AbstractReference is made to shorts or little skirt with an integral inner slip in which the shorts or little skirt on the one side, and the inner slip on the other side, are knitted together as one piece along their waistbands. A double layer knitting manufacturing process is described according to which the shorts or little skirt on the one side, and the inner slip on the other side, are knitted together in paralled rows along a common waistband running perpendicularly to their body axes, and pairs of shorts/skirts and inner slips are knitted continuously to subsequent pairs along common doubled seamed separating zones. Individual pairs of shorts/inner slips are then separated from the next pair and each pair is then subsequently folded into itself along a flexible transition point located in the waistband. According to the invention, the products are used to hold absorbant insert pads for use by incontinent adults.
