Description

  The present invention relates to a sanitary short used by attaching an absorbent article to a crotch portion.

Absorbent articles such as sanitary products and panty liners are generally used by being fixed to clothing such as sanitary shorts by a fixing material such as a hot-melt adhesive applied to the clothing facing surface. In this way, the absorbent article is prevented from being deformed and the absorbent article is brought into close contact with the wearer's body to prevent liquid leakage from the absorbent article and to improve the feeling of wearing.
Conventional sanitary shorts are known in which the front body placed on the stomach side of the wearer, the back body placed on the back side, and the crotch part placed on the crotch part are formed from separate parts when worn. It has been.
In such conventional sanitary shorts, the fabric forming the front body and the fabric forming the back body were joined by stitching etc. on both sides of the wearer. A feeling of wearing may be deteriorated by the joining line.

Further, sanitary shorts are known in which each of the pair of leg portions is formed in a cylindrical shape. For example, in Patent Document 1, in a sanitary short that uses a sanitary napkin attached to a crotch portion, the crotch length from the center of the crotch portion to the undergarment (lower end of the leg portion) is set to 30 mm or more. Are listed.
Sanitary shorts with a cylindrical leg circumference like this have good fit to the wearer's leg circumference and prevent the sanitary napkin from slipping. Although it has an advantage that a gap is difficult to occur, the conventional ones have problems such as loss of adhesion between the fabric due to the joint and discontinuity of the fabric and a sense of discomfort at the joint.

  In addition, the technique which manufactures pantyhose etc. using the cylindrical knitted fabric manufactured using the circular knitting machine or the sock knitting machine is known (refer patent document 2).

Hereinafter, sanitary shorts of the present invention will be described based on preferred embodiments with reference to the drawings.
The sanitary shorts 1 (hereinafter also simply referred to as “shorts 1”), which is an embodiment of the present invention (also referred to as “first embodiment”), is used with an absorbent article such as a sanitary napkin attached to the crotch portion 4. Shorts.
As shown in FIG. 1, the shorts 1 includes a cylindrical waistline portion 5 and a pair of cylindrical leg periphery portions 6 and 6. The waist part 5 includes a front body 2 disposed on the stomach side of the wearer when worn and a back body 3 disposed on the back side of the wearer when worn, and the crotch part 4 is as shown in FIG. The panties 1 are located between the front body 2 and the back body 3 in the center in the width direction. In the wearing state of the shorts 1, the crotch length H from the center in the width direction of the crotch part 4 to the lower end of the leg part 4 is preferably about 5 to 100 mm, particularly about 20 to 50 mm. The inseam length H is measured in a form as shown in FIG. 1, and is performed in a state where the leg is mounted on a model imitating a leg from a woman's waist, and the leg is measured for a distance from the inner lower end.

  The shorts 1 of this embodiment includes a step of cutting a cylindrical knitted fabric 11A manufactured by a circular knitting machine into a length equivalent to one sheet of the shorts 1 (see FIG. 3A), and the cut cylindrical knitting. The one portion U in the axial length direction of the base 11 maintains a cylindrical shape, while a predetermined portion of the other portion D in the axial length direction of the knitted fabric 11 is cut to form a pair of side pieces 14 and 14, A step of forming the crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 (see FIG. 3B), a step of joining the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 to form the crotch portion 4 (see FIG. 3C). And the pair of side pieces 12 and 12 are manufactured through a step [see FIG. 3 (d)] in which the pair of side pieces 12 and 12 are formed into a cylindrical shape to form the pair of leg portions 6 and 6.

The waistline part 5 in the shorts 1 of this embodiment consists of the said one part U in the cylindrical knitted fabric 11, and is maintaining the cylindrical form in the cylindrical knitted fabric 11 used for manufacture as it is. Therefore, in the circumferential direction of the waistline portion 5, there is no joint portion formed by joining the knitted fabrics by stitching or the like, and the skin around the wearer's waistline is not marked with a joint line, Excellent wearing feeling.
The pair of side pieces 14, 14, the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 are formed by cutting the other part D of the tubular knitted fabric 11 as shown in FIG. 3B. And extending from a portion of the tubular knitted fabric 11 forming the waistline portion 5 (cylindrical knitted fabric forming the waistline portion).
In the shorts 1 of this embodiment, the waistline portion 5, the pair of side pieces 14, 14, the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 are formed from a single continuous knitted fabric (fabric).

  The crotch portion 4 in the shorts 1 of the present embodiment is formed by joining a front crotch piece 12 and a rear crotch piece 13 to each other. More specifically, as shown in FIG. 2, the front end portion 12 a of the front crotch piece 12 is moved from the front end portion 13 a of the rear crotch piece 13 in a state where the rear crotch piece 13 is overlapped on the inner surface side of the front crotch piece 12. The front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 are overlapped with each other by stitching the tip part 13a of the rear crotch piece 13 to the part 12b spaced from the tip part 12a of the front crotch piece 12. The crotch pieces 12 and 13 are stitched together at both side edges 42 and 42 of the portion 41.

  As shown in FIG. 2, the crotch portion 4 in the shorts 1 of the present embodiment includes an inner layer 4 </ b> A composed of a front crotch piece 12 and a rear crotch piece 13, and the front crotch piece 12 disposed on the outer surface side of the inner layer, The rear crotch piece 13 is provided with an outer layer 4 </ b> B made of the outer surface forming fabric 7. As shown in FIG. 5, the outer surface forming fabric 7 used in this embodiment includes a central portion 71 that overlaps the front crotch piece 12 and / or the rear crotch piece 13 and a pair of protrusions that respectively extend from the central portion 71. Parts 72 and 72. The protruding portion 72 is narrower in the same direction as the shorts front-rear direction than the central portion 71. The central portion 71 has a substantially circular shape, and the protruding portion 72 has a horizontally long rectangular shape or a trapezoidal shape with a thin tip. In addition, a constriction may be formed at a connection portion between the central portion 71 and the protruding portion 72.

Then, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 6, the inner layer 4A and the outer layer 4B are joined to each other at two locations separated from each other in the front-back direction of the shorts (the X direction in FIGS. 2 and 6). (Sewed). Specifically, at the joint 43 near the front body 2, the outer surface forming fabric 7 and the front crotch piece 12 positioned inside thereof are integrated by stitching, and at the joint 44 near the back body 3. The outer surface forming fabric 7 and the rear crotch piece 13 located inside thereof are integrated by stitching. Further, the inner layer 4A is not joined to the outer layer 4B between the two joint portions 43 and 44 described above in the front-back direction (X direction) of the shorts, and can be separated from the outer layer 4B. .
Further, in the front-back direction (X direction) of the length shorts between the joint portions 43 and 44, the length of the inner layer 4A is shorter than the length of the outer layer 4B. The lengths of the inner layer 4A and the outer layer 4B are measured along the surface of each layer at the center in the width direction of the shorts 1, and are measured in a state where no external force is applied to the shorts.

  Since the inner layer 4A is not joined to the outer layer 4B between the joint portions 43, 44, the skin facing surface of the inner layer 4A, which is a layer located on the wearer's skin side, of the both layers 4A, 4B (of the wearer The body part of the absorbent article can be placed and fixed on the surface facing the skin side, while the wing part of the absorbent article having a wing part can be fixed to the non-skin facing surface side of the layer. As described above, the shorts 1 of the present embodiment has a double crotch portion composed of two inner and outer layers that can be separated from each other.

When the sanitary shorts of the present invention have a double crotch part, the crotch part formed by joining the front crotch piece and the rear crotch piece to each other is either the inner layer 4A or the outer layer 4B constituting the double crotch part. It may be only.
In addition, since the length of the inner layer 4A between the joint portions 43 and 44 is shorter than the length of the outer layer 4B, the inner layer 4A can move from the outer layer 4B forming the shorts outer surface toward the wearer's skin when wearing the shorts. When the wing portion is formed on the sanitary napkin, the wing portion is easily inserted and fixed between the inner layer 4A and the outer layer 4B, and the absorbent article is disposed on the skin facing surface of the inner layer 4A. Can be fitted well to the wearer.

Further, in the shorts 1 of the present embodiment, the stitched portion (joint portion) between the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 extends over the entire circumference of the portion 41 where the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 overlap. Is formed.
As a result, the portion 41 where the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 overlap is larger in rigidity than a case where the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 are composed of only one knitted fabric or a case where the two knitted fabrics are simply overlapped with each other. It is increasing.
Therefore, by using an absorbent article such as a napkin fixed to the portion 41 where the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 overlap each other, the absorbent article can be satisfactorily fitted to the body.
Further, the crotch piece may be formed in a mesh shape from the viewpoint of improving the air permeability, and the extensibility can be enhanced by the mesh structure.

Moreover, although a pair of leg periphery parts 6 and 6 in the shorts 1 of this embodiment are each formed in a cylindrical shape as a pair of side piece 14 and 14 mentioned above, a pair of side piece 14 and 14 is formed. As shown in FIGS. 3 (c), 3 (d), and 5, each has a cylindrical shape including one protruding portion 72 of the outer surface forming fabric 7 in a part in the circumferential direction. In this way, the expression that the side piece is formed into a cylindrical shape, in addition to the case where the side piece is made cylindrical only, the case where the other cloth is interposed in a part of the circumferential direction is made cylindrical. Is also included. The ratio of the portion formed of the outer surface forming fabric 7 in the leg periphery 6 is preferably ½ or less of the circumference of the leg periphery 6, and 1/3 of the circumference of the leg periphery 6. The following are the viewpoints of imparting good physical properties (stretchability, etc.) based on the knitted fabric 11 to the leg periphery 6, the viewpoint of reducing the influence of discontinuity due to the joint, and (extending the wing around the leg) From the viewpoint of the wing fixing property of the napkin with wings).
In the outer surface forming fabric 7 in the present embodiment, a pair of edge portions 72a, 72a facing each other in the front-rear direction of the shorts of each of the pair of projecting portions 72, 72 is a pair of edge portions 14a, 14a is sewn. When the shorts 1 of the present embodiment is manufactured, as shown in FIG. 3B, when the other part D of the tubular knitted fabric 11 cut to the length of one piece of the shorts is cut. A cut line 15 that is substantially parallel to the axial length direction of the tubular knitted fabric 11 is formed in the cut line 15.

  When the outer surface forming fabric 7 is not used, the tubular structure of the leg periphery 6 is preferably a net-like structure, and is preferably formed with a circumference of the leg periphery 6 of ½ or less.

As shown in FIGS. 1 and 3, the rear body 3 of the shorts 1 of the present embodiment is formed with a hardly stretchable region 31 extending from the vicinity of the peripheral edge 50 of the trunk opening toward the crotch portion 4. More specifically, the difficult extension region 31 is formed in a range from a high elasticity region 51 (described later) provided in the vicinity of the peripheral edge of the trunk opening 5 to the joint portion 44.
The hardly stretchable region 31 is formed so as to extend in the longitudinal direction at the center in the width direction of the back body 3, and the hardly stretchable region 31 extends at least in the longitudinal direction than the portions 32, 32 located on both sides thereof. It is formed so as to increase the stress, and as a result, it is difficult to stretch when worn by the user.
The difficult elongation region 31 preferably has a tensile load at 50% elongation of 10 to 100 cN, particularly 15 to 30 cN, measured by the following method.
[Measurement method of tensile load]
When the direction from the waist to the crotch part is the longitudinal direction, a stretchable region is cut out with a size of 120 mm in the longitudinal direction and 10 mm in the width direction as a test piece, Tensilon tensile / compression testing machine RTA-100 (Co., Ltd.) Measured using Baldwin. The distance between chucks of RTA-100 is set to 100 mm, and 10 mm each of the upper end and the lower end in the longitudinal direction of the test piece is held by the chuck. The head speed is operated at 300 mm / min, and measurement is performed at 100% extension or with a 500 cN load as the upper limit. When the width direction of the test piece is less than 10 mm, conversion to a width of 10 mm is performed. An average value obtained by measuring three points of the test piece is defined as a tensile load in the difficult extension region.

  Further, the difficultly stretched region 31 is formed by increasing the fiber density in the portion of the knitted fabric 11 used for manufacturing the shorts 1 more than the portions 32 and 32 located on both sides thereof. That is, the difficult stretch region 31 is a stretch region that is a continuous knitted fabric by arranging another knitted fabric between the knitted fabrics forming the portions 32, 32 located on both sides thereof, or joining the knitted fabrics. It is not formed by forming portions 32 and 32 located on both sides of 31 and stitching another knitted fabric on the knitted fabric, but as shown in FIG. When the knitted fabric 11 is manufactured, the knitting method and / or the yarn to be knitted in a part of the knitted fabric is made different from other parts.

As a method of forming the difficult stretch region by replacing the knitting method, for example, by using a thread remover such as a tuck such as a deer in a flat knitting or a rubber knitting that suppresses the stretchability in the vertical direction rather than the stretchability in the horizontal direction. The longitudinal elongation can be adjusted.
As a method of forming the hardly stretchable region by replacing the yarn to be knitted, for example, a method of blending fibers (thick fibers, highly rigid materials, etc.) having higher rigidity than the portions located on both sides of the difficult stretch region can be used. . Further, it is possible to form the hardly stretchable region by using a method in which the number of fibers to be knitted is increased from the portions located on both sides.

  When the shorts 1 of this embodiment is worn by the wearer, the portions 32 and 32 located on both sides of the difficult stretch region 31 in the back body 3 are satisfactorily stretched in the longitudinal direction of the shorts 1 while difficult stretch is achieved. The region 31 does not extend relatively. Therefore, the crotch part 4 and the center part in the width direction in the vicinity thereof are attracted toward the wearer's crotch or the valley of the buttocks. Therefore, an absorbent article such as a sanitary napkin fixed to the crotch portion 4 can be fitted to the body better.

The fact that the hardly stretchable region 31 and the portions 32, 32 located on both sides thereof are formed from a single knitted fabric as described above means that the hardly stretchable region 31 and the portions 32, 32 located on both sides thereof are It is possible to prevent the properties of the knitted fabric from changing suddenly at the boundary portion of the knitted fabric, making it difficult to cause a sense of discomfort, and preventing the fit and wearing feeling from being deteriorated.
In addition, the length of the difficult extension region 31 in the longitudinal direction of the back body 3 is the length of the shorts measured along the outer surface of the shorts (from the body opening end of the back body 3 through the crotch portion, It is preferably 20% or more, particularly 30 to 40% of the length reaching the end of the body opening.

It is preferable that the tubular knitted fabric 11 used for manufacturing the shorts 1 of the present embodiment has elasticity in the axial length direction and the circumferential direction. The axial length direction of the tubular knitted fabric 11 is the longitudinal direction of each of the front body 2, the back body 3, the waist part 5, and the leg parts 6 and 6 of the shorts, and is the longitudinal direction of the crotch part. The outer surface forming fabric 7 is preferably stretchable in the front-back direction and / or the width direction of the shorts, more preferably stretchable in the front-back direction and the width direction of the shorts, but a material that does not have stretchability is used. You can also. The material for forming the outer surface forming fabric 7 is preferably a knitted fabric as in the other portions.
In the case where the inner layer 4A or the outer layer 4B has elasticity, the length between the joint portions 43 and 44 of the inner layer 4A and the outer layer 4B is measured in a state where both layers are cut out and contracted naturally.

  In addition, a high extension region 51 having a lace-like appearance is formed on the peripheral edge 50 of the trunk opening in the shorts 1 of the present embodiment so as to extend along the peripheral edge 50. The high elongation region 51 is formed by reducing the fiber density in the part of the knitted fabric 11 used for manufacturing the shorts 1 from other parts. That is, the fiber density of the high stretch region 51 is reduced compared to the portion other than the difficult stretch region 31 in the waistline portion 5. By forming the high-extension region 51 exhibiting a lace-like appearance in this manner, the wearer is not given the sensation of wearing sanitary shorts, so the feeling during use can be eased. In addition, the stretchability can be enhanced by the lace pattern.

  Moreover, although not shown in figure, the shorts 1 of this embodiment have the highly elastic area | region extended along this peripheral part in each peripheral part of a pair of leg opening part. The high elasticity region is formed by using a high elasticity yarn in the portion when the tubular knitted fabric 11 is manufactured. The high elastic yarn can be used alone or in combination with other yarns.

Next, sanitary shorts 1A (hereinafter also simply referred to as shorts 1A), which is another embodiment (also referred to as a second embodiment) of the present invention, will be described. Regarding the shorts 1A, points that are different from the shorts 1 of the second embodiment described above will be mainly described, and the same points will be denoted by the same reference numerals and description thereof will be omitted. For the points not mentioned in particular, the above-described explanation about the shorts 1 is applied as appropriate. The shorts 1A of the second embodiment also has an axial length direction of a tubular knitted fabric 11 manufactured by a circular knitting machine as shown in FIG. On the other hand, while maintaining the tubular shape of the one part U, the other part D in the axial length direction of the knitted fabric is cut to form a pair of side pieces 14, 14, a front crotch piece 12 and a rear crotch piece 13. The process, the step of joining the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 to form the crotch portion 4, and the pair of side piece pieces 14 and 14 are formed into a cylindrical shape to form a pair of leg surrounding portions 6 and 6. It is manufactured through a process.

In the shorts 1A of the second embodiment, when the other portion D of the tubular knitted fabric 11 is cut, the tubular knitted fabric 11 is cut as shown in FIGS. 7 (a) and 7 (b). A cut 15 having a portion 15a substantially parallel to the axial length direction and a portion 15b extending obliquely from the end of the portion is provided. The front crotch piece 12, the rear crotch piece 13, and the pair of side pieces 14 and 14 are formed by making this cut 15.
And the front crotch piece 12 and the back crotch piece 13 are joined in the aspect similar to the shorts 1 mentioned above, and the highly rigid crotch part 4 is formed. Each of the pair of leg portions 6 and 6 is formed by making each side piece 14 into a tubular shape by directly sewing the pair of edge portions 14a and 14a together. Only by joining the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 and making each side piece 14 cylindrical, as shown in FIG. 7 (c), the cylindrical leg periphery 6 and the crotch part. Since a gap is formed between the knitted fabric constituting the leg part 6 in the direction shown in FIG. 7 (c), both side edges of the crotch part 4 and under the front body 2 and the back body 3 are pulled. The edge is stitched [FIG. 7 (d)].

  Since the shorts 1A of this embodiment also has the waistline part 6 which maintained the cylindrical form of the cylindrical knitted fabric 11, the trace by the joining line | wire of cloth | fabrics is hard to be attached to a wearer's waistline. Moreover, since it has the form as shown in FIG. 1 similarly to the shorts 1 and has the cylindrical leg periphery parts 6 and 6, the completed state is excellent in the fit property with respect to a wearer's leg periphery. Moreover, it can manufacture efficiently as mentioned above using the cylindrical knitted fabric 11.

As mentioned above, although this invention was demonstrated based on the preferable embodiment, this invention is not restrict | limited to the said embodiment.
For example, in the shorts 1 and 1A of the above embodiment, the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 are overlapped and joined so that the rear crotch piece 13 is positioned closer to the wearer's skin side. You may overlap and join so that the crotch piece 12 may be located near a wearer's skin side. Further, instead of joining the front crotch piece 12 and the rear crotch piece 13 in a state where the respective front end portions are located at positions separated from the other front end portion, the front end portion 12a of the front crotch piece 12 and the rear portion The front end portion 13a of the crotch piece 13 may be sewn.
Further, as the outer surface forming dough 7, instead of using a sheet in which the central portion 71 and the projecting portion 72 are formed of one continuous sheet, separate sheets constituting each portion may be used. Further, the double crotch portion is formed by using the outer surface forming cloth 7 consisting only of the central portion 71, while the side piece 14 is formed into a single cylinder like the second embodiment, and the cylindrical legs A part may be formed.
Moreover, another material may be fixed to the inside of the crotch portion 4 in the shorts of the second embodiment to form a double crotch portion composed of two layers inside and outside.

Further, in the shorts 1 and 1A of the above embodiment, the difficult extension region 31 of the back body 3 gradually decreases in width from the vicinity of the periphery of the trunk opening to the crotch part. The width may be the same from the vicinity of the peripheral part to the vicinity of the crotch part.
In addition, the description omitted in one embodiment and the requirements of only one embodiment can be applied to other embodiments as appropriate, and the requirements in each embodiment can be appropriately applied between the embodiments. Can be substituted for each other.
In addition, examples of absorbent articles to be mounted on sanitary shorts include sanitary napkins, incontinence pads, and panty liners. The absorbent article to which the shorts are attached may not have a wing part. The wing portion in the absorbent article extends outward from both side edges in the longitudinal direction of the vertically long main body, and when the absorbent article is used, it is on the non-skin contact surface side of the crotch portion (inner layer of the double crotch portion). It is a portion that is bent and fixed via an adhesive portion or the like.
