10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lydia Wash

10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lydia Wash is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect Jeans These are un-improvable! This is my first pair of the 10" high rise skinnies and wow--the comfort factor is out of this world. I am --5.1" and weigh 105 and I didn't think these would work with a shorter torso. But I was wrong--they feel great, and I love them because if you are having "fat day" around the belly, they hold you in without squeezing. The fabric is not stiff either and it makes for easy movement. Also, they are super skinny without ever being second skin sticky. Love the wash--classic dark blue. The high rise is a genius move!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jeans! This is the first pair of madewell jeans and I am thrilled that I finally tried them! I got them on sale, but even without the discount they are great quality/fit/value/style.The denim is thick, yet stretchy and comfortable. It doesn't stretch out and become saggy during the day. The cut of the jeans is really flattering - comes up just below my belly button and hugs my seat in the right places. Also, the pant leg ends at just about my ankle, which is cute for booties/sandals. If you are taller than 5'6" you may want to order the "tall" version. Overall, really like these! I am 5'6", 115 llbs with a 24.5 inch waist - I wear a size 24 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Jeans (size down) I ordered two pairs of Madewell's shorts last summer and the waists were surprisingly gappy even when sizing down. These do not have that problem. I'm 5'6" with 26" waist and 36" hips and the size 25 fits absolutely perfect - high rise and hug my figure. I have never had jeans that feel made for me and I love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! Being a 55 year old, it's nice to have a pair of jeans that are flattering without being to low cut!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fave I looked everywhere for jeans that actually fit high waisted (aka at my belly button) while not being made of lycra. These are great- comfy and don't stretch out. But you may want to try them on, I have a 28 (my usual size) and a 27, and the smaller size fits a bit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love 'em! will buy the black pair asap. 5'8'' 130lb, the 26 fit really well. i considered buying the long version because i hate my ankle showing but the regular hit just at my ankle. they have a bit of stretch which i like, i have larger calves and some skinny jeans are too tight on the bottom but not these. high waist looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought 3 pairs in one week...oops. I recently lost 40 pounds and had to buy all new clothes. I went and tried these on and ended up buying 3 pair in different washes. They are super flattering and comfortable. You will want to size down! I usually wear a 30 or 31 and I bought these in a 29. I also love the ladies at the Madewell store in Nashville, they are fabulous :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I'm so glad Madewell decided to make some 10" high risers, as I love the 9" ones but these are even more flattering on the waist. They make me look curvy and hourglass as they really emphasise your waist-hips ratio, so be aware if that's not something you want. And they look great on the bum, which is kind of a miracle for high-waisted jeans. The Lydia wash is perfect - plain indigo, no fading, barely any distressing. They're the right length on me at 5'5" - if I was any taller they'd look cropped. They're not as skinny on the ankle as the 9" high risers, but plenty skinny enough not to look baggy or bunch. They fit perfectly on my hips, waist and thighs in my usual size 25. The denim is great quality, comfy and not too stretchy so it holds everything in beautifully. I'd love a pair in grey or black (not a fan of the Captain wash which is really acid in person).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight at first then they give a little I was worried at first because they were very firm but as soon as I moved around a little they gave and were like comfortable legging fit but in lovely denim. I'd buy another pair in another darker denim if available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flattering and comfortable comfortable and cute. I ordered size 25, and they fit perfectly for me. I'm 5'4", average to slim body type. I got pretty short legs, and the length of these jeans are longer than my ideal, but that's expected.
