Default Keeping a Tutu dress straight???? Pulling my hair out

Does anyone have any tips or pointers for keeping the tulle straight on tutu dresses? Mine get so crinkled up and wrinkly and I can't stand it!

Attached is my pic, see how wrinkled up they got, but in the pics in this link (which if this is yours, beautiful work) it's perfectly straight. Any thoughts?

easy fix!
2 tbsp of liquid fabric softener -and 1 cup of warm water-mix well -add to a spritz bottle and lightly mist the tulle and fluff with hands to smooth out the cling and wrinkles-do this before the tutu goes on -day before hang up in the bathroom put a HOT steamy shower going for 10-15mins and "steam" out the wrinkles --
I find its mainly static cling that makes the tulle stick --carry the spritzer with you (if your with the child ) and spritz it lightly -dont saturate the tulle -

That shower idea is great, you could even put something in the care directions about that.

I noticed a difference in the size of strips. Are you perhaps using bolt tulle? When I used that it would wrinkle when I cut it in smaller strips. The 6 inch rolls seem to work really good for me.

I make my own wrinkle reducer mix, using fabric softener. I spray the tutus pretty good and once they dry the wrinkles are gone and they smell great!

No I don't use bolt, use the 6 inch rolls and cut in half so that it's 3 inch strips. Maybe keeping them at 6 inch strips instead would help?

I love the idea of the fabric softener. I'll definitely be trying this. I have a tutu that I'm making myself for Halloween and it is pretty long in the back. I was worried about the clinging and not laying down when it's only half way done and already everywhere.
