Love the fit and look of these! Always struggled to find pants given my powerful rear and thighs. Only drawback is the dye of the jeans rubs off on my hands - common with dark wash though!
My first order fit perfectly around my curves and small waste.
I own the April and LOVE them! The Nicole high rise fit AMAZING except the waist. They are tighter in the waist than other Fran jeans. The sizing of the jean is fine, it just runs smaller in the waist.
The quality of the pants speaks for itself. They fit right and look good. Though I still like the feel of traditional jeans these will be on top of the list.
Nicole High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
The fit was perfect and they’re incredibly comfortable. I never wear jeans, I can’t stand to wear them but I will be wearing these regularly! The only thing I wish is that they were a little bit longer. I’m 5’9” and they’re not quite as long as I would prefer.
I’ve been training a lot and as a result getting bigger thighs and hips. Not being able to fit into what I used to, I started the hunt for jeans. I’m 5’4 about 170lbs and bought a size 31. I have never been more comfortable in a pair of jeans before!
I have a couple of Fran Denim jeans. They are very comfortable and have no gap at the waist. The only problem is that I have the Nicole in two different washes and the lighter color is bigger than the dark wash. I kept it because I’m terrible about sending stuff back but now I don’t know what size to order next time. I like the tighter fit of the first pair better. If it wasn’t for this I would have given 5 stars.
Just did a Fran workout today. Woo hoo
These are excellent jeans for my pear-shaped athletic body. I’m between sizes 25 and 26. I chose a 25 because they recommended to go a sizer lower, but I should have gone with the 26. They are still comfortable and wearable but a little snug in the inseam.
Thrilled to find some new, great black pants that fit FANTASTICALLY. I wore these in place of black dress pants on a recent work trip and they were perfect. Good quality, not worried about them tearing or wearing out any time soon. Never needed a belt. Slightly less high rise than I expected - otherwise, exceeded all expectations! I am 5'9" and ~170 pounds, and a 30 was perfect.
This is my 2nd pair of jeans from Fran Denim, and I absolutely love them! Perfect fit in the waist and roomy enough for my legs.
I have eyed Fran Denim for years now, but was never confident in sizing to actually purchase. I am 5'7" 76kg weightlifter usually weighing between 72-75kg and went with size 29. Perfect for thick legs, butt, and waist. Before I was wearing jeans from Lucky, which I also do like, and those were size 30 with the long size, but tight tight tight with not much give. After reading reviews I chose 29 from Fran Denim and they fit really well! The only change I would make for future orders is ordering a mid rise waist because the high rise is a high rise. Place your order!!
I'm 5'3", 123-125lbs. I originally purchased a size 27 but ended up exchanging for a size 25. I'm in love with these jeans because I've FINALLY found a pair that fit both my thighs and my waist! Previously I paid at least double what I've paid for these when I purchased a custom-made pair of jeans that I was also in love with. I thought I would always have to purchase custom-made jeans due to the natural difference between my waist and thighs/hips in particular. So grateful my friend told me about this company! No more scrunched waist line. This will not be the last pair of jeans I order :D
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.
Best jeans ever
Just as happy with these as the first pair I bought. Quality fit and feel. I'm 5'6", 143 lb, got size 26.
These fit like a glove and I will be ordering more.
Not a huge fan of “skinny” jeans so these are my compromise for the skinny look but still accommodating muscular calves. Similar to my other 4 pairs, these mold to my body in about an hour or so and feels like a second skin. I love that this brand fits my hourglass figure without waist gaps and doesn’t try to flatten my booty. Ordered in 27 with 26”W 29” at belly button 38”hips 5’7” 155. I have 26 & 27 in different styles but prefer 27 in the skinnier styles.
These are the first pair of jeans that have fit me perfectly! I have spent a lifetime buying and altering jeans.. finally got it right.
Two suggestions: 1. Black jeans 2. A little stretch would be great to keep the shape
I purchased the Mika High Rise Petite Skinny Medium Wash jeans recently and am very happy with them. I ordered the Petite because my legs are short and pants are always way too long. The inseam is listed at 28". I think my inseam might be a little closer to 29" so I wasn't sure if the length would work - but it does! The jeans are a great length for me - just reaching my ankle. The length works well with a sandal or a flat or an ankle boot. The fit is typical Fran Denim - super comfortable and no waist gap. For reference, I am 5"6" and 145 pounds and I ordered size 30.
I am 99% in love with these jeans. They are comfortable and flattering, but the fabric over the zipper doesn't lay flat over the zipper. It's mildly irritating, but overall I love these jeans.
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.
These are probably the best, most comfortable jeans I have ever bought. I have ALWAYS struggled with buying jeans; having a more muscular build including larger thighs and behind with a smaller waist, but these jeans fit in all the right places. There is no waist gap and they truly are squat proof. I went based on the sizing chart and it is pretty spot on, and I could have even gone one size down as they become more loose as you wear them.
These jeans are well worth it, and I will definitely be making more purchases here!!
I purchased these jeans and love them. I am 150lbs, per the size chart it said I needed a 28. I ordered a 27 based on the model size and weight and had to size down to a 26. In Madewell jeans I am a 25/26. These fit great and I have gotten lots of compliments. No gap in the back and my legs fit! They do stretch too
I just received my Ellen Flare Dark Wash and I am very pleased. They are super flattering. The legs are long for me but that is always the case for me - short legs. I am 5'6" and 150 pounds and I purchased a size 30. They fit well and are comfortable. I think they will relax a little, too, and that will make me happier.
I put these on to see how they break in and I just haven't taken them off. I have a very finicky hip that will start reacting to any clothing putting pressure in the wrong place, but so far no issues with these. I'm so excited! I never thought I'd be able to wear jeans all day again!
These are size 28 and are a comfy, relaxed fit for me after a few hours. Could probably take in the waistband an inch or two but it's not really an issue. I think I could wear 27 if I wanted them a little tighter.
These jeans are great! No back gaps fit my legs and waist
Such a great pair of jeans! They’re comfortable and fit my waiste and thighs and even the length
had a friend over that I convinced to try buy a pair of jeans from you while she was here … when they arrived it was the bedst fitted jeans she had ever tried… absolutely a success
I bought these because my legs outgrew my Old Navy jeans. These fit snug around my waist with room for my legs and no gap in the back. Could not be more pleased. I am 5'6", 191 lbs with a 34" waist. I bought a size 32.
Madisons in this wash are my favorite jeans. I have a 44.5” hip measurement and wear size 31.
They are a perfect fit and very comfortable
I ordered to long of pants and it was so simple to exchange them. Thank you
Really like the fit and the color; and long really IS long! Easy to move around in … I’ll be purchasing more!
Update: My fav jeans were accidentally transferred to the dryer and they are not the same AT ALL. These used to be the most comfortable jeans ever and they've now lost all stretch and are so tight on my knees it's cutting off circulation. There's no more "give" in the jeans, I'm floored at how drastically these changed...
The most comfortable, best looking jeans I have ever worn. I could sleep in them! Just purchased pair number 6.
Emma Long Inseam High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
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!
I recently began kettlebell workouts in place of lifting, and gained a lot of muscle. My other jeans had already been a squeeze, but are pretty much impossible to wear, now. I hat spending a lot of money on jeans, but gave in and bought these. I'm 5'9", 185lb, and bought the 28". I would prefer the 29", but this just gives me great motivation to lose a bit more body fat. It's practically impossible for me to find normal jeans that fit, and I never buy any pants online. I'm pretty amazed that this pair is high quality AND fits well, on my first try. Great company.
I was skeptical about these jeans until I wore them for the first time. Ahhhh! No more hiking up my jeans all day. They stay in place and no gaps. Based on other reviews I did go down a size and they were a perfect fit. Ordering another pair now. I would like to see more options in the long inseam though.
I was very pleased when I received my jeans. I ordered the Emma Long High Rise Skinny.
I typically wear a 30 in regular jeans, I ordered a 29... now as I wear them, I could have gone to a 28. They do stretch quite a bit while you wear them.
I will certainly order again!
I recommend going 2 sizes down.
I am 5'7" (ish) and 160lbs with a "strong build" as they say... I bought size 29 (I maybe could've sized down, but idk, these fit pretty darn well). I am ALWAYS having trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs but also are snug on my waist. These jeans do just that- they are stretchy enough to hug my thighs and the high waist leaves no gap at my waist. The zipper is also high quality and little details like that matter. Would definitely recommend to other lifters and women with similar body type- thankful for my Fran Denim jeans!
These by far are my favorite jeans. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for the last 12 years - and they can’t hold on much longer. I have been looking for the perfect pair of jeans to fit my thick legs and bottom. I’ve tried other jeans with similar material and they would always slide down. These jeans stay put! I’m 5’9” and 186lbs and the 30” fit me like a glove. Bought another pair already!
I had been on the fence to purchase these jeans, but after reading reviews and seeing pictures from real customers, I decided to buy…..super happy with my choice.
From the size chart I chose size 27 in the April jean. I have struggled since a little girl to find jeans that would not give me waist gap, but could house my booty. I’m built fairly lean but have always had a butt. Since taking up training, my butt and thighs have significantly increased. These jeans provide the perfect amount of stretch for my butt and thighs. The waist is still a bit too big, but for “bloat days”, it will be fine. I plan to purchase another pair, but in 26. For reference I’m about 5’7”, 27 waist, and 37 1/2 hip.
Definitely worth every penny!
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.
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 😃
The denim, while still super-stretchy, is more durable than my old shorts. Great color. I purchased a size 27 (waist is small). I'm 5' 3" 140 lbs.
I absolutely LOVE these fran denim shorts! I fold mine up because although I like the fringe, I do like clean lines, hah. Luckily, these are long enough to do so without looking like they’re too short! I’ve never owned a more comfortable pair of shorts and I’m so excited to grow my collection of fran denim!
I have always had trouble finding shorts that fit my legs and booty without a giant gap at the waist. I have been a CrossFit athlete for 3 years which has only added to the struggle. I am so glad I tried Fran Denim!! These shorts are so comfortable and fit perfectly!! The pictures don't do them justice! I'm 5' 1" 140lbs and I ordered size 28.
Get a little loose after wearing them should have sized down. The back pockets could be a little bigger but over all happy
Awesome fit! My legs don’t feel trapped these shorts are super comfortable.
I’ve bought 2 pairs of Fran denim, I have loved both styles
Seriously, these jeans fit like they were tailored just for my body, they’re so soft and comfortable. I could wear them all day everyday!
I’ve been buying Fran denim for years! I’ve always had an athletic lower half due to soccer and never have been able to wear jeans that fit. I am 5’2”, 123lbs and wear a size 26. I prefer the crop or the petite high rise jeans.
They are good in that they do fit athletic build but are kinda thin and not the best style. They’ll work but not my favorite FD jean.I do like that they are shorter but will have to finish the bottom myself because it frays a lot with each wash.
These jeans are the perfect “go to” jean. They are easy to dress up or down. They are comfortable from the minute you put them on and stay that way all day. Easy to care for and durable!
Size 29 (I like mine a little lose).
Very comfortable, good movement. Fit 5'8", 150 lbs, woman
I am 5’8”, approx 153 lbs and I ordered a 29 in these. I do enjoy the relaxed fit, I will say that the crotch area sits a bit low and did cause some discomfort, unpleasant bunching. These were also a bit buggy under the bum. Overall, they are comfortable, I do like the length inseam wise. I DO enjoy these pants.
The jeans are fantastic for me. I don't like the look of skinny jeans on me. I do not work out, but have always been thick-thighed and large bottomed. The are a great rise for my mommy belly and I love the loose fit.
Most comfortable and flattering shorts I’ve owned!
Customer service was awesome, communications was quick and informative. Shorts came and are high quality and exactly as I had hoped to get.
I am 5’6” 145lbs and bought a size 25. I could have probably even gone down to a 24, but they are sooooo comfortable!!!!
NEW! SOPHIE BUTTON FLY SHORTS DARK WASH
I am generally a thrift store shopper and not one to invest a lot of money in clothing, but in this case it was so worth it. I am 5'4, 130 lbs with a 27 in waist and 37 in hips. I purchased a size 25 in these shorts and am thrilled with how they fit! I will definitely be purchasing a pair of jeans in the near future. Also, appreciate the excellent customer service!
Not a fan of super high waisted pants, especially on petites, and these may be the highest. Well above my belly button and at 5'3' I'm one of the taller petites. Wish they would make these with a midrise. Returned for the midrise boot cut in regular length and will have to hem them.
I absolutely love these jeans! So glad they finally make a petite boot cut. They remind me of what I wore in high school 15 years ago. Minus the high rise, which is just awesome for my mom body lol. I'm a 5'4" 135 lb crossfitter, and I got a size 28.
Love the fit in hips/thighs/waist but even petite sizing is too long. I'm 5'2" and unless I wear these with high heels, which I won't, I'll need to have them altered.
My Granddaughter loved these so much I had to buy her 2 more pair!
I myself have 2 pair... We both love them!
So originally I ordered a size 30 and they fit great but was not as snug above the butt. Exchanged for size 29 and they fit amazing! I’m actually going to order another pair because they feel so good on. I might even size down one more since I’m trying to loose weight and they do loosen up a little after wearing them for a while. I’m 5’2 148-150lbs. They are definitely pricey, but so worth it! It’s better to have jeans that feel good, and look good than several cheap ones are uncomfortable and not flattering.
I debated returning these but ended up keeping them because they actually do fit and it’s so hard for me to find jeans that fit. I didn’t realize that they were going to be ankle-length. I’m 5’8’ 165 and the 31’s fit my waist and have room in the hips but don’t even reach my ankle. The inseam is also very long -well above belly-button. It would be great if it were an inch or two shorter in the front.
All I can say is OMG!!! I am typically not an online clothes shopper.. I've always been "hard to fit" with thicker thighs and smaller waist and going out on a limb to purchase at these prices set my anxiety on high! BUT after reading all the reviews I took the leap of faith and ordered.. YES! I'm in heaven. Hands down the most comfortable jeans I have EVER owned. Fit is perfect. Style is perfect. Quality is amazing. I am a forever customer now!!! I am 5'5-1/2" 145lbs 35-36" Hips, 28" Waist and got a size 26 and the fit is absolutely perfect. They do have stretch and are looser after wearing a while but still very comfortable and flattering.
I have 4-5 pairs of Fran and this is my favorite so far. The most comfortable and I like the inseam length. I'm 5'1'' and weigh 125 and I got the 24. Is a little more roomy than other pairs of Fran I have but I actually like that. Some of the other Frans I have are a little tighter than I'd like. They fit me fine, but I like the extra room in the mom jeans. I would love a pair that fits similarly, but isn't quite as high rise.
Fran has to be my all time favorite jeans ever. I expanded my wardrobe with the Esme mom jean, and I was not disappointed. They run a teeny bit bigger than the other styles, but still fit with room for the peach and no gap at the waist.
I've been thinking about purchasing Fran denim for a while, but the price made me hesitate. I finally bought them as a birthday present for myself, and I'm so pleased that I did! When I put these jeans on, it was truly the first time I can remember ever pulling on pants and knowing they fit exactly as they should. I have always struggled to find pants that didn't have an enormous waist gap or too-tight thighs. Even "curvy fit" pants don't accommodate my athletic build. These are wonderfully comfortable and cute, and no tugging whatsoever to get them on. I love them, and I'm looking forward to getting more.
I ordered according to website recommendations (28) & had to exchange for a 31, which was fairly easy. Customer service reached out to me, to make sure the 31s would fit all my measurements. I’m Native American & an ice hockey goalie, so the 28s wouldn’t even go on over my 25 inch quads. The 31s fit perfectly! The waist is loose enough to tuck a shirt in comfortably, if I want, but not enough to slide down or gap at all. I got the flares so I don’t know if I’d have a problem with my 16 inch calves in the skinny jeans or not. The denim thickness & the super sturdy zipper are superior to FitJeans (their largest size was tighter than compression leggings & those were a nightmare to return; I had to file an application & wait for it to be approved). I’m 5ft 2, weight 162, with a 30 inch waist & 42 in hips (glutes), for additional reference.
I am glad I purchased these jeans - so comfortable! The only thing I wish was different was the length. I could’ve used an extra inch or two to make these jeans perfect!
love the feel and fit of these jeans, however the pockets just seem very off for me, too high (yes i know they are high rise) just dont get why pockets have to be so high up makes my bum look kind of flat :-( the rest of the fit is great i do love the feel and comfort of these jeans.
I’m 5ft 6 and 138lbs and bought size 28. I have a-line hips. I love these jeans! So stretchy and soft and they look great on my thighs and butt :D
Best pair of jeans ever!!!
