A method of using a composite waste-containment garment comprising a disposable, elasticized waste-containment insert secured by means integral with the insert inside a non-elasticized over-garment such as a conventional reuseable diaper, or a disposable diaper, or overpants, or the combination of a non-elasticized reuseable diaper covered with an outer-garment such as overpants having elasticized leg cuffs. The insert is so elasticized along its longitudinal side edges that, when properly secured inside a suitable over-garment, and the over-garment is properly applied to a wearer, the elasticized side edges of the insert are sufficiently tensioned to form liquid seals or leg cuffs along upper thigh regions of the wearer: particularly, along the inner spans of the upper thigh regions of the wearer. The method comprises the steps of laying the over-garment out flat; stretching the insert to substantially reduce its elastic induced contraction--preferably fully removing such contraction--and securing the insert to the over-garment while maintaining the insert in such a stretched state. The method may further include applying an outer-garment such as overpants having elasticized leg cuffs over the over-member, and dressing the leg cuffs so that the side edges of the over-member are disposed intermediate the leg cuffs of the insert and the outer-garment.
