I wear a size 32, high rise jeans. My hips are 40 inches, my waist is 35 inches and I am 5 ' 4" . These are the best jeans that actually go over my thighs and butt. Jeans in the dept store were always too small. I have been lifting weights for 39 years and so it is difficult to find jeans for an athletic form. Fran denim jeans are wonderful. I couldn't have been happier with my selection.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
