I was nervous to buy these without any reviews, but I'm so glad I took a chance on them. As with all my Fran Denim jeans and shorts, these fit perfectly and have no waist gap! For reference, I'm 5'6 and about 140 lbs. I usually wear a small or size 4 bottom, and the size 26 Frans fit perfectly.
Super cute and short, but still provide enough coverage. At 38 years old I am 5 ft 6 and 50 lbs. I purchased the 29 and they are just a tad baggy on the sides. I think a 28 would have fit better, but they are nice and roomy!
Shorts have always been a struggle with bigger thighs and a smaller waist, but these are perfect. They are stretchy and soft with more room in the thighs and no waist gap. I feel sexy in these and I rarely feel that way with shorts.
I love these shorts!! They are so comfortable and fit well in the waist, butt, and thighs. They don’t ride up at all, there’s no gapping, they fit comfortably at the waist, and they held their shape well even after 2 wears.
I am 5’6”, 155# and I have an all over muscular build with thick thighs and a substantial butt, BUT my waist is not significantly smaller than my hips because of my obliques and having 4 kids. I was uncertain of the correct size so I ordered a 28 and a 29 and they both fit really well, but I do prefer the 29 (while my jeans in a 29 are a little too loose all over).
Great fit, soft and comfy, totally worth it.
I’ve finally found the best shorts! They fit perfectly and the stretch makes them very comfy. Best of all, the legs aren’t so tight that the make my quads look like sausages escaping their casings lol. The fit in the quads is perfect. Definitely going to buy more!
I love these! They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. They’re long enough where my cheeks don’t hang out but short enough to give you that cut off jean shorts look. For reference I’m 5’4”, about 140lbs with a short torso and longer legs. I wear a 29 in Fran shorts and a 27 in Fran jeans comfortably. (I had to exchange my first pair for a larger size and found that the 29s fit most comfortably and don’t look too big at all). I’m regularly a 27 in most jeans.
I finally have shorts that fit each my rear end & thighs, without the waist gap! After I ordered the first pair, I have since ordered 2 more shorts and a pair of jeans.
First, I had trouble finding a short that fit my waist and bum. Then I found fran denim.
Then, I had trouble finding a short that covered all of my bum after moving around. Then I found the janyce short!
My only complaint is that the light wash almost has a “dirty” look to the fabric so it’s hard to match with tops.
They are so comfortable... their like sweat pant shorts, but cuter. No gapping at the waist and not digging into my things- best shorts ever.
I’m 5’4” and 150lbs. These shorts are amazing. They have room for my legs, are delightfully soft, and move with me. I love that the 4” inseam covers parts I’m self-conscious about but shows off the parts I’m proud of. Definitely recommend and will buy another pair. ❤️
These are absolute perfection! I’m 5’2 with a lean but athletic build, about 128lbs and ordered a size 25. I wanted a bit of a longer length and with my height these were perfect. Form fitting but so comfortable and definitely have stretch. I’ll be ordering more pairs!
super comfy. 5'6" 180 lbs.
These fit so well! I ordered true to size 28 and they feel great - short where you want them, but not up the crotch. Stretchy but no gapping in back. I even dried them in the dryer and they were 👌
Thank you, Fran Denim!
My shorts fit me perfectly and are super comfy. I am able to wear them all day without any issues.
They fit perfectly in the waist and hips and no waist gap! I just love these shorts and they are so flattering on my body.
I am so happy I found these shorts. I love that I don’t need a belt and they fit in the seat!
I'm 5'5 and 140lbs. These arrived yesterday and they fit! The inseam was not too long for me - it was perfect. I ordered a size 28, my waist fit the measurements for 27 and my hips fit the measurements for 29. No waist gap was the nicest surprise!
Nice to find a pair of shorts that fit thicker thighs and doesn't ride low in the back. Hubby is a fan too.
My favorite so far. Size 29 I’m 5’5” and 155 right now. I have multiple pairs of Fran denim shorts, and these I’ll be buying all the colors! Please make a medium wash & medium destruction!
I’m loving these-the exposed button fly is so cute! Perfect rise, and inseam length. I’m 5’4” 170ish with 31” waist and 44” hip. I ordered a size 29 and they fit like a glove. Great stretch/give in the fabric and they don’t get baggy with wear.
I am 27 years old, weigh 170lbs and im 5' 6" and I have 24" thighs and let me tell you...THESE ARE AMAZING. I have super muscular thighs that are thicker than a bowl of oatmeal and ive ALWAYS struggled to find jeans that don't suffocate my calves and thighs. I am always stuck with the seam embedded into my legs from crotch to ankle with all jeans I wear. but not these! they FIT!! they are comfortable and fit so well. highly recommend anyone with big legs to rock these babies! I will never buy any other brand again!
These are my new favorite shorts. I’m 6’ tall, 170 lbs and I ordered a 29. I usually wear an 8-10.
For reference, I am 5’7, 155 pounds and ordered size 28. About a year ago I started lifting more and working on strength training. I quickly noticed that my normal jeans were getting tight in the leg and leaving that awful gap in the back. I ordered Fran Denim because I needed a pair of jeans that fit to wear to work (casual but I also need to look professional!). The minute I put these on I knew they were the best jeans I’ve ever worn. They fit perfectly and the material is so soft. I wore them to work yesterday and I was so comfortable. Once my size is restocked I will absolutely be buying more!!
I ordered according to website recommendations (28) & had to exchange for a 31, which was fairly easy. Customer service reached out to me, to make sure the 31s would fit all my measurements. I’m Native American & an ice hockey goalie, so the 28s wouldn’t even go on over my 25 inch quads. The 31s fit perfectly! The waist is loose enough to tuck a shirt in comfortably, if I want, but not enough to slide down or gap at all. I got the flares so I don’t know if I’d have a problem with my 16 inch calves in the skinny jeans or not. The denim thickness & the super sturdy zipper are superior to FitJeans (their largest size was tighter than compression leggings & those were a nightmare to return; I had to file an application & wait for it to be approved). I’m 5ft 2, weight 162, with a 30 inch waist & 42 in hips (glutes), for additional reference.
Was looking for a slightly different Jean style than what I already had. These are very cute and fit perfectly
