Description

Oct. 18, 1949. H. RABINOWITZ 2,485,313

BRASSIERE Filed May 17, 1947 INVENTOR. HARRY Rmam OWI'I'Z ATTORNEY Patented Oct. 18, 1949 UNITED STATES 'PATENT OFFICE BRAssrcRE This invention relates to a nursing brass'iere and particularly to a construction employing a service covering flap and means for adjusting the pockets to provide accommodation corresponding with the dimensional' changes of the bust of the mother, and oneof the objects of the invention is to provide afiap or cover which when moved to open position will relieve the breast of external pressure during the period of nursing.

Another object of the invention is to provide a design for the flap or cover which will provide a cupped body having the molding seam located to provide auxiliary support for the bust, I

Another object of the invention is to improve the means for adjusting the support given to the bust to insure that the best adjustment will be available at all times and release may be made without confusion.

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 claim in which the novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of the improved nursing brassire.

Fig. 2 is a rear elevation of the brassiere.

Fig. 3 is a detail plan view of one of the covering flaps, showing the molding seam thereof.

Fig. 4 is a detail cross sectional view, taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a detail plan view, enlarged, of one of the supporting strips, showing the adjustment means thereof.

Fig. 6 is a detail longitudinal sectional view, taken on line 6-6 of Fig. 5, looking in the direc-.- tion of the arrows.

Fig. 7 is a detail plan view, enlarged, of the means used for girth adjustment.

Fig. 8 is a detail sectional view, taken on line 8-8 of Fig. 7.

Referring to the drawings, which illustrate the practical embodiment of the invention Ill designates a left wing and II the right wing of a nursing brassire, the two wings being permanently united by a central vertical seam I2.

The wing I0 is formed with a circular bust opening I3, the marginal edge of which is reinforced by a lace binding I4, and the wing II is formed with a circular bust opening I5, the marginal edge of which is reinforced by the lace binding I6. The adjacent portions of these openings have a permanent supporting function and 1 Claim. (01. 2-42) do not expand to cause a displacement of the bust,

or to change the center of feeding.

The wing I0 progressively narrows toward its outer end and is provided with connecting hooks I1, and the wing I I progressively narrows toward its outer end and is furnished with an elastic webbing I8, the outer end of which carries the strip I9, which is furnished with an inner pair of connecting eyes or loops 20 and an outer'pair of connecting eyes or loops 2I, which connect with the hooks IT.

The left wing I0 is provided with a shoulder strap 22, one end 22 of which is secured to the outer end of the wing, and the other end 22 of which is secured to the widened inner part III of the wing which is formed with the bust opening I3.

The right wing II is provided with a shoulder strap 23, one end 23 of which is connected to wing, and by stitching 28, which is parallel to the v central connecting seam I2. The lower edge 26 of the flap 26 and. the upper outer edge 26* thereof are wholly unattached to the wing III, so that the entire flap 26 may be folded toward the hinge joints established by the stitching 21 and 28, inwardly of the breast, from the left to the right side of the body. In this way the bust at the moment of maximum loading will be released for feeding with minimum of restraint, and no central interference.

The flap 26 is cupped to provide comfortable accommodation for the bust organ received by it, and this is done by forming a slit through the lower edge of the flap, and then joining the edges 29 and 30 to each other by a vertical seam 3|, which extends from the lower edge to the center of the cup thus formed. This central seam provides reinforcement for the flap and lies normally under the bust engaged.

The opening I5 is normally closed by means of the flap 32, which is of similar construction to the flap 26, being permanently secured at its upper edge 32 to the upper edge of the wing II, and at 33 to the central seam I2. The outer upper edges 32 and the lower edge 32 are wholly unattached to the wing II. The flap is cupped by a central seam 34, which provides central reinforcement or support for the bust. The flap opens fully to disclose the bust and relieve it of external restraint, by swinging toward the left side of the body.

The outer end of the flap 26 is provided with a hook 35, which is adapted to be coupled to either one of the eyes or connecting loops 38, secured by the strip 3,13totthe wing I The uterend lO of the flap 32-is provided with a hook38, -whichmay be connected to either one of the eyes or loops 39 of the strip 40, secured to the wing IL 4 ferred embodiments of my invention, it is understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed, and the right is hereby reserved to all changes and modifications 5 coming within the scope of the invention, as

defined by the appended claim.

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