|Freshly made kiddie hoops!|
One of the benefits to the hoops I sell locals, is that they include a custom fitting session and free mini-lesson. I make new hoopers a hula hoop specifically for the measurement that they provide. And then when we meet to complete the transaction, I let them try some other sizes.
Just as in Harry Potter the wand chooses you, my hoops choose the person. Okay. That's a stretch (analogies are not my creative forte), but even a relatively minor difference in a hoop's dimensions can sometimes affect how it feels around one's waist, so it's a treat to be able to try out a few options before making a final decision.
If you are purchasing your hoop from someone other than Alphabet Hoops and need to specify a set size and weight
As for life in general, a large factor in one's hooping success is attitude. To choose a hoop size:
- If you are confident and are thinking "Of course, I'll be successful!" --- order a hoop that reaches the top part of your navel.
- If you are unsure about your ability to hoop successfully and are thinking "Well, maayyyybbeeee I'll be able to hoop!" --- order a hoop that reaches from the floor to one inch above your navel.
- If you are positive that you can't hoop and are thinking "There is no way that I can hula hoop, I don't care what size the hoop is!" --- order a hoop that reaches from the floor to about the middle of your rib cage.
Good luck and may you have years of happy hooping ahead of you!
