Similar Halachos of the bathroom
In the 3rd siman of the Shulchan Aruch is understood (by me) you should keep your body covered as much as possible, for example when a man goes to the bathroom (for number 2) he should uncover (acording to one version of the Braisa) 2 tefochim in the front (so that he will not spray it with his urine) or 1 tefach (the minimum needed) And from behind (acording to the first version) 1 tefach (the minimum needed) or (acording to the second version) 2 tefochim (becouse it is harder to keep his cloths clean in the back when he does not see)
By a woman it is always 1 tafach in the back
I can not imagine what do these tefochim mean, please explain it to me, (where the legs completely open?...).
i guess it has something to do with the clothing then and the sitting position but i still can not understand it
What does it mean physicaly, to reveal a tefach, 2 tefachs, in font, from behind?
