Waist beads are a traditional African accessory that consist of small beads on a string or wire worn around the waist. They are a symbol of femininity, fertility, sensuality, and spiritual well-being. Many women around the world use waist beads in intimate settings to enhance their sensuality. Waist beads can help a person become more aware of their stomach and posture; commonly used to gauge changes in weight. Many also wear waist beads as just accessories.
How to measure your waist
Please do not use your clothing sizes as your waist size for the waist beads. Use measuring tape for a more precise size, measure your bare skin where you would like the beads to fall (please not too tight nor too loose). Measure a little lower if you would like your beads to fall below your belly botton.
If you’ve never worn waist beads before, measure right below your belly button.
