatively narrow and positioning over the abdomen when the belt is in use.
