Finally, change is happening for the plus-size fashion, and now an upcoming documentary aims to capture the revolution in the plus-size modeling industry.

Glamour interviewed the filmmakers of ‘Straight/Curve,’ which is slated to debut in 2016. The documentary will investigate beauty standards in the fashion industry and society as a whole, showing behind-the-scenes interviews with top models, agents, clients, and photographers.

Straight/Curve director Jenny McQuaile said, “When, how, and why did size zero become the norm when two thirds of women are considered ‘plus-size’ sitting between a size 10 to 14?”  Our documentary will examine this question. There’s always been a complex relationship between the fashion industry, the media, and body image and we’re finally making a film that will investigate that.”
