AbstractA shoulder pad configured and sized to dwell on the shoulder of a wearer; the shoulder pad includes an outer cover having upper and lower sheet portions which are folded over and stitched together so as to enclose a resilient core layer, and has an opening into a pocket provided within the core layer so that valuable articles may be placed therein for safekeeping. The pad also has lip portions provided at the pocket opening which are reinforced and include fasteners, such as VELCRO™ fastener strips, to close the pocket. The pad upper surface is provided with at least one VELCRO™ patch fastener or strip to engage the inside of the shoulder zone of a garment of a wearer to maintain the pad in desired position, and the pad lower surface includes a loop which can be opened and closed to embrace a brassiere strap of a wearer of the pad.
