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!
Great shorts, love the stretch, would love one more size up.
Love this brand. Fits like no other. size 27 5' 5" 135 lbs
I love these shorts! They fit to every curve and move with my body. The only thing I wish was that the folded over part at the end was sown b/c it flips open. I totally recommend these shorts.
These are my second pair of Molly shorts and I couldn’t be happier! They fit like a charm and are great for everyday use and dress up. I size down in my shorts and jeans!
Height: 5’ 5”
I have been searching for shorts like this for years! Having thick thighs and a small waist has always made finding shorts challenging but these fit well and are very comfortable! I will definitely be buying more!
I ordered these shorts 3 weeks ago and have yet to receive them. This is the 3rd time I have ordered from Fran Denim and it takes forever to get anything they send. I loved my other shorts but I ordered these for my vacation and they did not arrive in time. Will not order from them again.
I have been eyeballing these for a while! I am so happy I finally committed and purchased them. I am 5'4 (almost) and about 147 pounds. I am definitely more pear shaped, with some thick thighs.. I ordered a 27. They are tight on the way up but once they're on they fit perfectly. The shape of them lets me feel like I can move without fear of anything popping out. I also do need a belt, which is fantastic because the waist actually fits.
Fits my big butt and small waist perfectly!
I'm 5'4" at 182lbs and the size 31 fits me perfectly!!! Plenty of room for my thick thighs! Normally shorts/pants that fit my waist are too small for my thighs-not the case with Fran Denim! I'm going to be buying all my pants/shorts here from now on! Love love love!!!!
These are my new favorite shorts! I love the slightly longer inseam, as my generous booty likes to swallow shorter inseams....
They do stretch out so you want them to be snug when you pull them on. I wear a 31 in the boot cut and these shorts.
I love these! They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. The length is longer than the other styles but it’s not too long where I feel like I’m wearing Bermuda style shorts. I liked them even more when I realized I could cuff the bottoms and they’re still long enough to be appropriate to wear everywhere and now more versatile! I wish they made more washes! 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.
Soft fabric. They do run fitted. Slightly shorter than the 5" inseam listed.
5' tall and 136 lbs. Had to exchange for a larger size. 28
Fast and awesome service!
Love these! I wear a 24 in Fran—I’m 5’5”, athletic build (obvi), usually wear a size 0 in dresses. I have trouble finding pants that fit my small waist and strong glutes/thighs so recently, I’ve been purchasing high-rise pants and having the waist altered. These fit perfectly with no alterations! Super excited that I can wear a pair of shorts that FIT. I love the 5” inseam as someone in her mid-40s who wears clothes that are fitted/flattering but also just a bit modest.
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
