Goodbye but not Farewell ...
As a result of the Brexit, Pro-Idee is temporarily closing its UK online shop (www.proidee.co.uk) until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience. Everything you might want to know about the situation is to be found in the FAQs below. It will surely help you navigate through this change and answer the most frequent questions you might ask yourself regarding ordering, shipping, delivering and many other areas which are impacted by the closing of our online shop. As we remain committed to curating a unique selection of high quality products, we invite you to continue shopping in our German, French, Dutch, Austrian or Swiss online shop if you wish to have your order delivered to an address outside the UK. We thank you for the continuous support throughout the years and we hope to be able to reopen our UK online shop in the near future.
Why is it no longer possible to order from the UK?
Pro-Idee brings your orders in from the Continent. Due to the new import regulations in connection with Brexit, we are currently unable to make deliveries. We very much hope to be able to supply the UK market again shortly. Please visit our website from time to time for news.
What is the ultimate date for my order?
Unfortunately we do not accept any more orders for deliveries to the UK at the moment. Any possible backorder has been cancelled. Should you have made any payments, these have been refunded. For orders with delivery addresses outside the UK, please visit any of our other Pro-Idee websites: www.proidee.de, www.proidee.fr, www.proidee.nl, www.proidee.at or www.proidee.ch. We will be happy to accept and carry out your orders!

How do I order a catalogue?
We do no longer print paper catalogues. Please discover our current online catalogues free of charge in the Catalogue section.
Why does Pro-Idee use shrink wrap instead of paper when sending their catalogues?
We used recyclability as the basis for choosing a packaging film. In fact, although perhaps not recognisable at first glance, this material has environmental benefits:
- Our films are made of polypropylene, a fossil-based plastic. This means that it is mostly made from natural gas which makes polypropylene one of the most resource-efficient standard plastics available.
- Unlike polyester, polypropylene has little impact on the environment as it consists exclusively of carbon and hydrogen. It pollutes the environment even less than paper. For the production of a single A4 sheet of paper you need for instance 10 litres of water.
- Polypropylene is – in line with EC directives – not harmful to your health. For example, there are no heavy metals and plasticisers included.
- Polypropylene – unlike polyester – can be optimally recycled. By means of near-field infrared technology in the sorting plants, this substance is separated from other materials and can thus achieve 98% purity. This, in turn, produces twice the calorific value on incineration in the waste incinerator as it does when burning paper. This ultimately saves fossil resources.

The perfect size
The perfect size
Please finde our size chart here
All order size on our online shop are based on this Fashion Classics size chart which in turn complies with official size charts. Once you have taken your body measurements and found your size in the Fashion Classics size chart, you can always order this same “order size” and be almost certain that it will fit. Just remember your “order size”.
In our product description we sometimes give you another size in addition to the order size – especially if the manufacturer´s goods are sized based on a different chart than ours. We refer to this size as the “Manufacturer´s size”. This is especially advantageous if you are already familiar with the sizing of a particular manufacturer.
