Waist beads come in a variety of different colors and designs. Some of the more intricate designs that include charms and specialty beads may require special attention, wear, or care. Here are a few frequently asked questions, answers, and tips on how to wear and care for your waist beads.
Question #1: Are waist beads meant to be worn permanently? Most waistbeadsbyayo™, are made for permanent wear, and are encouraged to be worn daily. Waist beads can be worn permanently, whether or not they are string-tied or made with a clasp. the body, or made with a clasp for easy removal. Online orders are made with beading wire unless a specific request to make them with nylon string is requested.
Question #2: How do I measure my waist? Everybody’s body is not the same, so how waist beads lay on each body can differ. Here’s a tip on how to measure your waist for the best fit: Use a string or thin rope to measure your waist under your navel and allow room for the string to rest comfortably against your skin and above your hips or center curve lines without falling down past your backside. If you have a high back line, your beads are likely to settle above the dip in your back (sacral curvature). In this case, measure from the lowest area in the dip of your back and curve your string under your navel. You can tie your string and do a pull test to make sure your beads will not fall off. Once you are sure about your desired fit, remove string and measure it with a ruler or tape measure.
Question #3: How do I wear my waist beads? Waist beads are meant to be worn low to the waist line, below the navel, and under the belly and clothing. You can perform regular daily activity with most waist beads on, including bathing, swimming, and exercising. Question #4: Will people be able to see my beads through my clothing? Because waist beads are worn low to the waistline, they can easily camouflage in your natural crease lines created when you wear dresses, skirts, pants, or long shirts. For a smoother look when wearing fitted clothing clients wear spanks or body shapers. When doing so, shapers should be placed over your bead, and your beads should be placed in your natural waist line grooves under your belly.
Question #5: Will my beads break? Your waist beads have the potential to lasts for several years+, even with daily wear, if cared for properly. Because waist beads are worn low to the hips, you are likely to tug at them when removing your garments daily, or engaging in interactive/body contact sports or activities*. Nylon strung waist beads and beads made with beading wire can both last for years. They can break prematurely if exposed to products with chemical properties that can break down or alter these materials. If you are planning for a spa day, remove your beads before sinking into that mud bath. Nothing muddy is fun to clean. Often, women forget their beads are on their body as they as they become adjusted to weight of the beads. Thus, you must be mindful of your beads, especially when going to the bathroom – feel for your beads first before you pull down to protect from sudden breakage.

Question #7: Can I remove my waist beads if they do not have a clasp? 90% of women have a natural shape that allows them the ability to remove beads over their head like a shirt. As you move the beads up your torsel, you may gain enough inches in space to roll over your bosom, pass carefully through your arms (0ne by one), and lastly over your head. If your bosom area or shoulders are much wider than your hips, you may not be able to remove them. The same challenge may occur with women who have fibroids.
