Mindy Kaling is constantly dropping fun behind-the-scenes wardrobe snaps from The Mindy Project on her Instagram, from her previews of Mindy Lahiri’s colorful outfits to scenes of her chatting with costume designer Salvador Perez instead of memorizing her lines (whoops). And then there was that time her “physical comedy” was so intense, she actually split her dress on set (lucky for her, she had someone to sew her right back into it). But on Monday, she revealed one of her most, well, intimate secrets yet: How she gets away with her “nude” scenes.

Kaling showed off her skin-tone-colored one-piece bathing suit on her feed, which she has lovingly named “Old Faithful.” Interestingly, the suit appears to be a one-piece swimsuit, rather than a bodysuit, which may have been the more obvious choice for this sort of thing. However, the trick makes perfect sense, when you think about it. Her bare shoulders are good to go, and the color of the suit is so close to her skin tone, it camouflages any close calls. And the lacy side panels are the perfect lingerie-esque touch for those sexy scenes too, no?

As of right now, Danny’s nude-scene secrets are still unknown. But we’ll leave you with this GIF of Chris Messina stripping anyway.

Just don’t say we never did anything for you.
