US D690903 S1
An improved, substantially elongated gusset and/or crotch panel, incorporated into garments for humans' lower bodies. This novel, uniquely shaped, and scaled gusset significantly enhances wearers' comfort by eliminating seams, material transitions, stitching, and other mechanisms or methods of attachment from within the boundaries of a defined protected region, which coincides with the wearer's sensitive genital area. The gusset is preferably constructed from at least one layer of material, and may feature additional layers. In preferred embodiments, the elongated gusset and/or crotch panel is incorporated into girl/boy short-style undergarments, bikini-style undergarments, thong-style undergarments, pajama-bottom style garments, and other lower-body garments.
The original ornamental design for a thong gusset, substantially as shown and described.
FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a thong gusset of the present invention, as it may be used in an undergarment (the broken lines shown on the undergarment represent unclaimed features);
FIG. 2 is a plan view of the claimed thong gusset design;
FIG. 3 is a front elevational view of the claimed thong gusset design;
FIG. 4 is a rear elevational view of the claimed thong gusset design; and,
FIG. 5 is a right side elevational view of the claimed thong gusset design (the left side elevational view is a mirror image thereof).
