STAY AND LACING FOR CORSETS, 86C.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 601,446, dated March 29, 1898.

Application led August 17, 1897. Serial No. 648,545. (No model.)

To all whom t may concern.-

Be it known that I, WILLIAM R. MEsTLnR, of Rochester, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Stays and Lacings for Corsets, &c. andIdo hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specication, and to the reference-numerals marked thereon.

My present invention relates to corsets and similar articles which are adjusted by cords or lacings, and has for its objects to provide an improved stay and a roller which is simple in construction and permits the use of stays at the edges of the lacing-opening Without detraeting from their iiexibility or interfering with the movements of the wearer; and to these and other ends it consists in certain improvements hereinafter fully described, the novel features being pointed out in the claims at the end of this specification.

In the drawings, Figure l is a rear view of a portion of a corset provided with my improvements, a part of the outer covering being broken away; Fig. 2, a cross-sectional view on the line c of Fig. l; Fig. 3, a longitudinal sectional View through one of the compound steels, showing in dotted lines the position of the parts when the steel is bent.

Similar reference-numerals in the several iigures denote similar parts.

As the particular construction of the corset-body or other article is immaterial as far as my present invention is concerned, I have only shown the proximate edges of the two side portions of a corset, (indicated by l 1,) whichareconnectedbythelacing. Arranged at the edge of each corset-section l are the compound stays, composed of two flexible steel strips 2 2X, each located in a separate pocket formed in the textile covering material 3 and secured to the body-section l of the corset, said strips extending the full length of the corset, and between them are arranged the rollers 4, over which the continuous lacing cord or tape 5 passes in the manner shown in Fig. 1, so that by drawing upon the tape the stays at the edges of the body-sections are drawn together evenly and equally through out their length.

The rollers 4 are each mounted upon spacing studs or pins 6, extending between the strips 2 2X, and having shoulders 7 engaging the inner proximate sides of the strips to keep the latter separated or spaced the required distance to permit the free rotation of the rollers. These studs are in the present embodiment secured rigidly to the inner strip 2 by having their reduced ends beyond.I the shoulder passed through countersunk perforations therein and upset or laterally extended into the countersinks to produce a smooth surface, as shown in Fig. 2. The outer strips 2 are provided with elongated slots 9, countersunk on the outer side, and the outer portions of the reduced ends of the studs are upset or spread laterally, as at l0, so that their outer portions are substantially iush with the outer face of the strips, said heads serving to prevent the separation of the compound stays 2 and 2X, but permitting them to be flexed by the movements of the Wearers body, the studs then sliding in the slots in the steels 2X, as shown in Fig. 2.

This construction of lacing is particularly advantageous in that the corset may be laced tightly Without liability of, distortion, as the compound stays carrying the rollers at the edge maintain all the rollers in the same plane, and at the same time the rollers are permitted to turn freely, and the stays are capable of being bent, so that the wearer may bend in any direction Without interfering with the free movement of the rollers, and Without being injured by absolutely rigid back steels.

While it is eminently desirable that the outer side of the slots in the strips 2 be countersunk to prevent the heads of the studs from wearing the textile covering, this is not absolutely essential, as said heads could be upset on the outside of slots not countersunk,`

which would hold the stays and permit the necessary flexing, but the iinish would not be l as good.

It will also be understood that While the construction described is particularly adapted for corsets it could as well be applied to gloves or to other garments or articles, and the stays could be applied otherwise than as shown.

I claim as my inventionl. In a lacing for garments, 85o., the com- IOO bination of two compound stays, each composed of a pair of iiexible elastic strips, one strip 'of each pair having longitudinal slots, the studs arranged between the strips having the reduced ends extending through the slots, the shoulders engaging the proximate faces of the strips and the laterally-extended heads on the ends wider than the slots, rollers arranged on the studs and the lacing extending around the rollers; substantially as described.

2. A compound corset-stay consisting oi' a pair of iexible elastic strips, one strip being provided with a series of longitudinally-extending slots, a series of spacing-studs secured rigidly to the other strip and passing through the slots in former, each stud having a shoulder near its end engaging the inner side of thev i slotted strip and a head for engaging the outer side thereof and lacing-rollers on the studs slightly narrower than the space between the shoulders on the studs and the strip to which the studs are secured, whereby the stay may be bent and the rollers permitted to turn freely on the studs.

3. The combination with the flexible elastic strip having apertures therein, and the c0- operating strip having the longitudinally-extending slots countersunk on their outer sides, of the studs having the reduced ends passing through the apertures and slots in the strips and the shoulders engaging the inner proximate sides thereof, one of the ends of the studs being secured rigidly to one strip and the other having the tapered heads operating in the countersink of the slots, and the rollers between the strips and mounted loosely on the studs, substantially as described.

4. A corset-stay consisting of two flexible strips, a series of spacing-studs engaging the inner sides of the strips and limiting their approach, and having heads for preventing their separation, a slotted connection between one of the strips and one end of each stud, and a series of lacing-rollers freely rotatable on the studs between the strips and narrower than l:the space between them, whereby the stay may be flexed and the rollers permitted to turn freely on the studs.
