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 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.
Was a little apprehensive given I couldn’t try these on beforehand but the size was spot on! No gab in the back. Perfect around my wait. Doesn’t dig into my thighs. Soft material. Very complimentary to my figure. Definitely buying more. Will consider the jeans now.
I LOVE THEM!
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.
FINALLY. I haven’t worn non athletic shorts in years. No waist gap, no digging in the legs. These shorts are everything.
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.
awesome shorts. they look great on my wife and she says they’re true to size
I ordered my first pair of Fran Denim shorts. I was so nervous with the sizing because my measurements were in between two sizes (the size chart is AWESOME by the way) so I emailed Fran Denim and they emailed me back right away with sizing help. I ordered my pair of the Amy short. They came in and were a little too tight for my liking. I emailed them again and explained what happened. They allowed me to return them and exchange for the next size up. I ordered my first pair on promo and they even honored the promo on my second pair even though it didn’t “qualify”.
My new shorts came in and they are like butter. I have thick thighs and they stay out with minimal riding and the waist fits perfectly. And they look great.
These shorts are actually amazing. No gaping at the waist and super stretchy. I haven't worn jean shorts in at least two years because I had never found any comfortable, until now!
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 ❤️
JANYCE SHORTS LIGHT WASH
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.
Absolutely love these shirts. Best fit and so comfortable. I will definitely be buying more!!!
IVY SHORTS BLACK
Big fan. Will be purchasing more!
I have a pair of jeans from Fran Denim and LOVE THEM and I LOVED these shorts but.... they are just too short for the long legs + booty... (I am 5'9 w the classic big butt but small waist that I am sure most everyone purchasing Fran Denim suffers from) they fit perfectly in the waist and hugged my legs greatly... but couldn't contain the cheeks... will have to return :(
I really loved these shorts. They fit perfect... until I realized the pockets in front are fake. Yeah, it is listed in the description but I was not expecting pockets to be fake so was not looking for it!
Will not be buying these shorts again. No front pockets in jean shorts is a deal breaker for me.
Fran denim for the win! I will be ordering more! I can move and breath in these! I’m 5’ tall, 128lbs and I’m wearing a size 24.
Cute shorts. I got the largest size and they're still a little tighter than I would like on my thighs. Would love one more size up.
These fit exactly based off the measurement chart. No waist gap, and my husband told me to order more!!!!!
I am 5’4 140lbs I ordered a size 29
These are amazing!!!! Hug alllll the right places! Super comfortable. Literally have purchased 3 pairs in less than 2 months time! Finally!!! A jean that fits this girls body!!!
For as long as I have been alive, finding pants and shorts that fit me has been a terrifying experience...until now! I was skeptical of buying shorts online, since I usually try on around 20 pairs before deciding to buy a mediocre-fitting pair. I lift heavy and have a muscular build, so I've always had to buy pants to fit my butt and thighs, then scrunch up the fabric around my waist and tie it down with a belt. Not ideal. These shorts fit me PERFECTLY! My thighs and cheeks don't bulge out the bottom, there is no extra fabric around my waist, and I can not even describe how incredible my butt looks in these shorts! I was so excited when I first put them on, I ran to my husband and said "LOOK!"
I am never the customer that reviews products, but I am SO grateful that I found Fran Denim! I'll be buying several more pairs of jeans and shorts. THANK YOU for making pants to fit strong, athletic women!!!
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!
Love them fit great!!
I love my new shorts. I was hesitant to try because of the price but lucked out that these were on sale so I gave it a shot and I LOVE them. I wish I could buy more, but I just can't afford the full price so I'll have to keep looking for ones I love to go on sale!
Really comfy and fits perfectly
First pair of Fran denim. Huge mountain biker and lifter. They fit like a dream and I would like more colors in this exact fit and length!
They fit like a glove! I was so happy to slip them on and feel the stretch and comfort as well as support.
These shorts are worth the money! I have always struggled with finding shorts and these fit like a dream. They are fitted through the leg, but the stretch is amazing and they’re very comfortable and lightweight. I normally wear a size 6 in jeans and bought the 27 based on the size chart. For reference I’m 5’6, 150 lb
Fit great love them
