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.
This dress is gorgeous. I received compliments all night! The short side is veryyyyy short..dont twirl too much!
I absolutely love this dress. I wore it to my Church Gala and it was loved by everyone. It also was very comfortable. I think I want the red one too... lol
This was a beautiful dress and I wore it to my church Gala!
I wore this to a formal wedding this summer and absolutely stole the show. I got so many compliments! I'm 5'4 150 lbs and a 34DD and a Medium fit perfectly.
So let me start off by saying AKIRA is my fav new online store! I wish it was a storefront here in ATL!
But about the DRESS, I ordered it for a Black Tie wedding and OMG show stopper! I am 5'1 and I thought it was going to be a bit long but no way the heels made up for it. I ordered a small and that fit perfectly, I had to travel with my dress so I ended up bringing a steamer with me which also worked well with the material. I am always in black so I ended up ordering the Lavender one which again was awesome.
