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.
Fast shipping !! Ordered Friday got it today. I’m wearing it on my birthday 9/28. It’s beautiful, I’m so excited. It’s a different type of material, but I’m adjusting too. Overall it’s a beautiful dress
I hope they bring his back in red. Love it. I’m saving it for next year to wear to an all white affair.
Fits nice and runs true to size. Very stretchy but did not expect the short dress under the tulips. Still a nice dress
Hi I’m having a gender reveal a fancy dinner party I would love to wear this but I would like to know does this dress stretch a lot so I know what size to get
ordered this in black and red and haven't decided which to keep. both are nice but the red one definitely runs a little bigger and I probably could have gotten a smaller size. I will have my seamstress see what she can do (will need it hemmed as well as others have said). I'm 130 lbs and 5'4" and I ordered a medium. u should also know this dress doesn't have a zipper. a little disappointing but the style is definitely a showstopper so I will probably keep it and have 1 added so the top doesn't slide down.
