Two rigid support fingers 10 extend downwardly from respective ends of the bar 4 and two rigid support elements 12 extend downwardly from respective inward positions of the bar. Respective convoluted spring devices 14 extend between the support fingers 10 and support elements 12. Each convolution 16, 18, 20, 22 or 24 of the spring devices 14 effectively defines a respective downwardly extending support finger. In use, a pair of briefs is engaged with the hanger, with opposing ends of the waist band of the briefs being hooked over selected convolutions 16, 18, 20, 22 or 24. When so disposed, the selected convolutions of the spring devices are placed under compression and thereby serve to relieve some of the tension in the waist band so that the waist band is not held in a taut state.
