It feels like these are almost a full size smaller in the waist than the hips/butt/thighs and the long length is actually long
They haven’t fallen down once after wearing them 2 days in a row
I am 5'11, 155 lbs. I ordered a size 28. The waist fit was perfect, but the length was way too long and it was too big in the calf. I was expecting it to hug my legs better. So even though I was disappointed with these and had to return them, I have purchased other pairs that I love.
I am 6' with large thighs, but more average size butt. These fit great, I still wear a belt but so appreciate that I'm not yanking them up all day, and that they are actually long enough. Am 196#, normally wear a 14L and bought the 32's.
Fran has officially made both the best and worst jeans that I've ever worn, these being the worst. I don't typically write bad reviews, especially of small companies that I love, but this needed done. Fran is now only making Emma with a "long" inseam, though a "regular" inseam for most any other company is 32". I loved my Helen's! I mean loved them, but they can no longer be ordered so I bought these, think ing they'd be a suitable replacement. I was wrong. The ridiculously high waist makes these jeans awkward in the entire torso and crotch areas. I should've returned them immediately but I thought I'd keep them and try to like them because I was low on jeans. I've tried to wear them like a dozen times but can't even make it out of the house before changing into something actually comfortable. I'm not one for having my pants higher than my belly button but also would like my ankles covered in the winter. So I've gone back to buying "regular" jeans from other companies and having them altered to fit... sad to see Fran Denim sacrifice comfort/function for being "trendy".
I'm 5'9" and 165# and got a 28.I have a really hard time finding pants that fit. But these are great! One thing I could say is the calf is tight compared to the rest but not uncomfortable, I just have work to get them over and then off my big calf muscles 🤔 length is perfect!
