Title: ABSORBENT ARTICLE
Abstract:
Provided is an absorbent article (1) that minimizes contact of a section of the side surfaces (41, 41) of an absorbent body (4) with the inner thigh of a wearer when wing sections (6, 6) have been folded and attached to underwear, and that minimizes the occurrence of large twists in the aforementioned section of the side surfaces (41, 41) of the absorbent body (4). The present invention is an absorbent article (1) comprising: a main body section (10) provided with a top sheet (2), a back sheet (3), and an absorbent body (4); and wing sections (6, 6) that are arranged on both sides of the main body section (10). The main body section (10) also comprises a bend-inhibiting sheet (5) that is provided between the absorbent body (4) and the back sheet (3). The edges (51, 51) on both sides of the bend-inhibiting sheet (5) in the width direction are positioned farther outward in the width direction than the side surfaces (41, 41) of the absorbent body. The bend-inhibiting sheet (5) imparts rigidity to the absorbent article (1) such that the absorbent article (1) is harder to bend in the area in which the bend-inhibiting sheet (5) is provided than in the area in which the bend-inhibiting sheet (5) is not provided.
