The Importance of Wedding Dress Covers

Whether you want a dress bag to store your wedding dress in before and after the wedding, or looking for a bag to transport the garments to the destination getting the perfect wedding dress cover is a necessary part of your planning.

 

Garment Bags for Wedding Dresses

Like every bride there has ever been you’ve probably spent quite a lot of money on your wedding dress. So much so that they should be kept pristine before and after the big day.

Wedding dress covers are available in all different shapes, colours, styles and sizes so making sure you have the right one for your dress can be quite tricky. Here at Hangerworld we really enjoy helping brides to be find the right cover for their dress.

Wedding Dress Cover

For wedding dresses with a wide skirt like this one we’d recommend a long garment bag with an extra wide gusset. Make sure the bag allows your dress to breath but keeps dust, light and insects away.

Wedding Dress Cover

For dresses that are quite ‘straight up and down’ a quality dress bag with a small side gusset for breathing space would be perfect.

Travel wedding dress covers with gusset and carry handle are perfect for transporting wedding dresses abroad. They’re a full 72″ length, with a sturdy folding bar and handle in the centre. A small gusset runs along the sides getting wider at the bottom for skirts and trains. They’re also shower proof and breathable and available in various colours!

Clever Clips – How do you use yours?

How do you use yours? 

We have been having a lot of fun here at Hangerworld coming up with creative uses for our range of Clever Clips.

Clever Clips are that versatile they can literally be used for anything. The Hangerworld team have been really creative with their ideas.

Clever ClipsThe standard shoe/boot hanging idea is used by most of our customers. It’s a great way to store your footwear or hang them to dry if you’ve cleaned them.

 

Clever Clips This is such a useful way to use the clips. Any one who uses cooking books will know that they can get very messy when your preparing intricate meals. The clips keep the book out of the way and open on the right page. Perfect!

 

Clever Clips This is a great idea! Tea towels can dry much better when they’re hung. And by using the clips there’s no need for sticky hooks or drilling.

 

This little guys loves clever clips. He never loses his keys any more.

 

Look, they are even used for industrial purposes. Who needs electrical wire clips when you have Clever Clips?!

 

Clever Clips The weathers getting better (sometimes) and the flowers are blooming. You can use Clever Clips to hang plant and flower baskets!

 

How do you use yours? We’d love to know how you use your Clever Clips. The wackier the better!

5 Benefits of Hanging Your Clothes Out to Dry

Now that the weather is improving we’re able to take advantage and hang our clothes to dry either outdoors or indoors (weather permitting). There are benefits to hanging your clothes out to dry and they easily out weigh using a money guzzling, space wasting eco unfriendly dryer.

5 benefits of hanging your clothes out to dry 

1. Hanging your washing means you’re not using the dryer, which also means you’re saving electricity – therefore saving you some pennies each month.

2. Eco-friendly – by not using the dryer you’re reducing your carbon footprint

How to organise your children’s wardrobe

It’s a hard task to keep anything tidy and organised when you have children in the house. Especially in their bedrooms. However, keeping their wardrobes organised and tidy can be quite a simple task and one that the kids themselves can be involved in.

We have 5 products that help keep their spaces tidy, personalised, colourful and organised.

Kids plastic hangers – Children tend to have quite a large amount of clothes. Which means that the space you have needs to be utilised properly. By using thin but strong hangers you are able to keep the space for the clothes rather than the hangers. These rainbow themed plastic hangers are perfect to make any children’s wardrobe bright, personal and even colour coded!

 

Kids flocked hangers – For a more of a ‘grown up’ feel if you have slightly older children who manage their own wardrobe these blue and pink flocked hangers are perfect. They are thin, practical and are flocked to protect clothing and stop garments from falling from the hangers and ending up in a pile at the bottom.

Garment covers – Garment covers are self explanatory… but they are great for protecting expensive items and keeping dust and insects away from delicate clothes. Add some cedar wood balls and you have the ultimate combination for the protection of precious clothes.

Under the bed storage – Under bed storage boxes are extremely practical for storing clothing during the changing seasons, for toys or extra bedding. When storing clothes, linen and even toys you need to be careful of insects, moths and moisture. By storing cedar wood products with the items, you’re less likely to have a nasty surprise when you eventually want the items back out for use again. These products come in various sizes and colours to co ordinate with your child’s room and personality.

Hanging storage – As well as under the bed storage, hanging storage is great if you’re lacking space. These over the door hangers are perfect for storing shoes, accessories, toys and stationary; even cleaning products, kitchen items, bathroom products, anything you can think of storing in them in the rest of your home.

 

Keeping rooms organised helps keep them clean and tidy in the long term. Teaching children a simple value of organisation is beneficial for them as they get older.

 

All of the products listed are available on the Hangerworld website.

The Right Clothes Hangers

Not every person is aware that using the right clothes hangers can significantly increase the life span of your clothing and make sure it looks it’s best whilst hanging on you, and since the whole world has gone Oscars mad this week we decided to make this Oscars themed!

Lupita Nyong'oHere we have a delicate material that is light and flowing. This type of material can be misshapen and damaged quite easily, which is why the best type of hanger for these garments are padded hangers. They protect the shoulders and, because they’re curved, keep the shoulder shape.

 

 

The strapless dress is a tough one. More often than not the strapless dresses have hanger loops sewn inside the dress which allow you to hang the dress up. For this a strong hanger is needed, wooden hangers are perfect.

 

For suits it is very important that you have the right hanger. One that is strong, wide and broad. Suit hangers keep the shape of your jacket as if you were wearing it, which is important considering they’re in the wardrobe 80% of the time.

The hanger should be shoulder to shoulder in width, with broad shoulder supports and ideally a trouser bar for the matching pants.

 

This dress is a difficult one because the neck line is wide and there is slight padding in the shoulders. This also needs a strong hanger because not only is it floor length but there is a lot of extra material which will make the dress quite heavy. This calls for an extra wide hanger with extra support from a trouser bar and broad shoulders.

The Importance of a Quality Suit Hanger

It’s been a great few weeks for fashion, with New York and London fashion weeks and the Baftas. We’ve seen a great deal of tuxedos and suits and not just on the men… (We’re looking at you Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne) And let’s be honest, most men own a suit either for work or special occasions, so we feel that now is a good a time as any to spread the message of the importance of a good suit hanger for every gender. Because we care.

 

 

Due to the nature of our business we have acquired a passion for the importance of certain hangers for certain items of clothing. And considering the hangers are made for specific reasons we can’t see why having a good quality hanger is overlooked so often. Because the way you hang your clothes has such an impact on the shape and life span of them, and most of us like to invest money and creativity in to what we wear because they’re just as much an expression of our character as they are to keep us warm and dignified. Invest wisely. And it is an investment, because hangers last for a long time, they’re always in use and they save your clothes from losing their value. What more could you ask for in an every day product?

So what constitutes as a good quality suit hanger?

 

When it comes to suits and tuxedos, the hanger they’re stored on is very important. It needs to be sturdy, to hold the weight of the jacket and to make sure the shape of the shoulders and collar is kept in near enough the same condition as it would if it were on your shoulders. The hanger should replicate your shoulders – in width and strength. The width of the hanger should be from shoulder to shoulder, making sure it does not pass the point where the shoulder meets with the sleeve. This is especially important for those of us with broad shoulders.

 

Most suit hangers are produced with a trouser bar. Below is a diagram of the best way to hang your trousers. This saves misshaping and stops the trousers from falling from the bar.

How to correctly hang your trousers

 Don’t forget that your suits spend more time on their hangers than they do on your shoulders. So the importance of a sturdy, strong and high quality suit hanger really matters in the long run.
