Advises about Tutu Care:
In order to help you enlarge the costume, we propose you the following:
An inner cord tightens the bodice at the chest level. It makes a knot in the middle of the back or on one side. Find it, please, untie and tie up larger by your taste.
Concerning the tutu: you will need for it the steam iron. Work up the inner part of the tutu on the waistline, where is the seam – do not touch the tulle with the iron, just treat it with the steam! The steamed skirt should be a little damp after it. Then enlarge it with the hands in different sides (widen the tutu on the waistline). Due the steam, you will be able to widen the tutu at the waistline with 4-5 cm.

Unpack Tutu then Shake, Finger-comb and Fluff: Gently ‘comb’ (or ‘rake’) your fingers through the tulle of the tutu, from waistband down to hem, removing any twisting, crumpling or knots. Hang up on a skirt hanger or other clipped hanger (or use a small child’s hanger).
Care for a Wrinkled Tutu: Do not iron! Steam works best. If you don’t have a clothing steamer, you can use an inexpensive humidifier. Set humidifier on a towel to catch any drips. With tutu on hanger, hold above the steam and slowly move tutu back and forth until it is straight and fluffy again. (I turn it inside out and do that side first, then flip it). Hang up. Another way to straighten your tutu: Spray with water bottle, hang, and let the weight of the water straighten it while it drips dries.
Tutus are made of nylon and/or polyester that is why the static cling is an issue. Try wiping each strip of tulle with a fabric softener sheet. Or spray with water and hang to dry. A solution of water and liquid fabric softener can also be sprayed on the tutu and worked through.
