With online ordering, sometimes you're taking a stab in the dark on sizes. Since, I've never tried this brand, I basically guessed at my size. After recently gaining weight, I thought I knew the size I should order, but unfortunately ordered a size (or two?) too small. I returned my pair and paid $10 (because the company won't reimburse this shipping fee on returns or exchanges). I don't think I'll purchase again for this reason. I'm getting an exchange for a larger size and hopefully they'll work out. However, if they don't and I continue having to pay $10 to ship them back and forth to try again, I'll feel cheated. I think companies that sell online in this way should eat the cost of shipping to make sure their customers aren't stuck with it while trying to find the right product (obviously because we can't try in the store it feels we're wasting money). If it turns out that I find the right size and love the jeans, maybe I'll purchase again, but still I find that aspect very frustrating. I do think they seem to be high-quality, and since they're advertised to fit a body type more like my own, I'm hoping for the best. Still, I think they should really reconsider this policy and if not, I'll probably look for other companies that produce a similar product while offering free shipping on returns.

This was my first purchase from FranDenim and will not be my last. I am 5’8” tall, 198 lbs, and purchased a size 31. They fit perfectly, I have thick lifter thighs and these jeans fit is far superior to any I have ever owned. No back gap just as advertised.
They are just as great as my first purchase!! Can not wait to make my 3rd!!
I never knew what a blessing it would be to have jeans that FIT me. I am not overly muscular but I do have a more athletic shape and my legs are thicker than my waist. I had pretty much given up on having jeans that fit me well and have gotten used to the waist being loose and the legs being TIGHT. I have also gotten used to all my belt looks being ripped from yanking my jeans up and jumping up and down just trying to get them on. I was sent a link to these jeans on Instagram and thought - eh why not try them?? These jeans are the first pair I am truly happy with in years. They are long enough (I’m five foot ten) and are equally comfortable on all parts of my lower body. Not too tight in the calves. Not bursting at the seams on my thighs. Not gapeing at the waist. And not a pair I have to stretch out for three days after washing before they are comfortable enough to wear in public. I couldn’t have made a more perfect pair if I had a personal body scan. I was hoping for jeans that fit me well - my expectations were exceeded. The denim is SO soft. I have bought jeans for $30-$350 trying to find ones I truly loved. None have compared to these with fit and quality. Initially I had purchased another style from this site in a 24. They fit my body but were right in the waist. Even from that I knew these jeans were a blessing from god. I returned them and got a 25 and in the meantime I also got these in a 26. The fit is great. I’m usually a 27 or 28 in jeans I def recommend sizing down and exchanging if you need to. The return policy is great! The best part is the elasticity in the jeans - it allows them to fit all different body shapes without sacrificing comfort or style. The 24s fit my lower body nicely - just too tight in the waist. Going to the 26 I have the same GREAT fit in the legs but now also in the waist. This is how all jeans should be made. Thank you!!
