Even as a teen living at my parents’ house, I’ve always struggled to keep my closet neat and organized. Ironically, I’ve only downsized space over the years. I had a multi-tier walk-in closet in Illinois, and now I only have one closet to put all of my worldly possessions in. As my boyfriend, who I live with, can attest, I’m always grumbling about how I have too much stuff and not enough space to put it in.

I have all sorts of clothing organizers — underbed storage bags, a hanging purse organizer, and collapsible closet bins — but I still have trouble keeping everything in order. My biggest pain point is the amount of clothes that I have. When they tower too high on my closet shelves, everything becomes a giant mess. I figured that the way I was stacking pants, leggings, and shorts was the problem, so when I was offered the chance to test MORALVE’s pant hangers, I realized I might actually be able to see my pants collection, without having to rifle through a giant pile.

I got the two-pack set. Some minor assembly is required, but it only took me a few minutes to put both hangers together. These are definitely the classiest-looking hangers in my closet. The mahogany-colored beechwood makes me want to be a person who plans out their outfits the night before.

And, because we love things that are multifunctional and adjustable at AT, I was also impressed by the fact that you can hang this hanger either horizontally or vertically. As you can guess, I don’t have enough space in this small NYC closet to hang them horizontally, but if I ever upgrade my apartment and get a much bigger closet, I would consider hanging them horizontally, so things are easier to grab.

The individual hangers do slide on the silver metal bar, so you don’t have to wrestle a pair of pants out. With the two pack, there 10 hangers for pants or scarves. I personally doubled up some of my leggings, because they were so lightweight. I have a total of 14 pairs of pants and leggings hanging in my closet, which freed up an entire column of storage space on my shelf.

I’d highly recommend the two-pack for people who are short on shelf space. These hangers are also on sale right now, so you should snag them before they return to their full price tag!
