Love these jeans!! Fit like a glove!Will have to order another pair because I want to wear these everyday :)
I have always had thick legs and a booty and as my fitness journey has progressed they have gotten bigger so I have had soo much trouble trying to find jeans that fit and are comfortable. I’m am so happy to have found these!
I was on the search for the best fitting skinny jean and a friend recommended I try Fran... I have to say they are the best I've tried and I've tried a lot of brands. They stay where they are supposed to stay! I would def size down one size from where you measure on the size chart. Based off the measurements I was a "27", But I bought a 26 and they are perfect. Sucks your waist right in like built in spanx. I have more of a runners build so my legs aren't built as some and they still work great for me. I'm 5'6" and weigh 144. I use them for date nights to riding my horses. Can't wait to buy more.
I love fran denim jeans! This is my 4th pair and the only jeans I wear. I'm in size 31 at 5'5", 165 pounds.
I absolutely love these jeans! I will never find another brand that fits my body the way these jeans fit! I also really like how I don't feel constricted when I move and don't have to constantly pull them up!
I'm 5'4", 132 pounds with a 30.5 inch waist.
Significantly smaller than two other Fran jeans in same size. Great quality and color. Wish sizes were more consistent
New customer, sick of ‘normal’ jeans - will DEF be buying more! So comfy, look fantastic!!
I purchased the Nicole High Rise Skinny jeans in a size 28 as I normally wear a size 6. They were just a tad too loose so I returned them and got a 27. They fit like a glove! I am 5'6" and 133 lbs. You won't be disappointed!
I am 5'5" and 138 pounds, with large thighs, 30" waist and 39" hips. I bought the medium wash Nicole jeans in size 28. I will say that the color was a bit darker than the photos indicate, as the wash was really somewhere between medium and dark. These jeans fit really, really well, with plenty of room for my legs and butt, and a high enough rise that I don't have to keep pulling them up, even after sitting down. The ratio of stretch to support is perfect, as they are snug, but still very comfortable. My only issue was that I do still have a small waist gap in the back, but nothing like the huge gaping pocket of denim that "normal" jeans give me. I liked them so much, I ordered two more pair!
I’m 5’9 and 170 pounds. I ordered size 31 based off I already have two pairs of shorts and one pair of jeans in that size and I love the fit and the fact that they were American made. So I ordered a couple more assuming they would be the same. I should have done my research because the Nicole is not American made. And the fit and quality doesn’t feel the same as my other 3 pairs. I still like them, but not as much as my other pairs, which I LOVE. Regardless, I love that this brand offers jeans that actually fit and look good and I hope they continue to restock other styles in the “larger” sizes. Also shipping was super fast. :)
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
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 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.
These pants are well structured with stretch. I'm 5'3, 185lbs, 32" waist, 51" hips and each thigh is 30". I ordered the 32". They fit my butt and thighs exceptionally well. They were gapping in the waist like every pair of pants do, but you could see my butt crack so that was an immediate no for me lol. I also felt like they were more of a straight leg in the calf/ankle area... and not a skinny at all. I wanted to love them. My thighs were accommodated in a pair of jeans for the first time in YEARS. I'll try another fit next.
I'm 5'6" and 130-135 lbs. Despite the fact that apparently it's the pop culture aim to have an "itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face" -- jeans are NOT made for thin girls with big butts. I bought these on a whim — my other jeans are getting old, and autumn is here, and I just thought, "why not try this brand I've never heard of?" They arrived quickly, and once I slipped the 27s on, and it was pure joy. I couldn't believe it. They're COMFORTABLE. I never felt this way about jeans before. Anytime I'd get something that was comfortable in my hips, they'd slide down my waist. Anytime I'd get something that fit my waist, my thighs felt like they were on fire. These exist!
The best part? I now get to give away my mediocre-fitting jeans -- which gives me a heck a lot room in my pants drawer!
These jeans are awesome! I have a short, narrow waist and bigger hips and thighs and jeans slide ride down or are uncomfortably tight in the waist to keep them on…Fran Jeans fit amazing and feel good on and stay up perfectly!!
I ordered the April Super High Rise in a medium wash, size 28 and they are the most comfortable jeans I own, though I felt like they were a tad too loose around the waist. Thus, when I ordered a second pair on the Dark Wash, I went with a size 27. I can get them over the hips and zipped, but they're definitely on the tighter side! I love the way they look and the fit is almost perfect on a low-carb, bloat-free day. I've kept them as my "goal pants" in hopes that they become a more appropriate fit in the next month or so. I'm not sure if the sizing varies between washes or if I truly am just in between sizes.
5'9", 164lbs, 29" waist, 43" hips
I'm 5'6" 136 and I love the way these jeans fit!! So does my husband!! I'm wearing size 28.
I am 5'7" and 135lb. I wasn't sure whether to size up or down, but I have pretty narrow hips so I went with a 26. My legs have NEVER properly fit into jeans. I've been an athlete my whole life and had just resigned myself to pants never fitting properly. These pants honestly fit me like a glove. They loosen a bit, so the recommendation to have them fit snug at first is spot on, but they don't completely loosen. In the past I feel like jeans have fit for a day and then just gone all saggy if I sat for a while or walked - basically if I did anything. These stay tight and flattering no matter whether I bike, walk, squat, whatever. The stretch is great too. I am so psyched I finally went for it with these!
Love Fran Denim jeans! I’m small waisted with bigger thighs n glutes and finally a pair of jeans that fit. 5’4” and 109… size 24. Great since I’m lifting and getting stronger and now great fitting jeans!💗👍
A little baggy in the rear. Slightly higher waist than I was expecting. Was hoping for more of a mid-rise cut. I am 5’6” and 155 pounds.
I love the feel of these jeans and the fact that they fit perfectly in the booty, legs and waist. My hubby loves them too! ;) My only wish is that they came in a short version. I'm 5'1" and have to roll them up to not be socks too. Maybe make short lengths for us that are vertically challenged? 5'1', 130 lbs size 28.
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.
Love the way these jeans fit.
Well made jeans that fit my hips and waist perfectly!!
I’m 5’2” and 125 lbs and wear a 24. The fit is great. Waist fits, thighs still a little tight but if I go up in size then there is extra fabric in front.
The only reason is not full stars 1: I had to cut the ankles of because I couldn’t fit my foot through the stitched opening (I wear a size 6 shoe, my feet are not big) 2: the medium wash is the same exact color as my Eva crop distressed dark wash jeans. I was hoping for lighter. Photo is to show color of jeans.
These fit like a dream and I always get compliments when I wear them. I'm 5'4" and 175 pounds. Both the 31" and 32" fit.
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’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!
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
Stats: 5'5", 129 lb, BMI 22, waist 29", hips 39", thigh 22", 55 yo grandmother. Purchased size 26 Ellen Flare Dark Wash jeans based on model measurements, customer comments, and size chart. Stretchy jean of excellent quality. Back waist gap is non-existent. Does not inhibit range of motion.
If you follow the size chart, you should get perfect fit. I am 5’8”, and wish these were longer.. but I’ll wear them with flats. Fran denim is the first pair of jeans I can wear without having the waist altered!! High Five!
Very comfortable, you dont have to worry about plumbers crack when squatting. Plenty of stretch for muscular legs and glutes. I only wish they had longer inseams around 34” (size 27) as im 5’ 6” 140lbs. Need longer inseams for bootcut styles, they have a few for skinny leg styles. These were around 32”- 33” inseam. The other brand of bootcut I bought were even shorter for my liking so had to return them. Otherwise these jeans would be perfect.
I'm 5'5 and 140lbs. These arrived yesterday and they fit! The inseam was not too long for me - it was perfect. I ordered a size 28, my waist fit the measurements for 27 and my hips fit the measurements for 29. No waist gap was the nicest surprise!
Finally - jeans that fit! In addition to big ass and thigh - I had a long torso, so the high waisted is great!
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!
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.
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!
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 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.
The jeans are a perfect fit for my daughter’s athletic build. Thank you, Fran Denim!!!
I’m 5’9” with a 29” waist and 42” hips and ordered a size 28. I was surprised by how well these fit. I had about a 2 second worry they wouldn’t go up but they slid on and zipped easy peasy. I may be able to get away with a 27 but I kind of like the extra room. I love how they look and while I never thought I could use “jeans” and “comfortable” in the same sentence, MY GOD THESE JEANS ARE ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I can bend, lounge, move and am not constantly having to pull them up to make sure my butt hasn’t fallen out. Total win. Will be buying more pairs in different washes.
LOVE THESE. I am a 29 waist with a 31 hip/thigh. The size 30 fit perfectly with no gap. They do not fit as tight as they look on the model.. thankfully.
THANK YOU Fran Denim for making these shorts -- they fit great! I'm slender, but I'm a runner with very muscular thighs which makes finding pants and shorts that fit a real pain. I wear a 25, and am 5'7" and 125 lbs. The high waist design fits me well; the mid-rise is too snug around the waist for me.
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
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.
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 😃
I love these!! I’ve always wanted a pair of cutoffs that fit loose in the legs but they are always tight because of my quads and booty. These fit just like I wanted in the legs and waist at the same time! I am 5’7,160lbs (4 months postpartum, about 10lbs over pre-baby weight but got the same size as my other Fran shorts). Size 28. Will purchase these same pair again if they make more colors!
I was nervous to buy these without any reviews, but I'm so glad I took a chance on them. As with all my Fran Denim jeans and shorts, these fit perfectly and have no waist gap! For reference, I'm 5'6 and about 140 lbs. I usually wear a small or size 4 bottom, and the size 26 Frans fit perfectly.
I sized up to a 30 (typically a 29) like what was recommended but they are a tad big. Better than too tight! Fantastic quality. I’ll be purchasing another pair for sure. I’m 5’7.5” and 165 lbs
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!
The jeans are great, super stretchy, very comfortable, and they don't squeeze and flatten my hips/thighs like most do. However, they are too big. I went by the sizing chart: My hips actually aligned with size 31, my waist with size 30. I went with size 30 to avoid the bunchy waist that you often get with high waist pants that aren't sized correctly. Turns out, I should have gone with size 29, as the waist is still much too big and bunches up, also leaving a small gap. For reference: I am 5'8'' and 170 lbs.
This, however, will not deter me from wearing these pants or buying others; I think I will just size down on the next order. Still very much a fan of the company, brand, and product.
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 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!
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 :)
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 fit great and are super comfortable. I wish I had sized down 1 size because they do stretch out quite a bit. I also would love to see this same style but with a finished edge at the ankle. Every time I wear them I have to cut off the frayed bits. The shipping was very fast and the customer service was fantastic. Will purchase from them again for sure!
