Adorn Your Belly

Celebrate your femininity and power with belly/waist beads. Bump.Baby.Bliss. is now offering waist beads for you!

Why I Chose Waist Beads?

I personally became interested in waist beads after having my second son. I felt like my body was just not as “sexy” as it once was. I can’t quite describe what I didn’t like but I just didn’t feel sexy. I randomly came across waist beads and then researched some history behind them and was amazed about what I learned and the many reasons and meanings women wore them. I later went shopping for some and my experience was gratifying. I really enjoyed getting fitted for my beads, picking out which ones resonated with me by the colors, style, vibe, etc. Once I got home, I just stared at myself in the mirror. I LOVED my belly! The way I felted and looked was amazing. It’s crazy all I needed was a little jewelry. I’m not sure if it’s because of what each strand meant to me, how beautiful they were, the way they laid across my belly or what. But my focus wasn’t on my stretch marks anymore. I started walking around nude, prancing around in just my undergarments, it was CLEAR that my confidence was boosted. I immediately thought WOW, if I felt that way about my body how can I make other women feel this way?! What about pregnant women? I know it can be a major adjustment when our bodies start to change when we are pregnant. I want women to adore their beautiful pregnant bodies. I want postpartum to not feel “unpretty” because of new scars or bloated-ness. I want women that haven’t had children to even feel the same way. We all have things about our bodies that we love; I just want to enhance that feeling.  Making waist beads give me a sense of peace and calmness. I love exploring my creativity and simplicity. Each strand is handcrafted with a personal touch and love. ~Courtney H.

I wanted to offer something for ALL women, especially pregnant women to embrace our bodies.  My waist beads are designed to beautify your waist and hips at all times. Waist beads liberate women by promoting healing, spirituality, personal power, balance, body shaping and more.

Pregnant ladies, understanding no pregnancy is the same and no postpartum body is the same; our bodies are always changing.  I want women to be able to look at their pregnant body with the sense of joy and confidence. I want women to be able to look at their postpartum body and feel beautiful; knowing that everything stems from our bodies, we create and house little ones.

Here are a few different reasons why women wear waist beads. What will be your reason?:


To wear in confidence and embrace your body especially during pregnancy. Some women adorn their waist and hips with beads simply as a fashion accessory. Women usually tie the beads higher around the midsection so that the beads show when they wear clothing that shows the section. Most women usually wear multiple strands and tie the beads to fall lower on the hips.

Weight Management

Monitor your weight-loss in general or post pregnancy. In African culture, waist beads are considered the original waist trainer because when worn around the waist they help to keep track of your weight loss efforts or maintain your current waist size. When you gain weight, waist beads will either roll up or pop. When you lose weight, they will fall lower. Although originated in Africa, Women across all ethnic backgrounds and faiths have enjoyed the divine benefits of wearing waist beads.

Womb Awareness

Womb Awareness is the conscious act of being aware of the sacred energy that you hold in your   sacred center. Whether you are trying to prepare your womb to be ready for childbirth or not, your womb is still the most sacred source of creation. Beautifying your waist and hips with beads help you to stay aware of your divine feminine. That awareness helps to bring forth the desires of your heart and soul.


Some women suffer from infertility, miscarriages, other womb complications. Waist beads can be worn for meditating over your body, healing and empowerment purposes. Your intention for wearing should be clear in your mind’s eye. Women who beautify themselves with waistbeads for intentional purposes are likely to stay focused on the path, thing, or feeling that they are intending.


To show off and embrace your body or new postpartum body. Waistbeads can be used to entice the likes of a lover and awaken the sexual passion inside of you. Women who adorn themselves with waistbeads for aphrodisiac purposes will sometimes wear multiple strands, and occasionally add scented oils to them.

Please read below on what inspired her business:

December! My favorite month of the year. It’s my birthday month and its Christmas. What could be better than that? My sweet girl was now 11 months and I was crazy about cutting out snowflakes and creating a winter fairy tale land for her first birthday in January.

This was the month that Sweetbabybeanie was born.
I woke up on December 3, 2015 and I thought, I’m 28. Then I thought about all the things I wanted to do before I was 28. I questioned if I had lost myself in motherhood. Who was I now? Were those goals I had really that important now that I was a mom? I didn’t get a masters degree to be at home all day!
For a few minutes I felt like I was drowning, I couldn’t breathe.
On the morning of my 28th birthday I had a panic attack.

I remember being angry. Angry at everyone who sat back and watched me disappear into motherhood. Why didn’t anyone try and save me, I was still the same person or was I? Had I embraced motherhood as a new identity and let go of self?

I had.

After gathering my thoughts I got dressed and bundled up my daughter and went to Michaels craft store. I bought yarn and decided I would make a beanie for my baby. I had a choice to make. Sink in motherhood or swim. On my 28th birthday I decided that this new hobby would be for me. It would be my projects separate from my daughter and husband. My new hooks and yarn was my beacon of hope, my compass on the road to rediscovering who I was.
