CBS has issued a wardrobe advisory to its talented guests.

Flesh-flashers beware! CBS, who is broadcasting the 55th Grammy Awards this Sunday (Feb. 10) has issued a “wardrobe advisory” notice ahead of Sunday's ceremony. The advisory encourages scandalously clad celebrities to cover up their bodies.

“Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered,” the statement begins — a line that should concern artists that have dared to be risqué (Hello, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna).

'Thong type costumes are problematic,” it continues. “Please avoid exposing bare flesh 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.”

The annual showcase has certainly seen its fair share of controversial and skin-baring acts and daring red carpet arrivals in the past. In 2000, Jennifer Lopez arrived in a cleavage-revealing sheer Versace gown. In 2010. P!nk’s barely-there costume during her aerial performance shocked a few.

Not only is the network paying particular attention to attendees partial nudity, but guests are also asked to not wear clothing that reveals its maker.  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.”

Yikes, this advisory seems quite strict for one of the biggest nights in music! But better safe than sorry, right?

Do you think attendees will follow the stern dress code?
