Absorbent Article Including Barrier Leg Cuff Structure And An Elastically Stretchable Side Panel

April 5, 2011

An absorbent article has recently been granted a patent. The article includes a barrier cuff strip extending in a longitudinal direction from the front waist region to the back waist region along the topsheet. The barrier cuff strip has a distal edge attached to the topsheet at a cuff end bond region. The barrier cuff has an outer bond edge spaced longitudinally from an inner bond edge. The disposable absorbent article includes a side panel that extends laterally beyond a side of the chassis and is joined to the chassis at a panel joint region extending between an outer panel joint edge and an inner panel joint edge. The longitudinal distance from the lateral axis to the inner panel joint edge is at least about 1/4 of a longitudinal distance from the lateral axis to the inner bond edge of the cuff end bond region.
