9" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans

9" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants These pants are soft and comfortable. I took my usual Madewell size (which if you're in between sizes in general is usually the smaller size). They might be more like a mid-rise than a high-rise but the rise is great. They are short: I'm 5'5" and they hit right above my ankle bone. It's a great length for me but taller people might have issues. I almost wish they were labeled "high riser skinny skinny sateen ankle jeans". Still, fit my needs perfectly...and a great deal on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I first bought the 28 size, but it gets loosy. So I just bought the size 27 and I think it's great. So Love it, just slightly large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from high rise for the win I bought these online on sale when the only size they had left was the 24. If I was in the store I probably would have bought a 25 but it was such a good deal I wanted to give the 24 a shot and I am glad I did. They felt snug when I first put them on but quickly became very comfortable, loosening up where it needed it but stayed snug and did not get saggy. The high rise hit right at/below my belly button and is so comfortable since I had a baby 4 months ago, holds it all in. I appreciated that the color was black and not charcoal or faded looking. They are appropriate for work or can be worn casually. For reference I am 5'3'' and about 105lbs. The length was good for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these pants! Love these, had to buy in a size 1-2 sizes bigger than I wear, because they sold so quickly and my size was out of stock. With a belt they are fine, or I may have them taken in. I have two pairs of these, they are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn! Please keep making them, and in more colors!! Especially the light blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for work or casual! I am petite - 5'3" and roughly 100 lbs - and madewell pants have yet to let me down! I bought these in black in a size 24, and they fit amazingly. nice enough to wear in a traditional office setting with a nice blouse and flats, but work great with boots or wedges as well. The quality is awesome, and at the sale price, definitely worth it! Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans! Can't say enough great things about these jeans. They are super soft, comfortable, and effortlessly chic. The sateen on the jeans is subtle, but it gives them just enough edge to stand out. I can dress them up or dress them down, and they look fabulous. To clarify, I got them in True Black, but I want to get another color too. Oh, and like most Madewell jeans, they stretch about a half a size, so maybe order a size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pants I love these pants. They can be worn for casual or dressy occasions and do not stretch out after a day at work then a night out. Even after many washes the color doesn't fade. I have several pairs of these pants and will buy more if they are available in new colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little short I'm 5'9", 145 lbs, and ordered a size 28. They are more like skimmers for me than pants, I probably should have expected this based off of the photo. I really wanted them to be longer..the price is a little steep, but the quality is great. Extremely soft to the touch. The high rise is the perfect amount - great for crop tops, or really any top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a step above standard i love the high rise skinny skinny fit already--so the added bonus of a bit fancier fabric in the sateen jeans is a welcomed addition to my wardrobe. they feel nicer than your standard denim (although, few these do beat denim!) so i like to wear them out occasionally but always to work! and as you can imagine with a name like "sateen," these are super soft. so comfy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Joining all other raving reviews - this is absolutely perfect. the fabric is so soft, the cut is perfect. Now I want to purchase all my denim in this cut.
