African Waist Beads for Weight Management

by Tadalu . 31 Oct 2020 0 Comments

Waist Beads for Weight Control & Positive Body Image      

Whether it’s weight gain or loss – a change in body weight is often sudden. It doesn’t happen overnight. Instead, these changes are often so subtle that they go unnoticed for a long time. Luckily, a fun and easy way to monitor your weight is to wear waist beads.

Here are the following benefits of waist beads:

1.     Create Weight Awareness

With waist beads adorning your waist, you can forget about stepping on the scale. Since waist beads don't stretch, you will feel them tightening around the waist if you gain any weight in the abdomen area. On the other hand, if you lose weight, the beads will slide down your waist and fall further down to the hips. Either way, wearing waist beads is a surefire way to stay aware of even the slightest change in weight at all times. 

2.     Promote Positive Body Image 

The best part about waist beads is that unlike the numbers on the scale, they ensure body positivity. Women of all shapes and sizes can wear them to keep a check on their waistline and adorn their bodies with exotic fashion accessories. Plus, they are a powerful means of self-expression, which will help you feel bold and unique.   

3.     Help Correct Posture   

While waist beads fit comfortably around the waist, they feel different depending on how you are sitting and breathing. As a result, wearing waist beads can make you aware of your stomach and posture. It will act as a reminder to sit up straight, relax your back, and breathe properly. Over time, you will notice a stark difference in your posture, which, in turn, will help boost your confidence. 

How to Choose the Right Waist Beads 

Now that you know how waist beads help with weight management and creating a positive body image, let’s take a look at how to find the perfect beads for yourself. 

Step 1 – Measure the Size 

Want to pick the perfect African beads for your waist? Then the first thing you need to do is figure out the right size. This is especially true if you are buying non-stretchable waist beads. It is recommended to use a measuring tape to take waist measurements before getting waist beads. On the other hand, if you want to wear your waist beads without worrying about size, then opt for adjustable waist beads.     

Step 2 – Choose the Color, Stones, & Charms 

In African cultures, the meaning of waist beads can vary depending on the colors and stones used to prepare them. However, it must be mentioned that today, many waist beads are made using synthetic materials.

Here are some common stones and colors that are used to make waist beads and what they signify:


  • Blue: Signifies insight, healing, and truth
  • Red: Promotes passion and bravery
  • White: Symbolizes truth and purity  
  • Yellow: Helps gain clarity and awareness

Stones & Charms

  • Quartz: To gain clarity 
  • Hamsa: For protection against bad luck and evil 
  • Lapis Lazuli: Symbolizes peace, truth 
  • Rose Quartz: For healing and love

The Bottom Line

Women wear African waist beads for different reasons. They offer an individualized style and are available in different colors, shapes, and sizes. Plus, you can wear a single strand or try as many as you want. Ultimately, the choice of style and design boils down to your personal preferences.
