Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY FOUND SOLUTION TO BOOT STORAGE I am thrilled that I found a solution to my boot problem!! I have several long pairs of boots that I have been tripping over (literally) I had a long wish list for the perfect boot storage: - visible, but not in the way - dust-free - access one pair without moving several other pairs - nice-looking I have been researching possible solutions for a long time and I finally found something that works!! Not only is it functional, but it also looks fantastic! I can fit 2 long boots in each (I used the largest box) I also am using this solution to store less frequently worn shoes. I can fit 4 of them in the largest size. The boxes are so deep I can place one shoe in the back and the other in front of it with a slight overlap so I can see one of each shoe clearly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room makeover I wanted to do my room over by getting rid of as much wood & metal as possible making it easier for me & others to move my belongings around when need be. The container store has items that have worked for me so far. I have 2 extra strong plastic 3 reinforced drawer with wheels I use for clothes & a bedside table The sweater boxes I use for my dust collectors & trinkets so they are enclosed & safe because I gave up my hutch. Oh, I also bought the knit storage bins. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution I wanted a way to store my purses that would be dust free yet visible and without any hassle. These boxes were the perfect solution! Various sizes and I love the magnetic closure. I can devote a whole wall of my closet to boxed and hanging purses, using the container store hooks as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Storage idea not just for sweaters I was looking for a nice looking container to house little model cars my brother collected. Not wanting to leave them out in the open where they dusty easily. I bought these beautiful boxes with a clear window on the front where you can see them and easily access them. They’re sturdy and will last forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lien Drop Front Sweater Box I have wanted to get 1 or a few of these types of boxes for a few years now, but I was never able to because the price was too expensive. When I was able to get it at a great discount, it is a great box to have. It "could be" a few inches longer (at least 2") that way you can fit 2 sweaters side by side, so I made the folding smaller to get 2 sweaters in side by side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweater boxes These look great in the closet while holding clothes preferably folded instead of hung. They keep clothes looking new. Good quality. Light weight for placing on shelves, but also durable enough for stacking. Can be used for many things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater box This was the perfect product to push me into organizing my closet. My sweaters fit in perfectly, and stay neatly folded inside, plus, it provides a little shelf on top for something that might be accessed more frequently. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & Functional I recently converted a spare bedroom into a dressing room using the Elfa system. I knew I had a lot of sweaters & cardigans and I didn't want to fold them into piles and leave them out on the top shelves. I love that these boxes fit exactly on the Elfa 16" deep wire shelves. They hold several pieces each, but I ended up needing 5 of them. Now not only am I forced to keep my sweaters folded nicely, but the top shelf looks neat and they are protected from getting dusty or toppling over. They do have a bit of an odor when new, but I think that dissipates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great for sweaters I used to store my sweaters in plastic boxes but I started to notice the plastic gave off an unpleasant smell. These boxes are covered in cloth. They are really quite lovely. I don't notice any smell and my sweaters feel pampered. An excellent solution. I just wish they were less expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWEATER STORAGE SOLUTION I saw these beautiful sweater boxes the first time I was in the Container Store but I didn't get them. I never forgot them and purchased 10 this week. I wish I hadn't wasted so much time and money on other sweater organization methods before I finally tried the BEST...these! They are so classy and look sleek in your closet for your sweaters. I had mine jammed into ugly unfortunate plastic bins before. No more. Now my beautiful garments get the respect they deserve nestled beautifully into these attractive gray boxes. And I adore the front open magnetic feature which gracefully closes and opens with ease. I am thrilled with my purchases! Oh and I also discovered that you can store other items beautifully too. I had a throw pillow that I wanted to keep dust free and nice! Perfect! And you could also store seasonal items in it during the off season like mittens and gloves, scarves. Love love love. Now I need more. :) Highly recommend to all!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for shoes, too We just had TCS closets installed, including one piece that functions as a dresser and will be visible as you walk in our bedroom. My husband wanted something nice to hold his shoes, and he liked these boxes. He stacked his shoes with one atop the other (upside down and reversed), and was able to fit three pairs of shoes in each box. He likes how compact it is, and that his shoes will be protected from dust. He used a third box to hold his sweaters. They are slightly bulky men's sweaters, and he can fit three in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! These boxes have saved my closet!!! I have them in the shirt size and also the sweater size! I can not believe how much I can fit in them! And its so easy to keep everything organized, and accessible. I love that these are so sturdy and stackable! These boxes have completely transformed my top shelf of my closet from falling over piles of clothes, that I could never find what I was looking for , To neatly stacked, easy to access bins! Totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organized flexibility I absolutely love these drop front boxes. They have a tiny magnet in the drawer front which allows it to stay closed easily. Are use them stacked in my closet and the clear front allows me to easily find what I'm looking for. When I had to move I picked up all of the boxes and minimized the headache of rearranging my clothes when I arrived at my new location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Convenient I purchased these to keep my bulkier sweaters out of my dresser drawers and they work fabulously. I can fit 2 hoodies each box which is nice since I don't wear them often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it! I bought these after having quite a bit of moth damage to my sweaters one year. These keep them protected and dust-free. They are sturdy enough to stack. You can see your sweaters and access them really easily with the "drop down" front flap. They are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I had a custom closet designer come to my home and give me a bid of $4,000 to do my closet. Instead, I opted to buy several of these sweater boxes, the plastic drop front shoe boxes and the huggable hangers, and I couldn't be happier. I now have a place for everything and can see my folded items and shoes easily without having to rummage through drawers or boxes. My closet looks great and I saved a ton of money!

Community Q&A

Is the box shipped as is or is it folded which requires some assembly?

Asked by: Montyawn
It's as shown. No assembly required but that's an excellent question. I don't care much for assembly myself. ;)
Answered by: Steamingirlie
Date published: 2018-04-20

Are all sides of the box finished with the fabric?

Specifically is the bottom finished the same as the sides and top with grey fabric?
Asked by: Montyawn
Yes they gray on all sides except of course the front where you can see through where you open it up to put your sweaters in.

How many thicker/heavier sweaters can fit in one of these boxes?

I really like the look of these boxes but most of my sweaters are thicker cable knits and I want to know how many thicker sweaters fit in one box? All the pictures seem to show thinner sweaters. I don't think the price will be worth it, however, if I can only fit 1-2 per box. Thanks to anyone who can help!
Asked by: Moey
You should be able to fit three sweaters, based on my husband fitting his slightly bulky men's sweaters.

I'm wondering how much weight these bokes can withstand on top of them. I'm thinking of using them as part of a bed frame

They don't seem sturdy enough for that.

Can 5 or 6 of these stack without collapsing?

I have an armoire that I would like to fill with these, but need to know if they will hold up to being stacked 6 high when filled with sweaters and tshirts.
Asked by: Eshie
I have them stacked 3 high and filled with sweaters, and they are holding up very well.

Was there any noticeable smell from this product?

Asked by: NolaM
It smells horrible. I've had them for a month now and it still stinks. I hope the smell goes away but after one month you'd think it would've dissipated by now.
