hi, I have wooden hangers in my wardrobe, with the grooves for straps but sometimes I have something with a side-ish neck and soft frabic and it slips off the hanger.

the clothes shops sometimes have some rubber on their hangers to keep things on. I don;t knwo if it's possble to buy something like that :shrugs: or is there a DIY tip I could try?

any suggestions welcome :flowers:

Container Store and Restoration Hardware used to sell a nifty little package of black grippy stuff you just wrap on the ends of your hangers. Looks pretty good like the hangers came that way. I use it, it's great:biggrin:

I get the velvet hangers from Bed Bath & Beyond and they work great. I just got the value pack and got and additional 20% off with my coupon from the mail. :tup:
Set of 50 for $39.99 and 20% off.

I use huggable hangers. I can put anything on those suckers and it will stay on. However I think any velvet hanger will work the same.

You could always wrap a rubber band around the "arms" of the hanger. That should provide some traction to prevent your garment from slipping.

I looked up huggable hangers and they are ridiculously expensive in the UK. I'll try the elastic band thing, it sounds like it should work.

Try these.
"Grippy Hangers" from www.containerstore.com



I use the hangers with the clips at the bottom to hold up dresses and such..they work really well..and sometimes you can clip 3-4 dresses onto one hanger to save space.

Do the Mangano Huggable Hangers have swiveling hooks on them? I noticed that the Wal-Mart knockoffs do not swivel.
