July 6, 2004

An absorbent article has been patented. The article includes a liquid permeable surface structural body, a backing sheet and an absorbent core between the surface structural body and the backing sheet. The surface structural body includes a lower layer adjacent to the absorbent core, an upper layer away from the absorbent core and an intermediate layer between the lower layer and the upper layer. Widths of the lower layer, the intermediate layer and the upper layer are varied in descending order from the lower layer to the upper layer so that the upper layer is located over a center portion of the lower layer or two separate portions of the upper layer are located over laterally opposed side portions of the lower layer. Each layer is a bundle of continuous filaments individually extending over their entire length. The continuous filaments of respective layers are partially fixed together and the hydrophilicities of the upper layer, the intermediate layer and the lower layer are varied in ascending order from the upper to lower layer.
