Madewell Jeans Review

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I have recently become addicted to Madewell's clothes, especially their jeans. I've spent some time trying on and purchasing their clothes, and have loved my experience! Here's my quick review of their fabulous denim. Please don't hesitate to add to this! 

 

As for their denim...There are 7 main types of fits.

 

 



 

#1 - THE SKINNY SKINNY

 

1000

 

  • These jeans fit snug all the way down to below your ankle.
  • All their jeans stretch pretty good, so don't worry going down a size so they'll stretch to mold to your leg shape. Especially the Bluemoon Wash (buy 2 sizes down... seriously).

 

 



 

#2 - THE SKINNY SKINNY ANKLE

 

1000

 

  • These jeans fit just like the Skinny Skinnys, except they end above the ankle.
  • Great if you want to show off a heel or cute flats! 
  • I've found the Skinny Skinny Ankles that come in corduroy fit different than the ones made in denim. The corduroy are a bit more boxy fitting.

 

 



 

#3 - THE SKINNY SKINNY HIGH RISER

 

1000

 

  • These jeans also fit like the Skinny Skinny's except for their waistline is about 2 inches higher.
  • These are great if you are comfortable with your belly region and you like to wear shirts tucked in, showing off a belt.
  • These pants are also great for women that hate it when pants are so low they feel they're always pulling them up.

 



 

#4 - THE LEGGING JEANS

 

 

1000

 

  • These jeans fit much like the Skinny Skinnys except for they're made out of a lighter denim fabric. 

 

 



 

# 5 - THE RAIL STRAIGHTS

 

1000

 

  • These are Madewell's straight leg jean.
  • They are snug to about the knee and then straighten out. 
  • If you are scared of skinny jeans, this is a great alternative. They are still lean with out being too snug.

 

 



 

#6 - THE BOOT LEGGER

 

1000

 

 

  • These are Madewell's flared jeans.
  • They are snug to about the knee and then flare out more dramatically than the straight leg.
  • These are great for women that have more curves and want a flare at the bottom to flatter their leg.

 

 



 

 

#7 - THE BOY JEAN

 

1000

 

  • This jean is for women that want a free, casual look.
  • They look best rolled up a bit at the ends with a flat for contrast.
  • They fit loosely on all parts of you leg.

 



 

 

Hope this was helpful! Again, feel free to add on!

Jayne, this is so great, thanks for posting! I have been wanting to try Madewell never try the jeans on when I'm in the store. Now I know what to look for!

~~This is a bad time for Madewell jeans.

 

I’m an athletic, small size 24, with a slightly round butt from yoga and running. I wear skinny skinny jeans to show off being fit and slightly lean. Madewell’s new skinny skinny jeans make me dumpy.

 

Madewell's new jeans do exactly the opposite of what is advertised. They stretch out in hours, sliding down, and pressing the top of the butt down (not just in), as that becomes the area holding up the jeans. Uncomfortable, unflattering and constantly pulling them up does them no favors. If this happens to you, and it will if you buy them, return them even though they have been worn. I contacted customer service and they allow it. As they should.

 

The denim leggings look interesting but the washes aren’t attractive. If they come in a solid dark blue, solid dark black, solid color or white, I’ll try them, since they aren’t the same fabric as the jeans. And I am in the habit of shopping at Madewell, after 5 pair of great jeans before last summer’s tragic “upgrade.”

Interesting to hear the updates, since they're really pushing their new revamped jeans.
