I love these jeans. The dark wash can be dressed casual or dolled up. As a mom of 3, I'm all about the functional fit.
I have been considering ordering from Fran Denim for a long time after seeing your ads on Instagram. I was a little off on my first two choices with either size or style, but I finally got it right with the Sarah Mid Rise Skinny Dark Wash! I am 5'4" and 145 pounds. I ordered a size 30. This may be the first pair of jeans I have never had to have altered in the waist. So happy!
Post from the wife who received these jeans: My husband surprised me with them for Christmas. I wasn't sure what he was doing when he asked for my measurements, but when I tried them on Christmas morning I loved them!
Form fitting, but not too tight and constricting. The length was perfect for me (5'4"). I love that I can move while wearing them (no gaps) and they make my butt look great!
5’9”, 130# size 25, these jeans fit great
Love these jeans!! Fit like a glove!Will have to order another pair because I want to wear these everyday :)
I have always had thick legs and a booty and as my fitness journey has progressed they have gotten bigger so I have had soo much trouble trying to find jeans that fit and are comfortable. I’m am so happy to have found these!
I was on the search for the best fitting skinny jean and a friend recommended I try Fran... I have to say they are the best I've tried and I've tried a lot of brands. They stay where they are supposed to stay! I would def size down one size from where you measure on the size chart. Based off the measurements I was a "27", But I bought a 26 and they are perfect. Sucks your waist right in like built in spanx. I have more of a runners build so my legs aren't built as some and they still work great for me. I'm 5'6" and weigh 144. I use them for date nights to riding my horses. Can't wait to buy more.
I love fran denim jeans! This is my 4th pair and the only jeans I wear. I'm in size 31 at 5'5", 165 pounds.
I absolutely love these jeans! I will never find another brand that fits my body the way these jeans fit! I also really like how I don't feel constricted when I move and don't have to constantly pull them up!
I'm 5'4", 132 pounds with a 30.5 inch waist.
Just did a Fran workout today. Woo hoo
I am 5’6 ish, and fluctuate between 138 and 148, but usually close to 142. Waist 27, hips 40, quads 20ish. Even before lifting I struggled with finding pants that fit my hip to waist ratio, because of that I ordered a 26. I’m a little fluffier right now because of thanksgiving and an injury, so these are pretty tight, but fit well, and NO waist gap (I think that’s a first for me). After a day of wearing they have stretched a bit, but not to the point of being baggy. Anticipating being away from the gym for awhile I ordered a 27, but I’m hanging on to the 26s for when I’m able to get back after it.
I was skeptical of paying this much for jeans but seriously seriously so worth it.
Significantly smaller than two other Fran jeans in same size. Great quality and color. Wish sizes were more consistent
New customer, sick of ‘normal’ jeans - will DEF be buying more! So comfy, look fantastic!!
I purchased the Nicole High Rise Skinny jeans in a size 28 as I normally wear a size 6. They were just a tad too loose so I returned them and got a 27. They fit like a glove! I am 5'6" and 133 lbs. You won't be disappointed!
I love these mid rise jeans. I don't have the body shape to wear high rise jeans & a cropped tops (mom of 3; no one needs to see that!) these are the perfect fit and function. 5'7" , size 28.
I’m 5’5” hourglass and love these jeans! No gap in the back. Denim is super comfortable. Stretch makes everything fit nicely but not too much that is gets saggy.
Love the red accent stitching on the black jeans.
It's hard to find jeans that actually fit. They are soft and fit "right"
I'm 5'6 185lbs size 32
For reference I am 5’2” 115 lbs and bought size 24. I have the Nicole high rise in this size and it fits perfectly. Unfortunately the Sarah mid skinny black tends to stretch out in the waist and is slightly tighter on my thighs, resulting in them riding down all day. Maybe I just need to stick to high rise, but it seems the fit is just a little different from other styles. Still ok but not as great as my other pair!
These fit perfectly and look amazing! Love how versatile they are; I can dress them up for work and dress them down for home.
Finally a pair of jeans for us shortys who lift!! Literally the perfect pair of jeans! I immediately ordered another pair.
I can’t believe how soft and “worn in” these jeans already feel! I was nervous, based on some reviews that said they were stiff and uncomfortable but that is definitely not my experience. I had a hard time with sizing but ended up with a 27, at 5’ tall, 123 lbs. I might have been able to pull off a 26 but the risk wasn’t worth exchanging. They are the perfect length for my short legs!
This is my third pair of Fran denim jeans. I absolutely love the fit and they are super comfortabLe. I have gotten rid of all my other brands of jeans since discovering Fran denim.
Finally a quad blessed girl and wear comfy jeans!
I’ve got another pair coming Since I loved these so much !
For reference I’m 5ft4 155lbs 30 waist 40 hips
I got a size 39 .
I’m 5’ and my weight fluctuates between 113-118 and when you’re only 5’ 5lbs can change your size so I own these in 2 different sizes and I’m about to order them in a third size since I’m pretty thin right now. At 113lbs I wear a 24” and at 118 I wear a 25”. I also have these in 26” because sometimes the junk food gets the best of you, lol. Can’t wait for more petite options.
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. Place your order!!
I'm 5'3", 123-125lbs. I originally purchased a size 27 but ended up exchanging for a size 25. I'm in love with these jeans because I've FINALLY found a pair that fit both my thighs and my waist! Previously I paid at least double what I've paid for these when I purchased a custom-made pair of jeans that I was also in love with. I thought I would always have to purchase custom-made jeans due to the natural difference between my waist and thighs/hips in particular. So grateful my friend told me about this company! No more scrunched waist line. This will not be the last pair of jeans I order :D
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
I am normally a size 28 in jeans (I'm 5'7", 155lb, 29" high waist, 31" waist at belly button, 40" booty) and this also fits the Fran sizing. Because of the recommendation on the website to size up for the black Julie jeans, I ordered a 29. After wearing them once, they are baggy on the waist! I wish I had ordered the correct size 28. I also ordered another pair of jeans from Fran in size 28 and they fit perfectly. So if you size yourself to fit properly, I do not recommend going one size up for these black jeans.
Julie High Rise Skinny Black
Love the way these fit. They are my new favorite jeans! I’m 5’4, weigh about 135 and ordered a size 26.
I guess I am doomed to never be able to find pants that fit my small waist and huge booty and thighs well. I was really excited for these because everyone raved about catering to the athletic body. I am definitely bottom heavy but I have a really small waist and even these didn't work for me. I still gave 4 stars though because it isn't the companies fault my body is lame :( I am 5'-6" and 178 pounds.
I’m loving these-the exposed button fly is so cute! Perfect rise, and inseam length. I’m 5’4” 170ish with 31” waist and 44” hip. I ordered a size 29 and they fit like a glove. Great stretch/give in the fabric and they don’t get baggy with wear.
Was looking for a slightly different Jean style than what I already had. These are very cute and fit perfectly
5'2", 140 lb, athletic build (from Olympic weightlifting), size 26
The first time I put them on, it was love. Plain and simple, these jeans are amazing. This is my first pair of FD jeans.
A few notes:
- I was on the fence for months, as it sounds like many people were. How could they really be as good as they sounded? Well, to me, they are.
- I am a 27 in other brands, and even after comparing against the measurement chart and seeming to be a 27 in FD, I followed the advice of some reviewers and went a size down for a snug fit. BEST decision ever. They fit beautifully to my preference, like a second skin.
- Some reviewers mentioned the "flat-bottom" look the jeans gave them. I have an average-sized butt and thought the same when I first put them on. However, after a few times wearing them and a time or two through the wash, they loosened up a bit and that "flat-bottom" look doesn't seem to be a problem anymore.
The long and sort of it is: I recommend buying these jeans, possibly a size down, and not being too afraid of a slightly flat bottom when you first pull them on. Just do a squat, feel how they move with you, and marvel at the miracle. Thanks, FD.
I’m 5’2”, 120 lbs. purchased size 27. Perfect fit since I like to cuff. I may try a petite size next. So comfy. My favorite jeans!
First time ordering from this brand and now I finally know how it feels to have jeans that fit me! I followed the size chart and found I was in between sizes. I ended up sizing down to fit my waist and they fit perfectly! My only comment is that the ankle openings are pretty small and not stretchy, so getting my big feet out of them proves challenging every time. I am typically a 4/6 in jeans and ordered a 26.
These pants are well structured with stretch. I'm 5'3, 185lbs, 32" waist, 51" hips and each thigh is 30". I ordered the 32". They fit my butt and thighs exceptionally well. They were gapping in the waist like every pair of pants do, but you could see my butt crack so that was an immediate no for me lol. I also felt like they were more of a straight leg in the calf/ankle area... and not a skinny at all. I wanted to love them. My thighs were accommodated in a pair of jeans for the first time in YEARS. I'll try another fit next.
I'm 5'6" and 130-135 lbs. Despite the fact that apparently it's the pop culture aim to have an "itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face" -- jeans are NOT made for thin girls with big butts. I bought these on a whim — my other jeans are getting old, and autumn is here, and I just thought, "why not try this brand I've never heard of?" They arrived quickly, and once I slipped the 27s on, and it was pure joy. I couldn't believe it. They're COMFORTABLE. I never felt this way about jeans before. Anytime I'd get something that was comfortable in my hips, they'd slide down my waist. Anytime I'd get something that fit my waist, my thighs felt like they were on fire. These exist!
The best part? I now get to give away my mediocre-fitting jeans -- which gives me a heck a lot room in my pants drawer!
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!
Fit through the waist hips and thighs was perfect, as was the rise and length, but this pair was not fitted enough for me through the knees and calves. I think a petite super skinny would be perfect. Size 29, 5’4”, 165 lbs, I carry most of my weight in my thighs.
5’4” 155lbs size 28
They stretch quite a bit when you wear them. I for sure could have sized down at least 1 size, they feel a little big once I wear them.
I am IN LOVE with these jeans! I've never found anything that fits me so well. I am so excited not to have that terrible waist gap I had just decided was inevitable. I'd love to see more options in the cropped/petite realm. I'm 5'3" 133 pounds and the 27 fit me perfectly, although still just a touch longer than I usually wear.
Totally in love!
I’m 5’2.5, 130 lbs. I ordered a 27, they are pretty tight but they have already started to stretch out. Super comfortable! Fit is perfect for my thigh booty and thighs, and thin waist.
Jean shopping has always been a fraught and esteem-destroying exercise, and then I found Fran. I literally teared up from happiness when I saw the models that had muscles and curves like mine. This is my third pair. Thank you for making these. I'm 5'3", 150lbs.
They fit...no gap.... love them and they look great.
High quality and a great fit. Will buy again
It has taken me so long to find a pair of jeans that fit my glutes and thighs and don't fall off my waist. I love the fit and quality!
Loved them ! True to size.
Cute and comfy. I don't really have the athletic build the gals in the photos have but I'm curvy so I thought I'd give these a try. Can't beat the price! And finally jeans I don't have to fold up at the ankles! Just the right length - though for someone any taller than I am (5'4", 127) they'd be way too short. I ordered the 27.
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 purchased the Kay Petite Skinny Medium Wash in size 30. I'm 5'2" and 145lbs. Love, love, love them, ordered 2 more. Perfect fit!
I’ve always had trouble finding jeans that fit my booty n thighs with no waist gap since I’ve got a small waist and these are a game changer! I’m 5’4, 108 and wear a size 25
So, I purchased these for my wife. She's 5'3" and about 140lbs, and has always had issues finding jeans that fit. Well, we saw these and she, my wife, was very aprehensive about spending about $100 per pair. Per my wife, BEST $$$ I've ever spent on her! The jeans were fantastic, fit perfectly, and you have definatley lived up to your reputation. This is the only place we will shop from this point forward!
This is my second pair in this style/cut. Now that I have the sizing figured out since the sizing and material changed, I’m good to go! Fits quads and glutes perfectly and I can still move!
I’m 5ft tall, 129lbs and I wear a 26
So far these have been my favorite fitting jeans. I have the medium and dark wash in Kay. The dark wash have more stretch then the medium ones. I struggle getting the medium wash jeans over my feet. So I’d go up a size if you want these ones.
I now have 3 pair of fran denim. And I love them. They fit perfect for the athletically built lady.
Just got mine today and am in love. Will definitely be buying more. No waist gap or saggy butt! Wore them for four hours and they held their shape. The struggle to find pants that fit my thighs and waist is OVER. It only took 45 years! I’m 5’4” 133lbs. Measured my waist this week and it was 28” at the narrowest part.
The 27s fit perfectly. I’ve always had curves but recently have been strength training and building muscle.
Love the way these jeans fit.
Well made jeans that fit my hips and waist perfectly!!
I’m 5’2” and 125 lbs and wear a 24. The fit is great. Waist fits, thighs still a little tight but if I go up in size then there is extra fabric in front.
The only reason is not full stars 1: I had to cut the ankles of because I couldn’t fit my foot through the stitched opening (I wear a size 6 shoe, my feet are not big) 2: the medium wash is the same exact color as my Eva crop distressed dark wash jeans. I was hoping for lighter. Photo is to show color of jeans.
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 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 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!
Love! Finally a Real low rise! PLEASE make these in more colors and restock the lighter rinse!! I would buy in every color/rinse.
The denim looks great on and the pants are flexible, easy to move in and have no waist gap. I am 5'4" and weigh 120 lbs with an athletic build and purchased a 26. I find the inseam rides up making them not as comfortable as they could be.
First time in 5 years I've purchased jeans that fit!! And of course I couldn't try these on ahead of time, but all the great reviews sold me on taking a chance! Really glad I did. Hope you come out with more colors in low rise; and shorts!!
New favorite jeans
Jeans and I have been enemies for as long as I remember. I am 4’11 and 3/4” and 125 pounds. I play volleyball, run and lift regularly. My lower half is all muscle but because I’m petite in size most jeans the waist size I need don’t fit my thighs. I enjoy leggings but I’m more of a hoodie and jean girl when not at work. At work I usually opt for dresses because they fit better but the cold windy winters are not dress friendly. I splurged on these jeans and went a size up because I don’t have time to send something back. The 27 fit fine for a little while but ultimately became too saggy. So I reordered these in a 26 and wear them at least twice a week. I’m sooo in love with these jeans.
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.
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 😉
