Product Details
Lean and legs-for-days sexy, our famous perfectly faded black jeans are made of best-of-the-best denim. The 9" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet.

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fingers crossed! I am so hopeful this new iteration of lunar jeans will be an improvement over the last. (My last pair ripped in an embarrassing way during a Christmas party I was hosting!) They feel just as soft yet structured as I was hoping & are more flattering than a $250 pair of jeans I tried when I was searching for black jeans that wouldn’t rip. I’m crossing my fingers that this new version (with Magic pockets- yay!!) will hold up. I plan to wear them A LOT since they’re so comfortable, go with everything, & look great on! For reference, I’m 5’2”, 110 lbs, pear shaped, and I took a 24 (I’m usually a 24 or 25 at Madewell, 26 in other brands). They’re a bit long, but I expected that since I ordered the regular length (Too bad they don’t come in short! Maybe someday...). I will say that the tag in mine says the fiber content is 92% cotton, 6% polyester & 2% elastane, which is different from the current online fabric content description. Maybe that’s a typo on the website that will be updated soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best jeans ever I absolutely love these jeans. They are the perfect fabric, perfect amount of stretch, and great wash. I could live in these if I had to. Please keep making these in the future!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved but didnt last long. I've owned several pairs of denim for many years, but this pair didn't last long before they finally ripped in the crotch. I am pretty disappointed because they were my go-to denim. Since this was the second pair of Madewell jeans that didn't last very long and ripped either in the crotch or under the butt, I probably wont be ordering anymore Madewell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible, lasting chemical smell When I first tried these on I loved the fit. Unfortunately on my first wear I noticed a strong chemical smell. It was a little overwhelming, especially when indoors. I figured a few washes would help get rid of the smell. I tried a few tricks, adding baking soda to the laundry detergent, using a bit of castile soap. Nothing worked! 6 months later, countless washes later, and they still have a nasty chemical smell. Makes me nervous to wear. Very disappointing for such expensive jeans.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too stretchy Wish they were more denim, and run really big, bag out easily. :( very sad
