Product Details
Made of a new garment-dyed Japanese sateen, these lean and sexy jeans feel like stealth yoga pants (and won't bag out by 5pm). The sky-high 10" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky new detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (plus, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable).

10" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans

10" High-Rise Skinny Sateen Jeans is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect fit for me! These pants were a love at first sight for me. I tried them on and they fit like a glove, perfect length and they hug my hips and waist very nicely. I do love the color as well. I am not sure about other negative reviews, but this was one of the better pair pants I’ve ever bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these to replace my other pair Writing this review to bring up the rating! The others were saying how awful these pants are. I bought these to replace my 9" rise sateens that were washed and dried so much that they were no longer an even and bright plum color! They are tight but not restricting. I have large calves and the pants formed around them comfortably. The 10" rise for me is more comfortable than the 9". It comes up to my belly button and it gives me more options to tuck in my shorter sweaters. I'm 5'7, 155 lbs. Originally I got a 28 to replace my old 28s, but I sent them back for a 29 and they are perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SIZE UP! Last year I bought a pair of Madewell jeans (size 26; for reference I'm 5'3", 130lb) and absolutely love them. Great quality, actually fit well (I'm a muscular gymnast, so good fitting jeans are SO hard to find) and I wear them several times a week. Thought the price was pretty good on these, so I decided to get a pair. I bought them at a size 26 and they're waaaay too small. They buttoned fine because of the high rise, but they're super tight in the front and back and just doesn't look good. Had them in the return bag within 15 minutes and ordered a size 27. Hopefully that size fits!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice pants I was excited to find these pants on sale for a great price. they fit me perfectly and are super soft and comfortable. unfortunately the first time I put them on, the back pockets ripped. The other seams held up fine, so I definitely still love the pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wine Colored High-Waist Pant These pants run quite small and do not fit like the normal pant size I usually purchase at Madewell. I am otherwise happy with them after I exchanged them for the next size up. The 10” high-waist is really nice!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unsure I did not find them to run large like the other reviewers. In fact, I thought they were tiny. I exchanged and went two sizes up. They don't have much "give" and they are rather light weight for winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks Great but Run Small I have the 10" high rise skinny jeans in regular denim and LOVE them. When I saw these I couldn't wait to get a hold of them, too. My regular jeans are a size 25 so I ordered the same size. Unfortunately, these run smaller and seem to have much less stretch/give. I've had to return them and even thought of going 2 sizes up (I could barely get these over my bum!) I'm 5'2" and jeans sizes vary by company and style between a 25 and 27. I'm hoping the next size up will fit better!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality I love the fit and the color but unfortunately the quality isn’t great. During my first wear the threading all along the back pockets cracked and popped leaving me with holes in my back pockets. It seems that the tension in thread along on the seams (side seams and pockets) is too tight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hate to say it These pants are enormous! Not only are they baggy in the legs, waist, and angles, but they are so long that I have to roll them three times to crop them at my ankles. Plus, it doesn't seem like the "magic pocket" effect is working its usual sorcery. I'm sad because I paid a hundred bucks for weird, grotesque, ill-fitting pants, but I'm going to try and make them work. I will give Madewell a pass, since their other jeans are pure heaven on earth and I'm obsessed with the Madewell aesthetic. These pants, though? Skip at all costs.
