1 Claim. (Cl. 2-237)
The invention relates to a waistband fastener
for under-garments and more especially to a re
silient strap fastener for waistbands of under
The primary object of the invention is the pro
vision of a fastener of this character, wherein
through the use of a resilient strap carried by a
waistband of an under-garment the said waist
band can be conveniently fastened and will au
10 tomatically adjust itself to the body of the wearer
of the garment at the waist line and will eliminate
discomfort to such wearer and avoid the breaking
away of fasteners, as, for example, buttons when
engaged in button holes resultant from excessive
strain thereon, particularly when the abdomen of
the wearer becomes distended.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a fastener of this character, wherein button
fasteners or the like as conventionally employed
ends being stitched or otherwise fastened as at
8 to the waistband 5 with the intermediate por
tion of such strap free of the said waistband and
carried by this strap at the proper location is a
button 9 adapted for engagement with a com
panion button hole I0 provided in the waistband
‘ 5 for the fastening of the front opening 6 closed.
The series of straps l are located at one end of
the waistband 5 next to the front opening 6 al
though the same may be otherwise located and
the straps of this series are arranged in substan
tially parallel relation to each other and spaced
the required distance from one another so that
the buttons 9 as carried thereby will be properly
located with respect to the button holes Ill com
panions thereto.

by a person when strain occurs at the waistband
5 the straps ‘I yield or give in accordance with
the strain and at the same time the garment A
will be snugly fastened at the waist line of a wear
er about the same and the waistband of the gar
sion of a fastener of this character, which is sim
ment will be self-adjustable, the straps l yielding
with under-garments will be yieldably carried at
the waistband of such garment to assure ?rm

of the garment and a snug ?tting thereof at the
thereof next to the front opening 6, in this in
stance, is a series of elastic straps ‘I, each at its
ple in construction, thoroughly reliable and effi
cient in its operation, readily and easily applied
to a garment, strong, durable, self-adjusting, and
30 inexpensive to manufacture.
With these and other objects in View, the in
vention consists in the features of construction,
combination and arrangement of parts as will be
“ hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in
the accompanying drawing, which discloses the
preferred embodiment of the invention and
pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of an under-gar
40 ment showing the fastener constructed in accord
ance with the invention applied thereto, in this
instance, there being three fasteners, one in fas
tening position and the others free.
Figure 2 is a top edge view of the waistband of
the garment showing the fastener in fastening
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 showing
the fastener yieldably extended.
Similar reference characters indicate corre
sponding parts throughout the several views in
the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, A designates
generally a body garment, in this instance, repre
senting a pair of shorts which is the present-day
type of men’s under-garments and is formed with
the waistband 5, this garment being created with
the front opening 6 carried through the waistband
on the distending of the abdomen and thus re
lieving discomfort to the wearer.
In lieu of the buttons 9 and the button holes
other fasteners may be employed in association 30
with the yieldable straps l, the latter being in
the form of elastic bands and this is contem
plated within the scope of the invention.
Each strap 7 is normally contracted and in this .
condition fastened to the waistband 5 so that it
will be smooth and lying ?at against the same and
when strain is exerted on the button 9 the said
strap becomes extended from the position shown
in Figure 2 to the position shown in Figure 3 of
the drawing.
What is claimed is:
In combination with a nether garment having
a waistband and inner and outer fore ?aps to
close the fly opening thereof, an elastic strap ly
ing against the face of the band with its longer di
mension disposed in the direction of the periphery
of the band, the strap being carried by the band
on the inner flap of the garment but being se
cured to the band only at the extremities of the
strap, and a fastener secured to the outer face
of the strap at an intermediate point in the length
thereof, the outer flap of the garment having the
waistband portion thereof formed with means to
engage said fastener, whereby yielding of the ’
waistband to body distension applies a stress to
the strap ?rst to but one section thereof and
later to both sections of the same.
5 as is conventional.
Joined with the waistband 5 at the outside
