1 The bandage 14 consists of. an outer silk layer'19i with turnedinends 20 for holding a lining- 21. An inner layer engages-upon the lining 21 and consists or, silk ends 22 and 23,and a central cotton absorbent section'24, and the said ends 22 and 23 and the central section 24 have'turned-in edges 25. Stitches 26 secure the inner and outer layers together. s n l A cotton absorbent pad 27 is disposed between the central absorbent section 24 and the lining 21, and stitches 28 secure the pad 27 to the central section 24.

In use, the threading member 17 is removed and the ends of the sections 12 and 13 are tied together for holding the device upon a wearer. When the device becomes soiled due to wear it may be washed as is customary with other clothes. It is pointed out that all the parts constituting the device are of simple durable construction, and furthermore are so arranged for being worn withcomfort.

The modified form of the device illustrated I -in Fig. 7 discloses flexible members 29 atbers 31 attached to its edges and the hooks 30 engage certain of these eye members for 3 forming a pleat 32 in the bandage of a size determined by the particular eyes 31 engaged by the hooks for adjustin the operative length of the bandage, and Ior providing a slight tension therein when worn.

While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is z 1. In a catamenial bandage, a sanitary bandage support permanently attached on an elastic portion of a body band, aplurality of eye members attached onthe edges of the bandage support near the said point of attachment, and flexible members secured on the said elastic portion and having hook members on their free ends engageable with the said eye members for holding the band age support in a pleated condition so as to determine its operative length and provide a slight tension during use.
