How can we add privacy do bathroom windows without losing natural ligh

We have a garden tub that we never use. Our shower is very small. We plan to remove the garden tub and replace it with a larger walk-in shower. Our problem is the 4’ x 4’ window that is over the garden tub and will be in the shower. We have checked, and found that especially at night you can see in the window if the light is on in the bathroom and a person is standing close to the frosted window. We want suggestions of how we can provide more privacy when we take a shower. This is holding up progress on the shower. We are both in our 70’s and are making this change to provide a safer environment to shower. Any suggestions on how we can get more privacy? This is the only window in our bathroom and we don’t want to lose the natural light.
