1 Claim. (01. 2-42)
This invention relates to an improved brassiére when the garment is applied to the body. Shoul
construction and has for a particular object the der straps 2| and 22 equipped, if desired, with
application of a gentle force to the busts of the
wearer both in an upward direction and out
6 wardly. In this way there is provided not only
a desirable uplift effect but also a tendency to
separate the busts.
Another object of the invention has been to
provide a brassiere which is at the same time
10 more comfortable and more enhancing to the
?gure of the wearer in that it provides elastic
means for urging the busts apart.
Other objects and advantages of the inven
tion will appear from a detailed description of
an illustrative form of the same which will now
be given in conjunction with the accompanying
drawing, in which:
Now, for the purpose of yieldingly urging the
busts apart and simultaneously imparting an
uplift effect, there is provided a pair of elastic
bands 24 and 25 of suitable, soft, ?exible and
relatively narrow construction. The two bands
may conveniently be fastened at their upper ends
to the upper portion of the line of stitching I2,
at a point about in line with the centers of the
pockets, and they extend downwardly and out
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken along the
wardly from this point in the form of an in
verted V. In the preferred construction, as il
lustrated, the bands are disposed at between 30°
and 45° to the horizontal. Band 24 is secured at
its lower end to about the center of the lower
edge of the bust pocket l5 while the lower end of
line 3—3 of Figure 2.
Referring now to the drawing, the improved
band 25 issimilarly secured to the center of the
lower edge of the bust pocket [6. For this pur
Figure 1 is a view illustrating the improved
brassiere as applied to the body of a wearer.
Figure 2 is an enlarged view of the inside of
the garment when opened out, and
25 garment is in the form of a body-encircling mem
ber which may most conveniently consist of two
sections l0 and H, formed, preferably, of any
suitable non-elastic material, such as poplin,
lace, silk, crepe, or the like, and joined by stitch
3 O ing along the median line l2. If desired, how
ever, the main body of the garment may be
formed as a single unitary member or it may be
formed of more than two sections, depending
upon the particular requirements. The lower
35 edges of both sections are preferably bound by
a non-elastic tape l3 suitably stitched to the
main fabric and arranged to encircle the body of
the wearer beneath the busts. If desired, this
lower portion of the garment may be formed as a
40 band of substantial width adapted to con?ne the
portions of the body beneath the busts.
The upper edges of the sections I0 and II are
similarly preferably bound by a tape 14 which
length-adjusting means 23 and extending from
the high points of the pockets I5 and [6, re
spectively, to the extremities of the same sec- 5_
tions, assist in retaining the garment on the
may appropriately be of a narrow lace construc
tion, although other forms of non-elastic tapes
might be utilized. These upper edges are so
shaped as to provide a pair of bust pockets l5
and I6 formed with a suitable fullness to receive
50 the busts. Darts I‘! may be provided to effect the
desired shaping. The extremities of the sec
tions 10 and II may have elastic tapes l8 and
I9, respectively, secured thereto and a fastening
member 20 of any appropriate form may be
55 employed to fasten the elastic bands together
pose the lower ends of the elastic bands may con
veniently be inserted between the sections I0
and II, respectively, and the tape l3, and may
be held by the stitching which secures the tape
to the sections. Intermediate their ends the two
bands 24 and 25 are free of the sections l0 and
H and, therefore, capable of stretching as de
sired. The length of the bands is such as to
bring about a slight puckering of the inner por
tions of the pockets and a slight upward curva
ture of the lower edge of the garment at the 3,5
points where the bands are attached thereto.
This curvature of the lower edge is, of course,
eliminated as the garment is applied to the body
and at the same time the bands 24 and 25 will
be tensioned slightly and the puckering removed.
It will be appreciated that the elastic bands
24 and 25 under a slight tension and diagonally
disposed will impart both an upward and out
ward, light pressure to the busts and thus ac
complish simultaneously the desired uplift and
separating effects.
While an illustrative form of brassiere em
bodying the invention has been disclosed in con
siderable detail, it will be'understood that nu
merous changes may be made without departing
from the general principles and scope of the in
vention. The main body portion of the brassiere
may assume a variety of different forms and may
be either wide or narrow, from top to bottom, at 55
the front, depending primarily upon the char
acter of the ?gure to which it is to be applied.
The principal feature of the garment, in what
ever form it may be constructed, is the provision
of freely suspended, lightly tensioned, elastic
bands extending upwardly between the busts and
arranged to engage and urge them gently apart.
By disposing these bands diagonally, in the man
ner shown and explained, they tend to lift the
busts as well as urge them apart.
The terms and expressions used in the fore
going are to be regarded as terms of descrip
tion and not of limitation.
What I claim is:
A brassiere comprising a body encircling mem
ber having a pair of bust pockets inter-con
nected by non-elastic fabric, and an elastic band
extending freely in a diagonal direction across 5
the lower portion of each pocket, each of said
bands having one end thereof secured at a point
between said pockets and the other end secured
at a lower point along substantially the vertical
center-line of the related pocket, the length of 10
‘ each of such bands being such as to cause pucker
ing of the super-posed portions of the pockets.
