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!
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!!!
I’ve bought 2 pairs of Fran denim, I have loved both styles
Seriously, these jeans fit like they were tailored just for my body, they’re so soft and comfortable. I could wear them all day everyday!
I’ve been buying Fran denim for years! I’ve always had an athletic lower half due to soccer and never have been able to wear jeans that fit. I am 5’2”, 123lbs and wear a size 26. I prefer the crop or the petite high rise jeans.
They are good in that they do fit athletic build but are kinda thin and not the best style. They’ll work but not my favorite FD jean.I do like that they are shorter but will have to finish the bottom myself because it frays a lot with each wash.
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!
I debated returning these but ended up keeping them because they actually do fit and it’s so hard for me to find jeans that fit. I didn’t realize that they were going to be ankle-length. I’m 5’8’ 165 and the 31’s fit my waist and have room in the hips but don’t even reach my ankle. The inseam is also very long -well above belly-button. It would be great if it were an inch or two shorter in the front.
All I can say is OMG!!! I am typically not an online clothes shopper.. I've always been "hard to fit" with thicker thighs and smaller waist and going out on a limb to purchase at these prices set my anxiety on high! BUT after reading all the reviews I took the leap of faith and ordered.. YES! I'm in heaven. Hands down the most comfortable jeans I have EVER owned. Fit is perfect. Style is perfect. Quality is amazing. I am a forever customer now!!! I am 5'5-1/2" 145lbs 35-36" Hips, 28" Waist and got a size 26 and the fit is absolutely perfect. They do have stretch and are looser after wearing a while but still very comfortable and flattering.
I have 4-5 pairs of Fran and this is my favorite so far. The most comfortable and I like the inseam length. I'm 5'1'' and weigh 125 and I got the 24. Is a little more roomy than other pairs of Fran I have but I actually like that. Some of the other Frans I have are a little tighter than I'd like. They fit me fine, but I like the extra room in the mom jeans. I would love a pair that fits similarly, but isn't quite as high rise.
Fran has to be my all time favorite jeans ever. I expanded my wardrobe with the Esme mom jean, and I was not disappointed. They run a teeny bit bigger than the other styles, but still fit with room for the peach and no gap at the waist.
I've been thinking about purchasing Fran denim for a while, but the price made me hesitate. I finally bought them as a birthday present for myself, and I'm so pleased that I did! When I put these jeans on, it was truly the first time I can remember ever pulling on pants and knowing they fit exactly as they should. I have always struggled to find pants that didn't have an enormous waist gap or too-tight thighs. Even "curvy fit" pants don't accommodate my athletic build. These are wonderfully comfortable and cute, and no tugging whatsoever to get them on. I love them, and I'm looking forward to getting more.
I feel extremely meh about these jeans, which is a bummer because I have a pair of black skinnies from Fran that I absolutely adore. I got these a size bigger than my skinny jean size for a looser fit, and really they fit like skinny jeans (tight throughout the thigh) with a little loose-ness from knee down -again, that's with me sizing up enough that the waistband is a little loose/saggy on me. I'm usually more of a relaxed-fit jean wearer and was so excited to see an option from Fran in this style, but I'm pretty disappointed. The material is a very jegging-like and actually feels pretty thin/cheap compared to the skinnies I have from this same brand. Also the wash is significantly lighter on the butt vs the legs, which I think is an attempt at countouring but looks pretty obvious and pretty odd. Overall, if they weren't on sale I'd return them. The one plus is that they are super comfortable and easy to move around in. But I think I'd stick to skinny jeans in this brand from here on.
It took me a long time to decide on a pair of jeans. I decided correctly!! These are my new favorites! I now need a pair without the distressing so I can wear them to work! They fit perfectly!
I am obsessed with these jeans and they are my new favorites. I am the same measurements and height as the model, but I have the molly shorts in a size 28 so I ordered both the 27 and 28s. Both fit great (comfortable in the bum/hips and no gaping at the waist) but since these jeans have a lot of stretch I went with the 27s because I was afraid the 28s would be too loose for my liking once they stretched out. They fit me just like they fit the model. I love the high waist and these are so flattering and comfortable I have been wearing them every day that I'm not working.
Love these cute jeans! I'm 5'3" 136 lbs and wear a 27 in Fran Denim Mika petite. I ordered two sizes and found that the 26 fit me best in these because they are cut with a little more room. Really cute and comfy! Can't wait to wear these all summer!
I love these pants. The only downside is the frayed bottom. There’s no seam to stop the fray from raveling in the washer. I’ll take them to get stitched because I love my Fran!
These are the best jeans I’ve ever worn. I’m 5’5 and weigh 160. I ordered a 30.
Super comfortable but I should have sized down.
I wanted something to add to my FD collection that was not skinny jeans,
(LOVE the Nicole style) so I tried these out. I'm 5'4, 150lbs typically a 27 in FD. I ordered these in 27 and 28. The high waist is a bit weirdly high, but I've elected to keep the 28. The smaller size was just a tiny bit snug for jeans that I wanted to fit more loosely. They are definitely loose in hips/legs. I think these will be cute with all kinds of outfits, they are comfortable and the wash is great. I'd love a straight leg style with a short inseam and a waist like Nicole that does not have a raw hem. Looking forward to more styles from you FD!
I’ve only purchased jeans from Fran Denim since 2018. These are my new favorites. I’m only 4’-11” and these fit me as regular length jeans without needed hemmed, and they still fit perfectly. Love them! They are very comfy and fit me perfectly.
