While we strive for 100% satisfaction from all our customers, Waists by Wednesday cannot be held responsible for strands that are not long enough to fit your waist. Customers are responsible for knowing their own waist size and making sure the size of the listing will fit them PRIOR to ordering. All items will list their approximate length. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT EVERY LISTING HAS A DIFFERENT STANDARD LENGTH.
Please allow up to 48 hours for a response to custom order requests and emails.
Please also allow 3-5 business days for processing and 2-5 additional days for shipping unless expedited shipping has been selected.
Custom orders may be subject to a 2-4 week processing time. Because the majority of our beads are imported from Ghana, there is a possibility that we may not have your desired color/type on hand in order to make certain custom orders right away. In this case, your custom request may be delayed.
Waist Bead Design
Most of our waist bead pieces will not have a clasp attached. We strive to keep our product authentic and traditionally waist beads are tied on for long-term wear. This also ensures that no matter what piece catches your eye, you can customize them all to fit your size.
Can I take my Waist Beads off once tied?
Absolutely. Getting them back on depends on how loosely or tight you decide to tie them. Traditionally waist beads are worn along the pantie line and not tight around the waist. This allows the beads to be pulled up and off similar to a t-shirt. If you prefer to wear them tight around the waist you may want to tie them in a bow rather than a knot should you plan on taking them off.
I need a longer size for my waist beads:
No problem! Send a message to us and we’ll make whatever length you need and create a custom listing just for you. Custom orders vary in price and may take up to 2 weeks to process.
