decollete

Here is my best explanation:

'uncovering parts of jugs' is the definition.
(decollete refers to a low neckline)

'officer allowed in river' is the wordplay.
'officer' becomes 'col' (I've seen this before).
'allowed' becomes 'let' (I've seen this before).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'river' becomes 'dee' (River Dee).
'col'+'let'='collet'
'collet' going into 'dee' is 'DECOLLETE'.
