9" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans

9" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pant! These pants are my absolute favorite of any I wear. In fact, last year I bought these in black and knew I needed to get more. A year later I found the plum and got another black. Even after a year, my original ones are still in perfect condition. You cannot beat the fit and wearability of these. Wish they came in more colors. I'd buy them all. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from get two pairs Love these so much, I got two in the same color. They are flattering and soft and comfortable -- what more do you want? Size down on these as they stretch out. I'm normally between a 27 and 28 but I got a 26.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my go-to pants i live for these pants, have purchased a new pair every year since madewell has been making them. this year the high-rise version has knocked them out of the ballpark. only complaint is that they tend to stretch out a little too much during the day around the knees; i would go a size down but then they're too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would wear every day! I love these pants! I don't agree with some other reviews about them getting too stretched out. I've had stretchy pants get too stretched and never go back even after a wash. These don't do that at all. I wish they made them in more colors because I would buy each one. They are very well made! I am 5'9, 125 lbs and the 27 long fit perfectly and I normally wear a 27. I also think they're true to size. They're also so soft. Great material!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Pant These sateen jeans have been my go-to for the last two years - and I am so overjoyed to see them back in stock ! The fabric is magic, it doesn't wrinkle, collect lint or pet hair, and transitions between work and casual seamlessly. (Also they wash and dry beautifully!) The pants do stretch out, but never in a saggy way, just in a 'little more room in the waist' way. Go for it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size down! These are my FAVORITE pants I own! I was purchasing them in the plum color when the store manager asked me if I sized down. She had me try on the size smaller than I usually wear and they ended up fitting perfectly. I wear them all the time and have since gone back and purchased them in black too. I'm 5'4", 115 lbs, petite/athletic build and size 24 fits perfectly. Get them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering, polished yet comfy! I got a pair in Deep Plum. These are one of the most flattering pants I have ever owned! I am 5'6" 150lbs and size 29 fits well. After a day of wearing them, they felt a little loose but didn't look saggy at all. I am planning on getting another pair in black and will try to see if size 28 works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from -magic pants- These sateen jeans are perfection! They are extra soft, but still firm and flattering. The Madewell signature v seam in the back works wonders. They don't collect dust and lint like traditional black denim. Also, slightly polished and definitely work for casual casual business casual. New favorites! I'm 5'6 and I needed the tall size in order to wear them into the colder months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Comfiness These are the best pants - I got them on sale and wish I had the option to size down but still love them in their slightly stretched out glory. Please don't discontinue these! I would love to get them in additional colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans Super flattering. I'm a pear shaped 5'1" woman, and these jeans make me look taller and thinner. They're so soft too! Love the plum color.
