Patented is a disposable absorbent article that defines a front and rear waist section and an intermediate section, which extends between and connects to the waist sections. The article contains a pair of laterally opposed side edges and longitudinally opposed waist edges and a longitudinal and a lateral direction. A liquid-impermeable extensible outer cover, a liquid-permeable bodyside liner and an absorbent body are located between the extensible outer cover and the bodyside liner.
