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!
My Granddaughter loved these so much I had to buy her 2 more pair!
I myself have 2 pair... We both love them!
So originally I ordered a size 30 and they fit great but was not as snug above the butt. Exchanged for size 29 and they fit amazing! I’m actually going to order another pair because they feel so good on. I might even size down one more since I’m trying to loose weight and they do loosen up a little after wearing them for a while. I’m 5’2 148-150lbs. They are definitely pricey, but so worth it! It’s better to have jeans that feel good, and look good than several cheap ones are uncomfortable and not flattering.
I first heard about Fran Demin on Instagram, and I wasn't sure if the cut was going to be for me. But, I've always been thicc through the thighs, and have had to size up in the past for that reason. And THEN I saw that they offered a petite flare jean, which I've been looking for forever. I'm 5'3" and the 30" inseam is perfect! They just barely graze the ground in the back with flats and look super cute with heels, too. I wasn't sure what size to order because I was in-between on both the measurement and height/weight charts, and I reached out to customer support. They got back to me, made a sizing recommendation and they fit PERFECTLY. These are totally worth the price tag.
Finally, jeans for ladies who lift!
This was my first Fran Denim purchase- I have 28” waist, 39.5 inch hips and 24.5 thighs- athletic build- these jeans in size 27 give the perfect stretch for my high level of movement even outside of the gym. More impressively still, they stay right in place! Furthermore, They do not loose shape by end of day- These jeans are awesome! I can get more done since I’m not spending any time adjusting my happy, jeans, and belt- I will be purchasing more! Thank you for a practical, dependable, product that compliments my angles and truly makes my day-
I ordered according to website recommendations (28) & had to exchange for a 31, which was fairly easy. Customer service reached out to me, to make sure the 31s would fit all my measurements. I’m Native American & an ice hockey goalie, so the 28s wouldn’t even go on over my 25 inch quads. The 31s fit perfectly! The waist is loose enough to tuck a shirt in comfortably, if I want, but not enough to slide down or gap at all. I got the flares so I don’t know if I’d have a problem with my 16 inch calves in the skinny jeans or not. The denim thickness & the super sturdy zipper are superior to FitJeans (their largest size was tighter than compression leggings & those were a nightmare to return; I had to file an application & wait for it to be approved). I’m 5ft 2, weight 162, with a 30 inch waist & 42 in hips (glutes), for additional reference.
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!!!
