February 17, 2009

An absorbent garment for personal wear about the wearer's waist was patented. The absorbent garment comprises a garment shell configured for encircling the wearer's waist and having a front waist region, a front waist end at the front waist region, a back waist region and a back waist end at the back waist region. An absorbent assembly is located within the garment shell and constructed to take in and retain body exudates released by the wearer. The absorbent assembly has an inner surface adapted for contiguous relationship with the wearer's body, an outer surface, a front waist region in opposed relationship with the front waist region of the garment shell, a back waist region in opposed relationship with the back waist region of the garment shell and a crotch region extending longitudinally between and interconnecting the front waist region of the absorbent assembly and the back waist region of the absorbent assembly. A front waist end and a back waist end are also included. The absorbent assembly is releasably and refastenably attached at its front waist end to the garment shell at the front waist end of the garment shell. The absorbent assembly is also releasably and refastenably attached at its back waist end to the garment shell at the back waist end of the garment shell such that the absorbent assembly is selectively detachable from and reattachable to the garment shell.
