Charles H. Schopbach, Aurora, 111., assignor to
International Corset Company, Aurora, 111., a
corporation of Illinois
Application October 1, 1936, Serial No. 103,491
6 Claims. (Cl. 2-30)
This invention relates to foundation garments nected together by lacings I3. A panel ‘Ill of
laterally stretchable elastic is stitched longitu
comprising corsets and brassieres.
The main object of the invention is to» provide
a garment which will give maximum comfort to
6 the wearer and in which the brassiére is self
adjusting.
In combination garments of the character de
scribed, there is a predetermined relation between
the measurements of the waistline of the corset
10 and brassiére and the bust of the brassiere, and,
therefore, such garments are not adaptableto
all ?gures, and while means are usually provided
for adjusting the width of the corset, no ade
quate provision has heretofore been made for
1 automatic adjustment of the brassiere to the
?gure of the wearer and to compensate for ad
justments which may be made in the corset.
In the garment herein shown and described
the brassiere is automatically adjustable to pro
vide
variations in the predetermined waist and
20
bust measurements for which the garment was
designed.
,
Another object of the invention is to provide
means in the brassiere for controlling the dia
25 phragm and properly supporting the breasts of
the wearer.
Another object is to provide improved means
for attaching the brassiere to the corset.
In the drawing:
30. _
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a foundation gar
ment embodying my invention, the lower part of
the corset being broken away.
.
Fig. 2 is .a fragmentary view of the waistline
portion of the garment shown in Fig. 1, with the
35 I brassiere turned upwardly at the front to dis
close the means for attaching it to the corset.
The embodiment of the invention shown in
the drawing comprises a front lace corset pro~
vided with a lacing-concealing panel, constructed
40 as described in United States Letters Patent No.
2,013,190 of September 3, 1935, but the present
invention may be embodied in a garment having
a front or back lace corset or a non-laced corset
having elastic panels, or any other suitable con
45 struction.
The corset shown consists of side panels I0, I0,
front panels II, II, and side back panels I2, I2.
The side back panels I2 and the center back (not
shown) ,may extend to or above the waistline of
50 the corset. If they extend above the waistline,
as shown, they may constitute part of the bras
siére, but of course the brassiére may be made
of separate pieces, preferably secured to the corset
at the back.
The panels II, II are non-elastic and are con
55
dinally to one panel II to overlie the lacings I3,
and at its free longitudinal edge is provided with
fasteners I5 which cooperate with fasteners on
the other panel II for retaining the panel I4 in
place. A slide member I6 is provided for engag~
ing and disengaging the fasteners.
The brassiére of the present embodiment com
prises the upper portions ll of the side back
panels I2, I2, a back (not shown) and a front
section stitched to the part I‘! of one panel I2
and detachably secured by hooks and eyes I8 to
the part II of the other panel I2. Thesides
and back of the brassiere are non-elastic. Said
front section comprises two side members I9 of
non-elastic material, and a center front panel 20
of laterally elastic material. The panel 20 is
narrower at its upper end thanv in the lower por~
tion. The side members I9 are shorter than the 20
panel 20 and are stitched at 2| to opposite sides
of the lower portion of the panel 20. Breast
pieces 22, 22, suitably shaped, are stitched at 23
to the upper edges of the members I9, I9, and
to the upper side margins of the elastic panel 20.
A strip of elastic 24 is folded to V-form and
stitched at 25 to the brassiere members I9. A
hook 26 on the strip 24 engages an eyelet 21 in
the corset body. The strip 213, hook 26 and eyelet
21 are concealed by the brassiére and they do 30
not interfere with the elasticity of the panel 20.
Shoulder straps are indicated at 28.
When the invention is embodied in a combi
nation corset and bras'siére, the front of the bras
siére is preferably detached from the corset, as 35
shown. The invention may be embodied in cor
sets and brassiéres in which the center and side
back members are not integral as herein shown.
The panel 20 of the brassiére, in combination
with its associated parts, exerts diaphragm and
bust control and enables the garment to be worn
with comfort by a person whose waistline and
bust measurements vary from the predetermined
measurements from which the garment was de
signed. The brassiere automatically adjusts it
self to adjustments which may be made in the
corset by means of the lacings or otherwise. The
variation in the width of the panel 20 provides
greater elasticity and easier stretchability in the
lower portion than in the upper. This has been
carefully designed to meet practical requirements
resulting in variations in waistline and bust meas~
urements, without sacri?ce of the supporting and
controlling functions of the brassiere.
Changes may be made in details of construc- 55

invention and I do not intend to be limited to
the exact form shown and described, except as
set forth in the appended claims.
