10 Claims.
This invention relates to garments and has
particular reference to devices of the type used
by stout women for compressing the abdomen
and diaphragm.
.5
One object of the invention is to provide a
garment of the character described wherein an
inner belt for an outer restraining portion of the
garment is secured around the body at a much
higher tension than that of the outer portion,
10 and the central part of the front section of the
outer garment portion being subjected by the
belt to the much higher tension mentioned to
shift excess ?esh laterally so as to be retained
by lower tension lateral parts of the outer section
.15 above and below the belt.

part of the belt portion is located at any point
intermediate of the spaced gusset means. With
this principle, greater freedom of movement is
permitted, and the belt portion tensions the gus
set means and hence the intermediate part of the 5
outer garment portion. This intermediate or
front section of the outer garment portion may
thus be at a considerably higher tension than the
adjacent lateral parts of the outer garment por
tion, and is thus quite ?at so as to even out the 110
contour of the body. Also the tension of this
section varies with that of the inner belt. And
yet, because this section is itself relatively non
elastic, its original body shaping ?t is maintained.
The excess ?esh that escapes the belt may 15

which patent will serve to illustrate further the
type of garment to which the present invention
relates.
The main problem for success in a garment of
'35 this character is toavoid the irregular body con
tour due to the bulge at the belt, and especially
due to bulges produced above the belt by the
action of the belt itself. Numerous attempts
have been made by corset experts to obtain a

comfort to the wearer, but have not been success

Another object of the invention, therefore, is
the provision of a garment having an inner high
tension belt and an outer ?attening garment part
whose front section is connected to the belt so as, 35
to be subject to a higher tension than adjacent
lateral parts of the outer garment part, above
and ‘below the belt, and with the tension on said
front section being less than or equal to that
of said belt.

Another object is to furnish such a garment

conformation different than that of the belt, to

Another object of the invention is to furnish a
garment having an inner belt according to an
improved arrangement such as will tend to cause
separation of the breasts.
A further object of the invention is to pro
vide a garment 0f the character described hav
10 ing few and simple parts, and which is durable,
reliable and efficient in use.
Other objects and advantages of the invention
will become apparent as the speci?cation pro
ceeds.
With the aforesaid objects in view, the inven
15
tion consists in the novel combinations and ar
rangements of parts hereinafter described in
their preferred embodiments, pointed out in the
subjoined claims, and illustrated in the annexed
20 drawing, wherein like parts are designated by the
same reference characters throughout the several
views.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is an inside plan view of the garment
laid out in open position, with parts removed.

Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line 2—2 of
Fig. 1.
'
Fig. 3 is a similar sectional view but with the
parts tensioned to generally correspond to actual
30 use.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view with parts removed
of a modi?ed form of the invention.
Figs. 5 and 6 are sectional views taken re
spectively on the lines 5-5 and 6-45 of Fig. 4.
The advantages of the invention as here out
35
lined are best realized when all of its features and
instrumentalities are combined in one and the
same structure, but, useful devices may be pro
tensions such as 25 to which garters may be
secured.
It is important to note that a primary char
acteristic of the outer garment part II is that it
is cut, worked and shaped to accurately ?t the
individual wearer when his body is tensioned by
the inner belt I2. For this purpose suitable
seams, elastic gores, shapes of edges as at I6, H
are provided to furnish different capacities at
different points of the garment for a form ?tting 10
action with the outer garment part I3 being
under tension. Elastic elements, wherever pro
vided, as at 2B, 21, are distinctively hatched with
horizontal lines. Fold parts as at 28, 29 are
indicative of slack that is provided for desired
body ?tting conformation. Other slack or elastic
elements may be furnished in the outer garment
part as may be necessary.
However, the front section I5 of the outer
garment part, especially the generally central 20
upright part 30 of the front section I5, is rela
tively or wholly inelastic, since this part is sub
ject, as hereinafter described, to considerable
tension and deformation, and must maintain a
set position to ?atten out or conceal bulges that
may be caused by the high tension inner belt I2.
The inner belt I2 operates under high tension
and hence is preferably separately attached
around the body as at the edges I9, 22. There
after the outer garment is secured at lesser ten 30
sion at the edges IS, IT.
Due to the high tension of the inner belt I2,
it preferably includes an elastic element 3I that
may extend from the upper to the lower edge
thereof. The material of this elastic element 3I
has limited stretchability, because its fabric is
constructed with non-stretching threads which
come into action when the elastic threads have
been stretched to a predetermined extent. The

The invention provides means whereby the

produced in the part 30, in excess of? that caused
by the fastening at I9, 22. Hence the tension at
30 may be equal to butis preferably somewhat
less than the tension of the inner belt l2. The
latter may have boning as at 36 tending to
straighten or ?atten out any resulting bulge, and
the part 30 serves to further produce the appear
ance of ?atness and uniformity.
It is noted that the section 30 may have some
10 slack therein as at 31, and the section l5 may
have some slack as at 38 between the stitching l8
and 34, in the nontensioned position of the gar
ment. In lieu of slack, adjusting or elastic
means may be provided.
It will now be seen that the invention is char
15
acterized by a front garment section 15, having
lesser tension than the inner belt, and having
a central higher tension region produced by the
inner belt. In other words, the regions of the
20 front section l5, lateral to the central section
30 may have a lesser tension than the section
30.
This may be e?'ected by providing a suffi
cient slack at 38, and by suitably arranging the
length of the garment between the edges l6, l1.
25 Hence the excess ?esh which escapes the inner
belt l2 upward and downward is forced laterally
by the central section 30 toward the upper lateral
regions at 39, 40 and the lower lateral regions at
4|, 42 with resulting ?atness at the front.
30
In Figs. 4 to 6 is shown a garment 45 which is
generally like the garment [0, except that the
inner belt |2a is formed with a central upward
extension 46 which is free of the outer section
45 except that it is connected at its upper end
35 at 41 to the top of the section l5.
Being other
wise free of the latter, the section 46 aids in sep
arating the breasts. This result may be aided
by securing a pad element or strip 48 to the
part 46 to lie between the latter and the front
40 section I5, said pad element being secured at 41
and 49 to bridge the space between the body
and the brassiere, the latter being held outward
by the bust.
45
The elastic 31a is somewhat differ
ently positioned, but this is immaterial.
I claim:
1. A garment including an outer or main gar
ment portion and an inner belt portion, the gar
ment portion comprising a front section and a
50 roar section and being attachable around the
wearer’s body so as to extend between and to
cover the bust and the hips, the belt portion being
adapted to cover only the abdomen and dia
phragm and extending along and being con
55 nected near its opposite ends to the said front
section, the belt portion having an elastic part
and being attachable around the body under
high tension, the said connections including
gusset like elements each being connected at
60
spaced points to the belt portion and front sec
tion, said elastic part being located between and
cooperating with the elements so that stretching
of the elastic part causes said elements to exert
a stretching force on the adjacent central part
of the front section, said elements operatively
65 extending to the top edge of the belt portion, and
at least one of said elements being elastic, the
adjacent central part of the said front section
being relatively nonstretching and having an
initial slack portion therein, whereby the said
70 adjacent central part of the front section oom
presses the body under a tension less than that of
the belt portion and forces excess ?esh laterally
to be retained by lateral parts of said front sec
tion, which lateral parts have less tension than
75 the adjacent central part.
3
I 2. A garment including an outer garment por
tion comprising a front section and a rear sec
tion and having means for attachment thereof
around the wearer’s body so as to extend between
and over the bust and hips, an inner belt adapted
to cover only the diaphragm and abdomen, said
belt comprising a front portion connected at one
end at the junction between the front and rear
sections of the outer garment portion, said belt
front portion extending along said front section
and being yieldably connected thereto along
spaced upright lines- spaced from the ?rst men
tioned connection so as to de?ne a central portion
of said front section, said belt front portion
having an upright take-up element intermediate
of the spaced yielding connections, said belt hav
ing means for attaching the same under high
tension along the wearer’s body independently of
the attaching means of the outer garment, said
yielding connections including at least one gusset '20
like element interconnecting the belt and outer
garment and lying therebetween so that tension
on the belt causes stretching of said element
and consquent tautness of the said central part
of said front garment section, the said central
part being relatively nonyielding so as to tautly
press upon the body above the belt at a lesser
tension than that of the belt and to force excess
?esh laterally under said outer garment above
the belt, the said central part of the front gar
ment section having initial slack, and the front
garment section having initial slack intermediate
of the ?rst mentioned connection and the second
mentioned connections.
3. A garment for stout women including means
comprising an outer garment member having a
front section, and an inner belt member, said
members coaoting with each other so that the
belt member is secured around the body separate
ly of the outer garment member, the front part of -:
the belt being connected along spaced upright
lines to the front section up to the upper edge of
the belt, the garment member being shaped to
tightly ?t the wearer’s body over the attached
belt and the portion of the garment member in
termediate of and above the said lines of connec
45
tion being nonstretching, the belt member having

tween the members to cause the belt to render
taut the central part of the front section.
55
4. A garment including an outer ?tted garment
member, a yielding inner belt member, the latter
being secured around the body at a substantially
higher tension than the garment member, means
connecting the belt member to the front of the 60
garment member along spaced upright lines, said
means including elastic gusset elements lying be
tween the members and serving to hold taut the
intermediate, part of the garment member to re
duce bulging at the belt.
65.
5. A garment including an outer garment mem
ber tightly ?tted to the body under the tension of
an inner belt, an inner belt having a predeter
mined limited elasticity, the inner belt being op
eratively secured around the body at a substan
tially higher tension than the garment member,
70
the latter extending above the belt, means inter
connecting the belt and the front of the garment
