This listing is for a pre-made hoop made with 20mm MDPE tubing (intermediate tubing) which measures 38" from outer edge to outer edge. Discounted by ten percent compared to a custom item of the same specifications, as it may have incurred some very minor flaws in storage. Will ship within 2-3 business days, compared to the two week build time for custom items.
READY TO SHIP: 38" Intermediate/ Dance Spiral Taped Hoop
If you are a complete beginner, ie. you cannot waist hoop yet, or can waist hoop but still need to learn basic on body hooping techniques such as shoulder hooping, or if you predominantly want to hoop around your waist for health and fitness, choose a hoop in beginner tubing. This is thicker and heavier, and will therefore rotate more slowly and have more momentum.
To choose the diameter of your beginner/fitness hoop, measure from your feet to your belly button. Go with this measurement if you are petite, or go up by a size if you are tall and/or curvy.
An intermediate/dance hoop is better suited to those with some on body hooping experience who are learning fancy off body tricks, and who want to learn the art of hoop dance, or for those who are simply starting to find their beginner hoop a little too heavy and slow. Order a size or two smaller than your beginner hoop (or a size or two smaller than the measurement between your feet and belly button.)
