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.
Saw these boots in a sponsored IG Stories add and fell in love. I initially wrote them off cuz I have those good thicc thighs and can rarely wear standard-size thigh-highs, but then I read the reviews from other curvy ladies saying how well these fit! So I caved and ordered; thrilling.
Boots arrived this morning and I just put them on. Initial thoughts: YES! These are IT, no regrets! Very comfortable to walk in, and soles have a good grip on hardwood and vinyl flooring. These make your legs look loooong!
SIZING: I wear a 7.5(W) but usually buy size 8 when it's a high heel; these boots fit true to size and the extra space from sizing up will allow me to add padding/support inside the boot. I am 5'6" ~160lbs and curvy, thigh is 23.5" where the top of the boot hits. The belt sits best on my hips and trying to wear it high-waisted (like the product photo) creates too much pulling for comfort.
I have a few recommendations to improve your boot experience:
- Don't feel obligated to wear these tightly laced. If it feels like they pull on the belt a lot when you walk or sit, try loosening the laces. Keep the laces tightest along the foot/calf and up to the knee, but keep the laces loose from the knee to your thigh.
- When you tug the boots back up (which you'll have to) try to mostly pull on the reinforced areas on either side of the laces, and only a little on the back.
- Boots are unlined; your toes will get sweaty! Wear socks at your own risk cuz you're screwed if they slip off and bunch up.
- The included belt is made from a double layer of the same material (so it's a bit stretchy, not great) and is removable; maybe use your own?!
- Save the packaging and putting everything away proper to preserve the lifespan of these boots since vinyl materials can age poorly when laying against other vinyl.
Shipping was very quick, and the boots were well-packaged! Very very happy with these boots and clearly, I do recommend them. :)
So I ordered these bits and I’m just3 days they were ready for pick up in the store. I opened them and fell out. They were jaw dropping the picture doesn’t do no justice. I just can’t edit to wear them out. Open up world cause here I come
These boots are great, so cute and comfortable! I wear a 8.5 wide, I'm 5ft5in and weigh 190! Boots stretched and fit perfect. I wore them first in the bedroom and attached them to my garter belt! Then to dinner the following day.
These are great!! I love Them!!
I have been wanting to fit in boots like these all my life. And I have to say they are amazing! I'm 220 pounds and have really thick legs and they fit amazing.
