comment Is it possible to sunburn through clothing?
@AdamMosheh: Think about curtains made from light or dark material of similar thickness. The room behind the lighter curtains will be lighter. This is because more of the light (and presumably more of the UV rays, but this depends on the material) is transmitted through the curtain. The effect on the damaging UV rays depends more on the fabric, but darkness of the fabric is a good indicator (given that you generally don't have a UV transmissivity measuring device on you in the clothing store).
