V. l. BECKER May 23, 1950 BRASSIEIRE Filed Aug. 27, 1948 Lii- INVENTOR. [fiedfr Patented May 23, 1950 Victor I. Becker, Los Angeles Calif. I Application August 27, 1948, Serial'No. 46,539
This invention relates to a brassire, and more particularly to a construction whereby the bust cups of the brassiere will be capable of adjustably arranging themselves to suit the contour of the busts, while firmly supporting the same.
The invention contemplates the provision of a brassiere in which each of the bust cups is composed of two overlying sections of fabric, said sections being attached together in the lower portions only of their side edges and at the bottom, leaving the top portions of the sections unsecured together. The result of this arrangement is thatv a substantial portion of each bust cup is composed of free overlapping sections or plies which are capable of spreading and expanding relative to one another so that a bust cup so constructed will readily accommodate itself as to shape and size, within substantial limitations, to busts of various contours. The invention also contemplates the provision of suspension means for the several fabric sections which comprise each bust cup, said suspension means including a fabric loop having one end attached to the upper end of one of the fabric sections and its other end similarly attached to the upper end of the second fabric section, said loop being slidably maintained between its ends in a fastener attached to the shoulder strap of the garment. With this arrangement, means is provided by which the sections of the bust cup will adjustably position themselves relatively to one another to provide a cup or pocket which will properly fit the contour of the bust while lending the commensurate support thereto.
These and other objects are attained by the invention, a more particular description of which will hereinafter appear and be set forth in the claim appended hereto.
In the accompanying drawing, wherein an illustrative embodiment of the invention is disclosed:
Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a brassiere constructed in accordance with the invention, and
Fig. 2 is a view looking at the inside of one of the bust cups of the brassiere.
Referring to the embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawing, l indicates generally the body of the brassiere. The bust cups thereof are each composed of an outer fabric section or ply 3 overlying an inner fabric section 2. Each of these fabric sections 2 and 3 may be suitably shaped to assume the desired cup contour and they overlap one another in the manner clearly shown in the drawing.
1 c a m. (01. 2-42)" Z The two overlapping fabricsections 2 and 3 are secured together .at the bottom edge as by the line. of stitching 20. The relatively low or short side edge 5 of the outer section 3 is secured.v by the stitching 2| .to the longer side edge 22 of.
the inner fabric section 2 so that the edge 2| extends upwardly for only a part of the length or height of the edge 22 of the inner fabric cupsection 2.
Y The opposite side edge 25.0f the inner fabric.
section terminates at 1 and is relatively short as compared to the much longer'adjacent side edge 23 of the outer fabric section 3, these two edges being secured together by the stitching,
24, and the edge 25,0f section 2 is thus located in back of the section 3 or positioned next to the body of the wearer.
The arrangement described is such that a very substantial portion of the upper part of each of the overlying fabric sections 2 and 3 is free of connection with one another. Consequently, these upper portions of the two sections 2 and 3 can spread apart or distend laterally and outwardly from one another according to the contour of the bust so that an accommodation of each bust cup to shape and size of the bust is had while nevertheless providing bust coverage at all times.
While the accommodation of the bust cups to the shape and size of the bust is desirable, it is necessary that this be not attained at a sacrifice of bust support, hence means is provided by which a proper support of the bust cups is had despite the fact that the fabric sections thereof may be spread or separated to enable them to operate as heretofore described. At 9 is indicated a fabric loop which has one end attached at H) to the centrally located upper terminal of the outer fabric section 3 and its opposite end attached at H by stitching or otherwise to the central upper terminal of the inner fabric section 2. This loop 9 extends slidably through the loop portion of a fastener I2 of known construction, which fastener is adjustably attached to one end of the shoulder strap I3 of the brassiere. This arrangement is such that the loop 3 is slidable through the fastener I2 and enables said loop to freely move through the fastener according to the spread or separation of the fabric sections 2 and 3 under bust pressure. As a result of the construction described, binding or undue pull or strain on any parts of the brassiere is wholly avoided and a great deal of comfort is secured with an assurance of fit of the brassiere despite variance in bust contour.
The brassiere is provided with the conventional back sections l4 and 11. That indicated at I1 is provided with the expansible strap I8 carrying hooks IQ for selective engagement with any pair of the eyelets it provided in the band I5 attached to the back section l4.
Through the arrangement described, a brassiere is provided in which each bust cup is formed with overlapping panels or sections, 2 and 3 Gone nected only at the side edges and bottom and being free of connection in the larger upper portion of each section, whereby said free portions are capable of separation or distension from one another to enlarge the cup and enable it to con;
form itself to bust shape and size. coupled with a self-adjustable supporting strap connection, as described results in a braii ire oi next,
bility of fit with an assurance of comfort during 7 wear.
For illustrative purpose, the brassire shown in the drawing is indicated as being free of decorative material, but it will be understood that thesame' in actual manufacture may be suitably deco-r rated or embellished with lace or trimmings or other decorative elements well known in this ingdustry.
While I have described one embodiment; of the invention, it is obvious that the same is not to. be restricted thereto, but is broad enough to: cover allstructures coming within the scope of the anneared claim.
What I claim is:-
In a brassier'e, an outer body portion having a pair of bust cups from which side flap extensions project, an inner fabric section located in and behind the bust-covering area of the body portion, said inner fabric section being also provided with a pair of bust cups, the inner fabric section being of greater height at a point between the bust cups than the height of the outer body portion at that point so that the inner fabric section projects above the outer section between the bust cups, the lower edges of the outer body portion and inner fabric section being connected toga her by s itchin tending a one t e bo o or the garment, the side edges of; the inner section being attached by vertical seaming to the outer body portion, said side edges of the inner section being of less height than the height of the outer body portion at said vertical seams, and
suspension lQQps for the bust cups of the outer body portion and inner section, the outer body portion and inner iabric section being of the same height at the points of attachment of the suspension loops.
VICTOR I. BECKER.
