Akwaaba! Welcome! Thank you for visiting our home on the web.
Waists by Wednesday is dedicated to providing women of all shapes and sizes an opportunity to adorn themselves with waist beads and other African inspired accessories that help women express their strength, beauty, and self-love.
Waist beads have been worn for centuries by women in West Africa. They have many meanings depending on the culture. They can be worn as a “coming of age” rite for young girls, as a means of intimacy, to “shape” the waist, as a weight management tool, or simply as a beautiful accessory. Some cultures will add perfume to the beads to seduce their mate. Often times, women will choose colors and designs that hold a special meaning for them.
All products are handmade with care and attention to detail. With proper care your WbW waist beads and accessories will last for years. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction and will do what we can to ensure you’re happy with both your purchase and our service.
