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:

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

Fig. 15 is a partial sectional View enlarged,

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
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
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.
