Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jeans!! I am new to the brand and I have a feeling my closet will be full very soon!! These jeans are amazing! I ordered a size 26 I’m 5’1” and weigh 118 lbs. They fit like a glove and are so comfortable. The high rise is just right and the pocket design in the front really holds everything in!! You must buy!!!

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 5 out of 5 by from NEW FAVORITE JEANS I only wear Madewell jeans so they're all usually a great fit for me but these are by far my favorite pair of jeans at the moment. I love the wash, the length, and of course the fit. Totally worth purchasing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highwaisted and stretchy! Another great jean from Madewell. I am 5'2" and weigh 145. A size 28 was the perfect fit. These are soft and stretchy and fits well with a casual look. The hole on the one leg is rather big but I don't mind. The pockets are sewn into the zipper and that makes it hold in a little tummy quite nicely.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great, not perfect I tried these at the store and the length, considering the rips at the bottom, hit at a weird place below my ankle bone. The super helpful employee suggested I order the “short” version and assured me the rise and fit would be the same. When thI arrived, the sizing was all around smaller. I could barely pull them on. I retired them and ordered the regulars, hoping they’ll shrink just a bit. I’m 5”6’ 135lbs.
