Default Tutu question

Hey ladies! I have a question, I make my tutu's with 6in wide tulle, and I use the no-sew method, but for some reason they do not seem as puffy as I see them on the internet. How do you make them so they puff up right? is it the way they cut them, or the way they tie them?

Here is an example of what I mean

I love the way it sticks up, but I can not get mine to do that. Any Ideas would be greatly appreicated!!

Thanks!!!

I do mine like the reversible color tutu (one knot up, one knot down) and they're always insanely poofy!! I tend to use a little extra tulle in there too (I squish my knots closer together)
Good Luck!!

I use 3 strips of tulle per knot, like the tut. suggested. But to get an even fuller tutu, I go through and seperate each layer. It takes a while, but you get a very poofy tutu! I also starch it. I don't know if it helps too much, but it doesn't hurt it ( plus it smells nice).
