Hangers are a convenient way to store clothes, but they are not suitable for all things

Beautifully hung on hangers in a well-lit dressing room is the perfect Instagram picture that almost everyone dreams of. However, in reality, not all things are suitable for storage on such hangers.

OBOZREVATEL analyzed, what types of things are better to store on the shelves. On hangers they can lose their shape or get damaged.


Anything with a knitted fabric structure - be it thin T-shirts or knitted sweaters - should not be stored on weight. Such fabric will quickly stretch and warp.

Heavy items

Winter clothes and bulky items that weigh a lot also lose their shape from hanging. They are best stored in vacuum bags. This way, moths will not get to items with natural filling. They will also take up less space in such packaging.


Sports and outdoor clothing is designed to hold its shape well and not interfere with movement. On hangers they will stretch and sag, and technological fibers will lose their properties over time. That's why thermal underwear, workout tops and shorts, leggings, yoga pants and similar items should be stacked on shelves.


In the store, these items look very nice on hangers. But it is important to realize that they are in this state before they are worn and take the shape of the body. And it lasts for quite a short time. If you store panties, bras and tops in this way, they will deform quickly. It is better to have a special drawer for them. You can also put a scented sachet in it, so that things are not only well stored, but also enjoy a pleasant aroma.

Generously decorated clothes

Items with active decorations such as beads, sequins or embroidery should be stored folded in canvas covers. This will provide additional protection for stitched or glued items.
