Use plastic hangers and look for the biggest ones you can find. Sweaters are too heavy to hang, so they will get get bumps.
Hi Connie. I'm Cindy. Padded hangers will solve this problem. They will not leave marks on your clothing. However, they are expensive. They sell between $10 and $20 for half a dozen hangers. I found a DIY on how to make them. Take a look at: Padded Coat Hanger, a simple tutorial by Debbie Shore on You Tube. I hope you find this info helpful. Good luck Connie and Happy Holidays.
Hi Connie! This is a great question and one we all have had problems with. I will tell you what I have found as the best solution. I am fortunate to be around little ladies who love to knit hangers with yarn. They simply take hangers and knit them and make them soft and well padded. That is what I put my sweaters on. Until you can find them, I have taken bubble wrap or material similar to that and cut them into strips and place a hold for them to go over the hook in the hanger....make them soft enough to not leave marks on your sweater. I have in the past just taken tissue paper or news paper and put them wadded up inside the small baggies and just placed on the hanger with my sweater over them. I found a lady on Etsy who I asked to do some hangers for me, and that works wonderfully. The one in particular I really like! I just order a few at a time & see how I like them, and every time I order more. Hope this helps you with your sweater problem.
Here are hangers done from Etsy that I have purchased many times in the past.
Connie..Try wrapping bubble wrap on ends of hangers or foam rubber.
Invest in good hangers. For heavy sweaters I hang on pants hangers. Feed the body of the sweater up to the sleeves. No shoulder bumps ever again! If you want a photo, let me know. I am partial to Joy Mangano hangers sold on HSN, Bed Bath & Beyond or Target. She already did her super jumbo end of the year deal, so If you want them, there will be a terrific sale after the first of the year. I converted all my closets over time by color.
I slip on pieces of pool noodles on the hangers. Works on clothes I sell on Ebay
I started using the velvet hangers and it seems to help!
You shouldn't hang sweaters, Connie. It really will ruin them. They will become stretched out in length and the shoulders will become distorted. If you don't have the drawer space, put them in inexpensive cardboard storage boxes under your bed.
