Jennifer Lopez's famous dress from the 2000 Grammys wouldn't meet the standards.

Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, and Taylor Swift are all set to appear at the 2013 Grammy Awards -- but two things that won't be making an appearance? Sideboob and "buttock crack."

Deadline obtained an email Wednesday from CBS Standard And Practice, outlining the network's "policy concerning wardrobe." The policy bans everything from "brand name products," to "thong type costumes," to "female breast nipples" (good news for you, male breast nipples!) -- read the full email below.

Tough break, sideboob enthusiasts. Read the relevant portion of the email below. Head over to for more.

-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-

***GRAMMYS 2013***

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.

Last year, Miley Cyrus was among the stars who sported sideboob during "music's biggest night."
