Fashion stylist reveals how popular velvet hangers are RUINING your clothing – particularly if you’re petite

A professional fashion stylist has revealed why you need to ditch the velvet hangers in your closet immediately – especially if you’re petite.

The tip was shared by Los Angeles-based stylist Becca Kahane in a video posted to TikTok this week.

Kahane, who also works as a personal shopper, often takes to her social media accounts to share her wardrobe styling tips and tricks, as well as trend predictions.

In a new clip, Kahane explained her reasoning for urging people to avoid velvet hangers, explaining that she had originally learned the tip from a professional wardrobe archiver.

‘Do not use these types of hangers, especially if you are a petite woman under a size six,’ Kahane began.

‘You do not want to use these for tops, dresses, sweaters, jackets,’ she continued.

The stylist revealed that when you hang your clothes on velvet hangers, it will stretch out the shoulders of the garments, explaining that the size of the closet accessories combined with the fact that they cling to the fabric of your clothing can lead to disaster. 

She also demonstrated why this occurs, revealing that the hanger’s width is typically much bigger than the width of her own shoulders.

‘So, if you put a top on it, it will stretch out the top and the shoulder area, so your sleeve won’t fall properly where it’s supposed to, and it will create a little dip,’ she said.

‘You don’t want that, it will ruin your shirts.’

The solution?

Instead of buying velvet hangers, Kahane recommended buying kids’ size hangers.

America’s mental health crisis is having a widespread impact that touches everyone.

“One of the things that we underestimate as a society is how our global mental health impacts us as individuals. And we have seen it over and over again as we experience gun violence,” said Michele Neff Hernandez, a 2021 CNN Hero who has helped millions navigate grief and loss through her nonprofit Soaring Spirits. “We can see what happens when people don’t get the help they need; there can be tragic consequences.”

Neff Hernandez is one of many CNN Heroes who have found unique ways to help people with their mental health. Some of them marked Mental Health Awareness Month by sharing advice and insight with CNN’s Elizabeth Belanger about what is working for their communities. Below are edited versions of their conversations.

For Neff Hernandez, whose organization helps widowed people connect with each other in a community of support, it’s important for everyone to know they aren’t alone in their struggle. Mental illness is common, yet the stigma surrounding
