How to Measure for JouJou WaistBeads

JouJou WaistBeads is pleased to provide you with waist beads measuring tips for your WaistBeads (aka waist beads or belly beads).

Did you know that women wear their beads up and down their torso? Under the boobs, ribs, belly, hips, etc. Wherever we place them, we want to make sure we get the perfect fit.

Use a fabric measuring tape, or download and print your own printable paper tape measure.  Do not use manufacturer clothing sizes as a gauge for your waist size.

  • Measure yourself on bare skin. Do not wrap your tape or string over your clothing (unless you plan on wearing them over your clothing).
  • Wrap snugly. But, not too tight.
  • Don’t suck in your stomach. Your size is your size. And that is perfect, Mama! You want your beads to fit, and you want them to last.
  • Typically, you should measure right below your belly button. If you have a belly, measure underneath it. Measure lower or higher, you should measure to accommodate that preference.
  • If you will be wearing your waist beads to help you lose or gain weight, measure on your belly. As you lose weight, they will fall. As you gain weight, they will roll-up.
