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.
If you are uncertain about a particular style, please contact our customer service team by phone at 1-866-477-2299 during regular hours M-F 9:00AM-6:00PM CST or by email at [email protected]a.com.
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.
I love this two-piece set, plus I can wear the items seperately. I got both pieces on sale and the quality for the price is amazin.. I am very impressed by the Akira line. Compare them to any one of the other popular stores on Instagram (you know who they are) and you will find the quality has them beat hands down, periodt!!! I just found out about them a week ago when I asked a young lady where she purchased a dress. I'm about to be a regular. The sizing on all one of my items is perfect and true to size. I purchased this in a medium. I am 5'5", 140 lbs size 4/6 depending.
I will note that Akira's marketing definitely would never make me stop to shop with them, maybe that's why I've have never heard of them until now. Their instagram and marketing emails show all of the clubby, most trendy wear. However there are a lot of classy pieces. Each piece I purchased is not even close to the images in their marketing.I hope someone takes note of this.
