Have you ever put on an outfit, only to look in the mirror and find ugly dimples on each of your shoulders? The solution to this pesky problem is simply a matter of using the appropriate hanger.

Standard hangers usually run between 17″ and 18″ wide, which means that petite clothing will stretch when hung, inevitably causing long term damage to your garments. Instead, look for hangers that are specifically made in petite or junior sizes. I purchased a bundle of junior sized hangers from Only Hangers. The juniors size hanger is 14″ wide (pictured at right below) and allows my petite size clothing to hang appropriately and eliminates the improper stretching and pulling caused by the standard 18″ hanger (pictured at left).

When you’re investing in and working to build a quality wardrobe, proper care is essential. Insignificant as it seems, using the right hanger can make a big impact in the life of your garments. Be sure to take care of your investments!

Martha Stewart.com has some additional guidance on when to hang vs. fold your clothing which you may also find helpful!

Do any of you have tips for proper care for your wardrobe? I’d love to hear them!

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
