Where sheet rubber is utilized as in the
Harsh construction, it is desirable that the rubber
shall be anchored in such manner that the rubber
. tends to lie ?at, not only when the garment is in
use, but also when the garment is being laun
20 dered. To this end, it is desirable that the strip ‘
b of sheet rubber be anchored in place so that it
does not tend to move or slide to one side of the
sheath, where if it were ‘not anchored‘ it will
take the form of a roll of sheet rubber. Where
the rubber is anchored to the sheath in such man
ner that both sides of the sheath are anchored
together, there is less ?exibility than where free
dom of movement is allowed between the side
walls of the sheet.
Another problem which comes into the manu
facture of devices of this character is the problem
of simplicity. If a large number of seams are
required, the cost of sewing becomes an element
which must be considered.
Inthe present invention, a strip of rubber is
of cloth with two separate sides that are free
'to move within limits relative to each other.
It is recognized that the present invention may 15
be‘carried out in constructions other than those
speci?cally disclosed herewith, and, therefore,
the disclosure is to be understood as illustrative
and not‘ in the limiting sense.

the above speci?ed problems.
The sheath may be formed in various ways, but
45 preferably, the completed device is formed by
securing a strip of very elastic thin sheet rubber to
a face 01‘ the garment material by the use of
stretchable sewing. The edge of the garment to
which the strip of rubber is anchored is then
folded over and sewed by stretchable ‘stitching.
Preferably, the band is formed directly on ‘the
garment material. However, where desirable it
may be made as a separate band. The strip of
sheet rubber may be sewed adjacent the edge of
.55 the garment material and when the material is

Referring more specifically to the drawing,

withstand laundering operations and thereby
does not deteriorate due to laundry operations,
or to perspiration from the body of the wearer.

The above constructions are simple in manu

very satisfactory elastic band for many articles
