Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1016389A1] A disposable absorbent article adapted to form a tridimensional shape prior to use with a generally upwardly convex rear region, having a body facing surface and a garment facing surface, a longitudinal symmetry plane, a front end edge and a rear end edge, and comprising a liquid pervious topsheet, a backsheet joined to said topsheet and an absorbent core intermediate the backsheet and the topsheet. The absorbent core has an improved fluid handling capability in order to increase fluid acquisition and distribution, while preventing side leakage at the same time. <IMAGE>
