Franklin '(Jlfx'atfielrl,` Minneapolis, Minn., assigner,
by mcsne assignments, to Munsingwear, Inc.,
Minneapolis, Minn., a corporation of Delaware
' Application February 4, 1935, Serial No. 4,910 `
YY4 clams> (ci. :zwem
`This invention relates to improvements in a
garment of the corset or girdle type in which re»
movable bones are provided and it is the object
of- the invention 'to provide the garmentV with
5". means for covering the exposed portions of the
removable bones so as to protect the wearer>
against being pinched between the garment and
the exposed part of the bone.`
More particularly stated, the object of the in
1'01 vention is to‘provide a shield which normally
overlies the exposed parts of the bones of such
garments as corsets and girdles but which shield,
being flexible, can be displaced or pulled aside to
give access. to the bones for removal.
15
With the foregoing object in mind, I have il
lustrated in the accompanying drawing a form
of garment embodying my invention. It is to be
understood, however, that I do not limit myself
to the particular form of garment shown, nor do
20 I limit myself to the particular form of bone
protecting shield. It will be obvious to those
skilled in the art that my invention may be em
bodied in different forms in any type of gar
ment of this general character.
In the drawing
25
Figure 1 is a front view of the inside of a garw
ment showing my invention applied thereto;
Figure 2 is a fragmentary front view of the
garment similar to Figure l with the shield or
30 «protecting member cut away to show the arrange
ment of the bones; and
,
Figure 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Figure l.
Referring now to the drawing, reference num»
eral ID indicates generally the bodyl portion of
35 a garment to which my invention is applied. This
garment may be of any of the well known forms
now available upon the market; that is to say
it may be made of all elastic material or partly
elastic and partly inelastic; it may be made
40 long or short, that is to say it may be of the
girdle type or a full length corset; and it may
be made in the form of a seamless tube or in sec
tions suitably secured together.
Reference numeral Il indicates. garter tabs of
45 any well known construction which may be ap
plied to the garment.
It is to be understood,
however, that these are not essential because my
invention, to be hereafter more fully described, is,
of course, applicable to the type of girdle which
50 is not provided with garter tabs and which is.
worn by a person when the stockings are rolled.
Reference character I2 indicates an insert of
one-way stretch material which is located in the
front of the garment and, as shown, extends from
By one-way
55 the top to the bottom thereof.
stretch material, I mean such material as, in
this case, stretches only up and down whereas
the body portion of the garment is, in this-case,
made of so called two-way stretch material, being
material which stretches both vertically and hori‘
zontally. While the insert is shown to extend
the full length of the garment, it is obvious that
it need not be of such length‘but mayterminate
at any intermediate point in the length of the
garment.
.
`Reference character M indicates bonepockets
which are provided in the front of the garment
and in the said insert of one-Way stretch ma
terial. The formation of these bone pockets is
a matter which is well known to those skilled 15
in the art and no further description thereof
is necessary. It is to be observed, especially from
Figure 2, that the bone pockets are cut away, or
discontinuous, as at the point I5 so that the
bones I5 are exposed for a certain part of their 20
length. This arrangement is such that the ex
posed parts of the bones I6 may be grasped for
removal of the bones from the pocket when de
sired, as when the garment is being laundered.
Reference character Il indicates a shield mem 25
ber which I have provided and which covers the
exposed parts or sections of the bones I6. This
member is suitably secured as by stitching I8 to
the edges of the insert I2 and is otherwise loose
or detached from the garment. The said shield 30
Il may be made of any suitable material whether
elastic or inelastic because, being secured in the
manner shown, the nature of the material of the
shield will not interfere with the proper stretch
ing of the garment to conform to the figure and 35
position of the wearer. Being loose from the rest
of the garment, the said shield I'I can be pulled
aside so as to make the exposed parts of the
bones I6 accessible for Withdrawal.
It will now be apparent to those skilled in the 40
art that I have provided a device which will suc
cessfully cover the exposed parts of the remov
able bones in corsets and other garments of that
type. It is found in actual use that often the
exposed parts of the bones being next to the‘skin
of the wearer, the body is sometimes pinched
between the bones and the garment and the
shield or protecting member of my invention will
prevent this.
My invention provides a neat and effective
shield for the exposed parts of the bones which
is of smooth appearance, practical in construc
tion and adds but slightly to the cost of the
garment._

I claim as my invention:
1. A garment of the character described in
cluding a body portion having therein an insert
arranged at the middle front portion of the body,
a pair of longitudinally extending bone pockets
and bones therein carried by the insert, and ar
ranged in the upper part only of the insert, one
at each side of the midline of the insert, each
pocket being cut away intermediately to expose a
10 part of the bone, and a shield transverse to and
covering the exposed parts of the bones and ias
tened only by opposite ends to said insert at points
laterally of the bones.
2. A garment of the character described in
15 cluding a body portion, having therein an insert
arranged at the middle front portion of the body,
a pair of longitudinally extending bone pockets
and bones therein carried by the insert and ar
ranged in. the upper part only of the insert, one
20 at each side of the midline of the insert, each
pocket being cut away intermediately to expose
a part of the bone, and a shield transverse to and
covering the exposed parts of the bones and fas
tened only by op-posite ends to said insert at
25 points laterally of the bones, the middle part of
the shield being narrower than the end portions
to- facilitate grasping and access to- the exposed
portions of the bones when the shield is pulled
outwardly.

3. A garment of the character described in
cluding a body portion made of two-way stretch
material having therein an insert of one-wavy
stretch material arranged at the middle front
portion of the body, and stretchable only length
Wise, a pair of longitudinally extending bone
pockets and bones therein carried by the insert
and arranged in the upper part only of the in
sert, one at each side of the midline of the in
sert, each pocket being cut away intermediately
to expose a part of they bone, and a shield trans
verse to and covering the exposed parts of the
bones and fastened only by opposite ends to said
insert at points laterally of the bones.
4. A garment of the character described in
cluding a body portion made of two-way stretch
material arranged at the middle front portion 15
of the body, and stretchable only lengthwise, a
pair of longitudinally extending bone pockets and
bones therein carried by the insert and arranged
in the upper part only of the insert, one at each
side of the midline of the insert, each pocket 20
being cut away intermediately to expose a part of
the bone, and a shield transversely to and cover
ing the exposed parts of the bones and fastened
only by opposite ends to said insert at points
laterally of the bones, the middle part of the 25
shield being narrower than the end portions to
facilitate grasping and access to the exposed por
tions of the bones, when the shield is pulled out
wardly.
