Been looking for a pair of low rise shorts for years and these fit perfectly!!
I am in awe of Fran denim! This is my first purchase trying to find the perfect short for my short body that is not a mom short or a midi!
I lift and have a butt and thighs. 5’2 137lbs and was trying to replace a pair of shorts I have been wearing forever and need to retire cuz of my thighs lol. I got a 28 in these and am in love!!
The denim, while still super-stretchy, is more durable than my old shorts. Great color. I purchased a size 27 (waist is small). I'm 5' 3" 140 lbs.
I absolutely LOVE these fran denim shorts! I fold mine up because although I like the fringe, I do like clean lines, hah. Luckily, these are long enough to do so without looking like they’re too short! I’ve never owned a more comfortable pair of shorts and I’m so excited to grow my collection of fran denim!
I have always had trouble finding shorts that fit my legs and booty without a giant gap at the waist. I have been a CrossFit athlete for 3 years which has only added to the struggle. I am so glad I tried Fran Denim!! These shorts are so comfortable and fit perfectly!! The pictures don't do them justice! I'm 5' 1" 140lbs and I ordered size 28.
Get a little loose after wearing them should have sized down. The back pockets could be a little bigger but over all happy
Awesome fit! My legs don’t feel trapped these shorts are super comfortable.
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 had been on the fence to purchase these jeans, but after reading reviews and seeing pictures from real customers, I decided to buy…..super happy with my choice.
From the size chart I chose size 27 in the April jean. I have struggled since a little girl to find jeans that would not give me waist gap, but could house my booty. I’m built fairly lean but have always had a butt. Since taking up training, my butt and thighs have significantly increased. These jeans provide the perfect amount of stretch for my butt and thighs. The waist is still a bit too big, but for “bloat days”, it will be fine. I plan to purchase another pair, but in 26. For reference I’m about 5’7”, 27 waist, and 37 1/2 hip.
Definitely worth every penny!
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.
These jeans are the perfect “go to” jean. They are easy to dress up or down. They are comfortable from the minute you put them on and stay that way all day. Easy to care for and durable!
Size 29 (I like mine a little lose).
Very comfortable, good movement. Fit 5'8", 150 lbs, woman
I am 5’8”, approx 153 lbs and I ordered a 29 in these. I do enjoy the relaxed fit, I will say that the crotch area sits a bit low and did cause some discomfort, unpleasant bunching. These were also a bit buggy under the bum. Overall, they are comfortable, I do like the length inseam wise. I DO enjoy these pants.
The jeans are fantastic for me. I don't like the look of skinny jeans on me. I do not work out, but have always been thick-thighed and large bottomed. The are a great rise for my mommy belly and I love the loose fit.
(For reference, I am 6'5", 185 lbs, and I almost always wear a size 12 or 32 jeans. I ordered the size 30, tall inseam jean from Fran and it fit great. I ordered other tall styles in the size 29 and size 30 and the size 29's were too tight in all styles) I have been looking for some good skinny jeans for a long time! Usually they are too low cut, making it hard to keep my bottom covered when sitting/bending or too tight in the legs or too dingy washed. These are the perfect jeans for my overly tall body. They are not as long as my legs, but they hit in a flattering place, the waist sits in a comfortable spot while also holding in my belly, and the butt looks great! I tried 6 pairs from two different companies, and this was my only keeper!
I have spent my whole life trying to find jeans that fit my athletic legs, but not too big around waist. AND also be long enough for this 6 ft gal! These are them🙌🏼 One of my fav purchases this year.
They fit! I can’t believe they fit!
Super soft and comfortable too
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.
These jeans are amazing! Soooooo soft and comfy! I'm 5' and 114lbs. Originally I ordered at 26, but they were too big. I returned them and quickly received my exchange of size 25. Perfect! I'm a customer for life!
Love these jeans!! I have tried the Hi Rise, the Mid Rise, and now the Low Rise that Fran Denim makes. And by far, I prefer the Low Rise of these Dana jeans. They aren't super low, they sit just below the crest of my hip bones, which I find to be a more flattering fit for myself. I ordered a size 26 and they fit perfectly. I am 5'5", 120 lbs with an athletic build. Now if Fran Denim would just make a few more Low Rise skinny jean options (distressed would be awesome!)!
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!
Used to wear another athletic brand but they never had a good selection of tall sizes (I’m 6’3”/220 pounds). I generally wear a 32/34 (though of course standard jeans are tight around hips and quads) and these were PERFECT. 34 inseam is just right.
I’m a big guy, 6’3’ 240# and it’s been a struggle at times finding jeans that fit me properly. The length, comfort, fit, style, and quality are the best around. I bought my first pair about 8-9 years ago and still wear them. Fran Denim will always be in my closet.
On the positive side, these jeans are good if you don’t fit into the slim and skinny fads of the day. They are soft and comfortable and look stylish. I wish they did NOT have the spandex component, and they fit lower at the waist than what I would prefer. At least I now have a pair of black jeans that fit.
Ordered a pair of these for my fiancé and a pair of Julie jeans for me. These jeans look GREAT on my fiancé, and he loves how they feel! It's normally very hard to find jeans that leave enough room for his very athletic calves, glutes, and rear, and these fit like a glove. They're well worth the price. They may run long? He is usually a 32/32, so I ordered a 34 length figuring that we'd get 2 inches removed from the bottom. They were WAY longer, and we ended up removing 3-4 inches - we absolutely plan to order again, but will order a 31.
Looking forward to getting these jeans for my husband in every color because he loves them and they fit perfectly!
I bought these a little over a year ago and they're still my favorite jeans. And unlike some other stretchy athletic-fit jeans I've bought over the years, they don't seem to be wearing out sooner than normal jeans, either (following the care instructions helps - cold wash, hang to dry). I'm buying a second pair so I don't have to resort to lesser jeans when they're in the wash.
Bought for my son, he's 5'11" 220#. Got 38x34. Fit great except too long. He normally wears 34" length but these are about 2-3" or so longer than his other pants. He says it's worth it though to have them fit better in the upper areas.
Daniel Straight Leg Dark Wash
I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit well. I have larger legs from lifting. I can never find jeans that fit my legs, butt and waist. These fit perfect. I highly recommend them
They have more stretch then other jeans in the closet and seem durable. Knocked a star off for price. Hubby is 6'1', 225, and ordered a 34x34. They were a bit large originally but shrunk up a bit to a good size.
The best jeans I’ve ever worn!!
My son has European genes and has always been bigger than his friends. He never fit in the pants most guys can wear. Now he is in the gym and no jeans fit until now. One happy Mom
Big Quads Jean lovers Unite! I love how these fit and don't sag, but accommodate people with larger Quads. For all you QuadZillas out there, check these jeans out!
These jeans fit awesome. I’ve been searching for jeans that fit like these for years. If you train your legs and have a hard time finding jeans that fit, give Fran denim a try!
I am so happy with these jeans. I have hardly ever owned jeans since I was a teenager due to having an athletic build with large thighs built cycling and lifting weights. So, my outfits are usually overly formal or overly sportive. The only jeans I have owned in the last 15 years were hip hop baggy jeans that made me look fat. My wife was very happy to see me wearing nicely fitted jeans in a casual outfit. They are loose enough to be comfortable and stretchy so that I don't feel inhibited in my movements playing with my daughter or working around the house.
In order to return an item, they messed upon it. The item must be unworn/unwashed/tags in place/ and within 30 days. Outside of that, they are great jeans and this brand of jeans is the most comfortable I have ever worn. Just wish I could have received a pair the fit. Please fix your return policy.
My husband, immediately after trying these on: "Look what I can do!" *karate high kick*
I think that speaks for itself- we'll be buying more.
I am 5’ 7” 180lbs @ ~12% body fat. Size 31/31. I have issues finding jeans that will fit over my thighs and glutes. These things are amazing. They go on snug, but within 15 minutes they have loosened in all the right spots.
My son is big. He’s carrying a lot of extra weight but he’s very muscular too. He says these are the best fitting jeans he’s ever tried on. They fit his big ass and legs with room to move.
Regret not buying them when I first heard of them over a year ago, 5'10, 90 kilos, size 36.
Jeans have always been really restricting on me and I've hated wearing them for that reason, the way these stretch and allow movement is awesome, will definitely buy more.
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
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!!!
