6 Claim.
This invention relates to bandeaux, brassieres or the like, one ofthe objects being to provide a garment of this type the bust sections or cups of which are self-adjusting.
Heretofore it has been the practice to make these garments to fit predetermined chest measurements but the bust sections or cups have been made to a standard depending upon the waist or chest measurements and while a person might o procure a bandeau or brassiere of the proper I comeself-adjusting to sizes which ordinarily would not be obtained in connection with the standard chest orwaist measurement of the purchased garment.
It is a further object to provide bust sections or cups the seams of which are stretchable transversely, thereby relieving the material from objectionable strains atthese points as well as uncomfortable and unsightly g.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as 'thedescripti'on proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter more fully described and pointed out in the claims, it being understood that changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed. i 1 y In the accompanying drawing the preferred form of the invention has been shown. I
In said drawing:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of a bandeau or brassiere embodying the present improvements.
Figure 2 is a front elevation of a portionthereof showing one of the sections or cups stretched at the seams.
Referring to the figures by characters of reference, I designates a band of any suitable material adapted to encircle and to be secured about the body andcarrying bust sections or cups 2.
' In the present instance these sections are joined to the band I by an inserted tape a of elastic the structure illustrated the three segments are joined together by inserted strips of tape 1 formed of elastic material stretchable transversely but not in 'thedirection of their length and the inserted tapes extend from the center of each section 2 to the margin thereof. It is preferred to have one section extend upwardly from the center while the remaining sections diverge downwardly to the tape 3., The materials used in the formation of the segments 4, 5 and E are preferably non-stretchable. Crossed tapes 8 of elastic stretchable longitudinally can be interposed between and connected to'the sections or cups 2 above the band I and the usual shoulder straps 9 are extended from the tops of the sections or cups 2 to the end portions of the band i.
It is to be understood that the garment described is' to be made of standard sizes as ordinarily. However should it be necessary, in order to prevent wrinkles and to adord a proper lit, to have sections or cups 2* larger than a standard size, it will be apparent that the elastic tapes 3 and I will stretch readily transversely, as has been shown in Figure 2 so that the sections will thus adapt themselves to the wearer Iand adord a proper fit.
Obviously this construction will also relieve the material of strains at the seams to which it would be subjected should the elastic inserts not be employed under the conditions stated. Further more the garment would be worn with much more comfort than otherwise would be possible.
While the elastic inserts are preferably formed of elastic. fabric, it is to be understood that any suitable elastic material can be used. It is also to be understood that the positions and shapes of the inserts can be varied to meet the requirements. It is merely essential that the garment be so constructed as to become self-fitting, thereby to eliminate strain upon or objectionable binding by the garment.
What is claimed is:
1. A garment of the class described including a body encircling portion, bust sections or cups joined thereto and each comprising nonstretchable portions and elastic portions, each section or cup being stretchable at the elastic portions transversely of a plurality of lines radiating from a point adjacent to the center of the section or cup.
2. A garment of the class described including a body encircling portion, bust sections joined thereto each comprising non-elastic segments extending about a point adjacent to the center of the section and elastic portions interposed between'and connecting the segments and radiating from said point, each section'being stretchablc at the ela'stic portions transversely of a plurality'ot lines radiating from a point adjacent to g the ccnterotthesection. l
3. A garment of the class described including a body encircling band, bust sections, an elastic connection between the sections, and means for n tions toward and from each other, said means including a strip of transversely stretchable 4 A garment of the class described including lg a body encircling band, separate resiliently connected bust sections thereabove, and a transallowing relative movement of the'band and sec-.
