Why Wear Waist Beads?

Originating in Africa, traditional tie-on waist beads have been worn by women for centuries and for various reasons. Some people believe waist beads provide healing properties depending on the types of materials used such as crystals, stones and such. More prominent, present-day reasons to wear waist beads are to track weight loss/gain or to simply wear them as an adornment. While our waist beads are not from Africa and instead personally handmade by me, they are however inspired by the traditional origin of waist beads. Our waist beads promote self love and self care! Think of waist beads as permanent lingerie. They are a way to make you feel sexy, beautiful and full of love.

Waist beads take you on a journey of self love, self care and so much more. It has allowed me to connect with so many amazing women and build sisterhood. Each person in life is on a path and I believe that being kind to yourself throughout the good and the bad makes it all the more easier. Adorn yourself with these adornments and say a positive affirmation for yourself!
