Crossword Genius

Former lover sat bare (7)


I believe the answer is:


'bare' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'former lover sat' is the wordplay.
'former lover' becomes 'ex'.
'sat' becomes 'posed' ('pose' can be a synonym of 'sit').

(Other definitions for exposed that I've seen before include "Not hidden" , "Unmasked, revealed" , "in the nude" , "Laid bare" , "Deprived of protection" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
