9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jeans! These jeans are really well made, nice thick material and fit beautifully. I am an athlete with thicker thighs and butt from weight training and these fit really nice without having a huge gap in my waist. The high waisted sits right below the belly button. Super comfortable, do not change size or shape with washing, drying, or repeated wear. Now have purchased in multiple colors because they are so comfortable and flattering. Fit very true to size. I am 5'9' 160' athletic build and the 29 fits like a dream. Color is a nice black that is a bit "washed out". Not in a way that seems warn but per the trend. No color loss with the first wash or change in shape.

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 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 Comfortable! These jeans are like wearing yoga pants - Very comfortable! Also, wore all day and didn't stretch out at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans! I was skeptical of paying this much for jeans, but I was tired of purchasing cheaper black jeans that either faded over time or stretched out after a few wears. These jeans are super slimming and so comfortable! I definitely recommend even though they are pricey for jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forever Favorite MmHMM these jeans are the BEST!!! Just purchased my second pair of these jeans and I love them just as much as the last pair! I bought a pair of these jeans almost five years ago and have loved them to death!! These jeans hold up so well - I can wear them multiple times without losing any shape or risking baggy-ness, the color is perfect, the pockets are flattering, the waist is high enough but not too high and as a whole these jeans just make me feel amazing! I decided to get a new pair and am just as pleased with them. For black jeans being such a staple in my wardrobe, these are ideal because the stretch is great to comfortably do daily activities and comfortable to travel in but substantial and sturdy enough to feel put together. I swear by Madewell jeans as a rule and these are no different!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite! These are hands down my favorite pair of jeans I own! Have felt "broken in" since day 1. Faded black wash gives them a worn in look as well. These hit at the perfect ankle length on me. For reference I am 5'6" 128 lbs. I wear a size 26.
