Without those awful shoulder bumps!
While I was moving the other month, I began to unearth drawers full of cardigans I had not worn in months. Poor little neglected sweaters! They had somehow reached the bottom of the drawer, completely covered by everything else I had stuffed in there, and outta sight, outta mind.
I know you’re not supposed to hang your sweaters, because they get those awful hangar indentations in the shoulder, but there had to be a better way to store them so they don’t get lost in a drawer again. I like to see my clothes all laid out in front of me, and a drawer just wasn’t doing it for me anymore.
So, like every person in need of closet furnishings…I went to Bed Bath & Beyond!
And look what I found…
I just so happen to use flocked slimline hangers, and these shoulder shapers slide onto slimline hangers, to give it a width suitable enough for hanging sweaters. I bought a few packs to give them a shot and hung up some of my more delicate sweaters as a test.
The results…no hanger indentations!
I’ve been using them for about a month now and am so happy I found these. My sweaters are hanging happily in my closet, within eyesight so I can pull which ever one I want easily. Even my most delicate wide weave cashmere blend cardigan is holding up beautifully.The downside: These things are wide! Almost defeats the purpose of getting “slim” hangers. Luckily, I have a spacious closet at the moment, so I’m able to dedicate a lot of space for my sweaters. But if you’re pressed for space, it might be difficult hanging many sweaters in a tiny closet with these.
I found these at Bed Bath & Beyond on sale, because apparently they are discontinuing this product in stores. If you can find these in stores, I only paid $2.99 a pack (enough for 2 hangers). I went back and bought a bunch, but may end up buying a bunch more now that I see they’re being discontinued.
Luckily, I’ve found them on Amazon:
For slimline hangers: 6 shapers (3 hangers) for $8.95 at Amazon
