Default What width of tulle to use for tutus?

So I have yet to try making my dd a tutu, but would LOVE to make one for her for her bday the first week of June (and if it goes well enough, ALL the nieces may be getting one for their bdays this year!!). In a link in another post that goes to youtube, the lady uses 3" strips of tulle. I have seen others post on here that they use 4" or 6" strips. Can anyone tell me what the difference ends up being (looks, etc.) when you use different widths? What do you like better about one width over another? Pros? Cons? Thanks!!

I use 6 in strips and they work/look the best. They make the tutus look more full. When you use any smaller they krinkle up and look messy.
