CORSET AND THE LIKE FASTENING
Albert Rayner Canham, East Sheen, London,
England
Application March 21, 1936, Serial No. ‘70,131
In Great Britain April 10, 1935
8 Claims.
(Cl. 24-204)
This invention relates to improvements in fas
teners for securing and supporting wearing ap
parel, particularly ladies’ corsets, and has for its
object to provide a resilient fastening which lies
5 flat against the body of wearer so as not to dis
turb the outer clothing and requires but a single
operation to fasten the ends of the corset securely
together.
To this end the fastening according to the in
10 vention comprises two ‘interlocking ?at strip
members of resilient material, such as steel or
bone, one strip'member having oppositely dis
posed tongues of different lengths adapted to be
engaged in spaced sockets on the other strip
=15 member by a relative sliding movement between
the two members in the direction of the tongues.
The invention will be further describedgwith
reference to the accompanying drawing, where
1n:—

Figure 1 is an elevation of the fastening with
the two strip members shown detached;
Figure 2 is an elevation of the fastening with
the two strip members in interlocking engage
ment;
25
Figure 3 is a sectional elevation on the line
III—III of Figure 2;
Figure 4 is an alternative form of the fastening
according to the invention, showing the strip
members in interlocking engagement;
30
Figure 5 is a view showing the fastening secur
ing and supporting a corset in position on a per
son; and
Figure 6 is an alternative form of the fastening
according to the invention, the view showing only
35 the socket member, the interlocking strip member
being the same as shown in Figure 1.
'
Referring ?rst to Figures 1 to 3, the socket
strip member consists of two separate superposed
strips I, 2 which are secured together at the cen
40 tre in spaced apart relation by a rivet 3 disposed
near one side of the strips.
At the ends of the
strip 2 are provided laterally projecting flaps 4, 5
4
which are bent over the strip l to form the sock
ets. The two strips are held spaced apart at the
ends adjacent the sockets by means of inturned
lugs 6, 1 formed on the strip I. The interlocking
strip member consists of a ?at strip 8 in the ends
of which are cut longitudinal slots 9, ill to form
a pair of oppositely disposed longitudinal tongues
5 O II, l2 the tongue l2 being cut off shorter that the
tongue II to allow the latter to be slid into the
socket formed by the ?ap 4 and then the two strip
members to be slid relatively of their length to
_ bring the shorter tongue l2 into engagement with
the socket formed by the ?ap 5. Thus the two
members are securely interlocked as illustrated
in Figure 2.
'
To prevent accidental displacement of the two
members when so interlocked the fastening may
be modi?ed as shown in Figure 4.
In this em-
5
bodiment the ?ap 5 is reduced in length and the
shorter tongue I2 is cutaway at the bottom l3
of the adjacent longitudinal slot Ill so as to form
an inwardly projecting catch I4. This catch en- I
gages round'the reduced flap .5 as the corset is 10
fastened round the body-the cut away portion i3
providing the necessary lateral play-and thereby
prevents longitudinal relative displacements be
tween the two members of the fastening due to ,
exertions or movements 'of the wearer.
_
15
The interlocking strip member may be cut away
along its length to allow room for the rivet 3, the
particular feature of having the strips of the
socket member secured in this way by a single
rivet and the bent over ?aps, permitting relative 20
longitudinal movement between the end portions
of the strips I, 2 when a bending action is applied
to the fastener by the wearer bending her body so
that a greater resilience is thereby obtained, add- ,_
ing greatly to the comfort of the wearer. '
25
The ends of the corset may be attached to the
strip members in any convenient manner, such as
by sewing or riveting, for which purpose they may
be perforated to take the sewing or rivets. In the
case of the interlocking strip member for ex- 30
ample, it may be slotted longitudinally as at [5
between the tongues ll, I2 to receive and secure
one edge of the ‘corset. In the case of the socket
member the ends of the corset may be passed
through the two strips I, 2 and sewn down.
35
~ As a protection for the strip members, the ends
of the . corset before being attached may be
wrapped round the strips thereof, the corset end,
in the case of the socket member, ?rst being
passed between the strips l, 2 as indicated above. gs0
For the purpose of facilitating the fastening of
the ends of the corset together on to the body of
a person as shown in Figure 5 the strip 2 having
the ?aps may be provided with a projecting lip
l6 disposed adjacent to the socket formed by the gs5
flap 4 in which the longer tongue II is inserted,
this projecting lip l6 serving to guide the tongue
I I into the socket. It will be noted that the strip
2 usually lies against the body of the wearer with
the socket formed by the ?ap 4 at the top.
5°
A further embodiment of the invention is
shown in Figure 6, wherein the socket member
consists of the two ?at strips l' and 2’ which
instead of being held in spaced apart relation
by a rivet at the centre are connected at the
2
2,076,016
ends by means of rivets l1 and 18, one of which,
for example, the top rivet l1 engages in an elon
gated slot IS in one of the strips so as to allow
for the relative longitudinal movement between
the strips when a bending action is applied to the
fastener. These rivets constitute the sockets into
which the tongues on the interlocking strip are
engaged. To enable the strips I’ and 2' to be
assembled, the elongated slot I 9 is enlarged at
10 the inner end.
I claim:—-
