Our 17" padded muslin hanger is a must for heavy gowns. These hangers will help prevent stretching and damage to the fabric. We do not use foam in our padded hangers. Foam will eventually break down and damage the garment being preserved. Our hangers are stuffed with cotton batting. They also have small pearl buttons to hold the straps of the gowns -- if you would prefer a smooth hanger the buttons can be easily removed. Our muslin hanger and garment bag make a beautiful gift for a special occasion.
