The belt or "obi" traditionally wraps twice, but the TKD group is not really traditional. If it only goes once it is because you have a non traditional obi and just do it once.

You wont be able to tie a box knot as with a double wrap, but you can get close......but it looks funny.

I agree you should ask for a longer belt so that you can make it look proper. Also about the roomy top part I personally always like it a bit roomy gives you more ability to do things. However if you are swimming in it you may want to ask for a bit smaller uniform
