"Thank you!" to Posey (check out her great blog here) who shared with us her review of these jeans plus several real-life images (how fantastic does she look in them!?!)
After reading your posting on the Madewell "Rail Straight" white jeans, I went to my Madewell store to check out some of their spring goodies. (My measurements for reference: 5'8'' tall, 24 in. waist and 31 in. hips.)
I tried on the white version of the "Rail Straight" jeans in a size 25 waist, which is my usual J.Crew jean size. They were too big in the hips and butt area. I was surprised to find that their smallest size was 24, but they were still too big in the hip area but snug in the butt area.
In both sizes the thigh area was kinda tight, but the denim was structured enough not to reveal any of my nooks and crannies. They were really low-rise. When I sat down in them, I had a sudden "crack-attack."
I talked with one of their associates and she said the best thing to do would be to size down because after a few minutes of wear they stretch out a lot.
They were OK jeans with a teenie-bopper feel, but I'm sure there are some skinny white jeans that are better suited for grown-ups. Hope this was helpful!
"Thanks!" again to Posey for her fabulous review! (Incidentally, I am loving her ballet flats in the images! Are they the J.Crew Salina flats?)
What are your thoughts on the Madewell Rail Straight Jeans (do you like/dislike the fit)? Are you considering or already have purchased this jean? Have you seen this jean in person? What are your thoughts on Madewell denim in general? :)
