FRANCES BURNS ATTORNEYS Patented Jan. 8, 1952 ff-dUNlTED STATES PATENT OFFICE Frances Burns, Philadelphia, Pa. 7 Application February 1, 1951, Serial No. 208,927

This invention relates. to diaper panties, i. e, garments which serve the dual function of a. panty for an infant and as a means for holding a ,diaper -in proper. position on the wearers body to catch and retain body fluids. I I

.It' is .theprimary object of the invention to provide a diaper panty of greatly improved and simplified construction, which can be manufactured very readily and inexpensively on either a small or large commercial scale, which is exceptionally neat and attractive in appearance, which can be put on and taken off a child very easily by an older person, which is very comfortable and well fitting, which allows the maximum ofbodily freedom and does not interfere with circulation, which catches and absorbs all body fluids, keeps them out of contact with the body and prevents seepage thereof, and hence" eliminates chafing and irritation, and which is very sanitary and readily launderable.

Another object of importance is to provide a garment which meets -allthe use requirements of a diaper panty, which has all the claimed advantages of prior art diaper panties with none of their disadvantages.

Other objects and advantages will appear as the description proceeds.

Referring briefly to the drawings, wherein the presently preferred embodiment is shown for the purpose of illustrating and exemplifying the invention, it will be seen that:

Figure l is a plan view of the diaper panty in stretched condition, looking at the inside thereof, part of the panty-being broken away and the diaper being omitted;

Figure 2 is a cross-section on line 2--2 of Figure 1 on an enlarged scale;

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure l, the panty being in unstretched condition, and the diaper being included, parts of the panty being broken away; and

Figure 4 is a perspective View of the garment as it appears when worn by an infant.

Referring to Figure l in greater detail, it will be seen that the garment of the invention, when laid out fiat, is generally of dumb bell or hour glass form, in order that the garment will fit about an infant's body below the waist and between the legs. The upper edge It! is substantially parallel to the lower edge I2 but is substantially longer, for a reason which will appear. The upper portion, which is intended to fit over the lower back of the infant, is substantially rectangular, and so is the lower portion l6, which is intended to fit over the abdomen of the in- 4 Claims. (01. 128-287) fant. The side edges shown so as to adapt the garmentto fit about the legs of the wearer.

The garment consists essentially of an outer layerof fabric 22, which may be of any material suitable for panties such as cotton cloth, rayon, silk, nylon, Seersucker, etc., and an inner layer 24, which is preferably of a material which is substantially waterproof but does not chafe or irritate the delicate skin of a child. As an example of a suitable material may be mentioned a fabric made from vinylidenechloride. The two layers are conterminou's and are sewn together about their edges. Lace edging 26, 28 may be provided at the concave side edges i8, 20 of the garment for ornamental purposes. For the same reason, the outer layer 22 may be of an attractive color or shade. being provided with a hem 36 which receives an elastic band 32, so as to render the garment adjustable about the waist of the wearer. When the garment is in unstretched condition as shown in Figure 3, the elastic draws in the upper edge l0, so that it assumes a concave shape of substantially the same length as the lower edge I2.

As illustrated in Figures 1 and 3, the garment is provided at each of the four corners on its inner side with a substantially trapezoidal pocket, said pockets being denoted by the numerals 34, 36, 38 and 40. Each of the pockets has its outer edges secured, as by sewing, to the edges of the garment at its corner. The horizontal edge of each of the pockets extends beyond the vertical median line of the garment, and the other secured edges extend beyond the horizontal median line, as a result of which the free edges of the pockets overlap, forming a continuous channel 42 about the edges of the garment on its inside. There is also formed substantially at the center of the garment a diamond-shaped opening 44, through which a diaper D may be inserted into the pouch formed by the four pockets. The diaper may be either of disposable tissue or easily-launderable, moisture-absorbing fabric.

The pockets are each preferably formed of a sheet of fabric folded on itself, the folded edges constituting the unsecured edges of the pockets. The pockets are preferably of the same material as the inner layer 24.

As shown, the side edges of the blank above and below the concave portions E8, 253 may be provided with coacting snap fasteners it, 45a of conventional form. If thought necessary or desirable, transverse elastic bands 48, 58, may be l8 and 20 are concave as The upper edge NJ is shown as provided as shown, as additional securing means for the diaper. v

It is thought the manner of use of the garment of the invention will be obvious from the foregoing description. The diaper can be inserted very readily through the diamond-shaped opening, and may be just as readily removed for replacement. The diaper is held very securely in the pouch formed by the pockets. The garment can be put very easily on an infant, and can be just as easily taken off by an older person. Figure 4 shows how the garment looks while being worn. The elastic hem 30 is at the rear and serves to keep the garment in position irrespective of substantial differences in girth of wear-- ers. The garment is very neat appearing and ornamental, and is kept from becoming soiled by the absorbent diaper D. Whatever bodily fluids cannot be absorbed by the diaper are retained by the peripheral channel 42 and are kept from dripping from the concave'sides I8, or the garment.

The foregoing disclosure has'been'given by way of. illustration and. exemplification, and is'not intended to restrict the invention beyond what is required by the state of the prior art.

I claim:

1; A diaper panty consistin of a substantially flat blank having two upper and two lower corners, a pocket provided at each of the four corners, the horizontal secured edge of each of said pockets extending beyond .the vertical median line of the blank, and the other secured edge extending beyond the horizontal median line of the blank, whereby there is formed a pouch having a diamond-shaped openingat substantially the center of the blank for receiving a diaper and a continuous fluid-retaining channel about the outer periphery of the blank.

2. A diaper panty consistingof a substantially flat" blank having two upper and two lower corners, a pocket provided at each of the four corners, the horizontal secured edge of each or said pockets extendingbeyond the vertical median line of the blank, and the other secured edge extending beyond the horizontal median line of the blank, whereby there is formed a pouch having a diamond-shaped opening at substantially the center of the blank for receiving a diaper and a continuous fluid-retaining channel about the outer periphery of the blank, the pockets each being formed of a sheet of fabric folded on itself, the folded edges constituting the unsecured edges of said pockets.

3. A diaper panty consisting of a substantially 'fiatblank of generally dumb bell or hour glass form, a substantially trapezoidal pocket at each of the four corners, the horizontal secured edge of each of saidpo'ckets extending beyond the vertical median line of the blank, and the other secured edge extending beyond the horizontal median line of the blank; whereby there is formed a pouch having a diamond-shaped *openingat substantially the center of the blankforrr'eceiving'a diaper'and a continuous fluid-retaining channel about the outer peripheryof the-blank;
