(Cl. 2-—42) E is opposed by downward and outward pulls due This invention relates to bust supports of bras sieres. An object of the invention is, the pro- ‘ to the lower fastening straps F and G respectively, the tension in the supports being taken vision of a brassiere which, while a?ording ade quate and correct support, may be adapted by substantially along the straight of the material, 5 rearrangement of the fastening straps for wear 1. e. along lines crossing diagonally between the ' breasts. The supports for this reason will not with various types of dress, more especially eve ning dresses which have a wide and deep opening become deformed to an appreciable extent no matter how the pulls are varied by the wearer's at the back or at the sides. ~ This and other objects are achieved according movements. The breadth of the supports is such that the 10 10 to the present invention by providing in a bras siere two breast supporting parts of a size and outer edges will not extend further than about shape suitable for enclosing the breasts but not midway around the wearer’s side so that they extending laterally more than about midway will not be visible with a dress which is open at the sides. around the wearer’s sides, shoulder straps at The shoulder strap E is shown detachable from II 15 tached to the upper outer corners of the sup ports and arranged so that they may be fastened the support B by means of a buckle of any suit in a variety of ways but so as to produce a lift upon the breast supports and lower fastening 'straps attached to the lower outer corners of the 20 supports and adapted to be secured to a lower garment in such a way that they produce a down ward and outward pull upon the breast supports opposing the lift of the opposite shoulder straps. The supports are cut or otherwise arranged so 2GI that they are relatively inextensible along the lines of pull in the garment so that the supports shall not be appreciably deformed, whatever po sition may be assumed by the wearer. The invention will be more readily understood by reference to the accompanying drawings which show a preferred form of construction. In these drawings:— Fig. 1 is a view of the brassiere laid out ?at. Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 5 illustrate different arrange 35 ments of the fastening straps (usually elastic) to adapt the garment for wear with different types of dress. In these ?gures the lower garment, such as a body belt or corset is omitted. Fig. 6 illustrates the brassiere in use, with the 40 fastening straps arranged as in Fig. 2. Fig.7 shows a rear view of a modi?cation. able type. The support D may or may not be similarly detachable. As illustrated in Figs. 2 and 6 the shoulder straps D and E pass over the shoulders and more or less vertically downwards for attachment to loo'ps H secured to a lower garment and the lower straps F and G are attached to the same loops, so providing a wide and deep opening at the back, which will keep the straps invisible when worn “ with an evening dress having a deep open back. In Fig. 8 the shoulder straps D and E are shown - crossed at the back and attachable to the oppo site loops H. * In Fig. 4 the shoulder strap E has been de- a tached and the strap D arranged to pass around the wearer’s neck to the upper outer corner of the support B, for wear with the type of dress in which the front of the dress is supported by a band of the dress material passed around the a wearer’s neck. - . . A modi?cation of the last arrangement is shown in Fig. 5, intended for wear with a dress in which the band of material passing around the neck is connected to the bottom of the back opening 40 of the dress. In this case theshouider strap E has been looped over the strap D and brought In these drawings A and B indicate breast sup ports or pockets which are' cut from the material ' down for fastening to a loop H1 on the belt or and then shaped, by means of the seams or darts corset.

' The result of this is that in wear, with inforcement along the lines of pull. It will be understood that the invention is not the fastening straps attached in any of the ways illustrated, the lift due to shoulder straps D and con?ned to the precise shape of the supports A u parallel to the bottom edges of the supports and 50 also from the upper outer corners of the supports to a point midway between the breasts on, the 2 and B illustrated in the drawings “nor to the identical arrangement of straps shown, so long as the straps produce tension in the required di rections and the supports are relatively inex tensible along the lines of pull. The straps on either side of the garment may, for instance, be made in one piece, passing through a channel in the edge of the support, the strap being sewn to the support at the top and 10 bottom corners thereof with the elastic extended so that when not in use the edges of thegarment will be puckered but will be drawn straight when the garment is put on. ~ What I claim is: 15 1. A brassiere constructed and arranged for use in combination with a lower garment having a belt-like portion surrounding the waist of the wearer, said brassiere comprising a pair of shaped, woven fabric breast supports of generally quad so rilateral form joined together along their inner and shortest edges, the fabric of the supports being arranged with the straight of the goods by said connecting means at their lower ends to said belt-like portion to act in conjunction with the upper pair of straps to tension the supports along the straight of the goods and therefore along their lines of least stretch. 2.
