6. Which finish should I take?

Let's Brace It! offers three different finishes of waistbeads. Each finish has its pros and cons, based on your interpretations of their benefits and how theu work. 

Tie-On- this is the permanent finish and the most traditional and most common of the three. The chosen type if the aim is to waist track, feel closely attached to African women of old and if working out is a part of your life. Once tied in place, you cannot remove this finish, neither can you cut to adjust.

Elastic- very sturdy- due to the high quality string that is sourced by Let's Brace It!, yet can give a small amounts of stretch. This finish can facilitate the waistbeads be put on and taken off whenever they are not needed. Many find this finish to be very comfortable as though it can be used to monitor weight journey, if there is much gain, the small stretch may produce with room for the extra pounds before getting to a point of discomfort.

 

Clasp- these cannot be worn forever-  the clasp option is lobster clasp which is usually strung with wire or cotton string. This is a great finish if you would like to wear huge beads, metal beads and charms, and other things on the waistbeads that would prevent or get in the way of everyday living, thus this finish is designed to be removed when needs be, without damaging the waistbeads.
