Patented is a hygiene article for single use. The article comprises an absorbing body layer with a means for long-term storage of body fluids or superabsorbing materials. The absorbing layer has a first region with a first mass per unit area of absorbing material and at least one second region adjacent to the first region. At least one second region has a second mass per unit area that is greater than the first mass per unit area. A first cuff element is attached to the hygiene article along a first cuff base line travelling longitudinally proximate to a first longitudinal side of the article. The first cuff element slants upwardly and inwardly away from the first cuff base line to rise above the absorbing layer at vertical heights there from. The first cuff element has a first inner, distal end separated from the first cuff base line by a first cuff element length, the first cuff element length increases in locations of the first cuff element bordering at least a partial region of the at least one second absorbing layer region. A second cuff element is attached to the hygiene article along a second cuff base line travelling longitudinally proximate to a second longitudinal side of the article. The second cuff element slants upwardly and inwardly away from the second cuff base line to rise above the absorbing layer at vertical heights there from. The second cuff element has a second inner, distal end separated from the second cuff base line by a second cuff element length. The second cuff element length increases in locations of the second cuff element bordering at least a partial region of at least one second absorbing layer region. The first and the second cuff elements define inwardly slanted walls for blocking transverse discharge, the first cuff baseline has a transverse separation from the second cuff baseline, which increases at locations of the first and the second cuff elements bordering the partial region of the at least one second absorbing layer region. The partial region is located outside of a middle, longitudinal section in a forward region and/or in a rear region of the hygiene article.
