It's supposed to hold you in - but it seems Christina Aguilera's bandage dress was somewhat challenged as she appeared onstage last night.
Miss Aguilera continued with her recent streak of fashion disasters at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.
The Voice star bulged out of her bandage-style silver dress while performing the smash hit single Moves Like Jagger with Maroon 5.

As she was raised onto the stage mid-song on a glittery silver podium, Christina looked significantly heavier than the size four she has claimed to be.
Round as a pound: Christina flaunted her new curves
Her hair, which she wore in long curls, was heavily bleached and she finished off the brassy look with silver sequinned peep-toe platforms and glittery eye-shadow.
Kelly Osbourne recently took great pleasure in criticising Aguilera for her weight gain on the E! show Fashion Police.

Osbourne was criticising Aguilera's appearance at the Michael Jackson tribute concert where the singer appeared on stage wearing clownish make-up, ratty hair and was dressed in an unflattering bodysuit with fishnet tights.
'Lady Marmalade got into the peanut better again,' added cohost Joan Rivers.

American Idol star Kelly Clarkson also appeared fuller figured but she chose to keep her curves under wraps in a full-length sequinned red gown.
The 29-year-old performed a jazzed up version of her single Mr Know-It-All off her new album Stronger surrounded by thirties-themed paparazzi dancers.
Clarkson recently joked about wearing two pairs of Spanx while performing on VH1's Unplugged: 'Oh dear God, can we just sing?' she said.
- The American Music Awards will be broadcast on Saturday 26th November at 10pm on Viva.
