Dec. 25, 1962 G. M. svoJsE HIP PANTS SUPPORTER Filed y 18, 1960 $5026? fix, gym INVENTOR.

hired atent v 3,069,691 Hill? PANTS S'UPPORTER George M. Svojse, 20763 Hartland St., Apt. ll, Qanoga Park, Calif. Filed July 18, 196i Ser. No. 43,693 2 Qlaiins. (Cl. 2337) a supporter that can be manufactured economically.

Still a further object of the present invention is the provision of a supporter that is simple in construction.

Other objects and advantages reside in the particular structure of the invention, as will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art upon reference to the attached drawings in conjunction with the following specification, wherein the invention is shown, described and claimed.

In the drawing:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of the supporter, showing the inner leg and the outer leg, the latter having an aperture shaped like an I.

FIGURE 2 is a side elevational view, showing the V shape of the supporter and the curved portion thereof that fits the hips.

FIGURE 3 is a sectional view showing how the sup porter is anchored to the pants of a wearer.

FIGURE 4 is a general view of the supporter on a pair of pants, showing the outer leg on the outside, and the inner leg on the inside.

Referring now more particularly to the drawing, the supporter 1 is made of one piece of clear flexible acetate, cut narrower at the top and rounded off to form an outer leg 4 as seen in FIGURE I. Said outer leg has a longitudinally extending aperture 2 shaped like an I. 3 in FIG- URE 1 indicates small slots in the corners of said aperture to accommodate belt loops of diiferent widths. The outer leg is folded forwardly to form the supporter in the shape of a V. Part way down the inner leg, the supporter is curved slightly backward as indicated at 6 in FIGURE 2, so as to fit the hips.

The lower part of the inner leg is shaped like the back of a spoon to fit the hip bone. Number 5 indicates a series of knobs, as shown in FIGURES 1 and 3, near the Efihhfihl Patented Dec. 25, 1.962

bottom of the inner leg, that will provide a frictional drag against the garment.

The method for attachin the supporter to a pair of pants is shown in FIGURE 3. iii shows the pants and 7 shows the shirt. 6 is the curved portion of the supporter in place over the waistband. 5 shows the belt loop inserted through the aperture in outer leg 4. Then the customary belt 9, inserted through the belt loop 3, thus anchors the supporter to the pants.

When the customary belt is buckled, pressure is put on the outer leg 4, as seen in FIGURE 3, causing pressure on the inner leg 6, FEGURE 2, to tit snugly to body, and rest on the hip bone.

It is therefore now understood that the present invention fully accomplishes its intended purpose and is well adopted for practical cenditions of manufacture and use.

While there has been illustrated and described the present form of construction, these are capable of variations and modifications without departing from the spirit of the invention. It is therefore understood that various changes, variations and modifications are within the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the claims.

Having thus fully described the invention and illus trated its use, what is claimed as new and desired to be protected by Letters Patent is:

l. A supporter comprising a V-shaped plate of clear flexible acetate, one of the legs of said v-shaped plate having converging side edges and a relatively narrow free end, said leg having an elongated aperture formed therein extending longitudinally of the leg, the other leg of said ti-shaped plate having diverging side edges connected by a relatively wide free end, the central part of said second leg being curved rearwardly away from the first leg and the lower free end of the second leg being spoon shaped and being provided with frictional means extending outwardly therefrom to engage a garment pressed thereagainst.

2. A supporter as set forth in claim 1 in which the aperture is I-shaped so that it will accommodate belt loops of varying widths.
