Fastening Means for an Absorbent Garment

January 18, 2005

An absorbent garment comprising first and second waist portions at opposed ends has been patented. The waist portions each have side edges, wherein the waist portions are joined by an intermediate region suitable for the inclusion of an absorbent body for absorbing bodily exudates. A first attachment device is provided on the first waist portion, and a second attachment device is provided on the second waist portion. These devices cooperate with each other for releasable attachment. The first attachment device comprises at least two elongate first attachment strip elements extending between the side edges of the first waist portion and the second attachment device comprises a second attachment strip element at each side edge of the second waist portion. In each of the second attachment strip elements, the major length is greater than the minor length and the major length extends generally transverse to the first attachment strip elements, wherein the first attachment strip elements are separated, over at least a part of their length, by a distance that is as large as a major proportion of the width of any one of the first attachment strip elements as measured at the at least a part of their length. The major length of each of the second attachment strip elements is greater than the distance separating the first attachment strip elements.
