CHOOSING THE RIGHT CLOTHING HANGER

By: Marie Torgueman



Hangers are the foundation of a well-organized closet. Choosing the right hanger is like choosing the right clothing. It has to fit well and look nice. Keeping all the hangers the same is also important for saving space and maintaining a neat and organized look. There are many unique finishes, shapes and sizes available. There are even hangers made of special textures to ensure that clothing gets hung with the best care possible. Here are some tips to help you choose the right hanger:

Thick or Thin?Evaluate your closet space and decide if your closet can accommodate all of your clothing on a thick hanger. Otherwise, choose a thin hanger to save space.

One Size Does Not Fit AllThe wrong size hanger can stretch, pucker and ruin your clothing. If a child or adult needs a smaller
or larger size, there are junior and extra-large hangers available
for a better fit.

No Wrinkles Hanging your clothing instead of folding it
prevents wrinkling. Cushioned pant bars eliminate creases
and marks at the folds.

No SlippingHangers with shoulder notches keep dress straps
in place. Rubber or felt grips keep garments from slipping off.

A Better ShapeHangers are available in many curves and contours to preserve and support the shape of the garment. Some hangers are shaped for men’s clothing and some are shaped for women’s clothing, so make sure the hanger’s shape aligns with the style of the outfit.

DurabilityIf a hanger is too flimsy, it won’t hold up your garments well. If a garment is too heavy for the hanger, it can cause it to sag and stretch.

No More Wire Hangers!Wire dry cleaning hangers are not
only bad looking in a closet but can also rust and leave stains
on your clothing.
