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.
Do not purchase these unless you want to waste your money. I purchased two pairs of these joggers a few months ago for an upcoming trip (Japan) that I had. I wore them as my airport/airplane outfit. To my surprise when I arrived at my destination there was a huge hole in the rear area. I am normally a XS/small but I ordered a medium. For an item to rip just sitting in an airplane seat it totally unacceptable. I contacted the company concerning the issue and never heard back. Now I have joggers that are basically ripped to shreds and another pair that I refuse to wear as I am afraid the same thing will happen. Good thing I am an over packer and had an extra outfit for the trip home
I complained before that I ordered an extra large and what was sent to me was a large with an extra large tag on it but when I try the outfit on it seem to fit well enough for me to wear to my event. I had to edit at an event and did a lot of walking back-and-forth between Hotel and convention Center and by the end of the night my pants were literally ripping at the seams between the legs and there was a huge hole in the rear. The outfit was expensive but it was super cute and I got many compliments but I was extremely disappointed at the lack of quality for that price. I am a faithful customer to Akira I love the fashion but you guys have to do better with your plus size selection and quality. If you truly represent all sizes then represent! I will give Akiba another shot but wanted to let buyers know if you are size 12 and up be leery of your purchase.
These joggers are really cute depending on the look you want determines which size to buy large fits nice went the XL for a baggy fit.
You can be super comfy while looking glamorous at the same time! A must have!
They were beautiful.. so I bought them for a special occasion didn't know where I was going but I knew they would eventually be worn.. took me a few months to wear them but occasion finally arrived this past Saturday I wore my 45-50 dollar pair of joggers only to wear them one time.. I got a medium nice fit not too tight almost thought I should have gotten a small for a sexier tighter fit. GLAD I DIDN'T.. I dropped my phone on the floor bent down to pick them up and my joggers split.. HOW ANGRY AND EMBARRASSED I WAS for such an event I attended.. spending that much money on a pair of joggers you would think the material would be made better. If I wasn't past the store policy of taking these back I would've been at that store the next day.. Im so angry because im an Akira alumni I shop there all the time for years since they opened the Girls/guys know me by name when I walk in. I brag about Akira all the time. I am so very much disappointed in this purchase.. I would like a refund or a brand new pair cuz the outfit was so amazing but the material of that pair was defective.. If I decide to get another pair I will take it and have it reinforced so that doesn't happen again. This is sad please be careful of purchasing this item make sure there are no thin spots in the material before taking it to the counter for purchase
