BENJAMINA BUTTON SHORT SLEEVE
Let's reinvent the button up! Let's do it with one of our faves, a fabric that's ultra lightweight, slightly stretchy, never wrinkles, and comes out of the wash flawless (thank you Breeze Woven). Then let's give it some business time style, with a classic collar, custom Oiselle buttons, and a relaxed, just-slightly-cropped fit. Last but not least, our signature prints of the season, created by renowned illustrator Marisol Ortega.
- Breeze Woven fabric (polyester / spandex)
- button down front
- two front chest pockets
- 22.5" body length (size 4)
I sheepishly purchased the benjamina sleeveless and fell in love with it immediately after putting it on. The fabric is silky and light, perfect for the summer time. I went back and purchased every print. The sleeves are nice and not restrictive. I have run in this shirt and it preformed beautifully. I typically wear a size 6 in flyout and a size 4 in flowy O tops and the 4 fit well.
I love this shirt! I love this style of shirt and really hoped it would fit well. I am between a 2 and 4 (120 lb, 5'4", athletic) and sized down to a 2 for a smaller fit. I was worried the arm holes would be too small but it fits perfectly. I'm glad I sized down. The patterns look even better in person. It's just the boyish style I was looking for. Might get in all three patterns...
I am usually around a size 2 and the size 2 fits perfectly. I LOVE the lightness and smoothness of the fabric. I haven’t tested it in hot weather yet but it feels like it will breathe well. The fit is loose and slightly cropped. Please make more in solid colors!
Very soft, cute shirt with a nice drape. I’m usually an 8-10 and the 10 is about right, though I may add a snap between a couple of the chest buttons. The lemon print is pretty and it feels like the fabric will be breathable. The background color almost seems like a very light mint rather than white.
I've always struggled to find a button down top that doesn't fit too tightly in the chest. If I find one that fits my chest, the top ends up being too loose everywhere else.
I typically wear size 12/14 in Oiselle tops, and I am a DDD cup. The Benjamina Short Sleeve in size 12 fits great - not too tight in the chest, and also fits nicely throughout the rest of the body. The breeze woven fabric is fantastic, too.
