6 Best Hangers for Dress Shirts (Options for every situation)

Dress shirts need special care every step of the way. Whether you’re washing, drying, ironing, or hanging, you have to go the extra mile to avoid creases, blemishes, or ugly wrinkles.

Since I have covered the washing part before, today, I’ll talk about hanging dress shirts and the best hangers to get the job done.

You might be tempted to use just about any hanger for your dress shirts. But that would be a mistake that the dress shirt will make visible quickly.

You might see knobs on the shoulders, creases near the collar, or distort the style of the dress shirt when you take it out of the wardrobe. I scoured the online stores for the best hangers for dress shirts on the market and came up with this list.

6 Best Hangers for Dress Shirts

Please note that all the product links in this article are paid and will take you to Amazon.

1. Best Overall: Zober Premium Velvet Shirt Hangers (50 Pack)

As we all know, dress shirts tend to slip off the hanger. Even a slight slip can create creases and make the shirt look awry, especially when it’s squeezed among other shirts and other clothes in the wardrobe for a long time.

Zober designed these premium velvet hangers specifically for shirts that tend to slip or slide over the hanger. They’re ultra slim, lightweight, yet sturdy and durable.

Admittedly, sturdiness isn’t an issue with dress shirt hangers since the shirts themselves are lightweight. Still, you’d want your hangers to last and not break easily. Which is exactly what Zober offers.

The hangers are non-slip, thanks in part to the textured velvet fabric that covers them, and the other part has to do with the symmetrical design that doesn’t slouch yet doesn’t lift the shirt at the shoulder stiffly.

2. Best Heavy Duty: Clear Hangers Heavy Duty 12 Pack Plastic Hangers

Dress shirts have elegant designs, and they need equally elegant hangers. Deilsy created these clear hangers for your designer clothes, especially dress shirts.

They are surprisingly firm and don’t bend easily. This makes them suitable not just for dress shirts but other heavier garments such as jackets and sweaters. Versatility is at the heart of the design for these stylish hangers.

But don’t let their stiffness worry you. The design follows the lines of the dress shirt and lets the shoulders drape naturally over the two wings of the hanger without altering their shape or creating unwanted creases or deformities no matter how long you keep the dress shirts in the wardrobe.

The hooks swivel 360 degrees for convenience.

3. Best Space Saving: Hangers Space Saving Clothes Hanger 2 Packs

Not everyone has the luxury of a large walk-in wardrobe. If your closet is packed with clothes, you might need to organize it better with space-saving hangers. They allow you to hang more than one dress shirt on the same hanger.

These space-saving hangers from Hangerspace allow you to hang 4 dress shirts on one hanger comfortably. They come in two packs which handle up to 8 dress shirts between them.

Made of stainless steel, the hangers are as sturdy as they come. Even if you add in the odd jacket or cardigan to the dress shirts on the same hanger, the sturdy hanger can handle the extra weight.

The recommended weight capacity for each hanger is 40 pounds.  

4. Best Wood Hangers: Edergoo Wood Hangers 30 Pack, Non-Slip Wooden Hangers

Wood hangers are stylish and never go out of fashion. Moreover, natural wood doesn’t interact with the colors or chemicals in the clothes and, next to stainless steel, is quite sturdy and durable.

If you prefer natural wood over synthetic hangers, then I recommend this wood hangers pack from Edergoo. The odorless hangers will keep the dress shirts in good shape for as long as you keep them in the wardrobe.

The finish on the hangers is eco-friendly paint which makes them safe and hypoallergenic. Each hanger can handle as much as 11 pounds of clothes.

If you run out of dress shirts, you can use the remaining wood hangers in the pack for coats, jackets, wool sweaters, and other heavy clothes. 

5. Best Travel Hangers: 12 PCS Travel Hangers – Portable Folding Clothes Hangers

If your job or line or work requires you to travel a lot, then packing your dress shirt must be a problem. The last thing you’d want is to show up for the business meeting in a creased shirt.

Trubetter came up with smart and practical hangers for frequent travelers who spend a lot of time on the road and keep their clothes in a suitcase. The folding hangers keep the clothes firmly in place and prevent creases and wrinkles.

Trubetter has a skid-proof and anti-slip design. Rather than relying on velvet to prevent non-slipping, they have a unique design that keeps the dress shirts from sagging.

The ends of the hangers preserve the shape of the dress shirts with their ergonomic design. 

6. Best Budget: Utopia Home Plastic Hangers 30 Pack

If you’re on a budget or have lots of dress shirts to keep in a small closet, Utopia has this 30-pack for just those two purposes.

They are made of plastic which explains their low price tag, and with a slim design, they don’t take up much space in your wardrobe.

The sleek and slim hangers are quite durable, which even adds more value to your investment.

Conclusion

Dress shirts need ergonomically designed hangers that preserve the shape of the shirt, prevent creases and sagging, and avoid unsightly knobs.

Each one of the hangers on this list serves a different purpose, but they all keep your dress shirts in good shape.
