I sized up to a 30 (typically a 29) like what was recommended but they are a tad big. Better than too tight! Fantastic quality. I’ll be purchasing another pair for sure. I’m 5’7.5” and 165 lbs
I love everything I have gotten from Fran denim. These shorts fit great. I’m 5’7”. 147 lbs. I got a 29.
Height: 5’6. Weight: 130. Size ordered: 25. BEST SHORTS EVER ORDERED! Fit perfectly and stay “snug” the whole day!
I love high rise shorts but they were always too snug in the bit or thighs. These fit perfect! No riding up or tugging down. Will try jeans this fall!
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!
Whether or not I workout, I naturally have significantly larger thighs and glutes compared to my waist. These are the very first and only properly fitting jeans I have ever owned. I will never ever buy jeans from anywhere else. The sizing is spot on. In my case, I was between sizes and decided to go smaller, and it worked out amazingly. The stretch in the fabric works wonders. Seriously obsessed with these jeans. I should have ordered more. Fran has helped me love jeans instead of despise them. I'm 5'3", 130lb and ordered size 26. The length was also appropriate and not stupidly and uselessly long. Thanks to Julie Ledbetter for the recommendation. Thanks Fran for making jeans for human-shaped humans.
Looks nice very comfortable to wear. I am a fan of FranDenim love the clothes and the great quality on the materials
These pants are great for those who have thick thighs and a booty! I’m 5’2” and hover around 145 lbs. My legs and butt have been getting bigger due to all the lifting I’ve been going and no longer fit in my jeans! Enter Frandenim! They fit great. There soft and stretchy and fit in all the right places. I can now continue to do all the squats and still look and feel good in my jeans!
I love these jeans! The rips are in the perfect place, when I bend my knees I don’t have to worry about the holes getting bigger.
These are multi-purpose in my book! I love that I am able to wear them when I’m in shape, but they are also my PERFECT mom jeans! I am 7 months post baby, 5’7 and 169lbs, and the size 29 fits great. I’m so happy with these jeans. A MUST BUY!
I love ripped jeans and saw these new ones and had to give them a try. I have been working out and found my butt and thighs to thic for regular jeans. I am 5'1" 115 lbs. Finding high rise jeans that will not pucker at the waist and not suffocate my legs and butt seems hard to find anymore. These are also my first Fran jeans and I am so satisfied with my purchase! I really like the placement of the rips as well on the jeans too. Jeans are very good quality, the zipper isn't cheap, great color, they feel nice and comfy as well! I hope Fran makes more ripped jeans and maybe Mom Jeans too! So worth the price!
I had previously tried these in a 29, which is my size in the Mika petite version fo this jean. But, I decided to try sizing down to a 28. AMAZING! I love Fran demon in general. Mika/Iris/All the shorts. But, these high rise Aprils are just my absolute favorite! I hope you make more medium washes in the April. Maybe a medium wash destruction?
I feel like I finally found a pair that finally fit my body type. The thighs fit perfectly and there is no waist gap!
Hi rise is great!
Love that these fit my waist and my thick thighs
Size 28 and 29 both worked for my 5’7” 155 lb body
The jeans fit snugly but give for movement and loosen up a bit after first wearing
Hips are 41” Waist is 37”, 5’4, 170 lbs, size 29
According to the sizing chart, I should be at least a 32. I emailed to ask about the sizing and the gal said I should try a 31. When it arrived, they were huge! In other brands, I wear a size 8 or 29, so I sized down to a 29 and they fit perfect at the waist. The thighs are still tight, but there’s no gap in the waist. 🤷🏻♀️ Moral of the story - order your normal size. I’m still deciding if I just like them or love them, but they were worth keeping. Good quality.
I’m 5’9” with a 29” waist and 42” hips and ordered a size 28. I was surprised by how well these fit. I had about a 2 second worry they wouldn’t go up but they slid on and zipped easy peasy. I may be able to get away with a 27 but I kind of like the extra room. I love how they look and while I never thought I could use “jeans” and “comfortable” in the same sentence, MY GOD THESE JEANS ARE ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I can bend, lounge, move and am not constantly having to pull them up to make sure my butt hasn’t fallen out. Total win. Will be buying more pairs in different washes.
These are wonderful! I’m a 29 in the Mika, ordered a 28 in three! Absolutely perfect! I’m just under 5’5”
When I tell you these fit like a glove… I ordered a size 30 and they’re perfect. I’m fearful they’ll stretch and be too big, but for now they’re perfect.
My measurements are
I read some reviews, and got good insight into sizing that was helpful. So, I am adding additional info to help others. I am 5'9", 170 lbs, athletic build. Measurements:
34 Waist at belly button
I ordered a 29, and they fit. They are tight like you'd expect, but not too tight.
Great quality but just didn’t love the fit. Will try a different style.
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.
Looking forward to getting these jeans for my husband in every color because he loves them and they fit perfectly!
Good fit and comfortable. Wearing them right now.
Just enough room for my big legs.
My son had listed Fran Denim Jeans on his Christmas Wish List and was extra happy to receive two pairs.
He is about 215 lbs, 6’1 and I purchased black straight denim. No jeans fit his body due to large quads and smaller waist. These were the perfect fit. Size 34 and length 31
I have always had issues with pants I cannot stress enough if you have issues with jeans fitting you because of your thighs, hips, or butt these are for you. I will likely never buy a different brand of jeans with how comfortable these are and how well they fit.
I bought these jeans for my son who has had a hard time finding comfortable jeans for his very muscular thighs. He is a 33 waist 34 length. He loves these jeans. They are comfortable and have a nice bit of stretch.
Best. Jeans. Ever.
I find myself sitting/standing/stretching like i have normal jeans on, but then I realize can move with my full range of motion with these!!!! It's SERIOUSLY like they aren't even there. I didn't believe the claims, but I am now fully converted. Fran Denim for life.
Definitely true to size. I'm 5'8"/ 172cm at ~170lbs/77kg and the size 32x31 is perfect.
Fran Denim are amazing, Ive always hated jeans due to how restricting they are, but these are awesome, wear them all the time. 5'10 93kilos 36 31"INSEAM
These jeans fit perfect and allow for great freedom of movement.
Having big trouble trying to find the nice fit while being able to move properly. They fit nicely. Would like them to be just a little bit more fit on the calf but other than that. Can’t complaint! :) Love them!!
Daniel Straight Leg Light Wash
I am 6’2” and 215 lbs and I got the 33” waist and they fit perfectly. Far and away the comfiest jeans I e owned
The fit on these jeans is not great. I ordered waist size 33 and probably should have gotten a 32 or 31.Really loose in the waist. Overall comfort is good but fit wise I was disappointed.
Since I bought my 1st pair three years ago, I have not bought any other brand. Fran are the only jeans that I'll wear.
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.
Best pair of jeans I own
I purchased the 32 / 31" pair and they fit great. No hemming required. I am 5'11, 210 lbs, 26" thighs. They are a little bit form fitting but that is to be expected when you have squatters legs.
The dark color looks fantastic for casual office environments. Pockets are deep enough for a medium sized phone.
I looked at Fran because someone I follow on social media had shared that these jeans are more comfortable and more flexible than any other. I previously had purchased jeans from a local retailer, but they’re very tight as I have been spending more time working on bodybuilding style workouts. My legs have grown to about 26”. Since Fran advertised wider cuts, and they had a great discount recently, I figured that now was the time to buy. The denim used is much more comfortable, but the cut and design is about the same. Out of all my jeans, they’re my favorite, but I did have extremely high expectations.
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!
These are my favorite jeans to wear! I get more compliments on how my legs and butt look in these!
Cute but had to return due to too long of inseam. No fault of the company; bootcut works with a slightly long inseam but not flare. (62 in tall; 155lbs)
I LOVE these jeans, the fit and material are comfy and they flatter my more muscular physique. I am 5'5" and 160 lbs. I have larger hips, bubble butt and muscular thighs and calves. I had given up on jeans long ago as most jeans are built for smaller hips and skinny legs. But I back in jeans now thanks to this company 🙌 🙏 I maybe could have gone down one size since they lossen up a bit after wearing them for a while. Definitely true to size but if you are in between sizes I suggest picking the smaller size because there is a lot of stretch and forgiveness.
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!!!
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.
I’m 5’10, 170 #. I struggle with finding jeans that fit properly. I have bigger thighs and a smaller waist as well as bigger calves. I don’t like when they are too snug in certain places, when I have to yank them up in order to sit or having to adjust all the time. I finally caved and splurged on these jeans and they are so comfortable. I can literally walk around doing squats in them if I wanted to. The long inseam are *almost* too long but I like having the option to cuff them at the bottom! My only complaint is they do stretch a little bit so they become looser around my knees and right below my belt loops on my backside but I think the smaller size may have been too tight. I did follow the size guide and ordered a 29. Overall, I am loving my purchase and I’m going to be buying more!
I wear a 10/12 , 5ft 10. 34 Inseam. These jeans were the PERFECT Length for me. Also the Waist height is perfectly over my belly button, and I have a long torso. I saw the model wearing this style and she looked like my same build and height so I got size 31, but I could have worn a 30 Also as they have a lot of stretch. I will for sure buy another pair!
Loving this cut! Incredibly comfortable - my go-to denim every time.
5’10” - 160lbs. Size 28
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.
Love these jeans! They are my go-to. The shorts are great too! I wish the flare style came in a long inseam though I would be 100% on board with wearing more than just skinny jeans
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 was a skinny jean girl for life but I think I am a convert now. The high rise is perfect (hits me just above the navel) and the leg is relaxed and comfortable. I am a millennial mom and didn't want to feel like I was trying too hard to be hip but these are perfect. I feel with the times while not trying to look 10 years younger. Definitely order a size down- I ordered a 30 and had to exchange for a 29 and they are perfect!
Eva Crop Dark Destruction Wash
Always a perfect fit!
Eva Crop Dark Destruction Wash
Eva Crop Dark Destruction Wash
I'm 5'2 112lbs bought size 24. Waist 27" hips widest part 35". Best fitting jeans for muscular build!! Love them, fit perfectly.
These jeans are the most flattering jeans I’ve ever owned. Never have I ever gotten so many compliments on jeans! Comfortable and great style.
I’m in love with these jeans. I’m 5’4” and between 135 and 140 pounds. I originally purchased the 28. After wearing them, they loosened up a little too much, but I still loved them and kept them. I went and got another pair (the dark destruction) in a 27. The 27 fits absolutely perfectly. They’re so incredibly comfortable and fit like a dream. They’re the perfect length, don’t make my thighs or butt feel squished and fit perfectly around the waist. My body is longer than my legs, so this petite length is perfect!
I love these pants. They fit perfectly and they feel great. I am 5’6” 145 lbs with muscular legs and a small waist.
I am 5’4” and 125-130lbs. My waist is 25” and hips are 39” & a size 25 fits like a glove. I have always had a hard time finding jeans that fit my butt/ hips & my waist & now that I lift heavy it’s even worse, but not anymore! I don’t even have to wear a belt! I now own 3 pairs of jeans from Fran and LOVE every pair!
