Adult Tutus are available in a wide range of sizes to outfit many different body types. Some people may believe that tutus are only for little girls. But they are mistaken, adults wear tutus for many costuming purposes (as well as for fun on occasion).
Dancers, of course, wear tutus for rehearsals and performances. These dancing skirts are primarily worn in ballet and other lyrical dance forms. A classical tutu is most widely used in ballet. The classical version is a stiffer, shorter skirt and it sticks out horizontally.
A romantic tutu features a longer skirt and has a flowing feel to it. The skirt resembles old-fashioned petticoats. The bodice for both the classical and romantic versions is available in attached or detached styles, to suit the dancer’s preference.
While dancers wear tutus, there are other instances for adult tutus. These flirty skirts have seen resurgence recently and it seems like tutus are everywhere. From babies to adults – tutus can be found in any size. Many parents make tutus for their children to use as dress-up clothes or for beginning ballet costumes.
Tutus have become a popular prop for photo shoots. Homemade and dancing tutus are seen everywhere. You can find versions in clothing stores marketing them as tutu-like fashionable skirts. While the authentic dance tutus are generally sold in dance shops or custom-made for specific dancers, adaptations of these cute skirts abound.
Adult tutus are often worn to costume parties. Just because a woman is grown doesn’t mean she can’t embrace her inner Sugar Plum Fairy. While traditional ballet roles can inspire costumes, many ladies choose generic or nontraditional characters for costume balls. Fairy princesses, angels and butterfly fairies are costumes that often incorporate tutus. In addition to lovely visions of princesses and angelic creatures, many girls opt for a gothic costume along with a tutu. Pairing a tutu with combat boots, fishnet tights, died hair, dramatic make-up and chains is certainly an unexpected twist.
A petticoat-like skirt made of ruffles is readily found in women’s sizes. Many lingerie specialty stores and online retailers offer flirty tutus. More modest versions are marketed across the Internet offering women a chance to play dress up. Make-it-yourself tutorials offer instructions to those who want to create their own.
