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 coat is so beautiful. Right out of a fashion show. It's comfortable and very warm. My wife loves it and she gets lots of compliments, and lot of questions on where she got it.
I was hoping to love this coat but as soon as I tried it on, it gave me the feel of a luxurious bathrobe. It is a weighty coat though which is a plus for colder climates. I should have ordered a size down...I'm not satisfied with the length of the belt so I will be returning it :(
I ordered this coat for my winter wedding last minute because the white coat I ordered from JCrew was delayed. I am so happy I did because I absolutely fell in love with this coat! It is both glam and warm! It has a coat tie belt made out of the same faux fur material that you can't see in the picture. Since then, I've actually worn it without clothes underneath to surprise my new husband and nearly gave him a heart attack. I'm sure he definitely recommends this coat as do I.
I went back and forth between pretty little thing and Akita when I was looking for a faux fur. I chose this one because of the pure white color and red interior and it definitely did not disappoint! The coat is heavy and very soft resembling a true mink! I absolutely LOVE it
This coat is way too big but the sleeves are way too short. I am 5 11. I ordered a L. This coat is very unflattering to a woman’s physique. It makes me look like a Box. It’s heavy and it REALLY looks like a robe in person and I don’t like that.
