Shopping online can be frustrating when it comes to finding the perfect fitting clothing piece or accessory. At shopAKIRA.com, accurate measurements and fit are important in order for our customer to find the perfect item.
The size charts are general guidelines for average measurements. Sizes will vary depending on designer, cut, style and fabrication. Most of our clothing will fit true to size unless otherwise noted. Our models are on average of 5'9 - 5'10 and wear a size small, size 2 - 4.
Please note that many of the AKIRA labeled dresses lean toward a body conscious fit.

Our tighter-fit AKIRA label dresses tend to run a bit small. Please refer to the below
AKIRA denim comes with stretch. If you are in between sizes and prefer a snug fit, consider sizing down.
Shoe size may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Fit is tested using size 8-8.5 shoe. Recommendations to order smaller or larger shoe will be visible on description (e.g., "runs narrow; order 1/2 size up.")
HOW TO MEASURE SHOE SIZE LENGTH: Place ruler on the ground, perpendicular to the wall, so the '0' is against the wall. In bare feet, step on the ruler, with the back of your heel against the wall. The measurement taken at the longest part of your foot determines your shoe size.
HOW TO MEASURE SHOE SIZE WIDTH: With the ruler in the same position, step with your bare foot onto the ruler - this time with the outside of your foot touching the wall. The measurement taken at the widest part of your foot determines your shoe width.
HOW TO MEASURE HEEL HEIGHT: We measure from a size 8-8.5 shoe and will vary slightly depending on the size you order. The heel is measured up the center back of the heel to where it meets the sole. All measurements are approximate and rounded down to the nearest quarter inch.
Just picked up my in-store order of these heels. When I tell you that I am beyond impressed, girls, this is a hot shoe!!!! The feathers are well placed, the shoe is very well constructed, fit me true to size, I am in love!
These shoes are perfect! They are comfortable and pretty. Material holds and I’ve worn them twice and the feathers still seem full like there hasn’t been shedding
I’m really frustrated with this company because I never even received my shoes. I’ve called and emailed customer service no one ever answers and I have yet to receive a response via email I ordered these shoes at the end of September. Smh so much for wearing them to a wedding.
True to size & look even better in person
I love buying shoes! I have done so all my adult life BUT this was the first shoe that my toes wouldn’t feet in and I don’t wear “wide”. I had to take them to a cobbler (shoe-repairman) and get new straps across the toe area and have them moved down, just to cover up my pinky toes. At first, I thought they sent me the wrong size but it wasn’t. Even if I would’ve returned them for a hair or while size larger, the toe straps would still be a problem.
