GATAMIENIAL DRAW'ERS.

' for use during the menstruation period.

The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same,

'which will be more fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the improvement; Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the same, and Fig. 3 is a front elm Bdrm of the improvement in an open position.

The body A of the drawers is provided with a waistband B having in its rear portion a draw string C for adjusting the Waistband B to the size of the waist of the wearer, and the open or divided front of the body A is adapted to be closed byafastening device D, such as a vertical row of buttons and buttonholes on the overlapping sides of the front of the body A.

The legs E and E are divided lengthwise at the front and are adapted to be closed by fastening devices F, such as buttons and button-holes, and portions of the said legs E, E form integral parts of a front flap Gforming a continuation of the seat H and the crotch I of the drawers. fastened to the front of t e drawers by a fastening device, preferably by providing the flap with a button-hole J, for engagement with one of the buttons of the fastenlng device D. Thus by the arrangement described the flap G may be buttoned ow or higher up, to draw the crotch I as tight as desired. On the inside of the seat H and the inner side of the flap G are secured 100 s K, K on which are tied the ends of a pad of an absorbent material such as absorbenteotto'n'; the said pad Lbeing adapted to receive the discharge during the menstrufi tion period. a

Tightening straps P,P are secured on the outer side of the seat H and are crossed under the crotch I and drawn through loops held engaged with a button R, secured-to the waistband B at or near the top portion there of, as will be readily understood by reference 1 i to Fig. 1.

Itwill also be seen that the drawers with the sheet 0 removed and the pad L detached can b .1 I
