Product Details
Our curvy fit is finally here (!) and, yes, it comes in our whole range of sizes. We took our classic skinnies with hold-you-in Magic Pockets in front and reengineered them for those with an hourglass shape. What does this mean? A narrower waist with a contoured band, a longer rise (for a rounder booty) and a little extra room at the hips and thighs. Simply put, you're gonna look amazing in these jeans. And, bonus, this pair has hand-ripped knees and cool raw hems.
  • Please note: Choose your regular size—these jeans were designed for curves, so no need to size up or down.
  • Front rise: 11"; inseam: 28 1/2"; leg opening for size 25: 10".

Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea

Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never going back I have a bit of a belly and booty which makes it super hard to find flattering AND comfortable jeans until now! I’m not one to drop this much on a pair of jeans but I’ve never felt more confident in jeans and I get so many compliments. So worth it! I also tried on the 10” high rise but preferred the curvy cuz it doesn’t squish my curves! Can’t wait till they stock up on more so I can buy the plain black ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Jeans I've been looking for my perfect pair of jeans for years with no luck. Some fast fashion brands offer body-specific fits, but since I'm trying to make better shopping decisions those jeans were sadly off limits. I ordered some standard Madewell skinny jeans earlier this year and was disappointed by the waist gap and need to size up, but I'd started to feel like I had no other option but to accept badly fitting jeans. NO MORE! These jeans fit perfectly. I was skeptical about the instructions to order true to size, rather than sizing up. "Really?" I thought. "No website's jean sizing information has ever been accurate for me." Still, I did - and they fit! No waist gap at all. The waist is comfortably snug. I could wear these without a belt easily. Please offer this Curvy fit in more washes and styles! As long as Madewell makes these jeans, they have a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These So Much!! Wow...these jeans are really amazing! They run very true to size. I'm 5'5 and the regular length actually works great for me as opposed to the short length. The color is great - a dark, dark gray, almost faded black, the tears are trendy and tasteful and hit my knees in the right spot, the height of the jean fits comfortably and doesn't dig into my waist for that dreaded muffin top, the waist also doesn't gap so you won't flash anyone your underwear and you don't have to be constantly pulling them up every 10 minutes, and what makes me mostly happy is that they are stretchy enough to wear comfortably all day without losing their shape or stretching out too much - I can sit in them cross legged and they won't get bent out of shape!! These jeans really are fantastic - I can't speak more highly of them! Totally worth the money. I have to stop myself from buying every single pair....or maybe I won't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the cut! Make black without holes please! Got the dark blue wash and they are amazing-- perfect for work or drinks-- tried on the black but can't do the ripped knees look. Please make these without the knee rips! Amazing hip-waist-butt ratio though, perfect denim blend! Again, Please make these without the knee rips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precisely what I'd hoped for I've been waiting for Madewell to increase its size range for a long time. The curvy high-rise skinny fit is fantastic. I have a large hip-to-waist ratio and these jeans do not gape at the waist and do not pull at the hips. I don't have to constantly tug them up after climbing stairs or sitting down (a consistent gripe). The high waist holds in my stomach without being uncomfortable or shapewear-like. The leg opening is tight, as would be expected from a skinny. And even with the torn knees, there's no unsightly skin bulging, which was a concern. The material is sturdy and feels durable. Time will tell on the inner thigh seams, but the fit is not overly snug. Time will also tell on the durability of the torn knee bits, but so far so good. Basically, I'm sold. I'll take some more colors, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly curvy I’ve worn these jeans every day since I got them. They are the only jeans I’ve had that truly fit a curvy shape. I have a smaller waist and a larger butt and jeans that fit around my butt always gape at the waist. These fit like a glove, don’t slide down, and are super flattering! For reference, I’m 5’3 and 155 lbs; the 30 short fit like magic. Please make this style in black without rips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove! I struggle with finding jeans that fit me perfectly. I have big muscular thighs and a small waist. If a pair of jeans fit me in the waist, they are very tight in the thighs. Not these jeans! Not only do they fit perfectly in the waist but my thighs don't feel restricted at all. They are so comfortable and flattering! So far I have bought every pair of curvy jeans Madewell has to offer. I am so glad they now offer these type of jeans! Madewell, please expand this line and continue to make more varieties!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Casual Black Jean I purchased these in a size 34- I wear a 34 in The High Rise Skinny (10 inch rise) and a 35 in the Boyjean. The fabric is thinner than I expected, but the material seems sturdy. Would love this fit in a more opaque black w/o rips for work :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay! Ordered Black Sea and blue in Ontario wash. Love these super high waist jeans (retuned the other) Great fit and rips are perfectly placed. No reinforcement on rips, I will not wear them if I plan to sit on the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing fit I read all the reviews for these jeans and was still skeptical, but ordered them anyway and I'm glad I did. These are super flattering, cinch at the waist and they STAY UP which is always a pain point for me. They are true high waisted jeans, something I also struggle with, so they are up to my belly button, and I'd imagine cover it for shorter-torso'd people. I'm 5'7, 135lbs with a small waist and bigger booty. My only comment is that the material is kind of thin (because of the stretch factor) so I'm curious to see how long they last before wearing a hole in the inner thigh. But even with that super minor concern - I'll be ordering all of the washes per my boyfriends request!
