Hi, my name is Jess Wagstrom!
I have been making adult-sized hula hoops since 2008, when I first discovered hoop dance.
Along the way, I found myself drawn to the alchemy of hoop making, figuring out the best size and weight for maximum hoopability, the proper ratio of clingy grip tape to shiny glitz and color. I became the go-to hoop girl in my local DFW community, and eventually began sharing the hoop love worldwide thanks to Etsy.
In 2012, I began making hoop dance tutorials for YouTube, where I discovered that many women responded to seeing a fellow curvy girl in the hoop. I realized that many of these hoopers were relieved to find someone out there who looked like them, and was thrilled to inspire them to pick up their first hoop!
I’m a staunch believer in the power of big, heavy hoops – they’re a useful tool for hoopers of all levels, but especially for those of us with a bit of extra fluff on our bones who are just dipping our toes into the hooping world.
My goal is to make hooping accessible to EVERYBODY, and to break down any fear or intimidation you might feel. Regardless of your shape, size, age or gender, I’ll help you get a hoop that fits YOUR body and goals!
