Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0002511A1] A three dimensional disposable underpant having an absorbent core has been skewed forward by a factor of no more than 0.155. The absorbent core is disposed within the front, central, and back sections of the disposable underpant such that the length of the absorbent core in the back section of the disposable underpant divided by the length of the absorbent core in the front and central sections of the disposable underpant is less than 0.155 and the length of the absorbent core in the front section of the disposable underpant is greater than the length of the absorbent core in the back section of the disposable underpant. The disposable underpant may include elasticized leg and waist openings, resulting in the underpant being stretchable about the hip and stomach regions of a user.
