FabricFirst 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
SizeSecondly, 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.
CommissionAnd 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) OutfitWhen I received the Flowy Jacket and Simple Tank, I knew I’d pair them with my white jeans!! 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!! 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) OutfitNancy 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!
Click here to shop the Bell Sleeve V Neck TopThis 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! You can see how the sleeve length is just below the elbow, which is part of the idea of being perfectly covered. 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) OutfitI 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!

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!
