Product Details
With its waist-accentuating high rise and tapered legs, our vintage-inspired summer style is here to stay (call 'em "mom jeans"...if your mom was a '90s supermodel). Washed down for a supersoft finish, this 100% cotton pair will feel tight at first, but break in perfectly after a couple of wears.  
  • We recommend getting these in your usual size—they'll feel tight at first but stretch out juuuuuuust enough after a couple of wears.
  • Front rise: 11"; inseam: 28"; leg opening for size 25: 12 3/4".
  • Sits above hip, fitted through hip and thigh, with a slim leg.
  • Premium 100% cotton denim from Italy's renowned Candiani mill.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • 5'4" and below? Try our short inseam; 5'9"-5'11"? Choose Tall.

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 417.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans for any occasion I love these jeans! My first pair I got in a 28 and they are a bit tight on me, but very flattering. I’m typically a size 29 in jeans (including Madewells) but sized down according to reviews. The 28 size is a bit tight on my waist and thighs, so I got a size 29 to try afterward. The 29 is very loose and almost like a boyfriend jean. Very laid back, quick errand type feel. But still very stylish, however very loose on the bum and crotch area. I like both jeans for different reasons. Highly suggest ordering a couple sizes and trying them for yourself. You won’t be disappointed! My favorite jeans in style. They stretch after washing significantly, so keep that in mind when trying on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Pinup Mom Jeans You Didn’t Know You Needed I’m obsessed. As I was told, and found to be true, they are very snug at first but then the soft classic denim material molds to you. These are great if you have an hourglass shape like me. I’m 36-26-37 and wear a 26 in their stretchy jeans but in these I sized up to 27 for comfort, because I have wide hips and a fit derriere. I tried the 26 on and could get the zipper up but if you’re like me and get gassy from too tight of things on your tummy...size up one! I loved these so much I just got a pair of the darker option with embroidered daisies which will be perfect for summer (on sale and add’l 30% off!?!). I ordered the daisy ones online and also got a 27, and they fit the exact same way as these. These are the cutest! TLDR: size up one from your stretchy denim size if you want to be able to eat and breathe and move and sit, they’ll still be super cute and flattering. They look great with summer sandals! Try a cute platform to complete the vintage look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! The color and style are so amazing!! Definitely suggest these! I gave 5 stars because they’re great quality and so cute but due to the fact they’re 100% cotton they definitely bag out after about an hour of wear. If you’re like me, you don’t like to wash you jeans unless you have to but by the second wear they were really loose in my crotch area and legs that I want the try and shrink them. With that said, they’re still awesome! I ordered my usual size 27 and they fit true to size. Hit about 2.3/3 inches above my ankle bone after rolling them, I’m 5’7 132 lbs. But seriously Madewell, make more jeans in this color! It’s flippin’ amazing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just ordered another pair! LOVE This jean is incredible! I ordered one last summer and have worn them almost daily, so ordered a second pair bc I love them so much! The quality, style and color are perfect. The only non-skinny jean I have ever found to flatter my petite, curvy figure. Every time I wash them they just get better. Cuffed at the ankle forever! I am 5’2” 125 pounds but all hips/booty/thighs and though these are non-stretch (I am a 26 in levis, sized up in these to 27), they mold to my curves rather than restrict them. Obsessed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually perfect If you buy true to size, these fit SUPER tight when you first put them on & you can't sit down or put your shoes on. But, like the description says, after a few wears they stretch out to the perfect fit. If you wash your jeans often, I'd consider going up a size. If you wash pretty infrequently, true to size is a good bet. No boy jean has ever looked flattering on me, these are magic and/or witchcraft. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all body types I’m petite with a slender, straight-body type (like no hips whatsoever) and I’ve had a hard time finding high waist, mom-style jeans that don’t make me look like a straight up little boy. These are perfect! They go in at the waist and help create a little bit of shape in the hips. They also perk up the booty a bit, so no flat pancake butt! I read a lot of reviews from curvy girls that loved these, so I wanted to let the straight body types know that they work for us too! I did size down in these.. I don’t own any other Madewell jeans except overalls, but I got a 24 regular (roll them up) and wear a 25 in most all other brands. For ref I’m 5’4 110 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from truly the perfect jean I bought these jeans in the fall after looking for a pair of vintage-y, light denim, and after having success with madewell jeans in the past. These have blown me away - they are honestly the ONLY jean I wear anymore. The cut is so flattering, they are so comfortable for hours on end even without much stretch, and they go with every item in my closet. They do tend to stretch easily on wear, but they spring back if put through the wash. I wish I could go more wears without washing though! They have become the pinnacle of my style and are the only jean that can convince me to not wear leggings for a day. I would recommend these to everyone! I am 5'3", 110ish lbs, and got the 24 regular - when I tried on the 23 they felt really tight, but knowing these loosen up I considered that they might have fit better and not become so loose. However, since there is no stretch in the leg, I think the 24 is the better size for me so I can move around more freely. I hope madewell keeps these forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, A Pair of Flattering Non-Skinny Jeans! I've been eyeing these jeans for a while now, however due to the past experience with the (unflattering) mom jeans, I hesitated... Spring really brought me around towards lighter washes, and I placed the order with the "wth, there's no harm in trying" mentality. FYI, I'm 122lbs, 32-26-36, 5'7, and usually a 25 in Madewell jeans (26 with most other brands). I ordered the perfect summer jeans in 25 regular, as Madewell's jeans sizing has been really consistent for me. When I first pulled them out of the package, it was a wee bit challenging for me to pull these over my butt, and kinda difficult to zip up as well. I walked and sit around in them, they started to fit really well (there is a little gap between my back and the band when I sit, which is expected)! Hubby said they make my butt look unreal, like a barbie or something, lol... Leg-wise, these are more like loose fitting jeans for me. Totally recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never taking them off I am 5'4" 125 ish natural waist 27 and hips 37 ish .. so I ordered the 27's and 28's. Tried the 28's on first and immediately took them off -- too big, I know how these jeans stretch over time and it would be a mistake. 27's fit like a glove, like I've been wearing them already for a year, not tight at all, very flattering, really so great. In fact could be just a smidge tighter. There's looseness in the waist too, I could fit my hand, two hands maybe three hands between the waistband and the back of my waist, but honestly you can't even tell . I'm over here debating whether to get the 26's or allow the 27's to go through the dry cycle to cinch up. I’m so smitten I’ll probably stick with the 27’s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence booster I love dressing unusually but have always had a hard time showing my different sense of style in jeans. These jeans have been the pair that have helped me transition from exclusively wearing skinny jeans to wearing something that shows off my figure in a new and creative way. It might sound sappy, but these jeans are slightly unusual (at least for me) and help me to communicate better to others my confidence in myself and in my own differences. Beautifully thick material, extremely happy, springy wash. Perfection
