sheer curtains may or may not incorporate lace or other patterns; \"sheer\" indicates that they are transparent or semi-opaque but allowing light to filter into the room in contrast to curtains or drapes, which are made of solid fabrics

neutral  Hanna Stochnialek: sheer znaczy tu przezroczyste, ale nie wszystkie przezroczyste zaslony po polsku nazwalibysmy firankami (tak mi sie wydaje jak na kobiecy rozum). W polskim uzusie firany sa koronkowe, sheer curtains moga ale nie musza byc z koronki

  -> Google: net curtains - 8,500; sheer curtains - 8,950; in the U.S. - "sheer" is more prevalent than "net"
