Sure, we want to keep it to a minimum, but we also want to wear clothes that don’t broadcast our tummies. Easier said than done, until charming and clever FOF, Pauline Durban, decided to take the matter into her own hands and design a line of tops called Covered Perfectly.
I wanted to let Pauline tell you herself what makes her pieces so dreamy the moment you slip them on. -Geri Brin

You know that adage, ‘a closet full of nothing to wear’? When I hit fifty, it rang truer than ever. All the sleeves on my tops suddenly became too short to conceal the part of my arms I didn’t especially want to expose, and when they did manage to cover my arms, a too-short body would reveal my tummy! Why was no one designing clothes for me?
When I confided in my friends about the problem, they all shared my discomfort. If you’re reading this now, I suspect you’re having the same challenge!
Everyone assured me that I looked great, but ultimately it came down to how I felt about my own body. I wanted clothes that made me feel beautiful and empowered, but it was impossible to find women’s tops that would do the job.
I was determined not to settle on the dismal styles in the stores. Taking matters into my own hands I began to design a collection of tops made of delicious fabrics, in flattering silhouettes and lovely colors, and of course, featuring pieces that provided perfect coverage.
Simple comfort: Casually elegant, featuring perfect tummy and arm coverage.
Pairs beautifully with jeans or leggings and comes in 4 hues.
I researched numerous fabrics and blends and finally found MicroModal, a natural fabric made from the fiber of the European Beechwood. A breathable textile so soft that you forget it’s even there, MicroModal keeps you cool, and not just when the weather is warm! I had discovered exactly what I wanted!
It also was important to me that my designs be made in the USA, and I’m proud to say they are. My line is cut, sewn and beautifully put together for you in sunny Los Angeles!
One of our most popular styles for its versatility and comfort,
this top is great at the office or at lunch with the girls.
Covered Perfectly launched in May 2013, offering a dozen designs for every occasion, for every time of day and for every month of the year. At 57, I’ve invested in myself, and in my future. Now I can’t wait to get my fabulous tops onto all the real women over 40 who also want to be Covered Perfectly!
Although I started Covered Perfectly to solve my own frustrations, the glowing support I’m getting proves that our tops are answering the prayers of thousands of women with them same dilemma. Try our designs for yourself (and spread the word to your girlfriends)!
