September 14, 2010

This unitary disposable absorbent article includes an absorbent core having a garment surface and a body surface, a liquid permeable topsheet positioned adjacent to the body surface of the absorbent core, a liquid impermeable backsheet positioned adjacent to the garment surface of the absorbent core and an elastically contractible dual cuff. The dual cuff has a proximate end and a distal end. The dual cuff is joined to the article by an intermediate bond. The first cuff is disposed between the proximate end and the intermediate bond. The second cuff is disposed between the intermediate bond and the distal end. The dual cuff is constructed of a continuous cuff material and enclosed by a cuff end bond. The second cuff is spaced away from the backsheet, which extends outboard of the distal end.
