Underwear description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The field of invention relates to undergarment structure, and more particularly pertains to a new and improved condom pocket underwear wherein the same is arranged for the securement of a condom member within a pocket of the underwear garment.

2. Description of the Prior Art

The advent of sexually transmissive diseases in contemporary society requires the utilization of various precautions to prevent spread of disease. The instant invention provides for advantages over the prior art by utilizing a pocket member integrally formed relative to an undergarment structure in combination with a condom positioned therewithin for ease of access thereto. Prior art undergarment construction is exemplified to accommodate various activity such as U.S. Pat. No. 4,870,958 to Webster wherein an underwear member utilizes a partitioning liner to maintain an undergarment in position during various physical activities.

U.S. Pat. No. 4,702,239 to Ichikawa sets forth an undergarment member for men, including a hip covering portion covering a user's hips to further include a crotch covering portion of predetermined configuration.

As such, it may be appreciated that there continues to be a need for a new and improved condom pocket underwear as set forth by the instant invention which addresses both the problems of ease of use as well as effectiveness in construction and in this respect, the present invention substantially fulfills this need.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of underwear construction now present in the prior art, the present invention provides a condom pocket underwear wherein the same is arranged to position a condom member within a pocket structure of an associated underwear garment. As such, the general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new and improved condom pocket underwear which has all the advantages of the prior art underwear construction and none of the disadvantages.

To attain this, the present invention provides an underwear garment including a torso surrounding web formed with an elastomeric waistband to include a respective first and second leg opening divided by a central crotch web. A pocket member is mounted to the torso web to position a condom member therewithin. A modificaition of the invention includes a second pocket member spaced from a first pocket member defined by a fluid impermeable pocket structure including a zipper seam to permit depositing of a condom member therewithin, wherein the second pocket is arranged to include a tube member including a germicidal fluid that is punctured upon projection and securement of the zipper seam together directing germicidal fluid through a distribution conduit positioned below the tube member in communication with the second pocket cavity.

With reference now to the drawings, and in particular to FIGS. 1 to 8 thereof, a new and improved condom pocket underwear embodying the principles and concepts of the present invention and generally designated by the reference numerals 10 and 10a will be described.

More specifically, the condom pocket underwear 10 of the instant invention essentially comprises a torso surrounding web 11 including an annular elastomeric waistband 12 fixedly mounted to an upper perimeter end of the torso web 11 to provide access into the underwear member 10. A first leg opening 13 and a second leg opening 14 are directed through the torso web 11 demarcated by a crotch web 15. As illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the garment may be configured as either a man's or woman's underwear garment respectively, including a pocket member 17 mounted to the torso web 11 adjacent the waistband defined by a pocket member cavity 18 including a condom member 19 contained therewithin. As a man's underwear garment, as illustrated in FIG. 1, a crotch web opening flap 16 is provided. It should be further noted that should the use of an elastomeric band 12 be utilized individually with a plurality of waistband stocking support tethers 20, the pocket 17 may be mounted to one of the tethers such as in the FIG. 3.

A modified aspect of the invention as illustrated in FIG. 4 and set forth by the construction 10a includes a second pocket 21 mounted to the torso web 11 adjacent the waistband for ease of access thereto, wherein the second pocket 21 (see FIG. 6) is defined by a second pocket cavity 30. The second pocket 21 is formed by a generally "U" shaped fluid impermeable web 22 formed with a single uppermost opening that is selectively closed by an associated zipper opening seam 26. The zipper seam 26 includes a "V" shaped zipper projecting seam 23 mounted to an upper first end of the opening receivable within a "V" shaped zipper cavity 24 that is coextensive therewith. The "V" shaped zipper projecting seam 23 is formed with projecting seam tip 25 (see FIG. 9) that may be formed in a manner as set forth in the FIG. 9 for the selective piercing of a tube member 27 positioned and fixedly mounted within an apex of the "V" shaped cavity 24. The tube member 27 is filled with a germicidal fluid 28 for distribution upon a condom member that is subsequently placed within the second pocket 21. The tube member 27 is positioned above a distribution conduit 29 in fluid communication with the tube member 27 and the underlying second pocket cavity 30 to deposit the germicidal fluid 28 within the cavity 30 and an associated condom member positioned therewithin upon projection of the seam tip 25 into the tube member 27 forcing the germicidal fluid 28 through the distribution conduit 29 and into the second pocket cavity 30 for a sanitary disposing of the condom member 19.

It should be noted that the second pocket 21 may be opened and its contents emptied and washed in a conventional manner for the sanitizing of the pocket for subsequent use, wherein a replacement tube member 27 and associated germicidal fluid 28 contained therewithin may be readhered within the apex of the "V" shaped cavity 24.

As to the manner of usage and operation of the instant invention, the same should be apparent from the above disclosure, and accordingly no further discussion relative to the manner of usage and operation of the instant invention shall be provided.

With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention.

Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
