Sizing and Care
Sizing: Using measuring tape, measure around your waist. You can place your waistbeads as high or as low as you want them along your torso area.
If you have bloating after eating or experience changes in the fullness of your stomach throughout the day, it's best to place waistbeads either above or below your stomach area.
If the waistbeads are too snug, this creates tension on the string and may cause your strand to break over time. You want your beads to fit comfortably.
Waistbeads are not waist trainers. Keep in mind that you bend, bloat, stretch, etc. throughout the day, you want to be comfortable.
Care: When going to the bathroom, slow down. Gently, pull your waistbeads up and pull your pants down. Rushing to pull your pants down is the way most strands pop, as they get caught in the waist of the pants and get tugged on.
