9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite jeans These jeans are my absolute favorite. When I bought my first pair a year and a half ago I went with my normal size 28 that I had worn in the regular rise pants, but I soon found out that I needed to size down with the high rise if I wanted to avoid wearing a belt to prevent the waist gap. Other than fading a bit from the wash, they have kept their elasticity and look. I do think the belt loops are weak points of the pants since I did have to repair my belt loop after about a year of wear, but they are worth it. I love madewell denim and have had my other pairs of jeans for over 3 years it is still in great shape. I am not sure why there are so many negative reviews when I find the quality and the durability of these pants to be very good despite me abusing them by washing them constantly and drying them on high heat with all of my other clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, these jeans... This is my second pair. The first pair stood up pretty well but faded after many washings and wearings (about a year) and weren't looking as nice and uniform deep dark grey anymore so I decided to go in for another pair. I'm 5'3" and about 117-118 pounds, and 26 is generally my jeans size (although I tend to do better with petite sizes) so I'd say they are true to size? I do have a bit of a bum so perhaps a slimmer gal could go for a 25. I like that these aren't skin tight on me though, they are just nice and snug and fitted. They stretch out a bit during the day but no sagging. The rise is high but not too high, perfect for tucking in blouses and with the dark color I can easily wear them to work. They are versatile, look great, are good quality, and one of my fave pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jeans, runs large These fit amazingly and I love the slightly faded black wash, but be advised they run a size large. I am a 29 in Madewell jeans and the 28 is perfect. Curious to see how these hold up since so many reviews mention ripping in the thighs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart eyes emoji These jeans are le bomb-- great rise, length, and color. Sizing was definitely a little weird, I'm almost always a 26 (sometimes a 27) at 5'7" + 135#, and I had to go down to a 25 in these. The 26 had way too much fabric in the thighs and butt. These are not a true black, but I'm looking forward to them fading to a nice charcoal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go for namesake These are made so well! Remain snug over the course of the day, and fitted to perfection slightly below my belly button (through hip and thigh) with a slim leg and flared ankle–for gals with slimmer ankles/calves 5'5", 148 lbs, usually wear a 28; bought a sz 27

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and flattering I've been looking for the perfect black-ish jeans. These are so comfortable and flattering, and they are made well like their namesake says. Can't recommend them enough. I went and bought another pair in blue because these are perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ONLY buy on sale I love these jeans. They're my favorite pair I've ever worn. The look: The color is a great dark gray/almost black that goes with absolutely everything they have the perfect amount of stretch, are the perfect thickness to conceal any lady lumps or cellulite that not all stretchy jeans cover, but not be so thick you can't move/sit cross legged in them/do lunges, whatever you want. They are high enough waisted to be fashionable and trendy, nice enough to wear with a nice outfit/to dinner, but casual enough to wear with boots and a tshirt. They are my everything. The fit: I'm usually a small 26 in most jean brands, but am a 25 in these jeans. I have a small waist but shapely hips, and these are the only pants I can find that hug my hips AND my waist. They're perfect. No waistband gap. The value: So poor. I've been through about 5 pairs of these because they rip right where everyone says they do - right at the inner thigh/right behind the booty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will fall apart This is about the 5th time I've given these jeans a chance, unfortunately I got the least amount of wear out of these. I have had these MAYBE 4 months, barely washed them, NEVER dried them, & taken great care but once again madewell jeans fall apart. It's so unfortunate because madewell makes up about 85% of my closet but unfortunately I won't be buying again. I have no problem spending money on jeans and LOVE the fit and color of these but am so incredibly disappointed in the quality. Do better madewell, you are losing valuable customers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the style & fit, but ripped after <3 months These jeans look and feel great. They are super flattering. I did think they ran a little bit large (went down one size from my usual). The real downside is that they ripped after only 2 1/2 months of normal (not excessive) wear. Disappointed in the quality... I see now that I should have read all the other reviews before purchasing!
