Application June 9, 1936, Serial No. 84,376
1 Claim;
The present invention has to do with the ‘art
of ?tting of dresses and underthings, such as
slips, lingerie, and foundations of different sorts,
primarily for use in dress and like ?tting shops
5-‘ catering to women. The practice which is in
tended to be improved in the above' art affects
ordinary ?tting operations of dresses, founda
tions, and the like.
It is customary in dress-?tting shops at the
10 present time for dresses and similar garments
to be tried on, preliminary to their acceptance
and purchase, by the prospective customer. Now
dresses and other ?ne garments and foundations
are necessarily tried on a great many different
15 persons incident to the sales thereof. The pres
ent-day mode of dressing a woman is to wear as
few and as scanty clothes as possible, and gowns
and other similar garments are daily being tried
on almost nude bodies in many shops, this de
00 pending very largely upon the extent to which
the particular person being ?tted adheres to the
custom of using more or less undergarments.
It is known to those engaged in the business
(Cl. 2-46)
on such person.
The ?tting appliance of the
invention comprises a body covering preferably
made of transparent material of ?esh-like color,
so that when the appliance is placed on the body V
of a prospective customer, after the dress or other 5 ‘
outer garments of the customer have been re
moved, the said appliance'will perform several
It will constitute a body covering giving the
approximate ?esh-color appearance of the body
beneath the garment later to be placed there
The appliance additionally will be a sterilized
covering and will therefore prevent all possibility
of the dress, or other garment ?tted thereover, 15
being contaminated in any way by the body or
person of one being ?tted.
Again, the body covering of the invention is
an appliance which is made of a material pref
erably of ?nest rubberized silk, which has a tend- 20
ency, because of the body ?tting structure of the
covering, to- adhere closely to the person of the
one being ?tted with the outer garment. On this
of operating dress and other garment ?tting
account, therefore, the tendency of the covering
shops, that many persons who are customers,
will be to eliminate wrinkling lines on the person
and afford a better ?tting action on the part
engaged in the selection of garments to pur
chase, have offensive body odors, often soiled un
derwear, and, in certain instances, such persons
are af?icted with skin diseases. Obviously, when
30 garments have been tried on persons who may
have offensive body odors, or skin diseases, or
other similar distasteful body conditions, the
garments may become soiled, or may take up
such offensive odors, powder marks, or the like.
These things are often noticeable to the cus
tomer, and, moreover, they become. obnoxious
to the ?tter of the garments working in the shop.
Not only is the above true, but, in the course of
time, a garment tried on many times on differ
40 ent persons becomes so soiled or odoriferous that
it has to be sent to the cleaner for renovation, or
sometimes the garments are sold as seconds, in
both instances resulting in a loss of pro?t to the
shop owner, as well as loss of display time, in
of the outer garment with which the said person
is to be ?tted as such garment will freely slide
over the covering.
It is contemplated that the material of the
appliance or body covering of the invention shall
be sterilized after each use thereof, by being
placed in a chemical sterilizer, the foregoing af
fording positive protection against the disad
vantageous conditions that prevail at the present 35
