When you are ready to order your own aerial hoop, you want to purchase the correct size.
Here is one suggested way to determine the best size:
From a seated position, put your hand on your head, then make a fist. The measurement from the top of your hand to where you are seated will be the size of your hoop.
If you are NOT very flexible, have your fist with the fingers down against your head. Measure the distance from the top of your hand to your bottom.
If you ARE very flexible have your fist with the base of your hand against your head and measure the distance from the top of your hand to your bottom.
The last type of measurement used by many people over the past 10 years is to use the length of your leg as the size of your hoop.
Hoops are sized by inches so the size is measured across from center of the metal tubing to center of the metal tubing.
Our hoops are hollow steel that is 11 gauge. They have a variety of tab styles, including no tab, at the top. Take a look at: http://aerialfabric.com/product-category/aerial-lyra-hoops/
