Title (EN) ABSORBENT ARTICLE HAVING SELECTIVELY ALTERABLE DIMENSIONS
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT A DIMENSIONS MODIFIABLES SELECTIVEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Absorbent articles such as pantiliners, panty liners, and incontinence pads are disclosed. More particularly, the present invention relates to absorbent articles, such as pantiliners, that can have portions thereof removed or otherwise manipulated to change, and particularly reduce, the dimensions of the absorbent article so that they can fit a variety of panty sizes and styles. In a preferred embodiment, the pantiliner is adjusted in size by tearing the absorbent article along one or more perforation lines and removing the portions of the absorbent article that lie outboard of the perforation lines.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des articles absorbants tels que des protections, des protège-slips, ou des couches pour incontinents, et plus particulièrement sur des articles absorbants tels que des protections dont certaines parties peuvent être ôtées ou manipulées pour modifier, et en particulier réduire, les dimensions de l'article absorbant pour lui permettre de s'adapter à une variété de tailles et de styles. Dans une variante préférée, la taille de la protection s'ajuste en déchirant l'article absorbant le long d'une ou plusieurs lignes de perforations et en éliminant les parties de l'article absorbant se trouvant à l'extérieur de la ligne de perforations.
