It feels beyond weird to pull on jeans that actually fit my legs. And to be able to wear them more than once without them being stretched out to the point of not looking good. AND they actually feel sturdy like jeans should. They have stretch, but they aren’t jeggings. They hold you very nicely. I did need to get them hemmed, but I’m 4’10” so that’s normal for me. Overall DEFINITELY worth the money and would buy again.
FINALLY!!! Finally there's a pair of jeans that doesn't gap at the waist!! And fit me like a glove everywhere. So thankful I found these jeans, no more belt for me! I'm 5'5", 123 lbs with muscular legs and size 26 fits perfectly. I initially tried sizing down like many of the reviews recommended and they were too sung at the seam where the waist band met the body of the jean.
I really want to love these jeans and I don't want to leave a negative review, but I do want to be completely honest. I'm 5' 4" and weigh 125lbs. I'm a runner, fitness coach, spin instructor and very athletic. I inquired about what size I should buy and it was suggested I go with a 26 so that's the size I purchased. I feel like the jeans look good and my mom complimented me, but they just don't feel very comfortable at all. They feel so stiff and after a few hours I just can't wait to take them off. I thought after wearing them several times they would have loosened up a bit to feel more comfy, but they haven't. Oddly enough they feel most uncomfortable at the croch; the jeans look normal but every time I walk I feel them gathering between my legs and it's uncomfortable. I also didn't realize that they're hang dry only until after I washed and dried them. My fault for not looking first, but I'm a busy mom of two and 99% of my clothing can go in the dryer so I didn't even think about it. They feel like they've shrunk slightly and now I'm not sure if I'll end up wearing them often or at all at this point. Again, I really don't want to be negative, but after a few months of wanting to try this brand they just didn't live up to my expectations 🤷♀️
After reading many reviews on sizing I choose Size 28 and they fit great. According to the size chart I would have been Size 29 or 30, but reviewers recommended sizing down which I agree with after having them on. These are a buy again jean. I weigh 150 lbs and 5’4.
These jeans look really classy and could easily be dressed up or down. They are incredibly comfortable and were more snug in the waist and roomy in the butt and thigh area. I ordered size 27 based on the measurement chart, but by the end of the day they were too baggy. I think its smart to go down one size from your regular jean size. I am athletic and bigger in the butt and thighs but more lean muscle not bulky like a weight lifter. I am 5'5 127 lbs and my measurements are waist 26.5' and hips 38' for reference. For these measurements I would try size 25 (I am 26 in most regular jeans so I ordered these too big to begin with).
Love the fit and look of these! Always struggled to find pants given my powerful rear and thighs. Only drawback is the dye of the jeans rubs off on my hands - common with dark wash though!
My first order fit perfectly around my curves and small waste.
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
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
Love the fit of Fran denim on my waist, glutes, thighs and calves. These pants have a mid rise which looks cool. Stretch a bit after wearing but still look good. I'm 5'5" and 160 and in a 29
Great jeans! No waist gap! I am 5'6 130# and I bought a size 26. Waist fits perfectly. Upper thigh and butt aren't fitted quite as much as I would like but the jeans still look very nice on. More squats should do the trick!
Obsessed with these jeans. Such a flattering and perfect fit!
I love these mid rise jeans. I don't have the body shape to wear high rise jeans & a cropped tops (mom of 3; no one needs to see that!) these are the perfect fit and function. 5'7" , size 28.
I’m 5’5” hourglass and love these jeans! No gap in the back. Denim is super comfortable. Stretch makes everything fit nicely but not too much that is gets saggy.
Love the red accent stitching on the black jeans.
High quality and perfect fit for thick thighs and a booty!
Kay Petite Skinny Dark Wash
Finally a pair of jeans for us shortys who lift!! Literally the perfect pair of jeans! I immediately ordered another pair.
I can’t believe how soft and “worn in” these jeans already feel! I was nervous, based on some reviews that said they were stiff and uncomfortable but that is definitely not my experience. I had a hard time with sizing but ended up with a 27, at 5’ tall, 123 lbs. I might have been able to pull off a 26 but the risk wasn’t worth exchanging. They are the perfect length for my short legs!
This is my third pair of Fran denim jeans. I absolutely love the fit and they are super comfortabLe. I have gotten rid of all my other brands of jeans since discovering Fran denim.
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
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.
I was very worried about buying jeans online but after receiving my first pair of Fran Denims, I understood why they are so highly rated. They are so comfortable & flattering. I will be buying more. I'm 5'3" & around 130 lbs - size 26 fits perfectly.
I am usually a size 6 in pants. The occasional 8 and the occasional 4. I purchased a size 27 and while I kept them and have worn them but they are tighter than I would prefer...especially the calves. I dont have huge legs but they are thicker...maybe the 28 would have been better. A little disappointed.
Awesome fit! Rise in back us sufficient I am not playing peekaboo.
I got a pair of the "Nicole" Fran Denim jeans last year and really liked them. Based on measurements, the company suggested I get a 27. While I really liked the Nicoles, I wanted something with an even higher rise so I tried the Aprils. I sized up for just a little more give and I am absolutely in love. I can wear these jeans all day without feeling like they get too tight or the burrito I ate for lunch is making my belly too big. They flatter my big ole quads and butt, and make my stubby legs look longer. Will definitely order again.

Absolutely could not be more pleased! I ordered a second pair in black the next day to have a pair that I can wear to work- can’t wear blue jeans, but black is acceptable. I spend all day transferring and assisting patients with ADL- bending, lifting and on my knees on the floor a lot! They are as comfortable as all my high quality leggings, only they’re not leggings!
I wish they were available in tan, grey, brown-I’d buy one in every color!
You will not be disappointed!
Overall, the denim is nice. No waist gap and plenty of thigh room. For my frame, there is too much material in the thigh and front of jeans resulting in a pouch of extra fabric.
I ordered the dark denim and did not receive the dark, but instead was sent the light version. I did keep them to avoid returns.
Soft, flattering, and high quality
Fit through the waist hips and thighs was perfect, as was the rise and length, but this pair was not fitted enough for me through the knees and calves. I think a petite super skinny would be perfect. Size 29, 5’4”, 165 lbs, I carry most of my weight in my thighs.
5’4” 155lbs size 28
They stretch quite a bit when you wear them. I for sure could have sized down at least 1 size, they feel a little big once I wear them.
I am IN LOVE with these jeans! I've never found anything that fits me so well. I am so excited not to have that terrible waist gap I had just decided was inevitable. I'd love to see more options in the cropped/petite realm. I'm 5'3" 133 pounds and the 27 fit me perfectly, although still just a touch longer than I usually wear.
I was kind of nervous buying these expensive jeans but I’m a runner and I’m so tired of regular jeans not fitting. At first when I put them on I was like oh no just like the others but as you wear them they actually fit to your body. I still wear a belt to keep them up but the legs fit better. I’m 5ft. And 169
In the UK, cant find a pair of jeans without waist gap and its so frustrating! Ordered these and very impressed! Still small gap but tiny compared to other jeans. At first i had trouble choosing a size being in UK but for reference i took a 26. Im a UK size 8-10, 28" waist (smallest part) and 37" hip and im so glad i went for 26 instead of the 27. Foot holes are very small but not really a problem. Thanks Fran Denim, youve made a scottish lass very happy :) going to order the bootcut ones next as the UK seems to forget they exist haha!
They fit...no gap.... love them and they look great.
High quality and a great fit. Will buy again
It has taken me so long to find a pair of jeans that fit my glutes and thighs and don't fall off my waist. I love the fit and quality!
These fit like a glove and I will be ordering more.
Not a huge fan of “skinny” jeans so these are my compromise for the skinny look but still accommodating muscular calves. Similar to my other 4 pairs, these mold to my body in about an hour or so and feels like a second skin. I love that this brand fits my hourglass figure without waist gaps and doesn’t try to flatten my booty. Ordered in 27 with 26”W 29” at belly button 38”hips 5’7” 155. I have 26 & 27 in different styles but prefer 27 in the skinnier styles.
These are the first pair of jeans that have fit me perfectly! I have spent a lifetime buying and altering jeans.. finally got it right.
Two suggestions: 1. Black jeans 2. A little stretch would be great to keep the shape
I have not had a pair of jeans that fit well since I was in my teens. These jeans are amazing, they fit like they were custom made for me. I'm 5'5" and weigh just about 150 pounds. I used the suggested measurements of right at the belly button and the largest part of the booty which came out to 30" and 38" I do have a muscular build and went with a size 27. I love that I don't have to struggle to get them on or wear a belt to keep them up. I can't even wear my old jeans anymore because I know how comfortable I am in my Fran Denim.
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. Do it!!
I am 99% in love with these jeans. They are comfortable and flattering, but the fabric over the zipper doesn't lay flat over the zipper. It's mildly irritating, but overall I love these jeans.
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.
Love the fit
It’s been a long time since I purchased a pair of jeans I was excited to wear but as soon as I tried these on, I didn’t want to take them off. They have just enough stretch but are incredibly soft, like I’ve had them for years. I will definitely be purchasing another pair very soon. I think I am in between sizes so may try the next size down but I love how these fit straight out of the package. I’m around 133, 5’2” and purchased the size 28. It’s great to be excited to wear jeans again!
Love these jeans and they fit perfect
Was really shocked… there is no gap even when sitting and the back doesn’t pull down either, so no worries about underwear peaking at the top in the back.. great jeans!!!
The jeans fit like a glove. Just enough stretch but not to much to where I’m constantly having to pull them up by the end of the day.
Best jeans & worth the money. Very comfortable, fit my thighs and no gap.
I was really disappointed because I've loved so many other purchases. These were at least 5 inches too long and will have to be altered for me to be able to wear them.
I really like these jeans. This is my first pair if Fran Denim. They are so comfortable and very flattering. They hug in the right places without being uncomfortable. My quads, butt, and waist finally fit the same pair of jeans. I am 5'6" and 165lbs. Athletic but curvy. My measurements didn't work well with the measurement sizing guide, so I used the height/weight chart. I was in between sizes. Unfortunately I got a little nervous and ordered up rather than down. The 31's were too big and I had to exchange for 30's. The 30's fit perfectly. A little snug in the waist at first, but they loosened up after wearing a bit.
I loved them so much I ordered a second pair. I’m 5’7”, 180lbs with a booty and thick thighs. These jeans fit the curves just right and no waist gap.
I wasn't sure Fran denim was going to make a pant in my size. I'm 5'8 and 200 pounds, powerlifter, I normally wear about a 14 maybe a 16. I bought these Nora jeans in a "33", when I first got them I tried them on and was super bummed they were too tight! I then read other reviews and the website and decided to keep and wear them hoping they would stretch a little bit, and low and behold, they did! They actually fit PERFECTLY now and if I lose any weight I would actually need to size down. These are by far the best fitting jeans I've owned in a REALLY long time. I have a hard time finding jeans that fit my body shape correctly but these are amazing. I was a little put off by the price, as it's pretty darn high for a pair of jeans, but I've had them a while now and so far no fraying or stitching or anything coming loose so I think they're worth it, I'll definitely be buying more Fran denim! Highly recommend.
Looked at these for months (thanks to FB) and finally gave them a try. Ordered a 24 initially. Holy tight (5'2", 115# athletic body). Could barely get my feet through the bottom leg openings and the waist cut in horribly.... but that's what the size chart said. Exchanged them for 2 sizes up to a 26 (which was super easy, free, and fast). Keeping them, they are super good quality and love the style, but not quite as comfortable as I was hoping....but they look great on me. Hoping I didn't go too big and they stretch too much after a couple wears and washes....guess we will see!
I am so happy to finally have a pair of jeans that fit. No gap at the top making them slide down or look bunched up with a belt.
They fit my thighs and look super cute.
These jeans are exactly what I needed. I have bigger thighs naturally and from doing CrossFit, and normally I am constantly pulling my jeans up. Fran denim is a breath of fresh air!!! They stay up and I am no longer pulling them up constantly! I am 5’4” and ~155lbs. I ordered a size 29. They are snug at my waist, but the description says that’s how they should be. I would be interested in trying one size up just to see what the difference would be, but these jeans are amazing! I bought three pair!
I bought these on a whim after they continued to pop up in my suggestions on Facebook. I read reviews, and I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED. For once, I'm not pulling my jeans up constantly. They fit SO WELL. And fiancé complimented them the first time I wore them ❤ I bought 26s, I'm 5'3" and 151lbs
I have had the worst time trying to find jeans that fit properly. I ordered two pairs of Fran Denim jeans and I almost cried tears of joy when I tried them on. They fit perfectly and they are so comfortable. They have the perfect amount of room in the legs and booty with no gap in the waist. I’m 5’2” and they are the perfect length. I will definitely be buying more!
My initial jeans did not sit well on the zipper and I was able to get a replacement quickly and it was perfect!
I am 5'9" and 163lbs, and ordered a waist size 30. I have been having big issues with the fit of my normal jeans since I ramped up my weightlifting in the past 6 months. As soon as I got these pants, I could tell they were much higher quality than what I have been wearing. Since then, I have almost exclusively been wearing these jeans rather than the other pairs I have. I will say, I think I could likely go with the regular length pants in the future as these look a bit pooled at the bottom for me, though not too badly. I can also roll them with certain shoes and they look great. After one wash and around 10 wears, I am wondering as well about whether I should go with Size 29 on my next pair. Overall, a great pair of jeans and I will be buying more!
I’m 6’ with long legs, i typically buy jeans with a 36” inseam and struggle with the waist gap. I was skeptical about these jeans with “long” being 34” but based upon the model statics provided with the photo (THANK YOU) I decided to give them a try. I bought the Helen Long Skinny and they fit like they were tailored for my body! I’ve worn them 3 days in a row and the fit is still perfect - the comfort is amazing and they hold their shape perfectly. I’m back on the site to buy more!!
I love these jeans. I have long legs and a short waist, and these fit me wonderfully! I’m 5’7” and 135 pounds and I bought size 29. They are a bit long, but I would rather too long than too short, and I can hem them.
I am 5'8," 140lb, athletic build, and I bought a size 28. These fit me really great although they are quite a bit longer than I really need. Doesn't bother me though! Seems like good quality and the fit in my butt/thighs/waist is really good.
I’m 5’5” - 135 lbs. I purchased size 28 and they fit perfectly and are very flattering on my body. Very happy and will be ordering again!
I’ve looked everywhere for low rise jeans that fit (and are actually low rise). These are perfect. On the expensive side but so worth it.
Love! Finally a Real low rise! PLEASE make these in more colors and restock the lighter rinse!! I would buy in every color/rinse.
The denim looks great on and the pants are flexible, easy to move in and have no waist gap. I am 5'4" and weigh 120 lbs with an athletic build and purchased a 26. I find the inseam rides up making them not as comfortable as they could be.
First time in 5 years I've purchased jeans that fit!! And of course I couldn't try these on ahead of time, but all the great reviews sold me on taking a chance! Really glad I did. Hope you come out with more colors in low rise; and shorts!!
These are probably the best, most comfortable jeans I have ever bought. I have ALWAYS struggled with buying jeans; having a more muscular build including larger thighs and behind with a smaller waist, but these jeans fit in all the right places. There is no waist gap and they truly are squat proof. I went based on the sizing chart and it is pretty spot on, and I could have even gone one size down as they become more loose as you wear them.
These jeans are well worth it, and I will definitely be making more purchases here!!
I purchased these jeans and love them. I am 150lbs, per the size chart it said I needed a 28. I ordered a 27 based on the model size and weight and had to size down to a 26. In Madewell jeans I am a 25/26. These fit great and I have gotten lots of compliments. No gap in the back and my legs fit! They do stretch too
I just received my Ellen Flare Dark Wash and I am very pleased. They are super flattering. The legs are long for me but that is always the case for me - short legs. I am 5'6" and 150 pounds and I purchased a size 30. They fit well and are comfortable. I think they will relax a little, too, and that will make me happier.
I put these on to see how they break in and I just haven't taken them off. I have a very finicky hip that will start reacting to any clothing putting pressure in the wrong place, but so far no issues with these. I'm so excited! I never thought I'd be able to wear jeans all day again!
These are size 28 and are a comfy, relaxed fit for me after a few hours. Could probably take in the waistband an inch or two but it's not really an issue. I think I could wear 27 if I wanted them a little tighter.
These jeans are great! No back gaps fit my legs and waist
Such a great pair of jeans! They’re comfortable and fit my waiste and thighs and even the length
had a friend over that I convinced to try buy a pair of jeans from you while she was here … when they arrived it was the bedst fitted jeans she had ever tried… absolutely a success
I bought these because my legs outgrew my Old Navy jeans. These fit snug around my waist with room for my legs and no gap in the back. Could not be more pleased. I am 5'6", 191 lbs with a 34" waist. I bought a size 32.
Madisons in this wash are my favorite jeans. I have a 44.5” hip measurement and wear size 31.
They are a perfect fit and very comfortable
I ordered to long of pants and it was so simple to exchange them. Thank you
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.
