A shorts type disposable diaper includes an absorptive body having a liquid permeable topsheet, a liquid impermeable backsheet, and an absorber interposed between the topsheet and the backsheet. The absorptive body is divided into a stomach side portion, an under-crotch portion, and a back side portion, substantially continuous elastically expansible members being disposed over entire peripheral edge portions of a waist opening and a pair of leg openings which are formed by fixedly connecting confronting opposite side portions between the stomach side portion and the back side portion. The absorber is 8 mm or less in thickness and 100 mm or more in width in the under-crotch portion, and the distance from a side edge of the under-crotch portion of the absorber to the elastically expansible members disposed in the leg opening is 15 mm or more.
