CHARLES H. scoTT, or NEW YORK, N. Y.

ARM-SCYE BUST-FORM.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 29, 1907.

Application filed January 25, 1905. Serial No. 242,610.

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES H. SooTT, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn,

5 in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Arm-Scye Bust-Form, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

In the bust-forms heretofore produced there have been many disadvantages. They have usually been of such construction as to be very uncomfortable, owing to the air confined between them and the body, the tendency of which was to produce a constantly increasing temperature. They have also been so constructed that their edges were of considerable thickness and would under certain conditions be perceptible through the outer garments; and they have also been made so that they would unduly pad the form at certain points without due regard for symmetry and a neat appearance, no bustform having been constructed, so far as I am aware, which provided for undevelopment in certain places.

The principal objects of the present invention are to overcome these and other objections by providing a bust-form which will be light and comfortable to the wearer and produce an attractive and symmetrical figure, besides providing for the better fitting of the outer garments also, to provide for the es cape of heat or air confined between the pad and the body. The arm-scye is so constructed as to full in the deficiency of an undeveloped bust from the shoulder downward in front to the part of the arm-scye underneath the arm.

Another important object of the invention is to so construct the device as to do away with all strappings and harness which are usually used 111 devices of this character and are annoying and injurious to the wearer. This I accomplish by so constructing the device that it can be secured to the outside of the corset and will need no other support.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a view showing how the device is worn in ractice. Fig. 2 is a plan view of one form 0 my invention with parts omitted, and Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the same on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2.

construction of the device the pad will beformed to comply with the requirements existing,.and any one or more of these extensions may be omitted. In fact, the device may be constructed with the omission of the entire'central portion shown in Fig. 2, so that it will contain merely the extensions 7) and c and a thin body portion a between them. This body portion and the main portion of the bust are constructed in a concavo-convex form ordinarily, so that they will constitute a symmetrical pad. They are also provided with a series of depressions e on their inner surface, for the purpose of receiving air and permitting it to circulate. This provides for the ventilation of the device to a certain extent and in use adds greatly to the comfort of the wearer. These depressions may be secured in a number of waysas, for example, by tufting, stitching, or any form of fastening which will leave the tops of the depressions open and add to the ventilating features of the device.

The pad is preferably constructed so that the greatest thickness is at or near the cen ter, according to the needs of the person who wears it, and in any event it tapers to a thin edge f, so that the outlines of the pad cannot be indicated in any way through the outer clothing. This is preferably accomplished by providing the entire periphery of the form with stitching g, this stitching preferably being in several rows, each parallel with the other and each parallel with the edge, and those nearest the edge being so formed as to make the pad thinner than those nearer the center. The concavo-convex form of the pad is secured by means of darts h placed at convenient points around the outer edge of the device and extending at various angles inwardly therefrom. Self-ventilating rufiies k may be used on the convex surface of the form to add to its convexity and thickness without materially adding to its weight.

The ruffie is omitted from Fig. 2 to show other features. a

It will be observed that the manner in which the ruflie adds to the convexity and thickness is the result of the way in which the ruflies are located on the convex surface of the form. Those near the edge extend outwardly in a plane substantially or nearly parallel with the body of the form, while those of the center or 011 the highest'part of the convex portion extend substantially at right angles to the surface, those at intermediate points varying gradually from a parallel to a perpendicular direction.

'It will be readily seen that by construct; ing pads after the principle set forth above an arm scye and bust-form can be made to give a natural form to the wearer and pro vide for any deficiencies in this part of the body, whether they may occur in the bust itself or in any part near the arm. It'will also be seen that by filling the inner and outer covering with any desired material that will prevent excessive heating and secure low weight and tapering it from the center or thereabout toward. the outer edges of the cloth, and thus causing; an invisible edge when worn under a garment, a great iniprovement will be made-in-the appearance of the article, at the same time adding to the comfort of the wearer. Itwill als'obeunder stood that by building the form with a convex shape and attaching it on the outer side of the corset an artificial bust is produced can" be made in the one shown within the scope of the claim.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent I A'bust-form consisting of a pad of restricted thickness at a plurality of points whereby a pluralityof ventilating-recesses are formed on the inner and outer faces thereof, and

rufiies attached to the outer face of said pad concealing said recesses on the outer face of said pad, said ruffles being disposed substantially circumferentially about a central point and having an erectness increasing progressively from a point near the edges of said pad toward said central point, said ruflies being disposed apart from each other whereby ventilatin'g-c'hetnnels are formed therebetween.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

CHARLES H. SCOTT.
