Can someone tell me why womens clothing has those stupid hanging loops inside and does anyone ever use the things.. they just annoy me and have to be cut off as they stick out jumpers and tops and are annoying.. then we have those itchy annoying small labels at the back of the neck of tops etc... I know it has a make and size but then all or most clothes now have one two or three labels on them, not required and what a waste of time and effort on the makers part putting these on...

I used to use the hanging loops all the time until I invested in the "velvet" hangers. Nothing slides off of them. But back when I used the plastic tube hangers, the loops were an absolute necessity, otherwise much of my wardrobe would be on the floor of my closet.

Ditto for what Hertfordshire said. I think part of the reason for the strings is for the store so the clothes stay on the hanger. Now I just cut them off. I also have found more and more clothing companies that are not putting the label on the back of the garment but instead are printing some of the information on the back of the neck (like Hanes no tag t-shirts) or they are putting the label further down near the hip area. I despise those labels as I have very sensitive and easily irritated skin.

The labels that get put down along the side seam bug me more, from a sensory standpoint, than ones at the neck. Especially if they hit right at the curve of my waist.

Me too. They always seem to be digging into my side. Even when I cut them, the rough edges are still very annoying.

I thought it was only me and my oldest who hates tags. My son used to freak out about the seams in his socks when he was young. I read somewhere that our sensory systems are too sensitive.

I have an older granddaughter who has always hated tags at her neck, they brought her out in a rash always.. she has to carefully cut them off... the other things are labels. some garments usually from more expensive shops sometimes have three dangling together what a waste of time and paper..

Cutting them makes them worse, for me. Ripping them out usually results in needing to mend the seam.

those velvet hangers are the business I must buy some more...as for the loops I hate them.. they appear out the neckline of down a short sleeve when least expected..

Some people have sensory issues above and beyond the norm. I've taught kids with autism who will rip a shirt to shreds because of an annoying tag. I taught a student with Down syndrome and neurological issues who would perseverate on loose threads. He would unravel his socks.
