These fit great through the waist and hips, they are a little snug over the thighs, but too tight for my liking over my calves. I feel like the size chart is accurate. I ordered a 28 and normally wear a 6-8 in jeans. I’m returning this pair.
I am 6 feet tall and ridiculously short-waisted, so I need a really, really high rise like 13" to 14" to have the waist not hit my hip bones. Although these jeans ultimately were too short in the rise to keep, the hips and thighs in both the 27 and 28 fit like a dream and the fabric was just thick and stretchy enough to smooth and look amazing. The customer service was amazing with multiple exchanges to try to find a good fit and quick return shipping and refunds. If you get a super high rise long inseam, I will be back and buy every color, because I'm not giving up the deadlifts or the squat rack.
I am 5'10, 155 lbs, and wear a size 27. I normally need a 33 inseam for all my jeans. These jeans fit perfectly and are the perfect length.
Unfortunately my first attempt at sizing was a bust but it's only because I didn't read the details well enough! re-ordered and cannot wait to get them back!
I just bought my first pair of jeans from Fran- I Love Them!! The best part is there is enough room for my butt & thighs yet a smaller waist so they stay up!
