. ARTICLE OF PERSONAL HYGIENE BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The primary object of this invention is to provide an article of personal hygiene for female wear to prevent spotting or staining at the crotch of undergarments which article is simple and easy to apply, comfortable to .wear, adjustable and includes a readily replaceable shield normally disposed through the wearer's crotch. Another object of the invention is the provision of novel, easily operable attaching means between the ends of a. crotch shield and a hip-hugging band. Other ob-. jects will be apparent during the course of the following detailed description. v

THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the article of personal hygtene;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged perspective view of the crotch shield as attached to a hip-hugging bandrportions of the latter being omitted for convenience of illustration;

FIG. 3 shows in perspective the manner of construction of tabs forming a part of the band;

FIG. 4 illustrates the mode of securing a crotch shield end to FIG. 5 is a plan view of a crotch shield.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION in FIG. 3 of fabric cut; in a double T-shape and folded and stitched. Tab part 14 is folded over the Stem of part 13 to form a panel. Likewise, a tab part 15 is folded over the stern of part 16 to form a second panel. Then the crossheads of parts 13 and 16 are medially folded as indicated by the dotted line axis vertical disposition of the paired strands permits them to be separated or spread as they pass over the hips to insure com fort, to more securely hold the connector bands 10 and 18 in place and to reduce the likelihood that the belt will be detected when worn under a skirt or dress.

The paired and juxtaposed depending tabs or panels of the connectors 10 and 1 have interfitting male and female fastener parts 11 and 12 secured in register therein as best seen in FIG. 4. These fasteners are generally referred to as snap fasteners in which a protruberance of part 11 is inserted into a gripping cavity in part 12 and there secured.

A thin sheet 20 of absorbent material in the elongated form shown in FIG. 5 is provided as the crotchshield. Such may be cut from a soft fabric, either woven or nonwoven, or it may be a piece of wetstrengthened tissue or aper. Desirably, shield 2 is thm, nonabraslve and sultaby strong to withstand stresses and strains that may be encountered. Preferably it is disposable. i

The shield 20 has two series of paired perforations. Holes 21, 22 and 26, adjacent end 28 and holes 23, 24 and 25, adjacent end 27 cooperate with the fastener parts 11 and 12 when the shield 20 is joined to the belt 9. The lateral spacing of the pairs of holes is the same as the spacing of the paired fasteners. The wearer attaches the ends of the crotch shield to the juxtaposed tab panels by selecting those holes that insure the shield is closely disposed in the crotch against the body.

It will be apparent from the foregoing description that the 7 article herein is light in weight, not cumbersome and may be worn with comfort. Its ii'l conspicuousness is patent and its utility obvious. The wearer may readily dispose of the crotch element 20 and replace it at negligible expense. The cost of the same is intended to be insignificant and this end is reached by the use of disposable tissue type of papers which are usually wet-strengthened by the use of resin-compounds incorporated to overlie each other as in FIG. 4. Note that the crossheads of parts 13 and 16 extend outward beyond the ends of the double-layer panels and, when the'ends of; strands l7 and 19 are placed therebetween, they are stitched together. The perimeters of the panels 13, Hand 15, are likewise stitched but the portions of the two tabs or panels are'not stitched together except as they are joined to waist-embracing elastic strands l 7 and 19. I

EAch of the T-shaped connectors 10 and 18 has a pair of juxtaposed depending tab panels. The crossheads of the connectors are linearly joined to the pair of elastic strands l7 and 19. Thus, it is provided a belt to encircle the waist having paired crotch shieldreceiving tab means; front-and backwThe during manufacture.
