Huggable Hangers – Space Saving Solution for Closets

by Theresa on April 18, 2009 · 3 comments

Huggable Hangers are created Joy Mangano. I've never heard of her before today...guess she's a hoity toity entrepreneur and inventor. She's also been on 20/20 and CBS, People Magazine and Good Housekeeping! Joy designs and patents most of her products exclusively for HSN.  Huggable Hangers are supposed to be designed especially to keep your clothing from slipping off hangers. Also because they're super thin, they save you precious closet space. Since over 200 million of these "special" hangers have been sold, I wondered what all the fuss was about....

Huggable Hangers save closet space

The closet from hell! Do you have one of these?

Huggable Hanger Features

  • Velvet flocked material - prevents clothes from slipping.
  • Long chrome hooks - allow large turtlenecks or scoop necks to be hung.
  • Gentle curves - preserves the shape of your clothing. No more shoulder bumps.
  • Color fast flocking - allows you to hang wet garments with no concern of colors running.
  • Cascading hooks - easily slide garments over the hook to hang multiple items using minimal space.
  • Finger clips - exclusively designed to be used with your huggable hangers. Adjustable and durable.
  • Comes with a manufacturer's 1-year limited warranty.
Huggable Hangers review

Huggable Hangers review

Joy Mangano has an assortment of products that come in a variety of package deals on HSN. They include....

Shirt hangers
Suit/pant hangers
4-bar pant hangers
Dust covers
Over-the-door hooks
Regular clips and cascade clips
Garment bags
Shoe bag that hangs on the back of your closet door

Good points
  • Biggest plus is the flocked surface which prevents garments, even the ones with tiny straps or silk blouses from slipping off the hanger.
  • They actually do use less space than traditional hangers because they are much thinner. They are only 1/4" thick which does make a difference when you have so many hangers in one closet.
  • Some report that they're able to hang twice as many clothes in their closets.
  • The varieties of colors are helpful if you want to sort and organize clothes as you take it out of the dryer. They can now be easily transfered to individual closets.
  • They keep your clothes free of shoulder indentations.
  • You can hang things you normally fold away into dressers. The clothes easily stay on the hangers just folded over rather than clipped.
  • Target now sells these hangers in groups of 5 for $4.99. Bed Bath and Beyond also now sell something very similar.

Bad Points

  • The [tags]huggable hangers[/tags]textured surface does make it a little more difficult to hang clingy type shirts and tops properly.Huggable Hangers can now be found at Target
  • The clips that you can buy separately are a big nuisance. They break, are hard to open and are expensive.
  • Minor lint problems from the flocked surface.
  • Expensive if bought at HSN.
  • I noticed a few complaints about hangers breaking and also some of the color coming off on their clothes. This doesn't seem to be the norm for most people.
  • If ordering from HSN there are some issues with people receiving broken or dirty hangers.

Huggable hangers are supposedly the most popular selling item on HSN. It seems that most people want the hangers only and not the clips. I would avoid HSN and actually head over to Target or Bed Bath and Beyond to pick these hangers up. By the way, if you're interested in organizing footwear here are a few solutions.

these are simply wire hangers which are covered with flocking. They are ok for light weight items – not for heavier sweaters or coats. Also, I bought additional clips and they were NOT as good as the original ones which you pull up to remove and down to attach. The new ones do not hold….clothes slip out of them.

Thanks Carol! Yeah it seems like everyone is having problems with those clips. They need some quality control when making these As Seen on TV products. They need to test everything…and monitoring customer service on these sites would be great too!

I purchased HH in Wedgewood Blue; when they arrived, they looked like a soft green color. Blue is a hard color to read on TV. I sent them back.
