Being a bigger girl, I use a bigger hoop (46") and I have been hooping since April 2010. I am down on myself because I can't seem to do the cool tricks that seem easier with a smaller hoop and body. I can knee hoop, waist hoop, vortex, and step through the hoop, but that's about it. I cannot chest hoop no matter how many tutorials I follow... Can't booty bump... I just need advice. Is it possible with my body and hoop size??
Never fear you will work your way to a smaller easier hoop to manage cool tricks with. I am plus size and only 5ft 1 I just had to learn to use a 38 " hoop because anything bigger would hit the ground too often when I would booty bump and step throughs.
it is possible im was in your position too so much its kind of scary we both started the same time we are both queen sized and we started with almost the same size hoop. I can vouch when i say you can.
