As you walk
through the entertaining shop-packed Mansour Mohamed Street in Zamalek where Home & Beyond, Altay, Fostok and
more shops lie, you will definitely stop and walk into Bonita. Situated beside
its competitor Fostok, Bonita is a cosy, clean and cute pyjama and lingerie store bearing
a small yet nice variety of pyjama sets, loungewear, sportswear, lingerie and
bathrobes and towels.
a relaxing display of different sets at its window and a neatly stacked yet cosy
set up for the merchandise within the store. There are a variety of pyjamas with
cute cartoonish drawings; the unfortunately typical cheesy lines and plain ones
for the simple couch potatoes among you.
The fabrics, however, are great; soft, comfortable and washing machine
friendly – similarly close to the ones you would find at the very cool Pink
Powder Room. They also have comfortable cotton trousers in a variety of colours
that could work for sports or just lounging around at home for approximately
150LE. Plain cotton tops that come in
full, half and sleeveless cuts are also available for 140LE. The pyjama sets may
seem a bit pricy as they come at 339LE in different designs and patterns
(plain, striped, chequered, patterns) but they are definitely worth every penny
for the quality you are getting. If you
feel like going all out, there’s a sexy selection of long silk and lace
nightgowns ranging between 300LE and 325LE. One thing this reviewer liked and
saw that stood out are the very comfortable looking velvety knee length nightgowns
in purple, beige and black for approximately 229LE.
some shops, there’s a corner that spoils the mood which was the cheap looking
selection of lingerie that included a small range in material like the under
tops you would get at Carina ranging between 50LE and 150LE, but we’re sure
some would find that useful! Bonita also
has a lingerie and underwear section that has the plain, cupped cuts that you’d
find in La Senza but for a good price; the whole set is for 150LE. For those
who crave something with a twist, they have bras with coloured studs for 200LE.
There are also patterned and lacy ranges for 150LEto 200LE.
towel sets make for a very practical and thoughtful present and the material is
great. Sets of blues, whites and yellows come in different sizes with the small
one at 50LEand the larger one for 100LE. They also have a nice knee length
bathrobe section in relaxing hues and good quality at 239LE.
forget to pick up a little pouch of wardrobe freshener from their selection (a
mixture of crushed soap and potpourri) at the cashier as they smell great and
are only 29LE!
