What to wear?!
We all know how important what hoop we use is, in terms of size, material, etc. But what you're wearing can also make a huge difference in your flow, and whether you'll have success nailing that new trick.
*Skin in best! When on body hooping, having exposed skin can make ALL the difference. This is especially true in shoulder hooping and leg hooping. These tricks are often a little tough because the movements are so atypical of the way we move in regular life. Even better? Sticky sweat on skin! Luckily I live in Houston so there is rarely a day that doesn't include sweat lol.
*Cotton clothing. Nothing will make a hoop slide down quicker than those silky, slippery leggings. Which is a bummer because those are usually the coolest looking ones. Stick to the softer leggings, shorts, and shirts. I personally love those cheap 2 pack biker shorts from stores like Ross. The fabric is perfect!
*Cut it up! Grab your scissors and get creative. Cutting spaces where the hoop hits your legs or shoulders is a great way to help keep the hoop up and give you an edgy look.
*Protect your feet. Flip flops and sandals that aren't connected to the feet are an accident waiting to happen (believe me, I know). Sneakers, Chacos or Tevas, even bare feet (if the ground is clear of obstructions!), are a way safer option. Your flow is going to feel and look so much better when you're not subconsciously worried about tripping.
