I absolutely love these jeans! I will never find another brand that fits my body the way these jeans fit! I also really like how I don't feel constricted when I move and don't have to constantly pull them up!
I'm 5'4", 132 pounds with a 30.5 inch waist.
I am 27 years old, weigh 170lbs and im 5' 6" and I have 24" thighs and let me tell you...THESE ARE AMAZING. I have super muscular thighs that are thicker than a bowl of oatmeal and ive ALWAYS struggled to find jeans that don't suffocate my calves and thighs. I am always stuck with the seam embedded into my legs from crotch to ankle with all jeans I wear. but not these! they FIT!! they are comfortable and fit so well. highly recommend anyone with big legs to rock these babies! I will never buy any other brand again!
I’m 5’4, 132#, got size 27 and they are great!
Welp, these jeans ruined all other jeans for me. I was wary of these because unfortunately, I'm not a fitness model. I'm tall with a big ass and all jeans, high rise or not have a tendency to slide down and show off that crack. These passed the test! And they look damn good too. I can't wait to see if the shorts work as well.
Love my jeans!! They fit great, are comfortable and I'm super excited that there's no back gap! I'm 5'4, 130lbs with an athlete build and size 27 fit perfect. I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks Fran Denim!!!
I am 5'5" and 138 pounds, with large thighs, 30" waist and 39" hips. I bought the medium wash Nicole jeans in size 28. I will say that the color was a bit darker than the photos indicate, as the wash was really somewhere between medium and dark. These jeans fit really, really well, with plenty of room for my legs and butt, and a high enough rise that I don't have to keep pulling them up, even after sitting down. The ratio of stretch to support is perfect, as they are snug, but still very comfortable. My only issue was that I do still have a small waist gap in the back, but nothing like the huge gaping pocket of denim that "normal" jeans give me. I liked them so much, I ordered two more pair!
I’m 5’9 and 170 pounds. I ordered size 31 based off I already have two pairs of shorts and one pair of jeans in that size and I love the fit and the fact that they were American made. So I ordered a couple more assuming they would be the same. I should have done my research because the Nicole is not American made. And the fit and quality doesn’t feel the same as my other 3 pairs. I still like them, but not as much as my other pairs, which I LOVE. Regardless, I love that this brand offers jeans that actually fit and look good and I hope they continue to restock other styles in the “larger” sizes. Also shipping was super fast. :)
The extra room in the thighs of these jeans are great! Unfortunately for me though, the calves are still a bit too snug until the second wearing between washes and I hate to say it but…I’ve still got a waist gap. Maybe if I had gotten a size smaller it could have helped with the waist gap but considering the snug calves, I’m glad I didn’t. For reference, I bought a size 32 and my waist measures 34”, hips 44.5”, I’m 5’5” with a medium length torso. These definitely still fit better than any other jeans I own so no real complaints, I just had very high hopes about Fran Denim’s claim to no waist gap. Oh, I got these in both the medium and dark washes and for some reason the fit is slightly different (med wash seems just slightly larger than the dark) but it’s not too noticeable. If the thighs hold up to regular wear then I’ll still order again.
I wear a size 32, high rise jeans. My hips are 40 inches, my waist is 35 inches and I am 5 ' 4" . These are the best jeans that actually go over my thighs and butt. Jeans in the dept store were always too small. I have been lifting weights for 39 years and so it is difficult to find jeans for an athletic form. Fran denim jeans are wonderful. I couldn't have been happier with my selection.
Everything you read about these jeans is true. Trust me you will not regret this purchase. I will never buy another brand of jeans for myself again. Best fit, and so comfortable and best of all flattering! You also don’t spend all day pulling them up like other jeans.
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
I am normally a size 28 in jeans (I'm 5'7", 155lb, 29" high waist, 31" waist at belly button, 40" booty) and this also fits the Fran sizing. Because of the recommendation on the website to size up for the black Julie jeans, I ordered a 29. After wearing them once, they are baggy on the waist! I wish I had ordered the correct size 28. I also ordered another pair of jeans from Fran in size 28 and they fit perfectly. So if you size yourself to fit properly, I do not recommend going one size up for these black jeans.
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
I have a pair of dark wash Nicole High Rise Skinnies, but I really wanted a pair in black and the only ones available were the Julie. I think I like the fit of the Nicole a little bit better, but the Julie is still a great pair of quality jeans.
All my life I have had quads. Due to genetics, sports (track) and dance. FINALLY someone thought to design jeans fit girls with QUADS!! And even better they chose a tag line that didn’t body shame us!! “For the dedicated” ❤️❤️❤️
I guess I am doomed to never be able to find pants that fit my small waist and huge booty and thighs well. I was really excited for these because everyone raved about catering to the athletic body. I am definitely bottom heavy but I have a really small waist and even these didn't work for me. I still gave 4 stars though because it isn't the companies fault my body is lame :( I am 5'-6" and 178 pounds.
I’m loving these-the exposed button fly is so cute! Perfect rise, and inseam length. I’m 5’4” 170ish with 31” waist and 44” hip. I ordered a size 29 and they fit like a glove. Great stretch/give in the fabric and they don’t get baggy with wear.
Was looking for a slightly different Jean style than what I already had. These are very cute and fit perfectly
5'2", 140 lb, athletic build (from Olympic weightlifting), size 26
The first time I put them on, it was love. Plain and simple, these jeans are amazing. This is my first pair of FD jeans.
A few notes:
- I was on the fence for months, as it sounds like many people were. How could they really be as good as they sounded? Well, to me, they are.
- I am a 27 in other brands, and even after comparing against the measurement chart and seeming to be a 27 in FD, I followed the advice of some reviewers and went a size down for a snug fit. BEST decision ever. They fit beautifully to my preference, like a second skin.
- Some reviewers mentioned the "flat-bottom" look the jeans gave them. I have an average-sized butt and thought the same when I first put them on. However, after a few times wearing them and a time or two through the wash, they loosened up a bit and that "flat-bottom" look doesn't seem to be a problem anymore.
The long and sort of it is: I recommend buying these jeans, possibly a size down, and not being too afraid of a slightly flat bottom when you first pull them on. Just do a squat, feel how they move with you, and marvel at the miracle. Thanks, FD.
These jeans are awesome! I have a short, narrow waist and bigger hips and thighs and jeans slide ride down or are uncomfortably tight in the waist to keep them on…Fran Jeans fit amazing and feel good on and stay up perfectly!!
I ordered the April Super High Rise in a medium wash, size 28 and they are the most comfortable jeans I own, though I felt like they were a tad too loose around the waist. Thus, when I ordered a second pair on the Dark Wash, I went with a size 27. I can get them over the hips and zipped, but they're definitely on the tighter side! I love the way they look and the fit is almost perfect on a low-carb, bloat-free day. I've kept them as my "goal pants" in hopes that they become a more appropriate fit in the next month or so. I'm not sure if the sizing varies between washes or if I truly am just in between sizes.
5'9", 164lbs, 29" waist, 43" hips
I had previously tried these in a 29, which is my size in the Mika petite version fo this jean. But, I decided to try sizing down to a 28. AMAZING! I love Fran demon in general. Mika/Iris/All the shorts. But, these high rise Aprils are just my absolute favorite! I hope you make more medium washes in the April. Maybe a medium wash destruction?
5’4” 155lbs size 28
They stretch quite a bit when you wear them. I for sure could have sized down at least 1 size, they feel a little big once I wear them.
I am IN LOVE with these jeans! I've never found anything that fits me so well. I am so excited not to have that terrible waist gap I had just decided was inevitable. I'd love to see more options in the cropped/petite realm. I'm 5'3" 133 pounds and the 27 fit me perfectly, although still just a touch longer than I usually wear.
Totally in love!
I’m 5’2.5, 130 lbs. I ordered a 27, they are pretty tight but they have already started to stretch out. Super comfortable! Fit is perfect for my thigh booty and thighs, and thin waist.
Jean shopping has always been a fraught and esteem-destroying exercise, and then I found Fran. I literally teared up from happiness when I saw the models that had muscles and curves like mine. This is my third pair. Thank you for making these. I'm 5'3", 150lbs.
I am a petite (5'2") thicc (175#) lady and these fit great! They're stretchy so they work well if you are little in the middle but you got much back. They also definitely do not have the dreaded gapping at the waist. The length works great for me and the fabric and construction are both high quality. Definitely recommend.
A little baggy in the rear. Slightly higher waist than I was expecting. Was hoping for more of a mid-rise cut. I am 5’6” and 155 pounds.
I love the feel of these jeans and the fact that they fit perfectly in the booty, legs and waist. My hubby loves them too! ;) My only wish is that they came in a short version. I'm 5'1" and have to roll them up to not be socks too. Maybe make short lengths for us that are vertically challenged? 5'1', 130 lbs size 28.
For reference, I am 5’7, 155 pounds and ordered size 28. About a year ago I started lifting more and working on strength training. I quickly noticed that my normal jeans were getting tight in the leg and leaving that awful gap in the back. I ordered Fran Denim because I needed a pair of jeans that fit to wear to work (casual but I also need to look professional!). The minute I put these on I knew they were the best jeans I’ve ever worn. They fit perfectly and the material is so soft. I wore them to work yesterday and I was so comfortable. Once my size is restocked I will absolutely be buying more!!
Madison Straight Leg Jean Dark Wash
I have always hated shopping for jeans because of my muscular legs. I heard about Fran Denim from a Marco Counting group I joined.... after repeated praise in the group I finally ordered these jeans. They shipped fast and are true to the claim of having room for athletic thighs with a waist that fits. I can't wait to try other styles!
I’m 5’2” and 125 lbs and wear a 24. The fit is great. Waist fits, thighs still a little tight but if I go up in size then there is extra fabric in front.
The only reason is not full stars 1: I had to cut the ankles of because I couldn’t fit my foot through the stitched opening (I wear a size 6 shoe, my feet are not big) 2: the medium wash is the same exact color as my Eva crop distressed dark wash jeans. I was hoping for lighter. Photo is to show color of jeans.
These fit like a dream and I always get compliments when I wear them. I'm 5'4" and 175 pounds. Both the 31" and 32" fit.
Great fit! I'm 5'2" 120lbs. I ordered size 26. I was afraid they would be too small as my other jeans are 27's (which was sold out). But they are perfect!
I now have about 5 pairs of Fran Demins. All the Mika washes (dark / destruction / medium) and then the Iris (button fly / both the dark / medium wash) they all fit me very similar and wonderfully. Easy to move / comfy all day / doesn’t stretch out to not fit property / and they make my bum look great! I’m hoping they wear over time because that is the only box that I haven’t yet tested! I’m just und 5’5’’ and ordered the 29’s.
Absolutely the best Denim ever!! One of many styles I wear...
Emma Long Inseam High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
I’m 5’10”, weigh 160 lbs. Proportionally I have much larger quads and glutes compared to my waist, but there is still a significant gap in the jeans at my waist. I want to love them. Great color and length and just the right amount of stretch. Also love the durability and quality of material. Luckily my thighs and glutes keep them from falling, but the space between my waist and waist band of the jean is a few inches.
I’m 5’10, 170 #. I struggle with finding jeans that fit properly. I have bigger thighs and a smaller waist as well as bigger calves. I don’t like when they are too snug in certain places, when I have to yank them up in order to sit or having to adjust all the time. I finally caved and splurged on these jeans and they are so comfortable. I can literally walk around doing squats in them if I wanted to. The long inseam are *almost* too long but I like having the option to cuff them at the bottom! My only complaint is they do stretch a little bit so they become looser around my knees and right below my belt loops on my backside but I think the smaller size may have been too tight. I did follow the size guide and ordered a 29. Overall, I am loving my purchase and I’m going to be buying more!
I wear a 10/12 , 5ft 10. 34 Inseam. These jeans were the PERFECT Length for me. Also the Waist height is perfectly over my belly button, and I have a long torso. I saw the model wearing this style and she looked like my same build and height so I got size 31, but I could have worn a 30 Also as they have a lot of stretch. I will for sure buy another pair!
Loving this cut! Incredibly comfortable - my go-to denim every time.
5’10” - 160lbs. Size 28
I bought these hoping for a looser fit, but they are as tight, if not tighter than the Nicoles that I bought in the same size: so they’re really somewhere in between a skinny jean and a boot cut at the ankles. Good things: great colour, perfect length in the legs and in the rise (waist)
Too long, and really fit like a skinny jean. I’m over skinny jeans, I want a jean that makes my butt look good and is flattering for muscular legs but leaves a little to the imagination. The waist isn’t too high, that’s another fad I cannot wait to end. Give me that mid rise jean. Size 27, 5’4, 137lbs.
I am everything the advertisements talk about: thick thighs and a big booty with a narrow waist. Jeans are either too narrow for my thighs, so they’re constantly being pulled down, or I buy a pair with a larger waist to fit over my butt. Both of these situations result in an uncomfortable fit all day. THESE Fran Denim jeans are the solution! I’ve now worn mine 5 times before I had to wash them and they’re absolutely perfect. They’re not working themselves down all day and they fit over my butt and at my waist at the same time. I’m so in love! For reference, I’m 5’5”, 180 lbs. and I have an almost 10” difference between my waist and my “hips”. I normally wore a size 12 and just suffered through the thigh issues. I ordered a 31 in the Madison fit and I’ll be ordering more in the future!
I’m 5’5” and about 155. I ordered a size 28 and it’s excellent. They don’t gap or slide down, which is exceptional for jeans for me. Very happy with this purchase.
For the first time in my life I have a pair of jeans that fits my waist and my booty too. I don’t feel like I’m picking up my jeans from the waist down constantly… They don’t slide down. Excited for my next pair
I was very pleased when I received my jeans. I ordered the Emma Long High Rise Skinny.
I typically wear a 30 in regular jeans, I ordered a 29... now as I wear them, I could have gone to a 28. They do stretch quite a bit while you wear them.
I will certainly order again!
I recommend going 2 sizes down.
I am 5'7" (ish) and 160lbs with a "strong build" as they say... I bought size 29 (I maybe could've sized down, but idk, these fit pretty darn well). I am ALWAYS having trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs but also are snug on my waist. These jeans do just that- they are stretchy enough to hug my thighs and the high waist leaves no gap at my waist. The zipper is also high quality and little details like that matter. Would definitely recommend to other lifters and women with similar body type- thankful for my Fran Denim jeans!
These by far are my favorite jeans. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for the last 12 years - and they can’t hold on much longer. I have been looking for the perfect pair of jeans to fit my thick legs and bottom. I’ve tried other jeans with similar material and they would always slide down. These jeans stay put! I’m 5’9” and 186lbs and the 30” fit me like a glove. Bought another pair already!
Love the fit of these jeans. The fabric feels like a good quality, not flimsy, and they hold their form well after a few days of wearing. I just wish there were more colors! 5’9” 170, size 29 fit great.
Love these jeans! They are my go-to. The shorts are great too! I wish the flare style came in a long inseam though I would be 100% on board with wearing more than just skinny jeans
If you follow the size chart, you should get perfect fit. I am 5’8”, and wish these were longer.. but I’ll wear them with flats. Fran denim is the first pair of jeans I can wear without having the waist altered!! High Five!
Very comfortable, you dont have to worry about plumbers crack when squatting. Plenty of stretch for muscular legs and glutes. I only wish they had longer inseams around 34” (size 27) as im 5’ 6” 140lbs. Need longer inseams for bootcut styles, they have a few for skinny leg styles. These were around 32”- 33” inseam. The other brand of bootcut I bought were even shorter for my liking so had to return them. Otherwise these jeans would be perfect.
I'm 5'5 and 140lbs. These arrived yesterday and they fit! The inseam was not too long for me - it was perfect. I ordered a size 28, my waist fit the measurements for 27 and my hips fit the measurements for 29. No waist gap was the nicest surprise!
Finally - jeans that fit! In addition to big ass and thigh - I had a long torso, so the high waisted is great!
These are my favorite jeans to wear! I get more compliments on how my legs and butt look in these!
I bought these in a 31. I’m 5’5” and weigh around 160. They are very snug at first, but stretch out enough to be comfortable, but not baggy.
These jeans are very soft and fit great. I will definitely order more!
A perfect skinny fit with buttons that lay perfectly and don’t stab you when you sit down. My only critic is they are a tad short I am 5’5” with a 29”inseam, they come to the top of my ankle bone which might be an issue if you have longer legs.
Thought they were too tight at first but after a short time wearing them they fit perfectly. Recommend sizing down or right at so they stay a little snug. Also very cute and love the button fly.
I am 5'5", 175lbs, softer shape, and got a size 31. I'm softer in the waist and have trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs and that don't cut off circulation at the knee! These fit great! I realized after I ordered they come up to 1-2" above my ankle so a bit shorter than other jeans that I have purchased from here (which I roll up a cuff for). Love the fit and that they fit my thighs without a huge gap at the waist. I love that I can squat in these with no problem! The button fly is awesome and super cute.
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
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.
Ordered a size 27.
I measured between a 27 and 28 so I opted to size down, and I love them.
So these arrived on leg day, all inflamed and at my most bloated... and they fit. After wearing them all day today, they fit even better.
No more adjusting the waist every 30 seconds. They dont bunch and slide off my ass when I bend over. Theres ROOM for my butt and thighs?! And I dont mean to be dramatic... but the waist hugs so perfectly. In a way I have never felt. Secure, snug but not uncomfortable.... and girl, I had like 4 huge sushi rolls right before this picture.
The one thing I'll point out is at almost 5'8, this rise sits different- significantly lower- compared to the model. I actually picked this super high rise vs. regular high rise because this one is made in America, but this one likely fits me better anyway. With the exception that it may irritate my belly button ring after awhile.
Super happy. Going to order another style now.
The jeans are a perfect fit for my daughter’s athletic build. Thank you, Fran Denim!!!
I’m 5’9” with a 29” waist and 42” hips and ordered a size 28. I was surprised by how well these fit. I had about a 2 second worry they wouldn’t go up but they slid on and zipped easy peasy. I may be able to get away with a 27 but I kind of like the extra room. I love how they look and while I never thought I could use “jeans” and “comfortable” in the same sentence, MY GOD THESE JEANS ARE ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I can bend, lounge, move and am not constantly having to pull them up to make sure my butt hasn’t fallen out. Total win. Will be buying more pairs in different washes.
These are wonderful! I’m a 29 in the Mika, ordered a 28 in three! Absolutely perfect! I’m just under 5’5”
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!
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 love these!! I’ve always wanted a pair of cutoffs that fit loose in the legs but they are always tight because of my quads and booty. These fit just like I wanted in the legs and waist at the same time! I am 5’7,160lbs (4 months postpartum, about 10lbs over pre-baby weight but got the same size as my other Fran shorts). Size 28. Will purchase these same pair again if they make more colors!
I was nervous to buy these without any reviews, but I'm so glad I took a chance on them. As with all my Fran Denim jeans and shorts, these fit perfectly and have no waist gap! For reference, I'm 5'6 and about 140 lbs. I usually wear a small or size 4 bottom, and the size 26 Frans fit perfectly.
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!
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 :)
The jeans are great, super stretchy, very comfortable, and they don't squeeze and flatten my hips/thighs like most do. However, they are too big. I went by the sizing chart: My hips actually aligned with size 31, my waist with size 30. I went with size 30 to avoid the bunchy waist that you often get with high waist pants that aren't sized correctly. Turns out, I should have gone with size 29, as the waist is still much too big and bunches up, also leaving a small gap. For reference: I am 5'8'' and 170 lbs.
This, however, will not deter me from wearing these pants or buying others; I think I will just size down on the next order. Still very much a fan of the company, brand, and product.
These are so cute on! They’re not AS tight as my other Fran jeans in the same size but they look like they’re suppose to fit that way because of the camo print. They are super soft and comfortable but don’t feel like they’re going to stretch out after wearing them. 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. These are a little long but I could get away with cuffing the bottoms or not.
Love the way these fit. I’m 5’7 150lbs.
I now own 5 pair of Fran Denim Jeans and look forward to my next pair.
Love them! Best jeans ever!!!
my ONLY complaint was the style I bought, the website said to size up, which i did, and they ended up too big. If I had ordered my "normal' size they would have been fine. Otherwise, I LOVE them. Nice construction, minimal gaps (there are some because they are too big) . I will definitely get more, the right size. I'm 5'7", 125 lbs (think ballerina body) and bought a 26. Should have bought a 25. The chart is exactly correct for me for "normal" sizing.
