I had been on the fence to purchase these jeans, but after reading reviews and seeing pictures from real customers, I decided to buy…..super happy with my choice.
From the size chart I chose size 27 in the April jean. I have struggled since a little girl to find jeans that would not give me waist gap, but could house my booty. I’m built fairly lean but have always had a butt. Since taking up training, my butt and thighs have significantly increased. These jeans provide the perfect amount of stretch for my butt and thighs. The waist is still a bit too big, but for “bloat days”, it will be fine. I plan to purchase another pair, but in 26. For reference I’m about 5’7”, 27 waist, and 37 1/2 hip.
Definitely worth every penny!
April Super High Rise Skinny Medium Wash
I know these are skinny jeans but I think they run small; my other pairs of Fran are a 31 and they fit my 44/45” hips perfectly, but the Aprils are a bit smaller. Regardless of that, I love them and the high waist and the inseam length, and they give me the space my quads and glutes need. I’m always happy with the quality and workmanship of Fran, plus supporting American workers is important to me.
I have large legs and a small waist. These jeans are so comfortable and no tugging on the waist all day! They feel good and look even better! So glad I tried them. Worth every penny. I wear an 11-12 and ordered a 29! Perfect fit!
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.
I ordered a size 30. It’s too big! Not just loose fitting but actually too big. I’m hoping a 29 will fit. I would usually order a 29 but I needed a 30 for my other pair of Frans (Madison I think). I am 5’7.5”, 155lb and my thighs are 24in
Never have I ever… had shorts fit me like these! So excited to wear them all summer long!
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’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.
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 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.
These shorts are the best and really comfortable. They fit my waist and thighs. No gaps. I highly recommend them. I have muscular thighs and glutes and most shorts ride up.
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.
About sizing - I am 5' 5" and weight 135#. I measure at 28" waist, 37" hip, which according to the FD size chart puts me at a size 26. I own several pair of fran jeans, mostly in 26 with one pair of 25 and a pair of shorts at 26. All are fitting quite large in the waist, except for the 25. I decided to order a size down and went with a 25 and they fit perfectly snug and do loosen a bit throughout the day.
