Heh, my wife discovered "bra flash" the other day. (Just in case: when the extra strong flash on digital cameras goes right through the otherwise non-transparent material and you can see what is underneath.)

backlighting is probably responsible for some of the sexiest pictures ever. When it highlights the subjects body in silhouette because it goes right through the clothing.

Back when I was a service writer, our counter faced the glass entrance, where we could see the sun rise, and shine right thru every dress that walked in. Good thing we were behind a counter.
