Best Answer

A clothes hanger is generally smaller than a coat hanger. A clothes hanger can also be made to fit the size of clothing--as an example, baby clothing uses baby-sized hangers.

A true coat hanger is often larger and made of thicker, stronger metal to hold the weight of heavier material.
