Bohemian Brown Waist Beads
The history of waist beads dates back to antiquity. Many believe that the history begins in ancient Egypt where they were called “girdles” and were worn by women as a status symbol. In West Africa, the tradition was made popular by the Yoruban tribe of Nigeria. They are worn as a celebration of womanhood, sexuality, femininity, fertility, healing, spirituality, body shaping, protection and wealth. It is believed that the practice of wearing multiple waist beads over time will help to keep the waist small and accentuate the hips.
Since traditional waist beads are strung on cotton cord (and without a clasp/hook) they can be a good tool to measure weight gain and loss. They will not stretch; they will either break or continue to roll up the waist when weight has been gained. Similarly, they will roll down or eventually become so loose they will fall off when weight has been lost.Waist beads can be word by women of all shapes and sizes. Celebrate your curves with the perfect strands for you.

There is no right or wrong way to wear waist beads. Decide where you want your beads to lay and measure there. Some begin their beads very high up the assist them in weight loss. Some prefer to honor them as a sensual aid and begin them at their natural waist. Where ever you decide, measure and enter in the box.
Wrap your beads around your waist in the position you want to wear them. For weight management, it's best to begin them very high, close to bra line, so you can enjoy them dropping as you lose. Once you decide on placement, remove any extra beads if necessary by carefully un-straining them. Tie 4-5 tight knots where the beads join. You add a drop of glue to the knot to help secure. Cut any additional string and you are ready to slay.
Waist beads can be worn at all times and are not intended to be removed until you are ready to release them and change to a new set. The beads may dull with body products or soap, and is normal. Gently clean them if you desire with soap and water. You can use a bit of natural oil to give them sheen.
If you would like them to be removeable, tie them loosely very low on your body in order to lift them off to remove. Your beads can endure almost any activity, but use caution when dressing and using the restroom to not catch the strands and break them.
