Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] (a) Field of the Invention

[0002] The present invention relates to decorating chains, and particularly to a multi-functional brassiere decorating chain, which can be assembled as a necklace, hand chain, or waist chain.

[0003] (b) Description of the Prior Art

[0004] The defect of the prior art brassiere is that the shoulder belts are suspended from the shoulders of the user. If the user wears a dress which will expose the shoulder of the user, the belt will cause the user to have a bad outlook so as to make an unpleasure outlook to other viewer.

[0005] Thereby, an easy wearing brassiere is designed, in that the brassiere has function of shoulder belts, as shown in FIG. 1. The brassiere has a decorating chain 10 and an adjust chain 20. One end of the decorating chain 10 has a ring 101 which is fixed to the adjust chain 20. The ring 101 is installed with an elastic buckle 30. Another end of the decorating chain 10 has another ring 102 which is firmly secured to a hook piece 40. Another end of the adjust chain 20 is firmly secured to a pin 50. Thereby, the conventional decorating chain used in the brassiere can be replaced. The pin 50 is used to guide the adjust chain 2 to pass through the rear at a rear side of the brassiere. Then, the elastic buckle 30 buckles the adjust chain 20 so that the adjust chain 20 are installed to the ear of the brassiere. Then the decorating chain 10 passes through the shoulder and the hook 40 will hook the ear at a front side of the brassiere so that the decorating chain 10 exactly exposes on the shoulder. Thereby, the decorating chain 10 is presented as a shoulder belt of a brassiere. Thus, the decorating chain 10 can present a very beautiful outlook and convenience of a beltless brassiere 50 can be avoided.

[0006] However, above brassiere decorating chain, the rings 101 and 102 are fixed to the adjust chain 20 and hook piece 40, the brassiere decorating chain 10 has only one usage. The users can not change the use of the brassiere decorating chain 10 to other application.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0007] Accordingly the primary object of the present invention is to provide a multi-functional brassiere decorating chain comprises a decorating chain, an adjust chain and a hook piece. The decorating chain is a chain having decoration effect; two ends of the decorating chain are firmly secured with respective prior art elastic hooks. The adjust chain is a chain formed by a plurality of O rings which are buckled one by one; one end of the adjust chain is firmly secured to a post-like pin and another end is use to be buckled to the decorating chain. One corner of a top of the hook piece is a hollow ring; and the hook piece has a notch so that the hook piece has hooking effect. By above components, the elastic hooks an buckle to one end of the adjust chain without the pin; moreover, the decorating chain can be assembled as a necklace, a hand chain, a leg chain, and a waist chain.

[0008] The various objects and advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood from the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the appended drawing.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[0016] Referring to FIG. 2, the multi-functional brassiere decorating chain of the present invention is illustrated. The multi-functional brassiere decorating chain includes a decorating chain 1, an adjust chain 2 and a hook piece 3.

[0017] The decorating chain 1 is a chain having decoration effect. The form of the chain is not specific in the present invention. Two ends of the decorating chain 1 are firmly secured with respective prior art elastic hooks 11. The elastic hooks 11 are serves to be connected to the adjust chain 2 and the hook piece 3.

[0018] The adjust chain 2 is a chain for providing the brassiere and is adjustable. The adjust chain 2 is formed by a plurality of O rings which are buckled one by one. One end of the adjust chain 2 is firmly secured to a post-like pin 21 and another end is use to be buckled to the decorating chain 1.

[0019] The hook piece 3 is a triangular piece. One corner of a top of the hook piece 3 is a hollow ring 31. One lateral side of the hook piece 3 has a notch 32 so that the hook piece 3 has hooking effect.

[0020] By above components, if it is desired to cause the brassiere has the function of shoulder belt, referring to FIG. 3, the elastic hook 11 at one end of the decorating chain 1 may buckle to one end of the adjust chain 2 without the pin 21. Thereby, the decorating chain 1 and the adjust chain 2 are connected by the elastic hook 11. The elastic hook 11 at another end of the decorating chain 1 is buckled to the ring 31 of the hook piece 3. Thereby, the decorating chain 1 and the hook piece 3 are connected by the elastic hook 11. Thereby, a multi-functional brassiere decorating chain is formed.

[0021] When the present invention is used to a brassiere, referring to FIG. 4, the user uses two decorating chains of the present invention. The decorating chain 1 passes through the ear 501 behind the conventional brassiere 50 by the pin 21 at one end thereof so that the adjust chain 2 may enclose the ear 501. By connecting the decorating chain 1 and the elastic hook 11 of the adjust chain 2, and the chain body of the adjust chain 2 is buckled. Thereby, the adjust chain 2 will be connected to the brassiere 50. The length is adjustable. When the brassiere 50 is worn upon the breast, the decorating chain 1 will suspend from the shoulder. The notch 32 of the hook piece 3 will hook the front suspending ear 502 of the brassiere 50 (referring to FIG. 5). Thereby, when the decorating chain 1 exactly lays around the shoulder. Thereby, the multi-functional brassiere decorating chain of the present invention has function of shoulder belt and has the effect of decoration. It is especially suitable for girls wearing a dress without shoulder belts.

[0022] The object of the present invention is that the use of the decorating chain 1 is changeable. In one application, the elastic hooks 11 at two ends of the decorating chain 1 are separated from the adjust chain 2 and hook piece 3 (namely, the adjust chain 2 and hook piece 3 are detached) so that the elastic hooks 11 at two ends of the decorating chain 1 are buckled to one another (referring to FIG. 6). Thereby, if the decorating chain 1 is enclosed around the neck, the decorating chain 1 can be used as necklace (referring to FIG. 7). Likewise, if the decorating chain 1 is utilized to wrists or ankles, the two elastic hooks 11 are buckled to one another, thereby, having the effect of hand chains or leg chains, referring to FIG. 7. Moreover, in general, two of the present invention are used together (for example, two decorating chains are necessary for being used to a brassiere 50). Thereby, the elastic hooks 11 of two decorating chains 1 are buckled to one another and then the combinational structure encloses the user's waist so as to be as a waist chain (referring to FIG. 7). However, the present invention has other applications which can be varied by the user.

[0023] It is apparent that by the present invention, the decorating chain 1, adjust chain 2 and hook piece 3 can be detached and assembled as desired so that the prior art brassiere has various effects. It is more practical and improved than the prior art.

[0024] Although the present invention has been described with reference to the preferred embodiments, it will be understood that the invention is not limited to the details described thereof. Various substitutions and modifications have been suggested in the foregoing description, and others will occur to those of ordinary skill in the art. Therefore, all such substitutions and modifications are intended to be embraced within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
