This invention relates to foundat on gfi-r lkfimd such as panties,corselettes, girdles and .131 like and of the type having .attubular .trunk'ensagin 'bodylcom'posed .of elastic fabric stretchable when worn. to .conform .to and yieldably l ppq l 12 1 trunk orbody of the wearer.

n It is custormary to manufacture permanently tubular garments ,of 51711.8 above charact r air m conventional two waystretch fabric, i e-..ifahric providing .a principalstretch .Widlihhhdfl fillistantially reduced. or

limited .strctchfin-denthnil the garment, .and .thetinvention is particularly related to garments of the type specified and fabricated of such material.

Hitherto in the manufacture .of such foundai c s men -a Q iF1Q ?1b1F;nPl?f% ;Qf -.mfi of construction have been propos d and emplojyed to provide abdominalcontrol andfigure correction by the use of reinforcing panels in the body of the garment. 'i

These panels have .incertaintknowmconstrllctions of" the garments -been vreinforced ;wi:th bones,-tapes-or other memberswhich contributed very materially'to the cost.ofgproductiongofithe garments due to the unavoidable machining operations and the general complex construction of the complete garment consequent upon the inclusion of said panels. v

Now the principal objective of the instant invention is to provide, in a foundation garment, a figure or abdominal control panel in the tubular trunk engaging body thereof, having the characteristics of simplicity in construction with attendant economy in production whilst effecting when worn by the wearer an efficient yieldable support for the abdominal region and particularly the lower abdomen so as to impart the appearanceof figure normality to the wearer.

This principal objective is achieved according to this invention in a foundation garment of the type specified by a body constructed of elastic fabric and having a front panel of double thickness comprised of two sections of the fabric so disposed that the courses of the elastic yarn of the respective sections are oppositely inclined whereby an inward pressure'and upwardly directed pull are exerted upon a wearer's abdominal region for figure correction.

The accompanying drawings depict a practical arrangement of the figure control panel in a girdle, constructed in accordance with the invention.

In these drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the girdle partly in section to illustrate the two overlapped sections forming the figure control panel.

In completing the tubular body 5 from the shaped blank, the angular ends '|a8 are drawn together and assembled in overlapped relation with the end 8 overlying the end I and the latter end underlying the former end as shown by Figs. 5 and 6 respectively.

The angular ends I and 8 are then each stitched as at II to the main length or body of the girdle by a lap seaming operation to form and present the quadrilateral reinforcing panel indicated generally at I2 and centrally located at the front of the girdle to overlie the abdominal region.

The panel 12 is defined by the lines of stitching H in the completed girdle, and itwill beapparent that the panel is of double thickness and consists of two quadrilateral areas, or sections 13 and M at opposite ends of the blank bounded by the angular ends 1 and 8 and broken lines indicated by l5 and Hi.

It is of importance that in the formation of the panel l2 in the above manner, the body 5 takes a substantially frusto conical shape whereby the courses of elastic yarn at the back of the garment as illustrated in Fig. 3 are substantially horizontal or concentric with the axis of the body, but at the front of the latter resultant upon or responsive to the form of the body. the courses of elastic fabric at the front of the girdle assume a downward sloping position and extend to and through the panel l2 in downwardly disposed and opposite inclinations, see Figs. 1 and 2.

Thus the courses of the elastic yarn 8 in each sectiono'f .the control panel IZ-are coextensive with the courses and the yarn in each portion of the front of the body 5 extending from the panel,

whereby inclination of the courses of elastic yarn in one position of the panels is disposed at an opposite inclination relatively to the coursespof yarn in the other panel as viewed in Figs. 1 and 2.

body and oppositely inclined towards and across the panel at the front of the body.

Accordingly, the principal direction of stretch of the elastic yarn in each section of the control panel and. the sections as whole, is at, substan tially equal and opposite inclinations. 1

As viewed in Fig. 2 the direction of stretch of the panel sections is upwardly inclined towards the sides l7|8 of the girdle which has the desirable object of imparting an upwardly and inwardly directed pull and pressure upon the underlying front of a Wearers body for figure correction purposes.

The top of the body 5 of the girdle has'a seamed peripheral band 19 v of the same material and conventional suspenderbands 2B are attached to the lower end of the body. Lines 2| define the limits of the back or rear of the girdle.

The opposite ends of the blankor pattern for a specified comprising a body composed of and formed by-a'single blank or length of two Way stretch fabric including; courses'of elasticyarn and having an integral front panel of double thickness comprised of twoend sections of the thickness and the courses of elastic yarn are circumferentially disposed about the back of the 3. A foundation garment as claimed in claim 2 and wherein the ends of the blank or length are shaped ,to comprise angularly related terminal portions, whereby the ends when overlapped comprise a substantially quadrilateral panel.

4. A foundation garment according to claim 3 and wherein the angularly related terminal portions of the overlapped sections of the panel are secured to the body of fabric by lap seaming.

5. A foundation garment as claimed in claim 1 and wherein the ends of the blank or length are shaped to comprise Jangularly related terminal portions, whereby each end when overlapped defines two sides of a substantially quadrilateral panel, the sides of. said quadrilateral being stitched to .the'immediately adjacent body along only two stitching lines each extending from top t bottom of the garment 'andsecuring'an end of the blank to an. intermediate portion thereof.
