    I forgot to post about this when it happened to warn you!

    Ladies clothes from Matalan have rubbery hoops inside not only are they long and annoying but they are also damaging to your machine! My machine broke down just before Megan arrived the guy untangled one of these loops from the piece of machine effected costing us a nice £70 to replace!

    So if you buy from Matalan - Pull them off! I bought loads of big comfy tops whist pregnant but a top that cost me a couple of quid cost me an extra £70!

    They have them in a few other shops too (are they to stop things falling off the hangers?)

    I always cut them off x

    I have only ever found clothes with rubbery ones in Matalan! Other shops are material ones? They are on my clothes anyway! Caitlin actually pulls them from under my arm and gets it 'over' her headhink its terrible :|

    I hate those things, I cut them out and use a "fuzzy" hanger so the clothes don't fall off.
