super comfy. 5'6" 180 lbs.
My wife looks amazing in these!
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!
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’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 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.
Nice to find a pair of shorts that fit thicker thighs and doesn't ride low in the back. Hubby is a fan too.
Love these shorts! So nice to finally find a pair that fits my waist and thighs!!
Fits perfectly, like a glove and there is no gaping areas around the waist!
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 !
Wife loves all three shorts. She's able to work out in them and go on hikes.
I am so happy I found these shorts. I love that I don’t need a belt and they fit in the seat!
These shorts are fire and if you wear them, your husband will not stop touching your bum.
It's nice to actually find shorts that don't gap in the back, or squash my butt flat. I wish there was an option for a longer inseam, but overall I'm happy with them.
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.
I love these shorts. I’m 5’2” 165 lbs. I bought a 29 and they are snug but still comfy. I could definitely comfortably go up to a 30. They are worth every penny.
I have always had thick thighs and these fit perfect!
LOVE the camo option - fabric is slightly thicker and a little less stretchy than other Fran shorts, which is great. Seems higher quality. I made the mistake of buying one size up (26) from my normal wanting a comfortable fit, and they were huge! Ended up returning for a size DOWN (24) from my typical. Maybe consider sizing down if you don’t want a little more relaxed fit? Could also just be my body shape in this style. 5’3” 125# narrow hips and waist, athletic butt and thighs.
These shirts fit perfectly and are very flattering. I am 5’4, 130 pounds and got a 26. My waist is 25 but I didnt want it super fitted. It fits perfect.
I love these shorts! Just the right amount of stretch and true to size! have five pairs of Fran Denim shorts and I love them all! For reference I am 5'5' 145 pounds and wear a 29 .
I’ve been trying to find Jean shorts that fit for months. Everything gave me back gap. These don’t, they fit like a glove! Highly recommend. 5’4” 130lbs purchased size 26
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. ❤️
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!
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.
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 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
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!!
I have always struggled with shorts that fit correctly...I have a booty and muscular thighs, but a small waist. I always have a big gap in the waist if the shorts fit my booty. These are the best! Perfect fit, perfect length (I don't want booty hanging out!) and no ride-up! I am 5'1", 130lbs and I wear size 28.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I love these shorts. The material is so soft, there is no waist gap or muffin top, and the shorts stay put on my thighs. I've never felt like I look good in denim shorts until now. If they came in different colors, I'd buy every one.
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!
