Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans, but listen to associates on sizing This was my third pair of 9" high-rise jeans, but my first pair in my true size (27). I'm 5'8"/135, and usually I buy my jeans a size up to give a more relaxed feel, so I got a 28 for my first two pairs of 9" high-rises (one white, one a light denim wash). I really wish I had listened to the sales associate who said to buy a size down. The 28s are now so loose in the waist that I have to wear a belt to keep them up. The 27s made my legs look like muscle sausages when I tried them on in the store, but instantly gave once I wore them and now have a more relaxed fit. Next time I might even try the 26s. Self-inflicted size complications aside, I love these jeans. Seriously though, legs for days. They're awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from believe the hype i hate to say it but i am skinny fat. that means i have cellulite and i am in terrible shape right now. the dreamy part about these jeans is that they create a total lie that my body is not the mess that it currently is. haha. they fit wonderfully, are very great on curves (i'm a 26 but with a high hip to waist ratio)- the length is good, the wash is perfect. I think i am going to marry these jeans and have baby jean babies. seriously though- i am online right now to see if this style comes in any other washes. i love them so much I might need to buy a back up pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect jeans! I am a thick size 2 but not quite a size 4. So I ordered a 26 and these jeans are perfect because of the stretch in them. They are so comfortable just like Madewell claims. I am definitely going to buy more in different colors. I like to wear them with a relaxed tee and Birkenstocks. I also don't have long legs and I'm 5'4 and the length is perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They are back!! these are AMAZINGGGGGG. I purchased my first pair over a year ago and nearly cried when they started to tear from too much wear. So excited they re-released them and just purchased my 2nd pair, contemplating getting a back-up as well. GET THEM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madewell Jeans never fail These jeans are nothing short of amazing. The perfect stretch without over stretching throughout a days wear. Definitely worth the price. The stretch absolutely caters to a woman with (me!) or without hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I am so picky about my jeans and Madewell gets it right everytime! These ones are cute and comfortable. The perfect stretch, rise and the length is so great on me. I am 5'4' and usually wear a size 30 and these fit perfectly. They are a worn out black color and I was worried that I wouldn't like the ripped bottom hem but it looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad they are back but I was a bit disappointed when I found out that my favorite madewell jeans had been discontinued. Then I saw that they had bought them back. Only issue is that I wish they were the same color as the previous model. They were black and these looked like a washed out black. Nice but the original ones looked more versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but not for my body type These jeans are really cute and I was hopeful about the fit as I have other high rise skinnies from Madewell that fit. Unfortunately the legs were just a bit too tight and the waist too big (so I couldn't try the next size up). Please Madewell, make some skinny jeans that fit those of us with thighs!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short! Who is this short inseam for?? Madewell should make a tall version if they're going to make the inseam so short. And why does the length look like a normal length on the model?? I already own a pair of black ankle jeans from Madewell and thought these would be the perfect full-length black pair. I'm 5'7", not even extremely tall, and the inseam is strangely short.
