Absorbent Article

October 1, 2002

An absorbent article comprising a support body and a liquid-absorbing member positioned on the support body’s liquid-receiving side has been patented. The article features two opposing side wall sheets disposed on two sides of the support in a widthwise direction. The side wall sheets are longitudinally attached at their root ends to the support body. A connecting sheet connects the two side wall sheets, which are individually subjected to elastic shrinking forces in the longitudinal direction in order to raise the free ends from the support body to the liquid-receiving side. The liquid-absorbing member is supported by the connecting sheet so that the liquid-absorbing member can move over the support body while being directly unattached to the support body.
