diaper vwill fit snugly around the child whenthe yvide means for suspending a1 diaper or the like within a pair of trunks without the'usefof pins or the like in such a manner as to 'holdthe diaper securely and vto vprevent the' diaper from cha-fing the wearer.A v
It is still anotherr obect "of this' invention to provide means for suspending' adiaperor the like within a childs garment in such Aa manner as to permit its easy removal. fromthe garment.
Some of `theobjectsof `the invention having been stated, other objectswill appear asthe description proceeds, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:
Figure 1` is an isometric view of the'garment showing the same as'- wornbyr a child, a portion of the body of the child` being shown in'dot'ted I lines; f
Figure 2 is an enlarged planviewof the garnient in unfolded position and showing the man` ner in which a diaper issecured'thereini A l Figure 3 is an enlarged exploded sectional view taken" along the line 3-3` in' Figure'2 and showing the mannerin which the upperu edge of the garment is reinforced andthe mannerinwhich a depending tape is secured theretoff' y Figure 4 is an enlarged ex'pl'ided sectional View taken along the line" l-l-in -Figure 2 and showing the mannerin which a diaperis folded around transverse tapes t secure the same within thev garment.
Referring more specifically to the drawings the numeral I0 broadly designates a childs gar- I1 (Figures 3 and 4)` preferably being of fabric and the inner layer indicated at I8 preferably beingof a waterproof material. The upper front or left-hand edge of thetrunks, in Figure 2, is provided with a reinforcing hem which is formed by the two layers of material I1 and I8 being tiuned'over at their upper edges and having a turned'` under portion of a tape 2B sewn thereto by stitches 2l (Figure 3). Ther other edge of the tape 2l) is penetrated by stitches 22 which extend through a pair of depending tapes to be presently described and penetrate the inner and outer `layers of material I8 and Il to thus securely bind the upper edge of the trunks.
The front sides v25 and 26 and the back sides gland 28 are reinforced in a similar manner by tapes 3U, indicated by dotted lines in Figure 2, which are' sewn between the inner layer of material Eiland the outer layer of material il along a line of stitches 3|. The line of stitches 3| eX- tends along the fulllength ofthe trunks on each side thereof and thus extends around the edge of the cut away portions I3 and I5 to bind the .two layers of material together at the cut away portions. I
` By referring to Figure e it will be observed that the upper back or right-hand edge in Figure 2 of the trunks is reinforced in a manner similar to the manner in which the front edge is rein forced. The outer layer of material il and the inner layer I 8y are turned over at their upper edges and a turned under portion of a tape 322 is sewn thereto by stitches 33. The other edge of the tape 32 is penetrated by stitches 33 which extend through a pair of depending tapes, to bc presently described, and penetrate the inner and outer layers of material I8 and ll to thus securely bind the back upper edge of the trunks. An elastic tape 36 is preferably secured between the tape 32 and the turned over portions of the inner and outer layers of material I3 and il by stitches 31 and 38. Therelastic tape serves to gather the upper back portion of thetrunks l0 and to assist in holding the same snugly against the body of a wearer.
Suit/able snap fasteners 40 are provided along the front and back edges of the trunks In so that the trunks may be folded around the body of a `child i6 and the snap fasteners 4l! may "be The lowermost` the trunks for securing a diaper or the like within the trunks and since these means are identical only the means at the front of the trunks will be described, the same reference characters with the prime notation added applying to the means at the back of the trunks.
A pair of depending tapes 4I and 42 which may be of any suitable material such as fabric, or elastic, or plastic or the like are'secured at their upper ends to the upper edge of the trunks In by means of the stitches 22 which also secure the tape 2E! to the layers of material I1 and I8. By referring to Figure 3, it will be observed that'the tape 4! is disposed between the tape 2Q and the inner layer of material i3 and is folded to provide an upper portion 41a and a lower portion Mb. The tape 42 is folded in va like-manner. Tapes 4I and 42' are secured to the back upper edge of the trunks l in a like manner by the stitches 35 which secure the tape 32 to the back edge of thelayers of material Il and I8, and these tapes 4i' and 42 are folded like the tapes 4i and 42.
.The depending tapes 4I and 42 are spaced apart from each other a distance approximately equal to the widthof the trunks at their narrowest point between the cut away portions I3 and l5 and are provided with a plurality of transverse tapes 45 which extend between the tapes 4I and 42 and are secured at one end between the upper portion 4Ia and the lowerportion' 4I?) of the tape 4I by stitches 46. The other end of the tapes 45 are secured to the tape 42 in a like manner by stitches 41. It is thus seen that the tapes 4|, 42 and 45 and the tapes 4I', 42 and 45 form a pair of ladder-like suspension means for holding an absorbent disposable pad or diaper 5@ within the trunks l 0.
The diaper 50 is folded into a rectangular shape and one end thereof is placed over the tapes 45 at the front portion H of the trunks l5 and is then folded back under the uppermost of the tapes 45 and alternately over and under the other of the tapes 45 to hold the diaper 50 securely in a desired position. The other end of the diaper 50 is folded over the tapes 45 at the back portion l2 of the trunks l0 in a like manner to thus hold the diaper 55 securely within the trunks I0 and to cover the tapes 45 and 45 so that they will not come into contact with the body of a wearer when the trunks are worn. Further, the manner in which the diaper 50 is folded over the tapes 45 and 45 causes the diaper 50 to lie flat and thus it will not chafe a child wearing the trunks I0.
It is thus seen that the diaper 50 may be disposed within the trunks lll as described and the trunks with the diaper therein may be placed around the body of a child and secured by the snap fasteners 40 as shown in Figure l, and the diaper 5B will be held securely in place without the aid of pins and the like and will be hidden from view by the trunks I0. When it is desired to change the diaper 50 it may be easily removed from the tapes 45 and 45 and a fresh diaper may be folded over the tapes 45 and 45' in the manner described.
It is thus seen that there is provided a childs garment having means therein for removably securing a diaper or the like in such a manner as to hold the diaper securely and at the same time prevent the same from chang the body of the wearer and which diaper may be easily removed and a fresh diaper inserted within the garment.
In the drawings and specification there has been set forth a preferred embodiment of the invention, and although specific terms are employed, they are used in a generic and descriptive sense only, and not for purposes of limitation, the scope of the invention being dened in the claims.
1. In a childs garment having front and back portions, means for securing a diaper therein comprising a Pair of tapes secured to and depending from the front and back portions of the garment, and a plurality of spaced transverse tapes secured to the depending tapes whereby the opposed ends of a diaper may be folded over the transverse tapes at the front and back portions of the garment.
2. In a childs garment having front and back portions and being of hour glass formation in plan, snap fastening means on the edges of the garment for securing the front and back portions together, spaced depending tapes secured to and depending from the front and back portions of the garment, and a plurality of spaced transverse tapes secured to the depending tapes whereby a diaper may have its ends folded over and under the transverse tapes at the front and back of the garment to hold the diaper in position within the garment.
3. In a childs garment having a front and back portions and being of hour glass formation in plan, means for adjustably securing the back and front portions together, a pair of spaced depending tapes secured at one of their ends to the inner front portion of the garment and depending therefrom, a second pair of depending tapes secured at one of their ends to the inner back portion of the garment, the other ends of said first and second pair of tapes being free, a plurality of spaced transverse tapes secured to and extending between the rst depending tapes, and a plurality of spaced transverse tapes secured to and extending between the second dependingr tapes, whereby a diaper may have its ends folded over and under the transverse tapes at the front and the back of the garment to hold said diaper securely within the garment.
