- is a full, clear, and exact description.

It is a well-known fa'ct that various `devices have been patented with a View of protecting the garments of ladies during the menstrual period, such l device usually including a rubber casing which was to encircle the limbs and abdomen of the wearer.

Similar devices have been constructed with a view to protecting the garments ofy infants from moisture which impregnated the usual diapers and soiled the clothes.

Devices of this nature have, as--aforestated, usually been constructed of a waterproof material, such as sheet rubber, and have yproven very uncomfortable to the wearer after having been applied for a certain length of time, due to theA fact that in addition to preventing the escape of waste fluids they have prevented respiration of the pores of the skin a'nd also have prevented a free circulation of air around the parts to which the garment was applied.

In an endeavor to overcome this objection, I have constructed a sanitary garment, which is equally applicable to infants or to grown persons of the female sex, which will permit a suflicient quantity of air to come in contact with the parts enveloped by the garment, permit the evaporation of perspiration and eliminate any danger of a clogging of the pores, although preventing the esca e of any discharge uids.

y invention has, further, in mind the construction of a sanitary garment which,

` while embodying these desirable features, may be manufactured in a number of artistic designs which shall be pleasing to the eye and, consequently, attractive to the users.

Reference is had to the attached sheet of drawings which illustrates practical embodiments of my invention, and in which- Figure 1 is a front view of a sanitary garment constructed in accordance with my invention; Fig. 2 is a second form of garment con- Specication of Letters Patent. Patented Sept 21, -1920 Application led October 3, 1919.

Serial No. 328,153.

structed with the aforementioned objects in mind; and

Fig. 3 is a sectional view along line 3 3 of Fig. 1.

In these variousviews llike reference numerals designate similar parts, and the reference numeral l indicates the body of a garment, constructed of any suitable waterproof material, which is provided with any convenient form of belt 2. Associated vwith the inner face of the belt, at a position intermediate the side of the same,.are tabs 8 adapted to have secured to them by any practical means, such as pins, etc., the ends of a sanitary cloth.

Along the side edges of the garment, and at a point in the same adapted to overlie the hips and thighs of the wearer, the garment, asis shown in Fig. l, is` cut out, and in lieu of such cut-out portion an insert 4 of porous cloth, such as silk, etc., may be applied. In this connection I particularly bear in mind, when providing this insert, that the body of the garment 1 andthe `insert should be made of harmoni'zing colors so as to pro-vide a finished device which will be pleasing to the eye.

It will be seen upon reference to Fig. 2

that the cloth insert 4 may be entirely disbody of the wearer and retain the garment in 4applied position, although the air is at liberty to circulate through the same.

From the above it will be seen that I have constructed a sanitary garment which will effectually protect the outer garments of the wearer from being soiled but which will, nevertheless, reduce to a minimum the detrimental features of garments heretofore constructed with this object in mind.

Obviously, various changes might be re` sorted to in the arrangement of the openings, in their size and design, together with providing such openings at any desired points in the garment.

I claim:

1. A garment, including trunk and limbencircling portions, said garment being cut garment being formed with a number of cut! ourt along certain parts of the side edges of out portions adjacent its side edges7 whereby said limb portie-ns, whereby to provide a to provide openings, through the body of l0 number of openings spaced from one anvsaid garment, entirely inclosed by an inother by means of integral straps. egral portion of said body. Y

2. A garment, comprising a body including trunk and limb encircling portions, said KURLY HElITLER.
