COMBINATION SHIELD Filed Nov. 29, 1927 Patented Oct 8, v 1929 maamjrunsr, or LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK 'counma'r'ron SHIELD vApplication filed November 29, 1927. Serial No. 286,426,
This invenion relates to dress shields with particular reference to the type used in the wearing apparel of women, in which it is de sired to completely conceal the existence of the shield.
An object of the invention is to provide a dress shield having flaps-made of sheet rubber or rubberized cloth to lie against the cloth of a dress, and two flaps or leaves made of linen or a porous cloth to contact with the body of the wearer of the dress, the linen flaps being detachable so that they may be removed and washed from time to time.
A further object of the invention is to provide a dress shield which is simple and inexpensive to manufacture, and at the same time has a pleasingappearance and may be attached to a dress, kimona or other article of wearing apparel at the armplts, so that it will be completely concealed in the outside appearance of the apparel.
A further object is to provide a dress shield suitable for use in short sleeved dresses and which will have the same advantages of the shield used in long sleeved dresses.
These and other like objects are accomplished by the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, hereinafter described and shown in the accompanying drawing, forming a part ofv this disclosure, and in which Figure 1 is a view showing the dress shield as used in a long sleeved dress.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the dress shield.
Figure?) is a cross sectional view of the shield shown in Figure 2. t
Figure 4 is a cross sectional view of the modified form shown in Figure 5 taken on line 4-4.
Figure 5 is a modified form of the shield for use in short sleeved garments. I
Fig. 6 illustrates the dress shleld inverted and shows in sectional detail view how the different parts of the shield coact with the garment parts.
Referring to the drawings, in Figure 2, the novel dress shield is shown, having support ing strip 6 made of linen or a similar suitable fabric. To the strip 6 is sewed, or oined by means of snap fasteners, the flaps or wings 7 and 8, which may be made of sheet rubber,
rubberized cloth or a similar waterproof material. The flap 8 is folded over at 16 and then'secured to the strip 6. Positioned within the folded flap 8 ,is a sheet of linen or a similar porous material,
which. is folded upon itself to form the two moisture absorbing flaps 9 and 1 0, and fastened to the folded rubber flap 8, by means of snap fasteners 17. Snap fasteners 11 and 12 are provided to hold adjacent flaps ofrubber 7 and linen together, be sewed together, if sodesired.
In use, waterproof flaps 7 and 8 are placed in the garment so that they will lie next to the cloth of the garment, leaving the porous flaps 9 and 10 exposed to the skin of the wearer, in order that the flaps 9 and lO may absorb the perspiration of the body.
The shield may be permanently-sewed into the garment, or, it may be detachably positioned therein by means of snap fasteners 18, which cooperate with snap fasteners in the I dress.
' Figure 6, the supporting strip ,6 is sewed to the inner seam connecting sleeve and garment, then rubber flap 7 is turned into the sleeve to engage orlie close to the fabric of thesleeve, and porous flap 10 is then also turned into the sleeve to engage flap 7 and the skin of the or these two flaps may wearer, flaps 7 and 10 are then held together by the snap fasteners 11 and 12 or otherwise. Waterproof flap 8 is then engaged with the fabric of the garment whereupon porous flap 9 is folded against flap 8 and comes to lie next to the skin of the wearer, and fastened tothe same.
It is apparent from the disclosure herein that a convenient and pleasing shield has been presented to absorb body perspiratiomwhich is so obnoxious in certain surroundings. At the same time, the shield maybe inserted in the garment without givin any outward indication of its resence. is well known,
5 continued absor tion of perspiration leaves a pun ent odor in shields and the novel shield A herein presented provides means for disassembling it so that it may be frequently washed and maintained fresh.
From the foregoing, it will be seen that a simple device for this purpose has been disclosed in the'preierred form of its embodiment but it is not desired to restrict the details to the exact instruction, it being obvious that changes, not involving the exercise of invention, may be made wlthout conflicting with the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is 2- I o x i r A dress shield comprising a base strip, two waterproof flaps detachably secured to said basestrip, afold at the upper portion of one ofthe flaps, a s eet of porous material fold- 25. ed on itself to form two flaps inserted in said fold and detachably secured to said waterproof flap, and means for detachably securing the shield to a garment. r In witnessw ereof I have aflixed-my signature. 7 1
