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.
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.
I’m 5’8” and 150lbs and ordered the 25 originally, I could button them but they were too tight. I then ordered the 27, but Fran Denim called me to let me know this batch was fitting more true to size so to go with the 26. They fit great! Snug around my waist, but stretch in the legs. Thank goodness for Fran Denim! Hoping for more colors in the Molly design as I don’t love frayed shorts.
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 😉
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!
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!
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!
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.

I'm 5'2 112lbs bought size 24. Waist 27" hips widest part 35". Best fitting jeans for muscular build!! Love them, fit perfectly.
I wasn’t sure how these would fit but purchased them because they advertised as fitting a more muscular body type. I typically buy size 6 (5’5, 137lbs) just to have room for my thighs and bootie. I got 2 pairs of Fran denims, one 29 and one size 28 because I wasn't sure how they would fit. The 28 are perfect. Very comfortable. Nice style and stretch. No gapping at the waist, which is a nice change for I’m my usual jeans. Very pleased with purchase.
5’0” 125lb but much softer in the mid section than these models. 26 is tight just around the waist- . Cant tell if it’s appropriate or if it will stretch but I am ordering a 27 to compare the two then send one back - but if my belly was toned the 26 would be perfect and flattering :)
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 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.
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 jeans are the most flattering jeans I’ve ever owned. Never have I ever gotten so many compliments on jeans! Comfortable and great style.
I’m in love with these jeans. I’m 5’4” and between 135 and 140 pounds. I originally purchased the 28. After wearing them, they loosened up a little too much, but I still loved them and kept them. I went and got another pair (the dark destruction) in a 27. The 27 fits absolutely perfectly. They’re so incredibly comfortable and fit like a dream. They’re the perfect length, don’t make my thighs or butt feel squished and fit perfectly around the waist. My body is longer than my legs, so this petite length is perfect!
I love these pants. They fit perfectly and they feel great. I am 5’6” 145 lbs with muscular legs and a small waist.
I am 5’4” and 125-130lbs. My waist is 25” and hips are 39” & a size 25 fits like a glove. I have always had a hard time finding jeans that fit my butt/ hips & my waist & now that I lift heavy it’s even worse, but not anymore! I don’t even have to wear a belt! I now own 3 pairs of jeans from Fran and LOVE every pair!
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
Job well done!! I have never found a pair of jeans that fit perfect feel soft and make my ass look great. Hands down best pair of jeans I have ever purchased. I have thick thighs and a peach to along with it so finding jeans is hard. Either they’re too loose and I look like I’m wearing guys jeans or I can’t even fit my legs in them. Thank you! thank you!, for designing jeans for athletes!!! Not just skinny girls who say they workout. Will definitely be purchasing more. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
These are true to what they advertise. There’s no waist gap. They stay up. They make my lower body look AMAZING. I am sincerely amazed and thrilled with these and I look forward to buying more. I’ve been showing them off and giving reviews on Facebook and recommending them to everyone ❤️
I have been eyeing Fran Denim for a while and SO happy I finally ordered my first pair! I am 5'8.5",148 lbs, and typically a size 6/27. I ordered a 27 and at first thought maybe I should size up, primarily because the waist is a bit tight. However after 2nd try on (not even wear) I can tell that the reviews about allowing them to be a bit tight at first are right - definitely sticking with this size as they have plenty of stretch and are already comfortable. FD is everything that athletic ladies have been raving about.. it feels nice to know that most jeans are made wrong - not me/my body ;) THANK YOU!! ***PS PLEASE make Nicole high rise in BLACK with destruction/distressing!!***
Love these jeans! They are comfortable, they fit perfect!!!
Looks nice very comfortable to wear. I am a fan of FranDenim love the clothes and the great quality on the materials
These pants are great for those who have thick thighs and a booty! I’m 5’2” and hover around 145 lbs. My legs and butt have been getting bigger due to all the lifting I’ve been going and no longer fit in my jeans! Enter Frandenim! They fit great. There soft and stretchy and fit in all the right places. I can now continue to do all the squats and still look and feel good in my jeans!
I love these jeans! The rips are in the perfect place, when I bend my knees I don’t have to worry about the holes getting bigger.
These are multi-purpose in my book! I love that I am able to wear them when I’m in shape, but they are also my PERFECT mom jeans! I am 7 months post baby, 5’7 and 169lbs, and the size 29 fits great. I’m so happy with these jeans. A MUST BUY!
I love ripped jeans and saw these new ones and had to give them a try. I have been working out and found my butt and thighs to thic for regular jeans. I am 5'1" 115 lbs. Finding high rise jeans that will not pucker at the waist and not suffocate my legs and butt seems hard to find anymore. These are also my first Fran jeans and I am so satisfied with my purchase! I really like the placement of the rips as well on the jeans too. Jeans are very good quality, the zipper isn't cheap, great color, they feel nice and comfy as well! I hope Fran makes more ripped jeans and maybe Mom Jeans too! So worth the price!
