A disposable absorbent article has been patented. The article comprises a liquid-pervious structured carrier with an inner surface oriented toward the interior of the disposable absorbent article. The article also features an outer surface oriented toward the wearer’s skin when the disposable absorbent article is worn. The structured carrier has an effective open area of approximately 12% and a plurality of apertures with an effective size greater than 0.1mm2.
