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
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!
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
I am 5’6 ish, and fluctuate between 138 and 148, but usually close to 142. Waist 27, hips 40, quads 20ish. Even before lifting I struggled with finding pants that fit my hip to waist ratio, because of that I ordered a 26. I’m a little fluffier right now because of thanksgiving and an injury, so these are pretty tight, but fit well, and NO waist gap (I think that’s a first for me). After a day of wearing they have stretched a bit, but not to the point of being baggy. Anticipating being away from the gym for awhile I ordered a 27, but I’m hanging on to the 26s for when I’m able to get back after it.
I was skeptical of paying this much for jeans but seriously seriously so worth it.
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
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
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.
They're still my favorite jeans! I can do anything in them.
I now have 3 pair of fran denim. And I love them. They fit perfect for the athletically built lady.
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.
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’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 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.
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!
Love the high waist and room for my big legs! This is the only brand I can wear a “skinny” look and still have plenty of room for a sexy snug, but comfortable fit.
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!!!
(For reference, I am 6'5", 185 lbs, and I almost always wear a size 12 or 32 jeans. I ordered the size 30, tall inseam jean from Fran and it fit great. I ordered other tall styles in the size 29 and size 30 and the size 29's were too tight in all styles) I have been looking for some good skinny jeans for a long time! Usually they are too low cut, making it hard to keep my bottom covered when sitting/bending or too tight in the legs or too dingy washed. These are the perfect jeans for my overly tall body. They are not as long as my legs, but they hit in a flattering place, the waist sits in a comfortable spot while also holding in my belly, and the butt looks great! I tried 6 pairs from two different companies, and this was my only keeper!
I have spent my whole life trying to find jeans that fit my athletic legs, but not too big around waist. AND also be long enough for this 6 ft gal! These are them🙌🏼 One of my fav purchases this year.
First time buying Fran Denim and love these jeans. I'm 5'2" about 155 w/ big quads and glutes from lots of weightlifting. Bought the size 30. So grateful that the crop are actually ankle length for me. I was worried that the high rise would feel too high, but they don't; they hit just below my belly button. They did feel snug when I first put them on but have the perfect amount of stretch. I bought two Kay petite styles, too, and like them. But I have the feeling that I could just live in the Ella Crop jeans all day every day.
I have hated jeans for a long time and couldn’t understand the hype around jeans. Turns out that was because they didn’t ever fit me properly! These jeans fit my legs and waist and are stretchy and wonderful! I don’t have to pull them up constantly because there’s no waist gap! Highly recommend!
It's so hard to find jeans that are long enough, let alone are comfortable. These jeans are fantastic, I will definitely purchase another pair!
