9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Surfside Wash

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Surfside Wash is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST JEAN FOR MORE CURVY LADIES This is the best fitting/most comfortable pair of skinny jeans i've ever had. I've tried on plenty of madewell jeans and typically don't have much luck finding a pair that truly fits well on my body because they are typically cut for straighter figures. I'm 5'2 120Ibs and the 26 is perfect. I'm curvy and have a tiny waist but thicker legs. I have a hard time finding high rise jeans that don't gape in the back, fit my thighs, and are the right length. These are PERFECT. If you are curvy, these may be the best purchase you'll make this year. Another detail I love is the side stitching on the outside of the jean, I hate when you can see the seam exposed on the side of jeans, especially when its a lighter colored thread, but the way these are double-stitched makes the seam look flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite jeans! These jeans are comfy and keep their shape for-ev-er. As other reviewers have noted, they are stretchy (the fabric content is higher spandex than most other Madewell jeans). If you like old school stiff, thick denim, these may not be for you, but if you like a medium-weight stretchy denim these are great. I think that despite their stretch they still have a 'denim,' rather than legging, appearance. I will note that the whiskering on the pair I have is a little more subtle than pictured, and that they run short as most Madewell jeans do. Other than that, fit was true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and Comfortable I had never considered high rise jeans before purchasing a pair of these, but I was sold as soon as I tried them on - the fit is extremely flattering! I'm 5'1", 130 pounds and a size 27 Regular fits me perfectly. These jeans have a little more stretch than the Dayton Wash, but do not lose their shape - and they're so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite jeans in a long time! Haven't stopped wearing these since they arrived!! I am 5'6 and around 118lbs and the 24 is perfect on me. They are my favorite jeans in so long I am definitely going to order a second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Flattering and Comfortable I already have three pairs of high risers in lunar, dusty and one of the lighter denim colors from a summer collection. So I obviously love this fit. I just can't go back to lower rise jeans; I am so spoiled by these! I'd been wanting a pair of the high risers in a darker denim to dress up or down. When I tried these on, they fit like a glove! so perfect; soft, comfortable, enough stretch to be comfy, but not so thin that they look like jeggings or reveal every dimple you have; they still look like sturdy jeans. In a word, AMAZING. I didn't care what the price tag was, I felt so good in them, I was taking them home regardless. I love all the high risers, but these are my absolute favorite. the fit is perfect, the color is perfect; they're awesome. I am "obsessed" ...and I never use that word. I was able to purchase them in my pre-baby size 28, and the way they make me feel is worth every penny. I haven't felt this good in a pair of jeans since before my daughter was born! LOVE them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stretch more stretch than other jeans from madewell, which is nice if you have a smaller waist and larger hips.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wayyy to much stretch This new denim is just way to stretchy. I have a pair of the 9 inch high rises from last season and loved them, so bought these not realizing the difference in material and I was so shocked when they were delivered. Pretty much feels like your wearing thick leggings. If your looking for this, great, but if you want a real pair of jeans this isn't the pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way Too Much Stretch! Very disappointing -- especially because of the high price. These jeans have way too much stretch and quickly lost shape after a few wears. The denim is bizarrely clingy and baggy at the same time. I have another pair of Skinny Skinny High Risers in a lighter wash, they fit wonderfully and never loose shape. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice leggings! I think I've officially given up on skinny jeans. These 9" high risers are basically a pair of leggings. The denim is so thin and they have so much stretch, they are closer to leggings than jeans. Madewell is not the only one doing this. Do companies think we don't notice that they're selling a pair of leggings for over $100? I would love to find a pair of jeans that are made of thicker denim and still have the 2% stretch (hint, hint Madewell). When I tried on these jeans, I looked like I was heading off to yoga class in a pair of denim-colored yoga leggings. No thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most comfortable pair of jeans! Let me start off by saying I am a jeans snob when it comes to fit, particularly stretch. These jeans actually have some weight to them, while still offering great stretch! I am glad I invested in these, as they have already become my go-to jeans. I also love the high rise, because I'm able to sit down comfortable without any pinching, even though I ordered my true size. Overall, I highly recommend them - they'll become a staple in your wardrobe!
