  • Publication number: 20200038259
    Abstract: An article including a front region, a back region, and a chassis. The chassis may include an absorbent core having a front end edge and a back end edge. The front region and the back region may extend laterally outward beyond side edges of the chassis. The front region and the back region may abut to form a first seam and a second seam. At least one of the front region and the back region may include an elastic member. A first outer nonwoven layer of the front region and a second outer nonwoven layer of the back region may be folded to form an upper edge in the front and back regions such that a distal end of each of the first and second outer nonwoven layer may be disposed between the upper edge and the front and back end edges of the absorbent core, respectively.

  • Patent number: 9522088
    Abstract: A disposable absorbent article including a chassis. The chassis includes a front region having two opposing longitudinal edges, a back region having two opposing longitudinal edges, and a crotch region having two longitudinal edges. The crotch region is disposed between said front and back regions, and at least two side panels extend outwardly from the two opposing longitudinal edges of one or both of the front or back regions. The side panels may interconnect the front and the back regions to form a waist opening and a pair of leg openings.
