What do you wear when you’re over 50 and your body isn’t perfect? Most clothes you find at the mall are either designed for a 20-year old or look like a sack or moo moo. Enter Covered Perfectly, an online clothing store that offers classy clothing that expressly caters to women over 50 and beyond.
Covered Perfectly was founded by Pauline Durban, a single British female entrepreneur who now lives in California. She became frustrated looking for clothes that were attractive and affordable, so she invested her life savings and created her own women’s clothing line at the age of 56. What makes her clothes unique is that she uses a fabric called MicroModal that’s breathable, super soft, and comfy.
Pauline contacted me to try out her line and I picked out a blue and black animal print chiffon cascading vest. She matched it with a white V-neck tee shirt with ¾ length sleeves and shipped to me right away.
I was excited when my package arrived and immediately tried on both pieces. I love that the vest is light, fun, and colorful but also covers my tummy. The print gives it a touch of pizzazz that I can wear to just about any occasion. It’s a great way to layer without it being heavy or overwhelming.
If you want to change out the look a bit you can tie the cascading vest at the bottom. I like the way it looks both ways!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy wearing a white tee shirt, because I thought it would make me look too busty. I’m also an expert at staining white clothing just by looking at it. However, once I put it on I changed my mind. I love that it has ¾ length sleeves, the V neck is flattering, and it’s sooooo soft! As long as I stay away from spaghetti, I should be okay.
The Covered Perfectly website offers an array of vests, jackets, and tops that will disguise a big belly or large hips. Most of the tops have ¾ length sleeves. I’ve always found that to be the most attractive length for women especially if your arms are a little flabby. Some of the tops flair at the bottom in an A-line or empire style that will cover your tummy without making you look pregnant. Pauline also sells comfortable and stylish dresses and skirts. If you’re looking for a gift, you can purchase a Gift card to send to someone special.
Shipping is free in the U.S. on orders over $47 and returns are free. Plus sizes are available.
I love supporting female entrepreneurs and I hope you do too. I’m thinking of adding some more of Pauline’s adorable cascading vests to my wardrobe. What do you think?
