Default Wrinkled tutus

Hello. I have been reading about tutus on the forum today and I am getting the urge to make them again. My question is this......how do you keep them from looking crappy after only a couple wears. I have three daughters and when they wear their tutus, it only takes a little while for them to get wrinkled and not look "pretty" anymore. I have steamed them, put them in the bathroom with the shower on hot, etc. And it really does help but I felt bad when I was selling a few because I knew they were going to need constant help to stay pretty. Is there anything that can be done? TIA!

Most of my buyers are getting tutus for one time wear. That being said, I think either misting them with water and letting them air dry or wetting your hands and running them through the tulle helps immediately.
People take showers every day (hopefully). So, how big of a deal is it to hang the tutu in the bathroom and let it steam?
Tulle is tulle. It's the nature of the beast that it's going to wrinkle with wear.

Great response. Tulle is a high maintenance pretty and its a constant battle but I always have at least one hanging in my bathroom on any given day! So pretty and its well worth the dress and play time my dd gets out of it!

the steam from a shower is the best way to go or sprits it and low on a blowdryer run your hands through it

Put them on a hanger and let them air out for a few days. If they are still wrinkled, spritz them with some water in a spray bottle and fluff with your hands. this should work great!

I use wrinkle reducer for clothes, it works great, dries fast and smells good.
