Default TuTu HELP! Please:)

OK, so I never make tutus. I only sell pettis in my store. But after all this talk about contriversal tutus, I had to try to make some for my DD. I put one together. It turned out pretty good. But now I want to improve it and I have some questions. (Yes, I did try to google it but you wouldn't believe how many threads have the word tutu in it!)
I keep seeing people make tutus with the crochet headband waist. Is that a 1.5 or a 3" band? Are they any bigger than usual?
Also, I want my tutus to be extra poofy, almost so they stand up about the waist band on the top. Here is a link;

Also, I like when the tulle lays really straight like this;

Is it because it is sewn? Or because it is by the yard, and not on the spool?
Can anybody offer me any advice or point me in the right direction?

that rainbow one is adorable. I have the same issue. i can tell you what i do and what i am going to try.
I use 1" no roll elastic, I cut my strips and "loop" them on one at a time. it comes out full but not that puffy. what i may try is using more that one strip at a time. so instead of tying on 1 strip at a time i am going to try tying 2 or 3 at a time. KWIM???

It looks like the ones that stand up are made out of a heavier or stiffer tulle. Do you think?

I make some for dance constumes similar to this. You make the layers progressivly longer working up. So the bottom layer is short and cut them a bit longer till you reach the top layer. it is not this skirt but very similar.
