First time buying Fran Denim and love these jeans. I'm 5'2" about 155 w/ big quads and glutes from lots of weightlifting. Bought the size 30. So grateful that they have petite! These Kay jeans hit slightly lower on my waist than the Kay Mid-rise Skinny Black jeans, which I also bought. I like both styles a lot and slightly prefer the mid-rise, but truly love these, too. They did feel snug when I first put them on, but have the perfect amount of stretch. I bought the Ella Crop style, too. Those are even more perfect. I have the feeling that I could just live in the Ella Crop jeans all day every day.
I’m 5’1” and 135 pounds with an athletic/gymnast style build, I ordered a 27”. They’re snug in the right places and forgiving where they need to be! Love them!
