Long-Lasting Shine

Nice shine and 45" long. The band isn't elastic like some cheaper products which means the more weight I gained, the tighter they become. Definitely help

These waist beads are so beautiful and fit wonderfully. Instructions for measuring are very easy so ordering is a breeze. I ordered the clasped beads and am extremely pleased with the quality. They seem durable and dry well!

I’m back for more!

I currently have 3 sets of these waist beads and am buying another set. They’re both comfortable and pleasing to the eye. I only wear 2-3 at a time but you can certainly wear more. They don’t cut into the skin or get caught on my clothes. In fact, I forget I have them on most of the time. Mine do help me monitor my weight (I know when I’m expanding, in other words) although that’s not necessarily the intent behind them. I’ve had my current sets (of 2) since February and shower, sleep, workout, etc. with them on…they’re very durable. The seller is very responsive to questions and gets the product shipped quickly. I highly recommend!
