PEVA Shoulder Covers
Does the Job
I have a walk-in closet and my white shirts were getting a little dusty on the shoulders. I was using the paper covers from the dry cleaners, but they're kind of tacky.
With these plastic covers on sale, I bought a few sets to replace the paper, and also cover shirts that I don't wear often. I like that they're see thru. I can easily cover three tops using one cover.
The only thing I'm concerned about is the slit at the top where the hangers pass through. It's kind of hard to get the hangers through, like threading a needle. And, with taking hangers in and out as I wear the clothes and then put them back, I wonder if the slit will hold up over time. I also wonder if the clear plastic will stay crispy clear or if it will dull and yellow over time. I will report back if they end up turning yucky. As for now, they're brand new and I'm happy with them.

Will do the job...
The covers will keep the dust off clothes. However, I purchased them for my husband's suits. He wears a men's medium and the covers are not broad enough; they wrinkle the sleeves even if they are folded over to lay in front of the suit.

No more dust in your shoulders!
If you live in a place where there is lot of dust, polen or something similar... this is the best thing you can buy to protect the shoulders of your jackets and suits... You spend a lot of money taking your clothes to the dry cleanind and after a week or two the shoulders of the suit you want to wear are dusty... if you cover them with this... it will be just ready to wear!.
Highly recommend it!

Made to last
An additional situation that is solved by these covers is abrasion caused by material rubbing against the closet walls. I found that several of my suede and corduroy jackets were starting to show marks at the shoulders from rubbing against the closet wall. My entire house is done in that "orange peel" finish, so the walls all have that texture. I'm sure it would do the same on other plush materials such as velvet or cashmere. I've bought cheaper brands of shoulder covers before but they tend to get brittle with age and are not as sturdy. I've had some of these for over 3 years and they've withstood attic temperatures.
