' 1Claim. (eta-42) This invention relates tonew and useful immovements in ladies undergarments, particularly brassieres.
' The principal object of the invention is the provision, in a brassiere, of pocket means adapted to receive sachets or other fragrant devices for combatting perspiration.
Another object of the invention is to locate said pocket means at those portions of the brassiere Worn immediately adjacent the body areas most inclined to perspire.
Still another object of the invention is to construct the pocket means in a simple and economical manner and in such a way that the form and comfortable fit of the brassiere are not interfered with. I
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref--. erence will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawings forming amaterial part of this disclosure: 7
Fig. 1 is a frontal perspective view of the brassire of the invention asthe same appears when in use.
Fig. 2 is an inside elevational view of the brassire with the rear portion thereof broken away.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view on line 33 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal sectional'view on line 5-5 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 6 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view on line'66 of Fig. 2.
Fig. '7 is a view similar to Fig. 2, but illustrates a modified form of the invention.
Referring to Fig. 1, the invention is shown as embodied in an otherwise conventional brassiere having shoulder straps l0 joining the bust supporting portion thereof with the bands H which are secured together behind the wearers back. The front bust supporting portion of the brassiere consists of a pair of bust pockets l2 each consisting of a plurality of outer segments l3 of suitable material and also a plurality of lining segments I74, see also Figs. 2 and 4. Preferably the outer and lining segments l3 and M are secured together by concentrically circular stitching I5. The back straps II are secured to the bust pockets 12 by means of tapes l6 which binds the side and bottom portions of said pockets, see Figs. 2, 4 and. 5.
' Between, and extending partially; beneath the bust pockets I 2; ,isg-aconnecting ;piece l I of double thickness.- s i pi ce.
being securedto the pockets by the tapes [6. Between either end of the lower portion of connecting piece I! and the end of the adjacent back strap H a strip l8 of adhesive material is secured, said strip also being secured to the associated pocket by the tapes i6, see Figs. 1 and 2.
According-to the invention the outer layer of connecting piece I! extends only a short distance upward between the bust pockets l2 and the inner layer extends only about half way up between the said pockets. Preferably the upper edge of said outer layer is of V-shape and has secured thereto a strip 20 which extends upward between the pockets I2, see Figs. 1, 2 and3. At its side edges the strip 20 is secured to the aforementioned tapes 16 and at its upper end is secured to a tape 2| extending across the upper edges of the bust pockets l2, see also Fig. 4.
The inner layer of piece H has secured to its upper edge a strip '22 which at its sides is secured to the tapes l6. At its upper end the strip 22 is left free, the edge thereof being turned down as shown in Fig. 3. Thus a pocket 23 is formed between the bust pockets [2, said pocket 23 bein adapted to receive a sachet or other fragrant device to combat perspiration odor.
It is to be pointed out that the pocket 23 is so located as to be situated immediately adjacent an area of the brassieres wearer, that is, subject to considerable perspiration; that is, the area between the breasts. Thus, the sachet placed in the pocket 23 is ideally located for obtaining the maximum effect therefrom.
There are two other areas subject to intense perspiration that are convenient to the brassiere, namely the armpits of the wearer. Therefore the invention also provides a sachet pocket adjacent each said armpit. To this'end a pair of fabric strips 24 are doubled on themselves and each has its end secured beneath the respective tapes l6 at the outer edge of one of the bust pockets [2, see Figs. 2, 5 and 6. The lower edges of said strips 24 are secured together by stitching 25 to form pockets 26 each adapted to receive a sachet or the like. It will readily be seen that when the brassiere is worn, the pockets 26 are located immediately below the wearers armpits where a sachet or the like placed therein will be most effective.
According to a modified form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 7 the pockets 26 described above may be located in any desired position rather than at the outer edges of the bust pockets. In Fig. 7 the pockets 26 are located at the top edges of the pockets I2, but it is to be understood that they may be located in any desired position.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions. herein disclosed, and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United tates Letters Patent is: V
In combination, a brassiere having-adjacent bust receiving pockets having outer edges, binding tapes stitched in position about the outer edges of said pockets, an elongated fabric strip for each pocket having free end edges, said strips being-folded upon themselves aligning their free end edges, said strips-having their free end edges inserted in position between said'po'ckets and REFERENCES CITED The following references are of record in the file of this patent:
