    without cover.  the precise idea depends on what cover would be expected normally, of course.  A bare tree has a different lack of cover from a bare lady, although I suppose there must be some lady, at some time, that just employed leaves as cover.

    Not covered with anything. Someone not wearing any clothes is bare. A mountain top with no plants on it has just bare rock there.
