No claim is made for this fastener apart from its use in connection with this bathing suit consequently it is not shown and described incomplete detail, it being understood that its purpose is to detachably latch and hold the adjacent edges of the portions 13 and 14 and 17 and 18 together when the garment is in use, and completely separable when the garment is to be removed.

The bathing suit is provided with an inner crotch cover 22 which can be sewed into the garment as best shown in Figure 4; or if desired, this inner cover 22 can be formed and worn separately as fragmentally indicated in Figures 5 and 6.

As seen therein the adjacent edges 23 and 24 that extend centrally and vertically over a persons hips and sides are provided with the hooks 25 and eyelets 26 so they can be easily and quickly secured to hold the cover in place, and preferably there are a plurality of the sets of eyelets 26 so the waist portion-of the cover can be properly adjusted around the wearers waist. The inner crotch cover is narrower at the crotch than the outer crotch cover; and its ends are extended sidewise to the full width of the suit; and has the ends and side edges secured by sewing to -the waist of the bathing suit. These extended ends are arranged to completely encircle a persons body at the waist line to reinforce the suit and also to aid in supporting the weight of the inner crotch cover when wet.

The top portion 27 of the waist is formed of elastic materialand is also provided with belt straps 28 so a person can weara belt if so desired.

AlsoI provide a buttoned pocket 29 in the front of the garment in which valuables such as rings can be placed for safe keeping while bathing.

I also provide a. false slit 30 down the front portion of the garment to enhance its appearance.

In use the bathing suit is inserted under a persons usual clothing and between the legs with the front and back portions thereof brought up and secured around the body as described.

The outer crotch cover 12 is preferably reinforced with an elliptical `shaped patch 112 that has its pointed end portions 212 extended upward some distance over the front and back parts 10 and 11. Also this outer crotch cover is slightly wider than the narrowest portion of the inner crotch cover 22, and its opposite semi-elliptical edges are reinforced with hems 312, and curved so they fit snugly around the upper portions of a wearers thighs. The inner crotch cover is arranged to hold the privates up in close contact with the body to avoid unsightly Vprotrusions.

Preferably the inner crotch cover has its end portions the same width as the parts' 10 and 11 and extended up to the elastic portions 27; and are secured at their ends to the portions 10 and 11 by stitches 31, so the center portion of the inner cover can swing or move independently of the body portion of the suit and outer crotch cover.

The edges of the crotch cover are preferably hemmed and curved in toward a center point X as best shown in Figures 4 ard 5.

It is obvious that the bathing suit can be removed while clothed by a reversal of the -foregoing described actions in placing the suit in use.

What I claim is:-

1. A bathing suit that has its upper end terminating at the waist in a two-piece elastic band, said suit being so constructed that it can be placed on and removed while the wearer is fully clothed, and including a front body portion secured to one ofsaid elastic bands and adapted to extend half way around the lower part of the wearers body and hips, a back body portion, that is of substantially the same width, length and form as the front portion secured to the second elastic band and adapted to extend around the other half portion of the wearers body and hips, detachable metal fasteners for connecting the adjacent side edges of said suit into a closed metal seam, an outer crotch cover integral with the lower parts of said front and back portions of said suit, and an inner crotch cover having a narrow center portion and having ends of substantially the same width as the lower edges of said elastic half-bands and joined edge to edge therewith so that the narrow center portion of said inner crotch cover is held centrally above said outer crotch'cover substantially as described.

2. A bathing suit that has its upper end teiminating -at the waist in a two-piece elastic band, said suit being so constructed that it can be placed on and removed while the wearer is fullyclothed, and including a front body portion secured to one of said elastic bands and adapted to extend half way around the lower part of a wearers body and hips, a back body portion, that is of substantially the same length, width and form as the front portion secured to the second elastic band and adapted to extend around the other half of the wearers body, detachable metal latching fasteners for joining the adjacent edges of the suit, edge to edge, in a metal seam, an outer crotch cover integral with the front and back portions of said suit, an elliptical reinforcing strip secured centrally and on the outside of said outer crotch cover, an inner crotch cover narrower than said outer cover and havingend portions of the same width as the upper edge of said front and rear body portions of said suit and secured thereto so that its center portion is free to move independently of the body portion of the suit and outer crotch cover thereof.
