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.
I just got them a few days ago. How ever I have just only tried them on. I really like the material of pants because you can wear them in the Cold weather. How ever I order a medium they are like if you put two of your fingers on both sizes of the pants. You can tell they are definitely to bit and especially in the crouch area they looked big. So I am going to take them into the store and get a small. Then I will come back for another review. Also this is my first time ever ordering online as well as going into the Store. I will say this it’s better to purchased in store then Online. The reason why I say that is because your being charged a $7.95 fee if you used the label they send you. Even though I read some of the reviews as first and I thought I needed a medium. I am 5 feet 4 and I weight 140 lbs! So I am doing a 3 star because I have to take them back to the store because they will not whole items for you. However it depends on the Store and the Manager as well because some stores will hold items for you.
