Implied / Covered

What most people refer to as ‘Implied’ shots are actually two different types- covered and implied. ‘Covered’ refers to the fact that the model is actually nude (or topless) and is covering the areas normally covered by lingerie with something (hands, hat, etc.) while ‘implied’ means that the model still has a swimsuit or something else on and is doing the same covering of the area to imply nudity.
