What are waist beads?

Waist beads have many religious and spiritual meanings created by our ancestors in Africa. Many countries in Africa have different specific purposes for wearing them and their cultural intentions. Commonly women wear them to manage weight loss/gain as well as bloating and menstruation tracking. Many women also choose to wear them as an empowering self-love accessory, especially for confidence when our bodies change over the years, especially our stomachs after we have children.
