in the opposite direction, the two series of rib

is adapted, when the garment is worn, to overlie
the hypogastric or abdominal region of the torso.
By this disposition of the strips of Aribbon or

advantages of my invention may be attained by
any disposition of ribbons, tapes, or the like in
which they cross in an area of the garment sec
tion which will give the benefit of the increased
support and ñattening effect, although not to
the full extent resulting from the particular con
structions described. Thus, it is conceivable, and
I recognize such possibility, that’similar advan
tages and effects will be produced by having the
ribbons or tapes extend in horizontal and verti

or smoothing of the ñesh, is directly beneath the ’ described. Such structures, if embodying cross
area of the section in which the ribbons'or tapes ~ ingribbons or tapes, I regard within the ambit
of my disclosure and invention.

In the rear section of the garment a like
disposition of two series of ribbons I9 is made, but
in such manner that the first series crosses the
second series at a region of the garment which,
when it is worn, overlies the buttocks or the
portion of the torso below the small of the back,
with the'like-result of flattening and smoothing
the underlying flesh. The bottom portions of the

ribbons'or tapes effectively cover the bulges of
the thighs.
In place of the ribbons or tapes, there may be
used strip-pings, or ordinary binding cloth with its
edges turned in. Such strips may be also con
stituted of plain ribbon or tape material or of
stretchable material, such as Lastex. Further

It should be noted that one series of strips of
ribbon or tape, i. e., those on the front section ID,
extend from near the bottom extremities of the
edges of the section, upwardly 'and diagonally, to
substantially the upper edge of the section,
30 whereas the other series of strips of ribbon or
As already indicated, the basic principle of my
novel undergarment, that is„the crossed dispo 25
sition of the ribbon, tapes, or strippings, may be
applied »with equally good results to garments
having any desirable type of honing wherever
placed within, or upon `the garment sections.
I claim:
tape, i. e., those upon the rear section, extend
from near the bottom extremities of the edges of
the section to near the upper extremities of such
edges, but not to the upperv edge of the section.

1. A garment, including a tight ñtting front
portion, said portion having two series of parallel
inelastic ribbons, tapes, or the like secured along
their lengths to said portion, and extending sub

portion, one series crossing the other diagonally
in the region overlying the abdomen ofV th
the second, or on the rear section.
It will be understood that while I have shown
40 the two series comprising three parallel strips
of ribbon or tape, and any number, two or more,
of such strips may be used-in either series. '
In the embodiment of my invention illustrated
in Figs.V 3 to 5, substantially the .same effects and
results are produced by series of tapes' 2B on the
front section and series of tapes 2| on the rear
section. In such embodiment, however, the rib
bons or tapes are secured by stitching, upon the
' inner faces of such sections, namely those which
50 are adapted, when the garment is' worn, to con
tion, said portion having two series of parallel
inelastic ribbons, tapes, or the like secured along
their lengths' to said portion, and extending sub
stantially from one side to the other side of said
portion, one series crossing the other in the region
overlying the buttocks of the wearer.

of the abdomen, said portion having a front sec

inserts in the front section, extending approxi
mately half way down the `length of the section,
and two such bone inserts in the rear section,
extending substantially the entire length of the
rear section. It isto be understood, of course,
65 that my invention is not limited to undergar

undergarments having no boning whatever

of my invention, it is obvious that various modiñ

and disposition of the parts may be made without
departing from my invention.
