Washing, drying, and storage device for brassieres and bikini tops

A device for washing, drying, and storing brassieres and bikini tops and the like comprises an outer shell having two halves that have a plurality of holes. A foraminous inner form, which also contains a plurality of holes, has an exterior surface shaped like the contours of a padded bra cup breast side. The bra cups' breast side rests against the inner form's exterior surfaces to prevent it and the bra's underwires from losing their natural curvature. The inner form is hollow and provides space for the containment of a bra's shoulder and back straps. The inner form is secured to the outer shell's two halves by a first hinge, which allows the inner form to swing from first half to second half and vice versa, and also allows first half and second half to open and close like a clamshell. A second hinge is located between the first hinge and the inner form to allow the inner form to swing away from the outer shell's two halves and back to its original position for easy placement and removal of bra(s) inside in the device. A latching mechanism secures the device in a closed and locked or latched position and is located between the exterior and interior surfaces of the outer shell's two halves. The protruding rim on one half of the outer shell nestles within the receiving rim on the other half to prevent lateral movement of the two halves.

Bikini bottom or briefs

A relatively simple frame for use in bikini bottoms or briefs includes two lengths of wire which are bent to define mirror images of each other, the lengths defining a major portion of an oval of sufficient length to extend around the crotch of a wearer between a V-shaped line across the rectus abdominous muscle in the front and the sacrum in the rear of the wearer. Each of the lengths of wire includes a straight, vertical rear portion extending downwardly from an inverted L-shaped top rear end to approximately the bottom center of the crotch area, and a front portion flaring outwardly and upwardly from the vertical plane of the straight rear portion to a top end and then downwardly to the vertical plane of the rear portion. The two lengths of wire are interconnected using conventional cable connectors to define a T-shaped rear and a generally triangular front with a V-shaped depression in the top thereof. A front connector loosely retains the wires so that the frame can readily be deformed during manufacture of the product. The frame is covered with a fabric or other flexible cover.

Bikini bottom or briefs

In general, bikini bottoms or briefs are somewhat unimaginative in terms of shape, uncomfortable and expensive to produce. A relatively simple frame for use in bikini bottoms or briefs includes two lengths of wire which are bent to define mirror images of each other, the lengths defining a major portion of an oval of sufficient length to extend around the crotch of a wearer between a V-shaped line across the rectus abdominous muscle in the front and the sacrum in the rear of the wearer. Each of the lengths of wire includes a straight, vertical rear portion extending downwardly from an inverted L-shaped top rear end to approximately the bottom center of the crotch area, and a front portion flaring outwardly and upwardly from the vertical plane of the straight rear portion to a top end and then downwardly to the vertical plane of the rear portion. The two lengths of wire are interconnected using conventional cable connectors to define a T-shaped rear and a generally triangular front with a V-shaped depression in the top thereof. When the frame is covered with a fabric or other flexible cover, the resulting bikini bottom or briefs includes a triangular front panel with a V-shaped depression in the top edge thereof, a narrow, generally rectangular strip in the crotch area and a triangular rear panel with a straight top edge.

Bikini TM blade apparatus and methods

Bikini.TM. Blade apparatus for reducing levels of visible hair present within the bikini line region, or the groin area of a user, is made up of at least a blade in a razor blader head assembly, which is otherwise conventional, except for having a cutting edge ranging from at least about 0.50 inches to about 0.90 inches, in combination with conventional attachments, handles and refillable and disposable specialized handle structures, with which it is compatible. A method of use and kit are likewise disclosed whereby at least one of a user's groin area and bikini line are rendered substantially free of visible hairs.
