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 have purchased other overpriced Cali “Athletic” jeans and was left hating my body because the sizes run so small- so I was skeptical in buying these. I am 5’4” and about 200lbs, I practice Krav and functional workouts 3-5xwk, and wear size 10/12 in Gap jeans but hate that they don’t fit my legs. These are amazing!!! I can confidently say I will only purchase Fran from now on!!!!!
These jeans are super cute, well made, and fit my curves nicely. But, be warned...they're really long. I know I'm relatively short (5'4" with short legs, lol), but even so these are still longer than I would have expected them to be. I like my boot cut and flares to be longer than my skinny jeans, but I do wish there were some different length options. But, I love these so much that I'll make it work! I highly recommend them!
I'm 5'5" and the bootcut jeans seem to be longer than the flare and skinny versions. I could wear them now with very high heels or else I'd have to hem them for sneakers. I wish Fran Denim were available in different lengths, to avoid the need for tailoring.
These jeans make me look like I have legs for miles. The fit through the thigh and butt is perfect. I don’t have much of a waist so they are a little snug on the waist but not uncomfortably so. I always have trouble with that issue. I am 5’8”tall, 158 lbs and a glorious 58 years old. I’m liking my new jeans a lot.
Finally jeans that fit an athletic build, and they made is the USA!
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
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!
These jeans were a little tighter upon arrival, but I've worn them 3 times and they've been stretching out well. This is my third pair of Fran Denim, and the bootcut fit is Extremely flattering! I have an hourglass figure and I felt so sexy the first time that I wore them -- and I wore them with a t-shirt!
For reference, I am 5'4", 140 pounds, and I ordered a size 27.
Every pair of jeans I buy never fit. It always feels like I’m Goldilocks, too big, to small, to long, to short. I’m 5’4, 120 pounds and ordered a 27 boot cut jean. I spin, hike and lift and I have never had a pair of jeans fit me like these did. I will be back for more.
I got hooked on Fran Denim a few years ago and their jeans never fail to deliver! So happy they finally released Nora, as I LIVE in bootcut jeans!! They fits perfectly and are extremely comfortable, not to mention durable!! Please make Nora in a stonewash!!
I have athletic thighs and a small waist. Never before have a pair of jeans fit so perfectly. I was nervous buying online without trying them on. I used the measurement guide and they fit great. Thank you!
Super comfy and a great fit.
I’ve been buying Fran denim for years! I’ve always had an athletic lower half due to soccer and never have been able to wear jeans that fit. I am 5’2”, 123lbs and wear a size 26. I prefer the crop or the petite high rise jeans.
They are good in that they do fit athletic build but are kinda thin and not the best style. They’ll work but not my favorite FD jean.I do like that they are shorter but will have to finish the bottom myself because it frays a lot with each wash.
These jeans fit great and are super comfortable. I wish I had sized down 1 size because they do stretch out quite a bit. I also would love to see this same style but with a finished edge at the ankle. Every time I wear them I have to cut off the frayed bits. The shipping was very fast and the customer service was fantastic. Will purchase from them again for sure!
Love that Fran is finally offering more options for those of us who don’t love the painted-on skinny Jean look. These are a little too “mom jeans” to wear going out for me personally, but a great comfy well-fitting option for running errands or hanging out. I am 5’3” 125# with narrow waist and hips, athletic butt and thighs. Typically wear a 25 in Joy and Kay Petite. 25 in these felt pretty big, even in the waist - returned for a 24. The crop isn’t really a crop on me, but looks good rolled to crop length so no issue really. Taller women would be fine. Also, I hope Fran makes these in a more medium-blue someday, the light wash here is particularly light and enhances the “mom jeans” factor, but dark wash is way too formal for me. Overall great option to the Fran lineup!
Ordered in my typical 28 (5'5", 150lbs, 41" hip) and they fit perfect. Love the fit if these, higher rise, not skin tight. Please, please, please make these in other washes!
I debated returning these but ended up keeping them because they actually do fit and it’s so hard for me to find jeans that fit. I didn’t realize that they were going to be ankle-length. I’m 5’8’ 165 and the 31’s fit my waist and have room in the hips but don’t even reach my ankle. The inseam is also very long -well above belly-button. It would be great if it were an inch or two shorter in the front.
All I can say is OMG!!! I am typically not an online clothes shopper.. I've always been "hard to fit" with thicker thighs and smaller waist and going out on a limb to purchase at these prices set my anxiety on high! BUT after reading all the reviews I took the leap of faith and ordered.. YES! I'm in heaven. Hands down the most comfortable jeans I have EVER owned. Fit is perfect. Style is perfect. Quality is amazing. I am a forever customer now!!! I am 5'5-1/2" 145lbs 35-36" Hips, 28" Waist and got a size 26 and the fit is absolutely perfect. They do have stretch and are looser after wearing a while but still very comfortable and flattering.
I have 4-5 pairs of Fran and this is my favorite so far. The most comfortable and I like the inseam length. I'm 5'1'' and weigh 125 and I got the 24. Is a little more roomy than other pairs of Fran I have but I actually like that. Some of the other Frans I have are a little tighter than I'd like. They fit me fine, but I like the extra room in the mom jeans. I would love a pair that fits similarly, but isn't quite as high rise.
Fran has to be my all time favorite jeans ever. I expanded my wardrobe with the Esme mom jean, and I was not disappointed. They run a teeny bit bigger than the other styles, but still fit with room for the peach and no gap at the waist.
I've been thinking about purchasing Fran denim for a while, but the price made me hesitate. I finally bought them as a birthday present for myself, and I'm so pleased that I did! When I put these jeans on, it was truly the first time I can remember ever pulling on pants and knowing they fit exactly as they should. I have always struggled to find pants that didn't have an enormous waist gap or too-tight thighs. Even "curvy fit" pants don't accommodate my athletic build. These are wonderfully comfortable and cute, and no tugging whatsoever to get them on. I love them, and I'm looking forward to getting more.
I ordered according to website recommendations (28) & had to exchange for a 31, which was fairly easy. Customer service reached out to me, to make sure the 31s would fit all my measurements. I’m Native American & an ice hockey goalie, so the 28s wouldn’t even go on over my 25 inch quads. The 31s fit perfectly! The waist is loose enough to tuck a shirt in comfortably, if I want, but not enough to slide down or gap at all. I got the flares so I don’t know if I’d have a problem with my 16 inch calves in the skinny jeans or not. The denim thickness & the super sturdy zipper are superior to FitJeans (their largest size was tighter than compression leggings & those were a nightmare to return; I had to file an application & wait for it to be approved). I’m 5ft 2, weight 162, with a 30 inch waist & 42 in hips (glutes), for additional reference.
I am glad I purchased these jeans - so comfortable! The only thing I wish was different was the length. I could’ve used an extra inch or two to make these jeans perfect!
love the feel and fit of these jeans, however the pockets just seem very off for me, too high (yes i know they are high rise) just dont get why pockets have to be so high up makes my bum look kind of flat :-( the rest of the fit is great i do love the feel and comfort of these jeans.
I’m 5ft 6 and 138lbs and bought size 28. I have a-line hips. I love these jeans! So stretchy and soft and they look great on my thighs and butt :D
Best pair of jeans ever!!!
So originally I ordered a size 30 and they fit great but was not as snug above the butt. Exchanged for size 29 and they fit amazing! I’m actually going to order another pair because they feel so good on. I might even size down one more since I’m trying to loose weight and they do loosen up a little after wearing them for a while. I’m 5’2 148-150lbs. They are definitely pricey, but so worth it! It’s better to have jeans that feel good, and look good than several cheap ones are uncomfortable and not flattering.
I first heard about Fran Demin on Instagram, and I wasn't sure if the cut was going to be for me. But, I've always been thicc through the thighs, and have had to size up in the past for that reason. And THEN I saw that they offered a petite flare jean, which I've been looking for forever. I'm 5'3" and the 30" inseam is perfect! They just barely graze the ground in the back with flats and look super cute with heels, too. I wasn't sure what size to order because I was in-between on both the measurement and height/weight charts, and I reached out to customer support. They got back to me, made a sizing recommendation and they fit PERFECTLY. These are totally worth the price tag.
Finally, jeans for ladies who lift!
This was my first Fran Denim purchase- I have 28” waist, 39.5 inch hips and 24.5 thighs- athletic build- these jeans in size 27 give the perfect stretch for my high level of movement even outside of the gym. More impressively still, they stay right in place! Furthermore, They do not loose shape by end of day- These jeans are awesome! I can get more done since I’m not spending any time adjusting my happy, jeans, and belt- I will be purchasing more! Thank you for a practical, dependable, product that compliments my angles and truly makes my day-
I have NEVER purchased a pair of pants which fit in the hips, waist, and inseam until buying these. They are fantastic. I am 5'3, 140 lbs, with a 26" natural waist, 28" pants waist, and 40" hips. I bought a size 27 and they fit like a nice, snug glove, with room to move and stretch in all the right places. If these end up discontinued or otherwise unavailable, I will be super disappointed!
It took me a long time to decide on a pair of jeans. I decided correctly!! These are my new favorites! I now need a pair without the distressing so I can wear them to work! They fit perfectly!
I am obsessed with these jeans and they are my new favorites. I am the same measurements and height as the model, but I have the molly shorts in a size 28 so I ordered both the 27 and 28s. Both fit great (comfortable in the bum/hips and no gaping at the waist) but since these jeans have a lot of stretch I went with the 27s because I was afraid the 28s would be too loose for my liking once they stretched out. They fit me just like they fit the model. I love the high waist and these are so flattering and comfortable I have been wearing them every day that I'm not working.
Love these cute jeans! I'm 5'3" 136 lbs and wear a 27 in Fran Denim Mika petite. I ordered two sizes and found that the 26 fit me best in these because they are cut with a little more room. Really cute and comfy! Can't wait to wear these all summer!
I love these pants. The only downside is the frayed bottom. There’s no seam to stop the fray from raveling in the washer. I’ll take them to get stitched because I love my Fran!
These are the best jeans I’ve ever worn. I’m 5’5 and weigh 160. I ordered a 30.
Super comfortable but I should have sized down.
