9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 189.
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 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from please work on the quality of these, Madewell Possibly against my better judgement, I just received my second pair of these. My first pair began to rip in the crotch area after about 6 months (based on other reviews I'm not the only customer who has encountered this issue). I shopped around for a different pair of high waisted black skinnies and kept coming back to these. They are flattering, comfortable and the wash is great. Here's hoping they hold up better the second time around and that Madewell works on making these more substantial.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved these at first, but wound up disappointed I adore Madewell, and have never had an issue with any of the items I've purchased over the years. I decided to suck it up and spend the money on these jeans after falling in love with a pair of blue jeans I’d previously bought. These fit like a glove, held their shape wear after wear, and I couldn’t have been happier with them. I washed them for the first time yesterday in cold water, on the gentle cycle, with dark care laundry detergent. They now look like I have owned them for years – they are no longer a deep black, but a washed out black with light grey streaks all over. I’m torn between buying another pair and getting them dry cleaned, or just giving up on their black jeans entirely.
