Title (EN) DISPOSABLE ABSORBENT ARTICLE HAVING A GARMENT-LIKE APPEARANCE
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT JETABLE AYANT L'APPARENCE D'UN VETEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A disposable absorbent article defines a first side portion, a second side portion, and a longitudinal centerline between the side portions. The absorbent article comprises an outer cover and an absorbent insert which is connected to the outer cover. The outer cover comprises a first side panel which is located in the first side portion of the absorbent article and a second side panel which is located in the second side portion of the absorbent article. An edge of the first side panel is connected to an edge of the second side panel to provide a seam which extends along the longitudinal centerline between the side portions of the absorbent article. The opposite waist regions on each side panel are configured to encircle the legs of the wearer and releasably engage together about the hips of the wearer. The disposable absorbent article has an aesthetically pleasing garment-like appearance and is readily refastenable about the hips of the wearer.
(FR) L'invention concerne un article absorbant jetable comportant une première et une seconde parties latérales ainsi qu'une ligne centrale longitudinale entre ces deux parties. Cet article absorbant comporte une enveloppe extérieure et une pièce rapportée absorbante raccordée à cette enveloppe. Celle-ci comporte un premier panneau latéral situé dans la première partie latérale de l'article absorbant et un second panneau latéral situé dans la seconde partie latérale de l'article absorbant. Un bord de ce premier panneau latéral est raccordé à un bord du second panneau latéral afin de constituer une jointure courant le long de la ligne centrale longitudinale entre les parties latérales de l'article absorbant. Les zones opposées de ceinture sur chaque panneau latéral sont configurées de manière à ménager un passage encerclant les jambes du porteur et à s'appliquer l'une sur l'autre, tout en restant amovibles, autour de ses hanches. L'article absorbant jetable, qui possède l'esthétique agréable d'un vêtement, se rattache facilement autour des hanches du porteur.
