CLAIMS

What is claimed is

1. A subassembly comprising:

a continuous rear belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by first and second nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides;

a continuous front belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by third and fourth nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides;

a plurality of discontinuous fastening webs, each permanently joined to the inner surface of at least one of the rear or front belt webs, each having a left side and a right side;

a plurality of fastening elements permanently joined to at least one of the discontinuous fastening webs and one of the front and rear belt webs, wherein the fastening elements are refastenably joined to the other of the fastening webs and one of the front and rear belt webs; and

wherein the discontinuous fastening webs are folded laterally inward and folded laterally outward to form first and second folds on each of the left and right sides of the discontinuous fastening webs.

2. The subassembly of claim 1, wherein the fastening elements are permanently joined to the discontinuous fastening webs and refastenably fastened to one of the rear and front belt webs.

3. The subassembly of any of the preceding claims, wherein the fastening elements are hook and loop type fasteners.

4. The subassembly of any of claims 2, wherein the fastening elements are hooks that engage the nonwoven material of the one of the rear and front belt webs.

5. The subassembly of any of the preceding claims, wherein temporary bonds are placed between the first and second folds on each of the discontinuous fastening webs.

6. The subassembly of any of the preceding claims, wherein the discontinuous fastening webs are permanently attached to the continuous rear belt web.

7. A subassembly comprising:

a continuous rear belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by first and second nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides;

a continuous front belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by third and fourth nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides;

a plurality of first discontinuous fastening webs, each permanently joined to the inner surface of at least one of the rear or front belt webs and a plurality of second discontinuous fastening webs, each permanently joined to the inner surface of the other of the rear or front belt webs, wherein each of the discontinuous fastening webs each have a left side and a right side;

a plurality of fastening elements permanently joined to at least one of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs and refastenably joined to the other of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs; and

wherein at least one of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs is folded laterally inward on each of the left and right sides.

8. The subassembly of claim 7, wherein the first discontinuous fastening web is permanently joined to the inner surface of the continuous rear belt web and the second discontinuous fastening web is permanently joined to the inner surface of the continuous front belt web.

9. The subassembly of claims 7-8, wherein first discontinuous belt web is folded laterally inward.

10. The subassembly of claims 7-9, wherein the plurality of fastening elements are permanently joined to the second discontinuous belt web and refastenably joined to the first discontinuous belt web.

11. The subassembly of claims 7-10, wherein the second discontinuous belt web is disposed between the plurality of fastening elements and the first discontinuous belt web.

12. A subassembly comprising:

a continuous rear belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by first and second nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides, wherein the first nonwoven forms the outer side;

a continuous front belt web comprising elastic elements sandwiched by the first and a third nonwoven webs, the rear belt having inner and outer sides, wherein the first nonwoven forms the outer side;

a plurality of first discontinuous fastening webs, each permanently joined to the inner surface of at least one of the rear or front belt webs and a plurality of second discontinuous fastening webs, each permanently joined to the inner surface of the other of the rear or front belt webs;

a plurality of fastening elements permanently joined to at least one of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs and refastenably joined to the other of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs; and

wherein at least one of the first and second discontinuous fastening webs is folded laterally inward.

13. The subassembly of claim 12, wherein the first discontinuous fastening web is permanently joined to the inner surface of the continuous rear belt web and the second discontinuous fastening web is permanently joined to the inner surface of the continuous front belt web.

14. The subassembly of claims 12-13, wherein first discontinuous belt web is folded laterally inward.

15. The subassembly of claims 12-14, wherein the plurality of fastening elements are permanently joined to the second discontinuous belt web and refastenably joined to the first discontinuous belt web.
