How to Measure for Waist Beads


It greatly depends on where you want to tie them, around the hips or the waist. Usually, they are tied just below the naval and above the hips. 

Following steps should be taken into consideration to make the correct measurements:

  • Remove any layers of clothing that may be blocking your waist.
  • Stand up straight, hold the measuring tape right behind you, and bring it around your waist so that it overlaps at your navel. The tape should be parallel to the floor and fit snugly around your torso. Avoid digging it into your skin.
  • Have it checked by a friend or double check it yourself.

  • Don’t hold your breath or suck in since it would affect the measurement.
  • Don’t dig the tape into your skin.
