The High-Rise Slim Boyjean: Knee-Rip Edition

The High-Rise Slim Boyjean: Knee-Rip Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect weekend jeans! I really, really liked these when I saw them online. I went to a store to check them out in person and try them on. They are PERFECT weekend jeans. I say 'weekend jeans' because I cannot wear distressed jeans to work but if I could I would most certainly wear these! The high-rise; the wash; the high cotton content; the right amount of give; and the raw hem with ripped knees are all on point. Madewell just got it right with this jean!!! I am 5'2 and usually wear a 26 in madewell jeans but I sized down for a closer fit although they still fit slightly relaxed. I highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo flattering! Can you be in love with your Jeans? Yes! These cuties arrived today and wow the fit is so flattering. I like them so much, I'm definitely going to buy a 2nd pair. ☆Fit - hugs your curves in all the right places, no sagging! ☆High Waist - very comfy, cute w/top tucked in or out. ☆Wash - little lighter than I expected, but I love it! Perfect for Spring/Summer. ☆Rise - above my ankles, can be cuffed up once too w/o looking too short. ☆The stretch in these are just right. So comfy. ☆Distressed knee holes - are at my knees, slightly hit above when sitting. ☆Overall - I recommend these. Can't wait to wear with MW sandals or trainers. For reference: Height - 5'4 Weight - 105 to 110 Typical MW Jean Size - 24

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST PERFECTION! That's All! The wash is just on obsessed. Also, the length, leg room and rise are so easy and on trend right now. Great summer wash. I religiously wear a 24 in calis and skinny high rise and I took a 23 in these since I wanted them more fitted. Still roomy but not super slouchy. So if you want the slouchy look go with your normal size. Snatch them up before they are gone! My new fave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite new jeans!! Cannot recommend these jeans highly enough- they are so flattering AND comfy! Even when sitting most of the day in class, these jeans are super comfortable and don't "cut" into you! Honestly, I might buy another pair just because I have already worn them four days in a row. For reference, I'm just under 5'7", 140 lbs, wide hips & a narrow waist (aka pear shaped.) I ordered a 27, my usual jean size, and they were perfect. They will stretch out a bit over time, but they mold perfectly to your body. Do yourself a favor and invest in these jeans!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing fit and overall style So glad that these now come In a high rise. I usually wear size 27 in skinnies but I wear 25 in the boyjean and cruiser straight. The size 25 is perfect if you want an on trend look (skinny straight). If you like them a bit looser I would size down 1 size instead of 2, however, they do stretch with wear. Don't hesitate to size down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I am definitely into the true boyfriend type jean and these jeans are just that. I am 5'6'' 113 lbs and I typically wear a 25 in every single pair of jeans I own from Madewell, and I own quite a few, in all styles and cuts. After reading all the other reviews, I was afraid I would need a 24, so I went to the store to try them on. I tried on the 25 and they were perfect. I am going for the boyfriend fit, with the bagginess that would be expected and a 25 was perfect for me. If you are looking for a normal tight fitting jean, I would size down, but I love how these fit and I can wear them with all my crop tops. I don't need a belt to hold them up and they are perfect the way they are. They are more of a capri length on me, hitting a few inches above my ankle, but they will be great for spring and summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Goldilocks Jeans! I've been on the hunt for the perfect jean after having a baby almost a year ago. I'm over skinny jeans and classic boyfriend jeans are too baggy for my petite frame. These are exactly what I've been looking for! The jean material is just right; thick enough to feel high-quality and have structure, while stretchy enough to feel cozy and hug curves. I'm 5' 3", 114lbs with baby-momma hips and typically a size 26-27 in Madewell. Originally ordered the 26 and they were super baggy. Similar to the other reviews - I definitely had the kangaroo pouch. I'm trying to hide my kangaroo pouch, not flaunt it. I exchanged the 26 for a 25 - which made me giggle because I haven't been that size in 10 years. The 25's fit PERFECTLY! No gap in the back, butt looks great, length is perfect (just above the ankle) and no kangaroo pouch. I see myself living in these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cutest ever literally cutest jeans of all time but SIZE DOWN! I wear a 24 in high rise skinnies and a 23 in cali demi boot and the 23 in these is still a bit big on the waist. unfortunately there is no size down so I'm just going to deal with it other than that, these are the cutest most comfortable and versatile jeans ever. I'm using these as an alternative to the perfect summer jean because I've got too much booty to make those happen ;) buy them! you won't regret it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable denim, but stretches out quite a bit These are the most comfortable jeans I own! I waited nearly 2 months for these after they were backordered twice, and it was worth the wait. The only reason I can't give 5 stars, is because they have stretched out so much after just 3 wears that I need a belt. It's like they grew a size and a half. When I first put them on they fit great, but I just had to wash them after a few light wears and even put them in the dryer (which I never do with jeans.) I wish they stayed true to size a little more and kept their shape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute In Theory My regular size fit loosely and gave me a kangaroo pouch, which was *not* the look I was going for. I have returned them. The style and wash were cute, except for that, which was unforgivable.
