Oh goody goody, the box is here!! nThe taping is gorgeous and well done and the shipping was very prompt. The box it arrived in was nice and sturdy. nThe customer service is amazing. Warm and very helpful, just an all around great experience. I had all of my hoop questions about sizing for different people and styles of hooping answered and given great tips on where to get started with hooping DVD's and some good Youtube video's to see as well. Can't wait to progress into some of the hoop tricks! n nI'm sure to shop with nicehoops again when I am ready for different hoop sizes to play with.
Here at Nice Hoops we are all about having fun. During the Summer, hoops are a great way to get outside with your friends and have a few laughs. During Winter, it's a great way to get some indoor exercise and shake the Winter Blues!
We're all at different skill levels of hooping here, but the learning process has been such a good time. We want to let people know that hoop exercise can be something for everyone. You can keep it on your waist or swing it around every limb! Whatever you do, just get yourself moving. It's a great reason to go outside too.
A loose rule for choosing a hoop size for learning dance moves is to measure from the spot between your belly button & chest to the floor and choose a hoop diameter closest to that number. We recommend rounding up in inches. Here is our simple guideline, just in case:
42” hoop (160 psi) is a popular size for all beginners
40” hoop (160 psi) is best for people 5’5” or shorter or want more speed
38” hoop (160 psi) is best for people 5’5” or shorter or want a lot more speed
Most people own many different sized hoops for dancing, so don’t worry if you think that you might pick the wrong size. I’m 5’5” and I like a 40” and a 42” while my friend is about 5’ and she likes the same sizes too. When her hoop dancing skills improve she’ll want to stick with a 40” and go from there. Feel free to ask if you’re not sure.
Accepted payment methods
Shipping is by FedEx Ground. Your hoop will be shipped in a box, not wrapped in paper "as-is" like the old days.
If your Etsy and PayPal shipping addresses do not match, I automatically ship to your Etsy address.
I cannot ship to PO Boxes because FedEx doesn't deliver to them.
PLEASE NOTE: I can no longer ship hoops to Hawaii or Alaska. The shipping to these states is too costly.
Refunds and Exchanges
Additional policies and FAQs
My tape vendor sometimes runs out of certain colors / styles for weeks at a time. In some cases your hoop will be the same color scheme in the photo, but different holographic designs within the tape. In this case I'll have it noted on the individual hoop's page.
All bulk orders of 6 hoops or more will be $25 / hoop. Shipping is still separate but you're more than welcomed to come get them if you're local.
If you ever need extra pieces of tape to mend spots, convo me and I’ll send you a piece from my stock for free. If tape forms a small slit at the connector seam, you could also use a piece of heavy-duty clear packing tape to protect it. This may happen as the hoop flexes. If your tape puckers at all, just press it back down. It won’t come off easily!
If something wrong with the hoop, please let me know before you leave a negative feedback. Customer satisfaction is my main goal, so let me try to make you happy before you leave your final decision.
