All you need to know about waist chains
Choosing the right waist chain
After cutting, wrap a tape measure or string around this part of your body to measure the length. If you are using a chain, mark it where the two ends meet and then measure this length with a ruler. Try not to tighten the string or tape too tightly around your belly. The result will naturally be a little tighter.
Some removable waist beads are adjustable or come with extensions.
Origins of the waist chain
The waist chain is a traditional African accessory made of small glass beads on a string or thread worn around the hips. It is also called waist beads, belly beads or belly bead chains. The waist chain is a popular accessory among women all over the world.
Some waist beads were permanent. This means that the chain does not stretch and there is no clasp to thread or remove the beads. These jewels are designed to stay on the body until they break or you decide to cut them off permanently.
Meaning of the belly chains
Waist chains are used to assess weight changes. Rather than standing on a scale, people can use waist chains to keep track of any weight gain or loss in the abdomen.
In parts of the world where waist chains are a cultural tradition, beads are often associated with femininity, maturity and growth.
Intimacy and fertility
Many women around the world use the waist chain in intimate environments to enhance their sensuality. It is also closely related to fertility.
Belly chains are also available for pregnant women. They are thought to protect the mother and the growing baby.
This accessory has African origins. Waist chains are a popular way for black women in the Diaspora to connect with their ancestors and celebrate their heritage and cultural practices.
Waist chains can help a person become more aware of their stomach and posture. They can remind you to sit up straight, engage your stomach muscles, relax your back and breathe properly.
