These pants are well structured with stretch. I'm 5'3, 185lbs, 32" waist, 51" hips and each thigh is 30". I ordered the 32". They fit my butt and thighs exceptionally well. They were gapping in the waist like every pair of pants do, but you could see my butt crack so that was an immediate no for me lol. I also felt like they were more of a straight leg in the calf/ankle area... and not a skinny at all. I wanted to love them. My thighs were accommodated in a pair of jeans for the first time in YEARS. I'll try another fit next.
I'm 5'6" and 130-135 lbs. Despite the fact that apparently it's the pop culture aim to have an "itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face" -- jeans are NOT made for thin girls with big butts. I bought these on a whim — my other jeans are getting old, and autumn is here, and I just thought, "why not try this brand I've never heard of?" They arrived quickly, and once I slipped the 27s on, and it was pure joy. I couldn't believe it. They're COMFORTABLE. I never felt this way about jeans before. Anytime I'd get something that was comfortable in my hips, they'd slide down my waist. Anytime I'd get something that fit my waist, my thighs felt like they were on fire. These exist!
The best part? I now get to give away my mediocre-fitting jeans -- which gives me a heck a lot room in my pants drawer!
These jeans are awesome! I have a short, narrow waist and bigger hips and thighs and jeans slide ride down or are uncomfortably tight in the waist to keep them on…Fran Jeans fit amazing and feel good on and stay up perfectly!!
I ordered the April Super High Rise in a medium wash, size 28 and they are the most comfortable jeans I own, though I felt like they were a tad too loose around the waist. Thus, when I ordered a second pair on the Dark Wash, I went with a size 27. I can get them over the hips and zipped, but they're definitely on the tighter side! I love the way they look and the fit is almost perfect on a low-carb, bloat-free day. I've kept them as my "goal pants" in hopes that they become a more appropriate fit in the next month or so. I'm not sure if the sizing varies between washes or if I truly am just in between sizes.

I have large legs and a small waist. These jeans are so comfortable and no tugging on the waist all day! They feel good and look even better! So glad I tried them. Worth every penny. I wear an 11-12 and ordered a 29! Perfect fit!
Ordered a size 27.
I measured between a 27 and 28 so I opted to size down, and I love them.
So these arrived on leg day, all inflamed and at my most bloated... and they fit. After wearing them all day today, they fit even better.
No more adjusting the waist every 30 seconds. They dont bunch and slide off my ass when I bend over. Theres ROOM for my butt and thighs?! And I dont mean to be dramatic... but the waist hugs so perfectly. In a way I have never felt. Secure, snug but not uncomfortable.... and girl, I had like 4 huge sushi rolls right before this picture.
The one thing I'll point out is at almost 5'8, this rise sits different- significantly lower- compared to the model. I actually picked this super high rise vs. regular high rise because this one is made in America, but this one likely fits me better anyway. With the exception that it may irritate my belly button ring after awhile.
Super happy. Going to order another style now.
The jeans are a perfect fit for my daughter’s athletic build. Thank you, Fran Denim!!!
I’m 5’9” with a 29” waist and 42” hips and ordered a size 28. I was surprised by how well these fit. I had about a 2 second worry they wouldn’t go up but they slid on and zipped easy peasy. I may be able to get away with a 27 but I kind of like the extra room. I love how they look and while I never thought I could use “jeans” and “comfortable” in the same sentence, MY GOD THESE JEANS ARE ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I can bend, lounge, move and am not constantly having to pull them up to make sure my butt hasn’t fallen out. Total win. Will be buying more pairs in different washes.
I am 5’ 7” 180lbs @ ~12% body fat. Size 31/31. I have issues finding jeans that will fit over my thighs and glutes. These things are amazing. They go on snug, but within 15 minutes they have loosened in all the right spots.
My son is big. He’s carrying a lot of extra weight but he’s very muscular too. He says these are the best fitting jeans he’s ever tried on. They fit his big ass and legs with room to move.
Regret not buying them when I first heard of them over a year ago, 5'10, 90 kilos, size 36.
Jeans have always been really restricting on me and I've hated wearing them for that reason, the way these stretch and allow movement is awesome, will definitely buy more.
Best pair of jeans I own
I purchased the 32 / 31" pair and they fit great. No hemming required. I am 5'11, 210 lbs, 26" thighs. They are a little bit form fitting but that is to be expected when you have squatters legs.
The dark color looks fantastic for casual office environments. Pockets are deep enough for a medium sized phone.
Love the fit. Love the color.
These jeans fit great and I wear them all the time. I'm 5'4", 140 and I bought the 28s. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and came back to try some shorts! Still patiently waiting for those to arrive ☺️
April Super High Rise Acid Wash
I love these jeans and the way they fit. Will definitely buy again
Super comfortable! The waist is high enough that these don’t slip down like other athletic jeans. They fit well without feeling too tight in the legs. I was worried the 31 would be too big but the size chart was accurate. I went by weight and height (I’m 5’5 170) and the fit is perfect for me. I will be buying more!
