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 5'7' and weigh 138lbs and the size 27 fit perfectly. I am so happy I took a chance and purchased these, the fit is amazing!
I measured according to the guide and ended up with a perfect fit. I'm thrilled to finally have pants with no waist gap. They look great and also feel great.
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 to return mine because I bought the wrong size (my fault) but I was also surprised to find that they were more like jeggings than jeans. If Fran Denim has other jeans that aren't as elastic, maybe those would be better.
I love the fit but the black jeans collect a lot of lint.
These jeans fit great. I am 5’7” 145lbs and ordered a 26. I also wear the Nicole in a 25, I ordered a size up in this pair after reading reviews and agree they fit a little tighter than my other pairs. Only negative thing I can say about these jeans is you need to lint roll but that’s a small price to pay for jeans that fit well.
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.
Finally jeans that fit around my quads and butt BUT THEN GO BACK IN to fit around my hips and waist, not gap out like every other pair of jeans! Also I can squat down in them without my crack showing 😜 Very comfortable
The jeans are a little tooo high waisted for my liking. But I can definitely feel the room in thighs and butt. Ready to try another style soon!
5’5” 165lbs size 29
I'll never ever spend money on cheap jeans. Just take my money!!!! Best jeans! Booty cute all day!
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!
This is my 4th pair of Fran Denim and I am in love once again! I am 5ft 8in and weight around 160 and the size 28 fits like a glove!
I have had such a hard time buying jeans that fit my waist and legs. A pair that might fit my waist, I can barely get over my legs and hips but these are perfect! I am 5ft 2in, 135 pounds and I got a size 28. I might have been able to get away with a 27.
Fran is my go to denim! At 5'2", 150 lbs, muscular build..these are the only jeans that give my thighs room, look great on my butt and come in a short enough length! No sliding down, no waist gap, comfy to sit and bend in. Worth every penny. I'd go a size or 2 smaller than what you tape at. My waist is 30" at belly button I ordered 28, fits perfect.
Finally! A pair of jeans that fit EVERYWHERE. I'm 5'3" 147 lbs and purchased a size 28. Roomy in the calves, thighs and rear and no gap in the waist. I will be replacing all of my jeans with Fran jeans.
I sized down to the 26 (5'4", size 4/6) and they fit perfectly everywhere. I will be ordering more. The length on my frame is perfect: no scrunching at the bottom. The waist stays tight and they make my thighs look good. I'm really happy with them!
On this mid-rise, I found the zipper to be a little long for my 5'0" frame, but the fit is gorgeous.
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
Emma Long Inseam High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
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
We finally found a Jean company that fits the quads, waist and long length needed! Great stretch too.
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
For the first time I have pants that fit everywhere!
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.
I'm 5'5 153lbs, and I normally wear a size 10. The 30's fit me perfectly after getting them hemmed. They are super flattering and don't sag off my hips even after wearing them for a couple days, which is a major problem I have with most of my pants. I'd highly recommend them to anyone with a curvy shape.
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!
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 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!
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 the super high waist of these! I am a 28 in Nicoles but found that I should have gotten a 27 in the April. I am going to wash and machine dry once to see if that helps. LOVE THEM THO!
I’m 5’ 10”, 155lbs. 31” waist and 41” hips. I ended up ordering a size 26. I found the size 27 to be just slightly less snug in the waist area, and I love to feel some compression in my waist with my clothing. Also, based on other reviews, I knew they would stretch out a bit, and I didn’t want to risk them not fitting after wearing them a while. The 26 fit perfectly in the medium wash!
For the first time in my entire life, I can finally wear a pair of jeans without a belt! Before Fran Denim, jeans would always slide down my backside when bending over (hence, the need for a belt).
Now, my thick thighs and small waist each feel like they have their own place in my jeans. Fran Denim jeans move with my body and hug every single inch of me. And for the first time, I feel like I can’t wait to put jeans on!
Note: the April Super High Rise Medium Wash is made from different material than the dark wash. The dark wash jeans are slightly less stretchy. I even have a harder time getting my size 10 feet back out. Haha. I am a size 26 in the medium wash and a size 27 in the dark wash.
I’m 5’6, about 130lbs and a size 25 fit perfectly. One thing I will mention is that the zipper has to be pointed toward the floor flat so that it won’t unzip, but I’m really impressed with the stretchy-ness and the overall quality of the jeans! I can tell they’re going to hold up and last me a long time! Thanks Fran Denim! :)
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!
I love them, they fit well and are comfortable! I am tall and curvy.
5'9", 180lbs, received size 28
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!
I purchased these pants bc they were funky and named after me! They are my second pair of pants and I love them! Highly recommend! Rock the acid wash!
I fell in love with the acid wash look the moment I saw these jeans (let's be real: they took me back to the 90's!), but I was a little skeptical of the super high rise because I'm only 5' 6" and very short waisted. However, they are perfect! This is my 4th pair of Fran jeans, and I think I'll never buy from another brand again. The colors are great, and they never bleed, even right out of the bag. I wear them to work and look good, and they tuck perfectly into ankle boots. I'm 5' 6", 150 pounds, 32" inseam, and wear a 28.
I've always struggled with jeans that fit my curves + my muscular thighs. These jeans totally fit the bill. The acid wash is awesome as well - I've gotten lots of compliments.
I have wide hips + musclar bum and thighs. Height - 5'7, weight around 190-200. I ordered the 32 and they fit perfectly (a little loose after a few days of wear).
The length is also perfect which is nice - (typically regular lengths are too short and longs are too long for me).
The only feedback I'd give is to consider larger sizes, too. I wear the largest size you make. There are plenty of muscular folx who fit your market outside of the size range you offer.
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. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
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
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!!!
Job well done!! I have never found a pair of jeans that fit perfect feel soft and make my ass look great. Hands down best pair of jeans I have ever purchased. I have thick thighs and a peach to along with it so finding jeans is hard. Either they’re too loose and I look like I’m wearing guys jeans or I can’t even fit my legs in them. Thank you! thank you!, for designing jeans for athletes!!! Not just skinny girls who say they workout. Will definitely be purchasing more. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
These are true to what they advertise. There’s no waist gap. They stay up. They make my lower body look AMAZING. I am sincerely amazed and thrilled with these and I look forward to buying more. I’ve been showing them off and giving reviews on Facebook and recommending them to everyone ❤️
I have been eyeing Fran Denim for a while and SO happy I finally ordered my first pair! I am 5'8.5",148 lbs, and typically a size 6/27. I ordered a 27 and at first thought maybe I should size up, primarily because the waist is a bit tight. However after 2nd try on (not even wear) I can tell that the reviews about allowing them to be a bit tight at first are right - definitely sticking with this size as they have plenty of stretch and are already comfortable. FD is everything that athletic ladies have been raving about.. it feels nice to know that most jeans are made wrong - not me/my body ;) THANK YOU!! ***PS PLEASE make Nicole high rise in BLACK with destruction/distressing!!***
Love these jeans! They are comfortable, they fit perfect!!!
