I feel silly being excited about hangers - but I am.Still. And I've been using them for years. The hangers keep your clothes looking the way they were meant to. I do mix in the regular tube hangers for my sleeveless shirts.

Olka Hangers Are The Best!
I have totally revamped my closet with Olka hangers!

I can't believe I found a rack that will finally fit my clothes, and not leave any marks on the shoulders. I was having a problem with regular plastic hangers leaving imprints on my expensive sweaters on the shoulders where they hung on the rack, and they made the sweater look silly when I wore them. I always had these awkward bumps...... I purchased these, and they work perfectly. They fit sweaters/blouses just right so they round the shoulder, and won't leave marks like other hangers. I replaced all my old hangers with these!

Modern look from a modern plastic
What can be said that hasn't been said already? I'll get technical: Olka hangers are made of polypropylene, recognizable by its translucency, lack of any scent, and an inability to be snapped - which is due to its very long chain molecules, that the DOE Office of Science says are entangled with each other like "cooked long noodles". Strong and light, and smooth to the touch, these are made of the perfect material (and one that is environmentally friendly).
Aesthetically, they are unique. The translucent /white-ish hangers would look fantastic on a silver/chrome metal clothes rod. I did not buy the colored ones so I can't comment on those. Perhaps metal or wood hangers would look more classical, but if your tastes run more to the modern, or perhaps if you wish to save metal or wood hangers for a few special suits while having something else more affordable (but still stylish) for your greater numbers of shirts, these Olka hangers would be a distinctive choice. In an ideal world they could be more rounded than ribbed, but that is for strength.
These slip really easily into even small t-shirt neck openings by the way - no stretching at all. They find their way easily, I suppose because of the curved shape.
