Sizes & Fitting
Ines Schneider designs at least three different prints every year, and there are several colour options for each of these prints. These designs are then printed in Italy on top quality fabrics by one of the best printers in Europe. Every year there are the three classic W.E.T. at Ines fabrics: Nair (Vertigo), Superbiflex and Cottonstretch. In addition, there is always a small special edition made of e.g. silk or, as in 2019 for the first time, batiste.
Vertigo, the label's initial material, is a high-quality, sporty, knitted jersey fabric from the swimwear sector. This material is a little more compact than, for example, Superbiflex; very elastic and soft and therefore particularly figure and curve-shaping. The models from Vertigo are cut to size and are particularly appreciated by sporty, active customers. Even women without a uniform size will find their favorite piece here. Because it is absolutely crease-free, Vertigo is also a perfect travel material / 'suitcase dress'. The fit is figure-shaping to relaxed, body-hugging S-XL (sometimes up to XXL).
Superbiflex is our "all time classic". The ultra-light, bi-elastic Merylware was originally developed for high-performance sport, so it is both breathable and super easy to care for - 'wash and go'. The ultimate travel companion (suitcase dress), but also the perfect clothing for everyday life, work, for mothers with small children, on the bike and with the right accessories for the big show ... Even a hot summer or a night of dancing can be enjoyed in full splendour in Superbiflex! The fit is 'on figure' to relaxed body-hugging S-XXL. Attention: in Superbiflex the color tones are a little more "desaturated" than in the other fabric qualities - this should be combined within the material.
Cottonstretch is the ideal material for the mid-season due to its noble composition and the high cotton content and can be worn in the office as well as casually elegant and in leisure time. The proportion of polyamide and elastane allows the models or the material (and thus also the wearer) to relax while they are being worn ;-) After the 30 ° wash, this very high-quality material returns to its original shape. Particularly popular are the trouser cuts that do not require a zipper and can be easily combined with the various tops in CO and BA and partly VE. The fit is relaxed around the body S-XXL. The print colors of cotton stretch go perfectly with cotton batiste and mostly also with vertigo.
Batiste particularly appeals to trend-oriented customers who want to wear natural materials even in very high temperatures. The small amount of elastane provides additional comfort. This fabric gets a fine fine crease when worn, but it is far below that of a linen fabric. Anyone who suffers from the high summer heat will love batiste and the cuts, which are mostly made to "moderate loose-fit". The wearing comfort is incomparably light and comfortable and is described by our customers as "like naked, just dressed". This also justifies the slightly higher price. The fit is relaxed to loose-fit, body-hugging S-XL (sometimes up to XXL).
Please refer to our size table to find your right size. But also note the descriptions of the individual items, as we often provide more precise information about the respective fit. If you are unsure, please send us an email with your questions.
The prints are different in color on the different materials. Unfortunately, this cannot be completely avoided, as different fabrics naturally absorb color differently. Therefore not every part can be combined with all others in the same print (e.g. skirt & top). So it is better to stay in the same fabric quality for suits or choose a plain piece.
Tips for taking measures:
Measure close to the body. The tape measure should neither be loose nor cutting in. Please measure the circumference of the bottom at the widest point. Body size means the height of the body, i.e. standing straight from head to floor.
