Title: THREE-DIMENSIONAL MATERIALS
Abstract:
An absorbent article comprises a laminate, a backsheet, and an absorbent core disposed at least partially between the laminate and the backsheet. The laminate comprises a nonwoven, non-apertured topsheet and a nonwoven, non-apertured acquisition layer. The topsheet is less hydrophilic than the acquisition layer. The laminate comprises a generally planar first region and a plurality of discrete integral second regions formed in the topsheet and the acquisition layer to nest portions of the topsheet and the acquisition layer. The plurality of discrete integral second regions each comprise a wearer-facing surface. A non-uniform interruption is defined in the topsheet in each of at least some of the plurality of discrete integral second regions. Portions of the acquisition layer form portions of the wearer-facing surface in the non-uniform interruption in the at least some of the discrete integral second regions.
