Waist beads have been worn for generations by Ghanaians to accentuate and mold to a woman's physique. You will feel ultra feminine. Waist beads are designed to be worn on your waist, on your hip or on your panty line. They are comfortable enough to be worn for long periods of time, even permanently; you might even forget that you’re wearing them! Some women wear their waist beads over their clothing, or with a crop top or swimsuit, while others choose to wear them under. If you choose to wear your waist beads under your clothing, do not worry as they are created to withstand the friction created by your clothing and still remain comfortable.
