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].
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.
OMG! I'm in love it's not just great for the beach but it's also perfect for any fest. Love love love.
By no means would I be considered a large woman, but I do have voluptuous areas. I'm 5'5", 34DD, waist 32, hips I guess around 42?.... I bought the large since it was the biggest size available. The romper rode way up in the crotch area (I'll spare you the descriptive visual but it wasn't pretty); the waist of the romper was almost an empire waist on me because the top area ran out of room for my boob so there was no slack left in the material from crotch to shoulder. I only got to one sleeve in before I aborted mission..... Essentially it seems like there is not enough vertical room from shoulder to crotch unless you are very petite or as slim as the model. .... I was disappointed given how pretty the actual garment material and color are. It's a shame it didn't work out. I received it yesterday and it's already on it's way back to Akira.
This romper is totally a must have to your vacation wardrobe! It's lightweight, comfortable, sexy, and the color reminds me of the crisp blue waters of the ocean on a tropical island :)
In love with this romper looks exactly like the picture and is perfect for what I need it for!
