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.
Arrived today came on time its absolutely beautiful. I have a long torso so its a bit short on me but I dont care I can pull it off. True to size definitely recommend
Purchased this as a gift for my 13 year old daughter for her 13th bday. She said "I want a Moto Jacket". Weighty, soft, no bad smell. We saw the blue version of this Akira jacket like on a TV show and found it online. My daughter was so happy. We had to return it for a new size. The 2x fit her large frame, but she wanted more room, so we are getting a 3x. The 2x fit well, but a little snug. She's a 14/16, but has a belly and larger arms, so she needs a 3x.
This jack is ART. Wearable. It can be worn by ANY AGE. I can see myself at 80 wearing this or my daughter at 13. I actually purchased the blue/teal version in an XL and I'm 50! We are buying a few pink ones next. This is just a beautiful jacket. It looks hand-painted. It looks CUSTOM-made. It looks rich! It will last for a decade. We will add our leather conditioner to protect the art. Its amazing. It's display worthy! Everywhere you look on the jacket is a detail - a small "Ahhh, that's cool".
If you are an artist, you will appreciate all the special touches. You can dress this up or down. Perfect for a jogging suit or casual dress or rock your hottest boots. We are in love and can't wait to make the South Florida folks jealous! We might say where we got it or did I paint this myself (smile! wink). Thank you Akira! Keep the great Moto jacket's coming. This might be my NEW collection. Each one is so different that you really need about 3 to feel complete I think lol!
