How to Wear
To secure your waist beads, tie them around your waist, remove excess beads and knot them twice.
If you are planning to lose weight, tie them higher on your waist than you desire them to be (as you lose weight the beads will lower). In reverse, if you wish to gain weight, tie them lower than you desire them to be (as you gain weight the beads will rise).
*Beads can be worn while swimming, bathing etc.*
