As an athlete, specifically a lifter, it’s been tough to find jeans, until now! I’m 5’5” and 150lbs, so the 28 and 29 Sarah mid rise is a perfect fit. Will be buying more.
I love these jeans. I normally wear a size 32 or 33 to fit my legs and butt, but then the waist is too big.
I wear a size 30 in Fran Denim: The first time I put them on, I got the familiar panic when I pulled them over the hips, because they felt too tight, until I got them to the waist and realized they fit PERFECTLY!! I own 7 pairs now.. Love them
I’m 5’5” 165 lbs , thick legs and butt with a small waist
I wear size 30 with 30 inseam
Once again my new favorite jeans. Have 4 pair now and love every pair. As my body adds muscle these jeans adapt! Thank you making an awesome product.
I love these jeans. The dark wash can be dressed casual or dolled up. As a mom of 3, I'm all about the functional fit.
I have been considering ordering from Fran Denim for a long time after seeing your ads on Instagram. I was a little off on my first two choices with either size or style, but I finally got it right with the Sarah Mid Rise Skinny Dark Wash! I am 5'4" and 145 pounds. I ordered a size 30. This may be the first pair of jeans I have never had to have altered in the waist. So happy!
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!
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.
Significantly smaller than two other Fran jeans in same size. Great quality and color. Wish sizes were more consistent
New customer, sick of ‘normal’ jeans - will DEF be buying more! So comfy, look fantastic!!
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.
It's hard to find jeans that actually fit. They are soft and fit "right"
I'm 5'6 185lbs size 32
For reference I am 5’2” 115 lbs and bought size 24. I have the Nicole high rise in this size and it fits perfectly. Unfortunately the Sarah mid skinny black tends to stretch out in the waist and is slightly tighter on my thighs, resulting in them riding down all day. Maybe I just need to stick to high rise, but it seems the fit is just a little different from other styles. Still ok but not as great as my other pair!
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.
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
I am normally a size 28 in jeans (I'm 5'7", 155lb, 29" high waist, 31" waist at belly button, 40" booty) and this also fits the Fran sizing. Because of the recommendation on the website to size up for the black Julie jeans, I ordered a 29. After wearing them once, they are baggy on the waist! I wish I had ordered the correct size 28. I also ordered another pair of jeans from Fran in size 28 and they fit perfectly. So if you size yourself to fit properly, I do not recommend going one size up for these black jeans.
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.
59 yr old woman, 5’4”, 127#.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!!
New favorite jeans
Jeans and I have been enemies for as long as I remember. I am 4’11 and 3/4” and 125 pounds. I play volleyball, run and lift regularly. My lower half is all muscle but because I’m petite in size most jeans the waist size I need don’t fit my thighs. I enjoy leggings but I’m more of a hoodie and jean girl when not at work. At work I usually opt for dresses because they fit better but the cold windy winters are not dress friendly. I splurged on these jeans and went a size up because I don’t have time to send something back. The 27 fit fine for a little while but ultimately became too saggy. So I reordered these in a 26 and wear them at least twice a week. I’m sooo in love with these jeans.
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.
Everything I was looking for! Great fit! I am 5'11'', 147 lbs. I got them in a 28 Tall and they are the perfect length and fit.
The HelenLong Skinny Medium Stone are my fifth pair of Fran Denim’s and I love each pair! I’m 5’2” and 112lbs. I ordered the 24 and they fit perfectly!
Love these jeans
I am 5’9 130# size 25
At first I thought I ordered too small as they were very tight in the waist
After a few wears the size was perfect
The jeans are long I have to cuff them slightly
I have a bubble butt and muscular thighs not as big as girls in photos but these pants fit great
Love the feel of these jeans and I feel confident they will stay up. Definitely recommending them to all my athletic friends cause it's nice not feeling my calves and thighs constricted while still keeping my jeans from sliding down without a belt. My only issue is I wish there were more long inseam options.
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!
Love the fit of these jeans. The fabric feels like a good quality, not flimsy, and they hold their form well after a few days of wearing. I just wish there were more colors! 5’9” 170, size 29 fit great.
I love these jeans! And the low rise were not binding, and so very comfortable!
I'm 5'7" and around 154#. I purchased a 28 and 29 in both colors. I ended up going with the 29 in both colors because of the length and more "coverage" when bending over (I mean, they are low rise jeans...). FYI, the lighter wash runs smaller than the darker wash. I could have easily worn either 28 or 29 in the dark wash, but I couldn't even get the light wash 28's on.
When I decided to buy these jeans I was a little nervous because I'm 5'1, 140lbs and had to go by the height/weight chart because my measurements didn't match. I went with a size 29 and they fit perfectly around my thighs. I love how they look and feel. Only thing I wish is they were a tad shorter but I just folded them at the bottom and it looked super cute. I just bought another pair of jeans yesterday!
The reason for 4/5 is that these jeans are not very low rise. They are more like mid-rise. No waist gap as promised though! I love them, just not low rise as advertised. They do start to stretch out a little bit even day one so they start pretty snug. I am 5'3 and 130 pounds with a big booty and muscular thighs. Size 28 fits perfectly, 27 was too small. I ordered both and returned the 27s.
I'm 5'2 and 130 pounds and order a size 27. At first I didn't think I got a big enough size bc they were super tight at first. But after wearing them for 5 min and doing some squats (which they didn't fall off my butt like other low rises) I realized they fit really well!
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.
The jeans are a perfect fit for my daughter’s athletic build. Thank you, Fran Denim!!!
Wife looks amazing!! But then she always does!! She loves your pants and shorts!!!
These jeans make you feel some kind of way. They fit so nicely and are SO flattering. I still need to wear a belt but the size fit nicely in the quads and butt. I’m 5’2 and 160 and ordered a 30. Can’t wait to buy another pair.
These fit great! I’ve wanted to order a pair for a while and I am so happy I did. I will only order jeans from here now!
5’2” and 135lbs. The 27 was too tight in thighs and butt for these pants. I have a pair of the dark wash in the same cut and a 27 was perfect. With a simple return, I received the 28 and am very happy with the fit. I would recommend buying a size up in the black denim. Only given a 4 out of 5 because of the return.
I love these jeans! My jeans always pulled down when I sat due to muscular thighs. I didn't realize how great my Fran Denim jeans were until I wore my old jeans after the Fran Denim purchase. I have to adjust the old ones every time I stand up!! I'm restocking with ALL Fran Denim from now on. I am 5'4" 165 and wear a 30. They fit great!
These pants look great, feel wonderful and I get compliments all the time. Make them in other prints and I will buy some more.
Absolutely love the fit and function of these jeans.
Love the fit but they took a month to arrive .
The jeans are great, super stretchy, very comfortable, and they don't squeeze and flatten my hips/thighs like most do. However, they are too big. I went by the sizing chart: My hips actually aligned with size 31, my waist with size 30. I went with size 30 to avoid the bunchy waist that you often get with high waist pants that aren't sized correctly. Turns out, I should have gone with size 29, as the waist is still much too big and bunches up, also leaving a small gap. For reference: I am 5'8'' and 170 lbs.
This, however, will not deter me from wearing these pants or buying others; I think I will just size down on the next order. Still very much a fan of the company, brand, and product.
These are so cute on! They’re not AS tight as my other Fran jeans in the same size but they look like they’re suppose to fit that way because of the camo print. They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. For reference I’m 5’4”, about 140lbs with a short torso and longer legs. I wear a 29 in Fran shorts and a 27 in Fran jeans comfortably. These are a little long but I could get away with cuffing the bottoms or not.
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!
