The show judge's sparkling dress was the subject of a reported 235 Ofcom complaints, with people claiming they could see Amanda's nipples on account of the low neckline.
Now the TV star, 49, has taken to Instagram to fire back at her critics and call out any claims of a 'wardrobe malfunction'.
Addressing the negative reaction via her Insta Stories, Amanda wrote: "Mmmm really?! Who has nipples this close to their cleavage ?!"
The talent show judge added a laughing emoji, and went on to explain that the boned corseting structure was to blame for the shadowing effect that people had presumably mistaken for nipples.
"FYI. A boned corset dented the girls all night," she added, throwing in a couple of fried egg emojis for good measure.
Amanda's comments come after Twitter users rushed to her defence, pointing out that anyone who thought nipples were located that close to somebody's cleavage might need a basic refresher in biology.
One wrote: "Karens are saying this dress is inappropriate and you could see Amanda Holden's nipples. NO YOU COULDN'T.
"Those are shadows from where the dress doesn't touch her skin. Nipples aren't found in your cleavage and if they were areola, where are the actual nipples eh Sherlocks?
While another added: "They're clearly not her nipples it's a shadow."
Amanda isn't the only BGT judge to have come under fire for her wardrobe of late.
Last week, Alesha Dixon's Black Lives Matter necklaces sparked almost 2,000 complaints from viewers.
The judge, 41, wore the gold staggered BLM necklaces on Saturday's show in solidarity with dance troupe Diversity, after their political routine received over 24,000 complaints to Ofcom.
The defiant move won Alesha complaints of her own, with the broadcasting watchdog revealing it had received 1,901 complaints about her accessory choice so far.
Talking about the complaints regarding Alesha's necklace, a spokesperson from Ofcom told our friends at LADbible: "We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate."
Tyla has reached out to Ofcom for more information.
