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!
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.
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.
awesome shorts. they look great on my wife and she says they’re true to size
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!
Very stretchy and comfortable!
I’m 5’5 135# waist 32” (bellybutton) hips 37”
I ordered a 28
Love these shorts. They are just stretchy enough, super soft and fit like a glove. I do wish Fran Denim had an option in shorts for “super high waist” like they do in pants - the rise on these are still a ways under my belly button. But still super cute!
For reference I am 5’9” 155 lbs, waist 30, hips 40 and ordered the 28.
These are my first pair of Fran shorts and I’m absolutely in love! I’ve always had to choose between being too baggy in the waist or in the butt and it was a novel experience to actually feel both fit at the same time. For me, they were true to size based on my measurements, but I kind of like to hike them up so that they are high waisted, and I feel like I could’ve gone a size down to make them a little tighter on my lower abdomen. Other than that they are perfect and I feel so confident in them. I will definitely be purchasing more shorts.
I ordered a 28 and I am 150 lbs, 29” waist, 39” hips.
These are my new favorite shorts. I’m 6’ tall, 170 lbs and I ordered a 29. I usually wear an 8-10.
I love that they don’t ride up and are snug enough around my waist but not too tight in my booty or thighs!!
These shorts are amazing. I love the high waist, stretchy thigh and shorter hemline. These have allowed me to feel mom appropriate without wearing long shorts. As a crossfitter I've struggled to find shorts this year. Fran denim had become my go to.
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 😃
I have a pair of 27 jeans that I love, but not going to lie...the waist has gotten a little tighter this summer! I decided to order a 28 in these shorts and they are so cute! They fit perfectly and the color makes my tan luscious. I wore them to dinner last night and my boyfriend IMMEDIATELY told me how much he loved my shorts "are they new?" he asked, "I would have definitely noticed those if you wore them before!"
Highly recommend and I will be getting pair, for sure.
I have two pairs of the full length jeans in size 29, but they are a bit loose, so I decided to try the shorts in a size 28. Pulling them out of the package, I thought there is no way they are going to fit. I laid them on top of my long jeans, and there was at least an inch on each side of the waistband, meaning the waist is about 4 inches smaller! I was shocked there was such a huge size difference between a 28 and a 29. They did pull on (amazingly), and I could button and zip them. They fit like a glove and actually look really cute, even they are a little uncomfortable until they stretch out, and they are tighter in the crotch than I would normally wear. But, they do look so cute that I decided to keep them, because I figured that if I got a size 29 they would be way too big like my long jeans. I'm 5' 10.5" tall and weigh 159 lbs. My waist is 31" and my hips are 42.5".
About sizing - I am 5' 5" and weight 135#. I measure at 28" waist, 37" hip, which according to the FD size chart puts me at a size 26. I own several pair of fran jeans, mostly in 26 with one pair of 25 and a pair of shorts at 26. All are fitting quite large in the waist, except for the 25. I decided to order a size down and went with a 25 and they fit perfectly snug and do loosen a bit throughout the day.
I'm so happy. I finally own shorts that don't ride up. These are roomy and flattering and I'm so happy to have them. Thanks, Fran! I'm 5'10", 160, wide hips, and comfortably wearing a 29...I almost swapped them for a 30 but as with my jeans, they stretch.
