These days, a lot of controversies have arisen in the minds of many as well as in conversations as to whether or not to have waist beads on. Some of these come from a place of religious takes, some from what it is perceived to connotate in the society we live in. Whatever the case may be, waist beads are still very much fancied by many and as such, is worn for that reason.
