ApplicationJune 3, 1949, Serial No. 96,910 1 Claim. (Cl. 2-70) 2 l This invention relates to holders, is particu larly concerned with absorbent pad holders, is of the said folded tapes having three gripper sockets,` the said gripper sockets of the folded more particularly concerned with holders for absorbent pads adapted for use on children, and is most particularly concerned with a combina tion shirt and Vabsorbent insert for use in chil tapes being disposed on the outside of the said pad, each of the said folded tapes having a single gripper stud, the said gripper studs being dis posed on the inside of the said pad, the said pad being secured to the said shirt by means of the said gripper sockets and gripper studs, and I- am now able to avoid the disadvantages of the prior some of use but because they involve the use of 10 art and am able readily to accomplish the objects set forth. > pins for attaching them to other garment inem While some of the more outstanding features, bers, shirts, for example, worn by the child. and advantages of this invention have been here Another serious objection> to the use of conven dren’s wear. i , , There are serious objections to the use ofcon ventional diapers since they _are not. onlycurnber tional diapers resides in _the fact that the diaper inbefore indicated, others will become apparent must be capable of absorbing moisture. from the following disclosures, taken in conjunc tion with the accompanying drawing, in which: -Fig. 1 is an inside view of the holder of my Since absorption provision must be had in the diaper, . the entire diaper is made of highly absorbent material and this adds to the bulkiness of the invention, spread out. diaper. The conventional diaper is therefore bulky, is diñicult to attach and is obviously un 20 of the Fig. 1. comfortable in wear. » i It is therefore an object of the present inven tion to provide a holder. It is a further object to provide a holder for absorbent pads. It is still a further object to. provide a holder for absorbent inserts. which has provision for ease of attachment. It is a further object of the i ~ Fig. 2 is a section taken along the lines 2--2 . ‘ Fig. 3 -is `a view showing the holder attached, in part, to an undershirt of a child. , sockets attached thereto, the said sockets being disposed frontally and substantially near the sides of the said shirt, a rectangular pad, the said pad As shown in the Fig. l the rectangular pad I has a strip of tape 4 sewed to each of the two corners at one end of the said pad. The two strips of tape which Will hereinafter be referred to as tapes‘are sewn to the inside of the pad I. The inside of the pad is designated as the side of the pad which in use contacts the body of the child. Each of the tapes 4 have a pair of gripper studs I2, and I5, secured to the tapes and to the pad I. Each of the other two corners of the pad I have a strip of tape 5 sewed to the outside of the pad I. Each of the strips of tape 5, which will be referred to as tapes, have three gripper sockets Il, I3, and III, attached to them. The said gripper sockets are secured to the tapes and to the pad I and the socket portion of the grippers having a rectangular pocket attached on the in are on the outside of the pad I. Each of the two present invention to provide a combination shirt and absorbent insert holder adapted for wear by children which is of simple construction, is « light in weight and affords comfort in wear. I have now discovered and invented a combin ation garmènt and pad for holding a moisture absorbing insert comprising an undershirt, the said undershirt having a plurality of gripper ' side thereto, the said pocket being sewed along 40 tapes 5 have a single gripper stud 8 attached to them and to the pad I. The studs are attached to the inside of the pad I. A rectangular strip of cloth is sewed along its two long sides to the terial folded upon itself a plurality of times, the pad I and this is designated a pocket 2. The said insert being held within the said pocket, the said insert being substantially equidistant 45 pocket is open at each of its short ends. A mois ture absorbent cloth 3 is folded upon itself' several from the outer edges of the said pad, a pair of its two wide edges to the said pad, an insert, the said insert comprising a length of absorbent ma times, and is inserted within the said pocket. tapes, each of the said tapes being sewed to the It will be noted that the tapes 5 are folded over said pad and being at opposite corners from each in a V-shaped manner before being sewn to the other, a plurality of gripper studs, a plurality of gripper sockets, each of the said tapes having 50 Pad I. The shirt S has a pair of tapes 1 sewed to the a pair of the said gripper studs secured thereto, outside of the front part of the shirt. Each the said studs being disposed on the inside of the of the said tapes ‘i has a pair of gripper sockets said pad, a pair of folded tapes, each of the said 9 and IE), attached to the tapes and to the shirt. folded tapes being sewed to the said pad and In use the shirt 6 is placed on the child so being at opposite corners from each other, each 55 2,566,844 3 4 that the strips ‘I are disposed in the front and near the sides of the shirt. The child is laid down (face up) and the pad I is placed beneath the child’s body, and the lower edge Ia of the pad is pulled upwardly between the child’s legs. Each of the studs 8 are now inserted into one of the sockets on each of the tapes on the shirt. Since I claim: A combination garment for holding a moisture absorbing insert comprising an undershìrt, the said undershirt having a plurality of gripper sock ets attached thereto, the said sockets being dis posed frontally and substantially near- the sides of the said shirt, a rectangular pad, the said pad ' each of the tapes 'I has two sockets, 9, the upper having a rectangular pocket attached on the in~ socket, and I0, the lower socket, the studs 8 side thereto, the said pocket being sewed along its are inserted into either the lower or the upper 10 two longitudinal edges to the said pad, a pair of sockets, depending on the size of the child. The two other corners of the pad I are now folded over the corners nearest to the edge Ia, and the stud I5 is fastened by inserting it into the socket I4, and the stud I2 is fastened by inserting it into the socket I3 or into the socket II. It will be noted that if the stud I2 is fastened into the socket I3 the fit of the pad will be more snug than if the said stud was fastened to the socket II. When the insert and a portion of the pad is Imade moist, the studs I2, and I5 are unfastened from their respective sockets, the two corners are folded back, the two studs 8 are unfastened vfrom their respective sockets, and the pad is re moved from the child. The insert 3 may be re moved from the pocket of the pad and be laun-` dered, while another pad and-insert is attached _to the same shirt. I Wish particularly to point out that the pad tapes, each of the said tapes being sewed to the said pad and being disposed at the rear corners, two pairs of gripper studs, each of the‘said tapes having a pair of the said grip per studs secured thereto, the said studs be ing secured to the inside of the said pad, a pair of folded strips of tape, each of the said strips of tape being folded upon itself forming a substantially 67 degree angle, each of the said folded strips of tape being sewn to the said Ypad and being disposed at the front corners, siii-grip-_per sockets, each of the said folded strips of tape having three of the said gripper sockets, the said gripper sockets of the folded strips of tape being disposed on the outside of the said pad'and being selectively engageable with the said pairs of gripper studs on the rear corners of thel pad respectively, each of the said folded Vstrips of tape having a single gripper stud„the said last and theinsert may be changed in a very short 30 named gripper studs lbeing disposedl on the inside time, there is no possibility of causing injury to ofthe said pad, the said studs and the said sock-4 the child due to the absence of safety pins, and etsßbeing secured to the said strips of tape by con even an inexperienced person is able to make the ventional means, the said pad being securedto change. Y the said shirt by means of the `said gripper sockets I wish further particularly to ypoint out that » to provide the moisture absorption that I am thereon and the _said gripper studs on the folded strips of tape. able to obtain with the use of my invention, re quires a relatively small amount of material, and there i's-furthermore substantially no bulkiness to the same. Having clearly set _forth the construction, utili ty and advantages of my invention I wish partic ularly to state that it will be apparent that changes in the details of the construction and -arrangement of the variousI members of the in 45 ~ ' Y LILLIAN L.
