(Cl. 241—8) This invention is directed, to a belt and it is among the objects of the invention to provide means of preventing slippage of the belt. Wher ever belts are used in conjunction with sport clothing I have observed that it is quite dif?cult to keep the belt in its proper location. In order to overcome that I have provided means which exerts a gripping action upon the body of the wearer at points substantially immediately in front of and behind such wearer’s hips. ‘Another and important object of the invention is to provide comfort promoting means which function to space the buckle portion of the belt outwardly from the abdomen of a wearer. In the past considerable discomfort has been occasioned by pressure of the buckle upon the abdominal region. As a means of insuring com fort, at all times, I employ spaced projections which have a tendency to offset the buckle por tion of the belt outwardly; . Another object'of the invention is to promote comfort by offsetting the portion of the belt out wardly adjacent to the back of the wearer, thus avoiding pressure upon thekidneys of the wearer. In the drawing submitted herewith I have dis closed one embodiment of my invention but it will be understood that I am not to be restricted to the speci?c means employed, nor to the exact belt - construction illustrated as equivalents of such means will appear obvious upon reading of the following speci?cation. ‘ In the accompanying drawing: and having inwardly extending projections ‘l, 8, 9 and I0, such projections being arranged pref erably in pairs with grooves I l and I2 between the individual projections of each pair. ' If desired, the inner layer or lamination 3 may be dispensed with as set forth above and if this '10 is done the insert 6 may be secured to a single layer 2' and such securing can be effected by means of adhesive, stitching, riveting and the like, as shown in Figure 6. In Figure 3 the belt is shown as used in actual 15 practice and here it will be seen that the pro- ’ jections "I and 8 lying forwardly of the hips of ‘the wearer have a tendency to offset the buckle 5' outwardly.‘ At the same time the projections 20 grip the soft ?esh in the vicinity of the hips thus preventing slippage of the belt. I' have found that this construction is exceedingly comfortable ‘ and in addition to the promotion of ‘comfort the belt, is positively retained in its desired position. 25 Likewise the usual pressure of the buckle 5 is diminished which adds to the comfort even after the wearer has partaken of a heavy meal. The depression l3 lying between the projections 8 and 9 snugly engages the hips of the wearer thus 30 easing the strain usually caused by a conven tional belt. .

The belt I is provided with‘the usual buckle 5' but it‘will, of course, be understood ‘that any other fastening means may be substi tuted for the conventional belt shown. It should also be noted that the belt may consist of a 40 sure of the belt upon the abdomen as well as the - i In conclusion it will be seen that the belt is neat appearing as well as comfortable. 45 I claim:-— I 1.
