On right: Juniors 14" hanger w/ clips in natural c/o (also in walnut, also without clips, also in 15.5" petite)
Over the past year, I’ve been trying to focus more time and funds on taking care of items in my wardrobe. Forking over $ for professional alterations and cleaning is not fun, but hopefully will pay off in the long run. During this time, two aspects that I was guilty of neglecting were proper garment hanging and storage. I had a closet full of standard adult hangers, and cringed a little each time I stretched the shoulders of my clothes onto them. I had tried kids hangers before, but they were too narrow and resulted in the opposite problem – sagging and bumps in areas between the shoulder lines.
Kelly’s awesome post on narrow-shouldered hangers was revolutionary for me, however I decided to put off a hanger overhaul until we moved out of our current place. Unfortunately, it took a recent mini-panic over a permanently stretched-out Theory blazer for me to take quicker action.
I met the owner of Only Hangers thanks to Kelly, and he kindly sent over some products to try. Their website offers hangers in childrens (12" across and under), juniors (14”), petite (15.5” wooden, 15" plastic shaper), regular (17" - 18"), and oversized (19" - 20") widths, plus more. The search box in the upper-left corner can be helpful for navigating such a large selection.
