Welp, these jeans ruined all other jeans for me. I was wary of these because unfortunately, I'm not a fitness model. I'm tall with a big ass and all jeans, high rise or not have a tendency to slide down and show off that crack. These passed the test! And they look damn good too. I can't wait to see if the shorts work as well.
Love my jeans!! They fit great, are comfortable and I'm super excited that there's no back gap! I'm 5'4, 130lbs with an athlete build and size 27 fit perfect. I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks Fran Denim!!!
I will never buy another pair of jeans again!!! Im 33 years old just about 5’8” 149lbs ive been doing crossfit for 5 years and lately jeans fit horribly. But these jeans are amazing! I bought a size 28!! Perfect!! I cannot wait to go out in them!! I’ve been wearing leggings for too long! I will be buying more pairs!! Thank you Fran denim!!!!
I generally don't like feeling like my pants are too low or are going to slip down too much even with a belt. The high-rise style is perfect! Comes up over my hips, but does not suffocate. Feels like a nice hug instead :) I wear these all day walking, crawling, jumping and more around construction sites and they meet the mobility demands.
im 5"8 165lb
I ordered a size 29
theyre a little snug in the thighs and bum and little too loose in the waist for me
Everything you read about these jeans is true. Trust me you will not regret this purchase. I will never buy another brand of jeans for myself again. Best fit, and so comfortable and best of all flattering! You also don’t spend all day pulling them up like other jeans.
I’m 5’8”, around 155, bought size 28. I was a little worried the waist might fit a little too tight at first, but they loosened up throughout the day. My quads fit sooo much better and more comfortably in these than anything I’ve owned in recent years! I love them. I’ll be back for shorts 🙂
I'm 5'9, 170lb and typically should wear a size 8/m in most bottoms. However I sometimes have to size up because the thighs and butt will be way to tight, and that causes a waist gap. **Enter Fran denim, sz 29 perfect fit! The waist fits perfectly, the thighs and butt perfect! Definitely worth the $$, stretchy and comfortable and you could definitely squat in them!!! Will be purchasing more!
I am astounded by how well these fit me. I'm 5'3, 33" waist, 43" hips, and ordered size 30. Will definitely be ordering more pairs.
I am 5'10", and I got the Nicole knowing that I wouldn't have enough length to cuff the bottoms and have long length jeans, but I knew that I could cuff them and have a pair of fabulous crops for the spring and summer! My plan worked out. If I need full length jeans, they work in a pinch, but they really shine as crops. for full length jeans I usually buy Emma.
I am obsessed with Fran denims! Now that I found my size I love all the high waste petite lengths. I’m just under 5’5” and bought the 28
I absolutely love these Jean's the best I've ever purchased. They definitely flatter my body shape very well! And I've even gotten compliments on them😍I am 5' 5" and weigh 150 pounds and wear size 27
I’ve been looking for pants that fit like these do. This is the first pair of button fly jeans I’ve ever had and I LOVE them! They fit my thighs and butt perfectly!
Finally!! A pair of jeans that fits my waist with NO back gap, AND I have room in the thighs!
Will definitely be purchasing another style!
It’s so nice to finally have found a pair of jeans that fit my body perfectly. They are the perfect legnth and NO WAIST GAP! They have just enough stretch but don’t stretch out during the day. For someone like me with full thighs, butt, hips, and small waist, these jeans are perfect. I will be buying another pair in the future.
I had previously tried these in a 29, which is my size in the Mika petite version fo this jean. But, I decided to try sizing down to a 28. AMAZING! I love Fran demon in general. Mika/Iris/All the shorts. But, these high rise Aprils are just my absolute favorite! I hope you make more medium washes in the April. Maybe a medium wash destruction?
I feel like I finally found a pair that finally fit my body type. The thighs fit perfectly and there is no waist gap!
Hi rise is great!
Love that these fit my waist and my thick thighs
Size 28 and 29 both worked for my 5’7” 155 lb body
The jeans fit snugly but give for movement and loosen up a bit after first wearing
Hips are 41” Waist is 37”, 5’4, 170 lbs, size 29
According to the sizing chart, I should be at least a 32. I emailed to ask about the sizing and the gal said I should try a 31. When it arrived, they were huge! In other brands, I wear a size 8 or 29, so I sized down to a 29 and they fit perfect at the waist. The thighs are still tight, but there’s no gap in the waist. 🤷🏻♀️ Moral of the story - order your normal size. I’m still deciding if I just like them or love them, but they were worth keeping. Good quality.
I am 5’ 9.5” and I weigh 190#. I purchased the size 32. The quality, feel, and comfort of these jeans is great but they were just a touch too short for my preference. I also tried the longs but they were much too long without rolling cuffs. I wish there had been 3 lengths to choose from. Also.. they fit well in the thighs, but are a little too big in the waist for me.
I have always hated shopping for jeans because of my muscular legs. I heard about Fran Denim from a Marco Counting group I joined.... after repeated praise in the group I finally ordered these jeans. They shipped fast and are true to the claim of having room for athletic thighs with a waist that fits. I can't wait to try other styles!
I am 38 years old. 5'8" 140. Size 27 is PERFECT. These are the first pair of jeans I have worn that I WANT to wear and that are COMFORTABLE. They fit me in the waist, the fit my lower half SO AMAZINGLY well. I've got a more athletic build...and...let's just say I bought a second pair of Fran Denim jeans because I have don't want to wear anything else!
This is my best online purchase yet because I finally found a company who doesn’t make jeans exclusively for people with tiny stick legs!!! I’m proud of the work I put in and am proud of my shape and now I have comfortable jeans that showcase it!! Wondering where these have been all my life. Going to order the 5” shorts next!!! Thanks Fran Denim!!!
Love these jeans. Would love to see more boot cut options!!!
These jeans are amazing!! I love how the fit my thighs, butt and waist. The move with me and there is no binding! I like ve these jeans!
These jeans are very soft and fit great. I will definitely order more!
A perfect skinny fit with buttons that lay perfectly and don’t stab you when you sit down. My only critic is they are a tad short I am 5’5” with a 29”inseam, they come to the top of my ankle bone which might be an issue if you have longer legs.
Thought they were too tight at first but after a short time wearing them they fit perfectly. Recommend sizing down or right at so they stay a little snug. Also very cute and love the button fly.
I am 5'5", 175lbs, softer shape, and got a size 31. I'm softer in the waist and have trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs and that don't cut off circulation at the knee! These fit great! I realized after I ordered they come up to 1-2" above my ankle so a bit shorter than other jeans that I have purchased from here (which I roll up a cuff for). Love the fit and that they fit my thighs without a huge gap at the waist. I love that I can squat in these with no problem! The button fly is awesome and super cute.
5’6, athletic, 150#
Size 26 and LOVE LOVE LOVE
When I put these jeans on, I felt like they were MADE FOR ME 💛💛💛
I went to a mma party and rolled (bjj) in them for 1.5hrs (sometimes happens when you get a bunch of fighters in one room and drinking ;)) and they never got too stretched out, retained perfect form after wash and never any waist gap. I LOVE THEM!
These are wonderful! I’m a 29 in the Mika, ordered a 28 in three! Absolutely perfect! I’m just under 5’5”
When I tell you these fit like a glove… I ordered a size 30 and they’re perfect. I’m fearful they’ll stretch and be too big, but for now they’re perfect.
My measurements are
I read some reviews, and got good insight into sizing that was helpful. So, I am adding additional info to help others. I am 5'9", 170 lbs, athletic build. Measurements:
34 Waist at belly button
I ordered a 29, and they fit. They are tight like you'd expect, but not too tight.
Great quality but just didn’t love the fit. Will try a different style.
I am so happy with the way these jeans fit. I have bought expensive designer jeans that still don't fit right. I was skeptical about ordering jeans online, but I liked that I was able to measure my dimensions, and find the right fit. They fit my shape perfectly. I just ordered another pair. I will definitely be buying more Fran Denim jeans.
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.
I looked at Fran because someone I follow on social media had shared that these jeans are more comfortable and more flexible than any other. I previously had purchased jeans from a local retailer, but they’re very tight as I have been spending more time working on bodybuilding style workouts. My legs have grown to about 26”. Since Fran advertised wider cuts, and they had a great discount recently, I figured that now was the time to buy. The denim used is much more comfortable, but the cut and design is about the same. Out of all my jeans, they’re my favorite, but I did have extremely high expectations.
I have a bunch of these and they have yet to let me down. These jeans are awesome.
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!
