How annoying is it to open your wardrobe each morning, to be greeted by an array of clothes that you can’t really see because either they are stuffed in amongst other clothes, or are at a different height to the rest so hidden from view.
And then, when you start to move things around, you have to be so careful not to disturb items that will fall from the hanger at the slightest thing.
It’s a minefield!
It makes choosing an outfit not only more time consuming, but also less of a pleasure.
I’ve been looking for a product that helps with this problem for a while, and about a year ago I came across the velvet style hangers which I have to say are simply astounding – and I personally don’t use anything else now.
I don’t recommend things lightly, and only when I’ve tried them personally, but these are not only tried and tested by me but by so many of my friends, family and clients that I feel it would be rude not to introduce them to you!
The Positives Of Velvet Hangers
#1 – The hangers are slimline, and you will not believe how many more items you can fit into your wardrobe now – I was amazed!
It helps you get a bit of breathing space back into everything! (I advise them for this purpose rather than to enable you to fit even more clothes in!).
Whenever I have used them I always get between 25 and 50% more space in the wardrobe – amazing!
#2 – They’re flock velvet coated, which means that not even silk will shift once put on them, This makes them excellent for holding strappy dresses, silk blouses etc…
#3 – They are inexpensive (around £20 for 50 so 40p each!, but sometimes on sale too) – especially in todays financial climate, it is important to know that you are getting value for money, but sometimes items can be priced for so little you almost wonder what’s wrong with them (don’t you just love our thought process!).
You can purchase great coat hangers from other shops, but some can be as much as £5 each – and when you need to get lots then this adds up too quickly.
50 coat hangers is perfect for a decent sized wardrobe for starters, and you can always get more if required at this price!
#4 – They look great!
It’s so lovely when you’re getting organised to feel that real sense of satisfaction, and nothing beats opening your wardrobe everyday and being greeted with an orderly line up of your clothes, ready for you to pick out!
The black colouring makes clothes stand out more too.
The Negatives Of Using Velvet Coat Hangers
#1 – One bad thing is that I’ve had 2-3 break on me.
Usually when I haven’t aligned them in my wardrobe and they have been bent and snap on the door – so you could say it’s more down to me than them – but it’s still a pain.
I think that the positives completely outweigh the negatives, and even if you had a few break over time, they are so well priced in the first place that this won’t feel like a sting too much.
#2 – I do still use other types of hangers for specific things.
For example, wooden hangers for jackets as they are bulkier, and also clip hangers for skirts.
