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.
Akira has the most amazing and unique clothing, and the quality is great. Why shop anywhere else.
I love this sweater dress! ❤️
Ok, so this item is actually fairly stunning in person. I purchased this shirt dress in black, and the stones are actually rainbow color reflective not white. This item does have minimal stretch, especially with the corsets on the sides. The dress is meant to fit loose, so I would say it is true to size. If you are tall (5’7 and up) this is going to look like a shirt, but it still looks cute with leggings. I’d give it 4 1/5 stars, simply because the picture makes it seem that you would get diamond/ crystal stones that reflect white and you don’t.
It looks better in person! Fits well. Cant wait to wear it!
This dress is adorable. It kind of looks velvety in the photos, but it’s not. It’s sweatshirt material and has no stretch at all. It looks really cute on but I’m slightly curvy and it just gave me no wiggle room. Unfortunately I had to return it.
