1 Claim.
This invention relates in general to new and useful improvements in garment supporters and more specifically to maternity garment supporters constructed to support wearing apparel, such as hose, without discomfort to a prospective mother.
The primary object of the invention is the provision of an improved maternity garment supporter which, in addition to properly supporting wearing apparel effects a gentle steadying pressure on the back of a wearer and comforts against strain during confinement.
Such a general object of the invention is attained by a garment supporter embodying looped portions to be carried by the shoulders of a wearer and an elastic back supporting shield member of substantially trapezoidal shape adapted to yieldingly contact and gently press against the wearers back when the attaching means of the garment supporter are secured to the wearing apparel.
Another object of the invention therefore is the provision of an improved maternity garment supporter embodying looped shoulder portions for the shoulders of a wearer and yielding, substantially trapezoidally shaped back shield means connecting the looped shoulder portions and positioned to contact the lower back portion.
A further object of the invention is the provision of an improved maternity garment supporter embodying looped shoulder portions for the shoulders of a wearer and a yielding, substantially trapezoidally shaped reenforced back shield member reenforced by a pretensioned reenforcing means and positioned to connect the looped shoulder portions while contacting and yieldingly supporting the area around the twelfth thoracic vertebra of the spinal column of the wearer.
In addition, the invention has certain other marked superiorities which radically distinguish it from presently known structures. These improvements or superiorities embodying certain novel features of construction are clearly set forth in the following specication and the appended claim; and a preferred form of embodiment of the invention is hereinafter shown with reference to the accompanying drawing forming part of the specication.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a side perspective View of the maternity garment supporter shown applied to a female figure;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged rear perspective view of the maternity garment supporter;
Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 2; and
Fig. 4 is an edge view of the parts of the reenforced back shield member prior to their assembly.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, the maternity garment supporter shown therein embodies two elastic, looped shoulder strips 2 and 3 which have their rear portions 4 and 5 attached to the upper part 6 of an elastic shield member 1 shaped to substantially trapezoidal outline. Shoulder strips 2 and 3 have the ends of their front portions 8 and 9 attached to V-shaped connecting members I0 and Il which by arms I2 and I4 are secured to the lower corner portions I5 and I6 of elastic shield member 'I' and have attached to their vertex portions I'I and I8 pairs of elastic garment attaching members I9 and 20 provided with garment attaching means 2| of customary construction.
Elastic trapezoidally shaped shield member 'I of the maternity garment supporter which functions as back support for the wearer is made of rubberized heavy material, has at its top portion a marginal, non-elastic area 22 preventing spreading of such top portion and is substantially wider at its bottom portion than at its top portion, all for the epurpose of effecting gentle, steadying pressure on the back of a wearer. The shield member is positioned so as to contact the area opposite the twelfth thoracic vertebra of the spinal column of the wearer and is preferably reenforced by one or more stays 23 of whalebone or other suitable material covered by a lining 24 sewed to the body of member 'I at 25. The stay or stays 23 are preferably precurved in a direction opposite to their curvature when shield member I contacts the back of the wearer, an arrangement which pretensions the stay or Stays and increases the supporting and steadying eiect of the shield member.
Having thus described my invention what I claim is:
A maternity garment supporter embodying elastic shoulder straps, an elastic back supporting shield member of heavy, rubberized material including a non-elastic top portion, said shield member having trapezoidal outline, the nonelastic top portion being substantially narrower than the bottom edge of the elastic portion and having the non-elastic top portion connected to the rear ends of said straps, yielding garment supporting means, and a pair of V-shaped connecting means, each of said connecting means having its vertex secured to the respective garment supporting means and its diverging arms attached to the front end of a shoulder strap and a bottom corner of the bottom edge of said elastic shield member.
PAULINE E. ROSENBLATT.
