In the age of crop tops and booty shorts shopping for fashionable yet modest clothing may seem impossible. Thanks to innovators like Pauline Durban it’s not only possible but fun too. Pauline created Covered Perfectly (who sent us the top for this posts’ inspiration) after becoming fed up with tops that had arms and torsos that were too short. Being a plus size woman I’ve encountered the same frustrations as Pauline and was elated after trying on the Mandy Print in Orange Snakeskin.
The first thing you notice with tops from Covered Perfectly is the super soft material. I seriously just wanted to snuggle with the top for a while; it is so incredibly soft and touchable. Wearing it is a treat in itself, no kidding.
For me the truest test in a shirts coverage capabilities is the breakfast club sky punch. You know, Judd Nelson fist bumping the clouds; because I do that all of the time. No, seriously – see?
I was thrilled when I didn’t catch a draft on my belly as with so many shirts before this one. I know there are crop tops for plus sizes but it’s just not my thing. My muffin top needs to stay in the box, or in this case, under the shirt. That’s why I am so in love with Covered Perfectly. I can fist bump the clouds, jump up and down maniacally or simply lift my arms (yes, I have boring moments too) and the top stays in place.
The design is flattering without being overwhelming. I adore the colors in the snakeskin print and the gradual fading. SO purdy and flattering. The gorgeous print can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what you’re doing. It’s warm enough for crisp fall weather but completely breathable thanks to the material.
You know what I noticed after washing the top? Nothing different. There was no shrinking and the soft, touchable material stayed just as soft and touchable. I was kind of worried it would be a one hit wonder and after washing it it would shrivel and lose that super soft feel. I’m so thankful I was wrong and so grateful that I have a top that I feel sexy wearing. The only thing I would possibly change is the chest. I’m not blessed in the boobs department so there is a slight sag where my breasts should be. I think anyone even a half cup over a B would find this fit super flattering.
OH, something else that makes this shirt awesome is the fact it doesn’t need to be ironed! That makes it a great top for travelling 🙂 So what are you waiting for?!
