How to measure your waist for waist beads
The measurement depends on where you would like to tie it, i.e. either around the hip or around the waist. Far as African culture, the hand-made waist bands are normally tied above the hips and below the naval. Below are the step to take the measurement:
- Take a measurement tape and start measuring on the area or part of your waist where you intend to wear or let it lay on.
- Remember to measure against the bare skin which means that every layer of the clothing is removed.
- For the measurement, wrap the measurement tape towards the naval and snugly fit it without tightening or digging into any part of the skin.
- Must give a read to your measurement tape via looking over at the area of the measurement tape that begins to meet the other end of the measurement tape.
**Ensure that you do not hold too hard or suck in since it may reflect in wrong measurement.
