Ciara tacked down Grammy dress

Ciara had to tack down her dress before she went to the Grammy Awards last week because she thought it was going to blow up and flash her bits to the world.

Ciara tacked down Grammy dress

Ciara spent hours "tacking" her flesh-flashing dress down ahead of the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles last week.

The 30-year-old singer had no problem showing off her sun-kissed skin at the glamorous ceremony in her black body-con crystal-embellished frock but has admitted she and her team spent a long time pinning it down to protect her dignity in case an unexpected gush of wind blew it up on the carpet.

She explained: "Through the fitting process, I got my confidence and I knew it was going to be fine. We kind of made sure we tacked it in places that it could blow. When I was walking, though, I first got to the carpet, and I was like -- OK, let me make sure everything is in place."

And, although her legs, chest and arms were on display, the brunette beauty - who gave birth to her son Future just nine months ago - didn't work out rigorously prior to the event.

She told PEOPLE.com: "I didn't specifically train for that day. I definitely cut back on some food. Making sure I'm not over-indulging, don't want the belly to bulge.

"There is a unique way to eat on the day of red carpet. You just scale everything back -- even water... You just refrain from doing all the heavy foods that are going to make you bloat. And then cut the water intake back too."
