Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed June 12,19 015. Serial lla- 321,355.

To a, whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JEREMIAH A. ScinvEN,

a citizen oi the United States, and a resident and State of New York, have invented cer- I tain new and useful Improvements in Undergarments, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to so-called union ment of this character in which substantially inelastic portions are combined with elastic insertions, thus producing a well-fitting garment yielding readily to the wearers movements.

My invention will now be described in detail with relerence to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a front view of an undergarment eiuhodying my improvements; Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of a portion of the garment, showing it open; Fig. 3 is a rear View Figs. 1 to 3. Other constructionaof the waist portion are explained hereinafter.

.as above described, are made of re atively i inelastic material, Which may be the same material as that of which the upper sections A, A, the sleeve F, and the strips C, C are made. These'leg sections E form part of tubular leg portions which may be provided with elastic anklets E at their lower ends.

of the garment; Fig. 4 is an enlarged partial view of the waist and crotch portion; Fig. 5

vention: and Fig. 6 is a section on line 6-6 of Fig. 5.

The union garment comprises a body portion with sleeves and leg portions attached sections. A. A the front edges of which are The side edges of the leg sections E are entirely on the rear side of the garment when the latter 'is closed, see Figs. 3 and 4, and even when the garment is open, as in Figs. 2 and 5, only a small portion of said edges is visible from the front. These edges are given an undulating shape, as shown in Fig. 3, and between them are secured elastic insertions H, with their ribs or wales running i preferably lengthwise of the leg portions.

From the lower endsof the edge strips (1,-(1, to the waist band, elastic crotch strips J, J, extend along the upper portions of the inner edges of the leginsertions H, to which they aregsecured. The upper ends of these crotch strips overlap and are secured to the waist portion D. between the upper ends of the leg insertions H.

Instead of having the ribs or wales ofth'e waist portion D run lengthwise thereof as in Fig: 1, theymay run diagonally, and other constructions may be employed; for instance, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6, I may employ a waist portion consisting of two elastic ayers D" D, with the diagonal ribs .of one running crosswise'of the diagonal ribs of the other. These two layers may be unconnected in their body portion, as shown. The

diagonal wales give the'waist portion great elasticity, yet the crossing of the wales will i hnnt the movement to a certain extent and prevent excessive stretching. As shown in i Fig. 4, instead of, employing a continuous waist portion, I may continue the back in sertion, G, across the waist line and make it integral with, or'at least contiguous to, the leg insertions, H;

It will be noticed that the garment maybe opened entirely in front from the neck portion to the crotch, and the opening in the back, from. the crotch to the waist portion,

waist portion, an elastic back insertion extending upward from said waist portion to the neck opening, inelastic upper sections forming the upper body portion of the garment and'connected with said back insertion,

elastic leg insertions extending downward from the waist portion, inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg port-ions in connection with said leg insertions, the garment being divided in front from the neck opening to the crotch and in the back from the crotchto the waist portion, inelastic edge strips extending alongthe edges of the front opening of the garment, and elastic crotch strips extending along the edges of the rear opening of the garment. i v

A union garment comprising an elastic waist portion, an elastic back insertion extending upward from said waist 'portion to the neck opening, inelastic upper sections forming the upper body portion of the garment and connected with said back insertion, elastic leg insertions extending downward from the waist portion, and inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg portions together with the said leg insertions.

3 A union garment comprising an elastic waist portion, an elastic back insertion extending upward from said waist portion to the neck opening, inelastic upper sections forming the upper body portion of the garment and connected with said back insertion, elastic leg insertions, extending downward from themaist portion and spaced from cach other attlic waist portion, inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg portions in connection with said leg insertions, the garment being divided in front from the neck opening to the crotch and in the back from the crotch to the waist portion, inelastic edge strips extending along the edges of the front opening of the garmmit, and elastic crotch strips extending along the edges of the rear opening of the garment. the upper ends of said crotch strips being overlapped and secured to the waist portion between the upper ends of the leg insertions 4. Aunion garment comprising an u'pperor body section; an elastic waist portion, elastic leg insertions extending downward from the Waist portion, and inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg portions in connection with said leg insertions.

5. A. union garment comprising an upper or body section, an elastic waist portion,- elastic leg insertions extending downward from the waist portion, inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg portions in connection with said leg insert-ions, the garment being divided' in front from the neck opening to the crotch and in the back from the crotch to the waist portion, inelastic edge strips extending along the edges of the front opening of the garment, and elastic crotch strips extending along theedges of the rear opening of the garment.

Aunion garment. comprising an upper or body section, an elastic waist portion, elastic leg insertions extending downward from the waist portion-and spaced from each other at the waist portion, inelastic leg sections forming tubular leg portions in connection with saiclcleg insertions, the garment being divided inront from the neck opening to the crotch and in the back from the crotch to the waist portion inelastic edge strips extending along the edges of the front opening of the garment, and elastic crotch strips extending along the edges of the rear 0 ening of the gar ment, the upper ends of sai crotch strips being overlapped and secured to the waist portion between the upper ends ofthe leg insertions.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
