GIRDLE PANTY GAR'IIER BELT Filed Sept. 28, 1954 INVENTOR. WiHiomRosenthoI ATTORNEY United rates Patent GIRDLE PANTY GARTER BELT William Rosentha], Bayville, N. Y., assignor to Maiden Form Brassiere Company, Inc., New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application September 28, 1954, Serial No. 458,858

2 Claims. (Cl. 2-33) The object of this invention is to provide a single garment which will have the operating effect on the wearer of a girdle, a panty, and a garter belt. Certain problems exist in the construction of the garment which are overcome by means of the present invention.

The invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. l is a plan view, partly broken away, showing an embodiment of the invention with the front and back members flattened down;

Fig. 2 is a rear plan view of the structure; and

Fig. 3 is a vertical section on the line 33, Fig. 1.

My garment consists of a girdle member, preferably in front and back sections 1 and 2 which are seamed at the sides as indicated by the dotted lines 3, Fig, 1. The girdle 3 is constructed primarily, or as a whole, of elastic material which will have a stretch in the lateral direction of the grament, but which preferably has little or no vertical stretch.

It will be seen that the garment is so cut as to have curved and gathered leg-receiving portions at 4, and that the margins of these portions at the back of the garment extend outwardly of the leg margins at the front of the garment, as shown clearly in Fig. 1. The elastic girdle at its back area is cut with a deep V-formation, into which is seamed an insert 5 of soft fabric, which insert extends upwardly in band formation and is connected at the line 6, Fig. 1, with a vertical carrying and reinforcing member 7 which may be seamed to the front of the girdle portion along the dotted lines 8, Fig. 1. In any event, the carrying and reinforcing member 7 is secured to the garment, and preferably by a horizontal seam 9 at the top of the front girdle portion.

It will be noted that the soft fabric insert 5 is joined to the supporting and reinforcing band 7 by an intermediate longitudinally elastic member 10.

The front and rear areas of the girdle carry garter supporting straps 11.

2,763,008 Patented Sept. 18, 1956 From the above description, it will be seen that the leg portions rise in a curve and the lower straight edge of the front of the garment is pulled down by the straps applied thereto, of which one is shown in Fig. l, the area to the right thereof being in a straight line continuing until the curvature is the same as that on the lefthand side of Fig. 1.

Having described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is as follows:

1. A girdle panty garter belt consisting of a girdle of elastic material having a back portion and a front portion directly joined together, each said portion at its outer lower ends being cut away in a curve, and the front portion being formed at its bottom with a centrally disposed substantially horibontal straight edge joining the curved areas, garter straps carried by said front portion at the ends of said bottom edge thereof, and garter straps carried by said back portion, the back portion, when the garment is flat upon a support, extending downwardly for a substantially greater distance than the front portion, an insert of soft material having an inverted V-shaped margin seamed to a corresponding cut out area of the said back portion of the girdle, and a carrying and reinforcing band underlying the said front portion of the girdle, said band extending for the full height of the front portion of the girdle, and being secured to said front portion, the front margin of said insert being connected to the lower edge of said reinforcing band.

2. A girdle panty garter belt consisting of a girdle of elastic material having a back portion and a front portion directly joined together, each said portion at its outer lower ends being cut away in a curve, and the front portion being formed at its bottom with a centrally disposed substantially horizontal straight edge joining the curve areas, garter straps carried by said front portion at the ends of said bottom edge thereof, and garter straps carried by said back portion, the back portion, when the garment is flat upon a support, extending downwardly for a substantially greater distance than the front portion an insert of soft material having an inverted V-shaped margin seamed to a corresponding cut out area of the said back portion of the girdle, a carrying and reinforcing band underlying said front portion of the girdle, said band extending for the full height of said front portion, and being secured thereto, and an elastic member joining the front margin of said insert of soft material to the lower edge of said carrying and reinforcing band.
