The High-Rise Slim Boyjean

The High-Rise Slim Boyjean is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 138.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Wears In I'm glad Madewell started including sizes above 32. The pants fit great in the waist! My legs run larger than average so they aren't quite as loose as they are supposed to be, but I knew that going into the game. So if you have "wide calves" they aren't loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes, yes, yes! I have been lusting over these for months. I finally purchased them in a size down from my usual size based on recommendations from other reviewers. They did not disappoint. I love the more relaxed fit paired with the high rise. They are mostly 98 percent cotton but still have a good amount of give. After wearing skinny jeans for years it feels great to wear a pair of straight leg jeans. These go really well with boots, sneakers, and anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGH-RISE LOVE! Backorder was worth the wait...just received these today. The color is beautiful and fit is super comfy! Probably the most comfy MW Jeans I now own. Thanks to other reviews, I sized down to 23, as the fit is slightly large. My only concern is...the trendy fraying look on the pockets. Looks like the gold thread missed some of the stitching on the inside of pockets. Hoping they'll hold up ok. Debating on returning for replacement pair...but after studying the stock pics, they have the same fraying on outter pockets. Assuming fraying/stitching will be the same on the inside of the replacement pairs pockets too. For reference: 5'4 and 105 to 107 lbs. Typically wear 24 in other style MW Jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday jean I had an older pair of the slim boy jean with a lower rise and they were my all time favorite pair of jeans until I ripped a massive hole in the knee. I went to replace them and tried on the high rise version and absolutely love them. The fit is amazing, I love these as a weekend jean because they're super comfortable to lounge around in but I still look put together. I'm 21, 140 pounds, and 5'7". I usually wear a 26 in Madewell jeans, but went with the 25 so they'd fit snug in the waist. The rest of the leg fits great and will probably loosen up a bit after some wear so I'll get that more relaxed look. I would love to see these in a lighter wash as well as in black! I'd also love if they'd bring the lower rise version back!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect jeans for the curvy and athletic I am always in the look out for the perfect jean for my body and this comes close to perfection! So happy to read the customer reviews and the reviews do not disappoint! I am athletic and curvy! I normally wear a size 27 in Madewell jeans but ordered the 26 and the fit has been perfection. The jeans hugs my but, thighs, and calves without suffocating them with tightness and my waist does not have a gap in them because the high waist compensates. I love the color of these jeans, I know the distress effect on the demin adds interest. But I can see how people could be turn off by this. I say it adds something more to them and you will eventually grow to like them. Madewell please make them in black please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Madewell jeans! I am obsessed with these jeans. I've been looking for a 90's-inspired jean that is still flattering and with a modern fit. I wanted to love the Madewell Perfect Summer jean, but they were too tight in the thigh and loose in the waist. A little too "mom jean" for my taste. I don't have stick thin legs - I'm muscular and have a booty - so some of the 90s fits don't work well on me. These jeans are absolutely perfect. The high rise is super flattering and the leg isn't too tight. I would absolutely size down in these if you want a fit that is a little loose, but still hugs the body. I am usually a 25 in most Madewell jeans (I am 5'4" and 127 pounds, with a petite and athletic build) and I got a 24. I know it's scary to go outside your normal size, but you won't regret it. I wear them a lot with tucked in t-shirts and sandals, or loafers and sweaters. My only gripe is that they don't come in faded black. I hope you are listening, Madewell! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best slim boyjean This has become my new favorite pair of jeans from Madewell. Def will be on repeat. I love how it tucks my mom tummy and make me feel put together. I sized down after reading previous reviews and am not disappointed. They fit a little snug at first but they did mold and stretched out to fit perfectly. LOVE this new high-rise slim boyjean. Wish they had other washes aside from the distressed painter one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These! I love these jeans. They are comfortable, well made, and the fit is great. I love that they are slim yet relaxed. I usually wear a size 25 in Madewell jeans and that is what I purchased in these. I tried on both a 24 and a 25, as others had suggested sizing down, and while the 24 fit, the style then was more skinny jean than slim and relaxed. I would suggest trying on a couple different sizes to ensure you get the fit you want. I love the high waist on these, too. My new go to jeans for the fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slimming and comfortable I've got about 7 pairs of Madewell jeans in my closet and these are the best so far. The tapered leg is so much more flattering for curvier women. I'm 5"7 and 155 lbs and the 27 fits perfectly (normally I'm a 29). As I write, I'm buying two more of these exact same pair. They will be my die hards and I hope to be wearing them for years and years to come. Have gotten so many compliments on them. Madewell - please make these in black. My wardrobe will be complete!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting for These High Rise Slim Boy Jeans I love my Madwell slim boy jeans and have several pairs of them. I prefer high rise but have made do with the regular rise because they're such great quality jeans. I've got a size 29 for days when I'm feeling blah, a 28 when I want to look more polished, and I got these in 27. They're tight but I know they'll stretch as my others do. I hope they'll do more of this high rise; I'll be a fan for life!
