Referring to the drawings, the numeral l desig nates generally the body of a tubular structure preferably closed at the bottom 2, and provided 50 with an opening 3 at the top and preferably two side openings 4 and 5 located near the top. The top edge 6 of the tube is hemmed and shirred onto a circular elastic band 1 which normally maintains the opening 3 in an almost completely 55 closed condition. If desired a drawstring or other a s The modi?ed accessory shown? in Fig. 5 is made by doubling the fabric |9_, Fig. 7, so that the? back 20 is longer than thev'front' 2|.

In making the accessory as described above an enlargement 33 is created in the upper 55 2 2,106,664 part of the back which is of advantage in that the fullness of the back permits the bather to It will be noted that no metal or other hard parts are used in the construction of the acces bend over when reaching for articles of wear on sory; it is therefore entirely ?exible and may, if desired, be readily folded for insertion in a suitable container. I claim: 1. A bathing accessory comprising a tubular the beach without restraint. In the modi?cation presented here the means for adapting the beach accessory for use as a carrying bag consists of a drawstring 34 passing through several loops 35 stitched laterally around the accessory, as shown in Fig. 5. The carrying 10 bag is formed by pushing the upper part of the 15 accessory inwardly and downwardly on a line with the drawstring 34. Pulling the ends of the drawstring taut will completely close the opening body having openings at the top, bottom and sides, said top opening being of suf?cient width of the formed bag. to admit a human body and means for contract ? In using the bathing accessory, the elastic band 1 is'?rst expanded to its fullest extent to per mit the bather to step into it and pull it up until the edge 6 is on a level with the neck when the elastic band ?I is allowed to close as much 20 as possible about the neck of the bather. Now, bythrusting the arms through the side openings ing'the top opening. 15 3. A bathing accessory comprisinga tubular body having openings at the top, bottom and sides, said sides of sui?cient width to allow any article of clothing to be drawn in or out of ac cessory, means for contracting the top opening, 4 and 5 the bather can reach out for various and means for ?contracting the side openings. 4. A bathing accessory comprising a tubular articles previously conveniently located and then, reinserting the arms, make the desired change body having openings at the top, bottom and sides, said top opening being of su?icient width is put on by slipping over the head and shoul to admit a human body and expansible means 2:5 associated with each of the openings for inde 25 of clothing. When dealing with an article which ders, the edge 6 is merely slipped over the head of the bather, thus permitting the article to be put on in the customary? manner. Or, if desired 30 the edge 6 may be slipped under the armpits, the garment placed over the head and the arms slipped through the sleeves when the edge 6 can be returned to its original position around the neck. The accessory should, of course, be su?i .35 ciently long to extend above and fully enclose the head of the bather when necessary. It should also have sui?cient width so that the de sired changes of clothing can be made in com fort. It will be apparent that the bathing ac 40 cessory described here affords as great a degree of privacy as is obtainable with any of the more pendently maintaining them in normal con tracted condition. 5. A bathing accessory comprising a tubular body, open at the top, said top opening being 30 of su?icient width to admit a human body and means for contracting the top opening. 6. A bathing accessory comprising a tubular body closed at the bottom and provided with openings at the top and vsides, said top opening being of sufficient width to admit a human body and means for contracting the top opening.

It may also serve as a storage place for clothes to keep out the sand or water of the beach. By folding the accessory in the manner shown in Fig. 3, as previ ously noted, it may be used as a bag for trans porting articles to and from the beach. The bathing accessory can be made of almost any fabric which is suf?ciently opaque but pref erably the material should be light in weight and waterproof. . expansible means for maintaining the openings in normal contracted condition, and means for 50 covering the side openings. 9.
