Additional policies and FAQs
1. How do I determine sizing?

We've surveyed a vast number of resources to determine average numbers for children's sizing, including major retailers and pattern makers. We currently offer 4 sizes, but also provide custom sizing for free (see more information in the FAQ’s below).

Age Waist Length

0-12 mos 18” 6”
12 mos – 2T 20” 10”
3T – 4T 21” 11.5”
5T – 6T 22” 13”

2. What are your standard color offerings?

I currently carry 14 colors of tulle (nine regular colors and 5 shimmery shades) and plan on adding additional colors as customer requests come in. Our regular tulle colors are light pink, pink, white, yellow, blue, lavender, bright purple, black, and wine. Our shimmery shades are lavender, fuchsia, light blue, turquoise and pink.

3. Do I have the ability to order a custom tutu?

Absolutely! Our focus is to provide durable and sassy tutus for little girls. We welcome requests for custom color combinations and/or specific sizes and will be happy to work with you. Custom waist sizing for any tutu in the 0 – 6T range is free. I am also able to customize the length. Tween, teen and adult pricing is available at an additional cost. Please contact us by phone (480) 254-8804 or email: melanie [!at] tutubug.com.

4. Am I able to request alternate colors of ribbon on my tutu?

Of course! Just let me know what color of bow you would prefer in the special instructions box on your order form and I will be sure to make any necessary changes.

5. Are your tutu’s full and fluffy?

Besides our high quality materials and our careful attention to detail, another great thing about tutu bug tutus is how darn fluffy and full they are. To achieve this, we purchase our tulle in 40-yard bolts – which are 54 inches wide and then use approximately 4-5 yards from the bolt on each tutu (varies based on waist size). The end result is nothing short of pizzazz!

6. Are your tutu’s hand tied or sewn?

A strip of high quality elastic is sewn together to form the waist band. The tulle is then cut into identical length strips and then carefully and precisely hand tied onto the elastic waist band while maintaining the correct length and fullness. Finally, the ribbon is cut and then double knotted onto the final product and pulled tight to prevent unraveling under most circumstances.

7. How long does it take before you ship my order?

All orders will be shipped within 2 business days (Mon-Sat), unless we are out of stock on one of the colors in your tutu. Tutu’s are not made until you order them, but will be completed accurately and quickly to ensure that the little princess in your life may begin enjoying her tutu as soon as possible!

8. How much is shipping and handling?

Tutus ship FREE within the continental U.S. – regardless of quantity. We use USPS Priority Mail and provide you with a tracking number. There is never a handling fee for any of our products.

9. How will you ship my tutu so as to ensure it doesn't get damaged or arrive wrinkled?

Thankfully I have an extremely particular husband who thinks about details like this! We searched high and low to secure a box that was sized "just right" so as to preserve the shape and look of your tutu bug tutu. The best part? These boxes are issued by the U.S. Postal Service and are no additional cost to us or you! While we can't safeguard against unforeseen shipping mishaps by the carrier, we want you to be fully satisfied with your tutu. As such, we guarantee its condition upon arrival or we will make it right with a prompt replacement! *Please note, if tutu does come a little wrinkled or misshapen simply 'comb' with your fingers starting from waistband, working your way down through the tulle and it will revert to its proper form very quickly!*

10. How do I ensure my child has a safe and pleasant tutu experience?

We source our tulle from a provider who verifies the tulle has met conformity pursuant to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. Furthermore, all of the tulle we use does not exceed 100 PPM in lead during the manufacturing process.

We strongly recommend younger children be supervised by capable adults in the event that the child attempts to use or wear the tutu in a way that it was not intended. As with any clothing item, children should not attempt to wear the product around their head or neck, which could result in suffocation or strangulation. Tutu bug cannot be held liable for neglect exhibited by parents or caregivers who were ultimately responsible for the child’s wellbeing.

11. How will I handle all of the newfound attention and compliments my daughter receives while wearing her sassy tutu bug tutu?

Yeah, we hear ya – it takes some getting used to. You’ll manage.
