As with so many companies, the idea for Covered Perfectly was born out of necessity. The President and Founder, Pauline Durban, was frustrated by the lack of tops for women that had both sleeves and enough fabric to fully cover her torso, so she designed her own. These tops of micro-modal fabric are made in the USA and are machine washable (lightweight and great for travel too!). Shipping to all 50 states and returns are free.
As mentioned above, I love the softness of this top. I was worried that the fabric might be clingy, but it’s not at all. The one I’m wearing is a limited edition, with an abstract design in blues and greens by Mindy Seeger. Because I’m short, this top fits more like a tunic, but that works for me. The design adds some visual interest, and keeps it from being just another black tee. I’m wearing a Small which was the recommended size for my measurements and the fit is slim but not tight. If you’d prefer a looser fit, you might want to size up, at least for this particular style. The light weight and smooth fit help this top to layer well; it doesn’t bunch up underneath a light jacket.
Covered Perfectly has several different styles and colors of tops available. Pauline was very helpful when it came to choosing the right style for my proportions. There are also designs with clever ruching, collars and cowl necks as well as a basic tee design. I think these tops are priced very well for the fabric and quality.
