I've made several of these types of tutu's.  You have to use alot of tulle to get that effect.  To give you an idea of how much tulle, for my 2 y/o I use 75 yards of it to get it poofy, so for an adult, you might have to aim for 100-125 yards ( or maybe more)........

You might try this.  Two layers of tulle with a gathered layer of matching color or coordinating color nylon net.  Much stiffer and holds up.  Layer it between the tulle so the soft tulle touches the babys skin but with the stiffer nylon net giving body.

I had the same problem with the first couple I made. You really have to use above and beyond the amount ever dreamed of tulle to make the things really poofy! I mean, gobs and gobs of tulle!
