The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 290.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Jeans - Once I got them on I normally don't write reviews but thought I had to say something about these jeans. I ordered them online from Canada so I was a little anxious about sizing. In the end I ordered them in my usual madewell size 28. I am 5'6" and 145lbs, curvy with a big bum, wide hips and a narrow waist. When I initially got them in the mail I was super disappointed and even thought they might have made a mistake with the labelling. They were so tight I couldn't get them on! Since I had ordered online and returning was a pain I decided to stick it out and after a little wiggling finally got them on and zipped, they stretch out a ton. They are super flattering and the denim is lovely and thick, winners for sure! I just wanted to write this review as a heads up to all the curvy girls out there, theses jeans are TTS, but as someone who isn't used to 100% denim it might take a bit of getting used to and doing lunges/squats in your living room but trust me, it's worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go-to all time fave!!! these are the most perfect pair of Madewell jeans. i was hesitant at first because i only did skinny jeans, but my god these are amazing! flattering as all heck and especially with a cute sweater! soooo good. Madewell: can you make these exact ones in black?? i’d buy 7 pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I've searched for months for the perfect pair of boyfriend/straight leg jeans that won't overwhelm my petite frame (5'1") or stretch out while I'm wearing them. The search ended when I found these jeans. They are so well-constructed––loose enough to be comfortable, but still slim enough to show the shape of your legs. The length is also great because I can roll the hems up (again, I'm short) and not have them look too bulky/awkward. I'm honestly in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genuinely perfect for any season Second time buying these jeans. My first pair wore out, but only because I wore them almost daily for two years. Can't recommend highly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool & trendy mom jeans with lots of character These jeans are everything I've been searching for and more. Beautiful quality and great fit - they run TRUE TO SIZE. The description is accurate - they feel snug at first, but because they are 100% denim they will stretch out just enough. I'm am a true 28 in all Madewell jeans (5'4, 135 lb) including these. I've wanted a pair of high-waist, light wash, straight leg "mom" or boyfriend jeans for a long time and couldn't find anything that came close, or at least didn't have rips and tears (not a fan of that look). These fit the bill and I'm so happy I purchased them despite all of the mixed reviews. If you're still debating, BUY THEM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jeans Believe the hype of these jeans. They are amazing! I sized down from my normal 25 and they fit perfectly. They make my booty look awesome! The wash is light but I think it'll transition well into fall as well. I only wear Madewell jeans now and these are a great addition to my collection. I am 5'4 and 115 lbs, size 24 fits like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering high waste jeans These jeans are so flattering - they make my butt and legs look amazing! I am 5'0, 105lbs, and I ordered a size 24, which fits like a glove! I wanted to get a pair of jeans in between a straight leg/mom jean, but had a lot of trouble finding a pair that looked good on my petite/curvy frame. These jeans are super versatile; easy to dress up by pairing with heels and a sassy top or dress down with a tank and sandals. Full disclosure, sitting is not the most comfortable, but the lack of comfort is totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a believer As a child of the 90s, I have a certain nostalgia for this style of jean. But I never thought that they would be flattering on me, since I have an hourglass shape and somewhat muscular legs (I wear a size 27 in jeans, for reference). I was totally wrong; these jeans are incredibly flattering on me. I thought that a light wash denim would emphasize my hips and make me look wider, but the cut and sturdiness of the denim actually make me look leaner. As soon as I tried these jeans on, I didn't want to take them off. I went with my usual size, 27, and they are just the right amount of roomy on me. I suggest trying them on in store first to see if one size down works for you, however. I wish that Madewell would make a short inseam version of these jeans (I'm sure that taller women would also appreciate an inseam tailored for them as well).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are PERFECT I adore these jeans and I'd wear them every day if I could. I'm 5'7" and 118 lbs., I bought a 26 for extra length in the leg and took in the waist slightly but as is, they were still pretty near perfect. Can I buy every wash?!?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these in two sizes; wear them both A LOT! I am normally a 24 and I bought both a 24 and a 23. I wear the larger one on days where I plan to eat a lot (most days, haha); and 23 more for "going out" with a slimmer fit. They do stretch out a bit so I wash them after just about every wear — the 23 probably can be worn 2-3x before they need to be put in the dryer. I'm 5'4" and weigh about 112 lbs.
