DETAILED DESCRIPTION

As society as a whole has become more aware of the longer term health benefits of and fitness, exercise and fitness programs are becoming part of daily routines for an increasing number of people. For example, a person may exercise using exercise equipment at a fitness center or may walk or run in a public area, such as a track or sidewalk.

[0053] Typically, a person exercising wears clothing, such as shirts, shorts, pants, socks, under garments, and shoes, that are adapted to provide comfort, style, and/or other benefits during a person's exercise routine. For example, a person may wear a shirt and shorts made of a material that promotes moister wicking while providing a comfortable fit to allow for appropriate body movement while exercising.

[0054] A person's business and/or life schedule may dictate when and where the person can exercise. Additionally, the person may change clothes from an attire appropriate for a business and/or life event to clothing appropriate for exercising. This may require carrying a bag with the clothing appropriate for exercising to the business and/or life event and changing from the clothing worn to the business and/or life event in a restroom, locker room, office, or other suitable private place for changing clothes. Time constraints set by business and/or life schedules may limit the amount of time a person has to exercise and, consequently, limit the amount of time the person has to change clothes. Further, it may be undesirable for the person changing clothes to do so in a restroom, locker room, office, or other suitable private place for changing clothes. Accordingly, garments, such as clothing appropriate for exercising, having one or more adjustment components that allow a wearer of the garment to change clothes without the use of a restroom, locker room, office, or other suitable private place for changing clothes, may be desirable.

[0055] In some embodiments, according to the principles of the present disclosure, garments suitable for wearing while exercising may include one or more adjustment components. For example, a top garment, such as a shirt, coat, jacket, undergarment (e.g., bra or sports bra), dresses, tank tops, military fatigues, or other suitable garment, may include an upper portion and a lower portion. The lower portion is adapted to be adjusted responsive to actuating the one or more adjustment components such that the lower portion is drawn toward the upper portion. The lower portion may then be retained by the upper portion. Similarly, a bottom garment, such as shorts, pants, capris, stretch pants, skirts, military fatigues, skorts, or other suitable garments, may include one or more upper portions and one or more lower portions. Each of the lower portions of the bottom garment may be adapted to be adjusted responsive to actuating one or more adjustment components associated with the bottom garment such that the each lower portion is drawn toward a corresponding upper portion of the bottom garment. Each lower portion may then be retained by the corresponding upper portions of the bottom garment By actuating the adjustment components of the garments, a wearer may be able to wear the garments under other attire, such as a dress, a suite, a dress shirt, dress pants, jeans, shorts, and/or other suitable attire while remaining comfortable. Additionally or alternatively, when the garments are adjusted such that respective upper portions retain corresponding lower portions, the garments may provide upper and lower body support to the wearer and/or may provide desirable aesthetics while worn (e.g., by providing, for example, a trimmer appearance of the wearer).

[0056] In some embodiments, garments having adjustment components allow a wearer of the garments to wear an alternative (e.g., complete) outfit under other attire, as described above. In some embodiments, the garments having adjustment components are adapted to be concealed (e.g., not visible to others) under the other attire. In some embodiments, a wearer of the garments having adjustment components can change out of other clothing, into the garments having adjustment components by removing the other clothing by releasing respective lower portions from corresponding upper portions by actuating the adjustment components. The garments having adjustment components may be adapted for use by adult men, adult women, and/or children.

[0057] With reference to FIGS. 1 A-1D, a top garment 10 and a bottom garment 20 according to the principles of the present disclosure are generally illustrated. The top garment 10 and the bottom garment 20 comprise one or more suitable materials. For example, the top garment 10 and the bottom garment 20 may comprise: natural fiber materials, such as cotton or other suitable natural fiber materials; synthetic fiber materials, such as polyester, elastane, nylon, or other suitable synthetic materials; or a combination thereof.

[0058] In some embodiments, the top garment 10 may include a shirt or other article of clothing suitable for wearing on an upper portion of a human body.

In some embodiments, the upper portion 12 includes a first material and the lower portion 14 includes a second material. For example, the first material may comprise a synthetic fiber material such as elastane and the second material may comprise a different synthetic fiber material such as a microfiber comprising polyester.

[0059] The upper portion 12 may be adapted to cover a chest and at least a portion of one or both arms of the human body. In some embodiments, the upper portion 12 includes a retainer 16 that is disposed on a distal portion of the upper portion 12 and extends around a diameter of the upper portion 12. In some embodiments, the retainer 16 comprises a rigid or semi-rigid material, such as an elastic material. In some embodiments, the retainer 16 includes other suitable materials, such as one or more of the natural fiber materials and/or the synthetic fiber materials described above. The retainer 16 is adapted to retain the lower portion 14 when the lower portion 14 is adjusted toward the upper portion 12 as is generally illustrated in FIG. IB.

[0060] In some embodiments, the upper portion 12 may omit the retainer 16. Additionally, or alternatively, the top garment 10 may omit the retainer 16. For example, as is generally illustrated in FIGS. 26A-26D, the upper portion 12 may be adapted to retain a portion or all of the lower portion 14 when the lower portion 14 is adjusted toward the upper portion 12.

[0061] The lower portion 14 extends from the retainer 16 away from the upper portion 12. The lower portion 14 is adapted to cover at least a portion of a torso of the human body. In some embodiments, the lower portion 14 is adapted to be retained by the retainer 16 and/or the upper portion 12 when the lower portion 14 is adjusted toward the retainer 16 and/or upper portion 12. For example, the lower portion 14 may be retained behind the upper portion 12 when the lower portion 14 is drawn toward the upper portion 12.

[0062] In some embodiments, the top garment 10 includes one or more adjustment components 18. In some embodiments, the one or more adjustment components 18 may be disposed on an inside portion of the top garment 10, such that, the one or more adjustment components 18 are disposed between the top garment 10 and the wearer of the top garment 10.
