The article also has a liquid-pervious cover layer and a liquid-impervious cover layer and an absorbent body. A rear portion of the absorbent body comprises a layer that is split into a substantially Y-shaped body with a first leg and a second leg with a gap between the legs having an angle · defined between the first leg and the second leg. The rear portion of the absorbent body begins at a change in inclination of the side edges with respect to a longitudinal center line of the article. A center portion of the absorbent body is a primary receiving portion when a liquid is emitted on to the absorbent body. An elastic member is placed between the first leg and the second leg without overlapping the first and second legs. The elastic member extends in the longitudinal direction.
