Basics should be exceptional - after all, they're what we wear most often. The Bonita Short Sleeve Tee begins with our renowned blend of Tencel®, organic cotton and a hint of stretchy spandex. Next we added raglan sleeves and double-layer bodice with empire waist designed to flatter. And to seal the deal we created a color palette that harmonizes with any wardrobe. Muy bonita!
- Stretch movement
- OEKO-TEX 100
- Raglan sleeves
- Flat piping detail
- Double-layer front bodice
You should never have to settle. That's why we created our exclusive Samba fabric: An all—star blend of eco—friendly fibers that breathes well, has a great drape, good stretch and unparalleled resilience. A slight slub adds texture and dimension, giving it more sway in its step than conventional jersey. Look good, feel good.
Care Instructions: Machine wash cold, tumble dry low. See garment tags for additional details.

Ratings & Reviews
Very nice top, great style. However, I bought a small which is my usual size and I have to return. Hopefully the medium will fit and not be any longer because if it is it will be too long.
Okay, I didn't keep
Best of the tops I tried, but I didn't keep it, it was not super flattering to my figure.
Well made, great fit!
I am 5'6 and 135 lbs with a small waist
Not a good fit
I wanted to like this top. The fabric feels nice and I love the yolk which adds interest to the tee. However, the overall shape of this top was tent-like and not fitted around the hips as pictured. Not a good look for me, I like a more form-fitting top. Sending it back.
By: Toad & CoDate: 7/28/2017Hi there, thanks for the review! Sorry to hear the Bonita was not a great fit for you, but if you liked the feel of our Samba Fabric, you might want to try the Marley SS Tee: https://www.toadandco.com/womens/tops-tees/marley-ss-tee/t1012122/362/
Comfortable, packable, not smelly
I wore two of these through 5 weeks in Italy and Portugal. They were great for traveling because they kept the body odor down, dried quickly after hand-washing, and didn't show wrinkles from being packed tightly in carry-on luggage. I was so sad when I ripped one on something sharp and then was down to one shirt, so I'm delighted to find that Toad and Co still carries them. Don't mess with perfection.
Better for smaller busts?
I’m a 36c to 38c with a 32-33 inch “wearing waist” and the medium fit nicely in the waist but was too tight up top. A large would have created the tent like effect another reviewer mentioned. However, I was delighted that the Marley tee ina M fits wonderfully and flatters my curves in a good way, not too thin or too tight.
Love this top
5'8", 138lbs, short waisted 30", narrow hips 37", and busty (34 D). Bought size Medium. I love the drape and fit of this top. I usually buy black tops to minimize my bust but loved the fit of this top so much I bought it in white after trying the black. And I love the white too!
My new go to!
Wore this top right out of the box. It was one of the pieces I wasn't sure how I would like because of the seam under the chest (or what they call a double-layer bodice with empire waist). I'm here to say this now one of my favorite basic tops and I will be buying more. While the top is basic it is also easy to dress up. The double-layer bodice with empire waist is a nice detail that opens the shirt up so that it isn't sticking to you. It is a moisture-wicking top, I bought the black and wore it outside in the sun on a 90 degree day and I wasn't roasting in it nor did it smell when I came home. I'm 5ft 1in and 110lbs, I bought the XS and it fits perfectly.
Perfect for me
The cut of this tee may not be for everyone, but for a 40-something female it works great. Now if I could just get it in black, I'd be all set. Make more in black please, size medium.
Comfortable, slightly relaxed tee on a hard to fit woman
Ordered the Bonita tee blueberry color, sz small. I am 5'2 about 135 lbs. Weight changes due to health issues. I have a very hard time getting a good fit for my shape and frame. Somewhere between a pear and an hourglass, small cup size. Shirts usually dig in too tight at the arm pits or sleeves are just too tight. I am usually more of med or lg. depending on cut. Bonita small is comfortable and flattering. I like the longer length despite being short! Material is very comfortable even in higher humidity and heat. Texture and seamwork is very comfortable against the skin. Love it-plan to order other colors. Great everyday piece that could flatter a variety of bodies, just pay attention to specs and size guide.
Do not put in dryer even with low heat
I recently got this T-shirt and loved the fit and feel. However, the label said that it can be machine washed and dried on low. I ALWAYS wash my clothes with cold water and did put it in the dryer on low. Big mistake! It shrunk about 3/4 of a size. I can still wear it but I normally like my T-shirts slightly on the looser side (which it was before I washed and dried it) and now it is definitely more fitted and shorter in length. This is disappointing especially for a T-shirt of this price. So please if you like the fit DO NOT put in dryer. HANG to DRY to keep the initial sizing.
Bonita SS Tee
I love this shirt and have several of them. They fit, pack and wear so nicely.
Poor Fabric Quality
By: Lori Erickson
I bought two of these t-shirts last summer and both shirts have developed small holes in the fabric in multiple places. I'm disappointed, as I love the fit and look of these shirts. But the fact that this has happened in two shirts makes me think it's a flaw in the manufacturing rather than something I did. Given the price of these shirts, they should last for more than one season!
By: Toad & CoHi Lori - Thanks for sharing your experience with us. We are reaching out to you separately to make this right! Definitely sounds like a defective fabric.
Bonita short sleeve tee
Absolute perfection in every way....Style - fit - fabric color selection. Love this tee and hope they never stop making it
