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 am astounded by how well these fit me. I'm 5'3, 33" waist, 43" hips, and ordered size 30. Will definitely be ordering more pairs.
I am 5'10", and I got the Nicole knowing that I wouldn't have enough length to cuff the bottoms and have long length jeans, but I knew that I could cuff them and have a pair of fabulous crops for the spring and summer! My plan worked out. If I need full length jeans, they work in a pinch, but they really shine as crops. for full length jeans I usually buy Emma.
I am normally a size 28 in jeans (I'm 5'7", 155lb, 29" high waist, 31" waist at belly button, 40" booty) and this also fits the Fran sizing. Because of the recommendation on the website to size up for the black Julie jeans, I ordered a 29. After wearing them once, they are baggy on the waist! I wish I had ordered the correct size 28. I also ordered another pair of jeans from Fran in size 28 and they fit perfectly. So if you size yourself to fit properly, I do not recommend going one size up for these black jeans.
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
I have a pair of dark wash Nicole High Rise Skinnies, but I really wanted a pair in black and the only ones available were the Julie. I think I like the fit of the Nicole a little bit better, but the Julie is still a great pair of quality jeans.
All my life I have had quads. Due to genetics, sports (track) and dance. FINALLY someone thought to design jeans fit girls with QUADS!! And even better they chose a tag line that didn’t body shame us!! “For the dedicated” ❤️❤️❤️
Love these jeans!! I am a new mom and just getting my body back, these jeans made me feel sexy and put together great for a date night out!
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.
I am 5’ 9.5” and I weigh 190#. I purchased the size 32. The quality, feel, and comfort of these jeans is great but they were just a touch too short for my preference. I also tried the longs but they were much too long without rolling cuffs. I wish there had been 3 lengths to choose from. Also.. they fit well in the thighs, but are a little too big in the waist for me.
I have always hated shopping for jeans because of my muscular legs. I heard about Fran Denim from a Marco Counting group I joined.... after repeated praise in the group I finally ordered these jeans. They shipped fast and are true to the claim of having room for athletic thighs with a waist that fits. I can't wait to try other styles!
I am 38 years old. 5'8" 140. Size 27 is PERFECT. These are the first pair of jeans I have worn that I WANT to wear and that are COMFORTABLE. They fit me in the waist, the fit my lower half SO AMAZINGLY well. I've got a more athletic build...and...let's just say I bought a second pair of Fran Denim jeans because I have don't want to wear anything else!
This is my best online purchase yet because I finally found a company who doesn’t make jeans exclusively for people with tiny stick legs!!! I’m proud of the work I put in and am proud of my shape and now I have comfortable jeans that showcase it!! Wondering where these have been all my life. Going to order the 5” shorts next!!! Thanks Fran Denim!!!
Love these jeans. Would love to see more boot cut options!!!
These jeans are amazing!! I love how the fit my thighs, butt and waist. The move with me and there is no binding! I like ve these jeans!
I now have about 5 pairs of Fran Demins. All the Mika washes (dark / destruction / medium) and then the Iris (button fly / both the dark / medium wash) they all fit me very similar and wonderfully. Easy to move / comfy all day / doesn’t stretch out to not fit property / and they make my bum look great! I’m hoping they wear over time because that is the only box that I haven’t yet tested! I’m just und 5’5’’ and ordered the 29’s.
Absolutely the best Denim ever!! One of many styles I wear...
I'm 5' tall and 130 I bought a Mika high rise petite skinny size 26. I thought I was over skinny jeans but these jeans are perfectly comfy and not restricting. The waist perfect, no belt is needed to keep them up. There's room for my calves without restriction but still great contouring for an all over hug that lifts the the bum. Worth every penny. I will definitely buy again.
I am 5’1” tall and weigh 125 pounds. These are the first pair of skinny jeans I have worn that actually fit my waist and thighs. I followed the measurement instructions and ordered a size 25. They fit perfectly. They are not very stretchy and I expected them to be. But I love the fit.
Seriously. I live in these jeans. I've always been quad-heavy and tiny-waisted, which has only been exacerbated since I started lifting heavy. I'd resigned myself to never finding jeans that fit properly. Ordered a pair of Fran Denim jeans expecting more of the same and reader, I almost CRIED when I put them on. They FIT. They fit ME. I've got two pairs of jeans and a pair of shorts now and I'll be buying more and evangelizing. I still cannot believe there's a company that actually makes jeans that fit ME.
Emma Long Inseam High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
I’m 5’10”, weigh 160 lbs. Proportionally I have much larger quads and glutes compared to my waist, but there is still a significant gap in the jeans at my waist. I want to love them. Great color and length and just the right amount of stretch. Also love the durability and quality of material. Luckily my thighs and glutes keep them from falling, but the space between my waist and waist band of the jean is a few inches.
I’m 5’10, 170 #. I struggle with finding jeans that fit properly. I have bigger thighs and a smaller waist as well as bigger calves. I don’t like when they are too snug in certain places, when I have to yank them up in order to sit or having to adjust all the time. I finally caved and splurged on these jeans and they are so comfortable. I can literally walk around doing squats in them if I wanted to. The long inseam are *almost* too long but I like having the option to cuff them at the bottom! My only complaint is they do stretch a little bit so they become looser around my knees and right below my belt loops on my backside but I think the smaller size may have been too tight. I did follow the size guide and ordered a 29. Overall, I am loving my purchase and I’m going to be buying more!
I wear a 10/12 , 5ft 10. 34 Inseam. These jeans were the PERFECT Length for me. Also the Waist height is perfectly over my belly button, and I have a long torso. I saw the model wearing this style and she looked like my same build and height so I got size 31, but I could have worn a 30 Also as they have a lot of stretch. I will for sure buy another pair!
Loving this cut! Incredibly comfortable - my go-to denim every time.
5’10” - 160lbs. Size 28
I bought these hoping for a looser fit, but they are as tight, if not tighter than the Nicoles that I bought in the same size: so they’re really somewhere in between a skinny jean and a boot cut at the ankles. Good things: great colour, perfect length in the legs and in the rise (waist)
Too long, and really fit like a skinny jean. I’m over skinny jeans, I want a jean that makes my butt look good and is flattering for muscular legs but leaves a little to the imagination. The waist isn’t too high, that’s another fad I cannot wait to end. Give me that mid rise jean. Size 27, 5’4, 137lbs.
I am everything the advertisements talk about: thick thighs and a big booty with a narrow waist. Jeans are either too narrow for my thighs, so they’re constantly being pulled down, or I buy a pair with a larger waist to fit over my butt. Both of these situations result in an uncomfortable fit all day. THESE Fran Denim jeans are the solution! I’ve now worn mine 5 times before I had to wash them and they’re absolutely perfect. They’re not working themselves down all day and they fit over my butt and at my waist at the same time. I’m so in love! For reference, I’m 5’5”, 180 lbs. and I have an almost 10” difference between my waist and my “hips”. I normally wore a size 12 and just suffered through the thigh issues. I ordered a 31 in the Madison fit and I’ll be ordering more in the future!
I’m 5’5” and about 155. I ordered a size 28 and it’s excellent. They don’t gap or slide down, which is exceptional for jeans for me. Very happy with this purchase.
For the first time in my life I have a pair of jeans that fits my waist and my booty too. I don’t feel like I’m picking up my jeans from the waist down constantly… They don’t slide down. Excited for my next pair
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!
Love the fit of these jeans. The fabric feels like a good quality, not flimsy, and they hold their form well after a few days of wearing. I just wish there were more colors! 5’9” 170, size 29 fit great.
Love these jeans! They are my go-to. The shorts are great too! I wish the flare style came in a long inseam though I would be 100% on board with wearing more than just skinny jeans
Finally - jeans that fit! In addition to big ass and thigh - I had a long torso, so the high waisted is great!
These are my favorite jeans to wear! I get more compliments on how my legs and butt look in these!
Cute but had to return due to too long of inseam. No fault of the company; bootcut works with a slightly long inseam but not flare. (62 in tall; 155lbs)
I LOVE these jeans, the fit and material are comfy and they flatter my more muscular physique. I am 5'5" and 160 lbs. I have larger hips, bubble butt and muscular thighs and calves. I had given up on jeans long ago as most jeans are built for smaller hips and skinny legs. But I back in jeans now thanks to this company 🙌 🙏 I maybe could have gone down one size since they lossen up a bit after wearing them for a while. Definitely true to size but if you are in between sizes I suggest picking the smaller size because there is a lot of stretch and forgiveness.
I really didn’t mean to buy the full flare jeans since I’m really not too big of a fan and have never found flares that I like on me. For some reason in my head I thought I bought bootcut and didn’t realize the mistake until they got here. Whoops. Well I tried them on thinking I’d probably just return for bootcut and ended up loving them. So comfortable and fit in all the right spots. I am 5’5 (almost), 68kgs and ordered a 29. The waist is a little looser than my typical 28s that I get but everywhere else is perfect. I am definitely keeping and will just have to order myself the bootcut separately now.
First purchase of Fran denim & did not disappoint. they really do fit my thighs so comfortably and i dont have to wear a belt and have no waist gap! I'm comfortable sitting down and look hella cute!
I love these shorts. They have the perfect amount of stretch and look great on me! I'm 5'10" 171lb, and I purchased a 29.
awesome shorts. they look great on my wife and she says they’re true to size
I ordered my first pair of Fran Denim shorts. I was so nervous with the sizing because my measurements were in between two sizes (the size chart is AWESOME by the way) so I emailed Fran Denim and they emailed me back right away with sizing help. I ordered my pair of the Amy short. They came in and were a little too tight for my liking. I emailed them again and explained what happened. They allowed me to return them and exchange for the next size up. I ordered my first pair on promo and they even honored the promo on my second pair even though it didn’t “qualify”.
My new shorts came in and they are like butter. I have thick thighs and they stay out with minimal riding and the waist fits perfectly. And they look great.
These shorts are actually amazing. No gaping at the waist and super stretchy. I haven't worn jean shorts in at least two years because I had never found any comfortable, until now!
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 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.
FINALLY. I haven’t worn non athletic shorts in years. No waist gap, no digging in the legs. These shorts are everything.
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.
I am so happy with the way these jeans fit. I have bought expensive designer jeans that still don't fit right. I was skeptical about ordering jeans online, but I liked that I was able to measure my dimensions, and find the right fit. They fit my shape perfectly. I just ordered another pair. I will definitely be buying more Fran Denim jeans.
I love everything I have gotten from Fran denim. These shorts fit great. I’m 5’7”. 147 lbs. I got a 29.
Height: 5’6. Weight: 130. Size ordered: 25. BEST SHORTS EVER ORDERED! Fit perfectly and stay “snug” the whole day!
I love high rise shorts but they were always too snug in the bit or thighs. These fit perfect! No riding up or tugging down. Will try jeans this fall!
These shorts are absolutely amazing! I was skeptical about buying them because I usually like to try clothes on before I buy them, but I love everything about these shorts. They fit great, and they are now my favorite pair of shorts!
I am 5’5”, 135lbs, and I ordered a size 28!
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!
Best fit I've ever had, super comfy, and absolutely adorable! Easily my favorite denim shorts!
These shorts are awesome and give full ass coverage. Please make these in more styles and washes :)
I've never had a better fitting pair of shorts in my whole life. No joke. I have naturally thick quads and booty in addition to following Paragon Training Methods so the dreaded waist gap vs. strangled thighs has always been a struggle. These shorts fit SO PERFECT. Lots of room for the glutes and also small enough in the waist plus just enough stretch for comfortable all day wear. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
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!
These are so cute on! They’re not AS tight as my other Fran jeans in the same size but they look like they’re suppose to fit that way because of the camo print. They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. For reference I’m 5’4”, about 140lbs with a short torso and longer legs. I wear a 29 in Fran shorts and a 27 in Fran jeans comfortably. These are a little long but I could get away with cuffing the bottoms or not.
Love the way these fit. I’m 5’7 150lbs.
I now own 5 pair of Fran Denim Jeans and look forward to my next pair.
Love them! Best jeans ever!!!
my ONLY complaint was the style I bought, the website said to size up, which i did, and they ended up too big. If I had ordered my "normal' size they would have been fine. Otherwise, I LOVE them. Nice construction, minimal gaps (there are some because they are too big) . I will definitely get more, the right size. I'm 5'7", 125 lbs (think ballerina body) and bought a 26. Should have bought a 25. The chart is exactly correct for me for "normal" sizing.
I had a hard time with the rating since these jeans did not fit. I am 5’2” and 122# but most of my weight is in my thighs. I ordered a 25 based on waist and hip measurements. The camo fabric didn’t have much stretch so they were too tight for my thighs. The hip and waist would have fit fine if I could have pulled them all the way up...lol. Based on that I couldn’t size up. I emailed customer service and asked their opinion. They also recommended I didn’t size up but recommended trying a pair of regular denim because it’s a stretchier fabric. I returned the Jane Cargo and ordered another pair. Customer service was AWESOME!
Ordered in my typical 28 (5'5", 150lbs, 41" hip) and they fit perfect. Love the fit if these, higher rise, not skin tight. Please, please, please make these in other washes!
I have been buying jeans from Fran Denim for five years and this is my favorite pair yet! They are sooo comfy and stylish. I was worried I'd have to sit out the wide-leg jeans trend and I am so excited to find these. More like this, please!!
These are the most comfortable, softest, most perfectly-fitting piece of clothing I have ever owned. They took a wearing or two to break in, but now I look forward to putting these on in the morning. I have several other pairs of Fran Denim and love them all, but these are something special.
After considering off and on for about 6 months, I finally made the jump to try Fran Denim when my previous go-to jeans ripped at the back pocket. I'm so glad that I tried them! These jeans are so comfortable and fit great! They don't require a belt to keep them in place, and they fit great around my waist and hips. The length is great too...I'm 5'4" and they hit right at my ankles. I think I'll probably try a skinny dark wash next =)
Height: 5' 4"
Waist: 28.5 inches
Hips: 39 inches
Size purchased: 27
I loved these, no gapping at the waist, enough room for my quads and butt. Id buy more if they had them in different washes!
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!!!
First pair of Fran denim. Huge mountain biker and lifter. They fit like a dream and I would like more colors in this exact fit and length!
They fit like a glove! I was so happy to slip them on and feel the stretch and comfort as well as support.
These shorts are worth the money! I have always struggled with finding shorts and these fit like a dream. They are fitted through the leg, but the stretch is amazing and they’re very comfortable and lightweight. I normally wear a size 6 in jeans and bought the 27 based on the size chart. For reference I’m 5’6, 150 lb
Fit great love them
