Waist beads, also known as belly beads for women, have traditionally been worn by African women since the 15th century to serve many purposes. In Africa, a bead is rarely a simple ornament; beads are worn visibly as a sign of status or hidden as an invisible yet perceptible signal to a husband or lover of sensuality. Today, waist beads are worn by women of every culture for healing purposes, decorative adornment, feminine empowerment, chastity collar, confidence building, sensuality, weight-loss tracking, and many more reasons.
Our waist beads are approximately 32-33″ inches long. It is recommended to order 2 or more strands of beads and add them together to the desired circumference. Waist bead adjustment video is available on the home page. Refer to the tutorial for visual instructions on how to put on your waist beads. https://youtu.be/-eR5g4QGXq8
Some queens like to adorn their upper midsection and wear their belly beads above the belly button, while others prefer to position their beads just above their hips below the navel. Each waist bead can also double as a beautiful necklace or anklet. Feel free to own your look as you please and occasionally switch the style up!

TYING: This is the traditional way to wear your beads. They are great for weight loss monitoring, waist training, promise to self or lover, self awareness, or a reminder of celibacy (do this by placing the beads around your womb until lover is found, then when you are ready to give your womb away lover cuts off celibacy beads and puts promise beads on). Once tied on, you can’t remove them unless you cut them off. You can customize the order, you can add different stones.
