Welcome and thank you for your interest in Covered Perfectly.
My name is Pauline Durban. I’m originally from England and moved to America in 1992. I am the proud founder of Covered Perfectly, a company whose purpose is provide flattering, comfortable clothing for women over 40.
This is my story…
You know that feeling… you are going through your closet, trying desperately to find something to wear? That was me and I was becoming more and more frustrated.
The sleeves on my tops were too short to cover “that” part of my arms. Of the few tops that did cover my arms, they didn’t cover my tummy!
I wanted to wear something that made me feel attractive, and confident that I was showing the best parts of me. However, finding the right women’s tops was becoming a huge challenge.
Instead of settling for the limited women’s fashion available for women of a certain age, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and Covered Perfectly was born. An online clothing store, dedicated to fashion for women over 50, women over 60 and beyond!
In May 2012, at the age of 56, I invested my life savings into Covered Perfectly and began designing women’s fashion, focusing on super-soft fabrics that feel great against your skin and cover all the right parts: perfectly! I chose MicroModal as the staple fabric, it's super-soft, luxurious and oh so comfortable. It's also breathable, which is important when we are having power surges. You will love it!
Was it scary? You bet it was! As a single woman, I had no one to fall back on. I went through all the “what ifs”. What if I’m wrong? What if no one likes them? What if no one buys them? They went on and on!
Covered Perfectly was launched May 5th 2013 and I’m happy to report that women of all ages, shapes and sizes love them and have welcomed the concept with open arms.
Every week we receive emails from customers, raving about their tops and the excellent customer service. Some have even sent pictures. You can see them on the “Customer Gallery”.
I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way, who have helped me get the word out. You can meet some of them on the “Product Review” page.
Another thing that was important to me was to use age appropriate models, we don’t want to see the clothes on 20 something girls.
The line started with tops… now you will also find dresses, skirts and much more. Be sure to check out the Complete Collection.
Blessed doesn’t even come close to how I feel!
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
P.S. All the tops are made in the US. We even offer FREE shipping on orders over $47 in the US. Returns are always free in the US. Plus, worldwide shipping is also available.
P.P.S. We started with women over 50 however: I had a lot of younger women contact me (over 40) so we included you too...whatever age you are, there's a top for you.
