(RNN) - CBS wants Hollywood to keep their boobs, "buttock cracks" and curves in check.

While many stars normally take to the red carpet at the Grammy's as a way to parade their amazing figures and fierce fashion choices, this year may be cautiously filled with turtlenecks and not so flashy attire.

According to the email sent by CBS, the network has banned all skimpy garments.

The guidelines apply to both performers and those in the audience to refrain from wearing anything that would/could expose the booty or the breasts.

In the memo, "thong type costumes are problematic," and to "please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure."

We dare not ask what "puffy" means.

"Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts" are also deemed "problematic." Visible buttock curves or "buttock crack" are also a no-no, as is "sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples."

But CBS is not just banning bare skin; obscenity printed on wardrobes also is prohibited.

We all remember JLo's sheer, cleavage bearing, navel showing, tropical body curtain that made many jaws drop in 2000. Anything close to this could get a celeb kicked out of the fancy affair.

In 2010 the green glittery body thong Lady Gaga wore while performing Poker Face would get her kicked off the stage this year.

Good thing Pink already got away with her overly revealing outfit in 2010 that resembled a packing tape mishap that was glitterbombed.

The list could go on and on for the most remembered risqué Grammy goer, but we'll stop at three so we don't have to talk about bedazzled boobs or feathery messes.

Here's the CBS email, posted by Deadline:

"CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.

Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.

Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy' bare skin exposure. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts.

Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST.

This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera. Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent's wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory."

With the word now out, many viewers will likely be tuning in to see which celebrities dare to break these dress code rules.

This year's star studded 55th Grammy Awards is Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
