The various features of novelty which characterize the
invention are pointed out with particularity in the claims
annexed to and forming a part of this speci?cation. For
a better understanding of the invention, its operating ad
vantages and speci?c objects attained by its use, reference 1
should be had to the accompanying drawings and descrip
tive matter in which is illustrated and described preferred
embodiment of the invention.
In the drawings:
FIG. 1 is the rear view of a strapless or halter type
brassiere embodying the present invention.
FIG. 2 is a diagrammatic showing of a modified ar—
rangement of the invention as employed in a strapless type
brassiere.
FIG. 3 is a rear view of the left half of a long-line
brassiere embodying the invention.
FIG. 4 is a front view of the right half of the brassiere
of FIG. 3.
FIG. 5 illustrates a rear view of a modi?ed for-m of
the invention as applied to the long-line brassiere of

FIG. 6 illustrates the rear view of still another modi?ed
embodiment of the invention.
Referring to the drawings, FIG. 1 is illustrative of the
invention as applied to a strapless, or halter styled brass

Referring to FIG. 2, there is shown a modi?ed form of
the invention. This form of the invention is identical in
all respects to the strapless type brassiere, herein de
scribed, with the exception that the plastic stays 36’ are
disposed so as to extend horizontally across each cap as’.
For this reason the brassiere of FIG. 2 is shown for the
most part only in outline form. In this embodiment the
plastic stays 36’ embrace the bust to provide the desired
,
uplift.
FIG. 3 illustrates a modi?ed form of the invention
applied to a long-line type brassiere 450. Only the left
half of the brassiere is illustrated, it being understood
that the right half is similar, but opposite in hand. The
brassiere comprises cup 41 formed from an upper panel
42 and lower panel 43 sewn together in the manner here
inbefore described with respect to FIG. 1.. The cup 41
is formed of a layer of lace material on mesh.
Connected to the cup 41 is a long-line lower front
band 44. The lower front band 44 comprises a lace
midrib portion 44A and an elastic midrib portion 44B
sewn along seam 45. Reinforcing seam 4-6 is also pro
vided. Immediately below the lower peripheral portion
of cup 41 on the back side of band 44 is a panel 47 of
siere for wear with a low cut or evening type gown and 60 elastic sheet material (FIG. 3) which is sewn to the mid
rib portions MA, 448 along a seam 43 and to the cup
