I was very worried about buying jeans online but after receiving my first pair of Fran Denims, I understood why they are so highly rated. They are so comfortable & flattering. I will be buying more. I'm 5'3" & around 130 lbs - size 26 fits perfectly.
I am usually a size 6 in pants. The occasional 8 and the occasional 4. I purchased a size 27 and while I kept them and have worn them but they are tighter than I would prefer...especially the calves. I dont have huge legs but they are thicker...maybe the 28 would have been better. A little disappointed.
Awesome fit! Rise in back us sufficient I am not playing peekaboo.
I got a pair of the "Nicole" Fran Denim jeans last year and really liked them. Based on measurements, the company suggested I get a 27. While I really liked the Nicoles, I wanted something with an even higher rise so I tried the Aprils. I sized up for just a little more give and I am absolutely in love. I can wear these jeans all day without feeling like they get too tight or the burrito I ate for lunch is making my belly too big. They flatter my big ole quads and butt, and make my stubby legs look longer. Will definitely order again.

Absolutely could not be more pleased! I ordered a second pair in black the next day to have a pair that I can wear to work- can’t wear blue jeans, but black is acceptable. I spend all day transferring and assisting patients with ADL- bending, lifting and on my knees on the floor a lot! They are as comfortable as all my high quality leggings, only they’re not leggings!
I wish they were available in tan, grey, brown-I’d buy one in every color!
You will not be disappointed!
April Super High Rise Skinny Medium Wash
I know these are skinny jeans but I think they run small; my other pairs of Fran are a 31 and they fit my 44/45” hips perfectly, but the Aprils are a bit smaller. Regardless of that, I love them and the high waist and the inseam length, and they give me the space my quads and glutes need. I’m always happy with the quality and workmanship of Fran, plus supporting American workers is important to me.
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!!!
In order to return an item, they messed upon it. The item must be unworn/unwashed/tags in place/ and within 30 days. Outside of that, they are great jeans and this brand of jeans is the most comfortable I have ever worn. Just wish I could have received a pair the fit. Please fix your return policy.
My husband, immediately after trying these on: "Look what I can do!" *karate high kick*
I think that speaks for itself- we'll be buying more.
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.
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!
