Abstract (en)

A shower curtain 6 is provided to retain water in a shower area 4. In the closed position, the shower curtain 6 is retained at two sides 14, 16 of the shower area 4. Tensioning means in the form of resiliently extendable bands 18, resiliently expendable connectors 50, or an elasticated part 102 of the shower curtain are provided to impart tension to the shower curtain in the width direction when the shower curtain is retained in the closed position. The tension maintains the shower curtain taut, thereby retaining water within the shower area and preventing the shower curtain from blowing into, or out of, the shower area.
