Best Wire Hangers Thrifter 2020

There should be no room in your closet for easily broken and bulky hangers. Metal wire hangers are a lot thinner than plastic and wooden hangers, allowing you to keep more clothes in your closet without taking up so much space. They're generally a bit more durable too, and some even have shoulder indents for added versatility when hanging certain types of clothing. There are a lot of great picks out there, so we've rounded up six of the best options across Amazon that are worth the purchase.

Hanging it up...

Most wire hangers are pretty similar and it's hard to go wrong when you're picking from the selection above. However, there are a few minute differences between certain models which can make some better suited for your closet than others. For instance, Timmy's stainless steel wire hangers each have shoulder indents which make them useful for hanging clothing with short straps that might otherwise slip off the hanger; that's something you won't find on most other models.

Hanger Honcho's bulk wire hangers are some of our favorites. They're available in packs of 100 and 200 at a lower cost than many of the competitors. Then again, they are 18 inches wide where other versions like the Hangorize Hangers are only 16 inches wide, so that's something to keep in mind when making your final selection.
