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.
