Absorbent Article Having A Decorative Element

January 30, 2007

An absorbent article was patented. The article comprises a flexible chassis defining front and rear waist regions and a crotch region extending between the front and rear waist regions. The front and rear waist regions are joined together to form a waist-hole and a pair of leg-holes. An absorbent member more rigid than the chassis is bonded to an inner surface of the chassis. The absorbent member has a decorative element adapted to be seen through the chassis and placed in at least one of the front and rear waist regions. The chassis has transversely opposite lateral zones and an intermediate zone between the lateral zones. The intermediate zone has an optical transmittance higher than that of the lateral zones. Transversely extending elastic members are positioned in the waist regions and between the waist-hole and the leg-holes to extend across the decorative element without causing substantial contraction of the decorative element.
