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.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I GOT THE BLUE AND GREEN ONE AND IT FITS PERFECT, THE COLORS ARE EXACTLY AS SHOWN IN PICTURE. I WAS CONCERN ABOUT THE LENGTH, BUT I MUST SAY, I AM EXTREMELY SATISFY. IT IS VERY LONG,PERFECT FOR BOTH HIGH HEELS OR FLATS.
I have submitted a comment for the purple dress because i bought this dress in both colors. The green dress is vibrant just like what you see online, so I am really happy with the colors. It's what I was expecting. Where as the purple dress is more earthy tones; not what you see online. Its a beautiful dress, great pleating, very good quality. Has a lot of material on the skirt so you definitely get that flowing movement when you walk. I'm 5'2 and the dress is still to long even when I'm wearing 3 inch heels but I don't care, I love these dresses. The material of the chest part underneath the pleating is stretchy. I've bought all the colors that this came in.
I have purchased all of these off shoulder pleated dresses. I'm 5'2 and the dress is still to long even with 3 inch heels. I still love these dresses. But i was disappointed when I received this dress because it's not vibrant as what you see online and the colors are different. Online you see beautiful purple, pink and a dash of peach. What i received is mauve, light beige, dusty purple, brownish tones and some peach. Otherwise the material is good quality, has good pleating and is sewn well.
