F. E.- FEJGENBAUM BIAS, SHAPED FOUNDATION GARMENT Filed May 25, 1946 INVENTQR Fr-edemck E. FeIqenbaum Patented Apr. 5, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a bias shaped foundation garment.

The invention particularly proposes to characterize the garment by the fact that it has a main body encircling portion consisting of a broad band extending on the bias from the back around the right hand side to the front, and another broad band extending on'the bias from the back around the left hand side to the front. It is proposed that these broad bands have overlapping portions at the back which are secured together, and also have overlapping portions at the front which are secured together.

The invention contemplates arranging an openable top back section which is set in between the top and back edges of said bands. It is also pro posed to provide a bottom front section set in between the bottom front and rear edges of said bands.

The advantage of the particularly constructed foundation garment resides in the fact that it will be slenderizing to a much greater degree than present day garments. This is so, in that the arrangement of the board bands extending obliquely will have an oblique line of stretch extending from the abdomen rearwards and downwards along the hips to the buttocks.

Still further the invention proposes a design of foundation garment which may be as well applied to girdles, corsets and similar garments.

Another object of the invention is the construction of a garment as mentioned which is simple and durable and which may be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a front perpective view of a bias shaped foundation garment constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a rear perspective view of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the broad bands used in the construction of the garment.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the other broad band used in the garment.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the openable top back section of the garment.

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the bottom front section of the garment.

Fig. 7 is a side elevational view of the garment 2 Claims.

shown applied on a figure to more clearly point out its action.

The bias shaped foundation garment in accordance with this invention includes a main body encircling portion consisting of a broad band II] of elastic material extending on the bias from the back around the right hand side to the front and attached in a certain manner to another broad band I I also of elastic material and extending on the bias from the back around the left hand side to the front. The back ends of the bands II] and II are cut transversely across the band material so that there are lower apex portions w and I I a for the respective bands. These apex portions are superimposed so that the bands overlap at the back. These overlapping portions are secured together by several lines of stitches I2 I 2' and I2. The stitches I2 and I 2 are extended along the sides of the overlapping portions. The stitches I2 are extended vertically along the diagonal.

The bands I0 and II also overlap at the front. They are so arranged that the rear end of the band I0 is on the outside of the overlapping portions at the rear, and on the inside at the front.

' The band I I is just reversed. The back portion is at the back of the band I0, and the front portion is outside of the front portion of the band NJ. The front portion of the band I I extends from one side of the garment at the waist portion, the point I I around the front to the point I I which is a short distance from the other side of the garment. The front portion of the band I0 extends from point I0 at the side of the garment around the front for a short distance to the point lil Several lines of stitches W, I 4* and I l secure together the edge portions of the overlapping front parts of the bands I0 and II.

An openable top back section I5 is set in between the top and back edges of the bands I0 and I I. This section I5 is composed of two ends parts I5 and I 5 which are provided at their adjacent edges with a slide fastener I6. The top edge I5 of the top back section I5 comprises the back section of the waist portion of the garment. The bottom edges I 5 are sewed to the top edges of the adjacent portions of the bands I 0 and. I I. The top back section I 5 is provided with several vertical seams I1 to form its shape so as to make it form fitting.

A bottom front section I8 is set in between the bottom front and rear edges of the bands In and I I. More specifically, the section I8 has a top apex portion I8 which sets into the apex produced by the crossing bottom edges of the bands I0 and II at the front. The section I8 has downwardly in,

clined sides l8 extending downwards from the apex section l8. These sides are attached to the bottom edges to the front portions of the bands l and II. The sides It! continue into sides lB which extend around the rear of the garment and which are attached to the bottom edges of the rear portions of the bands and H. In Fig. 6 the dot and dash lines A represent the vertical sides of the garment. The section l8 has a heavy web portion I8 at its apex.

The bottom front section is is provided with the usual garters 20. The rear portions of the section 18 are provided with the rear garters 20 The garment may be trimmed and finished in the usual way, with lace or other fine materials.

The use of the garment may be understood by examining Fig. 7. It will be noted that the broad bands l0 and II extend from the back obliquely around to the front. These broad bands are of heavy elastic material exerting a slenderizing effect on the body along the line BC and particularly on those portions of the body usually protruding, that is the abdomen and buttocks. The abdomen is pressed inwards and downwards and the buttocks are pressed inwards and upwards.

It should be clearly understood that while a foundation garment has been illustrated, the same construction may be applied to girdles, corsets and other similar garments.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1. A foundation garment, comprising broad bands of elastic material extending in opposite directions from the bottom at the back of the garment upward to the top at the front of the garment, said broad bands having their ends overlapped at the front and back of the garment, stitches securing together the overlapped ends of said broad bands, at top back section set into the back of said garment above the back overlapped ends of said broad bands and having its edges secured to the adjacent top edges of said broad bands, said back section having its top 4 edge flush with the top ends of said broad bands located at the front of said garment, and a bottom front section set into the front of said garment below the front overlapped ends of said broad bands and having its edges secured to the adjacent bottom edges of said broad bands, said front section having its bottom edge flush with the bottom ends of said broad bands located at the back of said garment.

2. A foundation garment, comprising broad bands of elastic material extending in opposite directions from the bottom at the back of the garment upward to the top at the front of the garment, said broad bands having their ends overlapped at the front and back of the garment, stitches securing together the overlapped ends of said broad hands, a top back section set into the back of said garment above the back overlapped ends of said broad bands and having its edges secured to the adjacent top edges of said broad bands, said back section having its top edge flush with the top ends of said broad bands located at the front of said garment, and a bottom front section set into the front of said garment below the front overlapped ends of said broad bands and having its edges secured to the adjacent bottom edges of said broad bands, said front section having its bottom edge flush with the bottom ends of said broad bands located at the back of said garment, said top section being openable from its top edge to its bottom edge midway between its side edges.
