Application July 16, 1936, Serial No. 90,963
1 Claim. (01. 2-233)
This invention relates to a leg-straightening
attachment.
Filling masses with gently sloping contours
secured to an understocking are known for im
5 proving the appearance of crooked and deformed
legs. These include constructions wherein the
understocking is constructed in bag-shape to per
mit of easy cleaning of the stocking. These
known attachments are, however, open to the
10 objection that the ?lling mass shrinks on be
coming wet.
In order to overcome this objection, the at
tachment according to the invention comprises
an outer cover and two layers of horse-hair fab
15 ric withthe hairs in one layer at right angles
to those in the other and between the layers par
allel vertical staves are embedded, these staves
. gradually becoming shorter from the front to
wards the rear side of the leg. Under the inner
20 horse-hair fabric layer a lining of soft leather is
fixed in the form of a pocket open at the top and
with its lower end portion unattached to the
outer cover. One end of an elastic loop designed
to be slipped under the foot, is connected to this
When the attachment
is worn, ?lling pads can be slipped into the upper
26 unattached end portion.
pocket aperture.
An embodiment of the invention is illustrated
by way of example in the accompanying drawing
30
in which:—
I
Fig. 1 shows the attachment in side elevation
in position on a leg.
Fig. 2 is a rear elevation of the leg with the
35
attachment in vertical section.
Fig. 3 shows a pad in elevation; and
Fig. 4 is an inner elevation of the attachment
on a larger scale.
The outer cover I of the attachment prefer
ably is made of a flesh-coloured material which
40 does not easily soil and contains an insert com
posed of two layers ll of horse-hair ?bre, the
hairs in one layer extending in vertical and those
in the other in horizontal direction, vertical staves
2 being worked in between the two layers. A
45 lining 4 of soft leather, such as lambskin or the
like is stitched on the inner side of the cover,
and left open at the top at 3. The soft lamb
skin lining 4 fits snugly against the leg and re
tains the attachment in position without slip
ping. >For securing the attachment in position
a loop 5 made of elastic material designed to re
ceive the foot 9 is ?xed to the lower end of the
attachment and at the top thereof an elastic: band
6 is provided for buttoning on to the hip support
or the like.
The loop 5 for the foot 9 is secured
atone end to the side of the cover I at its lower
end 8 and at the other end to the point ‘I of the 10
inner lambskin lining 4. The point ‘I of the lamb
skin lining 4, up to the dotted line, is not con
nected to the lower end 8, so that no folds can
be formed by the pull of the elastic loop 5 when
walking, since the lower end 8 extends freely over 15
the ankle. The attachment is put on by ?rst plac
ing the foot 9 into the loop 5. Then the desired
number of compensating pads In of a cloth cover
?lled with horse-hair and sewn or stitched in
vertical and horizontal direction in order to pre 20
vent the horse-hair from being displaced are in
serted into the pocket through the opening 3.
Thereupon the attachment is secured to the hip
support or the like by the elastic band 6. The
stocking is then slipped-on over the attachment.
We claim:--

5
A leg-straightening attachment, comprising in
combination an outer cover two layers of a fab
ric whose threads are made of a material which
does not shrink when it gets wet, and are super 30
posed at right angles, in the individual fabrics
parallel vertical staves embedded between said
two layers, the staves gradually becoming shorter
towards the rear side of the leg, a lining of soft
leather secured on the exposed surface of the ‘
horse-hair layer on the inner side of the attach
ment, said lining being in the form of a pocket
open at the top and forming an obtuse angle at
its lower end, an elastic loop adapted to receive
the foot of the wearer secured at one end to the
lower end of said lining and at the other end to ‘i0
the lower end of the cover, and a compensating
pad adapted to be inserted in said pocket-shaped
lining through the open end thereof.
