I don’t know very much about the traditions of waist beads. I’m just so proud to be of African heritage because I get to wear them without having to know anything about them and people won’t give me shit about cultural appropriation 🙄.
They’re really popular these days…nostalgic for me. I used to make these back in hs with my friend, Kay who is from Africa. Didn’t know much about them then either.When I search the interwebs, I see things about weight loss and waist training and such. Although I did find this one video to be helpful in learning about them—–> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp1bj4EHOl8
All I know is that they make me feel incredibly sexy and that is enough for me. 😌
