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: 25 1/2"; 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.
  • Monogramming available for US customers: To have this item embroidered with up to eight letters for $10 (free for Madewell Insiders), please call 866 544 1937.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yessss perfect light wash jeans! First off, i originally ordered these in my normal size (28) and while they fit pretty perfectly on the initial try on, I could tell they would stretch out quickly. The waist had a little extra room in the back and the front of the thighs was a bit loose which wasn't the most flattering. Think ordering a size down will def fix both of these issues! That being said, fabric and wash is amazing and great quality! Looks super cute with muscle tanks and a boyfriend blazer. Also really excited about the short inseam! I had tried the original version on in the store but the proportions were off on me (I have shorter legs) Also haven't been a huge fan of the back pockets / behind situation on most Madewell jeans -- these are very flattering from the back. 100% fav jeans I've purchased from Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit exactly as I hoped Ive always had an issue with madewell jeans that weren't skinny...until these!!!!. They fit exactly as the regular cut on someone that isn't petite. It would've been nice to get to try them on in store before buying but they ended up working out perfectly. The length is also perfect. No need to hem or synch the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans Great jeans, I sized up to make them baggier in the hips/waist but felt like I could’ve gone up even one more size. Also wish they had the magic pockets like other madewell jeans... it doesn’t appear that these do. But the color and denim and style are great - and I’m so happy they have them in Short size now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the initial tightness/rigidness of the cotton fool you!!! WOW I want to retweet every other review here about getting the size that you usually wear, even if it's really tight. I tried a pair on in thre store but had to order the same size in the short style online, and when they came in the mail they were so much tighter and stiffer than I remembered! I thought I must have messed up and ordered a size down, but after reading the reviews I decided to just wear them around for the day, even though they were so tight I couldn't even squat down. By hour 3 they were SO LOOSE AND COMFORTABLE and fit perfectly!! I have always hated wearing jeans because they can be so uncomfortable, but I want to wear this pair every day. As a side note, when washed they tightened up a bit but not nearly as tight as the first time I wore them, and then they loosened up really quickly. So don't be afraid to wash them, either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool & Comfortable, Effortless Style This is a great pair of jeans. A bit of a departure from my usual medium or dark wash skinny, but surprisingly easy to wear. Paired with a white button down, open cardigan, and smoking flats for work the other day (I have a casual dress code), but I can also see these being a summer weekend staple. I ordered my normal size; as the tag indicated, they felt tight when I tried them on, but stretched out perfectly during my first wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! i'm so used to low rise jeans that i need some time adjusting back to high waisted jeans. i'm 5'2 and size 24 is a good fit. a little tight when i tried it on but after first wash it loosen up a little. so versatile i can style it so many ways.
