My favourite is 32" :) I hope you like it! I feel bulky with a 36 but smaller than 32 is annoying on body.
I also am using a 32 right meow! Hoping to downsize an inch here soon :)
I love my 32" but I think 30" is almost just as wonderful. 34" was super roomy so if i'm feeling slower movements then I'd break out that hoop. Sometimes tubing size plays a role in the size. 34" poly in 1/2" tubing size feels a lot different (to me) than 34" in 3/4" tubing size. I love 32" in 3/4" because it's a pretty happy medium. Not too roomy (I like my 27" xl mini a lot but it's just...so tiny and not for everyday), but not too restricted. I can still do jump throughs quite easily and hooping isn't too fast nor too slow.
I have 34'' polypro and 30'' HDPE children's hoop. I could imagine that a 31'' would be perrrrfect for my style and purposes :) isos and on body would be both easy.
plus smaller hoops look pretty to my eye. They are somehow more sensual and cool in my opinion.
Ha. I feel like such a weirdo! My favorite is 37. But that's my mellow, body rocking hoop size. If I'm doing multiples and upbeat music I'm using 34/35".
Most of my hoops are 33". 32"-33" is my happy place to be able to do everything, including poi hooping easily. I love rocking out smaller hoops, but find it hard to vertically chest hoop without doing tons of breaks/barrel rolls. I also love occasionally grooving in a big 36" to slow tunes, and to really slow down movements.
I enjoy my 33" hoops. I do have 28" and 36" as well but it doesn't seem to get as much attention as the 33" hoops. :)
30inch is my favorite size because it fits well with my body type and hooping style :)
I like 31-32!
Gotta love them all! I just got a 33" LED and I somewhat regret not getting it in 36".... the 36 just allows so much flowy dancy movement. But I always go through phases.... sometimes I'm feeling the off-body quick iso tricks and get to whip out the little hoops :)
My current fav is a 32" 3/4 polypro...perfect size for me to do both on and off body hooping. When I'm feeling particularly mellow I'll break out my 34" 3/4 polypro, since it allows me to slow down a bit. Also borrow my daughter's 33" Mood hoop occasionally ;)
