The side panels (3) each have first and second panel sheets (31, 32), and an elastic member (33). At least the first panel sheet (31) has laminated structure portions (31A, 31B) in which the end on the absorbent body (2) side or the end on the distal end side of the side panel (3) folds back to the inside.
