Application July 6, 1936, Serial No. 88,924 1 Claim. (Cl. 2-42) This invention relates to improvements in bras forced with a narrow bias edge facing 28 and sières or bust garments. stitched at 29 and 30. (Fig. 12.) Buttons 3| are One of the objects is to provide a brassière of shown at the intersection of edges 23 and 24. improved form, simplified construction, and re Panels 22 are each provided with a side edge 32, ‘ duced cost. Another object is to provide a garment as de scribed which is form fitting and has features of adjustability. Another object is to provide a garment as de 10 scribed which is adapted to provide proper sup port and has combination features of utility. A further object is to provide a garment having the above mentioned objects and adapted to have various modes of attachment. Other objects and advantages will be apparent and brought out more fully in the following de scription, reference being had to the accompany ing drawings, wherein: Fig. 1 is an outer or face view of the garment 20 embodying my invention and showing a neck strap attachment; Fig. 2 is a view of the inner side of the gar ment; Fig. 3 is a partial end sectional View enlarged, taken along the line 3_3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is a partial cross sectional view through one of the darts, taken along the line 4-4 of Fig. 1; Figs. 5-8, inclusive, are views illustrating one 30 mode of attachment of the garment; Figs. 9 and 10 respectively, are similar views showing modified modes of attachment; Fig. 11 is a view similar to Fig. 1, showing the outer member partially folded back; Fig. 12 is a sectional view taken substantially along the line I2-I2 of Fig. '7; Fig. 13 is a view of the garment partially com pleted; Fig. 14 is a detail view of one of the members forming the outer portion of the garment; Fig. 15 is a partial sectional View enlarged, taken along the line |5--I5 of Fig. 11; and Fig. 16 is a similar View taken along the line |6---|6 of Fig. 1. Referring more particularly to the drawings and especially to» Figs. 11 and 13, I show a gar ment havin-g an inside member 2|J` preferably of one piece of material, and an outer member 2| preferably formed with. two panels 22. Inner member 20 has side edges 23, a somewhat V shaped top edge 24, and bottom edge 25. (Fig 2.) Inner member 20 is further provided with breast openings 26, the edges of which are turned in and stitched, forming a narrow finished seam 21. 55 The side edges 23 and the top edge 24 are rein top edge 33, middle or meeting edge 34, and bot- 5.1 tom edge 35. Slits 36 and 31 are cut in each member 22 in edges 32 and 34, respectively, and . stitched at 38 forming a French seam and con stituting darts 39. Members 22 are sewed to gether along edge 34 at 40 and form a finished seam, the goods being turned back and given a second stitching at 4|. A lining strip 28a is se cured along edges 33 and stitched at 29a and 30a (Fi-g. 12) in a manner similar to finished seam 2`| and facing 28. Panels 22, which together form 15 outer member 2|, have finished edges 42 stitched at 43, and a bottom stitching 44 secures together . the bottom edges of members 20 and 2|. Auxil iary finished seam stitching 45 is further provided in member 20 (Fig. 3), which, with stitching 44, 20 deñnes the bottom edge 46 of the garment adapt ed to lie along the diaphragm of the body or bust. A plain inside seam 41 is formed by ap propriate stitching, the outer ends of which are curved upwardly, defining a somewhat flatl dia phragm. band. A vertical stitching 48 between the breast openings 26 or along the sternum se cures members 2D and 2| together along this line. This stitching, together with the fullness of the panels 2| and the darts 3S, forms breast pockets 30 49 as clearly illustrated in Fig. 12, the lower edges of the pockets 49 being adapted to provide a de gree of support for the breasts if desired. But tonholes 50 are provided in outer member 2| and adapted to- cooperate with buttons 3|, and a neck strap 5| having buttonholes 52 may be used to support the garment by attachment to buttons 3|. At the lower outer corners of the garment buttons 53 are provided for attachment of the garment to a garter band 54. As a modified mode of attachment of the gar ment where the garter band may not be used, bands 55 are attached to buttons 53, crossed in the back at 56, and brought around to- the front and tied at 5l adjacent the diaphragm. As a 35 . 40 45 further optional mode of attachment, particu larly where it may be desired to use the garment as with an evening gown or the like, and the neck strap 5| dispensed with, shoulder straps 58 may be attached to buttons 3| and brought down the 50 backover the shoulder blades and secured in any suitable manner to bands 55 as shown in Fig. 10. From the foregoing description the various ad vantages of the garment should be apparent. It will be readily seen that the garment is adapted 55 2 2,127,927 to be either a body garment or a brassière and is readily attachable to a garter belt or corset or to an attachable belt by the buttons as described. The garment may be designed to cover the dia phragm or the diaphragm band may be abbrevi ated for hot weather use. As described, the off set darts form the breast pockets together with the sternum stitching 4 l, and provide ample sup port for the breasts and abdomen. As shown in 10 Fig. 12 the inner member 20 ñts snugly across the diaphragm and upper portion of the bust and serves to position the garment such that no ac cidental displacement can occur. The outer member 2| by forming the individual breast pock 15 ets as described, forms them in accordance with the present mode. ‘The breast pockets as de scribed are adapted for artificial ñlling to- define a natural form in such instances as may be de sired. The garment, as described, is a suitable 20 foundation for an evening gown, the straps being removable and may be interchanged with straps of the same material as the evening gown, the desirability of which is well recognized. Thus the garment as described is adapted for 25 greater freedom and comfort as Well as a wide range of utility. The outer panel members 22 are adapted to be independently unbuttoned for the convenience of nursing mothers. While I have illustrated and described the pre ferred form of construction for carrying my in ventlon into effect, this is capable of variation and modiñcation without departing from» the spirit of the invention. I, therefore, do not wish to be limited to the precise details of construc tion set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modiñcations as come within the scope of the appended claim. Having thus described my invention, what I 10 claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pat ent is: A brassière or the like garment as described, comprising inner and outer members, said inner member having breast openings whereby said in 15 ner member snugly ñts the bust at all points, and said outer member adapted to substantially cover said inner member and having breast pockets adapted to support the breasts, said members being secured together along their lower edges and along a line immediately below the breasts whereby to form a diaphragm band, said mem bers being detachably attached at points at the top thereof whereby said outer member may be partially or wholly folded downwardly to expose 25 either or both breasts.
