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!
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.
These pants look great, feel wonderful and I get compliments all the time. Make them in other prints and I will buy some more.
Absolutely love the fit and function of these jeans.
Love the fit but they took a month to arrive .
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.
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.
Love the fit. Love the color.
These jeans fit great and I wear them all the time. I'm 5'4", 140 and I bought the 28s. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and came back to try some shorts! Still patiently waiting for those to arrive ☺️
April Super High Rise Acid Wash
I love these jeans and the way they fit. Will definitely buy again
Super comfortable! The waist is high enough that these don’t slip down like other athletic jeans. They fit well without feeling too tight in the legs. I was worried the 31 would be too big but the size chart was accurate. I went by weight and height (I’m 5’5 170) and the fit is perfect for me. I will be buying more!
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
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.
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 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 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!!!
I feel extremely meh about these jeans, which is a bummer because I have a pair of black skinnies from Fran that I absolutely adore. I got these a size bigger than my skinny jean size for a looser fit, and really they fit like skinny jeans (tight throughout the thigh) with a little loose-ness from knee down -again, that's with me sizing up enough that the waistband is a little loose/saggy on me. I'm usually more of a relaxed-fit jean wearer and was so excited to see an option from Fran in this style, but I'm pretty disappointed. The material is a very jegging-like and actually feels pretty thin/cheap compared to the skinnies I have from this same brand. Also the wash is significantly lighter on the butt vs the legs, which I think is an attempt at countouring but looks pretty obvious and pretty odd. Overall, if they weren't on sale I'd return them. The one plus is that they are super comfortable and easy to move around in. But I think I'd stick to skinny jeans in this brand from here on.
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 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!
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 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 have always struggled with shorts that fit correctly...I have a booty and muscular thighs, but a small waist. I always have a big gap in the waist if the shorts fit my booty. These are the best! Perfect fit, perfect length (I don't want booty hanging out!) and no ride-up! I am 5'1", 130lbs and I wear size 28.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I love these shorts. The material is so soft, there is no waist gap or muffin top, and the shorts stay put on my thighs. I've never felt like I look good in denim shorts until now. If they came in different colors, I'd buy every one.
I have a pair of 27 jeans that I love, but not going to lie...the waist has gotten a little tighter this summer! I decided to order a 28 in these shorts and they are so cute! They fit perfectly and the color makes my tan luscious. I wore them to dinner last night and my boyfriend IMMEDIATELY told me how much he loved my shorts "are they new?" he asked, "I would have definitely noticed those if you wore them before!"
Highly recommend and I will be getting pair, for sure.
I have two pairs of the full length jeans in size 29, but they are a bit loose, so I decided to try the shorts in a size 28. Pulling them out of the package, I thought there is no way they are going to fit. I laid them on top of my long jeans, and there was at least an inch on each side of the waistband, meaning the waist is about 4 inches smaller! I was shocked there was such a huge size difference between a 28 and a 29. They did pull on (amazingly), and I could button and zip them. They fit like a glove and actually look really cute, even they are a little uncomfortable until they stretch out, and they are tighter in the crotch than I would normally wear. But, they do look so cute that I decided to keep them, because I figured that if I got a size 29 they would be way too big like my long jeans. I'm 5' 10.5" tall and weigh 159 lbs. My waist is 31" and my hips are 42.5".
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.
Love the high waist and room for my big legs! This is the only brand I can wear a “skinny” look and still have plenty of room for a sexy snug, but comfortable fit.
These are true to what they advertise. There’s no waist gap. They stay up. They make my lower body look AMAZING. I am sincerely amazed and thrilled with these and I look forward to buying more. I’ve been showing them off and giving reviews on Facebook and recommending them to everyone ❤️
I have been eyeing Fran Denim for a while and SO happy I finally ordered my first pair! I am 5'8.5",148 lbs, and typically a size 6/27. I ordered a 27 and at first thought maybe I should size up, primarily because the waist is a bit tight. However after 2nd try on (not even wear) I can tell that the reviews about allowing them to be a bit tight at first are right - definitely sticking with this size as they have plenty of stretch and are already comfortable. FD is everything that athletic ladies have been raving about.. it feels nice to know that most jeans are made wrong - not me/my body ;) THANK YOU!! ***PS PLEASE make Nicole high rise in BLACK with destruction/distressing!!***
Love these jeans! They are comfortable, they fit perfect!!!
These shorts are an absolute fave! I wear them all the time. They’re flattering, comfortable, have room for my butt and quads, but hug in all the right places!
5'9" 155lbs size29. fits perfect!
❤️ my purchase. They fit perfect and are stretchy and super comfortable. I’m 5’5” -150lbs ordered size 27.
Absolutely love these shorts! Worth every penny.
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.
