wearer as indicated by the arrow 44 in Fig. 3.
Said belt also comprises side panels 46 and 48

the lower edge of said belt portion is provided

Belt 40 is attached to the girdle at the inner
side of front panel l2 by. stitching the side edge
of one side panel, here shown as ‘panel 46, by the
seam 52' by whichthe side panel I4 is attached to
. the front panel
I2 at one side thereof.

'1 suitable fabric which is preferably.non-stretchable ' an inelastic fabric strip 54 carrying hooks 56 for
engagement with eyes 58 carried by an inelastic 50
‘l elastic transversely, or in a circumferential di *fabric strip 60. Said strip 60 is stitched to an

attached at their ends to the bottom of belt por

respectively. Garter tabs 69 are stitched to the
lower edge of rear panel l8.
It will be observed that when the wearer ad
justs the girdle on her body, before the fastener
34 is closed,‘the hooks on the belt are engaged
with the eyes on strip 60 which is attached to flap
B2. In this manner the front panel l2 and the
side panel [6 are drawn together and disposed
with their edges close to each other so‘that the
slider 35 of the slide fastener 34 may be operated ,
may be made. Thus, for example, while I have
described the central portion 1S2 of belt 40 as elas
tic, which is a preferred feature of the invention,
said section may be composed of inelastic fabric,
although it is preferred that the side sections 7 5
' 46 and 48 have elasticity in atransverse direction‘
as above described. Accordingly, in view of the
changes which may be made in the construction
herein shown, I do not wish to be limited precisely
thereto, except as may be required by the ap 1O
pended claim considered with‘ reference to the
prior art.
