Hanger Buying Guide
|Chrome with Foam Shirt / Trouser Hangers|
If your slippery silks and satin tops keep making a break for it, invest in hangers to help them stay put. Padded hangers, velvet hangers, and non-slip hangers are excellent for fabrics that tend to slide. They keep spaghetti straps from tangling and open necklines from falling to the closet floor.
How you hang your pants depends on how you wear them. Pants hangers offer variety. Casual jeans can be folded in half and hung over padded bar hangers. Dress pants can't afford to have a crease out of place. Clip or clamp pants hangers let you crease dress pants neatly to preserve pressing and hang full-length/lengthwise.
All Dressed Up
Long, heavy dresses, call for sturdy padded hangers. If you're mainly hanging lightweight, silky garments, satin and velvet hangers contribute to a luxurious feel. Your skirts don't need to be all strung up. Skirt hangers with a single clamp or rubber-coated clips will help you avoid nasty creases and wrinkles in the waistbands of your skirts.
Suits, Not Separates
There's no need to separate your suits. Whether you're wearing the pants in your relationship or going girly with a skirt suit, suit hangers are a great way to keep your suits coupled up. Suit hangers are often curved to give the garment a little breathing room. Sturdy wooden hangers are an excellent choice for hanging suits because they give support to help the shoulders keep their shape.
