  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION dddddddddddddddddddddddddd
  • This invention is directed to an article of clothing. More particularly, this invention is directed to an article of clothing which is a brassiere (bra), having a structure suited for carrying articles such as keys, identification cards, and the like. The terms “brassiere” and “bra” are hereinafter regarded as equivalent terms. The bra of the present invention is denoted generally by the numeric label “100”.
  • Referring to FIG. 1 with regard to which the meaning of the numbers and labels shown in FIG. 1 are described in Table 1. FIG. 1 shows an environmental, perspective view of a bra 100 according to the invention, which is shown being worn by a wearer 120. The bra 100 includes first and second pockets 160 and 180, which enable a wearer 120 to safely carry personal items, such as the illustrated item 140, while enjoying firm support. The bra 100 has an unusual design feature wherein the first and second pockets 160 and 180, and in particular first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220 as described below, also function as bra cups. The first and second pockets 160 and 180 respectively define first and second openings 184 and 186.
  • The bra 100 has an optional snap device 190 for supporting a personal item 140 or for holding a key ring 191 or the like, as shown in FIGS. 10-12. The optional snap 190 includes a body portion 192 having first and second opposite ends 193 a and 193 b. First and second cooperating snap members 194 and 196 are respectively located at first and second opposite ends 193 a and 193 b. The optional snap device 190, and more particularly body portion 192, can be bent back to form a loop shape 197. The optional snap device 190 can be affixed to the bra 100 by any known means such as stitching or use of adhesive glue. One of the cooperating snap members 194 or 196 can be inserted through the first layer 400 at, for example, the side 400 s 2. For example, cooperating snap member 194 can be inserted through first layer 400 at side 400 s 2, wherein snap member 194 is held in place by attaching cooperating snap member 196 to cooperating snap member 194. The optional snap device 190 is shown in FIGS. 10 through 12.
  • Referring generally to the Figures with regard to which the meaning of numbers and labels shown in the Figures are described in Table 1 (see FIGS. 13A, 13B and 13C). The bra defines front 240, rear 260, left 280 and right 300 sides as viewed looking directly at the front side 240. The bra 100 further defines top 320 and bottom 340 ends, and includes first 360 and second 380 shoulder straps. The bra 100 comprises first and second layers 400 and 420. The alpha-numeric labels “400 f” and “400 r” merely refer to the front and rear portions of the first layer 400, i.e., the front and rear portions 400 f and 400 r are integral with and form part of the first layer 400. In FIG. 3 the first 360 and second 380 shoulder straps form part of, and are integral with, the first layer 400. However, the shoulder straps 360 and 380 can be separate components attached to the first layer 400 by any suitable method such as stitching. The first layer defines a top 400 t and bottom 400 b (see FIG. 2) which can coincide with the top 320 and bottom 340 ends of the bra 100. The first layer 400 extends around the bra 100 to form the rear side 260, and the left and right sides 280 and 300 of the bra 100 (see, for example, FIG. 4). The first layer 400 defines an outer-surface 440 and an inner-surface 460; for convenience the outer-surface 440 of the first layer 400 at the front 240 of the bra 100 is designated by the alpha-numeric label “440 f”, and the inner-surface of the first layer at the rear 260 of the bra 100 is designated the alpha-numeric label “460 r”. The second layer 420 is attached to the outer-surface 440 f of the first layer 400 thereby in combination defining the front side 240 of bra 100; see, e.g., FIGS. 3 and 2. The second layer 420 can be attached to the outer surface 440 f by any suitable means such as, but not limited to, stitching. The second layer 420 defines first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220. First and second breast cups 200 and 220 respectively define exterior surfaces 480 and 500 and interior surfaces 520 and 540. The interior surfaces 520 and 540 form part of the outer-surface 440 f of the first layer 400. An optional sewn seam 410 can be applied to separate the first and second pockets 160 and 180, as shown in FIG. 12.
  • When worn the wearer's breasts 120 b and 120 c press up against the first layer 400 and more particularly against the inner-surface 460 f at the front side 400 f of first layer 400. The materials of the front side 400 f of the bra 100 is sufficiently flexible and lose to allow the wearer's breasts to push into the first and second breast cups 200 and 220 albeit separated from the cups 200 and 220 by the front side 400 f of first layer 400 (see FIGS. 6 through 9). The first and second cups 200 and 220 can be any suitable size such as full cup size, three-quarter cup size or half-cup size.
  • It is preferred, but not essential, that the second layer 420 extends across and beyond both wearer's breasts 120 b and 120 c. In one embodiment the second layer 420 lacks optional sewn seam 410 thus allowing the wearer 120 to place lengthy personal items that extend between the first and second pockets 160 and 180.
  • In one embodiment the bra 100 comprises first and second layers 400 and 420, the first layer 400 having front 400 f, rear 400 r, left and right sides 400 s 1 and 400 s 2, top and bottom ends 400 t and 400 b. The bra 100 has top and bottom ends 320 and 340 ends; bottom and top ends 320 and 340 respectively define and coincide with the top 400 t and bottom 400 b ends of the first layer 400. The second layer 420 is attached to the front side 400 f of the first layer 400, the second layer 420 defines first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220. The first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220 are located opposite the front side 400 f. The first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220 in combination with the front side 400 f of the first layer 400 respectively define first and second pockets 160 and 180.
  • The first and second pockets 160 and 180 respectively include first and second openings 184 and 186. The front side 400 f of the first layer 400 being responsive to a wearer's breasts 120 b and 120 c such that a wearer's breasts are accommodated by the first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220. The front side 400 f of the first layer is continuously disposed without interruption across the wearer's breasts 120 b and 120 c and opposite the first and second cup portions 200 and 220. The front side 400 f is sufficiently flexible to allow a wearer's breasts 120 b and 120 c to flow into the first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220 defined by the second layer 420 without coming into direct contact with the first and second cup portions 200 and 220.
  • The first layer 400 is continuously present between both of the wearer's breasts and the first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220. More specifically, the term “continuously present” in the context of the first layer 400 is intended to mean that the front side 400 f forms a layer between both of the wearer's breasts and the first and second cup shaped portions 200 and 220. Put another way, the front side 400 f is sandwiched between the wearer's breasts and said first and second cup portions 200 and 220.
  • Another embodiment the bra is shown in FIGS. 14 through 18 with regard to which the meaning of numbers and labels are found in FIG. 13C, which forms part of Table 1. In this embodiment, a bra 100 a is a two piece bra with a second layer 420 a is stitched inside a first layer 400 a as shown, for example, by the exploded view of FIG. 15. An optional snap device 190 a is shown attached on the inner-surface 460 af of the first layer 400 a as shown, for example, in FIG. 14A. The optional snap device 190 a is typically used to hold one or more keys.
  • The invention being thus described, it will be evident that the same may be varied in many ways by a routineer in the applicable arts. Such variations are not to be regarded as a departure from the spirit and scope of the invention and all such modifications are intended to be included within the scope of the claims.
