BATHING SUIT '
David Watinsky, Mount Vernon, N. Y.
Application August 19, 1937, 'Serial No.- 159,857
6 Claims. (01. 2-67)
This invention relates to improvements in bath
ing suits and has for a principal object the pro
vision of a bathing suit of the “dressmaker type”
comprised of a bodice and skirt preferably in one
5 piece, an undershirt forming a lining for said
bodice, and a pair of “panties” detachably secured
to said undershirt.
Another object of the invention is the provision,
in a bathing suit of the “dressmaker type” having
10 an undershirt forming a lining for the bodice of
the dress, of a reinforcing member secured to said
undershirt portion to form therewith a brassiére,
said member extending downwardly and being
faced with one row of “zipper” fasteners, and the
15 provision of a pair of “panties” provided with a
like row of “zipper” fasteners adapted to be placed
in cooperative relation with or removed from co
operative relation with said ?rst row of fasteners
thereby eliminating the necessity of providing
20 other openings in the suit for the purpose of in
gress or egress. The suit and the panties are
“zipped” apart and put on separately after which
they may again be “zipped” together.
A further object of the invention is the pro
vision, in bathing suits of the character described,
of panties made up, in part, of rubber (such as
“lastex”), and due to the perishable nature of
such materials as compared to the materials in
the remainder of the suit, such panties may read
30 ily be replaced several times before the suit proper
is discarded.
Still another object of the invention is the pro
vision of a brassiere and of “panties” adapted to
be placed in quickly detachable cooperative re
lation with each other on a wearer’s body, the
junction member being permanently secured to
said brassiére and detachably secured to said
“panties”.

Other objects will be obvious to those skilled in
‘ the art.
Referring now to the drawing
Figure 1 is a front view of the new and im
proved bathing suit;
45
,
Figure 2 is a back view of the suit shown in
Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a front view of the suit shown in
Figure 1 with a portion of the front broken away
to show the “panties” detached; and
50
Figure 4 is a vertical medial section of the
bathing suit shown in Figure 1.
In describing the new and improved bathing
suit, the main or outer garment will be termed a
“dress”; the inner garment forming a lining for
55 the bodice of the dress will be termed an “under
shirt”; and the detachable drawers portion of I
the suit will be termed “pants”.
'
Referring to the drawing, the dress generally
designated by the numeral l0 consists of a bodice
portion II and a skirt portion l2. Between the.
arm-holes l3 and [4, respectively, and the neck
opening- Hi, the narrowest portions I6 and N form
in effect shoulder straps. The neck-opening in
the back may be cut low, if desired, at [8 so that
a portion of the wearer’s back may be exposed.
Suitable belt strings l9 and 20 are secured to the
dress on opposite sides thereof and may be tied
in a bow at the rear, as indicated in dotted lines
at 2|. Within the bodice ll an undershirt 22
is provided. This undershirt is provided vwith
arm and neck openings matching the arm-holes
i 3 and l4<ofv the suit and the neck-openings l5
and I8., The undershirt 22 is- preferably stitched
to the bodice along the outlines of the
arm and neck openings and preferably along the
waist-line 23 across the back of the bodice.
The front portion of the shirt has‘ secured
thereto. by stitching, indicated at 24, a reinforc
ing member 25. The reinforcing member 25 may
be of any desired shape, but in the preferred em
bodiment of the invention it is pentagonal form.
In the preferred embodiment one apex of the
pentagon joins the front‘ neck opening l5 at the
point indicated by the numeral 26. ' This rein
forcing member strengthens the undershirt in
front and forms in elfect a brassiere.‘
.
The lower edge of the reinforcing member 25,
as may be seen in Figure 3, has secured thereto a
row 21 of fasteners of the “zipper” type, the func
tion of which will presently be described.
The back of the suit may be provided with a
35
placket 28 extending from the opening 18 down
wardly to a point below the waist, and suitable
buttons 29 or other fastening devices may be pro
vided for opening and closing the placket 28.
The “panties” 30 may be made of any suitable
material; however, in the preferred embodiment
of the invention the “panties” are made of mate
rials which include rubber or the like, a typical
example of which is known on the market as
“Lastex”.
It has also been found preferable in using such
materials for “panties” to have the grain or the
stretch of the material extend laterally so that
“panties” of a given length may fit a plurality of
sizes of wearers. The waist 3| of the “panties”
may be ?nished off with a suitable hem or binder
which may also be stretchable.
The waist 3| may also have secured thereto in
front, a row 32 of fasteners similar to the 55

along the outlines of said openings and along the
actuator member 33 of the fastener preferably

other side, thereby allowing said dress to hang
free in front, a polygonal reinforcing member
secured to the front portion of said undershirt
row 21 and adapted to be placed in cooperative
relation with the fasteners in the row 21.
In placing the fastener members in cooperative
relation with each other, a pilot member 34 at one
end of the row 21 is inserted into an opening in
the member 33 provided for the purpose, thereby
facilitating the operation of securing the “pan
10 ties” to the suit.
In some models the placket 28 may be omitted
and in place thereof suitable trimmings may be
provided, in which case the suit may be put on
and taken off over the wearer’s head, the “pan
15 ties” having previously been detached.
In Figure 4, the brassiere portion of the suit is
shown in cooperative relation with the “panties”
30, the “panties” being detachably secured to the
reinforcing member 25, and the member 25 being
20 permanently secured. by stitching, to the brassi
ere portion of the suit. This arrangement is not
only applicable to bathing suits, but may be used
for ordinary Wear and particularly for dance
sets in which case the shoulder straps l6 and I‘!
25 would be substantially narrowed and the sides
of the brassiere would also be substantially nar
rowed and arranged to encircle the body.
Although a preferred embodiment of the in
vention is herein shown and described, it is ob
30 vious that many other embodiments of the in
vention may be made without departing from
the spirit of the invention as. set forth in the an
nexed claims.
