Which hoop should I buy?
We're frequently asked which hoop is right for me? There is many hoop sizes, types and weights....
So here is your guide!
Heavy vs. Light
The heavier the hula hoop the easier it is to hula hoop with because the weight slows it down for you to perfect the movement.
We suggest beginners to start with our Dance/Fitness Hula hoops.
Dance/Fitness Hula Hoops
This range is a medium weighted hula hoop perfect for beginners and on-body hooping.
Polypro Lightweight Hula Hoops
This range is a light weighted hula hoop perfect for intermediate hoopers and a mix of off body hooping and on-body hooping.
All our sizes are in centimeters and measure the outer diameter of the hula hoop.
The correct size for you depends on your height and weight. If you are taller or bigger around the middle you need a bigger hula hoop.
Usually, for a beginner a good size would be for the hula hoop to reach your belly button from the ground.
70cm - Mini hoops or children under 6 years

All our dance/fitness hula hoops are 3/4 inch in diameter which is a great size for waist or hand hooping. Our polypro range comes in 3/4 inch and 5/8 inch width. 3/4 inch is the most common however intermediate hoopers sometimes prefer the smaller size of the 5/8 inch, especially when using 2 or more hula hoops. If you are unsure which size to get we advise getting the 3/4 inch polypro hoop as your first polypro lightweight hoop.
TAPED OR UN-TAPED?
The big question!
Well, taped hoops will weigh more than un-taped. Un-taped hoops are less likely to show scratches while taped hoops will and the tape will fade in the sun and be ruined with water.
What do we recommend?
It's personal preference! Perhaps one of both?!
Our owner, Kiera Blaney, has un-taped hula hoops for practicing/workshops and she saves her 'Gatsby Gold' Polypro taped hula hoops for shows.
