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.
These shorts are the perfect fit and length. My favorite shorts I own. I'm 5'4" 140 and bought a 28
These are definitely long enough and are super comfortable. These are true to size, I usually wear a 27 and they fit beautifully. For reference: I’m 5’8”, 140ish lbs and wear a size 6/8 in other shorts and pants.
I love these shorts. I’m 5’2” 165 lbs. I bought a 29 and they are snug but still comfy. I could definitely comfortably go up to a 30. They are worth every penny.
Love the Melissa shorts I just purchased. I am older (62) and I really love the 5 inch inseam as the 2 and 3 inch are just too short for me. I would love this even more if it had a higher waist - it's not really low - more mid-rise - but I like a higher waist (so thankful when those came back into style). If you offered a high waist, 5 inch short, I would buy instantly!! (Hint, hint - people with athletic builds actually get older, too!) I am 5'6", weigh 140, am very athletically active and purchased a size 30.
Fabulous! Fit is fantastic, comfortable, roomy, makes me feel like the bad@$$ I am!!! I’m so grateful to have found a pair of shorts that fits my athletic figure.
These were for my gymnist-daughter who is 13 with well-defined muscles. It’s so great to NOT have a gap at her waist! They’re cute and just what we were hoping for.
Thank you so much for making shorts that fit my legs and waist!!! I absolutely love them!!
Kay Petite Skinny Dark Wash
Finally a pair of jeans for us shortys who lift!! Literally the perfect pair of jeans! I immediately ordered another pair.
I can’t believe how soft and “worn in” these jeans already feel! I was nervous, based on some reviews that said they were stiff and uncomfortable but that is definitely not my experience. I had a hard time with sizing but ended up with a 27, at 5’ tall, 123 lbs. I might have been able to pull off a 26 but the risk wasn’t worth exchanging. They are the perfect length for my short legs!
This is my third pair of Fran denim jeans. I absolutely love the fit and they are super comfortabLe. I have gotten rid of all my other brands of jeans since discovering Fran denim.
Love the fit
It’s been a long time since I purchased a pair of jeans I was excited to wear but as soon as I tried these on, I didn’t want to take them off. They have just enough stretch but are incredibly soft, like I’ve had them for years. I will definitely be purchasing another pair very soon. I think I am in between sizes so may try the next size down but I love how these fit straight out of the package. I’m around 133, 5’2” and purchased the size 28. It’s great to be excited to wear jeans again!
Love these jeans and they fit perfect
Was really shocked… there is no gap even when sitting and the back doesn’t pull down either, so no worries about underwear peaking at the top in the back.. great jeans!!!
The jeans fit like a glove. Just enough stretch but not to much to where I’m constantly having to pull them up by the end of the day.
Looking forward to getting these jeans for my husband in every color because he loves them and they fit perfectly!
Good fit and comfortable. Wearing them right now.
Just enough room for my big legs.
My son had listed Fran Denim Jeans on his Christmas Wish List and was extra happy to receive two pairs.
He is about 215 lbs, 6’1 and I purchased black straight denim. No jeans fit his body due to large quads and smaller waist. These were the perfect fit. Size 34 and length 31
The skinny version of these jeans are just as flexible and stretchy as the straight leg, which is amazing because they have a nice snug fit around my thick quads and glutes. The black is especially great for a nice sleek look while not sacrificing comfort if you hate dressing up like me LOL.
H - 5'8"/172cm W - 170lbs/77kg
size 32x31 fits perfect
My complaint with the regular jeans is that they were way too baggy. While they fit the butt and quads great, the lower half was very large.
With the slim fit jeans, they are just a bit snugger around the thighs but remain quite large around the ankles unfortunately. Jeans are nice quality, just not the style they are advertised as in my opinion.
He loved them! They are perfect for his athletic build😉
The pants on the waist has alot of room and stretches too. Even though the pants does say "skinny", it actually didn't meet my expectations. The upper part on where the thighs are stretches and you can move freely, like squats, but I was expecting the lower part of the leg to be somewhat tight. But it's okay, I'm going to buy another pair again soon. Maybe if they made another pants but somewhat make the lower part of the pants "just right", then I will buy again for sure. Hopes this helps.
I was ready to have to send one or something back, I bought two jeans skinny and strait leg, and the 8 inch jean shorts. All fit perfect waist was on point with room for my booty! Love these can’t wait to wear them on a night out!
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.
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!
Little short but my husband likes it hahah
I’m kinda between sizing right now since I had my daughter and just getting back to the gym but I’d rather pay the higher price for amazing shorts that will only fit temporarily while I loose more weight because I’ve still maintained the muscle legs with a littler waist.
Slowly throwing out my other pants and shorts in order to make room for Fran denims
I am a powerlifter and the hardest part of finding shorts is having them fit just right without a huge gap in thr waist. I measured my waste and the shorts fir perfectly on me. I am 5'2. 155lbs
I love these shorts and am so happy that I spent the money on shorts that fit my athletic thighs! I can now feel confident in my shorts!
I’ve been a Fran Denim lover for 6 years and they are the only jeans/shorts I wear. Durable, stretchy, snug in the right places. Highly recommended for thighs that save lives 😉
My wife loves them. She is 5'8" 140 and ordered size 28.
They fit great! I love the fran denim shorts! They are true to size. These are slightly longer than the ones I got last year, but they fit great.
super comfy. 5'6" 180 lbs.
My wife looks amazing in these!
I went by the models dimensions in my order and also the fact that they said they stretch out so don't order big. I am 5'6, 158, waist is 29, Hips 39, bust 37. Wish I would have ordered a size up. I ordered a 28
I have had to order and return a lot of jeans before coming across the Nate’s slim fit Fran Denim jeans. Fran Denim has the perfect combination of material: it is thick enough to feel like classic durable jeans, but elastic and fitting for a muscular build. These are the beat feeling jeans I’ve come across in a while! My only complaint is that they don’t offer these jeans in more color options.
I bought these for my man. He’s 6’4 weighs 275 very athletic build, narrow waist and thick thighs. I got 34x34 and he loves everything about them except that they are just a little too short. I really wish you had a 36 length option!!! But he still loves how great they fit and how stretchy they are.
Great look and super comfortable fit. I was finally able to size down to a waist that fits while providing enough room for glutes. Will definitely buy the dark wash as well once they become available. Absolutely recommend!
I love the way the jeans feel like jeans but I made the assumption they would fit me properly and I was wrong
Liked the fabric but didn't like the fit, sent back to exchange for the relaxed fit, hoping they work better!
Love these jeans! Other brands tend to fray on me and break in the gusset after a few months. But these jeans last much longer and have the added comfort flex. For anyone with bigger thighs and glutes, they’re fantastic! Only complaint would be that they’re a little long. But if you roll them up they’re fine. Even with that minor thing, 5 stars.
Love these - the cut is perfect and the material is great, feels durable. Only suggestion is to offer more inseam sizes.
Nate Men's Slim Fit Jeans Dark Wash
6ft 2ins, 183lbs. I purchased a 33x34. It fits perfect! Looks great and I love the flex in these pants! I have always had trouble finding jeans that fit me right, not with these! I will definitely be back for more!
These jeans are perfect for guys with big glutes, thighs and calves. I can finally wear slim fit jeans that fit my legs AND my waist. Tried them on and immediately ordered a second pair in black and the Price is nice compared to other jeans in this category.
Wife looks amazing!! But then she always does!! She loves your pants and shorts!!!
These jeans make you feel some kind of way. They fit so nicely and are SO flattering. I still need to wear a belt but the size fit nicely in the quads and butt. I’m 5’2 and 160 and ordered a 30. Can’t wait to buy another pair.
These fit great! I’ve wanted to order a pair for a while and I am so happy I did. I will only order jeans from here now!
5’2” and 135lbs. The 27 was too tight in thighs and butt for these pants. I have a pair of the dark wash in the same cut and a 27 was perfect. With a simple return, I received the 28 and am very happy with the fit. I would recommend buying a size up in the black denim. Only given a 4 out of 5 because of the return.
I love these jeans! My jeans always pulled down when I sat due to muscular thighs. I didn't realize how great my Fran Denim jeans were until I wore my old jeans after the Fran Denim purchase. I have to adjust the old ones every time I stand up!! I'm restocking with ALL Fran Denim from now on. I am 5'4" 165 and wear a 30. They fit great!
Love the way these fit. They are my new favorite jeans! I’m 5’4, weigh about 135 and ordered a size 26.
I guess I am doomed to never be able to find pants that fit my small waist and huge booty and thighs well. I was really excited for these because everyone raved about catering to the athletic body. I am definitely bottom heavy but I have a really small waist and even these didn't work for me. I still gave 4 stars though because it isn't the companies fault my body is lame :( I am 5'-6" and 178 pounds.
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.
Was looking for a slightly different Jean style than what I already had. These are very cute and fit perfectly
5'2", 140 lb, athletic build (from Olympic weightlifting), size 26
The first time I put them on, it was love. Plain and simple, these jeans are amazing. This is my first pair of FD jeans.
A few notes:
- I was on the fence for months, as it sounds like many people were. How could they really be as good as they sounded? Well, to me, they are.
- I am a 27 in other brands, and even after comparing against the measurement chart and seeming to be a 27 in FD, I followed the advice of some reviewers and went a size down for a snug fit. BEST decision ever. They fit beautifully to my preference, like a second skin.
- Some reviewers mentioned the "flat-bottom" look the jeans gave them. I have an average-sized butt and thought the same when I first put them on. However, after a few times wearing them and a time or two through the wash, they loosened up a bit and that "flat-bottom" look doesn't seem to be a problem anymore.
The long and sort of it is: I recommend buying these jeans, possibly a size down, and not being too afraid of a slightly flat bottom when you first pull them on. Just do a squat, feel how they move with you, and marvel at the miracle. Thanks, FD.
