Title: ABSORBENT ARTICLE WITH ABSORBENT BODY PROVIDING IMPROVED ACCESS TO CONTAINMENT POCKET OF WAIST CONTAINMENT MEMBER
Abstract:
An absorbent article (10, 110, 210, 310, 410) can include a waist containment member (54) and an absorbent body (34, 134, 234, 334, 434). The waist containment member (54) can include a proximal portion (76) and a distal portion (78) configured to freely move with respect to the chassis (11) when the absorbent article (10, 110, 210, 310, 410) is in a relaxed configuration to provide a containment pocket (82). The absorbent body (34, 134, 234, 334, 434) can be configured to provide improved access for exudates into the containment pocket (82) of the waist containment member (54).
