I know these jeans are meant for a more athletic build, but I can tell you they work great for moms who have a little more junk in their trunk after having kids 😆 but really, I’ve always struggled to find jeans that fit my waist and don’t feel like they’re sucking the life out of my thighs. FranDenim jeans are perfect and comfortable and SOOO stretchy!! Perfect for my active life with little kids. I fully intend to buy at least 2 more pairs in the near future!!
Finally I found jeans that fit!! I’ve been on a never ending search for jeans that would fit over my thighs and booty without leaving that awful waist gap and ones that weren’t high waisted. These were perfect!! I ordered a size 29, but think I could’ve gone down to a size 28. For reference I am 5’4, 150lbs, 30 inch waist and 42 inches at the widest part of my hips.
I have purchased other overpriced Cali “Athletic” jeans and was left hating my body because the sizes run so small- so I was skeptical in buying these. I am 5’4” and about 200lbs, I practice Krav and functional workouts 3-5xwk, and wear size 10/12 in Gap jeans but hate that they don’t fit my legs. These are amazing!!! I can confidently say I will only purchase Fran from now on!!!!!
These jeans are super cute, well made, and fit my curves nicely. But, be warned...they're really long. I know I'm relatively short (5'4" with short legs, lol), but even so these are still longer than I would have expected them to be. I like my boot cut and flares to be longer than my skinny jeans, but I do wish there were some different length options. But, I love these so much that I'll make it work! I highly recommend them!
I'm 5'5" and the bootcut jeans seem to be longer than the flare and skinny versions. I could wear them now with very high heels or else I'd have to hem them for sneakers. I wish Fran Denim were available in different lengths, to avoid the need for tailoring.
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.
Finally, jeans for ladies who lift!
I bought these trying to find a pair of jeans that fit my body type. Man, did they deliver. I even brought them to work for my co-workers to try on. They loved them too and will be purchasing some soon. Thank you for a jean that finally fits correctly!
I’m 5’4”, 165lbs, 31” small of waist, 35” at belly button, 38” at hip crease, 41” mid butt, 24” each thigh and the size 30 is perfect. The medium wash colour is really flattering, slightly faded in the seat and quads. Stretches nicely in the seat and thighs for easy movement, stays up in the waist with no gap in the back. The bootcut opening is perfect for exactly that - boots! Love these jeans. I also have them in the dark wash.
Great fit and get a lot of compliments!
Fit great for my small waist and curvier hips!
I finally broke down and spent the money for a pair of these jeans. They are totally worth every cent. They fit perfectly and I never have to pull them up! Seriously, I'm not just saying that! I wore them on Thanksgiving day and between cooking, eating, axe throwing and pulling a wagon with the grandkids, I never had to adjust these jeans. I was unsure about ordering them but after reading some reviews on how easy it was to return/exchange them, I went ahead and bit the bullet. I ordered a size 30, I'm 5'4" and weigh 160 lbs. Thanks, Fran Denim!
I bought these hoping for a looser fit, but they are as tight, if not tighter than the Nicoles that I bought in the same size: so they’re really somewhere in between a skinny jean and a boot cut at the ankles. Good things: great colour, perfect length in the legs and in the rise (waist)
Too long, and really fit like a skinny jean. I’m over skinny jeans, I want a jean that makes my butt look good and is flattering for muscular legs but leaves a little to the imagination. The waist isn’t too high, that’s another fad I cannot wait to end. Give me that mid rise jean. Size 27, 5’4, 137lbs.
I have eyed Fran Denim for years now, but was never confident in sizing to actually purchase. I am 5'7" 76kg weightlifter usually weighing between 72-75kg and went with size 29. Perfect for thick legs, butt, and waist. Before I was wearing jeans from Lucky, which I also do like, and those were size 30 with the long size, but tight tight tight with not much give. After reading reviews I chose 29 from Fran Denim and they fit really well! The only change I would make for future orders is ordering a mid rise waist because the high rise is a high rise. Do it!!
I’ve been struggling to find a dark wash almost straight leg but almost skinny jean jeans for months. I have a booty, 30.5 waist, 41 hips, 6’0 feet tall and these (size 30) feel like they were made for me. I’ve worn them five or six times now, I roll the hems to wear w combat boots bc that's my pref, and the waist is a tiny snug but they have started molding to me. No bagging, sagging, or overstretching. They are light enough for all-season wear but tough enough for every day. I’m thrilled, this won’t be my last pair! Please please please do more colors of this style and a little bit more tapered leg opening!
I'm 5'6" 136 and I love the way these jeans fit!! So does my husband!! I'm wearing size 28.
I am 5'7" and 135lb. I wasn't sure whether to size up or down, but I have pretty narrow hips so I went with a 26. My legs have NEVER properly fit into jeans. I've been an athlete my whole life and had just resigned myself to pants never fitting properly. These pants honestly fit me like a glove. They loosen a bit, so the recommendation to have them fit snug at first is spot on, but they don't completely loosen. In the past I feel like jeans have fit for a day and then just gone all saggy if I sat for a while or walked - basically if I did anything. These stay tight and flattering no matter whether I bike, walk, squat, whatever. The stretch is great too. I am so psyched I finally went for it with these!
Love Fran Denim jeans! I’m small waisted with bigger thighs n glutes and finally a pair of jeans that fit. 5’4” and 109… size 24. Great since I’m lifting and getting stronger and now great fitting jeans!💗👍
I love these jeans. I have long legs and a short waist, and these fit me wonderfully! I’m 5’7” and 135 pounds and I bought size 29. They are a bit long, but I would rather too long than too short, and I can hem them.
I am 5'8," 140lb, athletic build, and I bought a size 28. These fit me really great although they are quite a bit longer than I really need. Doesn't bother me though! Seems like good quality and the fit in my butt/thighs/waist is really good.
Highly recommend! I will be ordering another one very very soon!
Even though these are advertised for body builders, they are my PERFECT mama jeans too!
I am 5’7, 158lbs and bought a size 27.
I am 5’11” and 185 lbs and could NEVER find jeans that fit me well, with larger thighs and a booty. These jeans are PERFECT. When I measured, I aired on the side of caution a little and ordered a size 30 and while they fit like a glove as soon as I put them on, they loosened up a little as I wore them the first time and I found myself pulling them up constantly as I was moving around a lot. I will definitely be ordering in more colors (I got the dark wash this time) and will try a size 29 next time to see how they feel!
I’m 6’ with long legs and the Helen’s Long Skinny jeans fit like a glove! If they had more options in long I’d buy more!
Everything I was looking for! Great fit! I am 5'11'', 147 lbs. I got them in a 28 Tall and they are the perfect length and fit.
The HelenLong Skinny Medium Stone are my fifth pair of Fran Denim’s and I love each pair! I’m 5’2” and 112lbs. I ordered the 24 and they fit perfectly!
Love these jeans
I am 5’9 130# size 25
At first I thought I ordered too small as they were very tight in the waist
After a few wears the size was perfect
The jeans are long I have to cuff them slightly
I have a bubble butt and muscular thighs not as big as girls in photos but these pants fit great
Love the feel of these jeans and I feel confident they will stay up. Definitely recommending them to all my athletic friends cause it's nice not feeling my calves and thighs constricted while still keeping my jeans from sliding down without a belt. My only issue is I wish there were more long inseam options.
The most comfortable, best looking jeans I have ever worn. I could sleep in them! Just purchased pair number 6.
Emma Long Inseam High Rise Skinny Dark Wash
I’m 5’10”, weigh 160 lbs. Proportionally I have much larger quads and glutes compared to my waist, but there is still a significant gap in the jeans at my waist. I want to love them. Great color and length and just the right amount of stretch. Also love the durability and quality of material. Luckily my thighs and glutes keep them from falling, but the space between my waist and waist band of the jean is a few inches.
I’m 5’10, 170 #. I struggle with finding jeans that fit properly. I have bigger thighs and a smaller waist as well as bigger calves. I don’t like when they are too snug in certain places, when I have to yank them up in order to sit or having to adjust all the time. I finally caved and splurged on these jeans and they are so comfortable. I can literally walk around doing squats in them if I wanted to. The long inseam are *almost* too long but I like having the option to cuff them at the bottom! My only complaint is they do stretch a little bit so they become looser around my knees and right below my belt loops on my backside but I think the smaller size may have been too tight. I did follow the size guide and ordered a 29. Overall, I am loving my purchase and I’m going to be buying more!
I wear a 10/12 , 5ft 10. 34 Inseam. These jeans were the PERFECT Length for me. Also the Waist height is perfectly over my belly button, and I have a long torso. I saw the model wearing this style and she looked like my same build and height so I got size 31, but I could have worn a 30 Also as they have a lot of stretch. I will for sure buy another pair!
I was skeptical about these jeans until I wore them for the first time. Ahhhh! No more hiking up my jeans all day. They stay in place and no gaps. Based on other reviews I did go down a size and they were a perfect fit. Ordering another pair now. I would like to see more options in the long inseam though.
I was very pleased when I received my jeans. I ordered the Emma Long High Rise Skinny.
I typically wear a 30 in regular jeans, I ordered a 29... now as I wear them, I could have gone to a 28. They do stretch quite a bit while you wear them.
I will certainly order again!
I recommend going 2 sizes down.
I am 5'7" (ish) and 160lbs with a "strong build" as they say... I bought size 29 (I maybe could've sized down, but idk, these fit pretty darn well). I am ALWAYS having trouble finding jeans that fit my thighs but also are snug on my waist. These jeans do just that- they are stretchy enough to hug my thighs and the high waist leaves no gap at my waist. The zipper is also high quality and little details like that matter. Would definitely recommend to other lifters and women with similar body type- thankful for my Fran Denim jeans!
These by far are my favorite jeans. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for the last 12 years - and they can’t hold on much longer. I have been looking for the perfect pair of jeans to fit my thick legs and bottom. I’ve tried other jeans with similar material and they would always slide down. These jeans stay put! I’m 5’9” and 186lbs and the 30” fit me like a glove. Bought another pair already!
Love the fit of these jeans. The fabric feels like a good quality, not flimsy, and they hold their form well after a few days of wearing. I just wish there were more colors! 5’9” 170, size 29 fit great.
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!!!
