I am still curious the authenticity of the merchandise considering it was delivered so swiftly but, I am very pleased w/ my waist beads. I only wish that there was a how to video/ tutorial on how to put the beads on. I eventually went to another sellers page to figure it out and I lost a lot of beads in the process. Very frustrating to say the least. I also, wish the waist beads came with clasp. I have a holiday party to attend and I’m afraid my beads esp the glow in the dark beads since they’re bigger will show thru my satin dress. This is just from my experience. All in all I’m happy with my beads once I put them on. The merchandise was delivered expeditiously and I got exactly what I expected.
