9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands-Down Favorite Easy - my favorite pair of Madewell jeans ever. They feel worn in and they're flattering - and they're true to size. The construction feels sturdy so i'm hoping they're around forever.. just in case, i bought a second pair. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pair of jeans! I've owned these jeans in a different wash for about 6 months now, and they were so good that I had to come back for more! These jeans make all my others seem subpar. They fit beautifully. The biggest problem I have with pants is that I have a fairly small waist but large thighs, so often pants that fit my thighs are far too big for my waist. These jeans fit both my waste and my thighs. They have the perfect amount of stretch; they are comfortable, but the waistband isn't so stretchy that I worry about them falling down or that I feel like I have to wear a belt. Also, they make my butt look great! I think these pants do run a little big. I wear a 27 in them, but I'm often a couple sizes bigger in other pants. I am 5'2, and they are probably about 2 inches too long for me, but I just roll them up and I like how they look that way. These jeans were so good that I insisted that my best friend buy a pair, and she loves them too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fingers crossed! I am so hopeful this new iteration of lunar jeans will be an improvement over the last. (My last pair ripped in an embarrassing way during a Christmas party I was hosting!) They feel just as soft yet structured as I was hoping & are more flattering than a $250 pair of jeans I tried when I was searching for black jeans that wouldn’t rip. I’m crossing my fingers that this new version (with Magic pockets- yay!!) will hold up. I plan to wear them A LOT since they’re so comfortable, go with everything, & look great on! For reference, I’m 5’2”, 110 lbs, pear shaped, and I took a 24 (I’m usually a 24 or 25 at Madewell, 26 in other brands). They’re a bit long, but I expected that since I ordered the regular length (Too bad they don’t come in short! Maybe someday...). I will say that the tag in mine says the fiber content is 92% cotton, 6% polyester & 2% elastane, which is different from the current online fabric content description. Maybe that’s a typo on the website that will be updated soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No clue why there are bad reviews These are great jeans. Slightly faded and feel broken in already. They are 92% denim, so the stretch is great! I'm not sure why there are negative reviews, honestly. I am 5'3" 123lbs and the size 27 for perfectly! I'm totally in love. I actually paid full price for these, that's how much I love them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already Broken In! These are great jeans. My most trusted black jeans from American Eagle ripped after 5 years so I went on the hunt for new ones and knew Madewell had to be a stop along the way. Turns out it was the last stop! I tried both the 10 in and the 9 in and these won by a landslide. The 10 in are also great but just a little too high -- they accentuated my butt a little too much. If you're into that, go for it. My local Madewell only had these in a 26 and 28, not my normal 27, and I was a bit nervous. Turns out the 26 fit perfectly. The woman working at Madewell also told me when I tried them on at the store, it's the smallest they'd ever be because they stretch a bit and form to your body. I've found this to be so true - they already feel like I've had them for years and I've only worn them 3 times. In almost all other pants, I wear a 27/4 and these fit great in a 26. I'm sure the 27 would also fit but would stretch too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super flattering I tried these on in the store and ended up not buying them since I don't need another pair of black jeans... Then I got home and ordered them online because they gave me legs for days and I couldn't stop thinking about them.. I'm 5'8" and curvy, a true 32, and these fit great. Enough structure to hold in my tummy and make my legs look super long. The height of the jean is perfect. These are basically the Roadtripper jeans with better material and structure and a much more expensive fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Going Back Honestly, this is maybe my third time repurchasing these jeans? I did have problems with the crotch ripping in one of my previous pairs, but that might just be because I wore them to death. And to death, I mean like 3-5x a week for over a year. Incredibly comfortable, but with a more structured look than a legging which I really appreciate. The wash does fade, but I've found that washing in cold water and not over-washing them helps a lot. And they make my short legs look just a teeny bit longer. Love these jeans and probably will repurchase them when this pair gives up the ghost too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best jeans ever I absolutely love these jeans. They are the perfect fabric, perfect amount of stretch, and great wash. I could live in these if I had to. Please keep making these in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from please make in 8" skinny! I loved the fit and feel of these jeans, but they were too high of a rise for my 5'1" frame. The black jeans in the 8" rise are thin and less "denim" like. Please make this for 8"!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They always rip but I keep coming back... I am replacing a pair that ripped in the crotch/thigh, as they always do. Usually my Madewell blue denim lasts 2+ years and the black denim 1 year tops. I have probably bought a new pair of these each year for the last 6 or 7. -- The fit is phenomenal, they're comfy, they age well until they die. I love this wash isn't TOO black. There are the people who want only the blackest denim and then there's me, who only wears faded. Lunar is the perfect faded black.
