I totally remember this. And it for sure dates back at least 20 years. Red was anorexia. Blue was bulimia. I think EDNOS was purple? Because purple is a mix of red and blue? It was all pretty silly, but this was during a time when people weren’t constantly connected to the internet, so the bracelets made you feel like you were part of something even when you couldn’t be online.

i have worn a red anklet for pretty much the past 8 months. it still reminds me of my roots, per say, and even though it isnt at the forefront of my mind i wonder if that's why i've never taken it off. i've worn red bracelets on and off for years as a sign of my ed.

There were other bracelets too. Sure blue was for Bulimia and black for self harm. Ednos had one but I can’t remember it’s colour

Hahaha how about green for schizophrenia and yellow for depression?

I dont think they should come back as I feel the "pro ana" community GENERALLY has evolved and isnt like it was in many ways. The bracelet to me symbolises what it was and many people who are older now are facing consequences health wise of being sucked into the old pro ana scene as a teenager and a very chronic ed
 
BUT
 
I think bracelets for people in recovery of an ed would be cool, and an interesting conversation starter too in real life as I suspect those in recovery can sometimes feel lonely especially without supportive family which not everyone has the privilege of

Maybe alternating white and red beaded bracelets?

I've had a few through the years... 

 

2010ish I had a red embroidery thread thing with coins/discs on it. That one disintegrated. 

 

2013ish I had an anklet w a dragonfly charm that fell off and got lost somewhere after a year or two.

 

Last year I had a nice ish red embroidery one with an anchor til it too disintegrated. 

 

I want to make another one LMAO

You can still get them on places like Etsy! Just search for “red dragonfly bracelet” and lots will pop up.
I bought mine a few years ago, and wear it pretty much everyday even though the trend is long dead.

The only thing funnier than people who are religious about those bracelets are people who are pressed about others wearing them. It’s just jewellery, geez.
