Q: How do I know what size waistbead I need?

A: Waistbeads should be tied right above the widest part of your stomach if you are looking to use them for weight management. People who are new to waistbeads are urged not to tie them in an area that can get easily hooked on pants or clothing until you are used to wearing them to decrease the risk of snagging your beads.

Q: How do waistbeads help with weight loss/tracking weight?

A: Waistbeads have historically been used for weight management by helping women track waist width by how tight beads are or how high they rise up on the waist. If you tie your beads low, and they start rising, this is a clear indication that you are gaining weight in your midsection area.

Q: My waist is more voluptuous than the 40" strands offered on the site, what should I do?

A: If you require additional length on your beads, this is no problem at all. Simply note the length that you require in your order and it will be fulfilled for you with love at no additional cost to you :)

Q: Are all strands made with crystals?

A: All strands are made with love, but not all are made with crystals. Other materials include gold-filled beads, sterling silver, wooden, glass, etc. Be sure to check the product descriptions to ensure that you are purchasing the right product for you.

Q: How long will it take for me to get my package?

A: All orders will be made and shipped within 7 days or less unless otherwise stated.

Q: How do I tie on my beads?
