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.
The jeans are a perfect fit for my daughter’s athletic build. Thank you, Fran Denim!!!
I’m 5’9” with a 29” waist and 42” hips and ordered a size 28. I was surprised by how well these fit. I had about a 2 second worry they wouldn’t go up but they slid on and zipped easy peasy. I may be able to get away with a 27 but I kind of like the extra room. I love how they look and while I never thought I could use “jeans” and “comfortable” in the same sentence, MY GOD THESE JEANS ARE ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I can bend, lounge, move and am not constantly having to pull them up to make sure my butt hasn’t fallen out. Total win. Will be buying more pairs in different washes.
These are wonderful! I’m a 29 in the Mika, ordered a 28 in three! Absolutely perfect! I’m just under 5’5”
