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 😉
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 have a very small waist and muscular thighs; these shorts fit perfectly! I’m 5’3” and 115lbs, and ordered a size 25.
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!
Great shorts, love the stretch, would love one more size up.
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.
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 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!
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!
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!
Best fit I've ever had, super comfy, and absolutely adorable! Easily my favorite denim shorts!
These shorts are awesome and give full ass coverage. Please make these in more styles and washes :)
I've never had a better fitting pair of shorts in my whole life. No joke. I have naturally thick quads and booty in addition to following Paragon Training Methods so the dreaded waist gap vs. strangled thighs has always been a struggle. These shorts fit SO PERFECT. Lots of room for the glutes and also small enough in the waist plus just enough stretch for comfortable all day wear. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
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!
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’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 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 an absolute fave! I wear them all the time. They’re flattering, comfortable, have room for my butt and quads, but hug in all the right places!
5'9" 155lbs size29. fits perfect!
❤️ my purchase. They fit perfect and are stretchy and super comfortable. I’m 5’5” -150lbs ordered size 27.
Absolutely love these shorts! Worth every penny.
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.
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!!
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.
