Dita Von Teese has revealed that network executives were worried by how much cleavage she was showing during a guest role on CSI.

The burlesque star - who appears in upcoming episode 'A Kiss Before Frying' - said that bosses ordered her to wear less revealing clothing for her role as a school teacher turned nightclub dancer.

Von Teese told TV Guide: "There was a lot of network talk about my 'offensive cleavage', which I found interesting considering how much blood and gore there is. We had to take it down a notch."

The 38-year-old went on to say that she was pleased with her performance and is looking forward to watching the completed episode.

"I think it is important to try new things and I hope my efforts come off well," she said. "This was a much bigger role than I originally thought."

Von Teese's episode of CSI airs on January 20 at 9/8c on CBS.
