A woman was mortified after receiving a note from a neighbour saying they could see everything when she showered.
Sarah Yates was on holiday when her cousin, who shares the house with her, sent her a photo of the letter posted through their letterbox on Friday.
The journalist from Edgeley, Stockport, has recently renovated her first home and refitted the bathroom and installed new brighter lighting.
A neighbour from the back of her terrace house wrote the note to save Sarah and her flatmate the “embarrassment” of knocking on the door.
It read: “When you shower you can see everything. Didn’t want to embarrass you by knocking on”.
Sarah, 26, who is currently in Rhodes, Greece, said: “I received a text with the letter pictured from my cousin and was totally shocked.
“I assumed you could see our figures through the frosted window but I didn’t realise they could see everything.
“The previous owner had an old bathroom in and a dimmer light so they mustn’t have been able to see them showering before.
“I’ve put a new suite in and installed spotlights which are quite bright so it must have made a difference to what they can see.”
Sarah says she has switched the lights on and stood in the garden to see how much can be seen.
She added: “It’s just our outlines you can see but they obviously don’t want to have to see that through their windows.
“Once I’m back from my holiday I’ll be isolating for 10 days so I’m going to spend some time in the garden putting some taller plants in front of the window for extra privacy.
“It is all quite mortifying really.”
