(0001] This application claims priority ofU.S. Provisional

REVERSffiLE SLEEVED GARMENT ACCESSORY; U.S.
Provisional Application Sec. No. 61/278,647, filed on Oct. 9,
2009, titledREVERSffiLE SLEEVED GARMENT ACCES-

filed Feb. 3, 2009 titled ATTACHABLE SLEEVES; which
applications are all incorporated by reference in this applica-
tion in their entirety.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
[0002] 1. Field of the Invention
(0003] This invention relates to a reversible sleeved gar-
ment, and in particular, to a reversible sleeved garment that
may be worn to enhance sleeveless or strapless garments.
(0004] 2. Related Art
[0005] Several attempts have been made to create sleeved
undergarments for individuals to wear over conventional
brassieres (or having integrated brassieres) for the purpose of
concealing or covering a wearer's arms. The undergarments
currently available are not, however, designed to create the
appearance of being part of the gannent with which they are
worn. The garments currently on the market include unsightly
seams that do not match the garment design with which they
are worn or do not provide the correct type of coverage over
one's chest. As such, the portion of the garment covering
one's chest may be visible when wom with sleeveless or
strapless garments. Further, no garments on the market cur-
rently allow for a wearer to reverse the garment to vary the
style of the garment and vary the level of coverage across the
chest area for the wearer.
(0006] Accordingly, a need exists for a garment a c c ~ s o r y
that can be worn under any type of sleeveless or strapless
garment to create an appearance that the garment accessory is
part of the overlying garment. A need further exists for a
garment accessory that does not have visible seams and that
can be worn with both low cut and high neckline garments
without exposing the garment accessory through the front of
the overlying garment. A need further exists for a garment
accessory that enhances both the original garment, conceals
the arms of the wearer, while at the same time expanding a
woman's wardrobe. By concealing the arms of the wearer,
arm flab, loose skin, tattoos and age spots may also be con-
cealed to make the wearer's arm appear slimmer, firmer, and
more youthful. Finally, a need further exiSts for a sleeved
garment accessory that not only can be worn under any type
of sleeveless or strapless garment to create the appearance
that it is part of the overlying garment and that covers the
wearer's arms, but that also provides support to the midriff
section of the wearer to create a slimmer fit.
SUMMARY
(0007] The invention provides a reversible gannent acces-
sory comprised at least partially of an elastic material permit-
ting the garment to stretch. The reversible garment accessory
includes a circular torso member having a first face section
and a second face section and two opposing sleeve members
extending therefrom. The first face section is designed to
1
Aug. 12, 2010
provide minimal coverage for a wearer and the second face
section is designed to provide fuller coverage, such that the
garment can be worn with either the first face section or the
second face section facing forward over the chest of the
wearer to conceal the garment accessory under an 9Wrlying
garment, as desired, depending upon the neckline and cut of
the overlying garment.
(0008] In one example of an implementation, the garment
accessory further includes an elastic band member that
encircles the torso. The elastic band member may be a one
piece elastic member that is permanently affixed at opposing
ends through stitching to create a unitary elastic band encir-
cling the torso and that requires the garment to be pulled over
or stepped into. Alternatively, the elastic band may include a
closure device to be secured together by the user, such as a
clip, clasp, hooks, or other fastening mechanism.
(0009] In another example of an implementation, the gar-
ment accessory may further include a midriff or bodice sec-
tion that may be made of a material to shape the midriff or
torso of the wearer.
(0010] Other devices, apparatus, systems, methods, fea-
tures and advantages of the invention will be or will become
apparent to one with skill in the art upon examination of the
following figures and detailed description. It is intended that
all such additional systems, methods, features and advantages
be included within this description, be within the scope of the
invention, and be protected by the accompanying claims.

[0051] The gannent accessory 100, 200, 300 and 400 may
be made from a variety of materials and may be designed
specifica1ly to match a particular type of garment or garment
line. For example, the garment accessory 100, 200, 300 and
400 may bemadefroma light-weightmaterial, such as a thin,
light wear, sheer or semi-sheer stretch material. By way of
example, the material may be made at least partially from a
lycra/spandex blend and may be constructed as either a four-
way or two-way stretch material. The garment may further
include other materials in addition to lycm and/or spandex,
such as cotton, and may even be constructed partially or
entirely of a non-stretch material. The expandability of the
materiul of the garment accessory may further vary, and may
be designed of stretch such that one garment can be worn by
women of varying sizes, such as XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL,
or may be designed of more contrasting material to fit the
wearer based upon standard children and women's clothing
sizes, including plus sizes. The selected material may have
the versatile potential to keep the wearer cool when it is made
:from an open weaveorthin sheer fabric, yet have the potential
to keep the wearer warm in colder weather, if it is made from
a heavier weight fabric. The garment accessory 100, 200, 300
and 400 may further be constructed :from fabrics having vari-
ous designs, thicknesses and colors. For example, the gar-
ment accessory 100, 200, 300 and 400 may be constructed
:from a highly versatile solid or sheer black fabric, which may
be capable of being paired with a large number of sleeveless
and strapless garments. Further, the garment accessory 100,
200, 300 and400 may further include various sleeve and cuff
designs, may be made :from a mesh or net material and may
have plain elastic bands at the end of the sleeves, as well as
other alternative design or aesthetic variations, to create an
alternative looks.
[0052] The garment accessory 100, 200, 300 and 400 may
be made in various sizes to fit snugly over the top portion of
various sized womenbavingvarious sized torsos and arms. In
one example of an implementation, the garment accessory
100, 200, 300 and 400 is made entirely of a fuur-way stretch
material, with added stretch trims and elastic encircling the
torso under the bust, and optionally around the bottoms of the
sleeves. When the garment accessory fits snugly, the garment
accessory may have the ability to support the breasts due to
the stretch fabric and cut of the design, and therefore, may be
worn either with or without a bm, at the discretion of the
wearer.
[0053] In particular, FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of
one example of a reversible sleeved garment accessory 100
illustmting the garment accessory 100 with the low-cui side
102 of the garment accessory in the front lllld the full coverage
side 104 in the back. As illustmted in FIG. 1, the reversible
garment accessory 100 is constructed at least partially from
an elastic material permitting the garment to stretch. The
reversible garment accessory 100 includes a first face 102 and
a second face 104 forming a circular upper torso member and
further consisting of two opposing sleeves or sleeve members

(0054] As further illustrated in FlG. 1, the garment acces-
sory 100 further includes an elastic band member 110
designed to encircle the torso of the wearer just underneath
the chest of the wearer. The elastic band member 110 may be.
a one piece elastic member that is permanently affixed at
opposing ends through stitching to create a unitary elastic
band 110 encircling the torso. As a unitary band 110, in the
illustrated implementation, the wearer would be required to
pull the garment over one's bead or step into the garment.
(0055] To provide the appearance that the garment acces-
sory 100 is part of an overlying gannent 3100, 3500 (see
FIGS. 31-35), when wom togelher, the garment accessory

seams along the shoulder and upper arm portions. Further, in
the illustrated example, the first :fuce 102, or low-cut side 102
is formed from the joining of two corresponding halves 132
and 134. To construct the garment accessory, the sleeves 106
and sides of the garment accessory 100 are then formed to by
joining the sleeve 106 portion of the :fubric by a seam 120
located on the underside of the sleeves that extends to along
the sides (see FIGS. 4 and 5). The first face 102 and second

elnbodiment of a reversible sleeved garment accessory 200
illustrating the garment accessory200 beingwomby a wearer
600 with the low-cut side 202 of the garment accessory 200
worn in the front and the full covemge side 204 (not shown)
worn in the back. Alternatively to the elastic band 210 being
permanently affixed together to encircle the body of the
wearer 600, as illustrated in FIGS.1-13, the elastic band210
of the garment accessory 200 may be removably secured
together utilizing a clip, clasp, hooks, or other closme or
filstening mechanism know by those skilled in the art. In the
example shown in FIG. 14, the garment accessory 200 is
designed to have clasp 240 attached to the elastic band 210
that encircles the wearer's torso just llllder the bust of the
wearer on the low-cut side 202 of the garment accessory 200.
In this manner, by utilizing a clasp 240 to removeably filsten
the elastic band210, the garment accessory200may open and
closeforthe wearer600 to slip more easily on and off.As with
the garment accessory 200 itself; the clasp 240 is made to be
flat and secured just llllder the cleavage of the wearer 600
when the low-cut side is wom in the front such that the clasp
240 lies flatunderthewoman's garment to give a smooth look
that appears to be part of the overlying outfit.
[0070] FIG. 15 is an enlwged view of the clasp 240 illus-
trated in Section A ofF! G. 14 showing the clasp 240 in the
open position. As illustrated, the clasp 240 is a closure device
having mating coopemtive portions 242 and 244 commonly
known in the art. One end of the elastic band 210 is affixed to
one mating portion 242, while the other end of the mating
portion 244 is affixed to the opposing end of the elastic band
210. The front face 202 is separated in two halves at or near
the closure device 240, with one half of the front face 202
extending from one side of the elastic band 210 and the other
half of the front face 202 extending from the other side of the
elastic band 210 opposite the closure device 240.
(0071] FIG. 16 is a back view of the reversible sleeved
garment accessory 200 of FIG. 14, illustrating the garment
accessory 200 being wominreverseto that illustrated in FIG.
14, with the low-cut side of the garmentaccessoryworninthe
back. In this implementation, the low-cut side 202 is sepa-
mted with a closure device 240, such as a hook or clasp, that
permits the wearer to open and close the garment accessory
200 for ease in dressing and undressing when wearing the
garment accesso:ry 200.
(0072] FIG. 17 is a front view of yet another example of
another implementation of a reversible sleeved garment
accessory 300 illustrating the garment accessory 300 being
wom with the low-cut side 302 of the garment accesso:ry 300
wom in the front. In this example, the garment accessory 300
has a crossover feature on at least one side of the garment
accessory where the material spans from the shoulder portion
308andacrossthebustorback,formingav-necklinethatcan
be as open or closed as the wearer determines by leaving it as
is, or by discreetly pinning it more closed. As illustrated,
when the cross-over feature is provided on the low-cut side
302, each half 320 and 322 overlap one another near the
elastic band 310 creating a triangular overlay section 324,
having double thickness material.
(0073] The same cross-over feature can be provided on the
fuller covemge side 304 of the garment accesso:ry 300. As

triangular overlay section330, having double thickness mate-
rial. While the cross-over feature can be designed to be on
eitherorboththelow-cut30Zorfull-coverage304sideofthe
garment accessory 300, the cross-over feature may only be
utilized on one side 302, 304 of the garment accessory 300.
For example, when the cross-over feature is on the low-cut
side 302 of the garment accessory 300, the fuller coverage
side304 may be designed to have a neckline similar to the full
coverage side 104 in FIG. 2. Similarly, when the cross-over
feature is on the full coverage side 304, the low-cut side 302
may be similar in design to the low-cut sid,e 102 illustrated in
FIG. 1 and may include an elastic band with or without a
closure device 240 (FIG. 15).
(0074] FIG. 19 is a front perspective view of yet another
example of a reversible sleeved garment accessory 400 of the
present invention illustrating the garment accessory 400 with
the low-cut side of the garrii.ent accessozy in the front and the
full coverage side in the back. The garment accessory 400 is
similar in construction to that illustrated in FIG. 1, yet
includes a bodice or torso section 440 extending below the
elastic band 410 of the garment accessory and, in some
designs, the bodice section 440 replaces the elastic band 410
in its entirety. The bodice section 440 terminates at hem 442,
which may extend to the waist or below the waist of the
wearer.
(0075] Similar to the design in FIG. 1, the garment acces-
sozy 400 includes a low-cut side 402 and a full coverage side
404, is reversible and can be wom both with the shoulder
portions 408 up or rolled down. The reversible garmentacces-
sozy further includes two opposing sleeve members 406. The
first face 402 is designed to provide minimal coverage for a
wearer and the second face 404 is designed to provide fuller
coverage, such that the garment accessory 400 can be wom
with either the first face 402 or the second face 404 facing
forward over the chest of the wearer to conceal the garment
accessory 400 under an overlying garment, as desired,
depending upon the neckline cut of the overlying garment.
(0076] In this implementation, the garment accessory 400
may further includes an elastic band member 410 designed to
encircle the torso of the wearer just underneath the chest of
the wearer. The elastic band member 110 may be a one piece
elastic member that is permanently affixed at opposing ends
through stitching to create a unitary elastic band 110 encir-
cling the torso. As a unitary band 110, in the illustrated imple-
mentation, the wearer would be required to pull the garment
over one's head or to step into the garment.
(0077] In addition to, or in lien of, the elastic band member
410 is a form fitting bodice section 440 that may provide
shapeorsupporttothatofthewearer. Thebodicesection440
may be made out of a strong m a t e r i a ~ such as a blend of
nylon, lycra and/or spandex, that are designed to contour the
wearer's body to the design of bodice section 440, creating a
slimmer body shape. Like the upper portion of the garment
accessory, the bodice section 440 isdesigned to be undetect-
able under clothing and is designed to have a utilitarian style,
similar to the top or upper portion of the garment accessory.
(0078] To provide the appearance that the garment acces-
sory 400 is part of an overlying garment, when wom together,
the garment accessory 400 has no shoulder seam along the
shoulderportion408ofthearm.soralongtheuppersideofthe
arms 406 themselves. The garment accessory 400 is all one
piece from the neckline 412 to the opposing end of the sleeve
414 (which may extend to a wearer's wrist or be shorter
depending upon sleeve length (e.g., the sleeve end portion
6
Aug. 12, 2010
may terminate mid-arm when designed to be a% or shorter
length sleeve)), and curving down under the bust 416 portion
of the garment to the bottom of the bra-line and across the
back 418 of the garment, creating the illusion ofbeing part of
the original dress, top or garment. As illustrated in FIGS.
22-24, all the seams 420 are made under the arm to substan-
tially conceal the seams.
[0079] FIG. 20 shows a rear perspective view of the revers-
ible sleeved garment accessory 400 of FIG. 19. This view
illustrates the full-coverage side404. As explained above, the
garment accessozy 400 is cut differently on one side (i.e., the
front face 402) than on the other side (i.e., the back face 404)
to create two different wearing options. In this manner, the
garment accessory 400 may be wom frontward or backward
for two different looks, each with two different levels of
coverage. As shown in FIG. 19, one side of the front face 402
is cut very low and is open down to the bottom of the bust
where the elastic 410 and/or bodice section 440 encircles the
torso, leaving the center of the bust, chest and neckline open,
yet still has the stretchy material sewn from the bottom of the
elastic on each side covering the arms, underarms, shoulder
and sides of the chest and torso. The second face 404, as
shown in FIG. 20, is made of the same fabric as the first face
402, yet cut higher to cover either a portion of the wearer's
back if wom in the back, or if wom in the front, to cover the
woman's cleavage, spanning across the top of the torso from
sleeve to sleeve.

one or more sides of the bodice portion 440 in a manner
corresponding to the garment accessory seams 420.

side 404 worn in the back, but with the shoulder portions 408
of the sleeves 406 of the garment accessory 400wom off-the-
shoulders. FIGS. 29-30 then illustrate the garment accessory
400 worn in reverse. While FIGS. 29-20 only illustrate the
shoulder portions 408 of the sleeves 406 up, it is recognized
that the shoulder portions 408 of the sleeves 406 may also be
folded downward when the full coverage face 404 is worn
forward, similar to shown in FIGS. 11 & 13 above.
(0087] FIGS. 31-35 all illustrate exiunples of the garment
accessmy 100, 200, 300 and 400 worn with a garment In
particular, FIG. 31 illustrates one example of a reversible
sleeved garment accessmy 100 worn U1ldemeath a sleeveless
dress 3100. In this illustration, the garment accessory 100 is
worn with the low-cut side of the garment accessory 100 in
the front and the shoulder portions 108 of the sleeves 106
worn on the shoulders of the wearer. In this example, the
low-cut side 102 (not shown) of the garment accessory 100 is
entirely covered by the garment 3100.
(0088] FIG. 33 is another front view of one example of a
reversible sleeved garment accessory 100beingworn with the
full coverage side 104 of the garment accessory 100 worn in
the front, the low-cut side 102 (not shown) worn in the back
and the shoulder portions 108 of sleeves 106 of the garment

7
Aug. 12, 2010
illustrated that the full coverage side 104, when worn in the
front, may be seen from U1ldemeath the garment 3100. FIG.
34isanotherfrontviewofoneexampleofareversiblesleeved
garment 100 worn underneath a sleeveless dress 3100. This
example illustrates the garment accessory 100 of FIG. 33
worn under the dress 3100, but having the shoulder portions
108 of the sleeves 106 rolled down to create another look.
(0089] FIG.35 isafrontviewofoneexampleofareversible
sleeved garment 100 of the invention worn underneath a
strapless dress 3500. In this example, the reversible sleeved
garment accessory 100 is worn with the full coverage side104
of the garment accessory 100 worn in the front, the low-cut
side 102 (not shown) worn in the back and the shoulder
portions 108 of sleeves 106 of lhe garment accessory 100
worn on-the-shoulders. In this example, it is illustrated that
1he full coverage side 104, when worn in the front, may be
seen from underneath the garment 3500.
(0090] FIG. 36 is a top perspective view of yet another
example of an implementation of a reversible sleeved gar-
ment accessory 700 illustrating that the arms 706 may be
formed having decorative elements 760 that extend along the
upper side of the arms 706 themselves from !he neckline 712
to the opposing end of the sleeves 714. Such decorative ele-
ments 760 may be incorporated to accent the garment acces-
sory 760 without creating lhe appearance that the garment
accessory 700 is a separate piece from the garment with
which it is worn.
(0091] As illustrated in FIG. 3, the first face 102 and a
second face 104 are formed from a single cut of :fabric to avoid
seams along the shoulder and upper arm portions. Further, in
the illustrated example, thefustface102, or low-cut side 102
is formed from the joining of two corresponding halves 132
and 134. To construct the garment accessmy, the sleeves 106
and sides of the garment accessory 100 are then formed to by
joining the sleeve 106 portion of the fabric by a seam 120
located on the underside of 1he sleeves that extends to along
the sides (see FIGS. 4 and 5). The first face 102 and second
face 104 are then designed to encircle the torso by attachment
to lhe elastic band 110, which may or may not include a
closure device 240 (see FIG.15). Alternatively, the first face
102 and a second face 104 may be formed from two reverse
cuts of fabric, in which case, both the first face 102 and second
face 104 may include opposing halves, similar to the halves
132 and134, which may be joined together at the elastic band
110. In this case, the halves may be joined to cross-over, as
illustratedinconnectionwithFIGS.17 and18below.Further,
the neckline 136 created by the first face 102 and second face
104 may further include elastic trim. Similarly, elastic trim
may be placed at 1he ends 114 of the sleeves 106.
(0092] In the examples provided above, two examples of a
full coverage face 104,203, 304, 404 are illustrated; however,
those skilled in the art will recognize that other styles of fuller
coverage faces made be designed of varying necklines and
levels of cleavage exposure. For example, the necklines may
be designed to be rounder or squarer than those in 1he pro-
vided illustratious. In one example, the fuller coverage side is
formed from a unitary piece of material having a swooping
neckline, while in an alternatively illustrated designs, the
fuller coverage side is constructed of two opposing pieces of
fabric crossing one another at the middle. Other variation on
the neck-line may be employed in the full coverage side 104,
204, 304,404 of the garment accessory 100, 200, 300 and400
without departing from the invention.
Case: 1:13-cv-00130 Doc #: 1-3 Filed: 01/18/13 27 of 27. PageID #: 47
US 2010/0199403 A1
(0093] Similarly, two examples of a low-cut face 102, 202,
302, 402 are illustmted; however, those skilled in the art will
recognize that other styles oflow-cut faces may be designed
of vmying necklines and levels of cleavage coverage. In one
example, the low-cut side is formed :from two opposing pieces
or halves that are separated from one another at the middle to
fully expose a woman's cleavage when worn with the low-cut
side on the front. In alternative designs, the separation
between the two opposing pieces may be very small, may
meet, or even slightly overlap to provide a small amount of
coverage over a woman's cleavage when worn with the low-
cut side on the front. Again, other variation on the neck-line
may be employed in the low-cut side 102, 202,302,402 of the
garment accessory 100, 200, 300 and 400 without departing
from the invention (e.g., the necklines may be designed to be
rounder or squarer than those in the provided illustrations).
