HENRY HARRY TREFFER, OF DAVENPORT, IOWA.
I Specification of Letters Patent.
Application led December 24, 1907. Serial No. 407,883.
Patented July 28, 1908.
and so that the corset will be` glove-fittingV and may be drawn tight without a tendency to move upward or downward, remaining while worn at all times and under all conditions where it properly belongs, and also to so out the corset that no matter how loose or how tight the corsetis drawn over the hips, perfect comfort at such points will be obtained, and the abdomen will be comfortably sustained and prevented fromv protruding, giving the figure a perfect-pose and a natural position.
It is a further purpose of the invention to so cut the corset that it will comfortably and snugly conform to the body of the wearer, particularly at the waist, hips and bust, and so that the corset will tend to support the back and give perfect freedom to-the bust, not interfering in the least with the breathing capacity of the wearer.
The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of 'the several parts 'as willv be hereinafter fully set forth and pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specilication in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the corset viewed from the front; Fig. 2 4 is a similar view taken from the rear; and Fig. 3 is a plan .view of the corset laid back showing the several sections separated.
Two front sections A and A are employe,d one section being provided with the customary eyes 10 to receive hooks 11 carried by the o posing section, and furthermore each of tlie front sections A and A is provided with a series of aperture 12 adjacent its outer edge or that edge which faces the rear. In connection with the front sections A and A forward side sections B and B are employed, which latter sections are of theV same construction, each being provided with a peak 13 at the lower portion of its forward edge and the under edge of eachforward side section 1s more or less curved, as 1s shown at 14, the curvature extending from the said peak'to the rear vertical portion of a section, and that portion of the sections B and B that is opposed to the front sections A and A is provided with` a series of apertures or eyelets 15 corresponding to the apertures or eyelets in' the aforesaid front sections A and A.
In connection with the forward side sections B and B', rear side sections C and C are employed, and these latter sections C and C are rovided with peaks 16 at their rear vertica portions, forming a part of the bottom portions of said sections, as is shown in Fig. 3, and the under edges 17 of these rear side sections C and C are more or less curved, being acontinuation of the curvatures 14 at the under edges of the forward side sections B and B. Back sections D and Dare also employed and are 'provided with a series of eyelets d adjacent their opposing edges, and the eyelets of each section are preferably of the same number and have the same arrangement.
The back sections D and D are secured to the rear side sections C and C in the customary manner, namely, by suitable stitching, and the rear side sections C and C and the `forward side sections B and B are similarly 1 cutting of the lower ortions of the side sections B and B and and C', are lled in by hip sections E and E whose opposing edges are oppositely curved, the upper edge 18 being upwardly curved and the lower edge 19 downwardly or reverselyv curved, and the curved lines at the top and at the bottom meet at the end portions of the said hip sections, as is shown at 20 in Fig. 3. The hip sections are stitched to the forward and 'rear sidesections and extend from the lower ends of the peaks 13 to the corresponding portions of the peaks 16.' These hip sections E and E when the garment is worn occupy a osition over the upper portion of the his o the wearer and give that peculiar gloveike formation where the curved line of the waist meets that of the hips.
In addition to each of the hi sections E and E', two skirt sections F an F are provided, and these skirt sections are secured to the lower edges of the hip sections, their upper edges 22 conforming to the curvature of the lower edges 19 of the hip sections E and F/ while the lower edges of the skirt sections are conveXed. The skirt sections eXtend from a point below the peaks 13 of the forward side sections B and B', and constitute lower continuations of the forward side sections, and the hip sections E and E' and their skirt sections F and F are provided, one with apertures 21, and the other with apertures 21a, that constitute continuations of the apertures or eyelets 15 in the forward side sections, and the eyelets or apertures 15 and 21 correspond in number and in arrange ment to the number and arrangement of the eyelets 12 in the front sections A and A.
The outer end portions of the skirt sections F and F are downwardly and outwardly inclined, as is shown at 24 in Fig. 3, and the rear end portions of the skirt sections F and F' are stitched in any suitable or approved manner to the forward edges of the back sections D and D'. The back sections D and D' are not directly connected one with the other but are united by a tongue 27 that extends at the inner face of the garment from the top to the bottom, thus while the back of the garment is closed the back sections may still be drawn together so as to cause the garment to fit snugly to the back and serve as a support therefor. To that end laces 28 and 28'EL are employed at the upper and at the lower group of the rear eyelets, but these rear laces are not absolutely necessary, and the intermediate eyelets constitute means for ventilation, and that is their sole function.
rIhe main lacing of the corset is formed at the front and the laces 29 there used are passed through the eyelets in the front sections A and A', and the corresponding eyelets in the forward side sections B and B', the hip sections E and E', and the skirt sections F and F', as is clearly shown in Fig. 1.
A garment cut and designed as described, fits the body comfortably and snugly and does not interfere with any of the organs inclosed, and while I have illustrated the skirt of the corset as cut away or recessed at the hip sections, I do not confine myself to such construction.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent,-
1. In a corset, the combination with the back sections having ventilating apertures and provided with a tongue connection eX- tending at the `inner face of the garment, of rear side sections attached to the back sections, forward side sections attached to the rear side sections, hip sections secured to the forward and rear side sections, skirt sections secured to the hip sections and to the back sections, front sections, means for locking the front sections, and laces for connecting the front sections with the forward side sections and with the hip and skirt sections.
2. In a corset, the combination with the back sections, of rear side sections connected with the back sections, forward side sections connected with the rear side sections, hip sece tions secured to the front andv rear side sections, skirt sections secured to the hip sections and to the back sections, and laces connecting the front sections with the forward side sections and with the hip and skirt sections.
3. In a corset, the combination with the back sections having a flexible tongue connection, and ventilating apertures in each of said back sections, of side sections attached to the back sections, front sections, means for locking the front sections together, and laces connecting the front sections with the side sections.
4. In a corset, the combination with. back sections, front sections and forward and rear side sections connected with each other and with the back sections, the forward and rear side sections being shorter than the front and rear sections and having their lower edges concaved, and laces connecting the side and the front sections, of reversely curved hip sections fitted in and. secured to the curved portions of the front and rear side sections,
and skirt sections secured to the hip sections and to the back sections', the lacing between the forward side sections and the front sec tions being continued along the forward edges of the hip and the skirt sections.
5. In a corset, the combination. with back sections, front sections and forward and rear side sections connected with each other and with the back sections, the forward and rear side sections heilig shorter than the front and rear sections and having their lower edges concaved, laces connecting the forward side sections with the front sections, a flexible tongue connecting the back sections, ventilating apertures at the back portion of the corset, and laces crossing the said tongue at the rear of the corset, of reversely curved hip sections fitted in and secured to the curved portions of the front and rear side sections, and skirt sections secured to the hip sections and to the back sections, the lacing between the forward side sections and the front sections being continued along the forward edges of the hip and the skirt sections.
In testimony whereof I have signed iny name to this specification in the presence of CHARLES W. JONES, GEORGE S. ATKINSON.
