foundation garment,~ a brassiere member at

of said panels to the top of said panels, a front
portion of the garment comprising a front panel
member and a plurality of shorter superimposed
panels attached to such panel member along its
sides so that they lie across each other inwardly

posed panels carrying spaced boned members set 65

portions of thefront panels, and in which ‘a
superimposed ‘elastic layer is attached to upper
portions of elastic side panels at either side of
