I will only be purchasing shorts from Fran denim now. These shorts fit better than any other I have ever tried. They cover my entire butt but are not dorky long. They are incredibly soft and stretchy but don't sag by the end of the day. For this particular cut I recommend following the advice and sizing up one size.
First pair of shorts I’ve had since high school that had decent coverage and I don’t have to cinch a belt on to tighten the waist.
Bought the 26" shorts for 18 yr old who is 5'8" approx. 140 lbs & athletic build but not overly muscular. Color and style of shorts are fine but they were still too snug around the thighs. Fast shipment & quick return policy. Great customer service.
I’ve never been able to find shorts that fit perfectly in the waist and legs/butt that don’t ride up. These are so awesome. I’m 5’8, and 140# with an athletic build and fit great in a 27.
