Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ripped black skinnies I LOVE these jeans. I bought a pair maybe a year ago and left them while traveling overseas, and I was devastated. So obviously I had to repurchase them- no regrets. Even bought them in the curvy fit (because the curvy is AMAZING). The knee rips are perfectly placed and they don’t rip even further, like most ripped jeans do. The length is perfect- right below the ankle for me (and I’m 5’7”). Love love love these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE These are adorable. Bought my normal size but I wish I had sized down. They were just too cute to wait for an exchange!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants so much These are my new favorite jeans!!! They are so stretchy and comfy and stylish. I’m 6 weeks pregnant and feel bloated but even then they still feel cozy. Only thing that can compare to yoga pants haha. But makes you feel so put together. And they go with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never looking back This was my first pair of Madewell jeans in a true "denim" fabric. I've owned the sateen pants and loved them, but these are even better! I wear a 27, and jeans (including the sateen) are usually a bit snug for the first wear until they break in, but these immediately slipped on and felt incredible! The denim is so soft and very forgiving without looking slouchy. Already filling my cart with more washes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great style, but please please size down!! I have been looking for a pair of destroyed black denim in stretch with a high waist, and finally found them! When I received them in the mail I was so excited. To my dismay after wearing them out once they are too big. I’m generally a true 27, (5’6” 135lbs) but sometimes even wear 28’s in brands other than madewell. I’m very disappointed in the sizing, because I love the style and don’t want to have to wash them to shrink them down each time I want to wear them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Black jeans I love Made well, but these run slightly big in the knees and ankles. They seem to stretch out with wear which doesn’t happen to any of my other jeans.
