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.
Most comfortable and flattering shorts I’ve owned!
Customer service was awesome, communications was quick and informative. Shorts came and are high quality and exactly as I had hoped to get.
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!
These jeans are the perfect “go to” jean. They are easy to dress up or down. They are comfortable from the minute you put them on and stay that way all day. Easy to care for and durable!
Size 29 (I like mine a little lose).
Very comfortable, good movement. Fit 5'8", 150 lbs, woman
I am 5’8”, approx 153 lbs and I ordered a 29 in these. I do enjoy the relaxed fit, I will say that the crotch area sits a bit low and did cause some discomfort, unpleasant bunching. These were also a bit buggy under the bum. Overall, they are comfortable, I do like the length inseam wise. I DO enjoy these pants.
The jeans are fantastic for me. I don't like the look of skinny jeans on me. I do not work out, but have always been thick-thighed and large bottomed. The are a great rise for my mommy belly and I love the loose fit.
I absolutely love these jeans! So glad they finally make a petite boot cut. They remind me of what I wore in high school 15 years ago. Minus the high rise, which is just awesome for my mom body lol. I'm a 5'4" 135 lb crossfitter, and I got a size 28.
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.
Great fit and so comfortable!
Love the shorts! The only thing is the side hips are a little weird because I don’t have large hips…but they’re still comfy and cute :)
I’m 5’2” 138# and wear a 27
5’10” and 165 pounds. I ordered the 29, but should have exchanged for the 28.
Still a very nice pair of shorts.
These are by far the best shorts I’ve owned. However, I ordered a size up (29) from my normal size based on a couple other reviews. The legs are still slightly tight on me and I have a good amount of room left in my waist. So, not perfect but still wayyy better than most. I ordered the light wash in a size down (28) and they are also great but the legs are definitely tight for my thicc thighs even though the waist is a good fit. I’m 5’7”, 163lbs.
I won't deny, I love your jeans and I was super excited to try these shorts out since most of the shorts I own are either super wide in the leg or super wide in the waist. These both my legs, butt, and waist and I felt super cute. Thanks for making a great product
Love the Melissa shorts I just purchased. I am older (62) and I really love the 5 inch inseam as the 2 and 3 inch are just too short for me. I would love this even more if it had a higher waist - it's not really low - more mid-rise - but I like a higher waist (so thankful when those came back into style). If you offered a high waist, 5 inch short, I would buy instantly!! (Hint, hint - people with athletic builds actually get older, too!) I am 5'6", weigh 140, am very athletically active and purchased a size 30.
Fabulous! Fit is fantastic, comfortable, roomy, makes me feel like the bad@$$ I am!!! I’m so grateful to have found a pair of shorts that fits my athletic figure.
These were for my gymnist-daughter who is 13 with well-defined muscles. It’s so great to NOT have a gap at her waist! They’re cute and just what we were hoping for.
Thank you so much for making shorts that fit my legs and waist!!! I absolutely love them!!
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.
These are the best fitting shorts I have ever tried! Finally, no more compromise between fitting in the hip OR the waist. They are so comfortable and clearly high quality. I will be investing in more!
Just purchased the Maria 5” shorts in dark wash and I’m very happy with them. The cuffed bottom makes them feel a little dressier than the cut off fringe bottom shorts. The fit is great, as with all Fran Denim shorts. I am 5’6” and weigh 140 and I purchased a 29.
My life has changed! I have never been able to wear shorts. They always ride up, where too tight in all the wrong places, and I had given up. But now --- Not only am I wearing these shorts everywhere but I've been stopped three times in the last week. Feeling confident and love showing off my legs for the first time in years! Thank you for creating this incredible brand - I am a buyer for life!
Height - 5'9; weight - 180, size 31.
I literally went to 20 stores to try and find something that did not gap in the waist. I am beyond thrilled with how these fit and how soft they are. These are amazing! I will be buying more from Fran Denim!!
I have pretty long legs and I love the length of these because they don’t roll up and are just the right length. I also love the fit. These shorts are perfect for anyone with a smaller waist but nice fit legs :)
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!!!
Definitely fit better than most jean shorts. I have large thighs though and a small waist and they still gapped a lot. Thighs 26" waist 29" hips 41"
Fran denim shorts have a fantastic fit for athletic builds. The first time i wore them before the wash, i was in love. The only problem with these shorts is the fold at the bottom, it does not stay and since there is a fold in the fabric it rolls. I typically don’t get shorts with a fold for this reason, but the cut I wanted was already sold out in my size.
Like the title says I’ve been wearing them practically every day. Very comfortable, great looking fit, wash with no change to size. Go smaller than you may think if you’re new to Fran denim!
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!
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 decided to try out Fran denim as I have always had big thighs and a big booty. Now that I’m in CrossFit I get the ads for athletes clothes and saw these. My measurements were not on the chart so I went with height and weight chart like they suggested (5’3” and 150 pounds, waist is 31 and hips 43) and the 29s fit perfectly. They are super comfortable for jeans too, I can lounge around in these. I can squat and kneel without my booty sticking out which is great for a mom of toddlers. They are pricey, but I’m willing to pay that much if they fit like they claim and are made in America. Very happy with these, will definitely be getting a second pair.
Have been trying to find JEANS not jeggings. Thrilled with these. 5'7", 145, belly button =30, bum =39.5, went with the 28. Can squat & sit comfortably in them. No fear of fanny crack sightings. Inseam is perfect for my height too. Deeelighted. Fit girl problems no more.
These jeans fit me in the hips and thighs AND have no waist gap, even sitting or squatting. The fit is snug but comfortable, and I can still do the splits without any pinching or having to readjust. Love the mid rise and long inseam, since I am proportionally short waisted with long legs. 5'4" 150 lbs size 29
(For reference, I am 6'5", 185 lbs, and I almost always wear a size 12 or 32 jeans. I ordered the size 30, tall inseam jean from Fran and it fit great. I ordered other tall styles in the size 29 and size 30 and the size 29's were too tight in all styles) I have been looking for some good skinny jeans for a long time! Usually they are too low cut, making it hard to keep my bottom covered when sitting/bending or too tight in the legs or too dingy washed. These are the perfect jeans for my overly tall body. They are not as long as my legs, but they hit in a flattering place, the waist sits in a comfortable spot while also holding in my belly, and the butt looks great! I tried 6 pairs from two different companies, and this was my only keeper!
I have spent my whole life trying to find jeans that fit my athletic legs, but not too big around waist. AND also be long enough for this 6 ft gal! These are them🙌🏼 One of my fav purchases this year.
My upper arms/shoulders and I have never been able to wear denim jackets comfortably - I have to buy them a size too big and then they’re just unflattering. This jacket is PERFECT in every single way, I am so excited - almost as excited as I was with my first pair of Fran jeans!
I have bought a dozen Jean jackets, all the brands and price points. I’m wide in the shoulder which means I swim in the body. Or they fit my body and I can’t move my shoulders. This jacket is so perfect, I did the happy dance the first time I put it on!!! It’s just stretchy enough, the sleeves are long enough, the color is perfect, and it fits my torso AND my wide shoulders!!! I’m so in love. It’s totally worth what I paid! I totally guessed on the size because ‘your shirt size’ is subjective. I wear a tight small unisex shirt- for crops, and a comfy medium. So I went medium on the jacket. Perfect!
This was my FAVORITE jacket and then I forgot it at a restaurant while on vacation... HAD to get another ordered the very next day and it was waiting for me when we got home... Happy girl right here!
It’s perfect. So glad I decided to get this. I’m gonna wear the heck outta this jacket for years to come.
I ordered a medium per the size instructions, and it fits perfectly! The dark wash makes it perfect for work. The length is great, there is just enough stretch, and I am warm and covered.
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.
These are my first FD flare jeans and I couldn’t be happier! The fit is as usual ON POINT and they have a perfect higher raise waist. I wish they came in more colors! I definitely recommend. I bought my normal FD size. They stretch out after wearing them one day so I could go down one size for a tighter fit. I am 5’4’’, 145 for reference and wear size 27. The length is perfect!
I have a pair of skinny jeans that are a bit long but ok since they're skinny. For reference I'm 5'4". These are even longer than the skinny jeans (yes, i checked and i definitely ordered and got petites). They come past my toes! And the flare on the boot cut is pretty dramatic to the point of being reminiscent of the flare jeans of the late 90's/early 00's. Even if I got them hemmed the diameter of the leg is so side it's like a tent around my boot.
I bought these trying to find a pair of jeans that fit my body type. Man, did they deliver. I even brought them to work for my co-workers to try on. They loved them too and will be purchasing some soon. Thank you for a jean that finally fits correctly!
I’m 5’4”, 165lbs, 31” small of waist, 35” at belly button, 38” at hip crease, 41” mid butt, 24” each thigh and the size 30 is perfect. The medium wash colour is really flattering, slightly faded in the seat and quads. Stretches nicely in the seat and thighs for easy movement, stays up in the waist with no gap in the back. The bootcut opening is perfect for exactly that - boots! Love these jeans. I also have them in the dark wash.
I have always had a big booty and had a hard time finding shorts that don’t get swallowed by my thighs and cover my butt. These fit my legs and butt great and don’t ride up too much! They definitely rode up the front a bit upon getting them but after wearing them several times they fit perfectly!
I'm so happy. I finally own shorts that don't ride up. These are roomy and flattering and I'm so happy to have them. Thanks, Fran! I'm 5'10", 160, wide hips, and comfortably wearing a 29...I almost swapped them for a 30 but as with my jeans, they stretch.
Very stretchy and comfortable!
I’m 5’5 135# waist 32” (bellybutton) hips 37”
I ordered a 28
Love these shorts. They are just stretchy enough, super soft and fit like a glove. I do wish Fran Denim had an option in shorts for “super high waist” like they do in pants - the rise on these are still a ways under my belly button. But still super cute!
For reference I am 5’9” 155 lbs, waist 30, hips 40 and ordered the 28.
These are my first pair of Fran shorts and I’m absolutely in love! I’ve always had to choose between being too baggy in the waist or in the butt and it was a novel experience to actually feel both fit at the same time. For me, they were true to size based on my measurements, but I kind of like to hike them up so that they are high waisted, and I feel like I could’ve gone a size down to make them a little tighter on my lower abdomen. Other than that they are perfect and I feel so confident in them. I will definitely be purchasing more shorts.
I ordered a 28 and I am 150 lbs, 29” waist, 39” hips.
