WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. An absorbent article characterized by comprising:

a. a longitudinal direction, a transverse direction, and a depth direction;

b. a longitudinal centerline and a transverse centerline;

c. a first transverse direction end edge and a second transverse direction end edge; d. an opposing pair of longitudinal direction side edges extending between and connecting the first transverse direction end edge and the second transverse direction end edge;

e. an anterior region, a posterior region, and a central region between the anterior region and the posterior region;

f. a topsheet layer comprising:

i. a hydrophilic central layer extending in the longitudinal direction of the absorbent article and symmetrically straddling the longitudinal centerline, the central layer having a first longitudinal direction side edge and a second longitudinal direction side edge;

ii. a semi-hydrophilic first side layer having a first inner edge and in an

overlapping configuration with the central layer such that the first inner edge of the first side layer is positioned closer in the transverse direction to the longitudinal centerline than the first longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer; and

iii. a semi-hydrophilic second side layer having a second inner edge and in an overlapping configuration with the central layer such that the second inner edge of the second side layer is positioned closer in the transverse direction to the longitudinal centerline than the second longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer;

iv. a first region of overlap bordered by the first longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer, the first inner edge of the first side layer, a first portion of the first transverse direction end edge of the absorbent article, and a first portion of the second transverse direction end edge of the absorbent article;

v. a second region of overlap bordered by the second longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer, the second inner edge of the second side layer, a

second portion of the first transverse direction end edge of the absorbent article, and a second portion of the second transverse direction end edge of the absorbent article;

vi. a first body facing surface of the first region of overlap has a first area wherein from 10% to 35% of the first area contains a first embossment;

vii. a second body facing surface of the second region of overlap has a second area wherein 10% to 35% of the second area contains a second embossment;

g. a backsheet layer; and

h. an absorbent core positioned between the topsheet layer and the backsheet layer and having a first depression located in the depth direction beneath the first embossment and a second depression located in the depth direction beneath the second embossment.

2. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the hydrophilic central layer has a water contact angle at or below 59°.

3. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein each of the semi-hydrophilic first side layer and semi- hydrophilic second side layer have a water contact angle from 60° to 89°.

4. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the topsheet layer comprises an exposed region which has a width in the transverse direction between the first inner edge of the first side layer and the second inner edge of the second side layer of from 10 mm to 40 mm.

5. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the first region of overlap has a width in the

transverse direction between the first longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer and the first inner edge of the first side layer of greater than 10 mm.

6. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the second region of overlap has a width in the

transverse direction between the second longitudinal direction side edge of the central layer and the second inner edge of the second side layer of greater than 10 mm.

7. The absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the first embossment extends in the longitudinal direction of the absorbent article and has a portion located in each of the anterior region, posterior region, and central region of the first region of overlap and wherein the second

embossment extends in the longitudinal direction of the absorbent article and has a portion located in each of the anterior region, posterior region, and central region of the second region of overlap.

8. The absorbent article of claim 7 further comprising a first plurality of discrete embossments located in the central region of the first region of overlap and a second plurality of discrete embossment located in the central region of the second region of overlap.

9. The absorbent article of claim 7 further comprising a first plurality of discrete embossments evenly distributed throughout the anterior region, posterior region, and central region of the first region of overlap and a second plurality of discrete embossments evenly distributed through the anterior region, posterior region, and central region of the second region of overlap.

10. The absorbent article of claim 7 wherein the first embossment crosses over the first inner edge of the first side layer and connects to a first secondary embossment positioned in the anterior region of the exposed region, the first embossment crossed over the first inner edge of the first side layer and connects to a second secondary embossment positioned in the posterior region of the exposed region, wherein the second embossment crosses over the second inner edge of the second side layer and connects to the first secondary embossment in the anterior region, and wherein the second embossment crosses over the second inner edge of the second side layer and connected to the second secondary embossment in the posterior region.

11. The absorbent article of claim 4 further comprising a secondary embossment in the exposed region.

12. The absorbent article of claim 1 further comprising a surge layer.

13. The absorbent article of claim 1 further comprising a fluid intake layer.

14. The absorbent article of claim 1 further comprising a distribution layer.
