GREAT PRODUCT. I'm so glad I fell for the HSN sales hype this time because they really are life changing (well, closet changing) in their small way.
I've tried the original Huggable hangers by Joy Mangano/HSN and also just bought a 10-pack of the similar ones from Bed Bath and Beyond out of necessity. I haven't had enough time to comment on the BBB hangers' longevity, but so far, they seem quite similar, other than a divot in the top of the BBB hanger for small straps. It's not really necessary since the velour keeps the straps from slipping, but it's not hurting anything by being there.
Compared to fat plastic hangers, they are quite thin. They aren't much thicker than wire hangers so you don't have to switch hangers in a hanging bag when traveling.
The velvety surface doesn't let fabric slip, even with satin or spaghetti straps. Also, since they are so thin, you can fit many more clothes in your closet, which has to be good, right?
Basically, whatever stuff the HSN sharks say it does, it does. (Not so much with some of Joy Mangano's other products, like the 35 pound carry-on bag and the gold lame apron to wear when hosting dinner parties, but I digress).
This may sound silly, but they look nice and make the closet look nice and uniform. The Huggable hangers come in a jillion colors (over 20, I think) with your choice of either gold or silver hardware. Completely unimportant from a utilitarian standpoint, but if you're on MUA, you probably care about fun stuff like that. They even come out with new colors from time to time, so you can coordinate and have smaller hangers for kids clothes. You can get different colors for various family members, which might be cool for kids or organization freaks.
Anyway, I really like them and the sets make great gifts because they are the kind of thing you don't know you need until you try them. I think BBB had sets too, which is a better value than buying them in the 10 packs. HSN has Joy Mangano on all the time and she has great specials on those days. You can sign up to have them e-mail when the shows are on, because I don't actually watch HSN if I can help it. : )

Love it! My husband and I share a tiny closet, so I bought the 50-pack of Bed Bath and Beyond's version of Huggables to try. I was so impressed I just went back to buy two additional 10-packs to finish our closet and fit out the coat closet. They really do save a ton of space, and I love that I can hang sweaters with them without ending up with stretched necklines or the dreaded shoulder bumps. With the two BBB coupons I used, without which no one should buy anything there (everyone knows you can use expired coupons and that they'll take more than one per purchase, right?), my cost was 67 cents per hanger--obviously much more expensive than 10-for-a-buck plastic ones, but well worth it.

I bought 2 boxes of the BBB k/o cuz I moved into a smaller apt with less closet space (I went from having a walk in, 1 coat closet and another regular closet to just having 1 regular closet and 1 coat closet)
I was able to put most of my stuff from 3 closets into those two! I may have to get more hangers, but I love the uniformity and the amount of space I save. I also like how my silky tops don't slip around b/c the flocking makes a very non-slip surface. It just takes a little bit longer to hang up and remove an item in order for it to be hung in proper shape cuz the material won't slide around on it. I've had these for less than a week so I don't know if they're durable, and I still bought about 10 plastic tubing hangers for when I drip dry something (I'm pretty sure you can't get the huggables wet) but it is so worth the extra price!
Regular plastic hangers cost about $1.50 for 10. So to get 100 would be $15.
I got 100 huggable k/os at BBB for about $66 ($40/50 hangers but w/20% coupon for each). So the difference is about $50. But I think the organization makes it so worth it! I will keep buying more with BBB coupons (they always have them).
Note, I also bought the clip on skirt hangers so I can hang my skirts up.
Also note that I intend on keeping the boxes they come in as I find it was nicely packed and in case I move, I will be bringing these babies with me as I consider organizing my clothes an investment in my sanity!
update: my wardrobe has expanded and i have since bought another box, so now i have 150 hangers! i really should get rid of some of my clothes!

they work, they create more closet space. But things DO slip off and the hanger DO break. Overall I will never use another hanger I will use these for life. Hint.. only buy them when HSN is having a sale

I have been using huggable hangers for several years and will never go back to any other type of hanger. Prior to huggable hangers my husband and I used several types of hangers: plastic tube hangers, clear plastic hangers with obtained with clothing purchases, wooden hangers and even a few wire hangers. Everything left little lumps on my shirts where the ends of the hanger were, or my pants would slip off the hangers, summery shirts would slip off the hangers, or the hanger itself would break or bend. And my closet was a mess, in that there was no uniformity or organization with all those different types of hangers. Then I tried huggable hangers. Flocked hangers, such as huggable hangers, hold every sort of clothing item, with no slipping, and no hanger marks on clothing. I can hang a silky camisole on a huggable hanger and it will stay on. The flocking creates just enough grip to keep everything in place. Also, the shape of the huggable hanger makes it so there are no hanger marks on the shirt shoulder area. Huggable hangers are slim, and uniformity in hanger type, plus the slimness of the hanger width, makes a HUGE difference in the neatness of my closet and the resulting neatness of my hanging clothes. You can also buy plastic clips that attach to the huggable hanger to hold pants and skirts. I recently found that WalMart sells flocked hangers that are nearly identical to the huggable hangers found on HSN. The price works out to be about the same as what I typically find on HSN; roughly $1 per hanger. The resulting neatness in closet and clothing is worth the extra cost.

Huggable hangers are sold on HSN.com and have been for years. I just picked up the Bed, Bath and Beyond version 'Ultra Slim Flocked Hangers' a few days ago and redid my closet with them. The hangers are built slim and flat so that they create more space, and covered with a flocked velvet type fabric so that clothes do not fall off the hanger. Here is my review so far.
They have created quite a bit of space in my tiny new york city closet. With my wood hangers I had to hang 2 or 3 skirts over one hanger to be able to fit all the hangers i needed and all the clothes into my closet, but with the huggable hangers I can fit all my clothes on their own hanger, as it should be, and now I can see everything clearly and that makes a huge difference. My clothes are no longer bunched up, love it.
Their durability is pretty good. not as good as wood hangers of course, but good enough. I have had to throw a few out, but that's not biggie. Sometimes my little dog bites them in half, and sometimes i just put something too heavy on it then after a while too much manuvering will break it. No big deal, they're cheap enough to buy a few more.
I bought mine from BBB for $35 for a set of 50 (40 plus a 20% off coupon that I bought off ebay for $1.50 for 2). = $0.75 a hanger. : )
