Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Madewell jeans Love these jeans! Could be my favorite to date. I wear a 28 or 29 and bought the 29's because that is all they had left on the sale page. They fit good. For a more skinny fit I could have bought the 28's but the 29's fit good with a little more room. Perfect wash and rips! Just the right amount of rips, not to much. Love the darker wash. Will be great for all seasons. So true to size, if you are in between sizes you pick whether you want more tight or more relaxed but still slim fitting. Love!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I always stayed away from high rise jeans. They seemed to be unflattering, making my butt look long and flat and my lower stomach look big. Not the case here! My butt looks great and these actually flatten out my stomach without feeling uncomfortable. The wash is beautiful, although I wish the knee rip wasn't so huge. A little distressing would have been better. They run true to size for the skinny skinny jeans, as I have found that with the boyfriends, I have to size down one or two sizes. I would say if you have had bad luck with high rise jeans in the past, give these a try. You just might be surprised!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite jeans These jeans are wonderful. The denim is soft enough to be comfortable, but not soft enough to lose shape. The higher waist is super comfortable. I went down a size vs. lower rise jeans. I ended up buying these jeans in 2 other colors after getting these. If you're debating the purchase -- you should do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was hesitant to try, but I LOVE them! I wasn't completely sold on high waisted pants. I had a bad experience trying on a high waisted pant at J.Crew, and it was completely unflattering, making me focus a lot of on my lower abdomen region, which I am not always confident about. I tried on these jeans, and I love them. There is just enough stretch, the distressing looks great, and the fit is perfect. I love tucking shirts in, so I think if you like doing that too, you should try high waisted jeans! They are my new favorite go-to jeans! I'm normally a size 25/26 and the 26 fit like a glove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy, stretchy jeans the color was not what I was expecting from the picture. it has a much more yellowy tinge to the wash, but I don't mind because it's very comfy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different than model photos I'm really indifferent on these. Although they're still cute on, the modeled photos are very misleading. The wash is way more vintage (notice the photo on the website before the modeled pictures pop-up). The tear in the knee is way bigger than the modeled picture shows. Fit true to size and has a good stretch- just beware that the color is not as blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute, but not as flattering as I had hoped I am having a hard time deciding whether to keep these or return for a pair of straight-leg jeans. The wash is cute, the high-rise is great. My complaint is that the inseam is actually quite short and the rip at the knee was all the way across the knee (vs the 3 inch rip you see in the pic). They are a little more torn-up looking than I was hoping and the short inseam makes my legs appear shorter than I would like. Its strange because I am only 5'5"... but I have long legs and a short torso.
