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.
This red dress was very form fitting and classy. I loved wearing it!
I can not wait to wear this dress out. It fits so perfect and I'm not too short for it. Please restock all colors. I have black but i neeeeeeeed this in all colors.
Ladies we all need a sweater dress and this would be it. Had to buy all 3 colors fit so nice and will get good use out of them.
I am 5’9” 178 lbs and I purchased a large. Although I wish I would of bought a Medium just for a tighter fit because this dress is super stretchy, otherwise this dress fits great. I will not exchange, the dress is true to size. I purchased both colors for the low low! This dress is made to be worn off the shoulder. If you try to wear it on your shoulders it looks ridiculous. The fabric feels like a thicker quality fabric but still not to heavy. I would recommend this dress.
The dress in white would stand out the best.
