Ashley Jones

Does anyone have experience making their waist beads with cotton strings? I exercise a lot and typically break the elastic waist beads and the waist beads with little cotton string. I’m open to any tips or suggestions.


Is it okay for white women to wear these? I found some on etsy and I don't plan on showing them off or anything ❤️ thank you

p willz

I wish i found this before I ordered some online. Oh well now I’m gonna make more lol

Marcie White

Why would we use elastic if we are using them to lose weight? Won't the elastic just stretch?

Is it rude for a white person to make them, I just would love to try it and I really appreciate it if I could, so I’m just asking for permission?

Ramona Kearns

With it being made with elastics would it be hard to track weight bc ones I has made with elastic . The elastic started stretching out and getting loose

Kwanzaa Grant

If its elastic it will stretch...??‍♀️ So you should use fish wire or rope. Elastic will stretch with your gut and when you over eat it won't tighten.

Kiarra Harris

Do you shower in them ? The ones I currently have are permanent on some type of string. It’s been a year and the string hasn’t failed me yet. I like the elastic ones though but I’d want to keep them on permanently too, specifically when showering

Hey What kind of thread do you use to bead?


I used the mercerized cotton to make waistbeads for my nieces and I and everyone’s strands ended up stretching about 1/3 of an inch. I tied them on without any gaps and measures twice but still the thread seemed to stretch a little bit. Is there a better thread or have you used wire maybe?

thank you for the video, when you finished did you tie them around your waist or did you tie it and step into it lol. sorry for asking such a question.

Margo Green

Where do you get your beads?

Natasha Croff

And what type of beads are you using?


I loved your video! New subscriber... If I were making them for someone how many extra inches should I add to their waist size to allow them to step in to them once completed?

Priscilla Limon

Yes, recycling our packing bubble wrap, completely catches the beads from falling/rolling away from us.

Piercing Fan

Did you used to have your navel pierced? Threading those through a belly button ring would hold them up nicely!

Natasha Croff

What size beads are you using?

CreAna Grimes

Where did you get your threader ?


Thanks for the video! And yeah, everytime I visit Michael's, I want to buy so much!

The Bosley Affair

I use small bowls and I set everything on a tray to catch strays. Otherwise there will be more on the floor than on the cord.


Tfs. I'm having the same issue with sizing: just searched Stretch Magic and found out they recommend gently pre-stretching their stretchy jewelry cord.
