super comfy. 5'6" 180 lbs.
My wife looks amazing in these!
I went by the models dimensions in my order and also the fact that they said they stretch out so don't order big. I am 5'6, 158, waist is 29, Hips 39, bust 37. Wish I would have ordered a size up. I ordered a 28
I REALLY wanted to like these shorts, and I was really excited to try this brand. I understand I have a tough shape to fit - I have a 29in. waist and 44in. hips, with 25in. thighs. I ordered a size 30 so that my booty would have enough room without having a hug waist gap. Unfortunately, I have a lot of gapping in the back:( these shorts also ride up really bad, i’m assuming from not having enough room in the butt. These shorts are EXTREMELY comfy though and feel like amazing quality which is why I’m giving them a 4 and not a 3. They just don’t fit right on me and so I’m going to try another style and maybe size down to a 29. I think someone who has slightly less exaggerated dimensions that myself would absolutely love them:)
A few wears made these shorts perfectly comfy. I live in a warm climate and work from home... so I basically live in these. Have also lifted in them! There is a little bit of ride-up, as with any short short, but not as much as other brands. One note, I did find that this rise was more flattering on my rear than the high rise, which naturally has higher butt pockets.
These were worth every penny, and my next purchase is the jeans. I’m 5’3, 150 lbs., wearing the 28!
These fit so well! I ordered true to size 28 and they feel great - short where you want them, but not up the crotch. Stretchy but no gapping in back. I even dried them in the dryer and they were 👌
Thank you, Fran Denim!
Little short but my husband likes it hahah
I’m kinda between sizing right now since I had my daughter and just getting back to the gym but I’d rather pay the higher price for amazing shorts that will only fit temporarily while I loose more weight because I’ve still maintained the muscle legs with a littler waist.
Slowly throwing out my other pants and shorts in order to make room for Fran denims
I am a powerlifter and the hardest part of finding shorts is having them fit just right without a huge gap in thr waist. I measured my waste and the shorts fir perfectly on me. I am 5'2. 155lbs
I love these shorts and am so happy that I spent the money on shorts that fit my athletic thighs! I can now feel confident in my shorts!
I’ve been a Fran Denim lover for 6 years and they are the only jeans/shorts I wear. Durable, stretchy, snug in the right places. Highly recommended for thighs that save lives 😉
I absolutely love these shorts! Best jean shirts I’ve ever owned!! The rise is perfect - not too low or high, and there’s still enough coverage for the booty!
For reference, I’m 5’0.5”, 120 pounds athletic build, and purchased a 26.
Nice to find a pair of shorts that fit thicker thighs and doesn't ride low in the back. Hubby is a fan too.
Love these shorts! So nice to finally find a pair that fits my waist and thighs!!
Fits perfectly, like a glove and there is no gaping areas around the waist!
I love these shorts so much. I ordered a size 8, I’m 5’5” 140lbs and they fit perfect. They don’t ride up and they have just enough stretch. I will be buying more !
Wife loves all three shorts. She's able to work out in them and go on hikes.
I am so happy I found these shorts. I love that I don’t need a belt and they fit in the seat!
These shorts are fire and if you wear them, your husband will not stop touching your bum.
It's nice to actually find shorts that don't gap in the back, or squash my butt flat. I wish there was an option for a longer inseam, but overall I'm happy with them.
I sized up to a 30 (typically a 29) like what was recommended but they are a tad big. Better than too tight! Fantastic quality. I’ll be purchasing another pair for sure. I’m 5’7.5” and 165 lbs
I love everything I have gotten from Fran denim. These shorts fit great. I’m 5’7”. 147 lbs. I got a 29.
Height: 5’6. Weight: 130. Size ordered: 25. BEST SHORTS EVER ORDERED! Fit perfectly and stay “snug” the whole day!
I love high rise shorts but they were always too snug in the bit or thighs. These fit perfect! No riding up or tugging down. Will try jeans this fall!
The denim, while still super-stretchy, is more durable than my old shorts. Great color. I purchased a size 27 (waist is small). I'm 5' 3" 140 lbs.
I absolutely LOVE these fran denim shorts! I fold mine up because although I like the fringe, I do like clean lines, hah. Luckily, these are long enough to do so without looking like they’re too short! I’ve never owned a more comfortable pair of shorts and I’m so excited to grow my collection of fran denim!
I have always had trouble finding shorts that fit my legs and booty without a giant gap at the waist. I have been a CrossFit athlete for 3 years which has only added to the struggle. I am so glad I tried Fran Denim!! These shorts are so comfortable and fit perfectly!! The pictures don't do them justice! I'm 5' 1" 140lbs and I ordered size 28.
Get a little loose after wearing them should have sized down. The back pockets could be a little bigger but over all happy
Awesome fit! My legs don’t feel trapped these shorts are super comfortable.
LOVE THESE. I am a 29 waist with a 31 hip/thigh. The size 30 fit perfectly with no gap. They do not fit as tight as they look on the model.. thankfully.
THANK YOU Fran Denim for making these shorts -- they fit great! I'm slender, but I'm a runner with very muscular thighs which makes finding pants and shorts that fit a real pain. I wear a 25, and am 5'7" and 125 lbs. The high waist design fits me well; the mid-rise is too snug around the waist for me.
First purchase of Fran denim & did not disappoint. they really do fit my thighs so comfortably and i dont have to wear a belt and have no waist gap! I'm comfortable sitting down and look hella cute!
I love these shorts. They have the perfect amount of stretch and look great on me! I'm 5'10" 171lb, and I purchased a 29.
awesome shorts. they look great on my wife and she says they’re true to size
I am 5’6” 145lbs and bought a size 25. I could have probably even gone down to a 24, but they are sooooo comfortable!!!!
NEW! SOPHIE BUTTON FLY SHORTS DARK WASH
I am generally a thrift store shopper and not one to invest a lot of money in clothing, but in this case it was so worth it. I am 5'4, 130 lbs with a 27 in waist and 37 in hips. I purchased a size 25 in these shorts and am thrilled with how they fit! I will definitely be purchasing a pair of jeans in the near future. Also, appreciate the excellent customer service!
Best fit I've ever had, super comfy, and absolutely adorable! Easily my favorite denim shorts!
These shorts are awesome and give full ass coverage. Please make these in more styles and washes :)
They fit perfectly in the waist and hips and no waist gap! I just love these shorts and they are so flattering on my body.
These shorts are the perfect fit and length. My favorite shorts I own. I'm 5'4" 140 and bought a 28
These are definitely long enough and are super comfortable. These are true to size, I usually wear a 27 and they fit beautifully. For reference: I’m 5’8”, 140ish lbs and wear a size 6/8 in other shorts and pants.
I love these shorts. I’m 5’2” 165 lbs. I bought a 29 and they are snug but still comfy. I could definitely comfortably go up to a 30. They are worth every penny.
I finally have shorts that fit each my rear end & thighs, without the waist gap! After I ordered the first pair, I have since ordered 2 more shorts and a pair of jeans.
First, I had trouble finding a short that fit my waist and bum. Then I found fran denim.
Then, I had trouble finding a short that covered all of my bum after moving around. Then I found the janyce short!
My only complaint is that the light wash almost has a “dirty” look to the fabric so it’s hard to match with tops.
They are so comfortable... their like sweat pant shorts, but cuter. No gapping at the waist and not digging into my things- best shorts ever.
I’m 5’4” and 150lbs. These shorts are amazing. They have room for my legs, are delightfully soft, and move with me. I love that the 4” inseam covers parts I’m self-conscious about but shows off the parts I’m proud of. Definitely recommend and will buy another pair. ❤️
These are absolute perfection! I’m 5’2 with a lean but athletic build, about 128lbs and ordered a size 25. I wanted a bit of a longer length and with my height these were perfect. Form fitting but so comfortable and definitely have stretch. I’ll be ordering more pairs!
5’ 2” 150#. Size 28. Love these shorts. Shorter than expected. They do get a little “cheeky” and need to be adjusted.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I was skeptical at first because the inseam was a little shorter than I usually buy, but I tried them on and fell in love. These shorts fit my waist perfectly and don't ride up my thighs. I didn't know denim material could feel so soft or move so well.
Super cute and short, but still provide enough coverage. At 38 years old I am 5 ft 6 and 50 lbs. I purchased the 29 and they are just a tad baggy on the sides. I think a 28 would have fit better, but they are nice and roomy!
Shorts have always been a struggle with bigger thighs and a smaller waist, but these are perfect. They are stretchy and soft with more room in the thighs and no waist gap. I feel sexy in these and I rarely feel that way with shorts.
I love these shorts!! They are so comfortable and fit well in the waist, butt, and thighs. They don’t ride up at all, there’s no gapping, they fit comfortably at the waist, and they held their shape well even after 2 wears.
I am 5’6”, 155# and I have an all over muscular build with thick thighs and a substantial butt, BUT my waist is not significantly smaller than my hips because of my obliques and having 4 kids. I was uncertain of the correct size so I ordered a 28 and a 29 and they both fit really well, but I do prefer the 29 (while my jeans in a 29 are a little too loose all over).
Great fit, soft and comfy, totally worth it.
I absolutely love them. They fit in all the right places. I was extremely happy to find these shorts and that they move with my body. I have gained weight recently and my already thick muscle thighs don’t help much. I am 5’8, 170lbs and I ordered a size 31. Fit perfect
My shorts fit like a glove, like no shorts ever have before. I'm a Fran buyer for life now!
These are easily the most comfortable pair of denim shorts I've ever bought. Only downfall would be the size. I'm 5'7" and 170 pounds so I ordered a 31 per sizing on the website and I actually need to size down to a 30!
It’s really hard for me to find good shorts that fit just right and these are absolutely a perfect fit. I’m 5,5 and 130lbs I purchased size 25 . I love these shorts and totally recommend them!
Nice color. Pleasantly not too dark either as the lighter wash was out of stock so bought these instead. I bought the same size as always (26) but to me these seemed to run a bit larger than my other two jeans and two shorts. They just seemed different. I believe once washed and dried they’ll be great. And overall this brand is as promised —- perfect for the athletic build. I am 5’5 and small waisted with built thighs from lifting and butt and hips that are also developed. I weigh at around 135-139 on average. I have several style jeans and shorts and 26 is perfect on me. Hope this helps!
These shorts are an absolute fave! I wear them all the time. They’re flattering, comfortable, have room for my butt and quads, but hug in all the right places!
5'9" 155lbs size29. fits perfect!
❤️ my purchase. They fit perfect and are stretchy and super comfortable. I’m 5’5” -150lbs ordered size 27.
Absolutely love these shorts! Worth every penny.
Very stretchy and comfortable!
I’m 5’5 135# waist 32” (bellybutton) hips 37”
I ordered a 28
Love these shorts. They are just stretchy enough, super soft and fit like a glove. I do wish Fran Denim had an option in shorts for “super high waist” like they do in pants - the rise on these are still a ways under my belly button. But still super cute!
For reference I am 5’9” 155 lbs, waist 30, hips 40 and ordered the 28.
These are my first pair of Fran shorts and I’m absolutely in love! I’ve always had to choose between being too baggy in the waist or in the butt and it was a novel experience to actually feel both fit at the same time. For me, they were true to size based on my measurements, but I kind of like to hike them up so that they are high waisted, and I feel like I could’ve gone a size down to make them a little tighter on my lower abdomen. Other than that they are perfect and I feel so confident in them. I will definitely be purchasing more shorts.
I ordered a 28 and I am 150 lbs, 29” waist, 39” hips.
Love the shorts! The only thing is the side hips are a little weird because I don’t have large hips…but they’re still comfy and cute :)
I’m 5’2” 138# and wear a 27
5’10” and 165 pounds. I ordered the 29, but should have exchanged for the 28.
Still a very nice pair of shorts.
These are by far the best shorts I’ve owned. However, I ordered a size up (29) from my normal size based on a couple other reviews. The legs are still slightly tight on me and I have a good amount of room left in my waist. So, not perfect but still wayyy better than most. I ordered the light wash in a size down (28) and they are also great but the legs are definitely tight for my thicc thighs even though the waist is a good fit. I’m 5’7”, 163lbs.
I won't deny, I love your jeans and I was super excited to try these shorts out since most of the shorts I own are either super wide in the leg or super wide in the waist. These both my legs, butt, and waist and I felt super cute. Thanks for making a great product
Fabulous! Fit is fantastic, comfortable, roomy, makes me feel like the bad@$$ I am!!! I’m so grateful to have found a pair of shorts that fits my athletic figure.
These were for my gymnist-daughter who is 13 with well-defined muscles. It’s so great to NOT have a gap at her waist! They’re cute and just what we were hoping for.
Thank you so much for making shorts that fit my legs and waist!!! I absolutely love them!!
These are my new favorite shorts. I’m 6’ tall, 170 lbs and I ordered a 29. I usually wear an 8-10.
I love that they don’t ride up and are snug enough around my waist but not too tight in my booty or thighs!!
These shorts are amazing. I love the high waist, stretchy thigh and shorter hemline. These have allowed me to feel mom appropriate without wearing long shorts. As a crossfitter I've struggled to find shorts this year. Fran denim had become my go to.
These shorts fit great and are super comfy according to my daughter who wears them ALL the time. She swims and Fran Denim are the best shorts for her athletic body. Tiny waist, swimmer muscles.
I love these shirts. I’ve been skeptical to try Fran Denim, but damn. These are indeed made for an athletic physique.
Very happy with my new shorts. It was a bit of a gamble ordering from the Netherlands. I used the size charts on the website and it fits perfectly. Fabric is really nice and soft. Finally found jeans shorts that fits perfectly 😃
I love these!! I’ve always wanted a pair of cutoffs that fit loose in the legs but they are always tight because of my quads and booty. These fit just like I wanted in the legs and waist at the same time! I am 5’7,160lbs (4 months postpartum, about 10lbs over pre-baby weight but got the same size as my other Fran shorts). Size 28. Will purchase these same pair again if they make more colors!
I was nervous to buy these without any reviews, but I'm so glad I took a chance on them. As with all my Fran Denim jeans and shorts, these fit perfectly and have no waist gap! For reference, I'm 5'6 and about 140 lbs. I usually wear a small or size 4 bottom, and the size 26 Frans fit perfectly.
I have always struggled with shorts that fit correctly...I have a booty and muscular thighs, but a small waist. I always have a big gap in the waist if the shorts fit my booty. These are the best! Perfect fit, perfect length (I don't want booty hanging out!) and no ride-up! I am 5'1", 130lbs and I wear size 28.
I'm 5'3", 140 pounds, size 27. I love these shorts. The material is so soft, there is no waist gap or muffin top, and the shorts stay put on my thighs. I've never felt like I look good in denim shorts until now. If they came in different colors, I'd buy every one.
