Title (EN) GENERALLY THIN, FLEXIBLE SANITARY NAPKIN WITH STIFFENED CENTER
(FR) SERVIETTE HYGIENIQUE GENERALEMENT MINCE ET PLIABLE A PARTIE CENTRALE RENFORCEE
Abstract:
(EN) A generally thin, flexible sanitary napkin capable of absorbing medium to high menstrual flows, and having a stiffened center is provided. In one embodiment, the sanitary napkin has a longitudinal central region disposed along the length of at least a portion of the longitudinal centerline, and longitudinal side regions are disposed outboard of the longitudinal central region. The longitudinal central region of the sanitary napkin has a flexure-resistance that is greater than that of the longitudinal side regions. The embodiment of the sanitary napkin described above easily forms around the curvature of the wearer's labia majora by cupping and surrounding the exterior of the labia majora. The longitudinal central region of the sanitary napkin forms the bottom of a cup-like trough under the wearer's labia majora, and the longitudinal side regions are sufficently flexible that they are able to form the sides of the trough structure.
(FR) L'invention concerne une serviette hygiénique généralement mince et pliable pouvant absorber des flux menstruels moyens à forts et dont la partie centrale est renforcée. Dans un mode de réalisation, la serviette hygiénique présente une zone centrale longitudinale située sur la longueur d'au moins une partie de la ligne médiane longitudinale, et des zones latérales longitudinales sont situées en dehors de la zone centrale longitudinale. La zone centrale longitudinale de la serviette hygiénique possède une résistance au pliage supérieure à celle des zones latérales longitudinales. La serviette hygiénique décrite ci-dessus épouse facilement la courbure des grandes lèvres de l'utilisatrice en se creusant et en entourant ces dernières. La zone centrale longitudinale de la serviette hygiénique forme le fond d'un creux en forme de cuvette sous les grandes lèvres de l'utilisatrice, et les zones latérales longitudinales sont suffisamment souples pour qu'elles puissent former les côtés de la structure en creux.
