Tutu.com rents out beautiful, professional-quality ballet costumes for both men and women dancers. From tutus and tiaras to dance dresses and men’s tunics, we have many costumes from which to choose.
Individual Costume Rental for Soloists or Competitions
We rent to individuals competing in Competitions like the Youth America Grand Prix / YAGP, Prix de Lausanne, and other major international ballet competitions. We also rent principal and soloist’s costumes for many ballets - The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, etc.
Aside from the classics, we have contemporary tutus and assorted dance dresses available for rent as well. Some costumes come with headpieces. Those needing a more elaborate tiara can rent one separately or purchase one.
Entire Cast Rentals for Companies or Schools
Currently, we have the following full one-act ballets for rent:
- Sleeping Beauty Act III (The Wedding)
- Swan Lake Act II
- Graduation Ball
We are in the process of adding a full Nutcracker & Giselle.
Booking Your Rental
In order to start the process of renting costumes, we need you to do the following:

- Bust/Chest, Waist, and Hip measurements.
- EXACT date that you need the costume(s) in hand and the EXACT date you will ship them back – NOT JUST THE PERFORMANCE DATE. We need to know exactly how long the costume will be out of stock in order to quote you a price.
- Name of person responsible who will be signing the contract and paying for the rental. Also their email and phone number.
- Address to ship the costumes to.
- Once we have all this information, we will email you pictures of what costumes that will fit the dancer(s) are available during your time frame. We do not send pictures until we have this information.

Please use the forms below to send us accurate measurements.
Dancers should never measure themselves. Do not add “growing room” to measurements OR subtract from actual measurements for anticipated weight loss. We make each costume with as much “wiggle room” for change as is possible considering the complexity of the design.
Tutu.com Rentals are shipped USPS Express both ways, (1-2 days). Express Shipping averages between $40 and $50, but can be more or less. It depends on where the rental is going and what you rent. In our many years of experience shipping rentals, we've found USPS Express with one to two-day delivery to be the most cost-effective and efficient method for both the renter and Tutu.com.
