Note from Pauline Durban, Founder and President of Covered Perfectly - When we first got started, Geri from fabover50.com really helped put us on the map by promoting us to her followers. This was the first posts she did. I'm happy to say that we became great friends and I love her. We go to dinner whenever she visits from New York. I can't get enough of her.
Now over to Geri...
When Pauline Durban emailed to ask us to help promote the tops she designed, especially for Fab Over Fifties (FOF), I looked at the selection on her site and thought their easy looks would appeal to lots of women. After turning FOF seven years ago, Pauline was frustrated trying to find tops that were suitable for her changing body, so she finally decided to make them herself. She calls her line Covered Perfectly.
Supporting women entrepreneurs whenever I can, I ordered a couple of tops (a woman can never have too many tops, anyway.) When Pauline noticed my orders, she sent a third top as a gift, since she wanted me to take advantage of her "Buy 2 get your 3rd Free" promotion.
That was about three weeks ago and I’ve been living in my tops (I even slept in one of them since I was too lazy to take it off.) They glide over my body, rather than hugging it, and minimize my midriff bulge and tummy, which was Pauline’s design mission in the first place. The three-quarter length sleeves flatter my arms. Made of a fabric called MicroModal, the pieces are wonderfully soft and comfortable, but still look smart, not sloppy. Click here to view the complete MicroModal collection.
I’ve read some FOF comments on Facebook, since we started promoting the tops, which question why Pauline’s models don’t look like they have much to hide. I can promise you that I do have much to hide and the tops really do hide it. Unlike oversized tops with no shape, that actually make us look larger than we are, Covered Perfectly tops have a shape and look feminine.
My tops go with just about everything, from jeans to leggings, and they can be dressed up or down. Their clean-lined styles make them perfect attire for sitting at the computer all day, but they look great for a dinner out. Pauline has chosen a fairly neutral palette, assuring that her tops fit into most everyone’s wardrobe, and she’s introducing some hot colors in her fall line, including red, my personal favorite. I’ve washed all three of my Covered Perfectly tops and they’ve maintained their shape and softness.
Pauline’s prices are reasonable, even more so since she’s offering my FOFriends 20% OFF on up to two items! Use the discount code FOF20 when you check out at Covered Perfectly.
