Description

Sept. 2, 1952 ER BLOUSE HOLDER Filed Feb. 26, 1951 IN V EN TOR.

apertures I and It in succession and folded back 7 on itself until'its ends are of the same length; and a plurality of knots l1, [8, etc. are secured by merely knotting both strands at once to form a multiplicity of places of attachment for adjusting the length of the device.

In Fig. 2 the tension member is broken away at l9 to illustrate the fact that it may be madeof various lengths. When used for a blouse holder, it may, for example, be from six to twelve inches in length from the disc [2 to the knot ll. When used as a sanitary pad securing device, as shown in Fig. 5, it may have nothing but a short one or two inch projecting string 20 on the device, whichneed not have any resilient characteristics andis merely used for pulling the disc back into the position of Fig. 4.

. Referring to Figs. 3 and 4, these figures illustrate themode of attaching the present device securely to a garment, such as a pantie or a blouse, without danger of tearing the garment. For example, the cloth of the garment is drawn about the disc 12 in Fig. 3; and the disc, bearing the fabric folded back upon it, is pushed edgewise through the slot l4.

- It is shown almost through the slot in Fig. 3. During this action the relatively thin fabric wrinkles, but the wrinkles themselves are also thin and pass readily through the slot; and the tension member [3 also passes through the slot. As soon as the disc has passed through the slot edgewise it is turned to the position of Fig. l, transverse to the slot, but parallel to the plate l I. The disc is then pulled backward against the plate; and the fabric is spread out about the securing device, which then provides a firm nontearing securement to the, fabric.

Referring to Fig. 1, this illustrates one of the devices used as a blouse holder. The upper end of thedevice has its disc 12 and plate II secured to the blouse 21 near its lower border 22. The tension member then extends downward and has one of its loops passed over the securing member of a standard stocking garter strap, as shown in Fig. 6.

For example, such a garter strap has a base member 23 with an upstanding headed button 24.

' It also has a wire member 25 pivotally mounted on the base at 26, having its narrow portion 21 placed over the head and pulled upward until the, narrow portion will not pass the head.

, One of the loops formed by the knot IT or the knot 18 is placed overthis wire member 25 before it is secured over the headed member 24, which carries the stocking. Thus by selection of the proper loop and by providing a suitable number of knots, the effective length of the tension member l3 may be adjusted to the height of any person or to the distance between the blous border and the garter.

. The stocking and garter pull down on the device, which-in turn pulls down upon the blouse to keep it from creeping upward out of the skirt.

,The garter may be a garter carried by a garter belt, a pantie, or any suitable garment.

It will thus be observed that the present blouse holder involves the use of only three additional elements, the tension member, the securing disc, and the slotted anchor plate.

Referring to Fig. 5, this shows the use of my securing device for securing a sanitary napkin in the. pantie or similar garment. One of the securing devices is used at each end 28, 29of the sanitary" napkin 30. such napkins are usually provided with a longitudinally projecting piece of gauze at each end.

In this case the gauze and fabric of the pantie at the point 28, for example, are placed upon each other with the anchoring plate II on the inside; and the button or disc I2 is pushed through, carrying the fabric from the outside and with it the gauze through the slot I4. The

I short tension member 20 is used to pull the button back against the inner surface of the anchoring plate II; and the remaining upwardly extending gauze is then turned downward over the plate l'l.

Suitable points 28 and 29 are selected on the pantie with respect to the waistband thereof so that the sanitary napkin ispulled up snugly by the pantie.

It should also benoted that the amount of rigidity in the disc and plate may be relatively low; and thin plastic sheets may be used, which are bendable, provided they are not capable of being deformed by the light forces which are applied to this device. 7

Thus the sanitary pad securing device may be made of plastic sheet material which is bendable, but which does not bend out of place because. it has a limited amount of rigidity in the present installation.

It will thus be observed that'fundamentally the sanitary pad securing device and the blouse holder include the same elements, except that in the blouse holder the tension member must be made long enough to extend down to be attached to the garter.

The present device is so flat that it is practically invisible; and as it extends with its plate and disc parallel to the body surfaces of the wearer, it is not usually felt by the wearer. The device provides a firm mode of securement to relatively thin and fragile fabrics without likelihood of slipping or tearing them; and it may be manufactured and sold at a very low price because of its simple construction and the minimum amount of material employed in its manufacture.

While I have illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, many modifications may be made without departing from. the spirit of the invention, and I do not wish to be limited to the precise details of construction set forth, but desire to avail myself of all changes within the scope of the appended claim.

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

A'blouse holder assembly comprising a lower portion of ablouse, a thin, fiat disc having an aperture for passing and securing an elongated elastic tension member, said blouse portion being covered over said disc and gathered about said tension member, and a fiat, rigid slot member, said slot member having an elongated, narrow slot of sufficient length to passthe blouse covered disc and of sufficient width to pass the blouse covered disc and tension member, the rigid slot member having the disc and covering blouse portion passed through the slot, and the elastic tension member pulling the disc flatly against said slot member, the said elastic tension member being provided at its opposite end. with a plurality of loops located at successively longer portions of said elastic member, for attachment to a greater member, to regulate the length and tension of said tension member, and a garter member secured to a stocking, and having a part of the arter member passed through one of said loops, the said tension member pulling upward on said garter member and downward on said blouse.
