This is just a random thought/probe to see what people think..
When I hoop, I usually hoop in jeans or shorts (so my legs are bare) (usually jeans cos I get cold easily). What about everybody else.
Particularly, does anybody hoop in skirts - both long and flowing and shorter. I've been thinking about it for a performance but I've never tried to hoop in a skirt and was just wondering if it'd just get in the way of leg hooping (my skirts tend to come to midway down my thighs).
What I am wearing usually affects how I hoop - more so from the feeling I get when wearing it than what restrictions it may create. In skirts it's all about sustained spinning - and they really are dramatic for performances. I'd say as long as you have some shorts underneath it's all good! Some flashing CAN happen if your hoop decides to play a trick on you and bring your skirt up behind you!
This is a useful topic for me! Since we're just heading out of winter, I've been wearing more pants than usual, but in warmer weather I wear skirts almost exclusively. It hasn't been a problem for me yet because I haven't advanced to leg hooping and step-throughs and that sort of thing yet, but I hope to make that progress soon.
I am not terribly self-conscious about people seeing my underwear, but maybe I should save others the embarrassment and wear hot pants or something. Anyone have recommendations for where to buy under-skirt shorts? I can't think where to begin to shop for them!
