Product Details
Our curvy fit is finally here (!) and, yes, it comes in our whole range of sizes. We took our classic skinnies with hold-you-in Magic Pockets in front and reengineered them for those with an hourglass shape. What does this mean? A narrower waist with a contoured band, a longer rise (for a rounder booty) and a little extra room at the hips and thighs. Simply put, you're gonna look amazing in these jeans. And, bonus, this pair has hand-ripped knees and cool raw hems.
  • Please note: Choose your regular size—these jeans were designed for curves, so no need to size up or down.
  • Front rise: 10 1/2"; inseam: 26"; leg opening for size 25: 10".
  • Sit above hip, fitted through hip and thigh, with a skinny leg.

Short Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea

Short Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect jean I wanted to love madewell jeans when I first discovered them but they never quite fit me right. That all changed when they created the curvy high rise jean in short. I am 5’2 115lbs and carry my weight in my butt and thighs. I ordered the 24s and they fit perfectly. I plan to order more than in this same style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Jeans! After a body change, 50+, it was difficult finding jeans. I thought MADEWELL was out of the question because they didn't carry a plus size. I was at a retail store and asked, just in case, if they carried curvy jeans. The team member came back with 2 pairs! I tried them on and they fit, held me in in all the right places, and were super comfy! I hope they carry on with a plus size jean. I love MADEWELL's clothing it's quality, style, and diversity are second to none!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jeans if you have curvy hips and a small waist Ladies, if you're petite but have curvy hips these jeans are for you! I just wish Madewell carried more curvy, short jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's so novel to find jeans that fit! Props to Madewell for making a curvy fit jean (in short, no less!). These fit me really well, which is amazing and so rare. (I'm 5' 3", 115, ordered a 26 short). However... this denim is thinner and stretchier than I would prefer. I already have tons of stretchy jeans because that's the only style that usually fits my hips and waist. It would be truly amazing to find a pair of non-stretch denim that had a curvy fit. Madewell, give us curvy cotton mom jeans! Please! *And yes, these are slightly lighter grey than I expected based on the photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOOVVVE the fit, but they're more dark grey than black! I seriously love the way these pants fit! Especially for someone who has thunder thighs and more booty, its literally impossible to find a comfortable pair of pants. I am 5'2" 135lb and I got 27S and the length fit of the pants is great. My only gripe is that I was looking for a pair of black jeans and I would say that these are more like dark grey than a true black. I think the carbondale wash is a darker black than this pair which I'm hoping will come back so I can order it....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit, but the rips are terrible & enormous--my first bad pair of Madewell jeans I'm a huge fan of Madewell jeans and own several pairs. I absolutely love the way these jeans fit and feel. I ordered the black ones because I have the dark blue wash and fell in love. However, the rips are huge--more like massive gaping holes than distressed rips--and hit at an unflattering spot on the leg. The great, tight fit means that, every time you sit down, unless you have very skinny legs, the fabric presses into your thighs in an unflattering way. Additionally, every time I put these on, no matter how gentle I try to be, the rips get bigger! Soon they'll look like knee length pants with denim socks. Madewell, PLEASE make these in black without the rips, or at the very least make the holes smaller and reinforce the edges so that they don't completely shred and fall apart.
