How to measure for a Beginner:
Measure vertically from the floor approximately to your navel or the top of your hip bone. This would be your approximate beginner size. If you have a larger body size you will want a slightly bigger hoop. If you have a smaller body size you will want a slightly smaller hoop.
Taped Beginner hoops come in a lovely, hand-picked variety of our favorite tapes, and also can be easily customized! If there’s a decorative tape we have in our Hoop Tape section of the store, we can tape a custom Beginner hoop for you! 😀
Polypro hoops and Beginner hoops cannot be returned or exchanged once shipped.
Hoop Size Rule of Thumb:The larger & heavier a hoop is, the more slowly it will travel around your body. The slower movement gives more time to feel where the hoop is making contact, and to react.
Large hoops are great for beginners and practicing new moves, as they spin around your body more slowly. Larger, heavier hoops are also wonderful for exercise, as the added weight of the hoop engages your core during waist hooping.
Waist hooping can be quite meditative with a slower hoop, allowing you to relax into a routine and enjoy simpler moves while focusing on strengthening your core and keeping the hoop in place.
Larger hoops also tend to weigh more than smaller hoops and the extra weight gives the hoop more momentum as it travels around you, which is another element helps your hoop to stay up.
A 39" OD Beginner Hoop weighs about 1 lb, and a 42" OD Beginner hoop is 1 lb, 3 oz. All Moodhoops are measured by the outer diameter (OD). This is the distance across the widest part of the hoop, including the width of the tubing.
