Current winged absorbent products on the market are either opaque, transparent or translucent. A transparent/translucent wing hides the wing but not the stain and an opaque wing hides the stain but not the wing. Neither execution completely solves the consumer desire to be discrete or unnoticed when dealing with feminine care pads during menstruation. Coloring the translucent or transparent wing is a solution to obtain increased stain masking while still being able to disguise wings. A translucent colored wing will blend into various colored or white panties for wing discretion with the additional feature of masking stains.
