I have had several FD shorts and jeans, but these fit more snug than the chart recommends. I am 5’4” about 130 lbs and ordered a size 26 based on my measurements and their size chart. They were WAY too tight and could barely get them on. Sized up to a 27 and they fit perfectly! I usually wear a 26 in FD shorts/jeans. Not sure if they have changed their cut but the recent darker washed products seem to be running small. Worth the hassle though because these are the best denim brand out there once you get the right fit! Soft, flexible, and get even more comfortable over time.
I love the fit of these jeans! I have always had to purchase larger jeans to accommodate my thighs but they were always too big in my waist and hips. These jeans fit great! I’m 5’ 2” and 128 lbs and purchased a size 27. Could possibly have gone with a 26 but I wanted them to be less snug. LOVE the button fly!
They almost felt too tight to start but stretched after first wear. Husband likes the look.
I bought these in a 31. I’m 5’5” and weigh around 160. They are very snug at first, but stretch out enough to be comfortable, but not baggy.
These jeans are very soft and fit great. I will definitely order more!
Ok so I know high rise jeans are in but these are amazing!!!! I hope they are made in more washes :) fit true to size
Bought for my son, he's 5'11" 220#. Got 38x34. Fit great except too long. He normally wears 34" length but these are about 2-3" or so longer than his other pants. He says it's worth it though to have them fit better in the upper areas.
Daniel Straight Leg Dark Wash
I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit well. I have larger legs from lifting. I can never find jeans that fit my legs, butt and waist. These fit perfect. I highly recommend them
They have more stretch then other jeans in the closet and seem durable. Knocked a star off for price. Hubby is 6'1', 225, and ordered a 34x34. They were a bit large originally but shrunk up a bit to a good size.
I'm a 5'8", 175-180 lbs fitness enthusiast and got a 32"/31". This is the first pair of jeans that I've ever owned that fit comfortably. I am ordering a second pair because these are a 'needle-in-a-haystack' find.
My son has European genes and has always been bigger than his friends. He never fit in the pants most guys can wear. Now he is in the gym and no jeans fit until now. One happy Mom
Big Quads Jean lovers Unite! I love how these fit and don't sag, but accommodate people with larger Quads. For all you QuadZillas out there, check these jeans out!
These jeans fit awesome. I’ve been searching for jeans that fit like these for years. If you train your legs and have a hard time finding jeans that fit, give Fran denim a try!
I am so happy with these jeans. I have hardly ever owned jeans since I was a teenager due to having an athletic build with large thighs built cycling and lifting weights. So, my outfits are usually overly formal or overly sportive. The only jeans I have owned in the last 15 years were hip hop baggy jeans that made me look fat. My wife was very happy to see me wearing nicely fitted jeans in a casual outfit. They are loose enough to be comfortable and stretchy so that I don't feel inhibited in my movements playing with my daughter or working around the house.
Having big trouble trying to find the nice fit while being able to move properly. They fit nicely. Would like them to be just a little bit more fit on the calf but other than that. Can’t complaint! :) Love them!!
Definitely fit better than most jean shorts. I have large thighs though and a small waist and they still gapped a lot. Thighs 26" waist 29" hips 41"
Fran denim shorts have a fantastic fit for athletic builds. The first time i wore them before the wash, i was in love. The only problem with these shorts is the fold at the bottom, it does not stay and since there is a fold in the fabric it rolls. I typically don’t get shorts with a fold for this reason, but the cut I wanted was already sold out in my size.
Like the title says I’ve been wearing them practically every day. Very comfortable, great looking fit, wash with no change to size. Go smaller than you may think if you’re new to Fran denim!
I ordered a size 30. It’s too big! Not just loose fitting but actually too big. I’m hoping a 29 will fit. I would usually order a 29 but I needed a 30 for my other pair of Frans (Madison I think). I am 5’7.5”, 155lb and my thighs are 24in
Never have I ever… had shorts fit me like these! So excited to wear them all summer long!
These shorts fit great and are super comfy according to my daughter who wears them ALL the time. She swims and Fran Denim are the best shorts for her athletic body. Tiny waist, swimmer muscles.
I love these shirts. I’ve been skeptical to try Fran Denim, but damn. These are indeed made for an athletic physique.
Very happy with my new shorts. It was a bit of a gamble ordering from the Netherlands. I used the size charts on the website and it fits perfectly. Fabric is really nice and soft. Finally found jeans shorts that fits perfectly 😃
My life has changed! I have never been able to wear shorts. They always ride up, where too tight in all the wrong places, and I had given up. But now --- Not only am I wearing these shorts everywhere but I've been stopped three times in the last week. Feeling confident and love showing off my legs for the first time in years! Thank you for creating this incredible brand - I am a buyer for life!
Height - 5'9; weight - 180, size 31.
I literally went to 20 stores to try and find something that did not gap in the waist. I am beyond thrilled with how these fit and how soft they are. These are amazing! I will be buying more from Fran Denim!!
I have pretty long legs and I love the length of these because they don’t roll up and are just the right length. I also love the fit. These shorts are perfect for anyone with a smaller waist but nice fit legs :)
I have always struggled with shorts that fit correctly...I have a booty and muscular thighs, but a small waist. I always have a big gap in the waist if the shorts fit my booty. These are the best! Perfect fit, perfect length (I don't want booty hanging out!) and no ride-up! I am 5'1", 130lbs and I wear size 28.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I love these shorts. The material is so soft, there is no waist gap or muffin top, and the shorts stay put on my thighs. I've never felt like I look good in denim shorts until now. If they came in different colors, I'd buy every one.
Mika High Rise Petite Skinny Medium Wash
I love these jeans! It took me 3 tries to get the right size that fit well, but after I did, they stretched to fit perfectly. I wear them as often as I can. I wear a size 30 and am 5 foot 2 and around 165 pounds. They were just a tad bit tight on the first fit, but they did stretch some and are great now.
They're still my favorite jeans! I can do anything in them.
I now have 3 pair of fran denim. And I love them. They fit perfect for the athletically built lady.
Just got mine today and am in love. Will definitely be buying more. No waist gap or saggy butt! Wore them for four hours and they held their shape. The struggle to find pants that fit my thighs and waist is OVER. It only took 45 years! I’m 5’4” 133lbs. Measured my waist this week and it was 28” at the narrowest part.
The 27s fit perfectly. I’ve always had curves but recently have been strength training and building muscle.
I have always had a big booty and had a hard time finding shorts that don’t get swallowed by my thighs and cover my butt. These fit my legs and butt great and don’t ride up too much! They definitely rode up the front a bit upon getting them but after wearing them several times they fit perfectly!
I'm so happy. I finally own shorts that don't ride up. These are roomy and flattering and I'm so happy to have them. Thanks, Fran! I'm 5'10", 160, wide hips, and comfortably wearing a 29...I almost swapped them for a 30 but as with my jeans, they stretch.
I got a larger size because I am not a fan of shorts at all but these are wonderful and fit my hips and thighs nicely.
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.
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!!
