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 bought this dress for my friend's birthday! I got compliments on the color and how well it looked on my skin. I got it in a small, and it fit just right! The dress is very thick, flowy, and long (I'm 5'4). However, I wore 4 inch heels and that did the trick. The dress is so cute. I cannot wait to wear it again!! Your only issue would be which color to buy this dress in, because I promise you : it will turn some heads!
Attended a birthday party in New Orleans two weeks ago and part of the festivities included participating in a “Second Line” parade through downtown New Orleans. We were asked to wear something bright and festive in color. I purchased the hot pink dress in this style, and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. It was 90 degrees in October so the style of dress (off the shoulders) worked well. I received SO MANY compliments. The dress has a fitted but flexible area through the “mid-section” so it keeps everything “pulled together!” A definite SLAM DUNK with this purchase. I LOVE IT!!!
Such an amazing purchase! I received so many compliments.
Wore this to an event and was called a "golden goddess" (that felt really good). It's super comfortable and the material feels expensive. It looks like I paid a LOT more than I did for this dress. If you're on the fence about it.. just buy it. You will not be disappointed.
