Title: BRASSIERE SUPPORT
Abstract:
The brassiere (2) has a bendable support member (16) disposed therein and a stiffer shock-absorbing resilient member (106) attached to the support member and the brassiere. A woman's breast bends the support member (16) outwardly along the bendable line (21) to a first position (100) and the shock-absorbing resilient member (106) is extended from a rest position to a first extended position and a lower end (114) of the brassiere (2) is pressed against the body. The breast then applies a load on the support member (16) and to bend the support member (16) further outwardly from the first position (100) to a second position (102) and the resilient member (106) is extended from the first extended position to a second extended position. The member (106) and the support member (16) provide a pulling force that is greater than the load of the breast and the support member is then bent inwardly passed the first position (100) and the resilient member (106) is retracted.
