4 f3 Claims. (01. 2-43) The present invention relates to women's gar:-

ments and more particularly togirdleshaving a crotch. Thesegarments are of the type commonly known as pantie girdles, and may be provided with what might be termed'a sanitary hood, as a lining for thecrotch. Preferably, such hood ,is detachable.

Though the pantie girdle is eflicient in lending beautiful contour, itnevertheless causes the wearer much discomfort, inconvenience and bother, in that the'garment must be taken off each time personal needs need'be attended to,'or

in order to change the crotch lining if one is included and it become accidently stained, or to re- Secure said lining if it become accidently detached even in part. Then again, should the crotch lining wrinkle up; it will cause chafing and irritation to which ordinary body movements will lend "a share.

It is therefore an object of this invention to a novel andimproved pantiegirdlewhich provide v I obviates all of the objectionable incidents mentioned, by having an opening in the crotch which automatically closes when the. wearer rises to. standing position or is walking, andwhich automatically assumes open condition when the wearer sits down.

Another object of thepresent inventionis to provide a garment of the character mentionedbf novel and improved construction, whichneed-n'ot be taken off to attend to personal needs, and which permits easy removal and replacement of. the crotch lining or hood member, while the garment is worn. 9

A further object hereof is to provide a garment of the type described; with a crotch lining or hood member of novel and improved construction, which automatically maintains or restores itself to unwrinkled condition and proper position against the body of the wearer,-- regardless of its distortion due to ordinary body movements or any swinging or swaying motions the body need assume while walking, running, jumping, skipping, dancing, kneeling, knee-bending, waist-bending or the like. Y

vide a pantie girdle and sanitary removable crotch hood therefor of the nature set forth, of novel and improved construction, which is reasonably cheap to manufacture, easy and conven- @ient to use, comfortable to wear and eflicientin carrying out the purposes for which it is designed.

Other objects and advantages will be'com a j'crotc'h opening in open condition; which is auto- "matically accomplished prised of the members this specification, similar characters of reference :indicate corresponding parts'in all the views.

attain clarity of illustration, lace edgings, trimmings and otherfrills usually incident in this type of garment, are purposely omitted. It is to be noted that the crotch opening is here shown in closed condition. f

Fig. 2 is a back view of said girdle, showing the when the wearer is seated.

Fig. 3. shows the exterior surface of the crotch structure, when spread out flat.

v Figs. 4 and 5 show the two identical members; which comprisethe crotch in the embodiment illustrated;

; Fig. 6 showsan embodiment of the hood or 20 crotch lining memberconstructed in accordance with this invention, as viewed from its undersur- "face, This surface is in part visible in Fig. 2.

Inthe drawings, the numeral 20 indicates generally, apantie girdle whose crotch, designated generally by'the-nume'ral 2|, is essentially com- 22' and 22', joined to any, desired girdle construction, which is here show to be made up of front members 23 and 23',1sidc members 24 and '24" and the seat members 25 and 25'. It is preferable that the side and front mem-. bers beof elastic fabric material stretchable horizontally; that the seat members be stretchable vertically and that the crotch components be stretchable verticallyin their position shown in Fig. 3.-'

' Each of the crotch members 22 and 22 pre- "sents an edge longitudinally thereof, whose end components diverge fromthe mid region thereof,- as for instance the curved edges 26 and 26' respectively. 'Said crotch members are associated so that the mid regions of said edges are in abut- -ment or nearly so, to virtually form a slit 21in the crotch 2l ,'-while the respective extremities of the crotch members including the extremities of Still another object of this invention is to pro--' such mentioned edges, overlap each other in pairs in such fashion that one; such extremity of one crotchmember shall overlapone such extremity "0f the other crotch member, while the secon doi' such extremities of the first crotch member shall be overlapped by the second of such extremities of the second crotch member.

In the embodiment shown, each of the crotch members include a pair of divergent end sections C falls on point C and point D falls on point D. So placed, the parts are stitched as at 28 and 29. This method of assembly by forming a single loop braid of the crotch members, efiects an interlocked association of said members.

With slit 21 positioned along from the front to the back of the garment, the crotch assembly of Fig. 3, is joined to the girdle structure by sewing it to the front and seat memb ers in the manner knownto th I t, t 'ipi he l 56 .1 1 39 .5 1.? 30; the width of each of the crotch members 22 and 22 being sufficient to form part of the pantie on and engaging the thighs of the wear l z. In Standing position when the garm t worn, slit 2! will be closed because the rnidx regions of the edges 26 andgfif yvill be substan; tially in abutment. When theti' earer sitsdowfn and spreads her feet apart a little, the slit yvill be, opened.
