5’5” and 140 athletic build. Got a 28 and the jeans fit well. Material is nice and soft and maintains it’s shape. It does have a weird smell out of the box but I hope it’ll wash away. Pockets are shallow as well but otherwise love the jeans. I also did have them hemmed to shorten them an inch. I would buy them again for the fit.
Finally. Jeans not jeggings that fit. Love these. Like the model have 30" belly button but 39.5 bum.... went with the 27 first buttttt the bum was too snug. Sized up to 28 and love. Eventually will buy in every color. Inseam is perfect too (I'm 5'7", 145 lbs 27" waist/waist ... have a bit of Rona lockdown poof. :P). Love love love
So happy to find a jean for athletic fit women! I am a customer for life now!
This was my second pair ordered & love them!
Jeans arrived today and they fit great except I ordered a medium wash and what came was a dark wash. Not even close to advertised photo.Very disappointing as already have dark wash jeans ( different brand)and the only reason I ordered them was to get a lighter wash.waste of shipping fee.
I decided to try out Fran denim as I have always had big thighs and a big booty. Now that I’m in CrossFit I get the ads for athletes clothes and saw these. My measurements were not on the chart so I went with height and weight chart like they suggested (5’3” and 150 pounds, waist is 31 and hips 43) and the 29s fit perfectly. They are super comfortable for jeans too, I can lounge around in these. I can squat and kneel without my booty sticking out which is great for a mom of toddlers. They are pricey, but I’m willing to pay that much if they fit like they claim and are made in America. Very happy with these, will definitely be getting a second pair.
Have been trying to find JEANS not jeggings. Thrilled with these. 5'7", 145, belly button =30, bum =39.5, went with the 28. Can squat & sit comfortably in them. No fear of fanny crack sightings. Inseam is perfect for my height too. Deeelighted. Fit girl problems no more.
These jeans fit me in the hips and thighs AND have no waist gap, even sitting or squatting. The fit is snug but comfortable, and I can still do the splits without any pinching or having to readjust. Love the mid rise and long inseam, since I am proportionally short waisted with long legs. 5'4" 150 lbs size 29
Love the fit would get them in multiple colors
Really like the fit and the color; and long really IS long! Easy to move around in … I’ll be purchasing more!
Love the Melissa shorts I just purchased. I am older (62) and I really love the 5 inch inseam as the 2 and 3 inch are just too short for me. I would love this even more if it had a higher waist - it's not really low - more mid-rise - but I like a higher waist (so thankful when those came back into style). If you offered a high waist, 5 inch short, I would buy instantly!! (Hint, hint - people with athletic builds actually get older, too!) I am 5'6", weigh 140, am very athletically active and purchased a size 30.
Obsessed with these jeans. Such a flattering and perfect fit!
Kay Petite Skinny Dark Wash
My son has European genes and has always been bigger than his friends. He never fit in the pants most guys can wear. Now he is in the gym and no jeans fit until now. One happy Mom
April Super High Rise Skinny Medium Wash
These are my first FD flare jeans and I couldn’t be happier! The fit is as usual ON POINT and they have a perfect higher raise waist. I wish they came in more colors! I definitely recommend. I bought my normal FD size. They stretch out after wearing them one day so I could go down one size for a tighter fit. I am 5’4’’, 145 for reference and wear size 27. The length is perfect!
I am in awe of Fran denim! This is my first purchase trying to find the perfect short for my short body that is not a mom short or a midi!
I lift and have a butt and thighs. 5’2 137lbs and was trying to replace a pair of shorts I have been wearing forever and need to retire cuz of my thighs lol. I got a 28 in these and am in love!!
I’m a CrossFit athlete and I have really large legs and bottom. It has been so hard to find a pair of shorts that actually fit my shape. I’m glad I found these shorts they fit me perfectly.
I have pretty long legs and I love the length of these because they don’t roll up and are just the right length. I also love the fit. These shorts are perfect for anyone with a smaller waist but nice fit legs :)
My initial jeans did not sit well on the zipper and I was able to get a replacement quickly and it was perfect!
My wife loves them. She is 5'8" 140 and ordered size 28.
I purchased these jeans and love them. I am 150lbs, per the size chart it said I needed a 28. I ordered a 27 based on the model size and weight and had to size down to a 26. In Madewell jeans I am a 25/26. These fit great and I have gotten lots of compliments. No gap in the back and my legs fit! They do stretch too
I am a 5 foot, 138 lb woman with a muscular back and shoulders and ordered a medium.. This jacket fits my back and shoulders like a dream, without feeling too large on my otherwise small frame. It has just the right amount of stretch, and pairs well with a anything from a summer dress to my usual altheisure wear!
