10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Chewed-Hem Edition

10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Chewed-Hem Edition is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LIVE in these Jeans I'm a size 26, 5'8 and 120 lbs. These jeans fit like gem, I get a confidence boost when I wear them, they're so flattering. I love the button accent, and the chew-ed hem though I wish they were the tattered hem from an older version that sold out, but these are better to dress up and dress down. I love wearing these with loafers or white converse. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pair Soooo comfortable!!! These jeans are not only very flattering for a girl with hips but they r super comfortable! I love the length and the fit! If u want them to be very snug I might size down but I kept to my true size and they fit close but not too close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit like a glove! I ordered these after purchasing another style in store and needed a size smaller. They're my absolute FAVORITE jeans. They're not too stretchy like most other designers out there and they feel like REAL jeans. I do with they were a tad longer, but I get it with he chewed hem. The 10" rise is perfect and hold in my 'mom belly' without looking like 'mom jeans'. I'll definitely buy another pair when I'm ready!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AT LAST - the perfect high waist jean I've been waiting 3 months for these jeans to come in stock in the shorter hem and last week, the stars finally aligned! Being 5'2'', 120 lbs, I tried the 26 on in store back in September and fell in love but wished I could keep the chewed hem. I almost purchased them and had them hemmed for free as a raw edge hem but the woman at checkout informed me I could buy them online in a shorter hem *with* the chewed hem version. Just yesterday, they arrived and I immediately slipped them on. The front pockets are so slimming and flattering and my bum looks particularly on point. I WILL say... that I kind of wish I went with my original purchase and had them hemmed to a raw edge. After wearing the short version with the chewed hem, I'm not sure I love the way it looks with booties. Sneakers + flats? Yes! Just a bit of advice for any petite girls holding out for the short inseam - it's just as good to do the regular and get it raw edge hemmed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! This is my first pair of Madewell jeans and I was unsure of what to expect. I noticed the quality of the product right away and when I tried them on, they were a perfect fit and so comfortable! I will definitely be buying more Madewell jeans in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Trendy Jeans! Ok you know those exercise pants that you don’t want to take off because they’re so comfortable and make you look good? These jeans are the same!! Bought the black and loved them so immediately ordered the blue. Very comfortable, slimming too due to high rise waste. I like the buttons. I do need a belt, but true to size. Stretchy and tight but sooooo comfortable. And the chewed hem was different on each pair. I can just see the people cutting the hems laughing at us paying for “chewed” edges. But fun and look great with booties!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection These jeans with the chewed hem and high rise are a perfect addition to my wardrobe. I am 5'6" and weigh 135 and I purchased the 27. They fit like a glove. I love how they pull my stomach in and how I can wear a shirt tucked in or left out. Super cute, great length, and great fit. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans but I sized up These are my favorite jeans right now! Pros: Sturdy but stretchy--fantastic denim weight and quality. The color is perfect, and I adore the distressed hem and button fly details. Cons: the whiskered fade pattern at the hips does a great job of visually simulating jeans that are too small in the hips. The back pockets do not make your butt look great--something about the size/placement. They do stretch out after a while when you're wearing them. Sizing: I usually wear a 29 in Madewell jeans (and in fact took a 29 in the button-fly black jeans) but I sized up to 30 for these. I'm 5'6", 150, apple/ruler shaped, usually a size 8 in most brands for bottoms. 29 would button up fine, but excess negative ease in the hips causes the fly to gape unattractively between the buttons (you can see this in some of the gallery pics) and I'm not even particularly pear shaped. I think the size up is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from magic These are the most comfortable pair of high waisted jeans I've ever worn. I bought the regular length since petite was sold out. I did not like how the hem flared out since it was too long for me so I just cut of the hem and they still look good!
