I have eyed Fran Denim for years now, but was never confident in sizing to actually purchase. I am 5'7" 76kg weightlifter usually weighing between 72-75kg and went with size 29. Perfect for thick legs, butt, and waist. Before I was wearing jeans from Lucky, which I also do like, and those were size 30 with the long size, but tight tight tight with not much give. After reading reviews I chose 29 from Fran Denim and they fit really well! The only change I would make for future orders is ordering a mid rise waist because the high rise is a high rise. Do it!!
I’ve been struggling to find a dark wash almost straight leg but almost skinny jean jeans for months. I have a booty, 30.5 waist, 41 hips, 6’0 feet tall and these (size 30) feel like they were made for me. I’ve worn them five or six times now, I roll the hems to wear w combat boots bc that's my pref, and the waist is a tiny snug but they have started molding to me. No bagging, sagging, or overstretching. They are light enough for all-season wear but tough enough for every day. I’m thrilled, this won’t be my last pair! Please please please do more colors of this style and a little bit more tapered leg opening!
I'm 5'6" 136 and I love the way these jeans fit!! So does my husband!! I'm wearing size 28.
I am 5'7" and 135lb. I wasn't sure whether to size up or down, but I have pretty narrow hips so I went with a 26. My legs have NEVER properly fit into jeans. I've been an athlete my whole life and had just resigned myself to pants never fitting properly. These pants honestly fit me like a glove. They loosen a bit, so the recommendation to have them fit snug at first is spot on, but they don't completely loosen. In the past I feel like jeans have fit for a day and then just gone all saggy if I sat for a while or walked - basically if I did anything. These stay tight and flattering no matter whether I bike, walk, squat, whatever. The stretch is great too. I am so psyched I finally went for it with these!
Love Fran Denim jeans! I’m small waisted with bigger thighs n glutes and finally a pair of jeans that fit. 5’4” and 109… size 24. Great since I’m lifting and getting stronger and now great fitting jeans!💗👍
I know these jeans are meant for a more athletic build, but I can tell you they work great for moms who have a little more junk in their trunk after having kids 😆 but really, I’ve always struggled to find jeans that fit my waist and don’t feel like they’re sucking the life out of my thighs. FranDenim jeans are perfect and comfortable and SOOO stretchy!! Perfect for my active life with little kids. I fully intend to buy at least 2 more pairs in the near future!!
Finally I found jeans that fit!! I’ve been on a never ending search for jeans that would fit over my thighs and booty without leaving that awful waist gap and ones that weren’t high waisted. These were perfect!! I ordered a size 29, but think I could’ve gone down to a size 28. For reference I am 5’4, 150lbs, 30 inch waist and 42 inches at the widest part of my hips.
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.
Great fit and get a lot of compliments!
Fit great for my small waist and curvier hips!
I finally broke down and spent the money for a pair of these jeans. They are totally worth every cent. They fit perfectly and I never have to pull them up! Seriously, I'm not just saying that! I wore them on Thanksgiving day and between cooking, eating, axe throwing and pulling a wagon with the grandkids, I never had to adjust these jeans. I was unsure about ordering them but after reading some reviews on how easy it was to return/exchange them, I went ahead and bit the bullet. I ordered a size 30, I'm 5'4" and weigh 160 lbs. Thanks, Fran Denim!
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 put these on to see how they break in and I just haven't taken them off. I have a very finicky hip that will start reacting to any clothing putting pressure in the wrong place, but so far no issues with these. I'm so excited! I never thought I'd be able to wear jeans all day again!
These are size 28 and are a comfy, relaxed fit for me after a few hours. Could probably take in the waistband an inch or two but it's not really an issue. I think I could wear 27 if I wanted them a little tighter.
These jeans are great! No back gaps fit my legs and waist
Finally found a company that actually makes well fitting, comfortable, and good looking jeans for my thighs without gapping at my waist!
Stats: 5'5", 129 lb, BMI 22, waist 29", hips 39", thigh 22", 55 yo grandmother. Purchased size 26 Ellen Flare Dark Wash jeans based on model measurements, customer comments, and size chart. Stretchy jean of excellent quality. Back waist gap is non-existent. Does not inhibit range of motion.
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!
So happy to find a jean for athletic fit women! I am a customer for life now!
This was my second pair ordered & love them!
Jeans arrived today and they fit great except I ordered a medium wash and what came was a dark wash. Not even close to advertised photo.Very disappointing as already have dark wash jeans ( different brand)and the only reason I ordered them was to get a lighter wash.waste of shipping fee.
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’ve bought 2 pairs of Fran denim, I have loved both styles
Seriously, these jeans fit like they were tailored just for my body, they’re so soft and comfortable. I could wear them all day everyday!
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.
Love the fit in hips/thighs/waist but even petite sizing is too long. I'm 5'2" and unless I wear these with high heels, which I won't, I'll need to have them altered.
My Granddaughter loved these so much I had to buy her 2 more pair!
I myself have 2 pair... We both love them!
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!
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!!!
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.
I wanted something to add to my FD collection that was not skinny jeans,
(LOVE the Nicole style) so I tried these out. I'm 5'4, 150lbs typically a 27 in FD. I ordered these in 27 and 28. The high waist is a bit weirdly high, but I've elected to keep the 28. The smaller size was just a tiny bit snug for jeans that I wanted to fit more loosely. They are definitely loose in hips/legs. I think these will be cute with all kinds of outfits, they are comfortable and the wash is great. I'd love a straight leg style with a short inseam and a waist like Nicole that does not have a raw hem. Looking forward to more styles from you FD!
I’ve only purchased jeans from Fran Denim since 2018. These are my new favorites. I’m only 4’-11” and these fit me as regular length jeans without needed hemmed, and they still fit perfectly. Love them! They are very comfy and fit me perfectly.
