Note from Pauline Durban, founder and president of Covered Perfectly - She features herself as a woman over 50, her stepmom features fashion for women over 60 and her mom represents fashion for women over 70. I love it! I also love that she gives her honest opinion in the review. That's what we ask all of bloggers to do.
Over to Jodie...
I had a reader ask my true opinion about the Covered Perfectly shirts recently. And I can understand that when you see items showcased on a blogger’s site, you may not be sure how well they would work for you or if the blogger is saying nice things just because the company gave them the clothing.
So let me be brutally honest about everything I know about our Covered Perfectly tops! One of the things I like about this company is they are constantly updating their products and trying to keep us older women looking fantastic. Therefore they sent us 3 more products to try out and style for you to check out!
First let me start with the fabric that Covered Perfectly uses for most of their pieces. The material is called MicroModal and it’s used primarily, because it’s super-soft, and breathable, which is important when we are having power surges. I like it because it doesn’t wrinkle so it’s not a clothing item I need to iron, you just hang it to dry. Honestly, it’s really what most of us would consider a t-shirt material with a little sheen. So is it extra special? Maybe not, but it’s what most of us like and are used to for tops! Click here to shop the complete MicroModal collection
Secondly, I’ll tell you that these shirts are sized pretty generously. Therefore if you’re petite like the 3 of us, then you might feel overwhelmed in many of the shirts. Truly, that’s why I ordered this particular shirt for Nancy, below, because of the banding at the bottom. Truthfully, for my body, I wish they had an XS size available. However, I realize not everyone is petite, and the best thing about a shirt that’s too long, is that it can be altered and made shorter. For your convenience, they list detailed measurements of each style. To access these measurements simply click the item, then click the “Size Chart” tab by the description.
And thirdly, they do give commission to us bloggers, if you purchase from one of our links. Is that bad? Truthfully, it’s not something I could make a living off of but, it can certainly help with all of the time it takes to take photos, upload the pictures, write the post, link all of the items all while trying to be entertaining and truthful!!
How was that for brutal honesty? If you are interested in ever purchasing one of their shirts, let me tell you that this is the time to do it. Covered Perfectly is celebrating their 4th year in business and are offering some discounts on certain shirts. Check the bottom of the post for which ones and the code to use!!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit
Since spring is in the air, I figured the white would lighten the outfit nicely, and I tend to reach for my white jeans more than any other in my closet!!
Since I was dealing with a bad hair day, I threw on this hat. The history of this hat is that used to be my mother’s!! Usually I would have worn sandals, but the weather wasn’t quite that warm. Therefore, I grabbed my peep toe booties since I thought they’d match the color of the hat!
I added in a scarf because I wanted to add in a little more color to this neutral palette!! So I grabbed this skinny scarf that my mom had made for me many years ago!
Sometimes I crack myself up trying to figure out different ways to wear an item!! I’m showing you 2 more ways to style this jacket in the video below!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit
Nancy was originally going to pair the Bell Sleeve V Neck Top with her mint green jeans!
But our friend who was over at the time, thought the top looked too dressy with those jeans! So Nancy changed to her white jeans! For some reason, white jeans can look a tad dressier we decided. Besides the white pops the color of the blue shirt so nicely!

This top boasts bell sleeves to add interest to it!
I’m not sure if you know this or not, but sleeves are all the rage right now on the fashion scene. If your sleeves have ruffles, or some kind of detail, then you are in the know!! That’s the other reason I picked this shirt for Nancy. I know she doesn’t have any shirts with fun sleeves, so I thought it’d be a great variation for her wardrobe!
Most of the Covered Perfectly tops have 3/4 length sleeves except for a few long sleeved tops and their tanks & vests. But if you look through their collection, that’s the style you’ll notice the most! If you like having your upper arms covered then this is right up your alley!
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit
I thought my mom might appreciate the Peek-A Boo top because it’s more style forward.
The cutouts up the length of the arm look great on any aged woman! My mom isn’t the hugest fan of the open shoulder shirts, but she actually liked these cut outs on this shirt. The openings give the shirt some ventilation without exposing your entire arm!

Here is a close up of the cut outs on the arm. They have a cute twist between each of the openings and it’s a 3/4 length sleeve just like Nancy’s!
We wanted to keep the focal point on the shirt, but we had to add in a floral scarf! These shirts are a perfect blank canvas for any scarf or fun necklace in your closet!
That is the brutal honest truth about Covered Perfectly styles as I see it! As I always say, everything in life has a pro and a con. Therefore each of us needs to find what will work good for us!
