3 Claims. (01. 2-42) This invention relates to brassieres, and has more particular reference to a garment of this kind having novel elastic means to keep the shape of the upper portion of the body in proper form.
An object of the invention is to provide a brassiere having a novel form and arrangement of elastic sections for exerting an even pull on the diaphragm and thereby keeping the upper portion of the body in a slim and trim condition.
Another object of the invention is to provide a brassiere with a belt on the inside of the lower part of its front portion, said belt including elastic sections for exerting a pull on the diaphragm and thereby controlling the latter without discomfort to the wearer.
The exact nature of the present invention, as well as more specific objects and features thereof, will become apparent from the following description when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 is an inside elevational view of a Vertically wide type of brassiere constructed in accordance with the present invention, the brassiere being shown extended.
Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1 looking at the outside of the brassiere.
Figure 3 is a vertical section of the brassiere shown in Figures 1 and 2 as it appears on the body of a wearer, and taken on the plane of line 33 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary horizontal section taken on line i l of Figure 2.
Figure 5 is a'view similar to Figure 2 of a vertically narrow type of brassiere embodying the present invention,
Figure 6 is a View similar to Figure 1, of the brassiere shown in Figure 5.
Figure '7 is a sectional view similar to Figure. 3 of the brassiere shown in Figure 5 and taken on the plane of line l--'i of the latter figure, and
Figure 8 is a horizontal fragmentary section taken on line 3-8 of Figure 6.
Referring in detail to the drawings, the present brassiere comprises a horizontally elongated body which includes a front portion 5 having an upper part composed of a pair of breast pockets 6 and a lower part composed of a central inelastic section 7 and elastic end sections 8 and 9 that are extensible only longitudinally of the garment. The body further includes inelastic end portions It adapted to be detachably united at the rear of the wearer by means of hooks H on the free end of one portion it] which are selectively engageable with the desired one of a plurality of rows of eyelets 12 on the free end of the other portion 1:9. The breast pockets may be formed of any suitable material and provided with suitable darts ht which give. the desired shape to said pockets.
The centralsection i and. the end sections 8 and e have. downwardly converging. adjacent side edges which are reinforced and stitched together as at. 5. Reczesses 16 are formed in adjacent portions of the upper edge of each of the end portions 0 and the side edge of the adjacent pocket 6 te fit the arm pit. The front portion 5 and the end portions: f0 have downwardly con-- verging adjacent edges extending from the recesses t6- tothe bottom edge of the body, which edges are reinforced and stitched together as: at IT. A pair of shoulder straps H! are provided, each of which is connected at one end to the top of a breast pocket atone side of a recess I6 and at the other end to the top of one of the end portions we at the other side of said recess.
Attached to the inside of the lower part of the front portion 5 is a diaphragm-controlling belt I9 composed of a central inelastic section 20' and elastic end sections 2| and 22 thatare extensible only longitudinally of the garment. The cen tral section 21! and the end sections 21 and 22 have downwardiy converging adjacent side edges stitched together-at 23, and the outer side edges of sections 2i and 22 are stitched to the lower portions of the inner edges of the end portions it as at it. As indicated at 25 and 25, the central section 20 is stitched at the top and bottom thereof to the top and bottom of the section T,
- but is otherwise free of the latter. Also,v the sections" 2t and 22 are preferably narrower, vertically, than the sections 8 and 9', as shown.
In the embodiment of Figures 1 to 4 inclusive, the end portions H! are shown as provided with central elastic gussets or inserts 21 in their lower edges, which. inserts or gussets are extensible only longitudinally of the garment. In addition, a further elastic insert 28 is provided centrally of and in the lower edge of the upper part composed of the pockets 6, said insert 28 being of a length to extend the inner halves of both pockets and being only extensible longitudinally of the garment. This insert 28 provides a desirable yielding support for breasts of larger size. Also, in this embodiment, the shoulder straps l8 comprise integral extensions of the pockets 6 and end portions [0 connected by an elastic strip of webbing 29. Elastic breast supporting straps 30 may be provided within the breast pockets 6 in this 3 embodiment, which straps extend across the lower portions of the breast pockets so as to pass under the breasts and yieldingly support the same in lifted position.
With the narrow type of brassire shown in Figures 5 to 8 inclusive, the inserts 21 and 28 are not necessary, and the breast supporting straps 30 may also be omitted when breast pockets of smaller size are provided as shown. The shoulder straps in this embodiment may be of any preferred type, but are shown in the form of tapes secured at 3| to the end portions [0 and extended through buckles 32 attached to the breast pockets 6, whereby the shoulder straps are adjustable as to effective length. Similar elements and features of both embodiments are indicated by like reference characters.
The garment made as described, will be comfortable to wear and will snugly embrace and control the diaphragm or the region between the abdomen and the breasts to keep the figure neat and trim without undue strain on the diaphragm. A most desirable controlling action on the diaphragm is had, due to the converging relation of the spaced body sections 8 and 9 and belt sections 2| and 22 at the front of the garment and directly beneath the breasts. Longitudinal yielding of the elastic sections 8, 9, 2| and 22 insures comfort to the wearer but constant snu fitting of the garment about the diaphragm, the belt exerting an even pull on the diaphragm to keep the same neat and trim without discomfort to the wearer. The attachment of the centralsection 20 of the belt to the central section I of the lower part of the front portion prevents sagging of the belt and keeps the same in proper form and position.
From the foregoing description, it is believed that the construction and advantages of the present invention will be readily understood and appreciated by those skilled in the art. Minor changes and modifications are contemplated such as fall within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
What I claim is:
1. A brassire comprising an elongated body having cooperating fastening devices for separably connecting the ends thereof at the rear of the wearer, said body comprising an intermediate front portion having upwardly diverging side edges and substantially similar inelastic end portions having inclined inner side edges permanently connected directly to the upwardly diverging side edges of said front portion, said front portion having an upper part composed of a pair of breast pockets joined together along a central seam and a lower part forming an under-breast band and permanently connected at its upper edge directly to the lower edges of the breast pockets, said lower part being composed of a central inelastic section having upwardly diverging side edges and horizontally yieldable elastic end sections having inclined inner side edges permanently connected directly to the upwardly diverging side edges of said central section, the outer side edges of the breast pockets and of the elastic end sections being inclined and directly joined to the inclined inner side edges of the end portions of the body.
2. A brassiere comprising an elongated body having cooperating fastening devices for separably connecting the ends thereof at the rear of the wearer, said body comprising an intermediate front portion having upwardly diverging side edges and substantially similar inelastic end portions having inclined inner side edges permanently connected directly to the upwardly diverging side edges of said front portion, said front portion having an upper part composed of a pair of breast pockets joined together along a central seam and a lower part forming an underbreast band and permanently connected at its upper edge directly to the lower edges of the breast pockets, said lower part being composed of a central inelastic section having upwardly diverging side edges and horizontally yieldable elastic end sections having inclined inner side edges permanently connected directly to the upwardly diverging side edges of said central section, the outer side edges of the breast pockets and of the elastic end sections being inclined and directly joined to the inclined inner side edges of the end portions of the body, and a horizontally elongated and horizontally yieldable elastic insert set in the intermediate portion of the lower edge of said upper part and joined at its lower edge to the upper edge of said inelastic section of the lower part.
3. The construction defined in claim 1, in combination with a diaphragm-controlling belt on the inside of and substantially corresponding in form and construction to said lower part of the front portion, said belt being composed of a central inelastic section having upwardly diverging side edges and horizontally yieldable elastic end sections having inclined inner side edges permanently connected directly to the upwardly diverging side edges of said central belt section, the outer side edges of the elastic end belt sections being inclined and joined directly to the inclined inner side edges of the end portions of the body.
