Default How to ship a tutu!

I'm having problems working out how to ship a tutu later this week, I'm going to wrap it in and put it in a box, Just looking on Ebay at boxes and I'm unsure which size is best ( I don't want it too large that it will slip about but not too small that I need to fold it several times) I'm going to purchases a pack of boxes so I need them to suitable for all Tutu sizes.
any advice on box size?
Thanks!!!

I use 12x12x8 prority boxes. I prefer not to wrap or fold my tutus since they don't look as fluffy when you take them out. When shipping 1 tutu I just place it inside the box waist down and when the customer opens the box all they see is a big fluffy tutu when I ship more than 2 then I do wrap them in tissue to fit them in the box. I can fit 8 tutus in a 12x12x8 box and 4 floor length or tutu dresses.

It depends on where you are shipping to. I shipped 2 tutus, 3 hats, and 10 bows 1 state away and it cost me $7.50, 1 tutu probably would have been $5.25....

It depends on the weight and also the further away from you it is going the more it will cost. To send 1 tutu in the same package to say FL (from SD) it would probably be $8-9.

* this is using the 12x12x8 priority mail boxes

The most it ever cost is around 8.50 and that is for 2 or more tutus shipped to CA and i'm in NC. It's usually around $4.90-$6.20. I justfind it easier to use one size box for everything. I order 3 cases at a time online (25 boxes a case) and it usually takes 1-2 weeks for me to get them.
