Application September ‘30, 1938, Serial No. 103,400 8 Claim. (on. ‘2-41) This invention relates to improvements in ladies garments, and particularly to a combined girdle and pan . 5 garment having an upper portion in the form of ‘ thigh, as shown in Figure 4. The crotch portion ‘ I5 is in the form of ,an inverted V shaped gusset, and preferably is formed of a double thickness of material. - ' . . As the girdle portion is elastic and the pants 5 portion in the form of pants or “briefs” smoothly joined together so as not to cause a bulge in the outer garments, as is the case when two separate l0 garments are worn. I _' , ' Another object relates to the method of Joining the two portions of the garment so that they will cooperate with each other, the portion form ing the girdle being of elastic material that will 15 stretch in all directions, and the pants portion being of relatively inelastic material. Another object relates to the method 01' hold ing the girdle portion of the garment from being longitudinally displaced or wrinkled andlto hold 20 it smoothly in place by means of an anchoring .1. thigh band portion of the pants. Other objects relate to various features of con ' struction and arrangement which will be ap parent from a consideration of the following 25 speci?cation and drawing, whereinz' ' ‘ Figure 1 is a rear elevation of the garment, and, Figure 2 is a section thereof on the line |—~I. 30 Figure 3 is a rear elevation of the garment. Figure 4 is a front elevation of the garment in its stretched and applied position.

In the use of girdles of the type shown that do not have stays, it is necessary to provide a means 15 to hold the girdle stretched longitudinally, as . otherwise it will curl up or buckle and not pro vide proper support, and also cause irregularities in the outer garments. To offset this, depend ing garters are usually. attached to the girdle to be fastened to stockings. This causes great 20 wear and tear on the stockings, and the method is not adapted to the wearing of short length stockings. Sometimes crotch pieces‘ are provided, but this expedient causes too great tension at some portions and not enough at others. By the 25 construction herein set forth the use of depend ing garters has been eliminated and a means to hold the girdle uniformly stretched is provided. Furthermore, the lines of stitching i8 extending from the thigh pieces H to the center of the 30 Figure 5 is a front ’ curved portion or dip I 2 form a reinforcement away showing a variation in the construction’ and a divided line of tension to keep the girdle 36 Figure 6, and, stretched over the abdomen without causing un Figure 6 is a section thereof on the line 6-6 due strain on the gusset IS.
