Short 9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Ontario Wash: Distressed-Hem Edition

Short 9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Ontario Wash: Distressed-Hem Edition is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE JEANS!! Not sure what's with all the negative reviews. I own only Madewell jeans and these are similar fitting to my other ones. What do you expect ladies!!! If there are knee rips they will most likely rip more when you squat! That's how knee rips happen in the first place. What does it matter how wide the knee rip is? I absolutely love the wash on these! They are not as light as the button front 9" skinnies which I also own and love. I am consistently a size 31, some fit a little looser and some a little tighter, these would be a little tighter in the hip and leg but same in the waist as all my other 31's. These are super flattering. These could be my new favourite! Only complaint is they should be an inch to 2 inch shorter. I am 5'2" tall and these are a tiny bit long. Not cropped. I roll them up once for a cropped look. Unrolled will be good for fall. But if these are supposed to be cropped they would be cropped on someone 5'5" tall which I wouldn't say is short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-rise jeans ♡ I don’t normally write reviews but wanted to express my love for these jeans! I hate buying jeans! And I’m not exaggerating it gives me anxiety and makes me hate my body because I can never find anything that fits. I found these jeans while looking at their website and knew they were going to be expensive but I decided to make a trip to the nearest Madewell store which happened to be at Easton in Columbus, Ohio. I told myself I wouldn’t look at any price tags and if I found jeans that made me feel good I was going to buy them. Unfortunately they didn’t sell this style of jeans in short in the store so I ordered them and had them shipped ( that is my only complaint) I love these because they are the perfect high rise to suck in my mom bod I have going on and can honestly say these jeans make me feel good about myself and that is everything to me. Definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite summer jeans! Love these jeans! They are extremely flattering. I ordered size 24 short. I am 5’3” 120lbs. The color is a great wash for spring and summer time. You won’t be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jeans I always love madewell jeans, and these are a great style. They seemed to run a little smaller than other styles and they rip a little too easy for my liking but I would still recommend because they look good on! Size up perhaps

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Post Baby Solution I bought these two months after having our 2nd baby and am in love. Perfect stretch, perfect way to suck in the tummy and make me feel like a normal person again. I agree with the fact that the holes rip after wearimg but other factors out weigh that! A must buy especially if you recently had a kiddo!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too long for short people I ordered this in 'short' but the short is too long. I'm 5'1" and 100 pounds. Ordered a 23 and 24. 24 fit great, but comes all the way down to my feet. This style is supposed to be a more cropped look for it to be right. The inseam needs to be more like a 23" inseam instead of 25". Honestly if you are a normal height, I would order the 'short' version so it fits more like a crop! This would have been a great jean to add to my collection otherwise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome fit and look- quality horrendous I never write reviews- I want to start with that. Secondly I love love love the look and fit of these jeans. Fit like a glove they are longer than a short fit. (I’m under five feet and 115 lbs and orders 24 short.-I know I’m really short but they aren’t a petite length) However when putting them on an taking them off (on literally my first wear!) you pull up and down and the distressing at the thigh ripped like a piece of paper. It open straight across the thigh as if it was a pair of shorts. And the sizing was correct so it was really disappointing. I however love the way they fit and look so I’ll try a second pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Distressing weak I loved how these looked on me, but the second I bent my leg the distressing gave out and ripped even wider. I returned them and hope next time Madewell will reinforce the distressing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Fit Denim Cute and quality jean, but the “short” cut denim is not fitting like the petite denim. I have ordered two pair of the new Madewell short cut, and neither pair have fit like the petite.
