The Grammys have been known for some wild fashions, but this year, CBS is looking to tone it down a notch or two… preferably all the way down to the knees.

Deadline reports that CBS Standards and Practices sent an email to the Grammys staff late Tuesday night as a “wardrobe advisory” for Sunday’s event. The advisory calls for a massive cover up, so audiences won’t be exposed to the likes of “buttocks and female breasts” as well as the “genital region.”

According to the report, here’s the new fashion policy for the show…

“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.”

The 55th Grammy Awards will be shown on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m.
