Rivet & Thread Rigid Skinny Jeans: Step-Waist Edition

Rivet & Thread Rigid Skinny Jeans: Step-Waist Edition is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed... I had such high hope for these jeans, and couldn't wait to try them on when they came in the mail. Boy I was disappointed... The material is super soft and nice, and I love that they have no holes. They fit so well throughout the legs, and the waistband fits perfectly, however I was struggling to zip up the zippers. I ordered 25, which is the size I usually get from Madewell (5'7, 122lbs, 32-26-36). So essentially these jeans are taunting me for having a big butt:'-o... Eventually I managed to zip up the jeans, and worn them under two different occasions, however the tightness around my butt did not improve even one bit, the pockets are still carving in (if you get what I mean), and the pockets couldn't lay flat because of that (no magic pockets in these)... I will try to order one size up, and see how they work out, but I doubt it considering the legs and waist with 25 fit so well. In my opinion these were probably designed for people with narrow hips...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size up I rated these a 3 star only because I could not even get them on when they came in the mail. I ordered the same size (26) all my other madewell jeans are, and this pair run at least two sizes smaller... I'm sure they're a great pair of jeans but I won't know till I get a larger size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit very small Maybe it's just because I've been spoiled by Madewell's elastane blends, but these jeans, which seem durable and have a beautifully high rise, also seem to run VERY small. I ordered my regular size (26) and couldn't even get them past my thighs. I am disproportionally bootylicious but that has never been a problem before. I'm going to try ordering two sizes up, but I wish I knew if I should order three sizes up. Madewell, please consider posting waist and hip measurements for each size of your nonstretchy jeans: you'll save so much on shipping costs and your customers will be happier.
