Let’s talk about the Boxy Top - AND a giveaway!

For those new to our Bedtonic Stories, welcome and happy reading. I’ve mentioned it before, and I will continue to be grateful for the honest feedback we receive from you, our fellow linen lovers. We are listening! It’s what we rely on to improve and evolve our garments, and today we answer some questions about one of our all time best sellers and pieces that has evolved over the years - The Boxy Top. PLUS you have a chance to WIN a Boxy Top in our new and limited edition Tribal print! UPDATE: Thank you all for your incredible feedback and entries below - we have plenty of inspiration for our next drop. A big congratulations to Di Nowinski from Victoria who has won this giveaway!

The new Tribal print Boxy Top

Boxy Origins

After the success of the Poet's tunic, I knew we needed something else in our collection. A lot of our customers dress in larger sizes so I wanted something not too blousy, not too frilly, not too girly. Then I thought, why don’t we just do a really pared back version of the Poet’s Tunic? We took the cuffs off, removed the pockets and made it like a box-shape which is literally what the mid length Poet's tunic is. It was cut shorter so that it could be tucked in with either a French tuck, or worn out loose. It's the perfect example of how a garment evolves here at Bedtonic - none of our pieces are static and are always up for reimagining!

Why is the Boxy Top so popular? (Over 200, five star reviews!)

It’s effortless and easy wear. We get it, shopping for clothes online can be tricky. But the shape and simplicity of structure makes this a safe staple that ANY body can wear. Over time, we've created the Boxy tops in flannel, cotton, organic cotton. We've also done a twill, hemp, a linen/cotton twill (which we sold probably 600 of in one fabric alone!). The Boxy top is the third biggest seller for us now. They truly are a wardrobe staple, an any-season garment you can rely on!


Let's Talk About Sizing

As with most of our garments, the Boxy top was really designed to be a one size fits all. We are size inclusive and our pieces are deliberately oversized (hello comfort, sleeping, gardening and travel!), however, some of you felt a bit swamped in the top and we need to look after our smaller ladies too! We went back to the drawing board and made some adjustments so that the top is now offered in three sizes - S/M, M/L and the L/XL. We love listening to and value your feedback in how our pieces make you feel, so please write your reviews!

What’s to come for the Boxy?

We have the most incredible limited edition print just in for the Boxy Top, the Tribal print. It features watercolour style artwork by a Portuguese artist and the colour way is exquisite, featuring warm and earthy tones for all seasons, but especially tying in nicely with our other warm and rich colour ways this Winter. 


To celebrate the coming season and arrival of our new print, we are giving one of these Boxy beauties away! Simply leave us a comment below telling us what colour you'd like to see the Boxy Top in future and why -  remember we are listening to you! One lucky winner will be randomly chosen and notified here and by email. Giveaway closes Friday 14th June at midnight, AWST
GOOD LUCK! COMPETITION NOW CLOSED - Thank you to everyone who entered and left amazing feedback below - we certainly have so much inspiration for our next drop! 
Congratulations to our winner Di Nowinski from Victoria.

The tribal print or a similar ,& in black & white/ neutral print boxy top , would be fab to add to a travel wardrobe to elevate plain colour bottoms. I travel with the Carry on allowance so linen pieces roll well (yes they do) and are light. I wear jeans and carry black and neutral bottoms with a few tops and one LBD. So a print boxy would work brilliantly over bottoms and to throw over LBD for variations and warmth.

Sage green…
This colour is refreshing, revitalising and brings a touch of nature to your wardrobe. It blends with all the colours and favourites that you already wear 😍

Jodie Blackman

I’ve had my boxy top for ages and it never fails to impress and get wonderful comments.
Ita has stood the test of time and style. Fingers crossed to add to my collection.

Danielle

A bottle green please

sally shapcott

Hi I love your boxy tops and would love to have one in a lighter khaki colour 😊

Jane

A soft pink would be a wonderful addition as it blends with all colours and looks great on all complexions

Helen Macpherson

A cheer poppy red colour. I am about to have my third surgery in 18 months and love my mustard colour pants, a poppy colour top would be a great companion piece.

Krista kelegouris

I like the top. The sleeves are the right length. The colours suit my colouring and will be able to go with my pants and skirts. I Can even put a jacket over the shirt ; if its a bit cooler ; or if I need to be more dressy.

Philippa Angel

Simple yet oh so flattering.

Anne Marie Marriott

Light/faded denim blue colour – it goes with everything – just like the boxy top!

Natasha

I love all the colours. A print of some sort maybe in summer colours? It could be paired with 1 of your amazing skirts.

Sue

Love ur product , boxy top in soft bery pale caramel would be a perfect item for a wardrobe essential , it could be worked back with a muktitude of colored or printed bottoms

Antonia Frew

I would love to see this in a fuschia pink / magenta colour – something bright and happy for winter. Not that I am a fashionista – just someone who likes vibrant colours!

Kate Hartill

Chartreuse is my ultimate lush hue! It emanates earthy vitality and evokes a rich connection to Nature. I would be delighted to wear a chartreuse boxy top anytime, anywhere!

kym

Love my top, so comfortable and can wear with anything

Jennifer Kerr

Hi there, I love all the prints you have done. So another print. In greens would be nice. Or indigenous print. Thanks, Christina

Christina Wilson

I would love to see the boxy top in a Jacaranda blue!

Lena Bentley

I think the Boxy would be great in the Chambray. I still have my long Poets Tunic in that colour, I wear it so often and always get really lovely comments!

Jodie Chin

It would have to be duck egg blue. Its is a soft but beautiful colour, very stylish and never dates. I have a couple in my wardrobe already but another in the boxy style would be amazing.

Patricia Runge

I’d like to see a beautiful deep plum color or a mauve.

Sharni Crossett

I would love to see light pink (blush colour) in the boxy top. This colour for me can be a mix and match for so many colour waves in the wardrobe. Black navy Forrest green pinks purples white. A summer or winter choice. As you can see I love light pink.
Happy decision making.

Angela

I would like to see a plum colour as plum is a rich winter colour that suits most skin tones.

Karamia Galiere

I love my boxy tops! So versatile, practical & looks great. Would love black, navy or green.

Annie

A cool Chocolate tone. Timeless and a warm natural colour that won’t date . When spending money on linen I usually go with a safe colour due to the price so it will be timeless.

Connie Luders

This is the most versatile top. I have the white and it’s my go to throw on. Because of the fabric they may be thrown on but they look put together. Have my eyes on the Ruby and the blue next! Thank you.

Sally

Either soft blue or some blue and white stripes would be my choice!

Thanks

Annie

Annie

I would love to see the Boxy Top in a gorgeous apple green to represent the fresh crispness of winter. The crunch of biting in to a granny smith or walking through green grass. Apple green inspires hopefulness and new beginnings.

Julie Palmer

Would love to see the boxy in a metallic! Not sure if you can do that with linen but a solid silver or a flecked gold one would be stunning. Boxy’s are the best ❤️

Mardi

I think a light denim blue would be a popular colour for the next boxy top.

Bettina Almond

Love the boxy top! I have white but would adore charcoal, or black…and a dusty soft green!

Vanessa Masters

I love plain simple timeless shapes. This top is perfect especially now it comes in smaller sizes. thank you.

Sue Cooney

The boxy top is so simple and gorgeous. I’d love to see it in a rich lavender which would complement the other Bed Tonic clothing colours, especially olive, ink, and white. Love my growing Bed Tonic collection!

Jen

Love the new print but being a bit of a classic girl, have a preference for the plain colours. My dream would be a gorgeous moss green, a flattering colour for all ages, shapes and sizes and beautiful to wear both night and day.

Joan

This tribal print is a good addition. I feel that so many tops for mature women are often too flowery and make everyone seem much older especially once they start adding lilac tones.
This colour palette would suit many.
The sad part for me is that I’m a 6-8 very petite so even the s/m would swamp me.
Keep doing what you do though it’s great quality

Kind regards

Di

Diane Alldis

I absolutely love this design. I am dressed by Bedtonic nearly every day with 3 x poets tunics, 1 x boxy and 4 x slouch pants. Would Lov an addition to my treasured collection.
A suggestion I would like to offer being an Australian company – how about a design by one of our wonderful indigenous artists?
Thanks for dressing me! Xx

Sue

Absolutely love the print one. After having a double mastectomy plain prints v necks are not the way to go. The print one and the neckline are on point for me and what I need and feel good in

Janey Muir-Smith

I would love the Boxy top in a washed denim blue colour, would be lovely on Summer

jenine keys

I’d love a black one – it is the one colour I fall back onto a lot as it goes with everything and for every occasion

Nele Johnson

I’d love to see a floral print. The florals from the past have been absolutely stunning and the Boxy Top would be the perfect for a gorgeous floral.
I love my Boxy Top and my Poets Tunics; they comfortable, stylish and well made.

Jaimie Coulton

I don’t own a boxy but I think a moss green might be nice

Vivienne Gardiner

I love the Boxy top. I’d love to see it in a blue/green version of the tribal print – something that reflects WA’s magnificent coast and ocean.

Rachel Beadle

I would love to see this top in a deep forest green.Such a lovely colour for this simple and elegant boxy top!

Julianne GIBBS

Green! Forest or sage.
Have an original check and love it but looking forward to trying the new sizing.

Chiara

Denim or chambray to wear with denim or white

Horizontal stripes like a Breton top

White or black always

Imogen

I would love to see it in a soft pink. Pink is very feminine and I’m finding it hard to find fashionable clothes in pink.

Anita Wyndham

Cream or white would be amazing! I have several of the tops, but often think white/cream would also look amazing with my bedtonic pants, a pair of jeans, skirt etc!! So versatile. :)
