9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lunar is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 11.
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 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 They ripped on my inner thigh I bought these pants about two years ago and loved them. They fit me and look good (finally!). However, my thighs rub against each other and soon the fabric started getting thinner and thinner until it finally ripped. I didn't even wear them very often, maybe once a week, usually even less than that. For the (high) price I thought these pants would last me forever :( . Were they really made that well?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad Pants :( First off, I love Madewell Jeans. But this pair has been a HUGE disappointment for me. I bought them over 30 days ago, and I've worn them, so I can't return/exchange or I absolutely would. They shrunk the first time I washed them, and they are my ONLY Madewell jeans I've ever had do that. All of my others are the same size and they all fit just as they did when I bought them. Obviously after washing they will fit a little more snug and then loosen up, but not this pair. I'm talking these *drew up* so badly I can't zip them and have to do the hair tie through the belt loop trick to make them fit. They look more like my 6 year old could wear them than me. :( I'll buy more Madewell jeans in the future... but I'll be much more careful to not pick one with this fabric content.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money These jeans don't even compare to the quality of a pair of similar Madewell jeans I got a year ago. First of all, they smell horrible and are made of a very thin, almost jegging material, which is not what I paid for. They also run pretty big and are especially baggy in the knees. I will be exchanging them for a smaller size because I bought them with a gift card, though they are not worth the money.
