Researchers for Procter & Gamble has patented a disposable pant-like garment comprising a main absorbent portion comprising a liquid permeable topsheet, a liquid impermeable backsheet and an absorbent core. T he main absorbent portion has a first waist region, a second waist region and a crotch region between and connecting the first and the second waist regions, the main absorbent portion having a first longitudinal edge and a second longitudinal edge;a first side portion connected with the first waist region of the main absorbent portion and having a distal portion extending transversely outward from the first longitudinal edge of the main absorbent portion, the first side portion having a garment facing surface and an opposing body facing surface, the first side portion comprising a first cohesive engaging area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the body facing surface and a second cohesive engaging area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the garment facing surface of the distal portion. A second side portion is connected with the first waist region of the main absorbent portion and having a distal portion extending transversely outward from the second longitudinal edge of the main absorbent portion, the second side portion having a garment facing surface and an opposing body facing surface, the second side portion comprising a first cohesive engaging area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the body facing surface and a second cohesive engaging area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the garment facing surface of the distal portion; and a third side portion connected with the second waist region of the main absorbent portion and having a distal portion extending transversely outward from the first longitudinal edge of the main absorbent portion, the third side portion having a garment facing surface and an opposing body facing surface, the third side portion comprising a first cohesive receiving area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the body facing surface and a second cohesive receiving area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the garment facing surface of the distal portion. A fourth sideportion is connected with the second waist region of the main absorbent portion and having a distal portion extending transversely outward from the second longitudinal edge of the main absorbent portion, the fourth side portion having a garment facing surface and an opposing body facing surface, the third side portion comprising a first cohesive receiving area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the body facing surface and a second cohesive receiving area defined by a cohesive substance disposed on the garment facing surface of the distal portion;a first frangible bond connecting the distal portion of the first side portion with the distal portion of the third side portion in an abutting facing relationship such that the first cohesive engaging area of the first side portion is directly facing and engaged with the first cohesive receiving area on the body facing surface opposite the second cohesive receiving area of the third side portion, wherein upon breaking the first frangible bond, the first cohesive engaging area of the first side portion may be refastenably joined with the second cohesive receiving area of the third side portion; a second frangible bond connecting the distal portion of the second side portion with the distal portion of the fourth side portion in an abutting facing relationship such that the first cohesive engaging arca of the second side portion is directly facing and engaged with first cohesive receiving area on the body facing surface opposite the second cohesive receiving area of the fourth side portion, wherein upon breaking the second frangible bond, the first cohesive engaging area of the second side portion may be refastenably joined with the second cohesive receiving area of the fourth side portion; andwherein the cohesive engaging and receiving areas do not include hook and loop fasteners.
