A tutu is a skirt worn as a costume in a ballet performance, often with attached bodice. It consists of a basque (or waistband, as it can either be part of the bodice or a separate band) made of tulle, and the skirt itself might be single layer of tulle, hanging down, or multiple layers starched and jutting out.
The name derives from a child's alteration of the French cucu, informal diminutive of cul ("buttocks").
