We will admit right up front that this is the most attractive hanger we tested. The sleek, clear acrylic design works well in upscale modern closets as well as dark, tiny closets because you can see through them.
The width of the top of the hanger also means you’re less likely to get marks on the shoulders of your shirts and sweaters; the rounded edges help prevent that. But the crossbar below the hanger, on the suit hangers, also makes it easy and convenient to hang pants, whether as part of a pantsuit or on their own.
However, that hanger width also means you can’t hang dozens in your closet; they take up a good amount of space. So, if you have a smaller closet, this may not be your best option, unless you limit what you hang. (For small closets, we recommend these Timmy wire hangers.)
The Container Store acrylic hangers glided smoothly across the metal rod in our closet, as did the clothes when we went to remove them. There are notches in the tops of the hangers that make it easy to keep lightweight dresses and camisoles in place, too.
The only real downside of this particular hanger is the price—it’s pricier than the other hangers we tested.
