Depending on how you want to wear your waistbeads, you can measure yourself above your navel, just at your navel, or right above your hips. Use a tape measure and measure against your bare skin without sucking in your stomach. You shouldn’t hold the tape loose nor too snug.
Are waist beads supposed to be tight?
Make sure they are not too tight, so that they do not break when you bend or sit (or after you eat too much). I personally have worn the same set of waist beads for up to 5 years without taking them off.
What does it mean if your waist beads break?
Your waist bead is totally breakable either because you’re eating too or maybe while moving too fast, you don’t get to notice your beads attached to something and it rips it off your waist. This is totally normal. You just need to take note of what you were doing before it happened.
Are waist beads stretchy?
Waist beads don’t stretch. If you were to gain weight, the beads will sit higher on the waist or feel tight. Conversely, if you were to lose weight, the beads will feel loose and fall further down to the hips. Unlike the numbers on a scale, waist beads are more compatible with body positivity.

How do I stop my waist beads from pinching?
