Tutu's bunching. How to prevent this?

Yes, try a slip, if you want you can do a search and find some stores here who make and sell slips for tutu dresses. Personally, I think a lining material would work better the the nylon style you find in a store.
Leggings are another thing to try if you have some available already.

I had to come back and share this, her price is amazing and I think it would make the traditional tutu dress much more comfortable to wear.

It's not what they have or don't have on under it, it's like the tutu material is sticking to itself... getting all clumpy instead of hanging loose and flowing. I did stitch in some slips already. This helped it from getting caught between their legs, but didn't resolve the clumping problem altogether. Thanks for the ideas, and the slipdress is so cute and affordable. Good ideas, but i am still stumped as to what to do...

Is it a really long tutu dress? I often wondered how those stayed "down". Tulle is so light it kinda floats and if it gets stuck...yup, you have those bunchy problems.
Hmm...I think its just the nature of tulle and the longer it is, the more likely it is to get stuck on itself. Maybe humidity plays a part too?
If it's static, try some hairspray between the layers, or put a light coating of moisturizer on your hands and "comb" though. Like you do for nylons when your skirt is sticking to it. ;) Not sure if your tutu is for personal use or sale though.
