best excersise for getting a tiny waist?

my current measurements are 36C/B (lol shrinking) - 29-40 (5'8)

I'd love to be "36B - 26 - 38"

Meaning I want to shrink my waist, but retain myself at being very curvy (my hips aren't going down too much anyhow...I do have large wide hip bones). Only issue is, I don't want to keep losing weight until my waist goes down there, I'd rather some of it be fat loss and a lot of it be a smaller, toner tummy.

Any ideas?

Hula hooping with a weighted hoop (I started a thread about's still on the first page somewhere). Since I started doing it, I got huge curve from my waist to my hips. This other girl went from a 24" waist to a 22". So I think it's at least worth a try for you.
^ that site sells weighted hoops but I'd recommend looking on ebay for the ones that have bumpy projections along the inside. It'll hurt for the first two weeks and you'll get huge bruises but they go away after a while.

this may sound like a silly question, but did you notice any difference in your dancing ability? like club dancing and such? i'd imagine that all that hip movement would come in handy lol

Actually, yeah! I can almost dance reggaeton now because my stomach and hips move so smoothly, especially right after a hula hooping session. And my husband is telling me that I have some "new moves" lately - apparently I'm gyrating more in the sack. ;) haha hope that wasn't too much info...

is there a difference between the bumpy projections along the inside and the smooth ones along the inside? what is the difference? is there any weight you recommend for the hoop?

Thanks!! :D

Hi 11:45,

The bumpy projections contain magnets that are supposed to stimulate acupuncture points for fat loss in the area and also strengthens the intestines. I got that information from the ebay listing that I bought mine from:

And according to, an individual weighing 100-200 pounds can use a 4-pound hoop and it looks like the 5-pound hoop is ok to use for individuals who are at least 120 pounds.
