Product Details
Lean and sexy, this one's legs-for-days look comes from using best-of-the-best denim. The 9" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky new detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (plus, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable). Go ahead and tuck in your shirt—you've got nothing to hide in these jeans.

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Button-Through Edition

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Button-Through Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Jeans As someone who almost always finds myself leaning towards black skinnies as a go to, these were a breathe of fresh air. These are incredibly flattering even for those who are pear shaped and tend to stay away from whiskered and distressed lighter fades, which is why I have found myself with 10 pairs of black higher-risers and no blue jeans. I also took a risk by buying a size smaller than my normal size due to some weight loss and my other 9" high-rise bagging out on me sometimes. The only issue, the inevitable falling off of the buttons. My fix? My standard go-to, super glue! Many people have been discussing how tailors can't fix the buttons once they come out in one piece, so I ended up gluing the inside portion of the back-side of the button to the inside portion of the jean, bonding the denim to the inside of the back essentially. It's been about three weeks of wear with no issues, although I have no washed yet. Worth the try though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and flattering These jeans are great! My daughter, who is 23, has a pair and they look great on her. They are her favorite jeans. I borrowed them from her and asked her if I could keep them because I loved the fit. She said absolutely not! So, I bought my own pair! PS.. I am 55 years old. They look good on everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Workers These are probably THE best jeans I have ever owned. From the moment I tried them on in store I knew I had to have them. They lift and hug in all the right places. Love the buttons, gives them a vintage look. I'm usually a 27 in other premium brands and bought a 27. They fit perfectly. I've worn them for a week straight and they feel and look better with each wear. The price is a gift. 400 USD jeans have NOTHING on these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Say hello to my favorite jeans These jeans are my new favorite. Style points for the button up in the front and smile points for how slim and fabulous they make me feel. It's like magic how these pants just like pull you together in all the right places, but at the same time you don't feel like you are being squeezed to death. I had tried SO MANY different jean companies and I'll never go back to any other jeans. Please never stop making these so I can always have them in my life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit I'm typically a 28 in madewell jeans but had to size down to 27 with these jeans. They were a little snug at the waist but stretch out and now fits perfectly. No muffin top. Amazing fit! I normally don't for for high waisted jeans but these are divine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEW FAV JEANS 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND LOVE THESE JEANS!!!!!! They just came in today and they are my new favorites! This is my 4th pair of Madewell jeans, I am 5' 110lbs and I wear a size 24. They literally feel like they were custom made for me that's how well the fit length wise and in the waist. I also love the button fly. Definitely ordering another pair of this same style!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering These jeans are so cute and very flattering. I love that they are high waisted and the buttons add that extra detail. Not to mention, the customer service at Madewell is amazing. I would definitely recommend these. The compliments will keep coming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the buttons I bought these jeans a few weeks ago, and after a few washes I'm still loving them. The high waist is super flattering and the buttons are very cute. My other Madewell jeans are 27s and I bought these in 28s because the smaller size was a little tight when sitting down. I'm 5'9" and 132 lbs for reference. They stretch a tiny bit, but not to the point where it bothers me. I am thinking about taking them to a tailor to get a seam sown along the bottom of the jeans. They are progressively getting more frayed, and I don't want them much more frayed than they are now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and fit This is my first pair of Madewell jeans and I'm so pleased with them. Amazing fit, great quality jeans with a true heavier, non-stretch material, and the perfect amount of distress. I love the button details and the shade is perfect for spring/summer. I usually wear a 28 in other jeans and got a 28 in these. I would buy other colors in these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES! for all the curvy ladies out there (i'm 5'5", 155lbs, and wear 31s), these jeans are great! the rise isn't too high that it bunches in the tummy, and the length is perfect. there is some distressing (which i typically dislike), but i liked it here. i was also turned off by the picture of the jeans (without the model) because the wash looked unappealing, but in real life, it looks great. 10/10, i want to marry these jeans.
