Hip-Hugger® Basket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap weak handles. they break off the title says it all. another gimmicky basket that doesn't pay attention to materials and good design. Handles are too weak to lift a full basket and breakout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hip-hugger Laundry is great! I have had mine a number of years and it simplifies logistics because you can easily rest the laundry on your hip while using your free arm to open doors! Thank you Rubbermaid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this sucker is tough! I got this for a wedding present, back in 2002. It has stayed in better shape that EVERY other lesser laundry basket I have bought since then. I haven't found anything that even compares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LASTED 17 YEARS! Hope they didn't cheapen 'em now! My handles JUST broke & I've had this exact Rubbermaid laundry basket since I got married...17 years ago! (The darn thing could have it's driver's license by now, hehe:) ~Seriously though, it looks brand-spanking new otherwise! Hoping to have the same luck with the next one. Just wish they offered better colors (the one I have is a pearlized blue---usually hate the color blue, but this is pretty nice & doesn't look cheap). I've read reviews on the imitation "Rubbermaids" & they apparently have sharp edges & are cheap flimsy junk. - Soooo, another Rubbermaid it is! (Never once got cut on it, nor did it snag any clothes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this basket! I have 3 different Rubbermaid baskets and this is my favourite. It's sturdy construction allows me to carry it with one hand while opening doors or turning on lights. This is a case of bigger is not always better. I fit through doors with this basket. The large version makes doorways a struggle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like but handle breaks This is my second one.  First one broke at middle handle.  Now, this one is also failing.  RM needs to strengthen at this point.  Don't know if I'll try a third.  Would like to hear from RM if they are doing anything to solve this problem.  Other than that, I like basket very much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE RUBBERMAID HIP HUGGER LAUNDRY BASKET ACTUALLY, I THOUGHT THIS LOOKED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AS I HAVE TO WALK FROM MY BASEMENT UP A LONG FLIGHT OF STEPS AND THEN THROUGH A COUPLE OF ROOMS TO MY OUTSIDE DOOR WHERE I HANG MY CLOTHES IN THE BACK YARD. I COULD FEEL THE EASE OF CARRYING IT BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT, I AM ON MY THIRD BASKET AS THE HANDLES BREAK VERY VERY EASY AND THEN THE HARD PLASTIC IS CUTTING MY HANDS ALL UP AND THE BASKET IS SLIPPING AND SCRATCHING ME EVERYWHERE AND IT HURTS SO I AM ACTUALLY TIRED OF WASTING MY MONEY ON THESE CHEAP PLASTIC BASKETS. I HAVE TWO WITH BROKEN HANDLES AS I SPEAK AND I AM ON MY THIRD BASKET. I KNOW THAT I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANYMORE OF THESE UNLESS THEY ARE BUILT BETTER THAN THEY ARE. LAUNDRY DAY IS ONE OF MY ENJOYMENTS AS I LOVE HANGING OUT MY LAUNDRY WITH PRIDE BUT NOW IT IS A PAIN AND I MEAN THAT LITERALLY.
