I'm 5'2 112lbs bought size 24. Waist 27" hips widest part 35". Best fitting jeans for muscular build!! Love them, fit perfectly.
I wasn’t sure how these would fit but purchased them because they advertised as fitting a more muscular body type. I typically buy size 6 (5’5, 137lbs) just to have room for my thighs and bootie. I got 2 pairs of Fran denims, one 29 and one size 28 because I wasn't sure how they would fit. The 28 are perfect. Very comfortable. Nice style and stretch. No gapping at the waist, which is a nice change for I’m my usual jeans. Very pleased with purchase.
5’0” 125lb but much softer in the mid section than these models. 26 is tight just around the waist- . Cant tell if it’s appropriate or if it will stretch but I am ordering a 27 to compare the two then send one back - but if my belly was toned the 26 would be perfect and flattering :)
I am just over 5 ft tall and these jeans fit like a glove- perfect length and really nice fit all over. The style is great and the customer service provided by the company to help out with style was awesome. Highly recommend.
Super cute, great fit, and customer service was great. I had to exchange for a different size and the turn around time was very quick.
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!
I only have one brand of western jeans that consistently fit me, and now I have one consistent brand of high quality, cute ‘town’ jeans! I am 5’5”/ 150 lbs curvy, and these jeans hug in all the right places- also love the no bootie-crack with the high waist options 👌🏼 Got a 28 will order a 27 for my next pair. So comfy. Thank you❤️
Oh my gosh-the fit of the denim jacket is incredible! The sleeves are long and actually have room for me to wear a shirt underneath! The body of the jacket not only fits my shoulders but accentuates my body! The stretch of the denim allows the jacket to move with me versus restricting my movement. I am 5’9” and 180 pounds and I ordered a large. I love everything about this jacket!
This jacket is great! It moves with me and is non-restrictive. I am 5'4, 155 pounds and ordered a large.
I love it! I’m 5’7”. 148 lbs and I got the med. it fits great and is very stretchy. Just like the jeans. I may even order the darker one. Worth the money
I’ve never found a denim jacket that fit me before. This one fit great. The material has good stretch but it’s not overly snug and doesn’t make you feel like you’re swimming in it. I’m 5’2/143, ordered a size M.
I regularley order bigger sizes for my thighs. Should have ordered 2-sizes smaller for these pants. Love the belt loops! Wish they had deeper pockets
Pros, the fit, the deep front pockets, not easily wrinkled, comfortable
Cons, fabric is a little thin. The blue is so dark it almost looks black. Wish the blue wasn't so dark. I have these slacks in blue and black and they don't look that different. I am short, 5’1” and they are a bit long for me but not a huge deal. Wish there were an option for a shorter inseam
Overall, a good pair of pants and I have put them in my rotation of work clothes.
Ok, I was skeptical with the high price but let me tell you - I have zero work pants right now that fill well. So I took a chance and I am so glad I did! They fit PERFECTLY, the quality is top notch. I just wish these work ones came in multiple colors. The waist is a smidge tight but that is my own problem that I'm working on lol. Do not hesitate on these if you are in the need for professional looking pants that fit great and are easy to do a lot of movement in (my job has a lot of walking involved). I'll update with a pic soon...
It is nice to finally find a pair of work slacks that fit my body type better! I am short, 5'1", and got the size 24 and they are still a bit long but they work. They are a little tighter in the calf than I'd like but they may stretch a bit. I also like that the front pockets are pretty deep for girl's pants. I love real pockets! I will probably get another pair in the blue. They will be a nice addition to my work wardrobe. I just may need to hem them a couple inches.
For my first order from Fran Denim, I have to say I live the jeans. They fit so perfectly and true to size. The work/dress pants I bought were bigger than expected.
Get fit and so comfy I can’t wait to get more colors. I can never find slacks to fit me right!
I have ordered Fran jean shorts before and they are my favorite in my closet. I decided to order a pair of work pants, since work pants never fit me. These fit great... except they are WAY too short. They hang 2-3 inches above my ankle. I am tall, 5'9" with long legs, but these were beyond short. I have contacted Fran to see if the pant leg can be let down and if they can I will do so, but this is exactly why I try and go with a brand like Fran, so I do not have to have items tailored. With a decent price tag already, I would not recommend if you are tall.
Finally, jeans for ladies who lift!
This was my first Fran Denim purchase- I have 28” waist, 39.5 inch hips and 24.5 thighs- athletic build- these jeans in size 27 give the perfect stretch for my high level of movement even outside of the gym. More impressively still, they stay right in place! Furthermore, They do not loose shape by end of day- These jeans are awesome! I can get more done since I’m not spending any time adjusting my happy, jeans, and belt- I will be purchasing more! Thank you for a practical, dependable, product that compliments my angles and truly makes my day-
I have NEVER purchased a pair of pants which fit in the hips, waist, and inseam until buying these. They are fantastic. I am 5'3, 140 lbs, with a 26" natural waist, 28" pants waist, and 40" hips. I bought a size 27 and they fit like a nice, snug glove, with room to move and stretch in all the right places. If these end up discontinued or otherwise unavailable, I will be super disappointed!
Omg! Finally a pair that fits my height/length (or there lack of) AND my thighs, with NO waist gap or need to tug them up constantly. I’m 5’4” and 167 lbs (39” hip crease, 42” at widest part of hip/mid butt, 24” each thigh, 36.5” waist at belly button and 32” smallest part of the waist). The stretch/mobility of these jeans is wonderful and super comfy. Also makes my butt look spectacular (according to my husband). I can wear with my running shoes or Birkenstocks without them dragging on the floor behind me. The flare leg is flattering and not over bearing. I bought a size 30 and it’s perfection because it’s high waisted so the rise hits almost at my true waist (smallest part). Will be ordering another pair as back up!!
These are sharp looking and comfortable and are an instant favorite! They fit as promised on my curvy body. The only thing I'd change is the inseam; it's really long for a petite. ( I'm 5'1", 163 lbs and purchased size 30)
Highly recommend! I will be ordering another one very very soon!
Even though these are advertised for body builders, they are my PERFECT mama jeans too!
I am 5’7, 158lbs and bought a size 27.
I am 5’11” and 185 lbs and could NEVER find jeans that fit me well, with larger thighs and a booty. These jeans are PERFECT. When I measured, I aired on the side of caution a little and ordered a size 30 and while they fit like a glove as soon as I put them on, they loosened up a little as I wore them the first time and I found myself pulling them up constantly as I was moving around a lot. I will definitely be ordering in more colors (I got the dark wash this time) and will try a size 29 next time to see how they feel!
I’m 6’ with long legs and the Helen’s Long Skinny jeans fit like a glove! If they had more options in long I’d buy more!
As a tall, muscular, active woman, finding jeans that move with me has been what I thought was a lost cause. These are the best jeans I've ever owned. Damnit, I love them.
5’8” with long legs, 145#. I bought a size 27. At first, they were super tight on my legs and calves but it is true that they loosen up with wear. They ended up fitting great after moving around in them for a few mins. This is the first pair of jeans that actually fits right. Will buy again!
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 absolutely love these jeans. They fit perfectly and look great. My only problem is that I don't have more. I get that a 34 inch inseam is a bit drastic and hard to mass produce but even a 32" inseam would meet everyone in the middle. Please please please consider us taller gals!!!
These jeans fit amazingly! Nice snug but stretchy material, color just as pictured, and hold all my lady bits together!
My only complaint is the lack of Fran denims long inseam options, the Helen is the only women’s long pant available. I’d buy every pair if they had them!
Please cater to us leggy ladies too! Long Legs Matter!
I really, really love the fit and feel of these jeans. Finally a pair of jeans that fits my body and I don’t feel like I constantly have to hike up the waist. I love the long length and the measuring guide was very helpful. My only complaint is that after wearing them for a full day, I realized the zipper is broken and constantly opens up. That was a bit of a bummer for expensive jeans, especially since otherwise they’d be my all time favorites and I’d wear them all the time.
Nenia, it's a special zipper and the handle needs to be flipped down for the stop to engage. If you leave it flipped up, it'll slide down.
I absolutely love these Jean's the best I've ever purchased. They definitely flatter my body shape very well! And I've even gotten compliments on them😍I am 5' 5" and weigh 150 pounds and wear size 27
I’ve been looking for pants that fit like these do. This is the first pair of button fly jeans I’ve ever had and I LOVE them! They fit my thighs and butt perfectly!
Finally!! A pair of jeans that fits my waist with NO back gap, AND I have room in the thighs!
Will definitely be purchasing another style!
It’s so nice to finally have found a pair of jeans that fit my body perfectly. They are the perfect legnth and NO WAIST GAP! They have just enough stretch but don’t stretch out during the day. For someone like me with full thighs, butt, hips, and small waist, these jeans are perfect. I will be buying another pair in the future.
I had been wanting to try these jeans for a while and finally decided to pull the trigger, and I’m so glad I did. I love the way they look and fit and are probably the most comfortable jeans I’ve worn, especially after wearing them a few times. They have the best overall fit of any jeans I’ve tried, perfect fit at through hips and butt and smaller in the waist! This will not be my last pair!
These jeans are very soft and fit great. I will definitely order more!
A perfect skinny fit with buttons that lay perfectly and don’t stab you when you sit down. My only critic is they are a tad short I am 5’5” with a 29”inseam, they come to the top of my ankle bone which might be an issue if you have longer legs.
Thought they were too tight at first but after a short time wearing them they fit perfectly. Recommend sizing down or right at so they stay a little snug. Also very cute and love the button fly.
I am 5'5", 175lbs, softer shape, and got a size 31. I'm softer in the waist and have trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs and that don't cut off circulation at the knee! These fit great! I realized after I ordered they come up to 1-2" above my ankle so a bit shorter than other jeans that I have purchased from here (which I roll up a cuff for). Love the fit and that they fit my thighs without a huge gap at the waist. I love that I can squat in these with no problem! The button fly is awesome and super cute.
5’6, athletic, 150#
Size 26 and LOVE LOVE LOVE
When I put these jeans on, I felt like they were MADE FOR ME 💛💛💛
I went to a mma party and rolled (bjj) in them for 1.5hrs (sometimes happens when you get a bunch of fighters in one room and drinking ;)) and they never got too stretched out, retained perfect form after wash and never any waist gap. I LOVE THEM!
I’ve finally found the best shorts! They fit perfectly and the stretch makes them very comfy. Best of all, the legs aren’t so tight that the make my quads look like sausages escaping their casings lol. The fit in the quads is perfect. Definitely going to buy more!
I love these! They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. They’re long enough where my cheeks don’t hang out but short enough to give you that cut off jean shorts look. 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. (I had to exchange my first pair for a larger size and found that the 29s fit most comfortably and don’t look too big at all). I’m regularly a 27 in most jeans.
I have always struggled to find shorts that fit me perfectly, any bottom wear honestly. The waist was always too big, legs too tight, gapping in the front. Complete frustration every time I tried on shorts and jeans. I am 5’4 160lbs and I got a size 30 and I almost cried when I put them on they fit so perfectly. Highly recommend, totally worth the price.
They are so comfortable... their like sweat pant shorts, but cuter. No gapping at the waist and not digging into my things- best shorts ever.
I’m 5’4” and 150lbs. These shorts are amazing. They have room for my legs, are delightfully soft, and move with me. I love that the 4” inseam covers parts I’m self-conscious about but shows off the parts I’m proud of. Definitely recommend and will buy another pair. ❤️
These are absolute perfection! I’m 5’2 with a lean but athletic build, about 128lbs and ordered a size 25. I wanted a bit of a longer length and with my height these were perfect. Form fitting but so comfortable and definitely have stretch. I’ll be ordering more pairs!
Just wow! I was hesitant to purchase shorts without trying them on first, but the sizing chart was very helpful and on point! The only pair of shorts I’ve owned where I didn’t have to either wear a belt or keep pulling them down from riding up my thighs. Loved them so much, I bought another pair of shorts and 2 pairs of jeans!
Shorts were true to size. I love the fabric and the length! I’ll definitely be visiting the site again for a new pair of jeans ❤️
I love these shorts and am so happy that I spent the money on shorts that fit my athletic thighs! I can now feel confident in my shorts!
I’ve been a Fran Denim lover for 6 years and they are the only jeans/shorts I wear. Durable, stretchy, snug in the right places. Highly recommended for thighs that save lives 😉
I can finally move in a pair of shorts! They fit my quads and glutes and I’m not constantly pulling them up!
Amazing fit, soft, and stretchy, what more could you want with a pair or jean shorts? Before this pair of shorts, I never would have thought it could be possible for jean shorts be to comfortable.
LOVE THESE SHORTS! I only wish it hadn’t taken me so long to find out about them. They are flattering and comfortable.
I went by the models dimensions in my order and also the fact that they said they stretch out so don't order big. I am 5'6, 158, waist is 29, Hips 39, bust 37. Wish I would have ordered a size up. I ordered a 28
I REALLY wanted to like these shorts, and I was really excited to try this brand. I understand I have a tough shape to fit - I have a 29in. waist and 44in. hips, with 25in. thighs. I ordered a size 30 so that my booty would have enough room without having a hug waist gap. Unfortunately, I have a lot of gapping in the back:( these shorts also ride up really bad, i’m assuming from not having enough room in the butt. These shorts are EXTREMELY comfy though and feel like amazing quality which is why I’m giving them a 4 and not a 3. They just don’t fit right on me and so I’m going to try another style and maybe size down to a 29. I think someone who has slightly less exaggerated dimensions that myself would absolutely love them:)
A few wears made these shorts perfectly comfy. I live in a warm climate and work from home... so I basically live in these. Have also lifted in them! There is a little bit of ride-up, as with any short short, but not as much as other brands. One note, I did find that this rise was more flattering on my rear than the high rise, which naturally has higher butt pockets.
These were worth every penny, and my next purchase is the jeans. I’m 5’3, 150 lbs., wearing the 28!
I've been searching for a pair of cutoffs for a few years and never had any luck in the stores. I always had a gap in the waist and tight on the thighs. These shorts are just perfect!
I have no hips and bigger legs. Was hoping they would be straight, but the hip area was bigger than leg area. Plenty of room for legs, but too much for hips. Not any different than my problems with regular denim shorts.
I have a pair of dark wash Nicole High Rise Skinnies, but I really wanted a pair in black and the only ones available were the Julie. I think I like the fit of the Nicole a little bit better, but the Julie is still a great pair of quality jeans.
All my life I have had quads. Due to genetics, sports (track) and dance. FINALLY someone thought to design jeans fit girls with QUADS!! And even better they chose a tag line that didn’t body shame us!! “For the dedicated” ❤️❤️❤️
Love these jeans!! I am a new mom and just getting my body back, these jeans made me feel sexy and put together great for a date night out!
I had to return mine because I bought the wrong size (my fault) but I was also surprised to find that they were more like jeggings than jeans. If Fran Denim has other jeans that aren't as elastic, maybe those would be better.
I love the fit but the black jeans collect a lot of lint.
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!
I have a curvy, athletic build and have always had a difficult time finding jeans that fit my waist, buttocks and thighs. I was so excited when I received my first shipment of Fran Denim jeans. And I am happy to report they did not disappoint. Within a few months I am now the owner of 5 Fran Denim jeans and look forward to purchasing more in the future.
