9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands-Down Favorite Easy - my favorite pair of Madewell jeans ever. They feel worn in and they're flattering - and they're true to size. The construction feels sturdy so i'm hoping they're around forever.. just in case, i bought a second pair. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pair of jeans! I've owned these jeans in a different wash for about 6 months now, and they were so good that I had to come back for more! These jeans make all my others seem subpar. They fit beautifully. The biggest problem I have with pants is that I have a fairly small waist but large thighs, so often pants that fit my thighs are far too big for my waist. These jeans fit both my waste and my thighs. They have the perfect amount of stretch; they are comfortable, but the waistband isn't so stretchy that I worry about them falling down or that I feel like I have to wear a belt. Also, they make my butt look great! I think these pants do run a little big. I wear a 27 in them, but I'm often a couple sizes bigger in other pants. I am 5'2, and they are probably about 2 inches too long for me, but I just roll them up and I like how they look that way. These jeans were so good that I insisted that my best friend buy a pair, and she loves them too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fingers crossed! I am so hopeful this new iteration of lunar jeans will be an improvement over the last. (My last pair ripped in an embarrassing way during a Christmas party I was hosting!) They feel just as soft yet structured as I was hoping & are more flattering than a $250 pair of jeans I tried when I was searching for black jeans that wouldn’t rip. I’m crossing my fingers that this new version (with Magic pockets- yay!!) will hold up. I plan to wear them A LOT since they’re so comfortable, go with everything, & look great on! For reference, I’m 5’2”, 110 lbs, pear shaped, and I took a 24 (I’m usually a 24 or 25 at Madewell, 26 in other brands). They’re a bit long, but I expected that since I ordered the regular length (Too bad they don’t come in short! Maybe someday...). I will say that the tag in mine says the fiber content is 92% cotton, 6% polyester & 2% elastane, which is different from the current online fabric content description. Maybe that’s a typo on the website that will be updated soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No clue why there are bad reviews These are great jeans. Slightly faded and feel broken in already. They are 92% denim, so the stretch is great! I'm not sure why there are negative reviews, honestly. I am 5'3" 123lbs and the size 27 for perfectly! I'm totally in love. I actually paid full price for these, that's how much I love them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Going Back Honestly, this is maybe my third time repurchasing these jeans? I did have problems with the crotch ripping in one of my previous pairs, but that might just be because I wore them to death. And to death, I mean like 3-5x a week for over a year. Incredibly comfortable, but with a more structured look than a legging which I really appreciate. The wash does fade, but I've found that washing in cold water and not over-washing them helps a lot. And they make my short legs look just a teeny bit longer. Love these jeans and probably will repurchase them when this pair gives up the ghost too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best jeans ever I absolutely love these jeans. They are the perfect fabric, perfect amount of stretch, and great wash. I could live in these if I had to. Please keep making these in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from please make in 8" skinny! I loved the fit and feel of these jeans, but they were too high of a rise for my 5'1" frame. The black jeans in the 8" rise are thin and less "denim" like. Please make this for 8"!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved but didnt last long. I've owned several pairs of denim for many years, but this pair didn't last long before they finally ripped in the crotch. I am pretty disappointed because they were my go-to denim. Since this was the second pair of Madewell jeans that didn't last very long and ripped either in the crotch or under the butt, I probably wont be ordering anymore Madewell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decreased Denim Quality I have previously owned multiple pairs of Madewell's 9" High-Rise skinny jeans in Black Frost (E0257) and loved the fit. They had a hint of stretch but felt like actual denim. They have since been discontinued so I purchased these to replace them at the suggestion of the in store sales clerk. The color appears about the same but these fit completely different. The material feels stretchy like leggings or yoga pants. These jeans look and fit like jeggings which is not desirable. They also fall down easily around the waist while wearing which didn't happen before. Also, the tag in these jeans states the makeup to be 92% Cotton, 6% Polyester, 2% Elastane, not 93/5/2 as listed on the product page. Please bring back the old 9" High Rise skinny in Black Frost with the original material! So sad to have to look for a new place to by denim.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute jeans, not durable I wore these jeans a few times a week for about nine months before they ripped in the upper thigh. There is no piece of clothing I'd spend three figures on expecting it to wear out in less than a year, and this is the second time this has happened with a pair of Madewell jeans for me. I'll be buying my jeans elsewhere in the future-- a shame, since these are really cute and go with everything.
