I'm 5'6", 145 lbs and am a size 28 in Fran Denim products. These shorts pulled on and off so easily without struggle. There are no gaps at the waist and they hug the thigh nicely, without pinching or squeezing.
Love the look and fit of these shorts! So cute and incredibly comfortable! I’m 5’2 And about 125lbs. Purchased size 26
These shorts are the best…perfect for girls who lift. They fit great all around…no belt needed. I’m 5’4, 138 pounds, muscular build and size 27 fits great. Definitely recommend!
These shorts were exactly as described..left room for my thighs without sacrificing the waist. Thanks so much for making these products! Keep this trend going by making shirts with sleeves for muscular arms and extra room for lats! :)
My wife loves them. She is 5'8" 140 and ordered size 28.
Molly Shorts Dark Wash
I love this shorts! Super Confortable and look amazing. Can wear them all day!!
These are the best jean shorts I've ever purchased and I will likely get a second pair. I was skeptical about spending 80 to 100 dollars for jeans of any kind, but since giving this brand a shot, I'll never go back to cheap Old Navy jeans. I appreciate that my thighs aren't being squeezed to death by the fabric.
I've never had a better fitting pair of shorts. I held out for a long time due to the cost, but I finally invested and they are prefect for my large thighs.
I love these shorts so much. I ordered a size 8, I’m 5’5” 140lbs and they fit perfect. They don’t ride up and they have just enough stretch. I will be buying more !
I always have a difficult time finding shorts that fit my frame and these were perfect!
These fit so well! I ordered true to size 28 and they feel great - short where you want them, but not up the crotch. Stretchy but no gapping in back. I even dried them in the dryer and they were 👌
Thank you, Fran Denim!
Little short but my husband likes it hahah
I’m kinda between sizing right now since I had my daughter and just getting back to the gym but I’d rather pay the higher price for amazing shorts that will only fit temporarily while I loose more weight because I’ve still maintained the muscle legs with a littler waist.
Slowly throwing out my other pants and shorts in order to make room for Fran denims
I am a powerlifter and the hardest part of finding shorts is having them fit just right without a huge gap in thr waist. I measured my waste and the shorts fir perfectly on me. I am 5'2. 155lbs
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’m officially off the struggle bus! Finally found shorts that fit my build. I’m 5’3”180lbs perfectly fitting in a 31. I spend my gym time doing CrossFit, weight lifting & boxing.
I’m a CrossFit athlete and I have really large legs and bottom. It has been so hard to find a pair of shorts that actually fit my shape. I’m glad I found these shorts they fit me perfectly.
It’s amazing how simply awesome proper fitting shorts are. My measurements put me at 28 and when I tried them on they fit perfectly around the waist a tiny bit tight at the thigh but after wearing around a little, they stretched enough that I should have sized down to a 27. Not worth the return since I love them so much that I’m going to get more and will size down next time. But well worth the cost for a comfortable and all over great fit.
Purchased size 29 and perfect size. I hadn’t seen too many reviews of tall girls but I purchased two shorts from Fran denim and I love them. I wish there were more options for 4inch length for us taller girls!!
I absolutely love these shorts! Best jean shirts I’ve ever owned!! The rise is perfect - not too low or high, and there’s still enough coverage for the booty!
For reference, I’m 5’0.5”, 120 pounds athletic build, and purchased a 26.
Love these shorts, they fit super well! They’re short but still cover your butt which is great, I’m 5’11” so that’s usually an issue for me. Definitely recommend!
My shorts fit me perfectly and are super comfy. I am able to wear them all day without any issues.
The Molly shorts fit me perfectly. I'm 4'11", 110lb and got a size 24
These fit awesome, super cute
I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of denim shorts and finally found them! These shorts are super comfortable and don't ride up. Highly recommend!
I got a larger size because I am not a fan of shorts at all but these are wonderful and fit my hips and thighs nicely.
They fit perfectly in the waist and hips and no waist gap! I just love these shorts and they are so flattering on my body.
These shorts are the perfect fit and length. My favorite shorts I own. I'm 5'4" 140 and bought a 28
These are definitely long enough and are super comfortable. These are true to size, I usually wear a 27 and they fit beautifully. For reference: I’m 5’8”, 140ish lbs and wear a size 6/8 in other shorts and pants.
Man. It feels DANG GOOD to be wearing Jean shorts for the first time in Several Years!!!! I have thick thighs/hips/ and these are amazing. I will buying several pairs of Fran Denim!
I finally have shorts that fit each my rear end & thighs, without the waist gap! After I ordered the first pair, I have since ordered 2 more shorts and a pair of jeans.
First, I had trouble finding a short that fit my waist and bum. Then I found fran denim.
Then, I had trouble finding a short that covered all of my bum after moving around. Then I found the janyce short!
My only complaint is that the light wash almost has a “dirty” look to the fabric so it’s hard to match with tops.
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. ❤️
I ordered a size 30. It’s too big! Not just loose fitting but actually too big. I’m hoping a 29 will fit. I would usually order a 29 but I needed a 30 for my other pair of Frans (Madison I think). I am 5’7.5”, 155lb and my thighs are 24in
Never have I ever… had shorts fit me like these! So excited to wear them all summer long!
These shorts fit great and are super comfy according to my daughter who wears them ALL the time. She swims and Fran Denim are the best shorts for her athletic body. Tiny waist, swimmer muscles.
I love these shirts. I’ve been skeptical to try Fran Denim, but damn. These are indeed made for an athletic physique.
Very happy with my new shorts. It was a bit of a gamble ordering from the Netherlands. I used the size charts on the website and it fits perfectly. Fabric is really nice and soft. Finally found jeans shorts that fits perfectly 😃
These run true to size. The denim is of very good quality. My search for properly fitting jeans ends here. I've bought 2 pairs of jeans and 2 shorts. I love them all!! I have thick thighs and calves with a smaller waist. These fit my legs, my butt and my waist without being pulled down! And NO waist gap! It's legit. Worth the money.
LOVE THESE. I am a 29 waist with a 31 hip/thigh. The size 30 fit perfectly with no gap. They do not fit as tight as they look on the model.. thankfully.
THANK YOU Fran Denim for making these shorts -- they fit great! I'm slender, but I'm a runner with very muscular thighs which makes finding pants and shorts that fit a real pain. I wear a 25, and am 5'7" and 125 lbs. The high waist design fits me well; the mid-rise is too snug around the waist for me.
First purchase of Fran denim & did not disappoint. they really do fit my thighs so comfortably and i dont have to wear a belt and have no waist gap! I'm comfortable sitting down and look hella cute!
I love these shorts. They have the perfect amount of stretch and look great on me! I'm 5'10" 171lb, and I purchased a 29.
5’ 2” 150#. Size 28. Love these shorts. Shorter than expected. They do get a little “cheeky” and need to be adjusted.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I was skeptical at first because the inseam was a little shorter than I usually buy, but I tried them on and fell in love. These shorts fit my waist perfectly and don't ride up my thighs. I didn't know denim material could feel so soft or move so well.
Super cute and short, but still provide enough coverage. At 38 years old I am 5 ft 6 and 50 lbs. I purchased the 29 and they are just a tad baggy on the sides. I think a 28 would have fit better, but they are nice and roomy!
Shorts have always been a struggle with bigger thighs and a smaller waist, but these are perfect. They are stretchy and soft with more room in the thighs and no waist gap. I feel sexy in these and I rarely feel that way with shorts.
I love these shorts!! They are so comfortable and fit well in the waist, butt, and thighs. They don’t ride up at all, there’s no gapping, they fit comfortably at the waist, and they held their shape well even after 2 wears.
I am 5’6”, 155# and I have an all over muscular build with thick thighs and a substantial butt, BUT my waist is not significantly smaller than my hips because of my obliques and having 4 kids. I was uncertain of the correct size so I ordered a 28 and a 29 and they both fit really well, but I do prefer the 29 (while my jeans in a 29 are a little too loose all over).
Great fit, soft and comfy, totally worth it.
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 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!
Most comfortable and flattering shorts I’ve owned!
Customer service was awesome, communications was quick and informative. Shorts came and are high quality and exactly as I had hoped to get.
I am 5’6” 145lbs and bought a size 25. I could have probably even gone down to a 24, but they are sooooo comfortable!!!!
NEW! SOPHIE BUTTON FLY SHORTS DARK WASH
I am generally a thrift store shopper and not one to invest a lot of money in clothing, but in this case it was so worth it. I am 5'4, 130 lbs with a 27 in waist and 37 in hips. I purchased a size 25 in these shorts and am thrilled with how they fit! I will definitely be purchasing a pair of jeans in the near future. Also, appreciate the excellent customer service!
Great fit and so comfortable!
Love the shorts! The only thing is the side hips are a little weird because I don’t have large hips…but they’re still comfy and cute :)
I’m 5’2” 138# and wear a 27
5’10” and 165 pounds. I ordered the 29, but should have exchanged for the 28.
Still a very nice pair of shorts.
These are by far the best shorts I’ve owned. However, I ordered a size up (29) from my normal size based on a couple other reviews. The legs are still slightly tight on me and I have a good amount of room left in my waist. So, not perfect but still wayyy better than most. I ordered the light wash in a size down (28) and they are also great but the legs are definitely tight for my thicc thighs even though the waist is a good fit. I’m 5’7”, 163lbs.
I won't deny, I love your jeans and I was super excited to try these shorts out since most of the shorts I own are either super wide in the leg or super wide in the waist. These both my legs, butt, and waist and I felt super cute. Thanks for making a great product
Love the Melissa shorts I just purchased. I am older (62) and I really love the 5 inch inseam as the 2 and 3 inch are just too short for me. I would love this even more if it had a higher waist - it's not really low - more mid-rise - but I like a higher waist (so thankful when those came back into style). If you offered a high waist, 5 inch short, I would buy instantly!! (Hint, hint - people with athletic builds actually get older, too!) I am 5'6", weigh 140, am very athletically active and purchased a size 30.
Fabulous! Fit is fantastic, comfortable, roomy, makes me feel like the bad@$$ I am!!! I’m so grateful to have found a pair of shorts that fits my athletic figure.
These were for my gymnist-daughter who is 13 with well-defined muscles. It’s so great to NOT have a gap at her waist! They’re cute and just what we were hoping for.
Thank you so much for making shorts that fit my legs and waist!!! I absolutely love them!!
These are the best fitting shorts I have ever tried! Finally, no more compromise between fitting in the hip OR the waist. They are so comfortable and clearly high quality. I will be investing in more!
Just purchased the Maria 5” shorts in dark wash and I’m very happy with them. The cuffed bottom makes them feel a little dressier than the cut off fringe bottom shorts. The fit is great, as with all Fran Denim shorts. I am 5’6” and weigh 140 and I purchased a 29.
My life has changed! I have never been able to wear shorts. They always ride up, where too tight in all the wrong places, and I had given up. But now --- Not only am I wearing these shorts everywhere but I've been stopped three times in the last week. Feeling confident and love showing off my legs for the first time in years! Thank you for creating this incredible brand - I am a buyer for life!
Height - 5'9; weight - 180, size 31.
I literally went to 20 stores to try and find something that did not gap in the waist. I am beyond thrilled with how these fit and how soft they are. These are amazing! I will be buying more from Fran Denim!!
I have pretty long legs and I love the length of these because they don’t roll up and are just the right length. I also love the fit. These shorts are perfect for anyone with a smaller waist but nice fit legs :)
Definitely fit better than most jean shorts. I have large thighs though and a small waist and they still gapped a lot. Thighs 26" waist 29" hips 41"
Fran denim shorts have a fantastic fit for athletic builds. The first time i wore them before the wash, i was in love. The only problem with these shorts is the fold at the bottom, it does not stay and since there is a fold in the fabric it rolls. I typically don’t get shorts with a fold for this reason, but the cut I wanted was already sold out in my size.
Like the title says I’ve been wearing them practically every day. Very comfortable, great looking fit, wash with no change to size. Go smaller than you may think if you’re new to Fran denim!
I absolutely love them. They fit in all the right places. I was extremely happy to find these shorts and that they move with my body. I have gained weight recently and my already thick muscle thighs don’t help much. I am 5’8, 170lbs and I ordered a size 31. Fit perfect
My shorts fit like a glove, like no shorts ever have before. I'm a Fran buyer for life now!
These are easily the most comfortable pair of denim shorts I've ever bought. Only downfall would be the size. I'm 5'7" and 170 pounds so I ordered a 31 per sizing on the website and I actually need to size down to a 30!
It’s really hard for me to find good shorts that fit just right and these are absolutely a perfect fit. I’m 5,5 and 130lbs I purchased size 25 . I love these shorts and totally recommend them!
Nice color. Pleasantly not too dark either as the lighter wash was out of stock so bought these instead. I bought the same size as always (26) but to me these seemed to run a bit larger than my other two jeans and two shorts. They just seemed different. I believe once washed and dried they’ll be great. And overall this brand is as promised —- perfect for the athletic build. I am 5’5 and small waisted with built thighs from lifting and butt and hips that are also developed. I weigh at around 135-139 on average. I have several style jeans and shorts and 26 is perfect on me. Hope this helps!
These shorts are the best and really comfortable. They fit my waist and thighs. No gaps. I highly recommend them. I have muscular thighs and glutes and most shorts ride up.
